All the hard work players at the high school football level put in all goes toward generating eventual interest from a variance of colleges and universities. Putting enough on film to peak the interest and receive offers from schools to advance to the next level of their football journeys. For some areas of the country notoriety is easily attained, whereas for other less publicized regions like Anne Arundel County it is a little more up in the air during the recruiting process. Nonetheless, the Anne Arundel Region has seen several of its top teams produce and display several top players this season. These players have produced at a high level and now are getting the desired and earned interest from colleges and universities with offers. This article will look to highlight the different top players in the region and the different schools they have received offers from thus far.
Broadneck Wide Receiver Andre Woods Jr.:
- This speedster at the receiver position has been a big play machine during his tenure with Broadneck High School. At around 5’8” 160lbs. he is not the biggest target in the world, but these measurables in no way hinder his effectiveness on the field. I discovered during my postseason visit last year with Woods he already had interest from Towson and Kent State University. Woods has accumulated several offers since then after strong senior season. He currently has offers from West Liberty University, Fairmont State University, Frostburg State University, and Notre Dame College. Along with visits to West Virginia University and Old Dominion. Woods certainly has garnered much interest from schools the last two years. Whichever program he chooses will get an explosive and versatile offensive weapon to help make their team more dynamic on offense.
South River Quarterback David Foust:
- For South River Quarterback David Foust, he put together a strong Senior season to finish his South River career. Leading his team to a 9-0 regular season record, while throwing for 2130 passing yards, 29 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions. Foust big arm and terrific size make him a very intriguing quarterback prospect in the DVM area. Which is why he has received his first official Division I offer from the University of Maryland. It is a preferred walk-on offer which is a big deal for this talented young man. Foust has also attended visits to Cornell, Princeton, and Yale for football. Foust still has some small things to work on, but he has a strong foundation to build on to succeed as a QB at the next level.
Arundel Wide Receiver Shaun-Trent Okoye:
- Okoye with the departure of some of Arundel’s top receivers last year came into his senior year with a chance to shine. That is exactly what the young pass catcher did putting up several big performances including multiple 100+ yard 2 touchdown games. While being a great redzone target for his Quarterback Austin Slye all season. Now Okoye continues his recruiting process as his Wildcats continue in the Anne Arundel Region postseason. He does currently have one official offer from Judson University. While also compiling visits to programs including Monmouth, Seton Hall, Wake Forest, and Morgan State. Shaun-Trent Okoye is another receiver in the region with great size and strength. While having the solid technical skills as a route runner and blocker making him an asset in a variety of ways as a receiver. Okoye as his postseason continues Okoye after their run ends at a point will then turn to finding the college or university, he would like to play football for. Bringing his talents as a playmaker on the outside to the next level.
South River Wide Receiver Sean Leonard:
- Sean Leonard has been a very consistent performer on the outside for South River’s offense. Having had another strong season where he was one of the top scorers in the region, he received his first official D-I offer. This came from the same university his QB David Foust got his in the University of Maryland. Leonard has good size at receiver, while also displaying versatility to play corner on defense for South River as well. It like Foust was a PWO or preferred walk-on offer from the program. Now as the Arundel County season winds down, the interest in this young receiver should continue to rise. As his film will show a player who can thrive as a great all-around receiver at the college level.
