Since Bob Milloy took over at Olney (Md.) Good Counsel back in 2001, the Maryland High School Hall of Famer and state’s all-time winningest coach has seen 87 of his former Falcons players go onto play college football in some capacity.
Future247 RB Dorian O'Daniel shares the load in the backfield with his senior teammate Wes Brown.
That number will significantly rise this coming signing day led by Top247 seniors Stefon Diggs (uncommitted) and Wes Brown (uncommitted), and classmates Mike Madaras (committed to Maryland), Roderick Chungong (committed to Georgia Tech) and Ryan Watson (uncommitted) among others.
The list will continue to grow as college coaches are already recruiting many of the younger prospects on the Good Counsel roster.
As a sophomore, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound O’Daniel rushed for 560 yards and eight touchdowns on just 108 carries. Iowa, Maryland, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Virginia and Wisconsin are among the many schools that have already extended O’Daniel a full-ride. One Good Counsel coach said he wouldn’t be surprised if O’Daniel eventually grew into a linebacker on the next level.
At 6-foot, 181- pounds, Fuller’s early recruitment has him on track to be one of the nation’s most touted prospects in his class. Boston College, Florida, Florida State, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Virginia and Virginia Tech have already offered Fuller, who has learned a lot from his older brothers Vincent and Kyle. Both played for the Hokies. As a sophomore, Fuller had 30 tackles and two interceptions.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Garner is another talented defensive back that is reporting nine offers from West Virginia, Maryland, Florida State, Purdue, Cincinnati, Navy, Ohio, North Carolina State and Boston College.
Junior outside linebacker Reggie McGee stands in at 6-foot-3, 200-pounds and already holds offers from Mississippi State, North Carolina State and Purdue.
The sophomore class figures to be just as touted. Offensive lineman Sam Madaras, the younger brother of senior teammate Mike, is a thick 6-foot-2, 315-pounds, with scholarships from North Carolina State, Ohio and Eastern Kentucky. Classmate and fellow offensive lineman Sam Mustipher, who is listed at 6-foot-4, 270-pounds, has full-rides from Illinois, Ohio State and North Carolina State. Safety Kobe Walker is an impressive looking 6-foot-3, 200-pounds with an offer from North Carolina State.
More BCS prospects will emerge throughout the season including junior quarterback Brendan Marshall, who is already hearing from the likes of Stanford, Maryland and West Virginia.
