2024 Four-Star Midfielder Willis (Texas) DJ Lagway announced his top 10 Sunday afternoon, as the prominent signal caller in the Houston area takes the next step in his recruiting.
A multi-year starter for Willis, Lagway has received more than 30 offers from programs around the country, including a select few from within state borders.
Since some dominoes are already starting to fall into midfield in 2024, let’s see which shows have the best chance of landing Lagway in this issue of Ranked Competitors.
BANKING CLASS OF 2025: Opponent100
1. Texas A&USA
Texas A&M brought out Lagway early ahead of his sophomore season and has since made him a priority at quarterback in the class of 2024. Unless the Aggies can flip Malachi Nelson from USC in the 2023 cycle, the 2024 cycle will be extremely important to Jimbo Fisher to find a top quarterback talent who could be a starter for many years in College Station. That throw alone helped propel the Aggies to the top of the leaderboard for Lagway, who has two plays this season to College Station.
It’s hard to find a fan base and coaching staff that have done such a good job recruiting Lagway as Floridalike Billy NapierThe team’s lineup welcomed four stars to Gainesville earlier this month amid a lot of fanfare surrounding his arrival. Napier bought Lagway into the program early on and made him a top Gators quarterback target in his class. The roadblock to the Gators would convince Lagway to move around the country with plenty of solid picks in his area, but Florida was soon well positioned to at least have a shot.
After Oklahoma attack coordinator Jeff Lebby saw Lagway throw in on his first day of spring practice at Willis earlier this year, the Sooners’ attacking mind immediately expanded on an offer and has since been active in recruiting. his. While there are some other incentives in place that may make more sense for Sooners (Michael Hawkins), that didn’t stop them from recruiting Lagway the hard way and staying in the race. It will be interesting to see if Oklahoma can bring Lagway to campus this season and how they roll out multiple picks in the class of 2024 as time goes on.
Clemson notoriously took time in the process of evaluating and expanding the offer after doing a complete research, but that process ended quickly when Lagway was launched. Dabo Swinney and his staff have only given out two quarters by 2024 with Lagway’s participation Jadyn Davis, so the attention around Lagway was increased by his high competence from the early staff. Lagway made two visits during the season and received multiple communications from staff on September 1, but the return to Clemson will help determine if the Tigers can move higher on this list. .
LSU launched Lagway after a game visit to Baton Rouge last fall, and the four-star star has since returned to Death Valley twice during the season. quarterback coach Joe Sloan has found a lot of talent in the class of 2024 in the placement pool and has done a solid job in juggling multiple targets, including Lagway. As the class dominoes began to fall and the picture became clearer of more targets, I could see the Tigers heating up in Lagway and prompting an official visit in the spring.
After a trip to Tuscaloosa cho AlabamaOn Junior’s return in January, Tide invited Lagway and has since become regular communication. However, if I had to determine who I think is the last in the class as quarterback, I would say Michael Van Buren. That being said, Alabama will continue to recruit many of the top targets in its class. It will talk about Alabama’s chances if Lagway makes it to Tuscaloosa this season.
Even though he’s a four year old boy Baylor great, Lagway has always insisted that his hiring will not be influenced by his family’s past but he will exercise his due care in exploring his options both in Waco and other places. However, that didn’t stop the Bears from pursuing Lagway heavily as a quarterback coach Shawn Bells has been able to greet Lagway on campus many times since being the first coach to deliver. I don’t see Baylor making an official visit at this time, but if the Bears can sneak in, there could be a door open to keep the Lagway family football lineage going in Waco.
Lagway does a lot in the field of reflecting the present Arkansas midfielder KJ Jefferson, and that’s part of the reason why the Razorbacks are still in this race. The blueprint is pretty clear in Fayetteville, but there are some obstacles to Sam Pittman and its staff to perfect before becoming a main contender in this race. Luckily for them, there are solid options they have on offer including all four stars in status Walker White. However, Lagway has visited Arkansas several times and continues to stay in regular contact.
Lagway visited USC through the season and still keep in touch with Lincoln Riley and its staff. Among Lagway’s remaining options, the Trojans mean little as the location’s future is largely secured with Malachi Nelson and the arrival of the target in the state. Elijah Brown in 2024, but if USC loses Nelson, that could make things interesting in this hiring round. However, I now see USC as an external competitor.
Next Arch Manningcommitment of Texasa lot of rumors began to generate for the 2024 five-star midfielder Julian Sayin commit Georgiagive the Bulldogs a path to their quarterback in 2024. That said, Lagway has visited Georgia several times and is close friends with the four-star wide receiver. Drelon Miller who had Bulldogs at the top of his list from the very beginning of his recruitment drive. It will be interesting to see how Georgia approaches his recruitment and if they explore the possibility of getting two quarterbacks in the class.
