The Opening: Previewing P.J.Mbanasor
7v7 Team: Landsharks
HT: 6'2 | WT: 180
Recruiting: Mbanasor committed to TCU, but after opening things back up he decided that Oklahoma was the spot for him, citing playing for two former college defensive backs (Bob and Mike Stoops) as a big reason behind his thought process.
Scouting Report: It is no surprise Mbanasor has become one of the most heavily recruited players in the area. He has a unique blend of skills that make him a desirable lock down corner prospect. Big-framed, but quick and plays low. Can sink his hips and turn. He has the size and strength to man up big-framed feature receivers. Plays with savvy and confidence, showing good hand-eye coordination. He just has a knack for getting a hand in to break up pass plays.
At Stake: Showed at the NFTC that he is as good as they come, taking home MVP honors, but quicker receivers like Ryan Newsome gave him some match-up problems. Coming in he could move up lists if he can show that he can lock down those types with his superior size.
