Scouting Report: Isaiah Chambers – 2016 Defensive End

Projecting a star high school player to have big time success is always going to be inexact because of the level of competition a player faces is always drastically less than what they are going to experience when playing at the college level. That’s why Isaiah Chambers is someone who is going to be so interesting to watch develop.

He has awesome physical tools, but he so overwhelms the offensive linemen he goes up against that he isn’t challenged very often. He’ll see new challenges at the next level, but he has everything you could ask for in a defensive end to overcome those challenges.

Scouting Report: A.J. Brown – 2016 Wide Receiver

Mississippi never gets a ton of credit for the talent that comes out of the state every year, but once again there is some high level talent that can be difference makers at the college level. Included in that group this year are two big time wide receivers, Dekaylin Metcalf and A.J. Brown.

Like Metcalf, Brown is a big target on the outside. He is built like a linebacker and is going to be a difficult player for any defensive back to tackle after he gets the ball in his hands.

Scouting Report: Jeffery Simmons – 2016 Defensive End

Jeffery Simmons is what the SEC is all about and he doesn’t even play in the SEC yet. He will, though, and he will make an impact.

He is a big, fast, and violent football player that has the chance to be an all-conference player at Ole Miss, Mississippi State, LSU, Alabama, or Auburn. Bigger, faster, stronger is what the conference is all about and they’ll be adding another prospect who epitomizes that next fall.

Scouting Report: Jordan Elliott – 2016 Defensive Tackle

When Tom Herman added Ed Oliver as a defensive tackle commitment, it opened a lot of eyes to what he and his staff could do at the University of Houston. When they added a commitment from another stud defensive tackle in Jordan Elliott, it showed that what they were doing was no fluke.

It’s going to be a battle to keep Elliott in the fold with programs like LSU, Texas, and USC all still in pursuit of him. If the Cougars can hold onto Elliott and Oliver, they are going to have a potentially dynamic and disruptive duo in the middle of their defense.

Scouting Report: Trevon Diggs – 2016 Wide Receiver

Shared DNA doesn’t always equal to shared athleticism for brothers, but it sharing DNA seems to mean something when it comes to college football. Stephon Diggs was at one time a top recruit and later a star at Maryland before moving on to the NFL. Now it’s his brother Trevon Diggs who is the top recruit.

Time will tell if he follows in his brothers footsteps and becomes a Terrapin, but he has plenty of other top schools like Alabama, Penn State, LSU, and Tennessee that would be happy if he decided to forge his own path someplace else.

Scouting Report: Terrance Davis – 2016 Guard

Bigger guys beat up smaller guys. It’s not an ancient Chinese proverb, but it’s made sense since the dawn of time. So if you’re looking for a reason why Terrance Davis is a coveted offensive line recruit, look no further than how big he is right now.

He has the size to be a bully in the run game and schools like Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, and Michigan would love for him to be their bully the next four years or so.

Scouting Report: Landon Dickerson – 2016 Offensive Tackle

Versatility is something that is often said about offensive linemen, but any offensive lineman that can be described that way brings a ton of value to a college football program.

That’s exactly how I would describe Landon Dickerson. He is a swing candidate on the offensive line that could actually project to play all five position on the offensive line at the next level.

Scouting Report: Michael Divinity – 2016 Linebacker

There is always going to be a premium on players that can rush the passer and that is the greatest strength for one of the top outside linebacker recruits in the nation, Michael Divinity.

His 40 time might not be blazing, but his film says SEC speed to me and he is a coveted prospect by several of the top programs in the top conference in college football.

Scouting Report: Terrell Hall – 2016 Defensive End

The way recruiting goes these days, elite defensive line prospects don’t just pop onto a program’s radar out of the blue at this point in the process. The only way it happens is if a player de-commits.

That’s how a player like Terrell Hall can all of a sudden become an option for teams like Alabama, Penn State, and Notre Dame at the beginning of August. Ohio State’s loss should end up being another program’s gain with a physically gifted defensive end like Hall.
