Friedman’s Techways: Road Trips Across the Northeast

Director of National Ranking Adam Friedman Last week I spent the streets of New England, New Jersey and Pennsylvania looking at the college’s top prospects for going to school. Below he looks at the news of the region’s rising star and the latest major recruitment prospects:

Greenwich (Conn.) Had no bigger winners than the 6-foot-6, 281-pound Miles Walker at Brunswick School, Connecticut for a maximum exposure to college coaches, and a series of carefully scheduled school workouts in Massachusetts. . The huge offensive lineman worked in front of more than 10 Power Five coaches on Monday and on Wednesday he landed offers from Penn State, Iowa, Indiana and Texas A&M. The Northwest and the Duke are set to get him on an official visit next month.

Loomis Chaffee is loaded with main possibilities but none is literally and figuratively bigger than Olaus Allenen. The 6-foot-7, 300-pound rival 250 offensive linemen are preparing for a series of official tours of the states of Alabama, Miami, Georgia and Ohio next month, and aim to make commitments fairly soon after completing these inspections.

*****

The Boston (Mass.) Catholic Memorial is headed by the powerful underclassman Rank Guerby Lambert, who is highly sought after after a 6-foot-7, 280-pound offensive tackle. An offer sheet that is in double digits is the main target for Lambert Notre Dame, Penn State and Ohio State. They have communicated with him the most. Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Pittsburgh, South Carolina and Maryland are all in line to visit in the coming months.

*****

Samson Okunlola is an exceptional talent and seeing him twice in just a few days will be very helpful in the evaluation process. For his appointment, Okunola is close to announcing his official visit and narrowing down his list of options. He was just in Oregon this past weekend but has other trips to work. A recent offer from Alabama may shake things up a bit, but Okunola wants to end his appointment soon.

Chase Bissantis looked impressive at last week’s morning workout, as did his teammate Jordan Thomas. Bisontis, one of the highest-ranking offensive linemen in the 2023 class, cut most of the bad weight he carried last season and looked technically tough during position drills. He announced the top five in Texas A&M, Rutgers, Georgia, LSU and Michigan State on Saturday and plans his official visit to the state of Michigan on June 17.

*****

Thomas, a 2024 rival 250 defensive lineman, has grown enough and could end up as an internal defensive lineman before saying anything. Thomas landed a Texas A&M offer after the Aggies defensive line coach on Wednesday Eliza Robinson Saw his workout in the morning.

Defensive lineman CD Mitchell is one of the highest-ranked players in the 2023 class in New Jersey and the recruitment of Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic star is turning into a battle between Georgia and Texas A&M. He went on an official visit to Georgia this weekend but before that trip he gave his top two names to Dogs and Texas A&M. Official visits to Texas and Auburn are closed, and Texas A&M and Miami are likely to receive the remaining two. Mitchell says he will be committed to the start of this fall season.

*****

Malvern (Pa.) Offensive lineman Peter Jones of Malvern Prep is one of the highest ranked players in the 2024 class and for good reason. He checks all the boxes from a physical point of view and he has posted really impressive films from this past season. Penn State and Notre Dame are the main contenders at the moment but Michigan, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and a few other programs in the South could get him on campus for a visit this summer. Not surprisingly, Jones’s stock has been rising throughout the summer.

*****

Adon Schuller was an in-demand prospect but Irvington’s four-star, NJ, said he was locked in with Fighting Irish. Notre Dame’s future security is about 6-feet long and 190-pounds. He has a set of athletic skills that Notre Dame is looking for a defense but he also has the frame and style of play that allows him to create some drama in the box.

*****

Andrew Radaplaya looks like he’s working hard to improve his game. At 6-foot-4, 225-pounds, the Penn State Commit personally looks much more explosive than he did in the film this past season. Radapleia is now coming out of his cuts more abruptly and this has made him a better route runner. He got on the field for the last representative of his workout and caught with a really impressive one hand. Penn State fans should be happy that he’s locked in with the Nitani Lions.

Lawrenceville (NJ) Notre Dame quarterback AJ Suresh has offers from Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Boston College and Indiana but he will hit a number of college camps this summer to make sure teams across the country get to know him. Announces a promise. Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Michigan are some of the schools that have not yet offered Suras, but he will be camping at each of them this summer. His father, Bob SureshPrinceton has been head coach since the 2010 season.

*****

Jaylan Hornsby’s stock has skyrocketed over the past few weeks. The wide receiver and AAU basketball player have an offer sheet that is close to double digits with its recent offers coming from Pittsburgh, Maryland and Rutgers. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver is very new to the recruitment process so there’s still a lot to find for him before he can begin more school inspections. Keep an eye on Hornsby as the summer camp season begins as he sees many more offers.

*****

Vincent Drollett, a 2023 player outside of Choate Rosemary Hall, really improved his stock during “Show Day”. The tight edge of the 6-foot-6, 225-pound is more of a receiving threat but it seems to be a willing blocker. Drewlett needs to show some physical development before being counted as a regular contributor to the next level, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to take care of the strength and conditioning staff. Duke offered just a few days after his workout.
