    This is so true. A friend of a friend’s wealthy Alabama family have been boosters of UAlabama football for years— it’s a known fact that no recruiter better bring a white boy in to run. How absurd. I’m new to this vicious stereotypical world of HS/college recruiting. It’s sad as heck.

    Not a lot of excitement on the commitment front lately. Two solid defensive ends just signed.

    6'5" 235 Nick Fryhoff to Penn.

    6'4" 250 Anthony Franklin to Stanford,

    Highly rated Missouri WR Theo Gabrill has been offered a PWO ( preferred walk on) offer from Missouri. I am all for players signing with Power 5 schools but only if they are offered scholarships. Gabrill is too talented to be treated like that and he should look elsewhere. And tell Missouri football folks to shove it up their asses.

    Corner Canyon, the most exciting and explosive high school team in the nation ran their winning streak to 33 after downing Lone Peak, the second ranked team in the state of Utah, 35-25. It was their first real test of the season. Lone Peak has a senior DE who is a lightening quick terror off the edge. 6'4" 215 John Henry Daley. He is most likely to sign with BYU. He stripped the ball from the Corner Canyon QB and recovered it for a safety.

    In this battle of titans one of the best 2022 wide receivers in the country Cody Hagen torched the smothering Lone Peak defense catching touchdown passes of 80,52 and 12 yards. BYU is also on his trail.

    As I expected ultra athlete Will Taylor has decided to play both football along with baseball at Clemson. See above posts. He is a dual threat QB in high school but the thinking was he would play WR in college. But they recently indicated they might want to use him in a Taysom Hill type role as a primary receiver with options to line up at QB etc.. I am looking forward to watching his shocking quickness and speed out on the gridiron.

    Taylor was also a three time state wrestling champ so a top level athlete in three sports. Wow! His younger brother Paul from the class of 2023 has signed with Citadel to play baseball. His dad played football At Citadel. And his older sister Erin set the state high school long jump record in 2019. Obviously athleticism runs in his family.

    Because of his size which is roughly 6'0" 170 it appears he profiles in the long term more as a centerfielder. But unlike so many other dual athletes Taylor doesn't lean more heavily towards baseball. He likes both sports equally. I doubt he would get selected in the first round of the MLB draft but that remains a carrot that could pull him away from Clemson. My hunch though is he sticks with Clemson. I can't imagine a better pure athlete in the class of 2021 than Will Taylor.

    Maybe Scott Frost is envisioning a double TE set? Why else would he bring in two talented and swift tight ends in the same class?

    Along with deep dish stud Thomas Fidone they are bringing in James Carnie (6'5" 220).

    Heck why settle for one Travis Kelce when you can have two?

    Corner Canyon finished off their undefeated regular season with another trouncing in a 53-32 win. WR Noah Kjar set a Utah HS record with 262 career receptions and I believe he might have the TD record too. He scored three more TDs last night and has a ton of them this year.

    For his troubles he got an offer too. Drum roll please----------Weber State. Time to shoot off the fireworks and party.

    I know this the wrong thread to post this but I just need to post about an eight-grade QB in Florida. His name is Zander Smith and he is 6' 2" tall and weighs 205 lbs. He starts on the varsity team at Bradenton Christian High in Florida, in two games he has thrown for almost 900 yds and 8 tds. Don't know how good the competition was but those are pretty good numbers for an 8th grader.

    Looking up Zuzak, there was a kid named Ben Jackson ( overachiever) who had 3000 yards rushing last year......He was offered by Army to play linebacker

    I guess it’s a pretty small high school.....PSU, Pitt, etc want numbers from bigger schools, I understand......Zane Dudek played at a pretty high level school, from what I remember...
    That’s what ticks me off....

    In a surprise move highly ranked S Matthew Langlois has de-committed from Kansas State and has signed with LSU. A terrific all around athlete with speed I guess he wanted to stay home.

    Amazing stats. Teddy Ruffner is averaging almost a first down every time he runs the ball. Why would any college want that? We all know it's not
    all about winning just like in the nfl. No one copied the N.E. Patriots System. No one will in college either. They must keep the stereotypes alive. Disgusting
    treatment of the white kids all across america.

    Speaking of Pennsylvania prospects RB Drew Gallen (5'9" 165) is a human blur sprinter. Sorry for posting a false alarm but amazingly he is going the Dan Chisena route. Instead of pursuing football Gallen has committed to Penn State to run track. Unlike Dan I don't see him reverting back to football.

    There has been an uptick in white skill players signing with SEC teams. Many big names too including Matthew Langlois see above.

    Next year Ole Miss will have both Plumlee and blinding speedster WR Drew Donley on their roster.

    I'm in the minority here but I wish Langlois stuck with K-State! Guaranteed he would have seen the field earlier perhaps even as a True Freshman! Understand the Hometown offer though. Here's to hoping he's the next Craig Steltz rather than fetch boy like Nate McBride..

    Also wish Donley would bail on New Piss! Danger Danger.

    Appreciate the updates on Ruffner and Gallen! Who knows @Shadowlight maybe Gallen will give Football a go once Franklin is canned after they get whooped by The Buckeyes again.

    Yes Bech has officially de-committed from Vanderbilt. Most think he is signing with LSU. I remember his Uncle Brett. He was really good.

    Fortunately for Vanderbilt their cupboard isn't bare. WR/PR/KR/ATH Ezra McCallister is a fast exciting prospect.
