Rising senior Terrence Ricks has been a utility man for the Western Branch Bruins. This week, he’s picked up two more college scholarship offers, and like his high school coaches, the colleges offering don’t agree on where they want to put him.
Western Branch rising senior Daiquan Lawrence has gone from quiet playmaker to sought after prospect, almost overnight. He’s been a defensive back for the Bruins for two seasons, and he’s now looking at committing to an ACC school coming into his senior season.
The Western Branch Bruins are bringing in offers. There’s a “Big 4″ of talent that’s attracting the most attention, but beyond those players, other rising seniors are getting looks as well. All of this recruiting action points to a promising fall for the Bruins, since the stable seems to be loaded with talent.
($$) Western Branch recruits are getting noticed. Just a few weeks after a visit, Daiquan Lawrence has picked up his first major offer. He’s gotten strong interest from Virginia Tech and an offer from Hampton University. Now he has his first offer from an ACC school locked in, but don’t count Tech out yet.
($$) The Washington, D.C. NFTC (or Nike Football Training Camp) became yet another proving ground for the stars of The 757 on Sunday.

Western Branch linebacker William Thompson took his time figuring out his college destination. He could have signed with his teammates on National Signing Day, but he held out. Working out his commitment was a long process, but his patience paid off.
The Silverbacks football program hasn’t been mining The 757 for talent for long, but they’re already striking a chord with local coaches and recruits who are looking for an opportunity. Attached to Greenville Tech Community College in South Carolina, the Silverbacks are starting to pull players out of the area, and that’s a good thing according to Western Branch Assistant Coach Jarome Bell.
This is my favorite part of this entire information I’ve laid out to you because there are misconceptions that athletes have about what and verbal offer is and a committable offer. What a true commit is and what a verbal commit is. When does the recruiting process actually start and what can and cannot take place according to the NCAA. This is the truth or myth section. I understand that coaches talk. I talk to many of them every day and I know they have to be careful and very clear on what they say to students and to coaches. Let’s be clear, a verbal offer through a coach from a college or university coach when you are a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, is just that VERBAL
