Tuesday was quite an intriguing day for a couple of Lowcountry standouts in the recruiting aspects of things. One local star added two additional offers to his list, while another received his very first offer. Inside, we have the details.
Two in-state programs jumped on board with scholarship offers for Cane Bay star, Kris Copeland, yesterday.
Since receiving his fist offer from Limestone College back in the Spring, Kris Copeland, remained patient as he knew the day was coming, when more offers would trickle in. Well, on yesterday the gifted play-maker added two additional offers to his list. “Blessed to receive my 2nd and 3rd offer from Newberry and The Citadel,” Copeland tweeted on yesterday afternoon.
As a senior, Copeland ran for 1487 yards on the ground and scored 19 touchdowns for the Cobras this season. The speedy athlete was also a threat to take it the distance on special teams fielding kicks/punts during the 2017 season. For the sake of numbers, Copeland accumulated over 800 yards in returns, while taking four (3 KO / 1 PR) of them back to the house.
It’s been a long time coming for Colleton County High School 2018 quarterback prospect, Craig Grant, as the 6-4, 230-pound QB picked up his first scholarship offer from Savannah State University on yesterday. It would not surprise us to see many others jump on board with offers for the big Lowcountry QB. During his senior season campaign for the Cougars, Grant threw for 3354 yards and 31 TD strikes through the air. He also ran for 758 yards and 13 scores on the ground.
Had a chance to get an up-close look at Berkeley 2019 DB standout, Tre’ Morrison. To call this young man a playmaker on the defensive side of the ball would be an understatement. Whether he’s intercepting a pass, blocking a punt, recovering a fumble, or making a tackle 20 yards down the field, he always finds his way to the football. This young man is without question, a general on the defensive side of the ball for the Stags. We expect for things to get really interesting with his recruitment before long. To be frank, we expect for a number of prospects out of Berkeley’s 2019 class to make some noise on the recruiting scene before long. For the sake of names: RB Keshawn Wicks, WR DJ Chisolm, OL Kamren McCray, WR Dervon Pesnell, and QB Eric Tuttle to name a few. Stay tuned for more news on this intriguing crop of talent out of Moncks Corner, SC.
As of late, we’ve been hearing a lot about Timberland 6-1 cornerback prospect, Tyler Sumter, as the local talent came up big for the Wolves this season. In only his first season on the football field, the junior CB came down with 9 interceptions on the defensive side of the ball for Timberland. Not bad for a first-year guy, to say the least… Keep an ear out for this 2019 star out of St. Stephens, SC.
Another youngster to keep an ear out for is Timberland 2021 DL star, Jamaal McKinney. Entering into last week’s play-off game, McKinney had a total of 24 TFL on the season. More on this young man in the near future!
