Could Coastal Carolina get a pipeline going at Maury
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
For college football coaches, getting a pipeline established is a great thing with the right high school football program.
The pipeline is essentially a series of successful signings that make it much easier for the college football program to continue to draw recruits from that school, city or region.
Maury High School is a good option for establishing that success. The Commodores are on an upswing. In 2018, they were 12-2. They improved on that mark last year going 15-0 and winning the VHSL Class 5 state championship.
Out of the 2020 senior class, Coastal Carolina landed running back C.J. Beasley.
With new offers by assistant coach Bill Durkin on Friday, the Chanticleers could land a couple of key pieces in the Class of 2022. Amarian Granger (2022 DB/WR 6-0 170) and Paul Hutson, II (2022 DT/OG 6-1 275) landed offers from Coastal.

“It’s a blessing to be looked at as a top recruit. I’m thankful for them giving me a chance to attend their school,” Granger said on Friday. “I haven’t visited there yet, but (C.J) will play there. He loves it, so I will take his word on it.”
Granger now holds offers from Virginia Tech, UVA, Old Dominion, Coastal Carolina, Syracuse, Pitt, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Liberty.

Hutson’s Coastal Carolina offer is added to offers from Virginia Tech, Old Dominion, East Carolina, Charlotte, Toledo, Maryland, Pitt, Charlotte, Southern Miss, Liberty, and William and Mary.
The Commodores met at Powhatan Field weeks ago to pick up their championship rings and celebrate their 2019 state championship win. Unfortunately, they had to do that individually on a timed schedule. The school couldn’t get all of the coaches and players together at the same time in the same place.
The team looks forward to getting together for formal practices again, and they’re looking forward to a title defense.
“Me and my guys will be ready this season,” Granger stated. “We’re going to go game by game.”
