Clemson’s five-star quarterback commit returned to action this week – and he didn’t disappoint – in leading Cartersville (Ga.) to a 41-7 win in a battle of unbeatens.

Kendrick is completing 71.2 percent of his throws with 11 passing touchdowns (16 total scores).

Xavier Thomas – 5-star DE; Mike Jones Jr. – 4-star OLB IMG Academy (Fla.)

Playing their first game since Sept. 2 due to weather cancellations, IMG Academy returned to the gridiron in a battle of strong Florida programs.

Going into the game, Thomas had registered 12 tackles (two for loss) and a sack, while Jones Jr. had 11 stops and four for loss (IMG hasn’t updated stats through three games).

Kyler McMichael – 4-star Greater Atlanta Christian CB

McMichael continued a strong senior campaign in the backfield with three touchdowns – including a 62-yarder – in a 47-7 win over Union County (Ga.). He’s up to seven rushing scores through five games in a 4-1 start for the No. 3-ranked Spartans.
