Names in the News
–5-star 2024 QB D.J. Lagway, Willis High School, Willis, Texas.
D.J. Lagway will be back at Kyle Field this weekend to watch the Texas A&M Aggies host the Ole Miss Rebels. He was previously there in September when the Aggies hosted the Miami Hurricanes. Not only is Lagway high on the Aggie's list of targets, but so are the Clemson Tigers and Florida Gators. He was at Death Valley last weekend to watch the Tigers against the Syracuse Orange, and he has also been to The Swamp twice this season to watch the Gators.
In addition, the USC Trojans are another school linked to him, and he is supposed to be at The Coliseum in November to see them. But getting back to this weekend, the Aggies can make a big impression on him with a great showing. Head coach Jimbo Fisher and offensive coordinator Darryl Dickey have played a significant part in recruitment. So despite all the issues in College Station, if the Aggies play well, that could go a long way in getting Lagway. To me, they are the favorites to land his services right now.
–4- star WR DeAndre Moore, St. John Bosco High School, Bellflower, California.
DeAndre Moore, at one time, was committed to the Oklahoma Sooners. However, he withdrew that commitment in January, and after visiting the Louisville Cardinals, he committed to them in May. However, we all know that teams still need to continue recruiting their prospects even after they commit.
That being the case, Moore is planning visits with the defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs and the Texas Longhorns. First, he will be in Athens on November 5 for the Bulldogs showdown with the Tennesse Volunteers. Then, the following weekend he will be in Austin when the Longhorns host the TCU Horned Frogs. Even though he is committed to the cardinals, the Bulldogs and Longhorns should feel great about their upcoming visits. Regarding the Longhorns, Moore said,
"Texas was probably my runner-up when I committed to Louisville."
Therefore, Texas may still have a chance to flip him if they play well from here on out and especially against the Horned Frogs.
–4- star LB Arion Carter, Smyrna High School, Smyrna, Tennessee.
Arion Carter became a four-star recruit recently and has been committed to the Memphis Tigers since July. Yet despite that, he has visits set up with the Tennessee Volunteers, Ohio State Buckeyes, Michigan Wolverines, and Alabama Crimson Tide:
Carter was originally scheduled to be in Knoxville this weekend but is no longer going. He is scheduled to go to Columbus on November 12 to watch the Buckeyes host the Indiana Hoosiers. Finally, Carter will go to the Big House on November 19 to see the Wolverines and the Illinois Fighting Illini. Then on November 26, he will be in Tuscaloosa to see the Crimson Tide host the Auburn Tigers.
Unfortunately, these visits are not good news for Memphis, even though he is still committed to them. To me, the Crimson Tide are the favorites, as he has visited them twice before, and he will be there for the Iron Bowl, which we all know is one of the greatest rivalry games in all sports.
–4- star DB Antione Jackson, Dillard High School, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Antione Jackson is committed to the Miami Hurricanes and has reclassified, which means he will now be a part of the 2023 recruiting class. He is the second cornerback to reclassify in the 2023 class, joining five-star Desmond Ricks. Jackson is the No. 19 cornerback in the class and No. 23 in the state of Florida. The Hurricanes already had a strong class with him, but with the news last night that five-star cornerback Cormani McClane chose the Hurricanes, their class is now ranked eighth nationally.
–4-star DE David Peevy, Lincoln High School, San Diego, California.
David Peevy, who became a four-star recruit last week, announced that he was committing to the USC Trojans over the Oregon Ducks and Washington Huskies. He said,
"It was a lot of things with USC."
This includes the coaching staff and how they treated him, which stood out to him. With him heading to Southern California, they now have 20 commitments in their 2023 class which is currently 13th in the nation and second in the Pac-12 behind the Ducks.
