Episcopal cornerback Elijah Gaines has quietly built a fantastic offer list
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Because the Episcopal School plays a schedule that keeps them out of playing many VISAA teams, news about them is rather quiet. They’ll play Woodberry Forest at the end of the season as always, and the Maroon visit Catholic High School in Virginia Beach on September 20.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in Northern Virginia. Continuing our countdown at number 12 is Chantilly lineman James Pogoreic.
#11 Elijah Gaines (2020 CB 6-3 200) – The Episcopal School
He’s a New Yorker who came to Virginia to play football and study at Episcopal.
At 6-3 and 200, Elijah Gaines is long and athletic as a cornerback. That’s college ready size. His top time of a 4.5 forty is equally impressive.
It’s no wonder that his offer list is extensive.
On June 22, he announced that he would narrow his double digit list down to seven. That list includes Penn State, Notre Dame, Duke, UNC, UVA, NC State, and Michigan, in no particular order.
Gaines has set no date for a commitment announcement and he has insisted that his recruitment is still open.
