STATE CHAMPS! 300: A dozen specialists to watch for the 2020 season

By: , June 8, 2020, 1:54 pm

Finally in our STATE CHAMPS! 300, we’re highlighting the unheralded specialists, guys that don’t always get the glory or the headlines, unless they make or miss the big kick. It’s not necessarily meant to be comprehensive, nor is it possible to get every offer — the landscape is constantly changing — but we are more than willing to add an offer, if we missed one. (We’ll limit it to actual scholarship offers, though, not just roster spots.)

We’ve given you 100 additional 2021 players to keep an eye on, and 58 underclassmen to watch. Now, to finish off the 300, here are a dozen specialists to know.

These are in alphabetical order, not ranked.
