Coaches, you can only keep things a secret for so long. Once the passing circuit begins, everything is out in the open. So on that note, here are two transfers that have flown under the radar until now but have the chance to be impactful this fall.
Elijah Jones leaves Damien for Upland — Jones has major upside and I know the previous Damien coaching staff was very excited about the junior-to-be RB/DB. Well, he didn’t stick around La Verne for the Mark Paredes Era at Damien and is now at
Damien Upland and looking good if this springs’ results mean anything. So now Damien has lost its returning QB and best offensive threat. Yowza!
Alex Powell leaves Charter Oak for South Hills — You see? Charter Oak does lose players! Powell looked good at times last year as a WR/DB and he gives South Hills the kind of outside speed the Huskies could really use. Powell, who is the younger brother of former Charter Oak standout AJ Powell, is a senior-to-be. He would have had a larger for CO this fall, but maybe he felt South Hills was a better place to be. CO has an abundance of skill players, so I don’t think they’ll be in big trouble over this. Good get for the Huskies.
