Big Visits Upcoming for DGB, Diggs

Dorial Green-Beckham will visit Texas on 11/19.

As their Senior seasons wind down, the recruiting trail gets even hotter for our prospects.  No. 1 recruit Dorial Green-Beckham is scheduled to visit the University of Texas on Nov. 19 when the current #21 team in the Nation takes on #17 Kansas State.  Texas is known for winning over potential recruits on visits.  One sticking point for DGB might be that another one of our follows, Johnathan Gray has committed some time ago and would be an awfully crazy 1-2 punch if the Longhorns can somehow get it done.  For those wondering if DGB will be taking in the Mizzou-Texas game at Columbia this weekend – he will be a little distracted as he and Hillcrest have a big playoff game against No. 1 Webb City at 1:30 PM.  The Tigers play the Longhorns starting at noon.

Another visit that will take place in a few weeks (leaving some time for a playoff run) is Stefon Diggs planning to take in Gainsville, Florida and the Gators.  That visit will take place Nov. 26th when the Gators play host to the heated rival Florida State – another candidate on Diggs’ shortlist.  We will keep an ear out for any rumblings following these visits.

Where They At This Weekend?

Let’s take a quick look at where our ten guys will be this weekend as many are winding down their games seasons and some are entrenched in their State Championship runs…

Dorial Green-Beckham is playing Saturday (11/12) at 1:30 PM against #1 seed Webb City (12-0) in the Class 4A quarterfinals.  Many think this will be the final game for the Nation’s top recruit.  However, as well all know DGB has the ability to take over a game himself.  That said, the Cardinals haven’t even been challenged this season.  DGB has 112 catches for 2,176 yards and 24 TD’s this season so far.

Mario Edwards and his Denton-Ryan squad puts their 10-0 record on the line tomorrow (Friday 11/11) at 7:00 PM vs. Amarillo Caprock (8-2) in the first round of the Texas 4A-Division I playoffs.  While they are expected to win, during the playoffs you NEVER know.

Michigan Back in it on Diggs

For a while it appeared that #2 WR Stefon Diggs was a fan of the Michigan Wolverines but it didn’t seem that it was going to be a fit.  Well, now that the latest on Diggs’ grades being good enough to qualify him – the Wolves are jumping in full force.  Diggs mentioned that he liked them and lists them in his top 5 along with Maryland, South Carolina, Florida and Miami.  We will keep an eye on this as it progresses.
