Stefon Diggs, who signed with Maryland last week, won't be the last prospect from Olney (Md.) Good Counsel to garner national attention in recruiting.
Here's a rundown of some of the junior prospects from the powerhouse program who are beginning to become prime targets for college recruiters.
The ESPNU Watch List cornerback prospect has over 20 scholarship offers and is quickly becoming one of the top overall prospects in the East Region.
Clearly, guarding Diggs in practice has helped refine Fuller's skills.
Garner has close to 20 scholarship offers. He seems poised to be one of the top prospects in the mid-Atlantic area, if not the East region.
“Everything is going good,” the ESPNU Watch List cornerback prospect said. “Just talked to Auburn and South Carolina. Just found out that Penn State offered me so that's pretty big.”
Garner seems comfortable with Penn State despite the ongoing investigation into alleged child abuse and a coaching change, from the late Joe Paterno to Bill O'Brien.
“Penn State has always had a good program,” Garner said. “Recently they lost a big face of their program, Joe Paterno. That's a loss but their community is strong and they believe in their program.”
Garner said he believes there's a good chance he'll get a scholarship offer from several schools who have shown strong interest, namely Ohio State, Clemson, Michigan, Florida and Tennessee.
The safety prospect just picked up his first scholarship offer, from Virginia.
“I think it's a nice program,” Jones said. “I went up there for a football game and I'm going to go on a visit soon hopefully.”
Jones said he's also in contact with Georgia Tech and Rutgers. He said he plans to visit Georgia Tech and other schools this spring.
The receiver prospect picked up a scholarship offer from Mississippi State last week. He also has scholarship offers from Auburn and Virginia.
“I like them all a lot,” Levrone said of the Cavaliers. “UVA is kind of close to home. They're an up-and-coming program. Mississippi State and Auburn are both SEC schools.”
Immediate playing time will be a key consideration for Levrone.
“I'm looking for a school where I can play right away,” he said. “I feel as if I can make an impact right away. Also, after that I want to make sure I have a nice environment that I'm going to play at for the next four years.”
Levrone said he has been in close contact with Boston College, Arizona and Pittsburgh. He said he believes those schools are close to offering him a scholarship.
McGee's recruitment could explode in the coming weeks and months. The ESPNU Watch List linebacker has long held scholarship offers from Mississippi State, Purdue and North Carolina State. More interest is on the way.
“I'm hearing a lot from Purdue,” McGee said. “ I just started hearing from Wake Forest. I'm hearing from Georgia Tech.”
Purdue's interest could prove intriguing as the Boilermakers secured a signing from Good Counsel defensive end Ryan Watson in February.
“Purdue, I really don't know too much about it right now,” McGee said. “I heard it's a good school. It's in the Big Ten but I really don't know that much about it but I'm learning more...I talk to (Watson) about it every now and then. He said he likes it.”
McGee said he's also receiving interest from Colorado, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Virginia.
As for Mississippi State, it has a strong connection as well.
“I went to a camp (in Starkville) this summer,” McGee said. “I'm originally from Mississippi so I know a lot about Mississippi State right now. I like the SEC. That's what I like about them. They're a good program. The coaches were cool when I went up there.”
McGee said he may visit North Carolina State this spring. When asked if there's a school he'd like to get an offer from, McGee said Tennessee.
“I really like Tennessee,” McGee said. “It's SEC...Since I'm from around [the South], I know a lot about them. I'm familiar with it. I'm really interested in offers from anywhere.”
Ngachie said he's taking recruiting slow but has an offer from Virginia.
“I think they're a great school,” the athlete prospect said. “They're on the come up. They're a great football program and a great school.”
Ngachie said he's waiting on that second scholarship offer, which makes him appreciate the Cavs that much more.
“The fact they offered me first shows that they gave me an opportunity that some other schools didn't want to give me,” he said.
Ngachie said he's also been in contact with Colorado, Purdue, North Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Boston College and Maryland.
The ESPNU Watch List linebacker prospect was a good tailback prospect and he's become a great linebacker prospect.
O'Daniel switched positions last season and flourished. He has approximately 20 scholarship offers and has said he's fond of Virginia Tech.
