JCFootball.com Recruiting Blog - 5/1

It's that time of the year when bouncebacks start popping up at local junior colleges and this year is no different. Here's a couple we have learned about as well as a look at several other prospects who are starting to see interest from four-year schools...

Long Beach DT David Davis - Long Beach already has three bouncebacks on their spring roster with the additions of Davis (Washington State), LB/DE Corey Waller (Washington) and WR Josiah Blandin (Arizona State). Davis could be the best of the trio as he came out of high school with a reputation of being a disruptive force along the defensive front and the ability to collapse the pocket on passing downs. Davis comes from great bloodlines (his grandfather is former Green Bay Packers DL Willie Davis) and he has a chance to receive quite a bit of attention now that he's enrolled at Long Beach which is a program on the rise with new head coach Brett Peabody leading the way.

Riverside WR Devon Blackmon - Blackmon, an Oregon bounceback, is one of the fastest JUCO wideouts in the country and could easily put up some huge numbers in an explosive Riverside offense. Blackmon had offers from pretty much the entire Pac 12 coming out of Summit (Fontana, Ca.) High School and was talking to schools like Washington, California, Colorado and Utah before deciding to enroll at Riverside.

Independence CB T.J. Reynard - Reynard led the Pirates in tackles last season with 88 and also tallied one interception and seven passes defensed as a freshman this past fall. He's still waiting on his first offer, but this spring he's seen lots of interest from schools and he's taken visits to see Colorado and Wisconsin who both could be close to offering.

Independence CB Richard Chungong - Sounds like Chungong will be visiting Western Illinois very soon as he recently received an offer from the Leathernecks. As a sophomore this past season, Chungong had 41 tackles and tied for the team lead in passes defensed with 11.

Trinity Valley OL Charleston Antwine - After speaking to a couple of people close to his recruitment, it sounds like Antwine has a decision to make as he has an offer from Troy to enroll there this summer. The physically gifted lineman also has an offer from Illinois that is for the 2014 class.

Blinn LB Ryan Flannigan - Flannigan is a rising star at Blinn and received his first offer yesterday when Arizona State came calling. As a hybrid linebacker/defensive end in the Bucs' defense, Flannigan was asked to both rush the quarterack and drop back into coverage. He's a multi-talented player with a lot of upside and the offer from the Sun Devils should prove to be the first of many to come in this spring and summer.

Antelope Valley OG Joseph Grant - Grant is starting to emerge is a player that could see some offers start to roll in sooner rather than later as schools like Kansas, Texas State and San Diego State have all been by AVC this past week to talk to him. Grant can play almost anywhere along the line, but he projects best inside at a guard spot.

Bakersfield DL Clinton Carter - After spending four years in the military including two in Afghanistan, playing defensive tackle on one of the top teams in the country last year was a piece of cake. Carter held up well playing inside for the Gades last fall, but will likely move outside to better use his size and length. He has yet to receive his first offer, but he's got schools like 45 tackles, 3.5 sacks, seven tackles-for-loss, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.

Butler S Carl Williams - Goes by the nickname "Hitman" and hopes to live up to that lofty moniker this fall with the Grizzlies. Last season, Williams was at Arizona Western and had planned to attend Iowa where he signed out of high school, but now is open to any school looking for a hard-hitting safety prospect.

Palomar TE Ryan Ena - Ena led the Comets with 43 receptions and tied for the team lead with six touchdown receptions while finishing second in receiving yards with 570 as a freshman and has an early offer from San Jose State and more could be on the way as schools get into the May evaluation period.
