One stop that is seeing a lot of activity toward the traditional National Signing Day is Everett High, as the Crimson Tide have plenty of college-level talent that is still uncommitted.
We spoke to Everett coach Theluxon Pierre Wednesday night to get an idea on which schools are looking at his players, and vice versa.
Here is what he told us.
— First, wide receiver/cornerback Mike Sainristil is off to Ann Arbor to start his career at the University of Michigan. Running back Isaac Seide also signed early to the University of New Hampshire.
Of Sainristil, Pierre had high praise for him.
"Remember back in Florida, the old Tim Tebow days? When you think of Percy Harvin, that's the type of player, because Percy Harvin doesn't really have a position. He's just good at everything that he does. That's what I think of Mikey, that type of player."
When asked of where Michigan wants to play Sainristil, Pierre said, "They told him he's going to play both. They'll figure that out once he gets up there. They want him at slot (receiver) and nickel (corner). We'll see what happens."
— Offensive and defensive lineman Wilson Frederic "hasn't made a decision yet," according to Pierre, but has a few Football Championship Subdivision offers. Those include Rhode Island, Bryant, Howard, and Sacred Heart, along with Merrimack and Assumption. Fellow senior lineman Gilbert Kabamba has URI, Bryant, Merrimack, and Central Connecticut on the table. For Jalen Iles-Smith, Fordham, URI, Sacred Heart, and Central Connecticut are on him, as well. Another senior lineman, Giovanni Raduazzo, has several Division 2 and Division 3 options.
— According to Pierre, Assumption, American International, and Merrimack are all high on senior cornerback Diamani Williams.
— Recently, Howard came in and offered a number of underclassmen: Wide receiver/defensive backs Eli Auguste, a junior, sophomores Tyrese Baptiste and Samy Lamothe, and junior defensive end Josaiah Stewart.
Not all of those players went both ways this past season, but Pierre said that's the goal for the skill players, and that Lamothe may get time at running back.
"Our defensive backs and receivers, we treat them all the same. If you can play receiver for us, you can play defensive back for us. That's how we look at it."
— Pierre reported that junior running back Jaden Mahabir does not have any offers yet, but teams are looking at him.
— Freshman quarterback/wide receiver/defensive back Ismael Zamor holds a Howard offer, but was also offered by Michigan last month.
"Well, coach (Jim) Harbaugh came in for Mikey, and Ish came into my office at the time, and I introduced him. (Michigan defensive coordinator Don) Brown had already known about the kid from coming in recruiting Mikey. When (Harbaugh) came in, he saw a kid that's 6-feet, 6-1 already and he's only 14 years old, and he's got straight-A's. When he looked at him, he saw that he plays quarterback, he plays receiver, and he's very good at both as a freshman. And he's like, 'You know what, this kid is special. You have an offer from Michigan.'"
As for which position fits Zamor best, Pierre said, "Like I said, my hope is he is just like Mikey, because he does it all. He does it all."
— Pierre said a lot of Division 2 and 3 schools are already looking at sophomore quarterback Duke Doherty, as well.
— As for linebacker Trey Sejour, Pierre noted that this was the junior's first year of full varsity action of being fully healthy, so he's chomping at the bit to get next season started already.
