2018 Football Recruiting Thread

[quote=“49er1, post:20, topic:30832”]Just saw a Gaston Gazette FB post about North Gaston HS football and the pic showed some big player in a NINER shirt. Anyone know who he is and if he’s a recruit?

The caption says Michael Watson and he looks to be a RG for the team. This is all I could find on him, so hopefully someone else may know more than me on the recruiting end…

Here is one of my players who I have heard Charlotte may be interested in. I know there was a coach at a scrimmage we did who did talk to him.
Milan Howard 5’11" 180 pound RB Several offers from higher tier FCS teams as of now.
Here are his junior highlights: http://www.hudl.com/video/3/6646867/57e6c2be11fa7f80744f8215

Since this is UAB week. How many transfer players do we have coming in next season? If we ever want to be half decent in football we need transfers along with Jucos and traditional four year recruits.

I imagine our new staff will bring in many transfers and jucos to replace the many that we will inevitably lose to Jucos and transfer.

[quote=“NinerAlum18, post:10, topic:30832”]Lots of recruits at Day 1 of Spring Ball
They did offer an OL from Ravenscroft it looks like Calvin Atkeson
Jeremiah Gray from Charlotte Christian was there as well, coached against him last year kid can play
Myles Berry from Dudley was also there, certainly a player we’d want. Good kid too
Nigel Fitzgerald who is a stud from Dudley was also offered by Charlotte as well[/quote]
Fitzgerald picks ODU over Charlotte and NC A&T.

This class is bad. We not lose a thing if we lose Lambert.

I do think the QB from south Iredell is pretty good

Why is our recruiting ranked so poorly? Is it that our coaches cannot recruit? Are we allocating less money for recruiting? Does the small stadium size hurt us? Something needs to change.

Losing guys like Curry, Sykes, and Ratliff has really hurt our recruiting.

Losing Robert Washington our only 4 star recruit ever a few games into the season is very telling about this staff.

We are selling a 1 win product backed by an AD that is ok with a 1 win product. Competitive kids want no part of this dumpster fire.

Something needs to change.[/quote]all of those things hurt us except maybe the recruiting budget. I don’t know how we stack up against others, but if budget is a concern, we probably wouldn’t be ignoring the local schools.

Lambert comes across pretty bland and boring so I don’t see him being exciting to high school players.
