($$) It’s been a busy Spring Evaluation period for the Ocean Lakes Dolphins. College coaches have been roaming the halls, checking transcripts, and sizing up the vast amount of talent that takes the field on Friday nights in the fall. If all is well academically, it’s easy to assume that at least 25 players on the current roster will be playing college ball at some level in the next few years. Here’s a recap of who’s who on the recruiting radar for the rising seniors.
The Western Branch Bruins are bringing in offers. There’s a “Big 4” of talent that’s attracting the most attention, but beyond those players, other rising seniors are getting looks as well. All of this recruiting action points to a promising fall for the Bruins, since the stable seems to be loaded with talent.
The presence of nationally rated wide receiver Jamil Kamara, one would expect that Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School would see more college coaches come in. Sullivan is now on the map more than ever before. Kamara hasn’t made his college decision yet, and that certainly helps all of the other players on the team.
Poquoson defensive end and full back Grayson Boyce has worked hard this offseason. He’s bulked up to about 240 pounds, adding muscle which will serve him well in his senior season. His size and football abilities also serve him well in his hunt for college scholarships. Grayson added another offer last week, bringing him to three, with more on the way.
Indian River lineman Tyler Fain is gathering lots of attention. Since blue chipper Andrew Brown left for Oscar Smith, Fain has stepped in as the dominant presence on the Braves line. He doesn’t have the name awareness that Brown built, but Fain is turning heads and causing college coaches to take notice.
The Captains closed out their recruiting for the high school class of 2013 when they added Green Run cornerback DeQuan Edwards to the fold. Recruiting happened late for the speedy DB, but all worked out for the school and the recruit.
It was just yesterday that we were sharing the good news of Michael Wyche’s progression from high school lineman to junior college “hot prospect”. Today, he picked up a college offer in his own backyard. It was an offer he couldn’t refuse.
Phoebus lineman Walter Brantley can’t wait for the day when he’s the BMOC. For those of you not picking up what I’m putting down, that’s “big man on campus”. At 6-3 and 330, Lil’ Walt, as he’s affectionately called, is literally the big man on Phoebus’ campus. It won’t be long before he’s walking the open spaces of a college campus.
