    If you look at his highlights from that game, he was doing it against an almost systematic NFL quota of blacks on defense...in other words, I think I might have witnessed one or two White players. How many of those black players on defense that he ran through and around will receive a football scholarship...even if to a minor school?

    DonBoscos Brennan can frigging hit! Navy has got themselves an absolute steal in this young man. 1st ever 4year starter at one of the best HS in the country... Needless to say he should have more offers. He also has hundred yards rushing against in state rival and fellow powerhouse Bergen Catholic.

    After watching 114 combined points in last week's Bedlam btwn Oklahoma & Oklahoma State ....had to wonder are white defenders really that bad?? Because there certainly was NOT a white Starter out of 22 Worthy of being on either Defense ??.....(D-End Cole Walterscheid is a co-starter?) 1 of 22?? Still the disparity is eye popping...Basketball on turf....but do believe Oklahoma State under coach Jimmy Johnson could have been the 1st CFB Team ever to start no white's back in the mid 80's??

    So Outside Linebacker comes to mind for some reason. And taking a look at the Top 100 OLB Prospects from the 24 7 Recruiting Service...there are 15 white....9 Poly's...1 Native American?? & 75 black players. This would almost seem on par with the NFL.....So who in 18' could be the next Ryan Kerrigan or Sean Lee or TJ Watt??

    #4 Payton Wilson (NC)....6'-4" 225 Committed to UNC
    #13 Bo Calvert (CA).....USC.....following other LB's Porter Gustin & Cameron Smith
    #18 Jack Sirmon (TN)...Washington...Dad Peter played for Oregon & NFL/Titans
    #21 Jake Venables (SC)....Clemson who continues buck the trend on Defense; son of Def Coordinator Brent
    #25 Evan Tettersall (CA)....to Cal?
    #26 Dillon Doyle (IA)....Iowa Commit
    #34 Charlie Katshir (PA) ...Penn State
    #39 Thomas Rush (OH) ....Minnesota
    #53 Chance Campbell (MD)....Maryland
    #68 Grant Misch (VA)....6'-4" 232...Virginia
    #70 Michael Rose (OH)....Iowa State
    #80 Josh Marsh (AL)....Auburn...been a couple years since white scholarship defender has played there
    #81 Case Gatlin (FL)...Uncommitted ...Powerhouse IMG Academy
    #87 Brandon Hawkins (TX) ...Boise State
    #88 Jonathan Hess (AL) 6'-5" 215....Ole Miss

    Then went on a little further past 100.....noticed the next 8 of 13 prospects were white
    #101 Harrison Taylor (GA) 6'-4" 240....Appalachian St.
    #104 Joshka Gustav (CA) Colorado Commit
    #105 Mason Platter (WI) 6'-5" 220....Wisconsin
    #107 Zach Schlager (NE) ...Colorado State....older brother DB starter
    #108 Hunter Webb (PA) U.Conn
    #110 Rushton Roberts (FL) ...Colorado State
    #112 Morgan Ernst(TN) & #113 Brandon Mays (FL) ... Army Commits

    Iowa lands "off-the-charts" 6'3", 230lb "athlete", Ben VanSumeren.

    Only offers from Power 5 were Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota and Missouri. He was a product of Michigan and ranked the number 24th prospect in that state but neither Michigan nor Michigan State were interested???

    The Garber, Michigan product — who can deadlift 475 pounds and boasts a 40-inch vertical — emerged in the Midwest recruiting scene after piling up 77 catches for 1,446 yards and 13 touchdowns as a sophomore and junior at Essexville Garber High School. But he picked up steam at last year's Nike The Opening regional camp in Cleveland, where was rated the country's No. 1 underclassman tight end.

    His frame and speed combination translate to any number of positions at the college level, including linebacker, where Iowa primarily recruited him. The 247Sports Composite gives him three stars and ranks him the No. 24 2018 prospect from Michigan. Rivals gives him two stars.

    No wonder "Butch" Jones is out at Tennessee. He's such a Caste clown that he didn't even recruit an in-state White 4-star ILB that most other SEC teams offered, including Alabama.

    Wow that young man has some serious offers! Be interesting to see where he chooses to go. And ya what a frigging knob Butch is! Glad he's done.
