Im BAAAAAAACCCK! It’s time to dust off the recruiting chops and get this shindig started! I actually should have started last week, so apologies. I’ll try and post a weekly Recruiting Roundup every Sunday, though sometimes the players have late games on Saturdays that I might miss. I’ll try my best to make sure all the info is there.
So far, the 2018 class has 9 commits. That seems like a solid number to me, and we’ve checked off some big ones: QB and RB. We also may have tapped out on LBs, but I guess we’ll have to see how the season shakes out.
Without further ado, let’s get this kicked off!
Andrew VanBuren, RB, Caminade HS (West Hills, CA)
Andrew’s Eagle squad brought the pain against Oaks Christian this week winning 47-10. Andrew had 18 carries for 140 yards and 3 TDs. He also had a 62 yard reception for a TD as well.
Chaminade and Andrew take on Mountain Pointe next Thursday at 8pm
Scale Igiehon, DT, Del Valle HS (Del Valle, TX)
Del Valle has not yet started their season. They begin their season September 1st at 730pm against Rudder.
Kukea Emmsley, DE, Kapolei HS (Kapolei, HI)
I am presuming here that Kukea will play at DE, but I have no idea. He’s currently a LB at Kapolei.
Kapolei is 2-1 on the season so far after wins against Campbell (23-7) on 8/4, Wai’anae (7-0) on 8/12 and a loss by forfeit this last weekend against Castle, though the score was 41-7. There are plenty of offensive stats for Kapolei, but I’m not seeing anything defensively. I’ll update if I’m able to locate anything.
Highlights from Campbell
Highlights from Wai’anae
Highlights from Castle
Kapolei actually plays Farrington tonight, but it is at 630pm Hawaii time. I’ll try and get an update in in the morning.
Kapolei takes on Leilehua on 9/2 at 630pm.
Brandon Hawkins, LB, Georgetown HS (Georgetown, TX)
Georgetown has not yet kicked off their season yet. Their first game is September 1st at 730pm against Brewer
Zidane Thomas, RB, Centennial HS (Peoria, AZ)
Zidane’s Coyotes are 2-0 on the year after wins against Desert Edge (49-0) on 8/18 and Apollo (41-0) on 8/25. AZCentral doesn’t have stats for Zidane, so if you happen to see them let me know. Based on his highlights though, he has a lot of yards and all of the touchdowns.
Highlights from Desert Edge
Highlights from Apollo
Centennial takes on Maricopa at 7pm on 9/8.
DJ Schramm, LB, Clovis West HS (Fresno, CA)
DJ’s Golden Eagles lost a close one in their opener to Liberty 31-30. Stats aren’t available for the game, but I’ll fill in if I am able to find them.
Clovis West takes on Centennial on Friday, September 1st at 730pm
Philip Mills, LB, Paloma Valley HS (Menifee, CA)
Phillip’s Wildcats lost their opener to Cajon 44-34. No stats were available for PV, though they were available for Cajon. Hopefully this isn’t a replay of last season where all of the opponents had stats, but none of the BSU commits.
Paloma Valley takes on Valley View next Friday at 7pm.
Zachary Wilson, QB, Corner Canyon HS (Draper, UT)
Zach Wilson and Corner Canyon are off to a hot start this year. They are 2-0 on the season after wins at Pleasant Grove (31-10) and vs Riverton (48-7).
Zach was 21-39 for 311 yards and rushed 17 times for 146 yards and 3 TDs against Pleasant Grove. He was 21-34 for 430 yards and 5 TDs with 2 INT and 8 carries for 33 yards against Riverton.
Highlights from Pleasant Grove
Corner Canyon takes on Westlake next Friday at 7pm.
Keeghan Freeborn, OG, Rocky Mountain HS (Meridian, ID)
Rocky Mountain blanked Spanish Springs (Sparks, NV) today 43-0. Stats aren’t kept for offensive lineman.
Rocky Mountain takes on Capital next Friday at 7pm.
That’s all I’ve got for the first article. I’ll continue to try and find better sources for info so I can actually get stats for these guys. If you all have good info, let me know! Go Broncos!
