senior seasons: how the recruits are doing

As promised earlier, I'm gonna do my best to provide updates - hopefully, weekly - on the senior seasons that our committed recruits have. I doubt I can get this to be completely comprehensive, and defensive guys and both sides of the line in particular are gonna get the short end of the stick, because "blocked a bunch of dudes" rarely makes the little blurbs. Here's the first one.

Dominique Wallace:

Ran for 164 yards and a 24-yard touchdown on 15 carries in Chancellor's 33-0 win over Turner Ashby.

A game to watch in the future will be on September 12 when Chancellor visits Quintin Hunter's Orange County. Orange County, as best I can tell, hasn't played a game yet, except for a preseason benefit game that doesn't count in the standings.

Sean Cascarano:

Cascarano was named to the Chicago Sun-Times' preseason all-Chicago offense. Cascarano's Glenbrook South team beat rival Glenbrook North 35-7 to start the season.

Tucker Windle:

Charlotte Catholic beat Myers Park 21-20 to go to 1-1. Windle had two touchdown catches.

Perry Jones:

Ran for 83 yards and three touchdowns in Oscar Smith's 43-0 season-opening win over Booker T. Washington.

Next on the agenda: recruiting board. No actual updates, but a couple tidbits here:

Rivals pay article in which Justin Brown reiterates his interest in UVA: "not in danger of being cut from my list," are his words.

DE Michael Buchanan will take his officials to Cal, Illinois, Purdue, and Vandy, and "isn't sure" about where his fifth will be. Like Rex Burkhead, consider this a longshot.
