***UPDATE MARCH 8th, 2011: Delvon Simmons has reportedly asked to be released from his LOI (Letter of Intent) to the University of North Carolina Tar Heels. Not entirely sure as to why, but I’m sure it all may or may not come out eventually…***
***UPDATE March 10th, 2011: UNC is reportedly refusing to release Simmons from his LOI. This could get interesting…***
Simmons’ coach, Jim Ward, even chipped in with a great quote to make the matter that much more curious, and just hours before National Signing Day: “I can tell you that UNC has been added. We had a meeting behind closed doors, and that is all I can say. The rest stays there.”
that isn’t old enough to obtain a driver’s license in his home state. Seriously, Frumpsters. File this kid’s freak’s name away somewhere, and remember that you may or may not have first heard about him via your friends at Frumpzilla.
Foster is a Freshman at Troup County High School in LaGrange, Georgia. That’s right, a Freshman, and yet this is still probably one of the more impressive recruiting highlight reels you’re ever gonna see from a Linebacker. He’s not playing small time ball either. Class-AAA in Georgia is nothing to scoff at, and produces some big time talent on a regular basis.
Already weighing in at 6’2″, 205, it’s scary to think how Foster might develop over the next three years, and, barring something catastrophic, he’s all but sure to be one of the most prized recruits in the 2013 class. That said, consider this post Reuben’s official induction as the 3rd member of Frumpzilla’s High School Talent Freak Show Hall of Fame. He fits in nicely next to Nick Marshall (throwing the ball 70 yards in the air, in game, as a Sophomore) and Deuce Bello (in game, between the legs dunk).
You can track Reuben’s progress and the fight for his commitment at his Scout.com profile. He’s currently listing Alabama, Georgia, Auburn and Georgia Tech as his favorites, but there’s obviously a long way to go…
Would you trust this man to be a college football recruiter in your high school halls? The Croatan High School Cougars, of Carteret County, North Carolina, did, as well as others, and it’s kind of bit them, embarrassingly, in the ass.
For reasons that have yet to be made entirely clear, Kodey Alexander Kroger spent several weeks posing as a “student-recruiter” for the East Carolina Pirates’ football program. Having pulled the same stunt at other area schools earlier in the year, Kroger showed up at Croatan this month asking to talk to coaches about offering preferred walk-on status to two Cougar prospects. When asked for credentials he happily presented realistic looking documentation with ECU logos, letterhead and even coach Skip Holtz’s “signature.” Kroger also claimed to be a Freshman member of the Pirate football team, and said the Pirates had instituted the “student-recruiting” program to provide the coaching staff more time to focus on other, presumably higher priority, areas…
