WR | 6-2.5 / 190
Henry County (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 149
Pos Rank: 24
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Alabama, California, LSU, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Ambles is the complete package at wide receiver. At 6-2, 190 pounds, he has the size to dominate the smaller corners. He also runs crisp routes and gets in and out of his breaks very well. At times he will lose focus and drop the easy pass while he makes all the impossible catches look easy. Ambles can be that underneath, over the middle, or deep threat on the next level. He is that talented. - Chad Simmons - South Region Analyst
S | 6-1 / 195
Lakewood (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 29
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 7/16/09
Committed Over: Colorado, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA, Washington
Scouting Report: A ballhawk who's an excellent coverage safety but can play close to the line and get into the backfield.
RB | 6-0 / 205
Mission Bay Senior (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 5
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 9/8/08
Committed Over: Florida, Michigan, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA
Scouting Report: Watching Baxter run, he has the fluidity of a cornerback in how he jumps in and out of his cuts. His ability in the open field make him ideal with the ball in his hands as a slot receiver. He has tremendous acceleration and balance when he's running the ball, and his experience from the shotgun set at quarterback has helped hone his vision and patience to set up his blocks. Must learn to protect the ball better in traffic, Scott Kennedy-Scout.com
CB | 6-11 / 180
Henry J. Kaiser (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 57
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 7/10/09
Committed Over: Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada, UCLA, UTEP, Washington
Scouting Report: More a running back than a cornerback, Brown has good athleticism and closing speed, making the switch to corner seamless. Has good, quick hands and ball skills.
C | 6-4 / 254
St. Bonaventure (CA)
Rating:
Scout300: 249
Pos Rank: 4
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 7/31/09
Committed Over: Arizona, Arizona State, Notre Dame, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, Washington
Scouting Report: At 6-4 and 255 pounds, Di Poalo plays the offensive tackle position with the athleticism of a defensive end. He is quick off the snap, uses his hands well, and maintains leverage in his blocks. He drive blocks and pass blocks equally well. A high motor tackle, Di Poalo easily gets to the second level, and it's common to see him following a play 40 yards down the field. Age and experience will add good weight to his frame. Scott Kennedy, Scout.com
TE | 6-5 / 245
Bishop Gorman (NV)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 1
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 4/23/09
Committed Over: California, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma, UCLA
Scouting Report: The premier, all-around tight end in the country, Grimble can block like a tackle and catch and run like a receiver.
OT | 7-8 / 338
Cretin Derham Hall (MN)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 1
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Florida, Iowa, Miami, Michigan, Minnesota, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, UCLA
Scouting Report: Perfect symmetry in pass pro, feet are shoulder width apart. Hands on thigh pads, elbows bent, not over extending past shoulders. Perfect kick step to the slide. Upper body vertical with knees bent and feet moving. Places his hands up to chest level ready to deliver a punch. His butt is down and his back is about as flat as you could expect from a 6-foot-8 man. Bob Lichtenfels-Scout.com
DE | 6-4 / 235
College of the Canyons (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 7/8/09
Committed Over: Arizona State, Kentucky, LSU, Minnesota, Oregon, UCLA, Washington
Scouting Report: Was one of the premier pass-rushers in the JC ranks. Ridiculously fast off the ball, and a great nose for the quarterback.
RB | 6-11 / 170
William Howard Taft (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 9
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 9/17/08
Committed Over: Arizona State, California, Florida, Oregon, Stanford, Washington
Scouting Report: One of the elite track runners in the country, Morgan is often compared to Bush, his childhood idol. Excels with the ball in his hands, either carrying the ball, returning kicks, running the ball. Tore his ACL this fall, but if he comes back, should be a bigtime playmaker.
WR | 6-5 / 205
Proviso West (IL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 2
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 9/2/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Auburn, Illinois, Miami (Fl), Michigan, Missouri, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Has great size, outstanding hands and ball skills and concentration. Has the speed to separate from some of the country's top corners and get himself behind the secondary. His route running is fairly developed and he understands how to set up would-be cornerbacks. He has decent run after the catch ability, but that is not his strong suit. -- Allen Trieu
MLB | 6-2 / 220
Crenshaw Senior (CA)
Rating:
Scout300: 172
Pos Rank: 6
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 2/2/10
Committed Over: Arizona State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon, UCLA, Washington
Scouting Report: A big hitter, one of the best sideline-to-sideline backers around. Also a big play threat with the ball in his hands as a running back. Schools like him on both sides but his future is best suited for defense. Had a down senior year, but helped team to state title game.
