Football: Class of 2012 right around the corner...
By Robert Przybylo
Keeping track of the 2011 football recruits is hard enough but trying to keep tabs for 2012 is darn near impossible at this point.
Obviously there are some names that you’re going to be hearing a lot about for the next two years. Names like Barry Sanders of Heritage Hall and James Flanders of Midwest City and Conner Sherwood of Cascia Hall are going to become even more of household names.
However, I couldn’t include everyone in Monday’s piece. So here are just a few more names to keep an eye out for:
Cayman Bundage, OL, Douglass: Coach Willis Alexander said Bundage is already receiving heavy interest from top schools such as Florida State. Looking forward to seeing the Trojans later this week at the Santa Fe passing league event.
Ashton Henderson, DT, Jenks: Someone whose name I’ve heard a lot in the last month or so. He’s massive at 6-2 and 321 pounds, but I’ve been told his footwork is phenomenal.
Devin Dobbins, OL, Millwood: Yea, the cupboard isn’t bare just because this year’s crop of Falcons will be leaving the nest. Assistant coach Kevin Cox has been high on Dobbins and his 6-2 and 292-pound frame should have Millwood followers excited.
Jeremy Cunningham, DL, Dibble: A bond with Gerald McCoy has certainly helped his game. He’s a little raw right now, but coach Charley North said if Cunningham can apply himself consistently, there is no doubt he can play at the next level.
Blake Belcher, OL, Guthrie: With the spotlight squarely on Kentrell Brothers, recruits like Belcher will get a lot more looks. I don’t know if there’s any truth to it, but I’ve always believed it one or two good recruits will lead to more opportunities for other teammates.
I seriously could go on and on and on, but let me throw it out to you guys. Who have I missed? Who is going in under the radar right now? Sound off.
