The senior seasons of next year's Broncos are more than halfway through so each weekend till the end of their high school seasons, I'll be checking in on some of the Broncos' 2011 recruits to see how they're faring. After the jump, we'll drop in on a few of the Bronco verbals (non-binding till February, yadda-yadda).
There was good news and bad news for Frisco Liberty (TX) RB commit Jay Ajayi on Friday night. The good news was that his Redhawk squad stayed unbeaten as they dispatched Frisco Wakeland 38-3. The bad news was that Ajayi appeared to have re-injured his ankle and never returned to the field after halftime. Ajayi had 12 carries on the night for 85 yards, but failed to reach the endzone for the first time all year. On the season, Ajayi has 1,638 rushing yards and 28 TDs.
Rocklin High School (CA) QB commit Jimmy Laughrea had his best game of the year, but Granite Bay still slipped by the Thunder on Friday evening, 42-41. Laughrea was 29 of 44 on the night with 351 yards and 5 TDs and 1 interception. Laughrea has 2,166 yards on the year with 18 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Laughrea also has added 5 more scores on the ground for his 6-3 Rocklin team.
Though his stats are routinely updated a week late, I can tell you that Cosumnes Oaks (CA) D-line commit Robert Ash had 7 tackles last Friday against Liberty Ranch, bringing his season total (as of last week) to 65 tackles, 10 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and a blocked field goal.
CB commit Eric Agbaroji of Midlothian High School (TX) had 3 tackles in Friday night's win over Mansfield Timberview. Agbaroji has 26 tackles on the season as well as an INT, numerous PBUs and 2 blocked field goals.
Chaminade (CA) place-kicker commit Matt Goudis got off to a rocky start in Chaminade's Friday night matchup agasint Cathedral, missing a 35-yarder and 45-yarder early in the game. Goudis redeemed himself in the third-quarter, however, when he booted a 52-yarder to put his squad up 30-0. Goudis' team won the contest 30-6 and are now 8-0 on the year.
Recent local commit (Nickel) Corey Bell of Capital was in action on Friday for the undefeated Eagles and scored on rushed for 109 yards on just 10 carries as Capital extended their win streak with a 59-7 win over Boise High.
Recruits Taylor Loffler (Safety) and Dallas Burroughs (WR) sat out their games on Friday evening nursing injuries.
