Offensive tackle Sullivan Weidman is a top target for the Eagles in the Class of 2022
Jeff Hafley and his staff have done a tremendous job of securing commitments from several high profile three star recruits for the class for the Class of 2021. Despite that however, they have still struggled to establish themselves in New England.
The Eagles coaching staff is hoping to change that by focusing on the Class of 2022. Hafley and his staff offered a number of local recruits scholarships last week in the hope of getting their commitment when they decide.
It is a smart move because it buys Hafley and his staff time to develop relationships with the coaches in Massachusetts and New England. By cultivating those relationships, they can earn the trust of the players and the coaches the region.
The Eagles offered the following players in the Class of 2022 scholarships last week.
Matt Ragan, TE, Lawrence Academy: The brother of former Eagles offensive lineman Sean Ragan has good size, athletic ability and he pops on film as a receiver and blocker.
