It’s hard to believe that heading into National Signing Day there are still high quality senior quarterbacks in the Central Region who have yet to find a college to call home.
With most of the attention on Brendon Clark, prospects such as K’ymon Pope and D’Vonte Waller still find themselves knees deep in deciding where they want to spend the next four years. Another top quarterback shuffling through the recruiting cards on his table is Trinity Episcopal starting quarterback Taylor David Eggers (2019 QB 6-4 220).
The Trinity product had a breakout season that watched him accumulate 2,800 all-purpose yards and 28 total touchdowns. In the process, he’s enjoyed an influx in recruiting which has watched him pick up offers from Norfolk State, St. Francis and Itasca since the start of the New Year. Each offer came within a day of one another with St. Francis being the most recent program to send attention his way.
For Norfolk State, it’s worth noting that the Spartans have invested a lot of time in starting quarterback Juwan Carter who is also a graduate of Highland Springs. Behind Carter sits in waiting two rising sophomores in Isaiah Wilson and D’Andre Thomas. However, Eggers may get the opportunity to show the coaching staff just how much his value is earlier than expected.
“I feel good and Coach Scott was very welcoming,” Eggers stated. “He was excited and said I’d have a chance to compete. I really like it there and will see how things go.”
At St. Francis, Eggers would be given a little more latitude than he would at Norfolk State. Graduate senior Bear Fenimore is prepared to move on from the program after spending the last two seasons in a St. Francis uniform. Fenimore was a transfer from the University of Houston back in 2017 and immediately took over the starting role. Last season Fenimore took 339 of 351 total pass attempts with the remaining 12 split between Jason Brown, Kamron Lewis, Tyler Magaha and Joel Denley. Of the four, only Brown and Magaha are quarterbacks and Brown will be the only prospect returning.
“They (St. Francis) would love to have me there,” Eggers said. “I’m excited to go through the process and they really would like to have me.”
Eggers is now up to 18 offers which includes: Gannon, Culver-Stockton, Bluefield, Chowan, Lake Erie, Cincinnati Christian, Greensboro, Elizabeth City State (PWO), UVA-Wise, Jireh Prep, Thiel, Palmetto Prep, Virginia Coast Academy, Virginia University of Lynchburg and Virginia Union. He’s yet to set a timetable pertaining to a possible commitment. However, with National Signing Day almost a month away, you have to believe he has given it some thought.
