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.

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.

Shared DNA doesn’t always equal to shared athleticism for brothers, but it sharing DNA seems to mean something when it comes to college football. Stephon Diggs was at one time a top recruit and later a star at Maryland before moving on to the NFL. Now it’s his brother Trevon Diggs who is the top recruit.
Time will tell if he follows in his brothers footsteps and becomes a Terrapin, but he has plenty of other top schools like Alabama, Penn State, LSU, and Tennessee that would be happy if he decided to forge his own path someplace else.

There are a lot of running backs where it’s said that they can do it all. With Miles Sanders, there is nothing hyperbolic about that statement.
He is great at just about everything he does and should be an outstanding player for Penn State in the Big Ten as soon as he gets his first carry as a freshman.

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.

Naseir Upshur is a great example of not judging a book by his cover. I think he shows good ability as a receiver, but he really stands out as a blocker.
He gets after it and has the potential to be a complete tight end at the next level.

I’ve said it before and I have to say it again after watching film of Ikenna Okeke: safeties are incredibly hard to evaluate. There just isn’t enough film to evaluate of most of them due and most of the time they are strictly coming downhill so it’s tough to evaluate how they match up athletically in terms of opening up their hips and running.
Okeke has some really nice traits that make him someone with a high ceiling, though. That’s why schools like Stanford, Penn State, Tennessee, and Notre Dame have all offered him along with many other programs.

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.

It’s amazing that so many of the talented edge rusher prospects that are great athletes are also slow reacting off the football. They are fast runners, but don’t react like they should when the ball is snap.
Antonneous Clayton is one of the exceptions. He’s a great athlete for the position and gets off the football like gangbusters. He has offers from some of the top schools in the nation and could end up being the best pass rusher to emerge from the 2016 recruiting class.
