    I will be highlighting as many kids as I can again. For new posters or lurkers there are tons of white kids all across the country who are crushing high school football but don't get the offers they deserve from the next level.

    Five guys to watch.

    Charlie Spegal- Plays RB for New Palestine High School in Indiana. They were 5A State Champs. He rushed for 3,356 yards and 70 total TD's. He has videos on his twitter of him benching 435 pounds! He runs with incredible power and balance. A load to bring down. Of course 247 lists him as a FB. He currently has offers from Army and Indiana State. http://www.hudl.com/profile/3339552/Charlie-Spegal

    Luke Meckler- Plays RB for Pine-Richland High School in Pennsylvania. He rushed for 1,492 yards and 18 TD's. He ran a 10.99 100M last year. Very fast and explosive. Runs with good power for a smaller guy. He currently has offers from Kent State and Dartmouth. https://www.hudl.com/profile/7566050/Luke-Meckler

    Tommy Christakos- Plays WR for Chaparral High School in Arizona. He caught 49 balls for 1,114 yards and 12 TD's. He is also a very good kicker and punter. A big tall kid with great speed and hands. He currently has offers from Nebraska, Arizona, Arkansas, Arizona State and Cal. https://www.hudl.com/profile/6551334/Tommy-Christakos

    Jay Brunelle- Plays WR for St. Johns High School in Massachusetts. He caught 70 balls for 1,157 yards and 18 TD's. Another big, athletic receiver who can go up and get the ball. He currently has offers from Michigan, Boston College, UMASS, Tulane, UCONN, and many FCS schools. https://www.hudl.com/profile/5340664/Jay-Brunelle

    Casey Filkins- Plays RB and WR for Lake Oswego High School in Oregon. They were 6A State Champs. He had 2,026 all purpose yards and 37 TD's. Very athletic and can do it all. Has good speed and agility. He currently has offers from Nevada, Florida Atlantic, Montana State, Brown, Dartmouth, Columbia and Yale. https://www.hudl.com/profile/6241336/Casey-Filkins

    Saw this on 247 today...four of the top six "top performers" on offense in the Dallas Regional were White.

    2. OT, Tommy Brockermeyer, Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal (Class of 2021) – Brockermeyer may have been the best pure prospect at the event regardless of class. He’s got an athletic, long frame, showed really good feet and has physicality to his game all of which made him the toughest offensive line matchup of the day. Texas already has a few Crystal Ball picks for the Longhorn legacy.

    3. QB, Chandler Morris, Dallas Highland Park – All Morris is missing is height. He earned the quarterback MVP award on the day with a really consistent, accurate performance. He has a quick, compact delivery and a batting practice type setting like this is just too easy for him. Morris also earned an invite to the Elite 11 Finals with his performance and looks like a really safe bet.

    4. QB, Haynes King, Longview – The stock just keeps on rising for King. First he ran a 4.50 in the 40, one of the fastest times of the day, regardless of position. Then he went on and showed a strong arm, accuracy and a clean delivery. This all came one day after running in a track meet and recently removed from his basketball season. King was a recent riser in the Top247 for 247Sports and the rise likely to continue. Expect him to be the most highly recruited quarterback in the country this spring. He earned an invite to the Elite 11 Finals on Sunday.

    5. WR, Riley Wilson, Prestonwood Christian – He may have arrived with less hype and far fewer offers than most of the big-name prospects in attendance on Sunday, but he took a lot of their lunch money on the field. Wilson won the wide receiver MVP award after dominating throughout the day during the 1on1s. He showed an ability to create separation but also some physicality and jump-ball ability to win over some decorated defensive backs in the red zone session.

    Nice TD reception caught on video by him during the one-on-one drills...and let the DB upsider know it afterwards.

    After poking around some more on the site, I also found this unicorn, who looks like he'll choose between either Stanford or USC.

    If both John Humphreys and Bryce Farrell stay committed that would give Stanford 3 white receivers in the last two classes. Now they just need to find a white TB.

    Great find Dolphin. WR Mason Mangum (5'11 175) out of Texas certainly has wheels. Also noticed his taller WR teammate Jackson Coker, also 2020, can really run too and might be of Division One interest as well. He is # 16 and you can see him congratulate Mangum after his dazzling 99 yard TD catch. See below.

    It is important for white skill players to show up well during these mainly black big boy combine fests. These combines act as funnels for black players to get into the big football schools. White skill players (WRs and DBs) rarely either attend or make big noise at these camps.

    As noted above there are a growing number of 2020/2021 white speedster wide receivers which is what I like to see.

    Nice to hear the big schools want WR Mangum. Very important. Nowell too.

    Rocky noted above 5-9 180 athlete Keegan Wilburn who recently blew up at a recent big Ohio camp. Ran a 4.51 4o, had a 39 1/2 vertical and a very quick 3.96 20 yard shuttle. Explosive player. Will power 5 schools come sniffing around?

    He signed with Ohio. Props to Solich for giving him an opportunity, although Big 10 schools should've been knocking on his door.

    WR Jay Brunelle made some noise at a recent New Jersey camp. As mentioned above, Brunelle has the size (6'0" 200) and hops (38 plus vertical) and speed (4.56) to get a call from the big boys.

    Top TE commits to Iowa. "Top" not because he had the most stars (only 3 by anti-White "Rivals"), but because he had the most offers (36) for a TE in the nation, including most of the SEC. Iowa had a top White TE commit in their 2019 class and now this one. They are shaping up to have a great class.

    Also a WR commits to Vandy, who's also having a great class (so far).

    Some notable recent commits:

    Dual-threat QB commits to Temple
    OLB commits to Iowa State, who’s having a nice recruiting class (so far)
    TE commits to North Carolina (seems like HC Brown is a bit fairer to White players than his predecessor was)

    And...stop the presses!
    WDE commits to FSU (yes, shockingly FSU actually recruited a White to play defense)
