It has been a few years since The Breck School had one of the top recruits in the Midwest, wide receiver Bryce McNeal, but colleges are finding reasons to come back through as they have several players with college potential on their roster.
Quarterback Graydon Kulick is having a good junior season and size and arm strength will be attractive to recruiters.
"This is the first year he's been healthy," offensive coordinator Marcus Harris said. "When he came to us as a freshman, he had a broken back. Last year he was our starter but he broke his hand. But this team doesn't go without Graydon. We're still working on his progressions and seeing the field better, but he's got a huge arm, obviously his size, he's already 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, and he's in the top five in the state in passing so it's just the little nuances that he needs to sharpen up, but he's the real deal."
Since McNeal, the Mustangs have also produced Kasey Robinson, a slot receiver now at Minnesota, and their recent tradition of producing wideouts is continuing with Ramaud Bowman, a sophomore the staff says has big time potential.
"The only thing that will keep him down is injury," Harris said. "He's so legit. He does everything. He pushes himself. You don't need to ask him to do more or do extra, he wants it and he goes and gets it. I wish I could morph him into every player on that field. He has very sharp instincts, good hands, plays both ways and we don't have the success we had this year without Bowman, just the emotional leadership."
Once film from this season begins to make the rounds, Harris is confident about the level of interest Bowman will draw.
"There's 100-plus D1 schools and he could be any one of them just with his work ethic and what he brings to the table. I was just showing him film of Kasey Robinson because his routes are so crisp, but Bow has the same ability, but he's way bigger, so obviously he's going to get way faster, stronger, and he will only get bigger, so with what he has, I don't see any reason he shouldn't be at a D1 school."
Finally, defensive coordinator Jon Martin says junior outside linebacker Kwaku Bodom is one that will be on college radars. The 6-foot-0, 185-pound Bodom is a vicious hitter who thrives on contact.