CB | 6-7 / 165
Frostproof (FL)
Rating:
Scout300: 238
Pos Rank: 18
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 7/21/09
Committed Over: Tennessee, USC, West Virginia, South Florida
Scouting Report: Robey is one of the fastest corners in the South and he has great closing speed, he has great ball skills, and he is always a threat to make a play when the ball is in his hands. He does not get tested a lot in high school and he plays multiple positions, so he will need to fine tune his corner skills on the next level. He is a hard-nosed football player that plays with no fear and a lot of speed. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons
QB | 6-2.5 / 200
Lakewood (CA)
Rating:
Scout300: 107
Pos Rank: 6
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 7/23/09
Committed Over: Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, Tennessee, Washington, Washington State
Scouting Report: It's more than a big arm and quick release that make Scroggins such a coveted prospect. His poise and leadership were evident throughout the game against Edison, and he even shows he can run when he needs to
OG | 7-8 / 365
Westchester Senior (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 92
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 4/13/09
Scouting Report: Smith has a good first step and is able to dictate the action on the offensive line, rather than try to react to it on the defensive side of the ball. He has quick hands and is able to slap a rushing defensive end that tries to rip or swim by him. His quick hands allow him to push a quicker defender off stride in pass protection. He gets a tremendous push when he gets his arms extended and his hands squared on an opponent: Scott Kennedy
OLB | 6-2 / 235
Eastern Arizona (AZ)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Scouting Report: Arizona State, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, South Florida, Tennessee, UCF, Utah
TE | 6-4 / 223
Rancho Cucamonga (CA)
Rating:
Scout300: 112
Pos Rank: 5
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 4/1/09
Committed Over: Arizona State, Oregon, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA, Washington
Scouting Report: The best example of watching Telfer, the football player and not just Telfer the prospect, is his blocking ability. Players new to the game are rarely as good a blocker as Telfer. He uses his hands well, extends his arms, uses great leverage and keeps his feet moving to generate the angle to best move his defender in the direction Telfer wants him to go.
TE | 6-3 / 245
Highland (CA)
Rating:
Scout300: 179
Pos Rank: 8
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: California, Florida State, Miami (Fl), Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, Washington
Scouting Report: Thomas explodes off the line and is extremely physical. More than one linebacker bumped the back of his head on the grass after trying to check Thomas. He has solid hands in and out of traffic, and he elevates like a wide receiver rather than a tight end pushing 250 pounds. Thomas isn't a towering target at 6-2/6-3, but he's much stronger than longer, leaner tight ends and able to get separation with his burst and power - Scott Kennedy.
DT | 6-4 / 297
Don Antonio Lugo (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 3
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 12/25/09
Committed Over: California, LSU, Miami (Fl), Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA
Scouting Report: A prototype interior line prospect, Uko is quick off the ball and powerful at the point of attack. He's physically dominant in nearly every aspect of the game as he plays with great strength and leverage. He needs to play every down, but when he's motivated, he can do it all. Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.
WR | 6-2 / 185
Junipero Serra (CA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 1
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 8/19/09
Committed Over: California, Oklahoma, Oregon, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA
Scouting Report: Woods is the type of athlete that makes everything look easy. He doesn't look like he's running that hard, but he's gliding by everyone. He adjusts well to the ball in the air and makes hard catches look easy. He has soft, but strong hands that can catch a pass over the shoulder, or snag a pass out of mid-air that's thrown on a rope. While he has terrific straight line speed, he's also adept at getting excellent separation. -- Scott Kennedy
CB | 6-1 / 195
Corona Senior (CA)
Rating:
Scout300: 269
Pos Rank: 21
Committed to: USC
Commit Date: 1/9/10
Committed Over: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Oklahoma, Tennessee, UCLA, Washington
Scouting Report: Most physical corner in the region, can lock down and jams at the LOS. Could grow into a safety. Good size for a corner.
