Denmark doesn’t like to do a lot of interviews and seems to prefer to work in silence. We haven’t seen much of Oregon committed since the end of last season. Denmark haven’t done much 7v7s this spring (if at all), and are unlikely to attend any camps as we head into the summer.
Denmark aren’t a huge receiver and rely on their speed and running abilities to create separation, so checking to see if they’ve become a full receiver could have a significant effect on the standings.
There’s so much to love about the potential Heywood brings to the pitch, but it’s been hard to get a truly confident rating on him so far. He managed to dominate almost every defensive lineman he faced last season, and this year he’ll be up against lesser quality opponents, so it will be even harder to judge the progress he’s made.
Heywood seems to be a Penn State lean, but there are a number of other schools pushing for his commitment, including Wisconsin, Kentucky, Auburn And USCwho are ready to welcome him for official visits in June.
Pringle hasn’t been on the camp circuit this offseason, but we got to see him a lot last year. THE Caroline from the south commit has posted some great movies this fall, but it would be nice to check out his physical development. Last offseason, Pringle showed up at camps with impressive measurable results, but had he been more advanced physically, he could have been more effective.
There are a number of players who could push to be the Rivals250’s best offensive lineman, and Pringle is one of them thanks to his sky-high potential, and we’re looking forward to getting another in-person review. .
Stewart is the second highest ranked player in the region, but we saw very little of him outside of his games last season. He’s as talented as he gets in this class and has the size/speed profile to be an early contributor to the next level. It will be really interesting to see how he developed his game when we see him play again.
Caroline from the south, Georgia, ohio state, Oregon, miami and others have been chasing the Washington (DC) Friendship Collegiate Academy star. He has official visits planned to South Carolina, Georgia and Ohio State, and he just made an unofficial visit to Miami.
Thompson is another offensive tackle who could challenge for the top spot in the standings. The last time we saw the Caroline from the south commit, he was a very skinny prospect, but he had excellent measurables and a very long reach. His speed helps him excel as a pass protector and it would be really impressive to see him complete his game to be a more physically dominant prospect.
Thompson is part of an impressive offensive line for South Carolina this cycle, and he has a chance to be a cornerstone lineman for the Gamecocks for years to come.
