  • Three CFC40s participated in the Reese’s Senior Bowl practices and game this week, and it appears that at least a couple of them made themselves some money. WR Josh Palmer impressed all week and had a couple catches for 27 yards and a TD in the game. CB Benjamin St-Juste showed off his range and quick hips in practices and had a couple pass breakups in the game, including one preventing a Josh Palmer touchdown. The coaches moved OT Alaric Jackson around a lot, as he spent most of his time this week playing on the right side of the line, forcing him to flip his footwork which took some adjusting, obviously. All these guys have solidified themselves as NFL Draft picks come April.


  • CFC100 DE Luiji Vilain has announced his transfer from Michigan to Wake Forest for the 2021 season. The pass rusher, after going through his confusing college career thus far riddled with knee injuries, seemingly comes out of the transfer with two years of eligibility left to play for the Demon Deacons. The former 4-star recruit has played in 12 games over the past 2 seasons, where he’s registered 11 tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble in a limited role on an extremely deep defensive line that likely includes two future NFL first-round edge rushers in Kwity Paye and Aidan Hutchinson.
  • Over the past couple weeks, CFC Prospect Game CFC100 WR Elic Ayomanor has picked up four new D1 offers. His talent has caught the eyes of Bowling Green, Kent State, Liberty, and Arizona. This brings the prospect’s offer count to 11, and it doesn’t look like he’s slowing down. CFC60 DB Frederik Lesieur also committed to Penn State as a preferred walk-on this week.
