Welcome to another edition of the Recruiting Recap! Sorry for being a tad late today. Those who are returning already know the drill, but for those who are new, this recap tallies up all of yesterday’s offers and commitments. We also do a sleeper of the day and pickout a player who is seeing their recruitment heat up if applicable.
We have been talking with several college programs the last few days, they agree that recruiting is definitely down right now. A lot of budgets are getting cut. What does this mean? You need to be active on social media. Make workout videos, show film from practice that is just starting up, if you long arms, show off that wingspan! There are plenty of ways to get noticed, but if you have any questions I can answer.
Preseason All-State content will start publishing this weekend, so stay tuned. Always a little hard to keep everything organized when players transfer just a week or two before school starts.
Colleges, we got that premium info on the class of 2021 and 2022 will also have additional info soon here. We are also going to be dropping our rankings after our preseason content is done with.
Scoop: Army picks-up another solid commit here in the state of Georgia with a slew of D1 offers. The 6′ 220 lbs. linebacker is someone we are big on, and projected to be a FBS recruit. He had 71 tackles on the year, and 21 of those came for a loss. Carter is very good at reading the gaps, he’s a smart player with a high IQ and is technically sound reading the ball carrier and squaring up his hit. We like this commit a lot for Army here, they had to beat some tough local competition to go along with two other FBS programs in Eastern Michigan and Coastal Carolina.
2022 Lee Co.
2021 North Gwinnett
Sleeper of the Day
2021 North Forsyth
The big powerful back is hyped up a good bit from the staff during the fall, so we gave him a long look. He does a nice job lowering his pads before contact and drive his legs through the attempt. Does a nice job of falling forward, always seems to get the extra yardage. Very good fit for option schools at the b-back spot. Lucero has above average acceleration and the frame to continue to add weight and be a lot closer to 220-230 at the next level. Delivers the punishment as a runner, their is nothing soft in the way the 2021 recruit plays the game. Lucero could work on his lateral quickness a good bit more, but he’s not going to be juking too much either way with his current skill set. He is a specialized back for sure and his acceleration allows for him to rip off big runs here. Lucero is getting a lot of college interest, but nothing concrete with an offer yet.
