C/PF Fred Iruafemi has an Offer from VMI

Footlocker.comApex, North Carolina big man Fred Iruafemi has picked up an offer from the VMI Keydets. The 6-7 205 Iruafemi is a class of 2014 prospect who would enter school this fall. Fred is also garnering interest from Elon, UNC-Pembroke, and Mount Olive. He is looking for a school with “a family feel, winning tradition, (and) an education that will translate into a successful future.” While the Keydets sound like a nice fit, he will take his time in making a decision and has no specific timetable for when he will sign.

It is always difficult to discern whether a player’s high school production is a result of superior ability or mediocre competition. Iruafemi is generally quicker and more athletic than his opponents, but what sets him apart is his hustle and tenacity. He works for position and is active going after rebounds and blocks. Fred is a solid post player with the athleticism to run the floor in VMI’s high octane system. There is certainly still time for someone else to scoop him up, but Iruafemi looks like a great fit for the Keydets as they return to the Southern Conference.

Sage Attwood Wofford

Wofford Offers Florida QB Sage Attwood

Cape Coral, Florida quarterback Sage Attwood has numerous offers including Wofford. At 6-0 190, with 4.57 speed Attwood is ideal for the Terrier’s option attack. Sage racked up nearly 3,000 yards total offense and 27 touchdowns as a junior leading his team to a 9-2 record in 2013.

Attwood is a perfect fit for the Terriers. (highlights) Not only does he possess the athleticism to run the option, but he has a strong arm with good accuracy. His ability to stretch the field is a desperate need for Wofford as it would spread the defense and open up room for the rushing attack. Although, the Terriers have a lot of competition for Sage including Navy and Wake Forest, his skill set would be a major asset if Coach Ayers could entice him to spend the next 4 years in Spartanburg.

TE Collin Reed with Offers from Wofford and Furman

Boiling Springs HS tight end Collin Reed has early offers from SoCon rivals Furman and Wofford. Reed is 6-3 225 with 4.8 speed. He also has an offer from Newberry and expects numerous others in the coming months. Collin is looking for a school with “great academics as well as a great (football) program and coaching staff.” While all three of the schools who have offered are very close to home, he doesn’t mind going away to school for the right opportunity.

Reed is an outstanding pass catching tight end and a capable blocker. As a junior, he compiled over 500 yards and 8 touchdowns (GoUpstatePreps) on a team which finished 8-5. The upside for Collin is that he has the bulk to be an outstanding blocker on top of being a legitimate receiving threat. Whether its the Paladins, Terriers, or another program that ultimately lands Reed, someone will get a player who can impact both the rushing and passing game for their offense.

Unreported 2014 VMI Football Signees

DT Xavier Greenfield – 6-1 270 – Ridgeway, VA

Xavier is a big guy although not exceptionally tall. He does not have great foot speed but gets a really nice jump off the ball. I would expect Greenfield to play over the ball at nose guard for the Keydets. Below is a snippet from VMI’s Press Release on the Class of 2014:
xavier greenfield

OL Chase Smith – 6-3 275 – Purcellville, VA

I admit to being partial to the offensive line; even so I think Chase could be the gem of this class for the Keydets. At 6-3 275, he enters college with outstanding size. Smith really drives off the ball on running plays and has quick feet in pass protection. Chase could easily be a quick impact player for the Keydets. (Per VMIKeydets.com: 3-year starter, All-conference, All-State)

LB Allan Cratsenberg – 6-3 225 – Natrona Heights, PA

I love the fire with which Allan plays. He is very aggressive playing both sides of the ball. I love the pursuit on defense with reckless abandon. He’s the kind of player who quickly becomes a crowd favorite. (Per VMIKeydets.com: All-State LB)

LB Brian Lipscomb – 6-3 225 4.78 – Hampton, VA

Brian is a tenacious defender especially in pass rushing situations. In a 4-3, he would probably play defensive end, but at VMI he’ll likely play outside linebacker in their 3-4. He’ll still be key in pass rushing situations, but he may have to work on his coverage skills. His coach has the following comments for Recruit 757:
brian lipscomb

DB Greg Sanders – 5-10 170 4.53 – Cordova, TN

Sanders is a very solid defensive back. At his size, corner would seem the likely fit, but his game is a great fit at safety. Greg tackles well and makes good plays on the ball in coverage. I would not be surprised to see him add some weight and play FS for the Keydets. From VMIKeydets.com:
greg sanders

DB Michael Williams – 5-10 170 4.54 – Powder Springs, GA

Williams is the prototypical cover corner. He has good speed and quickness with outstanding instincts. Michael has strong cover skills which should serve him well in the SoCon.
