Recruiting Roundup: Illingworth and Presley Have Monster Season-Openers

first_imgWhen you’re a future Division I athlete, playing against high school athletes is kind of not fair. For several OSU commits opening their season this past week, it’s almost comical.Quarterback pledge Shane Illingworth began his senior season last week when he casually tossed seven touchdowns in a 52-27 win, which included 476 yards passing. Bixby receiver Brennan Presley, Illingworth’s future No. 1 target, nearly one-upped him this past weekend. Presley caught a team-high 17 passes for a team-high 237 yards receiving and scored a team-high six touchdowns. If you could add high school players to your fantasy football roster, Presley might just be your No. 1 target in a PPR league.Here’s how some other future Cowboys fared in Week 1 this past weekend.Shane Illingworth, QBAfter tossing seven touchdowns in his season debut, Illingworth and his Norco squad were on a bye in Week 2.
