Recruits On Campus for Today’s Spring Game


Plenty of recruits were in town for the Spring Football Finale.  You can consider them all important, but I think it’s safe to say Lafayette’s Jedrick Wills is the most important.  The Top 10 offensive tackle and top 30 overall prospect in ’17 was on the field before the game with his high school teammates, Walker Wood and Landon Young.

The two other big names in town were Justin Foster and Javonte Richardson.  Foster is a Top 100 player from North Carolina, ranked as the #3 outside linebacker in the nation with Clemson, Alabama and Tennessee at the top of his list.  Richardson is the Cats’ highest-rated commit in 2017.  The 6’4″ WR was joined by a few other future teammates — RB Michael Warren, DE Alex King and OT Austin Dotson.  

As for guys that will be seeing the Commonwealth Stadium field much sooner, 2016 defensive back Tobias Gilliam was happy to make the trip down from Ohio.

Others from his class that made the trip: CB Jordan Griffin, RB Benny Snell, LB Jaylin Bannerman, DT JaQuize Cross and Landon Young, fresh off of a Friday fishing trip with Kash Daniel.

2017 Florida defensive tackle Lamonte McDougle was all smiles with Eddie Gran.  The son of a former first round pick also has offers from UCF and West Virginia, and is being considered by other prominent Florida schools.  He told Scout after his visit that he also plans to visit Vanderbilt and Washington State.

Of all the Tweets from excited recruits, this one from 2017 Florida WR D.J. Edwards is by far my favorite.

      Miss Rick, basketball is ok for lady’s like you, but the king of sports is football and is just to complicated for you. 28,000 were there more than attended big blue madness. So like I said troll, mosey on over to the other side.

      Yea but we outdrew them for the Spring game – although the 28K estimate was quite generous.

    28K had to have been the allotment reserved–we weren’t close to that. That being said, it’s posters like Rick_S that make me hate a great number of our basketball “fans”.
