Scouting: Good Counsel

More than a dozen BCS prospects took the field Saturday in a rivalry game between to DeMatha and Good Counsel. Today we take an in-depth look at Good Counsel players Stefon Diggs, Wes Brown, Dorian O'Daniel, and Kendall Fuller.

Good Counsel

Stefon Diggs Other than his 62 punt return, Diggs was quiet for most of the day. He actually dropped the first pass thrown his way, but managed 3 receptions for 42 yards despite being a decoy.  There is no doubt about Diggs deserving his five star ranking, but he’ll need to add more physicality to his game in order to become a complete player.

Wes Brown:  After starting the game off with a 3 yard touchdown run, Brown’s carries tailed off and he failed to finish the game.  An ankle injury has been bothering for him weeks, and it seemed to affect him on Saturday.  In watching him on film and camp settings, he showed more of a burst and explosiveness to his game.  I didn’t see that Wes Brown this time around.  It took him a while to reach top speed and even then he got caught from behind.  This probably wasn’t the best time to truly evaluate the four-star running back, so we’ll give him a pass. 

Dorian O’Daniel:  This class of 2013 athlete carried the load once Wes Brown left the game.  He has good speed and power, and had a team high with 3 touchdowns on just 14 carries (99 yards).  The talk about O’Daniel centers around what position he’ll play on the next level. His frame and attributes suggest that he could be a linebacker further down the line. 

Kendall Fuller:  This talented youngster impacted the game on both sides of the ball.  His contributions on offense were needed, but his interception late in the fourth quarter just about sealed the win for Good Counsel.  Fuller gave up a 34 yard pass completion for a touchdown in the first quarter, but rebounded quickly, showing the kind of psyche expected from a corner with his family lineage.
