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: 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: Byron Murphy – 2016 Cornerback

Arizona and Arizona State both appear to be on the rise in college football, but so far that rise on the field has not translated to them keeping all of the top in-state targets home. This year they are going to be in tough to land another great player from Scottsdale, Arizona as Saguaro cornerback Byron Murphy does not appear to have either near the top of his list.

I’m sure they will be working hard to somehow change that though, because Murphy is one of the top cornerbacks out west and may end up being rated as one of the top cornerbacks in the nation before the recruiting process is completed for the class of 2016.

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 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: Devin Asiasi – 2016 Tight End

I’m not sure why more recruiting people aren’t talking about Devin Asiasi.

Perhaps it’s because he is just a part in what is a powerhouse high school football program in De La Salle where there emphasize team over everything else. Maybe it’s because of the position he plays. Tight ends rarely receive high rankings and several teams don’t even have a true tight end in their offensive scheme.

Whatever the reason is, throw it out. More people need to be talking about Asiasi. He’s one of the top prospects in the nation and could be listed as a blue chip recruit on both sides of the football.

Scouting Report: Devin White – 2016 Athlete

You just need to see Devin White with the ball in his hands running away from a defensive back who has the angle on him to know that he is a special athlete.

How that athleticism at his size is going to fit at the next level is yet to be determined, but the running back/linebacker from North Webster High in Springhill, Louisiana is going to find a fit somewhere on the field for a big time college football program.

Scouting Report: Curtis Robinson – 2016 Linebacker

For many years now, any kind of base defense in football has involved a front of seven defenders. That is still the case for the most part, although nickel defenses are more prevalent than ever.

A lot of defensive coordinators are looking for the best of both worlds. That means nickel linebackers. That is exactly what Mater Dei’s Curtis Robinson is: an out of the box linebacker that is athletic enough to never leave the field.

Scouting Report: Krys Barnes – 2016 Linebacker

Kyrs Barnes has become one of the fastest rising linebacker prospects on the west coast and parlayed his season as a junior and a great performance at The Opening regionals in LA to an invitation to The Opening finals in July.

He has an old school physical mentality to playing the linebacker position and is a fun player to watch on film.
