Scouting Report: Jamyest Williams – 2017 Cornerback

Sometimes it’s not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.

All I know is that Jamyest Williams has a lot of dog in him as a football player. This kid can ball against anyone at any size. It’s not just that he is a great athlete that has the top schools in the country after him. It’s the compete level that makes him one of the top recruits in the nation that could excel on either side of the football at the next level.

Scouting Report: Antjuan Simmons – 2017 Linebacker

Sometimes you watch a prospects tape and a few plays in, you feel like you’ve seen enough.

That can be a good or bad thing, but with Antjuan Simmons it’s a very good thing. It’s easy to see why so many programs have already offered him and why he is being pursued by college football coaches from around the country. He has wow physical traits that show out in his play on the field and it’s going to be exciting to watch his development during his senior year and beyond.

Scouting Report: Marquez Callaway – 2016 Athlete

I watched Marquez Callaway‘s junior film and I was a little underwhelmed to be perfectly honest. He certainly looked like a very good prospect, but I was hoping for a bit more.

His sophomore film is a different story. He made a ton of plays and part of the reason was the position he primarily played that season. He is an athlete to projects well to multiple positions, but one in particular really stands out for him to have the highest ceiling.

Scouting Report: Chase Claypool – 2016 Athlete

A couple of months ago, not many college football fans that follow recruiting had heard of Chase Claypool. Heck, not many college football coaches had heard of him either.

He has gone from unknown to possibly the top prospect out of Canada in a short amount of time and it’s easy to see why. He is an impressive physical specimen at his age and could project at several positions at the next level.

Scouting Report: Mecole Hardman – 2016 Athlete

You don’t see too many two-way players at the college level anymore, but it’s still something that is prevalent at the high school level. Sometimes players are so good that they can genuinely project to being a great college football player on either side of the ball.

That’s how it is with Mecole Hardman. Wide receiver and defensive back coaches are going to be fighting over who gets him when he arrives on a college campus as a freshman. He has the athletic talent to be an All-American level caliber on either side of the football once he focuses on one position.

Scouting Report: Jordan Fuller – 2016 Athlete

Every coach wants players that are technically sound, but I like players who play multiple positions more than just one even if that player isn’t as polished as some others. Most of the time that just means the upside can be that much greater once the right position is chosen for them at the next level.

Old Tappan High athlete Jordan Fuller is capable of playing multiple positions at the next level, but I believe his greatest upside is on the defensive side of the ball. I think he has a very bright future as a safety, but time will tell if that is position he ultimately ends up sticking at in college.

Scouting Report: David Long – 2016 Cornerback

It’s not anything new that most players are a lot shorter in real life than what is listed in the game program. It shouldn’t be too surprising to anyone that Loyola (CA) cornerback David Long wasn’t as tall as he was originally listed.

Long’s elite athletic traits more than make up for the couple of inches, though. He’s a fantastic prospect that is outstanding in man coverage no matter how tall he actually is

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: 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: Dylan Moses – 2017 Linebacker

Dylan Moses is a name I’ve been hearing in recruiting for a couple of years now and he hasn’t even finished his sophomore year yet.

The hype surrounding the LSU commit has been crazy, but he has absolutely lived up to it as the current top player in the 2017 recruiting cycle and the first 2017 player to receive an invite to The Opening finals this summer.
