A few notes:

-Jaedon Henry goes to St. Thomas Aquinas, which is where Daniel Carter went. Seems to me that they probably saw enough from him to want to offer while they were recruiting Carter.

-Travis Dixon’s highlight tape looks mighty impressive. Patiently waits for the holes, quick cuts to hit openings, ability to shed tacklers. I won’t be surprised if he winds up with an impressive offer sheet.

-Pledger goes to the same high school that Amir Watts graduated from, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that is important to their recruitment of Pledger.
