Top 5 Midlands Centers
http://media.scout.com/media/image/136/1360635.jpg 1 Zach Rogers Hebron  Texas 6'3/295 Arkansas
Junior Eval: He understands his assignments and is super strong at the point of attack. Has good feet and can block on the second level. You also have to love Rogers' motor as he plays until the whistle blows.

A.J. Harris

Blue Valley  Kansas 6'4/296 Missouri
Junior Eval: Harris is very strong and often overpowering at the point of attack. He takes good angles to get in position to have down field blocks. Keeps his head on a swivel to find contact around the pile and finishes with aggression.

Junior Eval: He is quick off the line and that allows him to gain the upper hand with his positioning. Can get to the second and third levels to make blocks and is able to pull effectively. Could play guard or center in college. Adding size will benefit.

Junior Eval: He is as big in the upper body as you will see. Looks like he could bench press a truck. He will need to continue to work on his lateral quickness and footwork, but if he locks on it is basically over. Moore is a nasty finisher.

Junior Eval: Wilson is one one of the more valued blockers on the private school level. Playing left tackle in high school he will make the move to guard or center once he gets to college. He plays with good technique and balance.
Best of the Rest: Ryan Peschka, Clayton Woods, Willie Williams
