Scouting: Mainland

Mainland defeated Jones by the score of 28-12 in week two of the regular season. There were a number of Division 1 prospects on the field and Scout was there to capture all the action.

Mainland might not be as talented as they've been in recent years but they still have about a half dozen players who are legitimate Division 1 prospects. The top prospect on the field was four-star defensive end Leonard Williams. We will have a separate scouting report/game clips/photo gallery story on him.

Mainland has at least four other seniors who are getting Division 1 looks -- quarterback Shelton Willis, running back Mookie Lee, linebacker Jarvis Mott, and safety Deonte Wilson.

On this night, Lee was clearly the most impressive of that group. At 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, Lee split time with Tennessee running back Marlin Lane last season but still put up quality production numbers. Now that he's the main guy this season, he's expected to run wild on opposing defenses and that's exactly what he did on a good Jones defense in this one. He finished the game with 210 yards rushing, 59 receiving, and three total touchdowns. He has very good instincts, good short-area quickness, he shows the ability to break tackles and move piles, and he's athletic enough to be a big factor in the passing game. He is still waiting for his first Division 1 scholarship offer and with performances like this, that shouldn't be too far off. From a physical talent standpoint, he looks like a BCS caliber prospect.

Mott plays middle linebacker and although he's a bit undersized (6-0/200), he's always around the ball and he makes plays. He has good instincts, he runs pretty well, and is the leader of a talented Mainland defense. He will likely get some Division 1 looks as the season progresses.

Wilson (6-0/180) plays safety and even some as Lee's backup at running back. He has some athleticism, good ball skills, and can be used in a variety of ways. Like Mott, expect him to generate some Division 1 buzz throughout the season.

Willis (6-3/180) is an athletic quarterback with a live arm but he's still developing as a player at this level. He's proven, as he led Warner Christian to the state title game as a freshman and sophomore. He has Division 1 tools and that's why some smaller schools are keeping tabs on him.

Mainland's junior class will be strong as well. The two top prospects appear to be defensive end Quinton Powell and offensive lineman Wayne Scott.

Powell, 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, is very athletic and shows good quickness off the football. He's probably quick and athletic enough to play linebacker at this level but he will likely grow into a defensive end in college. He needs to continue getting stronger and more physical but he has a lot of the tools you look for in a major college DE prospect. He'll be one to watch for the 2013 class.

Scott, 6-foot-4 and 340 pounds, is a mountain of a left tackle. He projects more as a guard at the college level. He's a big, strong kid who can really maul people in the running game. He can move around, too, and was seen a few times 20 and 30 yards downfield throwing blocks. He'll need to keep his weight down and if he does, he'll likely get a lot of Division 1 looks in next year's class.

NOTE: Mainland tight end Anthony Russell (6-4/245) has several Division 1 offers but is out with a knee injury and likely won't play this season.
