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.

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.

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.

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.

On the first day of The Opening, I saw Kyle Davis and I thought he was a linebacker. I did a double take when I checked the roster and realized that it was a him and he was a receiver.
Davis looks like Tarzan and plays like Tarzan’s older brother. He dominated The Opening and was named the MVP of it for a reason. All it did was back up what was already there on film. He’s the best receiver in the nation.

Sometimes in recruiting, the physical tools outweigh the skills that a prospect shows on the field. That is the case with Georgia commit Chauncey Manac. He is built like a player who is ready to play college football now, but his potential far outweighs what kind of player he is currently.
He could end up being a great one in the SEC East if he puts it all together while in Athens.

True free safety prospects are hard to find in recruiting. That’s what makes Nigel Warrior such a special prospect. The Peachtree Ridge (Georgia) product shows the skills to be an excellent center fielder and that’s why he such a high priority recruit for the top programs in the SEC and other national powers.

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.

There is projection with every recruit, but some a lot more than others. Linebacker Aaron Hansford is a prospect where projection is everything.
I don’t need to see him at a camp to know he is a great athlete and looks like he can be the prototype outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense. With limited film, though, I also can’t see a lot of things he can do well now with the pads on either. Even without the film, he athletically projects in the upper tier at his position for the next level and that’s why schools like Ohio State, Penn State, and Notre Dame have all offered him a scholarship.

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.
