On Sept. 15, coaches from NC State, Georgia and Florida State, among others, were on the sidelines at Harding High in Charlotte to watch the Rams host state power and city-rival Mallard Creek High. Mallard Creek would prevail 30-9 over Harding, but the game was closer than that as Harding actually controlled the action for most of the three quarters before a series of turnovers doomed its chances. NC State head coach Dave Doeren and tight ends/fullbacks coach and special teams coordinator Eddie Faulkner were there to watch four-star lineman Jordan Davis from Mallard Creek and four-star junior running back Quavaris Crouch, four-star offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn and three-star defensive back Malik Dunlap from Harding, among likely others.
Here’s a look back at the last week of action involving the Maize and Blue’s recruiting efforts: • With college and high school teams passing the halfway point of their 2017 seasons, recruiting news is starting to pick back up. The recruiting trail always has some action and a few Michigan-related nuggets have surfaced over the past week. Here is a look back at The Daily Rewinds on Oct. 12, Oct. 16 and Oct. 18. • Michigan has offered Eureka (Mo.) High two-star running back Hassan Haskins and star gazers will probably question the move. The 6-2, 195-pounder is on the rise in terms of his play and potential, and it’s something Rivals.com Midwest recruiting analyst Josh Helmholdt noticed two years
“Horton did practice (Tuesday) on a limited basis but he looked pretty good,” said Malzahn, who referred to the sophomore as day-to-day. On the other side of the ball, Malzahn said defensive end Marlon Davidson (elbow, knee, shoulder), linebacker Tre’ Williams (shoulder), linebacker Deshaun Davis (shoulder), linebacker Darrell Williams (hand) and defensive tackle Derrick Brown (leg) all participated in Tuesday’s practice “They all practiced and all those guys will play,” he said. Senior safety Tray Matthews remains questionable after leaving the LSU game with a hamstring injury. “Tray was limited,” said Malzahn of Tuesday’s practice. “He’ll practice today.” Kickoff at Razorback Stadium is scheduled
“[Moore] just does a great job,” Maryland head coach DJ Durkin said. “He’s a very talented guy. He plays hard. He runs good routes and has good ball skills. So we do a lot to get him the ball and design it that way, and he always answers the call and comes to play every week.” On a national scale, Moore is currently 4th in the FBS in receiving touchdowns, 11th in receiving yards, and 13th in receptions per game. The Biletnikoff Award Selection Committee, a group of college football journalists and commentators, as well as some former college football wide receivers choose the recipient of the highly distinguished award from a group of the nation’s top wideouts. And with the way he’s been playing
Question: If you had to pick a midseason Big 12 coach of the year, who would you go with? Carlton: In order, I would go: 1. Gary Patterson. 2. Matt Campbell. 3. Kliff Kingsbury. Patterson has rebounded from a 6-7 season to have the nation's fourth-ranked team as we speak. So far, he's corrected the problems on offense with quarterback consistency and red-zone struggles while building the No. 1 defense in the conference. Question: With the teams trending in different directions, could Tech be in danger of losing to the Cyclones? Would that be enough to place Kingsbury back on the hot seat? Carlton: Has hot seat become the most over-used phrase this season? Sure seems like it. Every game is big.

With Georgia’s bye weekend upon us, what better time to hand out our own midseason awards. Seven games in, there have already been some memorable plays and players for the third-ranked and undefeated Bulldogs (7-0, 4-0), who face Florida next week in Jacksonville. See what you think: Offensive MVP: Nick Chubb – This is really the only choice as Chubb leads the Bulldogs and the SEC in rushing with 107 carries for 688 yards and eight touchdowns. Although he hasn’t had to be quite the workhorse with the presence of Sony Michel and D’Andre Swift also putting in great work, the school’s second all-time leading rusher has been excellent and well on his way to his third 1,000-yard rushing year.
