Recruiting Spotlight: 4-star 2020 DE Tonka Hemingway hits like a truck

While the 2018 recruiting class is yet to be finalized, schools are already doing work on the recruiting trail for underclassmen. One common stop is Conway, S.C., where 2020 defensive end Tonka Hemingway terrorizes offenses.

Hemingway, only a sophomore, is already 6-foot-2, 250-pounds, and he’s rated as a 4-star by 247Sports. He isn’t the first highly regarded recruit in his family, either, as his older brother, Junior Hemingway, played college football at Michigan before being drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2012 NFL Draft.

The younger Hemingway, however, is the bigger Hemingway, already outweighing his older brother by nearly 50 pounds at the same height. And, only a sophomore, Tonka Hemingway probably has some growing left to do.

His first offer came from South Carolina last spring, and since he’s garnered verbal offers from Clemson, Maryland and North Carolina. He’s also receiving interest from Georgia and Michigan.

His offer list will surely grow, as Hemingway is already ranked as the No. 1-player in the state for 2020, and the No. 31-player nationally. See why colleges are already in hot pursuit of Hemingway in his sophomore year highlights.
