Scouting Report: Haskell Garrett – 2017 Defensive Tackle

It’s no fluke that Bishop Gorman has emerged as possibly the top high school football program in America over the last couple of seasons. It’s a program with a history of producing talent, but now that talent is even greater than before with studs coming from California and Hawaii to play for the G.

Haskell Garrett is one of those prospects who came from Hawaii and moved to Las Vegas to attend Gorman. It’s been a beneficial move for him as he is already a top prospect and has been able to show he has a bright future as an interior defensive lineman against the top competition Gorman plays every year.

Scouting Report: Michael Divinity – 2016 Linebacker

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.

Scouting Report: Bryce Youngquist – 2016 Linebacker

I’m a big believer in college football programs finding players who fit their scheme in recruiting. Some players can play in just about any scheme and be successful, but others have to be asked to do only specific things in order to truly maximize their potential.

There is still time for this to chance, but the player I see right now in linebacker Bryce Youngquist can be great if he is asked to do certain things, but would struggle if asked to do other things he may not be as comfortable with. If utilized properly at the next level, Youngquist has the athleticism to be an impact player at linebacker.

Scouting Report: Brady Breeze – 2016 Safety

Any time anyone is looking at football recruits, floors and ceilings are always discussed. It’s not just about how good a player can be, but also what a player is now and definitely will be.

With Oregon safety commit Brady Breeze, it’s all about his floor. The things he does well right now will allow him to at the very least be a solid player at the next level even if he might not have the same ceiling as some other defensive backs.

Scouting Report: Vavae Malepeai – 2016 Running Back

Skill players from the state of Hawaii never get the benefit of the doubt, even though they have produced a fair number of great ones at the college level.

Vavae Malepeai had to go out and earn respect in the camp circuit and did so by earning an invite to The Opening Finals and then performing well there. He deserves to be mentioned with the top backs in the nation and has all of the tools to be another outstanding running back at the University of Oregon.

Scouting Report: Elysee Mbem-Bosse – 2016 Linebacker

Thank goodness that Google remembers previous searches because remembering how to properly spell the name Elysee Mbem-Bosse is not an easy task. It’s about as easy as a fullback trying to run iso at Mbem-Bosse. (It’s difficult.)

Mbem-Bosse is a throwback, physical inside linebacker that plays downhill. He has the tools to be an outstanding run defender 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: Camilo Eifler – 2016 Linebacker

Versatility is the most valuable trait to have as a defender these days because the offenses that college football defensive coordinators have to prepare for every week can be so multiple. One week it’s the triple option. The week after it’s the Air Raid.

That’s why a player like Camilo Eifler is a prospect that has the attention of so many schools. He can drop and cover a tight end on one play and rush off the edge the very next. He can do so many things well and is one of the top outside linebacker prospects in the nation this cycle.

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: Antwuan Jackson – 2016 Defensive Tackle

There never seems to be a shortage of big bodies to recruit at defensive tackle, but the ones who have the potential to be special pass rushers are few and far between.

That’s why Antwuan Jackson is such a highly recruited prospect with offers from all over the country. He could end up being an extremely disruptive player that can really push the pocket at the next level.
