Game Scouted:
Bellevue (Wash.) vs. Euless (Texas) Trinity

Scout Out West
Myles Jack – 6-2/220 - OLB – Bellevue (Wash.) - 2013
Recruiting: Committed to UCLA
Scouting Report: Jack is the top defensive prospect in the Pacific Northwest, a four-star outside linebacker, but you could also say he's the best two-way prospect in the region. Defensively, he was lining up as an end, primarily rushing the quarterback, with the occasional drop into coverage. He had two sacks and double-digit tackles, and his second sack of the night loomed large for the Wolverines, knocking out the Trinity quarterback on the next-to-last play of regulation. The backup quarterback came in for overtime, and under pressure from Jack, threw an interception on the first play to end the game. Offensively, Jack had a 66-yard touchdown where he showed his vision, finding the hole, then surprising breakaway speed. He also had a big, physical run in overtime that set up the Wolverines go-ahead touchdown.
Sean Constantine – 6-2/228 – MLB – Bellevue (Wash.) - 2013
Recruiting: Committed to Washington
Scouting Report: Constantine may not be as flashy as Baker or as explosive as Jack, but he was just as consistent as his teammates, and while he never jumps off the screen at you, he's in on every tackle and does what you want your linebacker to do; end the play. He easily was in double-digits in tackles, and did a great job in stopping the Trinity running game. He also played some offense as an inside receiver, and sprung a big run by Baker with a punishing block on a linebacker.
Budda Baker – 5-11/175 – ATH – Bellevue (Wash.) - 2014
Recruiting: Offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Notre Dame, Oregon State, Purdue, UCLA, Utah, Washington, Washington State
Scouting Report: Baker is one of the top 2014 prospects in the West and much like Jack, he made major contributions in all three facets of the game. While he was one of three backs to rotate for the Wolverines, he looked the most natural at the position. His balance is what sets him apart from the other two, he would get hit, keep his feet and his stride, and still peel off a few more yards. He also made some big contributions as a kick and punt returner, several times, giving the Wolverines good field position. Defensively, Baker showed great closing speed, and quick hands, breaking up a couple of passes, and laid some big hits on Trinity.
Marcus Griffin – 6-3/280 – DT – Bellevue (Wash.) - 2014
Recruiting: Interest in several Western schools.
Scouting Report: Griffin did a good job filling his gap and shedding his blockers.  He filled a lot of space and was difficult to block, especially early in the game, a number of times drawing a double-team.  But he tired a bit towards the end so he'll need to work on his endurance.  The good news is he's still a junior and has time to get into good shape, but all the tools and size are there for him to be a bigtime tackle prospect.
