Recruiting Battle to Watch

For this week’s Recuiting Battle, we take a gander at a huge TE target out of Margaretta High School in Castalia, Oh. Mitch Raifsnider comes in at 6’8” and 240 lbs., and boasts four offers including ones from Akron and Eastern Michigan. As you can see on his Hudl film, he doesn’t have tremendous speed but he possesses good receiver skills, is a capable blocker, and shows flashes of explosiveness as a two-sport athlete. He could very well increase his speed in a college strength and conditioning program, but he’s equally likely to be a project OL with his frame. Either way, he’ll bring great value to any team in the MAC.

Fire Recruiting Graphic of the Week

If there was a Hall of Fame for recruiting graphics, Miami would’ve made its way there with this week’s Graphic of the Week. The image on the left would’ve been enough to secure this week with all of the way they incorporated the school in the graphic, but they added a clean graphic with the “Three Stripe Life” with Adidas. Such solid work all around. As always, feel free to submit nominees for Graphic of the Week to @MAC__Crootin.
