Recruiting Quick Hits: August 28

Recruiting Quick Hits: August 28

As preseason ball wraps up and the High School and College seasons kick into gear, we've got the scoop on two potential commitments and where their process stands.

James Sherman, K (Montgomery Catholic HS, AL)

Sherman checked in from Alabama yesterday with the Bobcat Illustrated staff. Sherman, a well spoken college kicking hopeful, has visited Vanderbilt and Texas A&M both this summer. The #1 ranked kicker out of his junior year has been on the uphill recovery from some summer sicknesses but had no problem out in Pensacola training with Mike McCabe.

After his visit to the Lone Star State, he seemed more interested in attending school in Texas. He's also being recruited by Virginia and Miami, but hasn't visited either yet. Waiting to narrow down his final choices until closer to the season end, he mentioned being recruited by Franchione and anticipating a visit to San Marcos. We'll have the latest from James as the season progresses.

Willie Wright, T (Cy Ridge HS, TX)

Wright has been looking forward to his team's season as well. The 6'3" 280 lb tackle told BI that Cy Ridge's running game should look better than last year, especially on his left side of the line. Receiving Honorable Mention at his position last year, Wright told us his summer camp at Texas Tech only helped his game. He visited a Dallas combine this summer as well earning himself the OL MVP award.

It's not surprising after watching his scouting videos. He was only been recruited by Tulane this summer after running a healthy 4.87 40 time. Willie told us what he's looking for in a school is the one that has the most to offer education-wise, and one that will help him see the most success in 4 years. He won't decide on a final school until the second half of the season, but this prospect sure looks like he's ready to lead his front line to playoff success, mentioning more unity on the team already.
