CLASS OF 2017 GUAM RECRUITING CLASS

GSPN’s Michael Cruz takes a dive into a handful of Guam’s 2017 college freshman as they ready to take their talents to different levels of college football.

By Michael Cruz

A total of eight players from the IFL are heading to play college football. This might be the most in Guam prep history. Each one of these players played it least one year in the league on Guam. Despite a small league of only 8 teams and a population of under 200,000, Guam is making strides. I think one day Guam will see every school represented in college football.

Juan King

The Guam High product has been a playmaker since his youth football days. His senior year was memorable making 1st team running back. He played both sides of the ball. King is the 2nd player (his brother Jujuan was the 1st) to play college football from the island of Tinian. He will play for NAIA program Culver Stockton.

Solomon White

White finished up his senior at Guam High as the Island’s best dual threat QB in 2016. He was the only senior player to score on FD’s shutdown defense in 2016. White will attend the Air Force Prep school. Their program plays a Junior College schedule and other Prep Academies. The long term goal is to walk-on to the Air Force Academy football team and start.

Cameron Callaway

Callaway was an all-island lineman as a sophomore and junior at Southern. He transferred to North Carolina with his mom to chase his college football dreams. A late offer from D2 UNC Pembroke changed his plans from enlisting in the Army. He showed versatility on offensive and defensive line.
