More Offers

Gavin Holmes

Sophomore Offer?

File this under “it’s never too early,” a rising junior/current sophomore has just Tweeted that he’s received an offer from Columbia.

The young man in question is  dual threat QB named Luke Shiflett from Northwest Whitfield HS in Tunnel, GA.  

I was under the impression that the students who are still currently sophomores in high school could not get conditional Ivy offers until September of their junior years, but it’s possible Shiflett is old enough age-wise and perhaps that makes the difference. Another possibility is that some of the rules have been changed.

The rest of the recent offerees are current juniors. They are:

WR/DB Gavin Holmes from Northwest HS in Fort Worth TX. This speedster is the real deal.

CB Jacob Abrams from Carmel HS in Carmel, Indiana.  That’s the same school where Columbia found LB Brian East ’14, who was a good player for us.

DE Deondre Carter from Cedar Hill HS in Cedar Hill, TX. One previous Lion came from that high school: Matt Russell ’97.

OL Clay Padgett from Edmond North HS in Edmond, OK. 

QB Ethan Maenza from North Allegheny HS in Wexford, PA. Former Lions Dan Slivka ’15 and John Hite ’83 came from the same high school.

RB B.J. Watson from Calvert Hall HS in Baltimore, MD. Marty Fischer ’78, came to the Lions from that school.

WR Luke Montgomery from Glendale HS in Springfield, MO.

I looked at Shiflett's highlights; and if it's true about the offer, I can see why!
