Pittsburgh Mt. Lebanon vs. Wexford (Pa.) North Allegheny
Mt. Lebanon's Alex Bookser, a four-star uncommitted offensive tackle, was impressive in that he played on both sides of the ball throughout the game despite a 55-7 loss. He was powerful and explosive and he was able to get underneath defenders. Penn State commit Troy, Apke, who played receiver and safety, was neutralized on offense and did not catch one pass down the field. He also dropped a screen pass that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.
Pittsburgh commit Elijah Zeise starred for North Allegheny on both sides of the ball. He will go to the Panthers as a receiver. He was quick in short space and he also tracked the ball well.
Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt vs. Harrisburg (Pa.)
It was a disappointing Saturday for Rutgers commit and Harrisburg running back Robert Martin, who left the game in the third quarter with a right knee injury. Martin stood out as a linebacker shooting the gaps and getting into the backfield and also showed an ability to get through the hole quickly as a running back. Bishop McDevitt class of 2015 running back Andre Robinson ran with great balance and has thick thighs and was hard to arm tackle. He had quick feet and was able to accelerate after making a cut.
Aliquippa (Pa.) vs. Ambridge (Pa.)
Four-star cornerback Dravon Henry wasn't asked to do much on defense since Ambridge only through one pass his way, and it was nearly intercepted. He also spent time on safety, but watching him at running back showcased his acceleration (closing speed on defense) and his foot speed. Defensive tackle Jaleel Fields was able to get a strong push into the Ambridge backfield and was able to run down the line of scrimmage to make plays.
Meanwhile, 2016 running back Kaezon Pugh is a kid to watch. He was the third running back used, playing behind Henry and Swanson. Pugh, 6-foot, 190 pounds, is shifty and smooth, and has the speed to finish runs. He glides through holes and could turn into big-time recruit.
Baltimore St. Frances vs. Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate
It was a hot, hot afternoon game and it left many of the starters on the bench for much of the second half for a loaded FCA. Arizona commit Jonathan Haden, a running back, plays with a low center of gravity, is shifty and has good vision. Four-star cornerback Jalen Tabor wasn't tested in coverage but he did come up in run support a few times.
Class of 2015 offensive lineman Quarvez Bouleware played right tackle but looks like a guard. He moves well and plays low, and he has the athleticism to pull as an interior lineman. Safety Daejuan Funderburk, who said he de-committed from Temple, moved forward and was able to fill holes in the running game.
Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga vs. Cocoa (Fla.)
Gonzaga is loaded in the 2015 class and four of those prospects showed out in a big way. Offensive lineman Richie Petitbon showed his athleticism and grit, and he opened several big holes in the running game. Cornerback Marcus Lewis wasn't tested much in the passing game but he is an imposing figure at 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, on the outside. He drives on the ball well and is physical at the line of scrimmage. Quarterback Nick Johns made nice throws on the run and showed poise under pressure. He had good arm strength and has a nice delivery.
Cocoa defensive tackle Freddie Booth-Lloyd is a big body in the middle. He is quick off the snap and was tough to block unless he was double teamed. But the kid to jump out in the game was 2017 athlete Bruce Judson, who plays quarterback but will be recruited as a running back.
Baltimore The Gilman School vs. Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee
Gilman's Troy Vincent, a Penn State commit, turned and moved on the ball well was able to drive forward well out of his backpedal, but the impact on the running game was minimal. Defensive end Melvin Keihn had trouble disengaging from blocks and his reaction time wasn't as quick as it was a week ago against Good Counsel. Missouri commit Trevon Walters, a running back for Manatee, was elusive and showed very good acceleration. Defensive tackle DeMarcus Christmas, a Florida State commit, was tough to block. He beat defensive players off the snap and has the speed to track down players along the line of scrimmage.
Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha vs. Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby
DeMatha is loaded, especially at the skill positions on offense, but one player who is easy to notice is 6-8, 310-pound left tackle Brock Ruble. He is big and long, and he did a nice job of extending his arms and making it miserable for the Godby defenders to get around him. He did reach in the running game and that impacted his balance, but the more he works on moving his feet, the further his game will develop. The Stags also have running back Taiwan Deal, a Wisconsin commit. He is a big running back who is a one-cut and go back. He plays downhill and got through the hole quickly, and is a perfect fit for Wisconsin's offense. Receiver Cameron Phillips, a Virginia Tech commit, was able to get open often and he is quick coming out of breaks. He also showed good hands. Defensively, a standout was linebacker JaWhaun Bentley, who used his speed and anticipation to shoot gaps and make plays at or behind the line of scrimmage.
