Prospects are getting recruited earlier and earlier as the years go by, as a number of college coaches have started jotting down names for their recruiting classes down the road. Inside, a quick look at a number of sophomores whose names have been floating around the recruiting circuit early on.
Pictured: Ashley Ridge High School QB prospect, Matthew Duncan, threw for over 2000 yards as a sophomore last season.
This is not an “OFFICIAL LIST” of any sort. We’re just recognizing a few names that we’ve been hearing about early on in the game. We are “CERTAIN” that this list will change over time.
Ashley Ridge QB Matthew Duncan: Stepped on the scene as a freshman for Ashley Ridge High School in 2016, passing for over 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns. He surpassed those numbers on last season, completing 128 passes out of 223 attempts for 2097 yards, and threw 15 touchdown passes for the Swamp Foxes. He’s currently on the radar of several DI programs early on in the recruiting process, like Western Kentucky, South Carolina, Gardner Webb, The Citadel, Purdue, and many others.
Hilton Head CB Christian Miller: The 2020 defensive back prospect out of Hilton Head Island High School was penciled in at a starter for the Seahawks this past season. Last fall, the sophomore received credit for 41 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 9 pass break-ups. Miller’s name is also well known on the combine circuit, as the youngster attended/competed in a number of events last year, and is looking to do more of the same this offseason. Keep an ear out for this youngster, as he’s hungry for success.
Fort Dorchester QB Deandre Sabb: Served as a back-up to South Carolina Gamecock signee, QB Dakereon Joyner, the past two seasons, but made the most of his opportunities when he was given the nod. This youngster has a lot of potential, and plans to work extensively this off-season to take his game to another level this fall.
Hemingway DL Louie Lewis: A youngster on Hemingway’s roster that stood out to us, when we saw them back in the early fall of 2017. A disruptive force on the defensive side of the ball for the Tigers, with nothing but time on his side. This young man has a chance to grasp the attention of several college scouts, before his high school career comes to an end.
Woodland RB K’ron Ferrell: A young talented RB prospect, who doesn’t mind turning on the jets to take it to the house for a score. Ferrel also played in the secondary for the Wolverines this past season.
Woodland WR Lavel Davis: We’ve been hearing a lot about this kid, since his days as a 9th-grader two season ago. Checking in at 6-4, this young man has unlimited potential as a wideout prospect, and showed spurts of it on the football field this past season for the Wolverines.
Woodland DL Jaysharn Boyd: Another young defensive lineman out of Woodland High to keep an eye on. Boyd recently played in the 2017 NUC All-American Bowl Game in Daytona Florida.
Other Names to Listen Out For
Ashley Ridge DL Anthony Jackson: Big, strong defensive tackle prospect with lots of potential for the Swamp Foxes. Anxious to see how this young man progresses over the next two seasons.
Wando RB Jaden Singleton: Was the expected starter at the RB position for the Warriors last season, but went down with an injury early on in 2017. Singleton is without question, a ball carrier with a lot of potential. We are hoping to see this youngster come back bigger and stronger than ever before…
Wando OL/C Holston Slack: Checking in at 6-1, 275 pounds, Slack is another youngster out of Wando to keep an ear out for in the near future. Slack looked quite impressive on the offensive line for the Warriors last fall.
Fort Dorchester CB Jyheim Wilson: This speedy youngster will be one to keep an eye on, over the next couple of seasons for the Patriots.
James Island Charter QB Gunnar Nistad: The sophomore threw for over 1000 yards and 7 TDs for the Trojans in 2017.
Stratford WR Sincere Brown: A 6-4 wide receiver target for the Knights.
Bluffton WR Shamar Sangren: Athletic youngster that played on both sides of the ball for the Bobcats in 2017.
Fort Dorchester RB Kalil Jenkins: This young talented RB prospect has received interest from a couple of ACC programs early on: Clemson and Virginia Tech.
