    This is so true. A friend of a friend’s wealthy Alabama family have been boosters of UAlabama football for years— it’s a known fact that no recruiter better bring a white boy in to run. How absurd. I’m new to this vicious stereotypical world of HS/college recruiting. It’s sad as heck.

    Not a lot of excitement on the commitment front lately. Two solid defensive ends just signed.

    6'5" 235 Nick Fryhoff to Penn.

    6'4" 250 Anthony Franklin to Stanford,

    Highly rated Missouri WR Theo Gabrill has been offered a PWO ( preferred walk on) offer from Missouri. I am all for players signing with Power 5 schools but only if they are offered scholarships. Gabrill is too talented to be treated like that and he should look elsewhere. And tell Missouri football folks to shove it up their asses.

    Corner Canyon, the most exciting and explosive high school team in the nation ran their winning streak to 33 after downing Lone Peak, the second ranked team in the state of Utah, 35-25. It was their first real test of the season. Lone Peak has a senior DE who is a lightening quick terror off the edge. 6'4" 215 John Henry Daley. He is most likely to sign with BYU. He stripped the ball from the Corner Canyon QB and recovered it for a safety.

    In this battle of titans one of the best 2022 wide receivers in the country Cody Hagen torched the smothering Lone Peak defense catching touchdown passes of 80,52 and 12 yards. BYU is also on his trail.

    As I expected ultra athlete Will Taylor has decided to play both football along with baseball at Clemson. See above posts. He is a dual threat QB in high school but the thinking was he would play WR in college. But they recently indicated they might want to use him in a Taysom Hill type role as a primary receiver with options to line up at QB etc.. I am looking forward to watching his shocking quickness and speed out on the gridiron.

    Taylor was also a three time state wrestling champ so a top level athlete in three sports. Wow! His younger brother Paul from the class of 2023 has signed with Citadel to play baseball. His dad played football At Citadel. And his older sister Erin set the state high school long jump record in 2019. Obviously athleticism runs in his family.

    Because of his size which is roughly 6'0" 170 it appears he profiles in the long term more as a centerfielder. But unlike so many other dual athletes Taylor doesn't lean more heavily towards baseball. He likes both sports equally. I doubt he would get selected in the first round of the MLB draft but that remains a carrot that could pull him away from Clemson. My hunch though is he sticks with Clemson. I can't imagine a better pure athlete in the class of 2021 than Will Taylor.

    Maybe Scott Frost is envisioning a double TE set? Why else would he bring in two talented and swift tight ends in the same class?

    Along with deep dish stud Thomas Fidone they are bringing in James Carnie (6'5" 220).

    Heck why settle for one Travis Kelce when you can have two?

    Corner Canyon finished off their undefeated regular season with another trouncing in a 53-32 win. WR Noah Kjar set a Utah HS record with 262 career receptions and I believe he might have the TD record too. He scored three more TDs last night and has a ton of them this year.

    For his troubles he got an offer too. Drum roll please----------Weber State. Time to shoot off the fireworks and party.

    I know this the wrong thread to post this but I just need to post about an eight-grade QB in Florida. His name is Zander Smith and he is 6' 2" tall and weighs 205 lbs. He starts on the varsity team at Bradenton Christian High in Florida, in two games he has thrown for almost 900 yds and 8 tds. Don't know how good the competition was but those are pretty good numbers for an 8th grader.
