So in a way to better understand the use of Deep Dish Football for Illinois recruits and the whole entire IHSA Football scene. Decided to do player profiles of players who you might not know or you might know , but you should respect them for their roles on their respective teams.
Giancarlo Volpentesta Class Of 2019 WR Highland Park 6'1 180
COACH BIG PETE'S TAKE
Giancarlo is something that shocks me, after taking a second look at his game film. Really impressed with his routes and ability to separate himself from defensive backs. What is key to me and what college coaches would like to see is his blocking technique. Volpentesta is on my riser list for this late Spring and early Summer, watch out for him.
