USC's 5-Star DB Jalen Ramsey and More Recruits to Watch on ESPN Friday Night
USC commit Jalen Ramsey will be featured on national television this Friday in the Geico ESPN High School Showcase. The 5-star cornerback is just one of several recruits you'll want to tune in to see.
Ramsey's school, Brentwood Academy, will be facing Ensworth High School on ESPNU starting at 8.pm. EST in a matchup of two good schools from the state of Tennessee.
Ramsey is certainly the big name in this game, but he's not the only recruit worth watching.
Here are a few recruits you'll want to watch this Friday night.
5. D'Andre Ferby, 3-Star RB, Ensworth High School (2014)
Ferby is a 3-star running back, according to 247Sports.com, who has not yet received an offer. However, he's got plenty of time since he's still a junior.
He's considered the 33rd best RB in the class of 2014 by 247Sports.com. Therefore, if he can put together a big game against Brentwood on national television, I wouldn't be surprised if a few offers started to roll in.
He has interest in Vanderbilt, Miami, Nebraska, Ohio State, Mississippi State and Duke, according to 247Sports.com.
4. D'Montre Wade, 3-Star RB, Brentwood Academy
D'Montre Wade is another 3-star back that hasn't picked up any offers yet, but the Brentwood senior has to be feeling good about the chances of getting some interest if he plays well in this game.
Speaking of interests, his include Duke, Mississippi State, Notre Dame and Vanderbilt, according to 247Sports.com.
He's not the biggest recruiting name for Brentwood, but don't underestimate the buzz that can be created by putting up impressive numbers under the national spotlight.
Wade will be Brentwood's guy out of the backfield, so look for him to make some big plays.
3. Max Staver, 4-Star QB, Brentwood Academy
The Florida Gators and their fans will be intently watching Brentwood's 4-star signal-caller this Friday night.
ESPN Recruiting Nation has Max Staver ranked as a 4-star recruit. He committed to Florida back in June.
This game will be a big test to see whether or not he can handle all the cameras and expectations.
Fans of the Gators, and really any SEC team, will want to tune in to see how Florida's potential quarterback of the future will handle the pressure.
2. Cornelius Elder, 4-Star ATH, Ensworth High School
Cornelius Elder, a 4-star athlete, is one of the more intriguing recruits in this game.
This is not only due to his talent level, but because he has yet to make a commitment, and some pretty notable schools would like to bring him in.
According to 247Sports.com, Nebraska, Ohio State, Ole Miss, UCLA and Vanderbilt are at the top of his interest list. He has an upcoming visit to UCLA in November, too.
There are a lot of schools interested in Elder, which means there are going to be a lot of people tuning in to see what he can do for Ensworth on this big stage.
1. Jalen Ramsey, 5-Star CB, Brentwood Academy
The biggest recruiting name in this game both by ranking and potential is 5-star cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
Ramsey checks in at 6'0'' and 190 pounds—good size for a college corner—and runs a 4.54 40-yard dash, according to Rivals.com.
Rivals ranks Ramsey as the No. 3 corner in the nation, the No. 11 overall prospect and the No. 1 prospect in the state of Tennessee.
He's going to be the star of this game, and I expect he'll play up to the lofty expectations.
