HEATING UP

Mackenny has seen his recruitment really heat up in the month of September. The 2023 OL/DL is coming off a recent 27-21 victory over crosstown rivals Wheeler where Mackenny had right at a half a dozen tackles for loss while also playing stellar on the OL. The junior has accumulated recent offers from Virginia Tech, Louisville, Virginia, BC and Georgia State. Standing at 6’6″ with an 81″ wingspan, it’s easy to see the 2023 athlete will be coveted by P5 programs for the foreseeable future.


SLEEPER OF THE DAY

Michael Merriweather
2022 Carver-COL

Merriweather is definitely another D1 caliber DB over at Carver-Col. He hits with authority. Plays with a ton of intensity and physicality. The 2022 recruit needs to calm down at times and be more patient with his pursuit angles, sometimes he comes in too hot, but his acceleration and ability to hit top speed is also what makes him so interesting as a recruit. Merriweather is a D1 athlete. He looks pretty good in coverage, jams receivers at the LOS, and moves feet well with the WR for a safety. Wouldn’t mind seeing him more in man coverage. Open field tackling is just so good. By far his best skill set. Another interesting aspect to Merriweather is the improved weight gain over the last year, and the 2022 DB is now at 195 lbs. – a 13 lbs. increase. The senior holds offers from Alcorn State, Lenoir-Rhyne, Tenn Tech, and Stetson at the moment but we think more D1 programs should pull the trigger and offer. Merriweather does everything at 100 MPH and this season has very good film against top teams in the state of Georgia. He is versatile coming off the edge as a blitzer, jamming a WR at the LOS or playing deep safety and getting downhill and stopping a play for short yardage.
