Thursday was a big day for football prospects across the area.
Clay-Chalkville’s departing senior quarterback, Ty Pigrome, pulled down another Power 5 offer. Fresh off receiving a Maryland offer, the dual-threat signal caller added Rutgers to his list of possible landing spots. Pigrome also spent time talking with the University of South Florida on Thursday.
Fellow Class of 2016 Cougar, Cole Garrison, grabbed another scholarship offer. The offensive tackle was offered by the University of New Mexico, increasing his list of scholarship offers to 12. Garrison also spent time talking with Troy on Thursday.
Perhaps the most popular prospect at Hewitt-Trussville is 2017 athlete, Noah Igbinoghene. The junior is currently busy running track for the Huskies, but that wont stop college football coaches from running him down. Thursday saw him pocket offers from Memphis and UAB.
Those offers came a week after Yale and Wake Forest came calling for Igbinoghene.
UPDATE: Friday started with a bang at Clay-Chalkville. The Cougars’ top Class of 2017 prospect, Nico Collins, added a Virginia Tech offer. According to the program’s Twitter page, Virginia Tech was on campus at Clay-Chalkville High School when they pulled the friendly trigger on Collins, a 6-foot-4 wideout.
