Part Two of the Recruiting Notes from the Road To The Crown Houston, will feature more prospects on the verge of seeing their stock rise on the recruiting trail. Here are several more players who got our attention in The Woodlands.
Rodney Bimage Jr | Defensive Back | Class of 2024 | Dickinson High School
Bimage is a physical player that loves contact at the line of scrimmage and he uses his extended length well at the point of attack. He’s a disruptive prospect with a huge upside and watching him perform during this two-day event, we can see that he is to sharpening his skill set. Over the weekend, he ran well with receivers in coverage, he ensured his presence was felt on passes he defended and he left no doubt that he is one the top defensive back prospects in his class. Bimage has nearly 20 offers at his point, most of which come from power five programs, including Texas, Florida State, and Georgia.
Jonah Williams | Athlete | Class of 2025 | Galveston Ball High School
Jonah Williams has the goods that colleges around the country are searching for and they are beginning to migrate to South Texas to get eyes on him. Williams stands six foot-three, with enough athleticism to contribute on both sides of the football. Williams primarily lines up at safety, but his long, lean frame could allow Jonah to blossom into a speedy linebacker at the next level. After a stellar sophomore season, Williams has put himself in position to be one of the premier defenders in the Class of 2025.
Cameron Renfro | Quarterback | Class of 2026 | Iowa Colony High School
Renfro had himself a great weekend, he showed excellent poise and he was sharp with his throws. He plays with a calm demeanor and he responded well to adversity. Cameron consistently completed passes in the short to intermediate areas with ease and he has the arm strength to push the football down field to his wide receivers. Renfro got a wealth of experience in 2022 at Iowa Colony as a starting quarterback and after watching him carve up defenses over the weekend, his ceiling is very high and as he continues to mature look for Renfro to advance his game.
Patrick Bridges | Wide Receiver | Class of 2024| Pearland High School
Bridges is an explosive athlete, who has the skill set to take the top off a defense and make the big splash plays. Bridges excels with the football in his hands, his ability to run and accelerate after the catch is next level and this lead to him making some dynamic plays that help lead his STE Boyz squad to a runner up appearance in the championship game on Sunday. With a breakout senior season, he should hear from more suitors outside the current University of Louisiana Monroe offer.
Chris Gant Jr | Defensive Back | Class of 2024 | Klein Collins High School
Gant is a playmaking safety, he has the range to cover ground in a hurry and he has the versatility to come down in the tackle box and cover in the slot/nickel position. Chris plays with violent hands in press coverage, he transitions into his backpedal smoothly and he has excellent ball skills. Kentucky, Alabama State and Texas Southern have come to the table with offers, but expect more schools to offer as the fall season approaches.
Deyjohn Pettaway | Defensive Back | Class of 2025 | Katy Paetow High School
Pettaway is an explosive, twitchy athlete, who ran a blistering 4.3 forty yard dash at the All-American Combine in San Antonio and he showed off his aggressive coverage skills over the weekend in Houston. His ability to get hands on receivers early and run with them staying engaged at the hip was impressive. Pettaway has oily hips and his skill to turn, run and cut are what leads him to be in position to make plays on the football. Pettaway has the tools to develop into one of the top defenders in the Class of 2025. Miami(Fla), Tulsa, and UNLV have offered in the month of February, but look for his mailbox to remain full with more schools coming to the table as he continues to trend up on he recruiting trail.
