Scout.com On The Road Report
Ramon Abreu – Safety – Marcos de Niza (Az.) - 2010
Final Score: Marcos de Niza 35, Desert Ridge 20

Scout's Take: Abreu is has been one of my favorite players over the past two years. He is simply a great high school football player as he does a lot of things well. This week he carried the ball 10 times for 44 yards and a score, caught 3 passes for 70 yards and a score, made 10 tackles and a sack and averaged 61 yards per punt on 3 punts. The biggest knock on Abreu is where exactly do you play him? He is just 5-11 185 and while not slow, is definitely not a burner. Some schools are recruiting him as a S, some as a CB and most as an athlete. I think he bulks up and plays S. He has a nose for the football, tackles well, has good change of direction and is explosive. -- Jason Jewell

Recruiting: Arizona State and Colorado appear to be the leaders for Abreu.
Jeremiah Attaochu – Outside Linebacker – Archbishop Carroll (D.C.) - 2010
Final Score: St. John's College 49, Archbishop Carroll 14

Scout's Take: Attaochu has all the physical tools coaches seek. He is very athletic with good size and very good closing speed. He stands about 6'3" and weighs 220 pounds. He runs well (4.69 forty) and is very strong. He plays defensive end although shows good linebacker skills as well. He is very fast off the edge as a pass rusher. He can keep his balance even when the lineman gets a hand on him. He has very good leverage and brings the thunder when he hits you. He has the athleticism to drop in space and run down screen plays. He can also get to the other sideline to disrupt a play. -- John Wallpher

Recruiting: Currently lists no favorites but has a visit scheduled to Maryland in December.
Martize Barr – Wide Receiver – Coolidge (D.C.) - 2010
Final Score: H.D. Woodson 24, Coolidge 13

Scout's Take: Barr displayed all the tools to be an impact player on the next level. He is a physical receiver that can get off the line even in press coverage by a larger defensive back. He has good speed and doesn't waste time cutting side to side he just gets up field. He showed off great hands and a knack for getting open. He is a reliable receiver that has hands of a possession receiver but the speed and play making ability of a deep threat. He excels as a kick/punt returner as well. Barr has 323 receiving yards on 22 receptions and a touchdown. -- John Wallpher

Recruiting: Has an offer from and official visit scheduled to Kansas in October; also holds offers from New Mexico and Rutgers.
Bryon Bennett – Defensive Tackle – Madison Central (Miss.) - 2010
Final Score: Madison Central 24, Clinton 3

Scout's Take: The 6' 3", 265 pound defensive lineman made big play after big play for Madison Central's defense Friday, as he collected 8 QB hurries, 1 sacks, and 8 tackles. Bryon is a sideline to sideline player who uses his quickness and athleticism to beat his man off of the ball. He also possesses plenty of strength. Bennett is being recruited for the defensive tackle position on the next level so he will need to continue to add weight. -- Yancy Porter

Recruiting: Currently lists favorites as Ole Miss and Texas Tech.
Charles Brown – Cornerback – St. John's College (D.C.) - 2010
Final Score: St. John's College 49, Archbishop Carroll 14

Scout's Take: Charles Brown has been impressing coaches for some time now. He showed what all the fuss was about. Brown is a terrific two way standout. He played well on both sides of the ball in a 49-14 victory over Archbishop Carroll High School. His team is now 3-1 on the season. Brown currently has six offers and every one is as a defensive back. There is no doubt about his ability on defense but Brown continues to be one of the best running backs in the area. Brown rushed 20 times for 173 yards and 4 touchdowns (28, 27, 7, 3). He dominated the flow of the game. He is fast and runs very hard. He breaks arm tackles and has very good balance. He is shifty and makes defenders miss even in close range. He finds a seam and burst through. He has the speed to take it the distance. On defense Brown is a punishing tackler with great range. Teams go away from his side most of the time. He tackles through the ball carrier and looks to separate the receiver from the ball with hard hits. He will make an excellent safety. He has the ability to play corner back but his skill set will allow him to excel at safety. -- John Wallpher

Recruiting: Offers from Akron, Kansas State, Kent State, and New Mexico.
Trey Burton – Quarterback – Venice (Fla.) - 2010
Final Score: Marcos de Niza 35, Desert Ridge 20

Scout's Take: The QB and UF commit finished 5-11 for 155 yards with four TD's. He added 47 yards on the ground with two more TD's. On those throws he showed excellent touch and the ball was delivered on time, in rhythm. He did throw one interception on a deep ball to Ceravalo, the ball hung in the air and wobbled a little, it was tipped and then caught by the defender. He struggled on some of the intermediate stuff, balls were just a little off. He is a perfect fit for the Gator offense, his running ability- both power and speed- will be utilized, the question will be his consistency in the passing game. Only time will tell, but he remains a work in progress. We like his ability to throw on the move and his delivery has gotten better- tighter. -- Geoff Vogt

