Here are five new guys on rosters that I expect to make an impact this season:
Corbett Glick, Quarterback, Hammond: A transfer from Heathwood, this 6-foot-1, 180-pound rising junior has a chance at being one of the top signal callers in SCISA for the 2018 class.
Jaquain Hills, Wide Receiver, Richland Northeast: At 6-2 3/4 , 185, this rising junior is going to be a key in the Cavaliers’ offense this year, giving them speed on the outside and the ability to stretch the field and go vertical.
Sean Miller, Defensive End, Airport: At 6-2, 285, Miller will be a force on the defensive front for the Eagles. He’s strong enough to damage the running game and athletic enough to get off the edge and to the quarterback.
Never miss a local story.
Bryce Thompson, Running Back, Ben Lippen: Not a totally newbie, but sat out his sophomore season in 2015 after having flashes of greatness as a freshman sensation at Dutch Fork. The 6-0, 185-pound back could be the best in the state at his position by season’s end.
Kyle Wright, Running Back, Blythewood: OK, so not a complete “newbie,” but was virtually in a secondary back role last year. Wright might be the best returning back in the Midlands, but will have an inexperienced offensive line in front of him.
