Those guys are really good lineman but if they were smaller they would get overlooked no matter how good they were. We've all seen some excellent linemen play high school ball but most of them are undersized for the next level. Hopefully with the attention these guys are getting it will open the doors for athletes all over this area who would of been previously overlooked. I hope I didn't misspell anyone's name lol. Definitely looking forward to following these guys college careers. There are more kids than we realize that receive D1 offers... But it's hard for folks from this area to afford the expense that goes along with that. Full-rides are not all expense paid. So most of these offers are declined for various reasons but mostly for financial.Pol pot wrote:No, they are not going to Burg, why? Because Burg has a ton of nice High School players, however they have no one who is knocking the doors off of College Scouts, More DI scouts are calling on Sciotoville East than Burg at the moment.noreply66 wrote:Sounded like the topic is about kids in school now and not the past. Just do not hear about too many this year. Right off I only see one power house school in SEO and that looks to be Wheelersburg. Are scouts coming to Burg? Probably are. Right now, where are the boys to be found? So far we have six on the list. Most of the time you have a good year the year before and a lot of those boys coming back to have big time coaches to come into SEO. Too many times a boy can be looked at as a sophomore or JR. and come their senior year the team can be down and his performance will not be as good through the first half of the season and big time scouts seem to go elsewhere.
If you'd read my other post, I've stated that size and speed are what you have better have, the being a really good HS player at a really good program does not earn any DI offers. Being 6'5" and 280lb and able to run a 5.0 40 is what will get you offers.
