Recruiting Battle to Watch
We’re going to the defensive side of the ball as an OLB from DC is garnering some buzz among MAC schools. Trey Jamison, a 6’1”, 205 lbs. product out of Gonzaga College High School, currently has ten offers, including ones from Kent State, Ohio, and WMU. As you can see in his Hudl film, Jamison is a tackling machine that has good vision and quickness. We’ll have to wait and see him develop in pass coverage and get stronger in order to shed blocks at the next level, but he certainly has the physical tools to be successful in college.
Fire Recruiting Graphic of the Week
This week’s Graphic of the Week comes to us from the Flashes of Kent State ahead of National Signing Day. Everything about this graphic is great: the action shot the team used, the different fonts and effects, as well as the signature on the piece of tape. Everything works really well. As always, feel free to submit nominees for Graphic of the Week to @MAC__Crootin.
