The Red Ravens have another talented bunch of players on the roster for the upcoming 2015 season. Most of the future FBS athletes for head coach Aaron Flores' Coffeyville squad come from a couple positions.
The nationally known power opens up their season in a couple of weeks, but not before they scrimmage next week. Camp continued this week and Scout was in attendance for one of their practices.
Defensive end Timmy Hamilton. Safely put, Hamilton is a future "Power 5" conference player. He's every bit of 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds with burst off the edge. His hand usage is something that he will want to continue to learn to be more effective to avoid getting locked up by opposing offensive tackles. He's in store to have a tremendous final junior college season. Illinois is the school to watch.
Defensive tackle Bobby Leath. Iowa State and Illinois are the programs in contention for Leath's services. He's a run-stuffing defensive tackle with a large body and the understanding of how to use it. All 6-foot-4 and 290 pounds of him has no problem doing the dirty work in the middle and occupying interior blockers to free up his teammates. He'll want to make sure he keeps his head up to be aware of how the play is developing and locate the ball, but he's exceptional off the snap, making it difficult for the interior lineman he's across from.
Wide receiver Dominique Reed. Speed is the name of the game for Reed and you won't find a faster player at the junior college level. He needs to become more consistent catching the ball, but his smooth and effortless elite speed makes him as dangerous as anyone with the ball in his hands. Reed will have everything he needs to become a great player at the position when his hands and ball skills improve. All the other physical tools are there. He's a Camden (AR) native with a Razorbacks offer. It'd be a surprise if he ended up anywhere else.
Wide receiver Dijuan Ussery. He's the most technically sound of the three wideouts receiving college looks for Coffeyville. A little slender and will want to add bulk, but a great route-runner with good hands. Not sure he's a "Power 5" guy, but someone that can contribute at the FBS level without a doubt.
Wide receiver Akia Booker. He's the big-bodied receiver of the bunch with the most explosion. He looks the part, more so than Reed and Ussery. He doesn't have the agility and speed that they do, but he's stronger and more explosive, and more natural catching the ball. He has the potential to be a very good possession wideout at the next level.
Safety Devonta Foster. He's the type of safety that wants to come up and leave his mark by delivering the big hit. He'll want to continue to improve on his pass coverage, and he's not someone that should be expected to match up with a receiver one on one. He will provide strong run support and make receivers think twice about coming over the middle.
