Colonial Forge Athlete Names Top 5

As reported in last week’s Sabre Scoop, Colonial Forge (Stafford, VA) wide receiver/athlete Gary Jennings has formed a list of top schools.

“I’ve started to narrow it down a little, but I’m not in any rush (to commit) at the moment,” said Jennings, a 6’2”, 190-pound rising senior.

“I’ve narrowed it down to Vandy, WVU, Wisconsin, UVa, and BC. If any other schools arise I will take those into account also.”

UVa and Old Dominion were the first two FBS schools to offer Jennings. The Colonial Forge standout calls UVa “a fantastic school and great program,” adding that it “has a lot of things going for them.”

Up next in terms of visits for the Eagles standout is a July 26 trip to West Virginia. At this point, no other visits are scheduled.

When it comes times to make a college choice, what will be the most important factors?

“Being able to flourish both athletically and academically,” Jennings answered. “And also being able to develop a good relationship with the coaching staff.”

Colonial Forge made a big run in the state playoffs last season, upsetting a powerful Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) squad in a 6A South Region semifinal before falling to Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) in the 6A South Region final. The Eagles finished with a 10-4 overall record in 2013.

Jennings, one of the more versatile athletes on his team, saw action at quarterback, wide receiver and free safety his junior season. His playmaking skills will be counted upon significantly this upcoming season, as Colonial Forge looks to make a deeper postseason run.

“My offseason is going very well. I have gotten bigger, stronger and faster,” Jennings said. “[The team] is in pretty good shape. We all are very dedicated to the program and have high aspirations for the season ahead.”

Top TE Prospect Visits UVa

On Sunday night into Monday, UVa hosted top tight end target Jake Pickard, a 6’6”, 235-pound rising senior out of Millburn High School in New Jersey. Pickard would be an ideal get for the Hoos, who are in search of a tight end who could add immediate depth
