    6'5 245lb DE Rocco Marcelino is a name to remember. Was a standout at the recent Indianapolis Combine. Reportedly explosive and has good bend. Only ONE D-1 OFFER, from Air Force. Hopefully that changes ASAP! Being a scout would be so easy sometimes.

    4.8 40
    32.5 inch vert
    4.3 ss

    Others mentioned were QB Ben Gatkowski 6'0 180 class of '24 and LT Owen Strebig 6'7 250 class of '25!

    * The 3 I mentioned are from Nebraska, Indiana, and Wisconsin. Plenty of under recruited talent in Midwest.

    Yea I have become pretty good at telling whether or not they are "off" and require a bit more research.

    BTW did anyone else see Desmond Ridder's "off-white" shirt he wore when he was drafted? Just thought that was an interesting thing to wear/statement to make.

    That's for sure. Marcelino who I just mentioned has visited with Wyoming and Kansas St. since that great combine showing. Should be getting offers from those 2 as well, soon!

    Good news on Marcelino!

    Gotta say I appreciate you sticking around. The draft is always deflating and I am burnt out currently so I know how you feel (although the Packers draft was on another level of pure White replacement). It's easy to get frustrated and just give up. I still think tracking White athletes at every level is worthwhile as at least it is all documented. We just need to find out how to add some fuel to the fire to get the word out to a greater audience.

    Pops is black but kid is White. And to the average fan who won't know his father's heritage, they will just see a White CB

    Florida received a verbal commitment from 2023 three-star ATH Creed Whittemore.
    Whittemore (5'11.5"/175) is a fantastic athlete who played QB in high school and was wildly successful. He accounted for over 4,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in the last two years using his speed and twitch to run a spread-option attack. Due to that, most project him as a WR at the next level despite his position in high school. He ran a 10.85 100 meter dash in track, where he also won a district title as a junior. He's got football in his blood as well, with his father playing WR for UCF and both his brothers playing WR, one already with the Gators and the other one at Troy. He's rated as a three-star by the 247Sports composite, the 33rd athlete and the 78th player out of Florida, but he's seen more favorably by 247 themselves, who have him rated as a four-star. With more time to work on his craft as a WR, there's a good chance he could shoot up, especially as he goes through the various camps.

    Nice find! It's about time the Nevada Wolfpack land a white RB again! Grew up watching Chance Kretschmer (2001-2004) & Luke Lippincott (2006-2009)

    That's one athletic family! Creed Whittemore could be a Swiss Army Knife like John Rhys Plumlee! Nice stats! Hoping 6'-4" WR Trent can have a break out season with more consistent QB play at Florida!

    Speaking of tall WR's to keep an eye on...

    6'-3" 206 Ronan Hanifan from Cambridge Mass getting big time Offers from Notre Dame, LSU , Ohio State, Alabama, Clemson, USC, Oklahoma, Miami , Penn State , Tennessee, Wisconsin , Nebraska, Boston College and others....
    As a "Athlete" is rated the 31st best according to 24 7 Sports; 41st WR according to Rivals

    Yessir @TwentyTwo ! Nice to see Nevada with another pale face RB! I remember Lippincott well, Kretschmer was a blast from the past.

    Whittemore sounds like a stud, like the rest of his family!

    Hanifan already getting racially slotted as a TE! Wherever he chooses, I hope he goes as a WR.

    Here's a Chicagoland OL that is racking up offers as a 3 Star OT. 6'6 295 Boston College, Kansas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Michigan have all recently offered. I like To hear this kid has really transformed his body. Down from 350 and offers are piling up! Chris Terek is a name to know.

    Texas rb/lb prospect Dawson Pendergrass has signed with Baylor. They apparently want him at rb. Kid is pretty good and I hate to say this but this kid might have an NFL career as a safety. Really good ballhawk. At 6'3" though I wonder if hes going to get blown up by good college linebackers. Luke Staley was a tall rb but at this point this kid is pretty skinny though he is listed at 210 pounds. By my count that gives us 5 scholarship rbs as where last years was right around 10. Should be hundreds.

    Question. Is wr Kyler Kasper totally white. I'm very aware of who his father is/was but this kid does not look white to me.

    His mom is Lisa Cleppe Kasper. She’s definitely White. Not sure where he got his height, but he’s got his dad’s “freakish athleticism” in a 6’5” frame.

    Wow, a legacy guy with that size and athletic ability. Please tell me he’s a highly recruited WR prospect? Though I won’t be holding my breath….

    Here’s a picture of him and his dad. Dad is definitely white. He might as well keep that curly hair that raises suspicion of race. Maybe Kasper can use it as camouflage like Weddle did with the blackout mask and undershirt.

    What is Ben Shapiro….umm, I mean Ben Sharp Arrow smoking. Kyle Kasper is about as White looking as one could imagine. And I wouldn’t say his hair is curly, like some middle easterner, it’s wavy like many Europeans. Matthew Boling comes to mind.

    He had to walk on?
    What do you need to do to get a GD scholarship these days if you’re a white?

    Didn’t know if this has been reported here, but Eli Holstein has committed to Alabama. May make a difference in the path Arch Manning takes. It’s down to Georgia or Texas is the rumor.

    I’d rather see Manning go somewhere besides the predictable few schools. UGA has a backlog at the position and Texas has Quinn Ewers and Hudson Card. So many other schools he could choose from.
