With camps, combines and 7 on 7 in full swing, this past week has been filled with recruiting news here is a quick look.
Congrats to Jack Maly, 2015 LT from Regis Jesuit, on his much deserved and overdue first offer. South Dakota was smart to offer the 6-5 265 pounder with a great frame and solid feet. Maly reports a good camp at Air Force earlier this week. Now Maly heads east for Ivy and Patriot League camps. Mid majors need to take a look. Jack's offer sheet will grow this summer.
Doug Kimmel Scout's Mountain Region analyst as well as others, were impressed with 2015 Lakewood High School defensive lineman JR Maola's measurables. Film review shows a young man with great talent and room to improve on technique. Once talent and technique mesh, watch out!
2015 Mullen safety James Jones feels he did well while camping at Boise State. Jones, who holds offers, from Morgan State, Hawaii, Grambling and Montana, is done camping for the summer and plans on concentrating on helping his Denver Mullen squad back to the top of 5A football. Beyond his four offers Jones reports Boise, Fresno State and Nevada are showing increasing interest.
2016 Overland WR/S Samuel Warren turned heads at Wyoming camp earlier this week. Relatively unknown due to an injury last season, Warren reports the Cowboy staff was surprised he was only a junior and said, "I was one of the best out there and they talked to me about offers."
Warren's teammate 2015 corner Josh Wright also had a nice showing at the Wyoming camp.
Denver East safety Jalen Moore picked up his first offer this week from South Dakota State, Moore looks to camp at SDSU at the end of this month.
6-4 230 Pine Creek DE Josh Klyn is putting it out there camping at Air Force earlier this week, Iowa today, UCLA on Sunday followed by Wyoming on Monday and Tuesday. I hope his folks are logging frequent flyer miles.
Another frequent flyer is 2015 Chaparral QB Kyle Gallup. Last week Gallup camped at Central Florida and now that he is back home he is concentrating on team activities. Next up for Gallup is Prime 21 camp in Dallas as well as camp at North Texas.
2015 Denver East safety Jordan Willis, a member of the Angel's state title basketball team, has received attention this week for his strong play on the court. Regarding football, the 6-5 receiver says South Dakota, Northern Colorado and Utah State are showing more attention.
2015 Bear Creek offensive lineman Tony Bello camped at Colorado State earlier this week and is now in Tucson camping with UofA.
Really impressed with the upside of Sebastian Sock from Valor Christian. Sock, a 2015 prospect is crazy long at 6-5 220 pounds. Also, he is comfortable in the slot, on the line or as an outside backer. Most important is his willingness to block. With his frame, he has unlimited room to add good weight. Keep an eye on Sock.
