We have offered CB Melvin Rouse of Charlotte Latin. Looks to be previously committed to Duke.

If Mr. Rouse is interested in Wofford, he probably could play on either side of the ball. Great hands and a nose for the ball.

Thanks to a little Littlegiants' birddogging, we have a commitment from CB Omari Johnson of Stratford High. 6'0" 170 4.37(!). While a lot of interest, we may have been his only offer. He committed back in September.

Thanks LG. Appears to have legitimate excellent speed, good size ... work in progress, especially on tackling. Could be a dandy especially due to the chance he will have to learn from the talented DB's we have been fortunate to recruit lately.

This looks like a combine where Omari Johnson participated as a 10th grader. And he was the fastest with a 40 time of 4.4. Maybe his 4.37 is legit. http://nucsports.com/columbia-results-u ... 0th-grade/

Bit of a homer request here but if anyone has a contact within the coaching staff please, please encourage them to look at Spartanburg High School linebacker Connor Shugart. He's only a junior. This kid is special. Probably undersized for a big D I school (I could be wrong). Good student (dad is a doctor). Absolute ball hawk. I watched SHS play Byrnes and he single handedly won the game for the Vikings. Not only was he the best defensive player for SHS that night but he was also their best offensive player (they won 14-0 with no offensive points). He had 14 solo tackles, a blocked punt (that was returned for a TD), an interception and made a devastating (de-cleated the kid) key block to clear the way for a pick six for his teammate. This summer he broke his hand (caught it between two helmets I believe) and played the first five games with a cast. Then, he separated his shoulder against a team from Georgia and the kid started the next week. He is one tough hombre and has absolute uncanny instinct for the football. Terriers have overlooked some Spa High players in the past. I sure hope they give this kid a look. Could be a Dan Tavani type player IMHO.

According to the 247 recruiting website, Wofford is one of several schools interested in him. According to a HUDL video, great instincts, quickness, and technique.

That's great to hear Lawdog. Thanks for the research. As Mike Young would say, "he's going to be a dandy". Hope we can steal him. He certainly has experience at Gibbs Stadium having started every game since his Sophomore year.

Wofford would seem to me to be a dream choice for kids who are marginal big time FBS prospect RB's. They WILL get the chance to run the ball and do their thing. We are regularly using 8-10 guys to run the ball, and they seem to get a chance to show their skills. Great contrast to the big programs that use only one guy.
