    I am putting a CBF on the Iowa State WR commit Sterling Galban. CBF stands for Caste Buster Flag. He is 5'10" 175 lbs., your basic slot size but he can stretch the field too. He has wheels. 4.4 40 yard dash. Nice pick up!

    Carter Bradley is Gus Bradleys son. Also Will Mallory is Jaguars special teams coach Mike Mallory son. Almost feels like the few white guys that get chances either have to be no brainers or their family has some connection to football with their dad or grandpa.

    Right dolphins15. It's not just a feeling. It's a fact! Family connections help, a lot! However, you'd be surprised at how many so-called no brainers never get an opportunity. Austin Proehl, Ricky Proehl's son was not that impressive in HS signed with UNC. As with Christian McCaffrey. His stats in HS are not eye catching as some are, but because of his dad, he got some attention. Still, I believe CM only had a few D-1 offers! If not for his dad, I don't think he would be where he is. The Class of 2014 in NC had 3 RB's that rushed 3,000, 2,000 and 2,000 yards and are no where to be found. More than likely had no connections. If there are guys like that in just my state, NC, that get overlooked. How many others are out there. I'm amazed, quite frankly, that Cade Carney is at Wake Forest! He was good in high school, but I've seen better players go no where. That's what's crazy. I believe there are as good if not better players out there that never get a chance. Hopefully, CM can become a STAR in the NFL and open the door for other white RB's like Carney and others.
    No question son's of former NFL and college players get favoritism, but if that's how the door has to be opened, so be it!
    One CF member once posted that half of the RB's that led their state in rushing were white. What happened to those players? Maybe someone could find out when that was?

    3-Star QB commits to BC.

    I thought it was worthy enough of mention because of BC tendency to recruit quotabacks, which diminishes the watchability of an otherwise watchable team as well as keeping them from getting back to the competition level they should be in.

    Any of you guy's have free time check out HiddenGemRecruiting page on Twitter. Quite a few updates on our under recruited HS athletes!

    Caste busting alert. Imagine a guy around the same size as and reminds me of Jeremy Wariner
    who if people recall was going to play football for Baylor. Jackson Gleeson is that guy at 6'1 160 lbs.. Legit 4.3 speed and one of the fastest in the class of 2018. Big time wheels and nice to see him land at a Power 5 Conference school.
    Maybe Dolphin has brought up another guy whose name I just bumped into when I was looking up Gleeson's 100 and 200 meter exploits. Imagine another Matt Jones? So another "CB" alert goes out to 6'6" speedster Jake Lanier also out of Texas. Ridiculous speed but I have not seen much in the way of recruiting yet. He is listed as a WR/TE. With his size speed ratio you would think everyone and their mother would be knocking down his door.

    Slade Bolden the RB from West Monroe High School in Louisiana received an offer from Alabama! I would never advise him to go there but it is good to see a big time program offer one of our guys.

    I like Bolden but there is no way in hell Alabama would ever use a white rb. He is also a talented wr and db and I think that is where most teams are recruiting him. Most likely for the Welker. If he signs with Alabama and gets a shot at rb I will personally give every caste member $ 20 who calls me on it.

    I really think Bolden will wind up at LSU his favorite team growing up. They want him in the slot or rb but LSU does not use a slot really and the reason Trey Quinn never got his talents utilized is that LSU historically does not throw much so I could see him playing rb with about a 95% guarantee. According to the article I just read Bolden is really leaning toward LSU and nowhere else.

    QB Ben Bryant has re-opened his commitment from Wisconsin after receiving an offer from Georgia and the Badgers landing Cincy HS QB Chase Wolfe.

    Wisconsin lands 6'5 TE/DE Cormac Sampson another in state kid!

    Some of our guys have picked up some steam lately in recruiting.

    Coleton Beck picked up a big offer from Pitt. Sounds like if Virginia Tech offers that's where he wants to go, not sure if they will or not.

    Draycen Hall picked up his first FBS offer that isn't an academy in Idaho!

    Brendan Mitchell has picked up some steam with offers from BYU, Montana, and Air Force!

    Justin Bruno saw his recruiting pick up after he ran a 4.55 at a sparq combine. He has picked up offers from Richmond, Liberty Chattanooga, Colgate, UMASS, Citadel, UNC Charlotte, Southern Miss! Like they couldn't tell he was fast before.

    Elijah Kothe also picked up a big offer from Colorado!

    Nice find on Hall and Bruno Dolphin. I knew of Hall but did not expect him to get any D1 offers. Idaho is not Nebraska football but they are D1 and it would give us another rb at that level. I had never heard of Bruno before but he is pretty good and plenty fast but he has that annoying Cole Gest ( Indiana freshman ) short choppy stride. It look like he is sprinting in place half the time though the kid can juke with the best of them. I still think Beck is only being looked by recruiters as a linebacker despite the 10.6 100 meter speed. Virginia Tech has rb Coleman Fox as a rb and sad to say I saw it the other day as Fox is 6th on the depth chart following spring ball. Just sad.

    I forgot Idaho is moving down to FCS. But nonetheless it gives Hall another place to play.

    Sorry I got Colton Beck confused with Colton Dubots. Dubots is going to Wash. State though HE is the one that is projected as a linebacker. I know little of Beck but that will change.

    I take it back again. Colton Beck is the rb/db prospect out of Virginia who also has 10.60 100 meter speed. He has an offer form Pitt. to play rb where if I recall Pitt. has not played a rb since 1992 in underrated Tim Collicio who actually out rushed NFl great ( oh god his name escapes me but he played for the Jets for many years. Curtis something
    My mom passed away last Monday. It is kind of hard to focus when you are numb as hell. What really sucked is we have not gotten along for years though we went out to bunch for Mother's Day and had a really good time. Got a call from my sister who I have not talked to in 5 years and when I heard the voice my heart sank. Really suck people.

    Randon Jernigan has picked up more offers from Richmond, Liberty and Colorado State. He is also a really good baseball player so hopefully he sticks with football. McCaffrey Dude, I'm sorry for your loss. Stay strong man.

    Thanks guys. Never heard of Jernigan until right now. Where do you find these guys? There are so few white 3 star athletes on any recruiting site I don't know how I missed him. He looks a lot smaller than his listed height and weight but I would love to see him go to Colorado State. I miss the late nineties with rb Kevin McDougal. CSU used to be a bastion for white skill players. Not so much anymore. They used to actually use corners like Brady Schneider, Ben Mastapoleo , Ben Stratton and Justin Gilmour.

    It took a lot of research. I've posted about all of these guys earlier in this thread. I think I posted over 100 skill position white kids.
