The Weekend That Was: Recruiting, Visits & Combine Workouts

We thought we’d get you caught up on what was a busy weekend on the recruiting trail for St. Louis area high school athletes, who spent the weekend on the road.

The biggest news may have been made by Lafayette rising Senior Tight End Brendan Scales.

Scales is not the only St. Louis-area senior-to-be who has an offer from Alabama. He was joined at the Crimson Tide Spring Game by O’Fallon Township Kicker Tucker McCann.

The Mizzou Black and Gold Scrimmage was also a popular ticket for many, including Holt QB Emilio Monsivais and a pair from Howell.

A Rivals Combine also attracted college prospects from around the area to O’Fallon, IL, all looking to boost their stock. One of the highest profile rising Seniors didn’t have to travel very far at all, as Illinois RB pledge Kentrail Moran got to perform on his home turf.

Among the participants was Westminster Christian Academy rising Sophomore QB Chad Briden, who told us afterward what he hoped he accomplished.

I liked it! It was good to see how I stack up physically with other quarterbacks my age. I don’t think I did as well as I could have done if it wasn’t raining. My goals were to stack up with the other quarterbacks my age in the top 5 and I think I could have done that! I want to build on these scores because they are not nearly what they could be.

Speaking to just how much these student-athletes are on the road in the offseason, we saw Scales’ Lafayette teammate Chase Behrndt note how he’d gone 1,000+ miles in back-to-back weekends. Last week it was to Purdue. This weekend he was in Madison, Wisconsin.
