Ah ok. His dad looked totally white. Thanks for clarifying
I’m sure he still gets labeled as “white boy” by other teams when they go against him. Imagine Twitter when he sees the field at CB in college, they will have no clue.
Kentucky Speedster WR Jackson Hensley committed to Harvard. Another stellar White Athlete to The Ivy League.. Should've have had more offers to his name, same ol story.
Thanks Bucky. Yes indeed Hensley (legit 4.4 speed) is very fast and is yet another top tier athlete that has opted for the Ivy League which is generally considered a step down from the big boy schools.
But you wouldn't know it from the local Kentucky press. Hensley is not from a big town area so the press is viewing his track to Harvard as hitting the big time. And I agree. Forget this junior league label that the media puts on the Ivy League. There are some real white skill NFL talents playing in this league and the NFL should wake up to that fact.
Oh by the way these Ivy league players are smart ( no kidding) and they won't cause an ounce of trouble in an NFL locker room.
I have been watching football a long time and I know good talent when I see it and there are a plethora of good white skill players in the Ivy League these days. I think the line play is probably a step down in general and QB play isn't consistently as good and depth is missing but that said there are some tremendous athletes playing in the Ivy league.
And why not? Talk about tradition.
While I might prefer that say Tennessee goes out and recruits players like Hensley, I take some solace that he is heading into a proper football league just the same.
Good points, it is a big time deal for a kid from the Hills of Eastern Kentucky headed to Harvard. Great for him looking forward to following his career.
Wasn’t sure where to post this but this was pretty cool/interesting to look at. Almost all of the top DB’s in Oregon are white kids. Coincidentally none of them are being recruited.
Makes one wonder how many other states best DBs are white kids being ignored during the recruiting process. It's not a lack of white athletes playing the game at the high school position its the blatant discrimination that filters them out before they get to the next level.
Kent State landed an athletic Safety in Luke Murphy. 6'1 185lbs 4.56 40 and nearly 40inch vert!
UC Davis with a WR commit
Appalachian State with a Edge commitment from Sunshine State
Stanford with a DT commit!
Ok State with another DT commit.
CMU with a massive 6'6 250lb DL recruit
What is going on with the caste coaches? As reported at CF Penn State just signed a stud white WR for 2021 (speedster Liam Clifford) and now Stephen Gosnell has flipped his commitment to North Carolina and will play for Mack Brown.
I suspect these are just dipping the toes in the water type of recruiting for these caste hound head coaches but it is still pleasantly surprising.
Best news is Gosnell is a speed demon big play wide receiver with true 4.4 speed. He is averaging nearly 25 yards per catch in HS this season.
MIA here at CF are high school football followers Dolphin and Heretic.
RB/WR Casey Filkins flips commit from Cal to Stanford. Let's hope he becomes another McCaffrey type weapon for Stanford.
This is from an article about Filkins...
He ripped it up in Oregon as a running back but Cal was going to move him to slot.
What a bunch of asshats these recruiters are.....This is great news.
Filkins was already very familiar with Stanford after several visits and he camped with the Cardinal in June before his junior season. He excelled in that setting as a receiver, which is the position Cal recruited him to primarily play while Stanford wants him as a running back who can also split out wide.
That distinction was very important to Filkins because he has played running back his entire prep career at Lake Oswego and has been nearly unstoppable at that position. His performance at Stanford's camp -- also at recruit camps and in games-- shows his versatile skill set that makes him a difficult cover out of the backfield or lined up at receiver.
