Make no mistake about the level of competition played by Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne High School. The Warriors have been sending players to the college and NFL ranks since Jay Minton took over as head coach. Now Minton not only has one of the top prospects in the Class of 2011 in Braxton Miller, he also has a few for the Class of 2010 with the best possibly being defensive lineman Terry Talbott.
At 6-foot-3, 265-pounds Talbott is showing the frame college coaches look for to build upon. So what makes Talbott a player of high interest? Lets look at what he shows on film.
The first thing that stands out is Terry Talbott's initial quickness off the ball. When Talbott comes off he's low and has the ability to handle blockers by himself while keeping himself ready to make a play.
Good hand usage with the ability to beat a block with quickness or strength makes him a hard player to handle. Talbott does a good job of shedding blocks and has the instincts and reactions to make plays in pursuit.
Talbott plays with a high motor and shows the ability to pass rush with power while keeping his hands in position to knock down passes.
Here are highlight clips from Talbott's junior season.
