I watch every hudl hightlight on the new recruits. These two kids are good, but we will have to wait and see if they adjust to the college level. That goes for my son as well. 8-31-2018 can't come soon enuff to see what the Holt kid will do. :shock:

He might have meant transfer Danny Velasquez, a look-like who runs better.

6 Las Vegas football players you’ll be hearing more from

https://lasvegassun.com/news/2018/aug/1 ... ring-more/

Semaj Bolin, defensive back, Coronado

Bolin does a little bit of everything for the Cougars — he’s their go-to defensive back, wide receiver and kick returner. He’s committed to Portland State to play his position of choice, defensive back.
“I am a lockdown defender,” he said. “I can come up and make a tackle, but I’d rather have the quarterback make a dumb read and throw it to me so I can take it the other way.”
Bolin had three interceptions in 2017 and on offense caught 18 passes for two touchdowns. He also had about 300 kick return yards.
When he visited Portland State, he ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash. The school offered him a scholarship on the spot, he said.

Douglas County Prep Male Athlete of the Week: Zack Mandera, Roseburg

http://www.nrtoday.com/sports/preps/dou ... 04d0b.html

ZACK MANDERA
Roseburg senior
Sport: Football.

Positions: running back/linebacker.
Age: 17.
GPA: 3.3.
College Plans: Has committed to Portland State to play football.
Performance: Rushed 21 times for 179 yards and three touchdowns on offense in Roseburg's 42-14 victory over North Medford.


Other Interests/Hobbies: Baseball, outdoor pursuits, fishing, working out.
Favorite Athlete: Khalil Mack, linebacker for the Chicago Bears.
Quotable: "It was huge (beating North Medford). I think we worked hard all week and came out on Friday, came out there and had the mentality that we would punch them in the mouth — not like that, obviously — but that we would hit them hard, play hard. We knew they were going to try and come out and run the ball down us, so we just came out and played hard."

Our buddy Colter from Skyline Sports reporting that Chatman had offers from PSU and NAU out of high school, as well as "strong interest" from Montana State, before deciding on Rutgers last season.

Wow. Nice pickup. Sounds like it maybe wasn't a good fit with the offensive scheme at Rutgers.
