Scouting Report: Princeton High

McKinney, Texas -- was on hand for Princeton's scrimmage to scout its two BCS prospects: Jakari Dillard and Jourdan Blake...

WR Jakari Dillard (6'3, 170) – Texas Tech Commit
Dillard is a long and lean wide receiver prospect. He is a threat on the outside to score at any point in high school, and that is why you rarely see him without a safety over the top to help the corner cover the deep routes.

Still, despite the double coverage, he made a few solid plays in the scrimmage. He had five targets and had the day's two biggest plays.

One was on a touchdown on a vertical route, where the corner tipped the ball but Dillard stayed with the play and was able to reach out and secure the ball as he backed in to the end-zone. The next big play was on a skinny post where he got a one-on-one opportunity and made the defense pay. He was wide open and a defender tracked him down at the one-yard line to save a score.

Blake plays both ways…

Dillard is not the fast-twitch type, more in line with a possession style.

S Jourdan Blake (6'0, 175) – Baylor Commit
Blake is one of those high school players who rarely leaves the field. He leads the team as a quarterback on offense and is the team's most reliable defender at corner.

On offense, Blake got a few opportunities to show his running abilities, but was unable to shake loose for the big gain on this night. Still that capability is there as we saw him rush for 992 yards and 10 scores as a junior in 2012.

On defense, is where he really shined to me. He did not get tested in coverage very often, but made plays when he did. He lines up at corner and plays there more like a safety. He is aggressive in his run support and a sound tackler.

Physically, he is well put together. He is listed at 6'1, but seems more in the 5'11-6'0 range.
