PA High School Football: Five To Put On The Radar
Posted July 31, 2013 10:22 pm
John Graham – Prep Charter – Wide Receiver – Class of 2014
Graham has good speed and some of the best footwork I’ve seen during the “camp season”. He is a wide receiver, but I believe he has good enough footwork to play cornerback as well. Someone will take a shot on the very athletic Graham and will be happy that they did after they see how hard he works.
Takhi Turner – Susquehanna Township – Safety – Class of 2014
To be honest, a football camp is not where you’re really going to see Turner shine. Yes, he has coverage skills, but he’s also a very intimidating and hard-hitting safety as well. Temple has shown a lot of interest in Turner over the past few months. Turner is definitely one of the best safeties in the state of Pennsylvania. Turner also has the speed to keep up with receivers as well.
John Ford – Red Land – Running Back – Class of 2014
Ford is one of the fastest players in the state. Let that sink for a second. There’s no denying that on the football field, Ford produces. Ford has gone “camping” over the past few months, showcasing his all-around abilities. It may take a few games during the 2013 season for schools to start pulling the trigger, but eventually Ford will start landing offers. He’s getting a lot of interest from mostly 1-AA schools.
Jermaine Norris – Mastery Charter – Cornerback – Class of 2014
Norris has come on as of late in the recruiting scene but has yet to land an offer. It’s twice as hard for the smaller schools in the Philly Public League to get exposure, but Norris hopes to buck that trend and land a Division 1 offer.
Shannon Jackson – Fairview High School – Running Back – Class of 2014
Amazingly, this 6’2″, 225 pound running back has gone under the radar even though he ran for over 2,000 yards during the 2012 season. 2,000 yards in any classification is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. We’ll have to check back on him during the season to see if he keeps up the pace from 2012.
