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.

When it comes to physical gifts, there aren’t many that compare to IMG Academy’s Johsua Kaindoh. He looks like he was sculpted to be the prototype defensive end in the NFL.
Everyone knows his high school team is loaded with talent, but there may not be a prospect on that team with the same kind of ceiling that Kaindoh has. He has special talent and has all of the tools to become a dominating player at the college level.

To a lot of college football fans, Jean Delance is the recruit who de-committed from Oklahoma after the horrible racist incident involving a fraternity. In a couple of years they very well could all know him as one of the top offensive tackles in the nation.
He is a terrific athlete and is someone who is likely going to become an elite player at a school like Ohio State, Michigan, Alabama, Texas, or Texas A&M.

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.

Justin Madubuike is listed as a defensive end just about everywhere. And he probably would be one at the next level if he were playing at a college this fall.
He’s not, though. He’s only going to be a senior in high school this season and even if he kicks outside to play this season (he lined up inside as a junior), I think he is likely to grow into an interior player and a very good one at that.

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.

With most players there is an “if” attached to them as to whether or not they are actually going to become great at the next level. With Ohio State commit Jonathon Cooper as a pass rusher, it’s more of a “when”.
Everything I see from him shows me he can develop into a double digit sack guy at the college level and he is still scratching the surface as to how good he can be.

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.

Scheme fit is a constant point of emphasis to me when it comes to evaluating recruits. One prospect may be an All-American caliber of player in one scheme and he may be someone who isn’t suited to start in another.
JoeJuan Williams is someone who can fit in multiple schemes, but at different positions. He can play corner, but likely only in a defense that asks him to play a lot of press. He could be free safety in one that doesn’t. He’ll find the right fit for him and he has the potential to be a great player in the secondary for some lucky college football program.
