Jesuit’s Junior Vandeross commits to Toledo

Published

on

Jesuit athlete Junior Vandeross made his college plans official by committing to Toledo. 

The three-star recruit picked the Rockets over nine other offers, including UCF, Iowa, Iowa State and Kentucky. 

Last season, Vandeross accounted for 1,215 all-purpose yards (981 receiving, 139 in punt returns and 95 rushing) and had 16 touchdowns.  His playmaking abilities helped him become an all-state selection and played a big role in helping the Tigers reach the 5A state semifinals.

Toledo has had plenty of success landing area athletes with multidimensional skills. Former Lakewood standout Bernard Reedy and former Lennard star Diontae Johnson, now with the Steelers, both excelled in that role with the Rockets.

Vandeross’ commitment marks the first area recruit and just the third overall for Toledo in the Class of 2022. It also highlights the recruiting impact of former Plant coach Robert Weiner, now in his second season as an assistant with the Rockets. 

Weiner helped land three former area standouts, Judge Culpepper (Plant/Penn State), Tucker Gleason (Plant/Georgia Tech) and Matt Landers (Admiral Farragut/St. Petersburg/Georgia), al of whom transferred to Toledo and were part of the 2021 class.

Charles Montgomery

Armwood athlete Charles Montgomery put an end to a tumultuous year-long recruiting process by announcing his commitment to Marshall on Tuesday. 

The three-star recruit originally committed to Florida nearly a year ago.

With his college plans seemingly set, Montgomery focused on having a solid senior season. He did just that, leading the Hawks in receiving yards (453) and tying for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (six). 

Before the early signing period, Montgomery’s plans changed. He decommitted to the Gators, then spent the next six months in limbo wondering if he would find the right fit. 

Montgomery found it with the Thundering Herd. 

Marshall has always been an attractive landing spot for locals. There currently are four players from the bay area on the Thundering Herd’s 2021 roster Montgomery’s former Hawks teammate De’Kwan Hughes.

Former Bucs lineman George Johnson takes over at Cambridge

Published

Cambridge Christian moved quickly to name a new football coach, hiring former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end George Johnson to take over the program. 

The school made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday. Johnson replaces Chad Walker, who left after one season to become the coach at the Christ School in Arden, N.C.

Johnson, a former standout at Rutgers, signed with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He spent three seasons in Tampa Bay in his first stint before returning for the 2015 and ‘16 seasons. During an eight-year NFL career, Johnson recorded 66 tackles and eight sacks. 

Johnson stayed in the area after his career ended to train prospects for the NFL combine. Last season, he served as the Lancers’ defensive coordinator. 

The program Johnson inherits is a talented one that is coming off a 9-2 season and a trip to the 2A region semifinals.
