Scouting Report: Isaac Garcia – 2016 Edge Player

The state of Washington never gets enough credit for the talent they produce every year in recruiting and Bellevue tends to be a big part of that talent on a regular basis. It’s consistently one of the top high school football programs in the nation and has the FBS recruits every year to further prove it.

Isaac Garcia is one of the top players from the state and from Bellevue in this cycle and has already committed to USC. They project him on defense and he shows the signs of being a very good run defender at the next level.

Scouting Report: Darian Owens – 2016 Athlete

USC had tremendous previous week in recruiting, but they still don’t have the top ranked class in the Pac-12 as of right now. That’s because UCLA had another good week with a commitment from Clovis West (Fresno, California) athlete Darian Owens.

Owens could end up being another weapon for Josh Rosen to get the ball to for the Bruins, but he easily could end up covering receivers on the other side of the ball as well.

Scouting Report: Nathan Smith – 2016 Offensive Tackle

There is mean, then there is “knock you down on your butt three times and never give you a chance to get up” kind of mean. That’s the kind of mean Nathan Smith displays as a run blocker.

That’s why Smith is considered one of the top offensive lineman in California. He could end up being a dominating run blocker in the Pac-12 for USC and plays with the kind of effort and intensity that should be contagious to the rest of his teammates on the offensive line.

Scouting Report: Melquise Stovall – 2016 Athlete

Small backs like Melquise Stovall always get stereotyped as finesse players who excel out in space rather than in tight quarters. Stovall has speed and lateral agility to be awesome when out in space, but it’s his ability as an inside runner that smashes the stereotype that is put on small running backs.

He packs power to go with great feet and vision that help him excel wherever he is handed or catches the football. He’s one of the most exciting prospects to watch on the west coast in this recruiting class and another great pickup for USC.

Scouting Report: Luke Wattenberg – 2016 Offensive Tackle

There is a familiar look to a lot of top high school offensive linemen highlight films. So many of them can pretty much dominate with size and strength alone and it’s them down blocking smaller players into oblivion on repeat far too often.

It’s the truly athletic offensive linemen that get me excited about their potential at the next level though. That’s why I’m really excited about Washington offensive tackle commit Luke Wattenberg and what his future entails with the Huskies. He has the athletic tools to develop into an elite left tackle in the Pac-12.

Scouting Report: Frank Martin – 2016 Offensive Tackle

Mater Dei sends a bunch of players to play football at the college level every year and not all of them go to USC. For some reason though, Mater Dei offensive lineman Frank Martin committing to USC just seemed like it was going to be a fit all along. Martin has long been considered one of the top offensive line prospects on the west coast for this cycle and USC tends to win a lot of those battles for the best players in their backyard.

He’s got great raw tools to work and is a great addition to USC’s offensive line class in 2016.

Scouting Report: Cameron Brown – 2016 Linebacker

There is never going to be a lack of athletes that run well and hit hard. There’s a lot more than that though that goes into being a good linebacker.

Cameron Brown is definitely a great athlete, but it’s the instincts he shows at linebacker to go along with the physical skills that make me excited about his long term potential playing the position at the next level.

Scouting Repot: Devon Modster – 2016 Quarterback

I like quarterbacks who are the second quarterback commitment for a team in a recruiting class. It shows they embrace competition.

There is going to be a heck of a quarterback competition down the line at Arizona after Anu Solomon leaves and players like Khalil Tate and Devon Modster battle to be the starter. Rich Rod is getting another very good quarterback to work with after Modster committed to the Wildcats today.

Scouting Report: Jarrett Guarantano – 2016 Quarterback

Tennessee is trying to return to glory in the world of college football and Butch Jones has them going in a good direction with the talent they have brought in with the Vols last few recruiting classes.

They landed two good quarterback prospects in the 2015 recruiting cycle and they just landed an even better one in their 2016 class with a commitment from Bergen Catholic (New Jersey) quarterback Jarrett Gurantano. He might have the best natural arm strength out of any quarterback in his class and has the chance to develop into a heck of a player in the SEC East.

Scouting Report: Cary Angeline – 2016 Tight End

In a different time, Downington East tight end Cary Angeline would have probably been projected as an undersized power forward playing college basketball at some mid-major somewhere.

But in today’s world, he is the kind of coveted tight end prospect that doesn’t come along very often. A long athlete with a big frame and great hands all equal to one of the top tight end prospects in the nation for the 2016 class.
