Wiregrass Ranch coach Jeremy Shobe was one of dozens to attend the annual college football recruiting fair last week at East Bay.
The reward for donating some of his time could be thousands upon thousands of dollars in scholarship money for his football players. The annual recruiting fair links colleges with limited budgets to high school football players they otherwise may never find.
The result for Wiregrass Ranch has been phone calls and interest from a handful of schools previously nowhere in sight.
Among the Bulls' top prospects: running back Josh Johnson has interest from several schools including Quincy (Ill.) University and Chowan (N.C.) University. Johnson, who also has tremendous ability as a baseball player, must choose his sport before making a commitment, Shobe said.
Bulls tackle Morgan Hendrix will visit Weber International next Saturday along with receiver Blake Burch.
Bulls defensive end Kasey Hess has been invited to walk on at Mount Union (Ohio) College, and also has interest from Chowan.
Bulls tackle Ryan Diaz could be drawn to Beloit (Wis.) College because of its pre-med program and its reputation for placing students with Johns Hopkins University.
Bulls linebacker Solomon Muhammad has interest from Quincy, Dean (Mass.) College and Saint Anselm (N.H.).
Bulls senior Asaad Nevel has interest from Mount Union, Quincy, Mars Hill (N.C.) College and Heidelberg (Ohio) College. Malik Moss and Yemi Adetutu have interest from the United State Merchant Marine Academy, Franklin (Ohio) University and Augsburg (Minn.) College, among others.