Recruiting: Committed to Florida.
Nathaniel Clarke – Offensive Guard – Archbishop Carroll (D.C.) - 2010
Final Score: St. John's College 49, Archbishop Carroll 14

Scout's Take: Clarke is a huge two-way lineman with a big upside. He is still raw and learning the technique and fundamentals of the position. But he already has good feet and plays hard and with an edge. He has tough guy demeanor on the field. He is a wide body standing about 6'4" and weighing close to 300 pounds. Although he is a load to move on defense his future home at Maryland will be on offense. He shows quick feet and good balance. He seems strong and stays engaged with the defender. He uses his hands well to knock the defenders off balance. -- John Wallpher

Recruiting: Committed to Maryland.
Dallas Crawford – Quarterback – South Fort Myers (Fla.) - 2011
Final Score: Marcos de Niza 35, Desert Ridge 20

Scout's Take: Crawford went 18-34 for 254 yards and added 109 yards on the ground in a 35-7 District win over Bishop Verot. He had some drops by WR's or those numbers would be even better. He played almost every snap as he lined up at S and returned punts for the Wolfpack. Crawford is 5'10 so he will need to grow to stay at QB where he has a great arm, is very accurate, and his outstanding athleticism allows him to keep plays alive. He easily could play WR or DB at the next level. Crawford is simply a play-maker, he has a knack for being in the right spot at the right time. -- Geoff Vogt
Steele Divitto – Outside Linebacker – Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) - 2010
Final Score: Don Bosco Prep (NJ) 35, Prattville (AL) 24

Scout's Take: Devitto was one of the most impressive players in this star-studded game and played outside linebacker. He was making plays all over the field on Friday night against one of the nation's top ranked teams. He has great speed and excellent running sideline-to-sideline. Boston College is getting a great player in Devitto. -- Andrew Bone

Recruiting: Committed to Boston College
Marquis Flowers – Safety – Millenium (Az.) - 2010
Final Score: Centennial 51, Peoria 3

Scout's Take: Arizona's top prospect was contained pretty well against one of the top teams in the nation. He came into the game with 569 yards rushing and 8 TDs but was held to just 7 yards on 5 carries this week. Notre Dame is the only school to have offered as a RB, everyone else has offered as a S. He is long, has a big frame and is an explosive tackler. -- Jason Jewell

Recruiting: Flowers has played his recruiting close to the vest. He has scheduled a visit to Notre Dame and that is it. He holds offers from most of the Pac 10 as well. Says he will not announce until the US Army All America game.
Joshua Ford – Wide Receiver – Coolidge (D.C.) - 2010
Final Score: H.D. Woodson 24, Coolidge 13

Scout's Take: Joshua Ford is a talented wide receiver that makes the most of his opportunities. Ford caught the first touchdown of the game in which his team lost to a talented H.D. Woodson High School 24-13 after scoring the first thirteen points. After the 16 yard touchdown he caught another touchdown of about 30 yards that was called back because of a penalty. He ended up with two catches for thirty yards and a touchdown. Ford has good size and catches the ball with his hands. He has good speed and accelerates very well. He is elusive in the open field. He doesn't get as many opportunities as you would like an athlete of his caliber to get. He needs to separate better in one on one coverage but still can out play the defender for the ball most times. -- John Wallpher

Recruiting: Holds offers from Kansas, New Mexico, and Utah.
Sam Gibson – Quarterback – Prattville (Ala.) - 2010
Final Score: Don Bosco Prep (NJ) 35, Prattville (AL) 24

Scout's Take: Sam Gibson had a great performance on Friday night, but threw a key interception towards the end of the game. Gibson did great facing adversity as Prattville went down 23-0. He made a great run in the second quarter to get the Lions on the scoreboard. He broke a tackle for a long touchdown run in the third quarter to regain the momentum. He had more than 100 yards passing and rushing for the night. The LSU commitment is an excellent athlete with great speed, but will play a different position on the next level. -- Andrew Bone

Recruiting: Committed to LSU.
Tony Jones – Running Back – Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) - 2010
Final Score: Don Bosco Prep (NJ) 35, Prattville (AL) 24

Scout's Take: Tony Jones was sensational Friday night as he torched the Prattville defense for 222 yards and three touchdowns. He was explosive out of the backfield and no stopping him once he got in the open field. He made several defenders miss and showed great cut back ability. Scout.com four-star safety and Tide commitment Nick Perry of Prattville stated, "He [Jones] was a lot better than we thought." -- Andrew Bone
James Kittridge – Defensive End – Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) - 2010
Final Score: Don Bosco Prep (NJ) 35, Prattville (AL) 24

Scout's Take: James Kittredge came South to play in the country where his future team resides in the SEC. The Don Bosco defense was solid in the first half and stepped up when they needed to in the fourth quarter. The Vanderbilt commitment had a few stops and harassed the Prattville offensive line. Sam Gibson, Prattville quarterback and LSU commitment, was able to get away from some of the pressure because of his speed. Kittredge had a solid game. -- Andrew Bone

