Woodland Hills Rich with Talent in 2014 and 2015
Posted February 12, 2014 9:23 pm
Woodland Hills is one of the top college pipelines in the WPIAL. With that being said, despite the team still having success on the field, the Wolverines haven’t had many national recruits the last few years. Look for all that to change. Preps.com takes a look at the talent down in Turtle Creek.
To start, the 2014 Woodland Hills class is good, not great. Led by senior running back Art Thompkins and DT Daniel Gibson, the Wolverines look to have some D1 talent just between those two. Add in UPREP transfer DB Stephon Hawthorne, and the Wolverines could have a trio of D1 recruits. Thompkins has an early offer from Toledo with a plethora of BCS school showing strong interest such as Pitt, UCONN, Michigan State, and Missouri. Gibson has been getting some looks from some MAC schools and others such as Temple and Pitt. Hawthorne is still under the radar, but look for that to change soon.
What makes the Wolverines so special is their class of 2015. With 3 potential blue chip prospects, it’s important for schools to tap this Woodland Hills pipeline early with Thompkins, Gibson, and Hawthorne. The 2015 class includes star running back Miles Sanders, OT Amon Youngblood, and QB Jeremiah Jones.
Sanders has been George Novak’s go-to horse since he was a freshman, with early offers from Michigan, Pitt, Temple, and Toledo with many other schools showing strong interest. Sanders looks to be a top 10 RB in the nation by time his senior year rolls around.
Youngblood is highly rated on preps.com and is a 2015 favorite. He has no offers as of now, but has all the tools a great offensive tackle needs.
Jeremiah Jones, younger brother to former Sto-Rox 5-star QB Paul Jones, is taking over the reigns this year full time as Woodland Hills’ signal caller. With strong interest from NC State, Indiana, Pitt, and some others; Jones can develop into one of the top Western PA signal callers.
