Future Blue Devils: Week 4

Tracking the committed players from the class of 2014 as their senior seasons progress

As the 2013 high school football season continues throughout the country, TDD runs down the performances of each of the future Blue Devils in the class of 2014. Tinashe Bere, LB, Cincinnati (OH) Sycamore: The Aviators moved to 3-0 on the season with a 33-14 victory over Springfield. Bere made his presence felt early by ripping away the football from a Springfield runner and then returning the ball 28 yards for a touchdown - the first of his varsity career.

Zavier Carmichael, LB, Mobile (Ala.) St. Paul's: Make it two straight victories for St. Paul's after Friday night's 28-7 win over Mobile (Ala.) Rain High. The game was tight throughout the first half, but three rushing touchdowns in the third quarter put the Saints through to the victory.

Zach Harmon, OL, Toledo (OH) Central Catholic: Central Catholic rolled to an easy 35-6 victory over Perrysburg on Friday. The scary part of the story is that Harmon broke two bones in his neck and will require surgery, but is expected to be OK.

Christian Harris, OL, Suwanee (Ga.) Collins Hill: Collins Hill moved to 3-0 with a dismantling of Habersham Central High. The Eagles rolled to a 55-3 win behind a complete performance. The defense held Habersham to just 55 total yards in the first half as Collins Hill rolled to a 41-3 halftime advantage.

Johnathan Lloyd, ATH, Graham (N.C.) Southern Alamance: Lloyd led his team to a theird straight win by completing 16 of 31 passes for 241 yards. He passed for a pair of touchdown passes (31 and 24 yards) and rushed for another (7 yards).

Tripp McNeill, OL, Mocksville (N.C.) Davie County: The War Eagles dropped a third game on the year, losing to North Rowan 28-13. The offensive line did enough work to help star RB Cade Carney run it 25 times for 190 yards.

Zach Muniz, CB, St. Louis, (MO) Christian Brothers: CBC roiled to a 31-6 win over St. Louis University High. Muniz recored four pass defenses on the night.

Nicodem Pierre, QB, Miami (Fla.) Coral Reef: After rolling to two shutout wins to start the season, the shoe was definitely on the other foot for Coral Reef on Thursday night. The former number two ranked team in the country dominated every facet of the game en route to a 49-0 victory. Pierre completed just four of 12 passes for 23 yards on the night as his receivers were jammed at the line all night. It was 42-0 at halftime.

Jake Sanders, OL, Carrollton (Ga.) Carrollton: Carrollton rolled over Calhoun 42-7 on Friday night at home. The game was previewed as a local game of the week and expected to be a nail biter. However, Carrollton rolled early and the game was never in doubt.

Alonzo Saxton, CB, Columbus (OH) Bishop Hartley: Bishop Hartley moved to 2-1 on the season with a 28-14 victory over Marion-Franklin High. The game was close into the fourth quarter when Marion-Franklin received an on-side kick and marched down the field to make it 21-14 with under eight remaining. On Hartley's next series, the Red Devils (2-1) bailed out the Hawks with an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty after a stop on third down near midfield. Later, another 15-yard penalty on third down led to a 4-yard touchdown run.

Kameron Schroeder, OL, Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks: Schroeder visited Duke during his bye week.

Taariq Shabazz, DE, Kennesaw (Ga.) Kennesaw: Shabazz and the Mustangs fell to 1-1 on the season after a 34-28 loss to South Cobb. The game came down to a last minute drive in which a play-action pass caused the Kennesaw defense to bite, allowing the South Cobb QB to find his received streaking down the sideline for the go head score with less than a minute remaining.

Chris Taylor, WR, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School Nova: A fourth straight victory by 20 or more points for Taylor and his teammates. Taylor hauled in five catches as Auburn commit and quarterback Sean White completed 16 of 28 passes, which totaled up to 217 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Highlights:
