Offer from Clemson ‘would mean a lot’ to Georgia OL, younger brother of current Tiger

Among the standout prospects who participated in the Dabo Swinney Camp earlier this month was the younger brother of a current Clemson defensive lineman.

South Gwinnett High School (Snellville, Ga.) offensive lineman Marcus Mascoll – a 6-foot-5, 297-pound rising junior in the class of 2024 – worked out at the Swinney Camp on Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11.

“It was a very good camp,” Mascoll told The Clemson Insider. “Very tiring, of course… but it was a good experience. Got to talk to Coach TA (Clemson offensive line coach Thomas Austin). They gave me a lot of help and tips. This is my second year playing the (offensive line) position, so I’ve still got a lot to learn. But it was a good experience.”

Mascoll’s older brother, Justin, is of course a defensive end for the Tigers entering his redshirt senior season in 2022.

“He likes it up there,” Marcus said of his sibling. “It’s a very good place to be at, good atmosphere, and the fans are great. That’s one thing I learned about Clemson.”

This summer marked the younger Mascoll’s first time camping at Clemson.

“I’d say one-on-ones was really the highlight,” he said. “That’s what the coaches mainly wanted to see, how I would do against these older guys and these higher-ranked guys.”

Speaking of the coaches, Marcus had the chance to chat with Austin at the camp, and at the time he spoke with TCI, Marcus was expecting the Tigers’ offensive line coach to follow up and get back in touch with him to speak some more.

“We just talked about stuff I could work on, a lot of little stuff,” Marcus said of Austin. “Coach Ski (Clemson assistant coach Lemanski Hall) told me Coach Austin was supposed to text me at some point in time just to talk to me and stuff.”

Marcus hopes to draw interest from Clemson moving forward after being able to camp there and show the coaches what he can do.

“It would be a good feeling to know that I’m getting looked at by a school my brother attends,” he said. “A lot of people are watching me of course, just because I’m the younger brother of Justin.”

Although Marcus’s recruiting process is just getting started, he picked up his first offer from Pittsburgh in May, and UCF is another school looking at him. He visited UCF in April and was slated to camp at Georgia last week.

“I bring physicality,” he said, describing himself as an offensive lineman. “When I see that person in front of me, I’m going to dominate them, and I feel like I play fast. I’m new to the position, so there’s a lot of stuff I need to learn. But physicality is one of the main things I bring to the table.”

Marcus, who hopes to make it back to Clemson sooner than later, would love to earn an offer from the Tigers in the future and have the opportunity to follow in his brother’s footsteps to Tiger Town.

“An offer from Clemson would mean a lot,” he said. “That’s something my family would be pumped up about, my brother especially. It would be an honor, great feeling.”

Oklahoma Sooners receive crystal ball projection from Oklahoma State 247Sports Insider

The Sooners received another projection in favor of landing one of the top players in the state of Oklahoma, four-star ATH Jacobe Johnson.

After several quiet months surrounding the recruitment of four-star athlete Jacobe Johnson, the Oklahoma Sooners received another crystal ball projection to land the Mustang, Oklah. product.

While the previous projections came from OUInsiders Parker Thune and Brandon Drumm, and 247Sports National Recruiting Director Steve Wiltfong, this one comes from someone that covers the Oklahoma State Cowboys for GoPokes.com, Cody Nagel.

Nagel’s prediction is moderately confident that Oklahoma will land the athletic Jacobe Johnson. At this point, the Sooners own 100% of the Rivals‘ future casts, four crystal ball predictions from 247Sports, and On3’s Recruiting Prediction Machine gives Oklahoma an 86.3%.

It seems that the Oklahoma Sooners are closing in on a commitment for Johnson who also is considering Alabama and Michigan quite heavily as well. Brent Venables is no stranger to big-time recruiting battles, winning his fair share when he was the defensive coordinator at Clemson.

Nothing’s over until the player signs on the dotted line on National Signing Day, but the Sooners might have this commitment right where they want it.

Michigan State football has landed in the top six of a four-star safety prospect that intends to commit in the next few weeks.

Four-star safety Avery Stuart of Montgomery, Ala. released his top six schools list on Sunday, which included Michigan State. The Spartans were joined by Auburn, Florida State, Arkansas, Miami (FL) and Kentucky.

Stuart is ranked as the No. 197 overall prospect and No. 12 safety in 247Sports’ composite rankings. He holds offers from 20 different schools, according to 247Sports.

4-star 2023 OT Trevor Lauck commits to the Iowa Hawkeyes, becomes 13th commit

Four-star offensive tackle Trevor Lauck committed to Iowa, fortifying the Hawkeyes up front and representing the 13th pledge so far.

A big recruiting weekend for Iowa has already netted the Hawkeyes their first commitment. Class of 2023 offensive tackle Trevor Lauck announced his pledge to the Hawkeyes Sunday evening. He is a 6-foot-6, 285 pound from Roncalli High School in Indianapolis, Ind.

According to Rivals, Lauck is a four-star commit, the nation’s No. 229 player overall, the No. 25 offensive tackle, and the No. 3 player from Indiana. In the 247Sports composite rankings, Lauck is also regarded as a four-star commit, the No. 396 player nationally, the No. 33 offensive tackle and the No. 5 player from the Hoosier State.

ESPN and On3 both rate Lauck as a three-star commit. According to On3, Lauck is the nation’s No. 40 interior offensive lineman and the No. 8 player from Indiana. The On3 consensus rankings has Lauck as the country’s No. 441 player overall and as the No. 34 interior offensive lineman. Finally, ESPN rates Lauck as the No. 48 offensive tackle and the No. 5 player from Indiana.

“I’d like to thank God for putting me in the position I am in and for the blessings he’s gifted me with. I want to thank my mom, dad, family, and friends for everything they do for me and their endless support. Thank you coach Otley, Rodenberg, Quintana, and all the Roncalli staff. I want to thank each coach that has recruited me and built a relationship with me throughout the process. With that being said, I am committed to the University of Iowa! Go Hawkeyes!!!” Lauck wrote in his Twitter announcement.

Lauck represents the 13th commitment in Iowa’s 2023 class that currently ranks No. 17 nationally according to 247Sports and No. 18 according to Rivals. The Hawkeyes’ class is headlined in part by quarterback commit Marco Lainez III, who recently detailed why he’s remained loyal to Iowa.

Lauck also joins three-star offensive linemen Leighton Jones and Cannon Leonard. Here’s a look at Lauck’s junior season Hudl tape at Roncalli High School and a look at his full recruiting profile.

Social media reaction from the Iowa Hawkeyes’ visitors following big visit weekend

Iowa hosted a number of top targets this weekend. Here were their reactions on social media to the recruiting weekend that was.

Iowa just finished hosting its largest and most important official visit weekend of the year. A series of 2023 commits were on hand, including quarterback Marco Lainez III, athletes Aidan Hall, Zach Lutmer and Alex Mota, offensive lineman Leighton Jones, defensive ends Chase Brackney and David Caulker, linebacker Ben Kueter, defensive lineman Maddux Borcherding-Johnson and defensive back John Nestor.

Beyond those 2023 pledges, the Hawkeyes also welcomed in 13 key targets. Of course, that group included five-star offensive tackle target Kadyn Proctor of Southeast Polk High School, who just narrowed his list of possible college choices down to Iowa or Alabama. If you believe a pair of Rivals experts, then Proctor mixing this Hawkeye visit in means he’ll ultimately commit to Iowa.

In addition to Proctor, Iowa brought in fellow 2023 offensive tackles Logan Howland of the Hun School, Trevor Lauck of Roncalli High School and Christopher Terek of Glenbard West High School. A pair of tight ends made the trip, too. Mount Vernon High School’s George Burhenn and St. Louis University’s Zach Ortwerth.

Along the defensive line, Iowa welcomed in Martin Luther King High School edge rusher Kenneth Merrieweather, Cathedral High School defensive lineman Kendrick Gilbert, Washington High School defensive lineman Trevor Buhr and Olathe South High School edge rusher Jordan Allen.

Also in attendance were athletes Asa Newsom of Waverly-Shell Rock High School and Kahlil Tate of Kenwood Academy and wide receiver Jaron Tibbs of Cathedral High School. Here’s a look at the full list of visitors and their 247Sports recruiting profiles. Below, several of the Hawkeyes’ visitors shared their reactions to their trip to Iowa City.

COMMITTED: Jaydon Chatman and Andre Cojoe fortify Texas’ OL class

Texas reeled in two more big time offensive linemen.

Texas reeled in two more big time offensive linemen on Sunday evening. Jaydon Chatman and Andre Cojoe committed in favor of the Longhorns. The two linemen appeared to be toward the top of Kyle Flood’s priorities.

Cojoe has become a familiar name in Texas recruiting. The 6-foot-6, 330-pound lineman will look to lean on his imposing size to win battles at the next level.

The interior offense lineman from Mansfield Timberview High School took visits to Texas, TCU, and Vanderbilt. He received offers from Texas A&M, Nebraska, Arizona State and Oklahoma State among others.

Chatman is another huge get for the Longhorns. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound lineman chose Texas over a number of suitors. His visit list included Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and LSU.

The four-star lineman from Harker Heights, Texas is a trailblazer for his running backs and fast off the line of scrimmage. He is the No. 9 interior offensive lineman in the country according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
