    With the name and the Wake Forest offer, I’d assume he’s definitely Cade’s brother. Good athletic family!

    Troy Stellato is SKYROCKETING in the rankings, he’s now ranked #221 overall for the 2021 class. He can be a premier SEC or big school receiver as long as he picks the right school and doesn’t get the Oliver Martin treatment. I’m really excited for Stellato’s future.
    Also here is a video of him toasting the corner then mossing him while getting grabbed.

    Good news about Stellato, hope he chooses wisely!

    Noticed CU landed a WR commit from an in-state guy in Chase Penry!

    Also Jordan Lynch's younger brother Justin has committed to Temple to play QB.

    Exactly. If you're a White Kid with those numbers you're playing D3.

    Iowa received a verbal commitment from three-star 2021 ATH Cooper DeJean.
    Of the known four offers DeJean reeled in, Iowa was the lone Power Five outfit in the lot. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder draws a general "athlete" designation from 247Sports, with the outlet passing along that Iowa is looking to start DeJean out at defensive back. On the 247Sports composite board, the Ida Grove, Iowa, native slots in as the No. 11 prospect in the state for the 2021 cycle.


    DeJean only had offers from FCS schools - Ill St. / NDSU and SDSU. Iowa St. did not offer him. Looking at his profiles he was a two sport athlete in Basketball and Football. He played QB/CB in HS. Would love to see him continue as a CB at Iowa. Another fine example of the caste system at work - just plain ignoring white athletes.

    WANTED! White wide receivers who may have pro potential down the road. They are becoming an endangered species so everything needs to be done to save them from extinction. The next few NFL drafts seem devoid of white receivers so the time is ripe for replenishment. Will any of the below come through? Who knows but at least it shows there is still a pulse.

    Following up on the Iowa theme 6'4" 205 lb. 4.4 speedster Iowa native Brody Brecht is down to two schools: Iowa and Iowa State.

    Italian speedster Ohio native Troy Stellato mentioned above is also down to two schools: Ohio State and Clemson.

    Brandon Schabert is a 6'2" speedster out of Florida who has yet to commit. FIU offered.

    Brady Boyd is a Texas high school speed demon (6'1" 175) who has also yet to commit. I think some big boys are sniffing around.

    And now drum roll please and this is not a misprint. Tennessee native Walker Merrill has just committed to the Vols. Looks like their most significant white wide receiver recruit since speedster Zach Rogers who graduated in 2013. Merrill has superb speed to go along with a 39 inch vertical. A real athlete. Very impressive looking player and has a good national ranking.

    This is so exciting as most of these guys will play for big time schools and be on tv. Especially Stellato. Wow! Glad to hear about Merrill and all of the rest of the guys. Thanks for posting this! :)

    Nice update on WRs!

    Also noticed 247 compared DeJean to Sendejo! I'll take it, Iowa is the place for him to be regardless of his short offer list. Though of course I think he should have had more interest! Just not surprised anymore, see it all the time with Iowa and Wisconsin kids. They usually have FCS schools sniffing around until(if)the In state teams offers and they commit and shut down their recruitment early.

    I hate it when these guys go to the SEC, just being around that savage environment is terrible. So many Trey Quinn types who have rotted on the bench. Even if they do get lucky to play, its hard to root for their teams success. Just go to the Big Ten ( the weather sucks and the girls are fat) but its still 100 X better.

    Brady Boyd commits to Minnesota! I’m excited for him as I’ve seen him grow up from a kid to a top prospect. He used to roam the field as a kid back when I played, I think he was probably about 11 years old back when I was in high school and his dad was my coach.

    You sure do get around down there in Texas Red raider ha. I like nothing better than speedy white receivers and Boyd fits that mold. Gophers could use an injection of white skill players.

    Three top tier receivers mentioned above include Troy Stellato and Brody Brecht and both are down to two schools. Then there is Floridian Brandon Schabert who has offers from FIU and I believe Syracuse. But I have no idea where he will end up.

    Two other ranked wide receivers include Theo Gabrill and Brayden Fox. Both are 6'3" 200 pounds with speed and overall athleticism. Gabrill is from Kansas and his recruiting is still open. Fox is from Ohio and has a lot of untapped potential.

    Fox is of particular interest as he has been rising up the boards. Talk about having the right blood lines? His father is Derek Fox who played at Penn State and the NFL. His uncle is Dustin Fox the star CB of Ohio State's national championship team. He was eventually scorned ( moved to safety) by the NFL because there is a constitutional law that prohibits white cornerbacks from playing in the NFL. Dustin and Derek's uncle Tim was a star safety at Ohio State and played in the NFL for over ten years.

    Fox is being recruited by five or six Power Five schools including Rutgers and BC.

    Minnesota also has Finnigan Schirmer coming in as a track athlete. 100 meter champ from Illinois as a Junior. Either won or top 2 in the 200, and the hurdles (cant remember too lazy to google). He was a load for an outmatched football team as a running back with big time receiving yards as well. A really good sized kid that can truck you with break away speed.

    Anyways I suspect he plays football. Coach “row the boat” grew up pretty close to this kid and was under recruited as well. Surprisingly Illinois offered him last summer, but not many after that despite only getting bigger and putting up monster numbers against good competition. He was quote in an article as not wanting to play full back or having to get too big for track. He’s already 6-1 and 210-ish cut-up with a frame that could hold 235-240 and not look fat.

    Not a bad spot for Boyd!

    KState needs to offer Gabbrill! Keep us posted on Fox.

    Also noticed New Mexico landed an in-state WR in Luke Wysong. 5'10 175lbs.

    Schirmer is quite the specimen. Of course under recruited. Even with prototypical size,speed..

    Good things come in twos when it comes to white wide receivers.

    In 2019 UCLA brought in two with Chase Cota and Kyle Philips.

    Kansas is bringing in two for 2020, Kyler Pearson and Luke Grimm.

    And as reported Minnesota for the class of 2021 has speedster Brady Boyd to go along with Dino Kaliakmanis. DK will be joined by his brother who is a 4 star rated QB.

    Also not only is Will Shipley listed as the best APB for 2021, DE Jack Sawyer, a Ohio State commit is recognized as the number one DE prospect.