Recruiting: Committed to Vanderbilt.
Carlton Martin – Defensive Tackle – Madison Central (Miss.) - 2010
Final Score: Madison Central 24, Clinton 3

Scout's Take: The 6' 1 1/2", 270 pound defensive lineman continues to show why he is considered one of the nation's best. Carlton has one of the more explosive first steps in the high school ranks and has the strength to bull rush you, if needed. Martin will need to continue to get bigger for the next level, but you will find few with the raw skills that Scout.com's #24 nationally rated DT possesses. -- Yancy Porter

Recruiting: Currently lists favorites as Alabama, Baylor, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss.
Andre Monroe – Defensive Tackle – St. John's College (D.C.) - 2010
Final Score: St. John's College 49, Archbishop Carroll 14

Scout's Take: Andre Monroe is not your typical defensive lineman. He is barely six feet tall and seems even shorter because of his body style. Monroe is very thick though and although needs some conditioning he plays his body very well. He is a relentless defender and goes to the whistle every time. He is tireless and wears down the offensive lineman because of his "can do" attitude he displays on every down. He not only controls his area but can collapse a gap with his explosiveness. He is very quick and fires off low providing great leverage against his opponent. Monroe pursues well and is a threat as a pass rusher. -- John Wallpher

Recruiting: Committed to Maryland.
Bryan Murphy – Defensive End – Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) - 2010
Final Score: Don Bosco Prep (NJ) 35, Prattville (AL) 24

Scout's Take:Bryan Murphy was relentless all night on the defensive line and disrupted a lot of plays in the backfield. One thing that really stood out was Murphy's motor. It never stopped running. He could grow into a defensive tackle, but his athleticism proved he can definitely play defensive end on the next level. Prattville offensive line coach LaBrian Stewart described Murphy, "He was a beast. That guy is going to have a chance to play on Sundays." -- Andrew Bone

Recruiting: Committed to Pittsburgh.
Charone Peake – Wide Receiver – Dorman (S.C.) - 2011
Final Score: Dorman 49, Hanna 7

Scout's Take: Though just a junior, the 6-foot-3 Peake gets plenty of respect even from teams not in his region as Hanna completely decided to bracket him with a corner up close and a safety 15 yards down the field over top of him, and Dorman was more than happy to oblige with runs up the middle and passes to a 6-3 receiver on the other side of the ball. As Hanna cheated the safety back towards the middle of the field, Dorman decided to let Peake touch the ball, and on three touches Peake scored three times - once running after lining up in the backfield, once on a crossing pattern, and once as a punt returner. Not a bad day for a decoy. -- Miller Safrit

Recruiting: Listed his favorites after the game as Clemson, Florida, and Georgia. Visited Clemson on Saturday and now lists the Tigers as his number one choice right now.
Nick Perry – Safety – Prattville (Ala.) - 2010
Final Score: Don Bosco Prep (NJ) 35, Prattville (AL) 24

Scout's Take: Nick Perry continues to impress and no doubt he is one of the top prospects in the South. He played physical and made several big hits. He had an interception on a two point conversion attempt and recovered a fumble in the game. The Tide commitment is a big safety who plays with great instincts and closing speed. -- Andrew Bone

Recruiting: Committed to Alabama.
Brandon Sacco – Offensive Tackle – Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) - 2010
Final Score: Don Bosco Prep (NJ) 35, Prattville (AL) 24

Scout's Take: Brandon Sacco spent time on both sides of the ball during the game, but mainly played right tackle. He is a tough, hard-nosed football player who plays very aggressive. He will end up playing on the interior offensive line on the next level, and Pittsburgh is getting a fundamentally sound player. -- Andrew Bone

Recruiting: Committed to Pittsburgh.
Tobias Singleton – Wide Receiver – Madison Central (Miss.) - 2011
Final Score: Madison Central 24, Clinton 3

Scout's Take: The junior receiver is the complete packege, as he has the size (6' 2", 190), speed, hands, and vision to become a big time wideout on the college level. Tobias took over the game as he scored the first TD on a nifty screen and put the nail in the coffin with the last TD on a 60 yard reverse. He will be one of the nation's top receiver prospect in next year's class. -- Yancy Porter

Recruiting: Holds offers from Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
Avery Williams – Wide Receiver – Coolidge (D.C.) - 2010
Final Score: H.D. Woodson 24, Coolidge 13

Scout's Take: Williams rushed for 48 yards on 8 carries and had a one yard touchdown. He is a quick-footed athlete that really bursts in and out of his cuts. He also has a great spin move. He runs hard and his speed provides him some power but he doesn't have the size or strength to be an every down back on the next level. He is great in space and has good hands. He could play wide receiver on the next level and is an excellent special teams player. -- John Wallpher

Recruiting: Currently holds offers from West Virginia, which is his leader, Kansas, Michigan State, and Utah.
