Offers from Eastern Washington, Idaho
, Montana, Portland State, Wyoming
In a game that Federal Way scored 62 points, Tate was
solid, not spectacular. He did have a couple of catches, but
for the most part, most of his contributions came on defense. Tate is a
guy we saw a lot of in the spring and summer, though, and he's a definite FBS
level guy, with a number of offers. He's not ridiculously fast, but fast enough,
with excellent hands and superb route-running. He could definitely still
use some more weight to avoid being so easily jammed at the line.
Interest in several
McClatcher is not a big kid, but he's fast. At about 5-7, 155, and just a sophomore (2015 class), he looks a lot like DeAnthony Thomas did at this age, undersized, but difficult to do anything to because of how shifty and speedy he is. He had a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown and a 58-yard touchdown reception. He also had a 67-yard run that set up a touchdown, with nearly 250 all-purpose yards in a 62-28 victory. He still has plenty of time to grow and get bigger, but he's already got elite speed and quickness and is just a playmaker.
Committed to Portland State
Dawson had a nice game offensively, scoring on a
66-yard run, when the game was still in doubt. He showed good burst and
cutback getting up the field, and good instincts. Defensively, he wasn't
tested all that much, and did a good job when matched up on Tate, his 7on7
teammate. He's a definite FBS prospect, and should really flourish at the
– 6-3/230 – OLB/RB – Mountlake Terrace (Wash.) - 2014
Interest in several
Downs is an intriguing two-way threat from the 2014 class. While he looks like an ideal linebacker, he was a little stiff for the position, not getting a great push coming off the edge, or showing real explosion. Offensively, though, Downs looks like an optimal power-back. With decent speed, and good size (6-2, 230), he's a load to handle up the middle and does a good job of keeping his legs going and gaining yards after contact. He rushed for 125 yards and four touchdowns, and had two touchdowns called back. Originally we had him as an outside linebacker, but his best position in college, at this stage at least, is likely as a power back, fullback type.
