Bone's Best: Top weekend prospects
Kwon Alexander (Oxford, linebacker): Alexander knows how to turn it on when he is needed. He didn't make much of an impact in the first half of the game, but took over the game especially in the third quarter. He sometimes will over pursue plays because he is so fast coming off the ball, but did a great job chasing down players from behind. He is physical and delivered big hits throughout the game.
Trae Elston (Oxford, wide receiver/safety): Elston demonstrated his speed several times in the game, but Oxford's quarterback struggled to get him the ball. Elston was wide open on several routes and blew past defenders. He had a few catches on offense including a big gainer streaking down the right side of the field.
B.J. Hammond (Gadsden City, wide receiver, 2013): Hammond is a big target at 6-foot-4 and more than 200-pounds. He had several receptions and Gadsden City's only touchdown in regulation. Hammond is a good possession receiver. He has a big frame and a good downfield blocker.
Devin Gordon (Gadsden City, offensive tackle): Gordon played left tackle for the Titans Friday night. He did a great job sealing off his man and did a good job picking up the blitz. Gordon was able to win the battle once he put his hands on his man. He did a good job stopping Kwon Alexander a few times when the five-star came rushing on the edge.
Cameron Toney (Huntsville, linebacker, 2013): Toney made his presence felt the entire night. He had double-digit tackles in his team's win against Decatur. He is very good running sideline-to-sideline, reads plays well and aggressive. He is one of the top in-state recruits for next year's class.
Josh Matthews (Decatur, running back, 2013) Matthews didn't play the first week of the season due to a hamstring injury. He played in Thursday night's game, but you could tell he was still not 100-percent. The Huntsville defense did a great job stopping the run keying in on Matthews. He is a short, stocky back. He runs with a lot of power and at his best when running between the tackles.
Azaria Green (Huntsville, running back): Green is big ball carrier at 6-foot-2, 210-pounds, and he had a big night against Decatur. Green rushed for close to 160 yards. He is a very good athlete with size, speed and quickness. Green should have several college options as the season progresses.
Grant Hill (Huntsville, offensive lineman, 2013) Hill was an unknown prospect, but Huntsville head coach Scott Sharp said before the game the 6-foot-5, 325-pound lineman is his "best prospect." Hill rotated between left and right tackle throughout the night. He is very athletic for his size. He can run and is physical at the point of attack. He needs to do a better job at finishing blocks and playing through the whistle. Hill is a great offensive line prospect for next year's class and should attract a lot of attention.
Injury Note: Michael Flint, Oxford offensive lineman, did not play Friday night.
