Nationally recognized prep football program DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, MD) has eight seniors with at least one FBS offer, including three that have committed to major FBS programs. The talent continues to flow in for head coach Bill McGregor, who’ll likely have a powerful program for seasons to come.
The Stags, ranked #16 in this week’s USA Today Super 25, have finished the regular season with a 10-0 record and will face Gonzaga in the semifinals of the WCAC playoffs. There is no question that those talented seniors are a major part of the team’s success, but there is also no question that there is significant talent running through the roster.
Junior lineman Cyrus Kouandjio headlines McGregor’s list of 2011 college prospects. Tech has not offered but is showing interest in Kouandjio, whose brother Arie is a top 2010 class lineman.
“Billy Hite asked for a couple of game films on Cyrus,” McGregor said. “I mailed him two game films but I haven’t heard back.

If he is healthy, he’s a no-brainer. He is about 6-2, 242 pounds right now. He could be our tailback next year.
“[6-2, 222-pound LB/RB] Darien Harris went up to Syracuse’s camp and they made an offer to him. [6-3, 280-pound OG/DL] Darian Cooper will be a good one. Another one is Michael Williams, who is the younger brother of [former Maryland and current Minnesota Vikings DB] Madieu Williams. He has an offer from Maryland. Jordan Lomax will be good. He can fly. He is a track kid. He is a legit...
