2014: Delaware "Players to Know"

Troy Reeder

The 2014 recruiting season is now front-and-center, and as we jump deep into it, FOXSportsNEXT will take you around the northeast region in this week-long "Names to Know" series. It continues with the 2014 players in Delaware's class.

The 2013 class is signed and schools are digging into the 2014 class. Each day this week, FOXSportsNEXT will take a look at "Players to Know" in the 2014, and the lists will be broken into groups in the northeast region.

Each player on this list holds FBS offers, with many of them holding double digit verbal offers. Take at look at six players (listed alphabetically) everyone should know in Delaware.


Chris Godwin, WR, 6-3, 200, Middletown (Del.) High
Skinny: Godwin is one of the top receivers in the region, using a combination of size, speed and power to go with excellent hands. He also has seen his recruitment go national with offers across the nation, including Stanford, and also recently picked up offers from Virginia Tech, Northwestern and Vanderbilt. He said he hears the most Stanford, Penn State, Rutgers and Ohio State.


Wesley Jones, DT, 6-2, 265, Alexix I. Dupont High, Wilmington, Del.
Skinny: Jones plays with a low center of gravity and is a run stopper. He is hearing from several FBS programs, including Maryland, Penn State, Pittsburgh and Boston College, where his brother, C.J. Jones, is a defensive back. He is looking for his first offer.


Andrew Marshall, OT, 6-6, 340, Milford (Del.) High
Skinny: Marshall needs to work on his bend and extending his arms, but he has a very good frame and he moves his feet well. He is looking for his first offer, but he is hearing from Delaware, Penn State and Rutgers.


Brian O'Neill, 6-6, 230, Salesianum School, Wilmington, Del.
Skinny: O'Neill runs well for his size and can be a factor in the passing game although Salesianum doesn't throw the ball often. Rutgers, Maryland, Penn State and Delaware were by to see him during the contact period but he is still looking for his first offer.


Troy Reeder, LB, 6-3, 230, Salesianum School, Wilmington, Del.
Skinny: Reeder is a fabulous lacrosse player and actually committed to North Carolina for the sport. However, he is also getting plenty of attention as a linebacker and is considering playing that sport in college. He holds double-digit offers and has taken a number of visits, including one during the season to Penn State.


Darius Wade, QB, 6-1, 190, Middletown (Del.) High
Skinny: Wade has good arm strength and can also make plays with his feet. His change of direction is very good and he accelerates well. He needs to improve his ability to get his eyes off the rush and keep them down the field but he has plenty of talent and upside. He holds offers from Delaware and Massachusetts, and could grab some BCS offers with a strong spring.
