Scouting: Bolles/American Heritage

Bolles defeated American Heritage by the score of 21-13 on Friday night in Jacksonville in what may have been a preview of this year's Class 2A state championship game in Florida. Scout.com was there for all the action.

With more than a half dozen seniors on the field who already have Division 1 offers and strong junior classes on both sides, the Bolles/American Heritage game on Friday night offered plenty of prospects to look at.

The most impressive prospect on the field was Bolles junior Brent Benedict. At 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds, Benedict is built the right way, has good feet, plays hard, and is well-coached. He has a lot of the physical tools you look for in an O-Line prospect and the way he plays has a lot of people, including myself, thinking he'll be a national recruit next year.

The most productive defensive player on either team in this game was Bolles linebacker Bradley Terry. At 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, Terry played like a legitimate Division 1 player on Friday night.

Senior running back Steve Barnett is already committed to Tulane and he was running hard all night, going for over 100 yards. He showed everyone why he had several Div 1 scholarship offers before choosing the Green Wave.

Barnett wasn't the only running back prospect showing off his skills for Bolles, as junior Jawan Jamison showed why he'll likely be a Division 1 running back next year. At 5-8 and 185, he's not the biggest kid around but he runs hard and seems to find daylight whenever given the ball.

- Jamison

Senior tight end Mason Johnston is already committed to Vanderbilt and he had a solid night blocking for the strong Bolles running game. While he was only thrown to one time (a pass he dropped), Johnston gets after it in the running game and should make a good blocking tight end at the next level.

Junior safety Desmond Cooper looks like one of the top 2010 players for Bolles. At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, Cooper runs very well and made some very key stops late in the game on American Heritage's final drive. He looks like a definite Division 1 kid for next year.

Bolles quarterback Chandler Carr made some nice throws in this game and while he's only 6-feet, he's only a junior and looks like he has some nice tools to work with.

The most heavily recruited player at American Heritage is senior left tackle Jared Wheeler, who at 6-5 and 310 pounds will likely play guard in college. He's a big, strong kid who already has several Division 1 offers.

Senior Brent Singleton is already committed to South Carolina and he was playing on both sides of the ball. He was running hard at running back and made some plays on the defensive side. You have to like the way he's able to change directions. At 6-feet and 200 pounds, Singleton projects as a strong safety in college.

Senior Rishard Anderson moves around from corner to safety and will even play right up on the line of scrimmage. The Wake Forest commitment isn't afraid to mix it up and made some nice plays in this game, both in the running game and the passing game, on defense. At 6-feet and 175 pounds, Anderson looked like the fastest and most athletic player on the entire field on both sides.

- Anderson

Senior Daniel Roundtree has some Division 1 offers and he showed why on Friday night. Playing both running back and defensive back, Roundtree came up with some nice plays and seems to run pretty well. At 6-feet and 185 pounds, Roundtree is being recruited to play on defense.

Senior wide receiver Khalil Walker transferred from Chaminade during the offseason and although he had a drop or two, he runs pretty well and looks like a possible Division 1 kid.

- Walker

Quarterback Ryan Williams looked like American Heritage's best junior prospect. A big kid at 6-4 and 210, Williams is a big, strong, physical presence who has a nice arm. He's able to step up into his throws and does a nice job of making things happen with his feet as well. He started as a sophomore as well and looks like he could continue developing into one of the state's better junior QB prospects.

- Williams

I already talked about OL Jared Wheeler but his younger brother, Jacob, will be a 2010 prospect as well. At 6-7 and 240, Wheeler plays primarily defensive end, even though he lined up at tight end on occasion in this game as well. He's a big, long kid who is also a good basketball player.
