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.
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.
