Benedictine’s defense was stellar all season long, as opponents struggled to gain any yardage. Outside linebacker Wendell Davis played a huge role in that defense and colleges took notice.
The 6-2, 220-pound outside linebacker finished the year with 45 tackles and 4 sacks. He earned second team VISAA All-State honors and picked up 10 offers, including Wake Forest, Boston College, and Duke. Recently, Davis added his eleventh offer from Indiana to his list.
In only his junior year, Davis already has ACC and Big 10 offers. He is hoping that with an even more impressive senior season, he can add more big schools to his list.
Players who can dominate on both sides of the ball do not come around often, but when they do, they are game changers. For Glen Allen, it found this in Jebril Murray.
Murray racked up 41 receptions for 593 yards and 9 touchdowns, emerging as one of leaders for his team. His play was just as strong on defense, as he finished with 42 tackles, 23 passes defended, and 6 interceptions including one returned for a touchdown.
Colleges couldn’t help but notice the star juniors potential. Recently, the first team All-Conference wide receiver picked up another offer from Bucknell University. As he enters into his senior year, Murray will be hoping that more colleges take notice of his all-around skills.
“I am thankful for the offer,” said Murray. “I got a chance to visit there my sophomore year, but I’m going Sunday and being able to go with offer will offer some different perspective.”
