Recruits Who Went Off
No. 61 overall in Class of 2020 and No. 5 rated pro style quarterback
The future Buckeye threw for 453 yards and three touchdowns in Chaparral's 36-33 overtime win over Hamilton (Chandler, Ariz.). His third and final touchdown came in OT to seal the victory. Ohio State has a very special player headed its way in two years. Gary Bryant Jr., Centennial (Corona, Calif.) — Uncommitted No. 103 overall in Class of 2020 and No. 11 rated athlete
I'm not sure if any player is going to skyrocket this year as much as Bryant Jr. He's one of the most explosive playmakers in high school football and he showed that against one of the top teams in the country this past weekend. He led the Inland Empire power to a 35-13 win over the back-to-back Arizona 6A state champs — Chandler (Ariz.). He hauled in nine receptions for 264 yards and all three of his touchdowns came from 50-plus yards. Spencer Rattler, Pinnacle (Phoenix) — 2019 Oklahoma commitNo. 22 overall in Class of 2019 and No. 1 rated quarterback
Expect to see the future Sooner on this list a lot this year. He is one of the best playmaking quarterbacks in the country. The 5-star gunslinger put on a show against Perry (Ariz.), throwing for 338 yards and added another 58 yards on the ground to go with five total touchdowns in Pinnacle's 59-33 win.
Eric Gray, Lausanne Collegiate (Memphis, Tenn.) — 2019 Michigan commit
No. 217 overall in Class of 2019 and No. 3 all purpose back
The 2019 Michigan commit started 2018 just how he finished 2017. He led the Lynx to a 47-14 season opening win over Rosa Fort (Tunica, Miss.), rushing for 248 yards and three scores. It was the ninth consecutive game of at least 200 yards for the future Wolverine. Jake Smith, Notre Dame Prep (Scottsdale, Ariz.) — 2019 Texas commitNo. 87 overall in Class of 2019 and No. 17 wide receiver
The 4-star wide receiver from Arizona had a better half than most people do games. He finished with 194 total yards and five scores in the first 24 minutes. The future Longhorn ended the night 142 yards receiving and 82 yards rushing and five touchdowns in Notre Dame Prep's 41-32 win over Fairfax (Laveen, Ariz.). Jamious Griffin, Rome (Ga.) — 2019 North Carolina State commit
No. 560 overall in Class of 2019 and No. 35 running back
The 3-star running back looked like a 5-star in Rome's 51-41 win over Marietta (Ga.). He ended the night with 28 carries for 162 yards and four scores. It was the 28th consecutive win for the back-to-back Georgia 5A state champs and the Wolves were one of four new teams to join this week's Xcellent 25 rankings presented by the Army National Guard
. Harrison Bailey, Marietta (Ga.) — UncommittedNo. 54 overall in Class of 2020 and No. 4 pro style quarterback
Despite falling short against Rome in the Corky Kell Classic, Marietta's Bailey showed why he is one of the top quarterbacks in the country. He threw for 443 yards and six touchdowns in the Blue Devils' 51-41 loss. Ramel Keyton
, a 2019 Tennessee commit, also had a monster game hauling in a career-high 14 receptions for 191 yards and four scores.
Zach Charbonnet, Oaks Christian (Westlake Village, Calif.) — 2019 Michigan commit
No. 169 overall in Class of 2019 and No. 9 running back
Charbonnet is the second running back committed to Michigan to crack the list this week. He led Oaks Christian to a 31-13 win over a very good Chaminade (West Hills, Calif.) team. The 4-star running back rushed for 192 yards and three scores — 165 coming in the second half — to help the defending CIF Southern Section Division-II champs pull away late. Henry To'oto'o, De La Salle (Concord, Calif.) — UncommittedNo. 39 overall in Class of 2019 and No. 2 outside linebacker
A lot of people thought this would be the year that a Northern California team could beat De La Salle. Instead, the Spartans handed Folsom its first shutout loss since 2004 with a 14-0 win. To'oto'o led the way with 10 tackles and recovered two fumbles in one of the biggest games of the weekend. The Spartans moved up a few spots in this week's Top 25 from 18 to 15. Sean Dollars, Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) — 2019 Oregon commitNo. 171 overall in Class of 2019 and No. 1 all purpose back
The future Oregon Duck was impressive in his Mater Dei debut. He scored three touchdowns and rushed for 120 yards in their 42-14 win over Bishop Amat (La Puente, Calif.). A fourth score — a 90-yard touchdown run — got called back from a questionable holding call. Dollar and Shakobe Harper
showed why they're one of the best running back duos in the country, combining for 280 yards rushing and four scores.
