good size, probably a DL, but can you imagine him as MLB with the size, strength, and movement

The 2 players from Venice are outstanding.Saw them play a number of times this season including playoffs.Marlem is quick,very quick off the ball-an edge defender and Scott is extremely strong with a low center of gravity even at 6-3,265.His frame could easily take another 20lbs.Foresee Scott on the inside DL with his quickness along with the potential size and strength of Thomas Evans,former Spider.

There were other Venice D1 potential players particularly an RB who ended up committing Chatty.We were fully rostered at RB.Their QB is headed to ODU.Many others with numerous offers.

Jeff Durden did a great job with all these FL recruits.Lots of territory down here.

Spiders pick up a quarterback, Air Force transfer Beau English, from DeMatha High in Maryland
JOHN O'CONNOR·3 hours ago


The University of Richmond may have acquired its starting quarterback.


Beau English will transfer to UR from Air Force, where he spent two years. English, who has three seasons of eligibility remaining, recently signed a grant-in-aid with the Spiders, according to a Richmond spokesperson, and is expected to enroll at UR over the summer.

English, a running threat as well as a passer, did not play in a game during two years at Air Force.

English, a 6-foot 200-pounder from Stevenson, Md., set the school passing record (4,558 yards) at DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Md. He threw for 45 career touchdowns and ran for 23. From a military family, English considered Air Force, Army and Navy out of DeMatha.

English last season was third-team QB for the Falcons, who finished 5-7 and third among FBS teams in rushing offense (283.5 ypg).

In UR's 15 spring sessions, redshirt juniors Joe Mancuso and Reid Chenault (Goochland) received most of the work at quarterback. Chenault came to UR as a walk-on and started the Spiders' 2018 season finale, a 10-6 win at William & Mary. He played in three other games last year. Mancuso made four starts last season for the Spiders, who went 4-7 (2-6 CAA). Richmond is bringing in freshman quarterback Jackson Walker.

As a dual-threat quarterback, English fits what the Spiders want to do. UR coach Russ Huesman said he would like his quarterback to run about 10 times a game.

Spiders QBs last season (4-7, 2-6 CAA) threw 18 interceptions. In the 124-member FCS, only VMI threw more (19).

Quarterback Beau English leaving Air Force for FCS program


Quarterback Beau English III is leaving Air Force.

Again.

The sophomore is transferring to Richmond, as first reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch. He is expected to immediately compete for a starting job and will have three years of eligibility remaining at the Football Championship Subdivision program close to his Maryland home.

  • This is the second consecutive offseason that English announced his intentions to leave the academy. Following his freshman year he began the process to transfer to Virginia before reversing course and staying.

    The 6-foot, 200-pound English put together a strong spring for Air Force and was expected to challenge rising senior Isaiah Sanders for the No. 2 position behind starting quarterback Donald Hammond III. Hammond and English are in the same class.

    “Beau English is a guy you know you can put in and win some games with,” Air Force offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Mike Thiessen said in early March.

    The loss of English will hurt Air Force’s depth at the quarterback, a spot where it has started three players in each of the past two seasons. English was a high school standout at DeMatha in Hyattsville, Md., finishing his career with 45 passing and 23 rushing touchdowns and establishing a record for the touted program with 4,558 passing yards.

    Richmond went 4-7 last year and struggled at quarterback, where its 18 interceptions ranked second to last in FCS. English’s father, Donny, was a 1995 Air Force graduate.

Spiders add graduate linebacker from Illinois as fifth FBS transfer
JOHN O'CONNOR·1 hour ago


The University of Richmond added a fifth FBS transfer Monday when former Illinois linebacker Jimmy Marchese joined the Spiders.

Marchese, a 6-foot-2 220-pounder from Vernon Hills, Ill., is a graduate transfer who played mostly special teams during his time at Illinois. He started two games as a sophomore.

Other graduate transfers who have become Spiders for this season are receiver Charlie Fessler (Northwestern) and defensive back Brandon Feamster (Duke). Receiver Keyston Fuller (Duke), a senior, also transferred to Richmond.

Air Force transfer Beau English, a quarterback from Stevenson, Md., spent two years at AFA and has three seasons of eligibility remaining at UR.

The Spiders also added junior-college transfer Roland Williams, a defensive back with three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Feeling cautiously optimistic about the upcoming season. Lots of high caliber incoming freshman, believe a few will provide solid contributions from the get go, even if only special teams. Like the portfolio of transfers, appears they bring some good experience in key spots. Nice job recruiting coaches, keep it up. Let's make a deep run.
