Piedmont WRs make commitments

A pair of Piedmont High wide receivers have both made their college commitments. Joey Andrada, a 6-0, 195-pounder who was a first-team All-Bay Shore Athletic League selection, will play at Columbia. David Black, a 6-5, 200-pound second team All-BSAL pick, will play at Sacramento State.

“We’re pretty excited for all of the guys at Piedmont,” Highlanders coach Kurt Bryan said.

It’s expected that quarterback Cormac Craigie will also soon announce his college commitment.

Andrada was a three-year starter for Piedmont who finished his career with 100 catches for 2,036 yards and 24 touchdowns and was the team’s leading receiver each of the past three years.

Black, also a star basketball player for the Highlanders, exploded onto the scene this year with 27 catches for 460 yards and four touchdowns and Craigie’s No. 2 option in Piedmont’s wide-open A-11 attack.

“Playing in this super spread out offense, scouts can see them in 1-on-1 matchups,” Bryan said.

  • scout

    So no St.MArys Players have any scholar ships but these cats do

  • have you scene D. Black in person? kids 6′-5″ 200 and isn’t even close to his prime. Sac state is lucky to get this kid. He’s Pac 10 material

    Those two WR are good players. They were probably the best two in the BSAL behind Lovett. And these dudes have the height you look for with good speed. Congrats to both young men.

  • Can’t speak for Andrada but Black is a much better prospect then any player on St. Mary’s team. Not better player but better prospect. Tall 6’5″ lanky great speed 4.6-4.5 & unfortunately thats what these colleges want. A great athlete with a big upside that they can mold into a good player. Don’t know at all but low grades could have been issues with Lovett. He’s a pretty good ball player.
