In a bit of a surprise, Webb City reeled off 40 unanswered points after Rockhurst jumped out to a 14-0 lead en route to a 40-14 victory. The game was delayed by lightning but that did nothing to stem the momentum Webb City had created in the second quarter.
Rockhurst tight end Charlie Heck projects to be an offensive tackle at the next level. He's receiving interest from North Carolina, Northern Illinois, and Kansas State but has yet to earn his first FBS offer. He does have a preferred walk-on opportunity at Notre Dame.
Senior quarterback T.J. Green showcased his strong arm once again, though he did have his struggles. The son of former NFL quarterback Trent Green has a couple offers from Northern Illinois and Arkansas State.
2016 Rockhurst running back A.J. Taylor will have a large offer sheet this time next year but is still awaiting his first. Junior offensive linemen Claudio Martin and Brendan McConnell have had better games but they're on their way towards being FBS prospects as well.
Webb City senior athlete KiAnte Hardin is focusing his recruitment on Minnesota, Bowling Green, and Tulsa at this time. He knows he wants to take an official visit to see the Gophers this Fall. Oregon State has also begun to show interest.
Senior offensive lineman Dalton Ford will be an interior lineman at next level and added a new offer from Arkansas State recently, and they are the school he's showing the most interest in at this time. He's visiting Arkansas State today.
TOP WEBB CITY PROSPECT
The top prospect for the Cardinals that impressed Friday night was offensive tackle Dalton Ford. He's more likely to be a guard at the next level, but he and the rest of his offensive line group were the foundation for Webb City's success throughout the game. He's got great size and moves well for his stature. He's 6-foot-4 and 280 pounds and put together very well. More aggressiveness and a better punch would suit his game well.
TOP ROCKHURST PROSPECT
The top recruit for the Hawklets would be between two players, in my opinion. Senior Charlie Heck and junior A.J. Taylor stand out for Rockhurst.
Heck isn't being recruited too aggressively as of now, and is very under the radar. He stars as a tight end and a defensive end, but his future could reside as an offensive tackle. He's far away from being a finished product but his size is hard to ignore. It's all upside in regards to what Heck could be come.
Taylor is the best weapon offensively for Rockhurst. He is placed in the slot quite a bit but he's a weapon with the ball in his hands. He could be a running back or an inside receiver at the next level, and someone that can just make things happen. He's got great quickness, vision, and elusiveness.
