There’s been a rumor going around of late that Jeff Luc committed to Miami over the weekend. That is not true says the Jeff Luc camp. No commitments have been made and Luc continues to be wide open in the recruiting process and scheduled to take an unofficial visit to the University of Central Florida in the near future.
Springtown, Texas’ Clayton Cooper is receiving interest from Vanderbilt, OSU, Texas Tech, Missouri, Baylor, SMU and Texas A&M. The 6’1″ 180 lb. wide receiver is still awaiting his first offer but he’s receiving his strongest interest from Vanderbilt who he says is recruiting him pretty hard.
In a showdown of some of the top sprinters in Broward County, FL, Gridironstuds.com member DeMar Dorsey was upset by Deerfield Beach and Michigan bound senior Denard Robinson in the 100 meters. It took Robinson’s personal best to get it done as he blazed through the line at 10.44 seconds to take first in the event. Dorsey was second with a time of 10.60. Seven of the eight competitors in the event went under 11 seconds in the final.
Other Gridironstud members in the meet were St. Thomas Aquinas’ Cody Riggs who won the 300 meter hurdles with a Florida H.S. season best time of 37.28. Riggs is the defending state champ in the event. He also won the Long Jump with a mark of 23-05 and placed a close third in the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 14.53. Everglade H.S. and Kansas St. bound senior Courtney Thompson won the 100 meter hurdles with a time of 14.51.
Talk about fun to watch! You will be hard pressed to find sweeter feet than those that belong to Lucky Radley. The 5’10” junior from Agoura Hills High School in California makes one defender after another look really stupid on film. He’s a bar of soap, he’s shifty, he’s hard to catch and as rapper Lil Wayne says he’s mother%$# problem. The guy even has a Fan Club page on Facebook and he’s not the one who started it. What’s interesting is that Radley only has two scholarship offers (Arizona & San Diego St.) but he’s being recruited by teams as far away as the Florida Gators. Notre Dame, LSU, USC and UCLA all have shown interest so it’s only a matter of time before the offers come rolling in. For now, check out his video and get your popcorn ready: Lucky Radley Highlight video.

Holding true to his word that academics were going to play the biggest part in his college decision, Woodberry Forest School, VA linebacker Aramide Olaniyan committed to the Duke Blue Devils while attending their junior day event this past weekend.
Olaniyan’s speed and strength combined with his play making ability attracted some of the biggest football factories in the nation. Top historical football schools like Michigan, Auburn, Tennessee and UCLA all offered scholarships to the 6’2″ prep star but he shunned them all in favor of Duke because of academics.
