Big moves out West in final Scout Rankings

The final Scout 300 and four star prospects have been released and several players out West made big moves. Here's a look at who increased their stock the most as we fly toward Signing Day just four weeks from now.

Troy Williams, QB, #10 from #13 (76 spots in 300)

"After putting together one of the finest seasons a City Section quarterback has ever had, Troy Williams culminated the year by cementing himself in the top ten nationally. Williams has a great arm, can make all the throws, is mobile, is a winner and has all the intangibles you want in a quarterback. This was easily his most complete season as a quarterback in a fine career for Narbonne. And Washington fans are comfortable knowing he's already on campus."

Marcus Baugh, TE, #3 from #4 (29 spots in 300)

"Marcus Baugh had a great week at the UnderArmour practices, one of the most consistent pass-catchers there. He's also shown a continued excellence in blocking, an important trait for tight ends. From a region that produced two of the three finalists for the Mackey Award, including the winner, Baugh continues in a long line of talented tight ends from the West."

John Mundt, TE, #13 from #21 (and 3-star to 4-star)

"John Mundt first caught our eyes at the Oakland NFTC, where he was the best tight end there. He followed it up with a fantastic senior season, shining on both sides of the ball, both at tight end and at defensive end. He helped his school win its first state championship, and offensively, really stepped up. He's deceptively quick, has great size, soft hands, runs good routes, and is a punishing blocker. He also was good the whole week at the Semper Fidelis All-American Game, and used his big senior year to move from a three-star to a four-star"

Anu Solomon, QB, #35 from #40 (and 3-star to 4-star)

"Arizona has three quarterbacks in this class, but few fit the mold better than Anu Solomon, who is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the West. What he doesn't do with his arm, he does with his legs. And all the guy does is win- he engineered three consecutive state championships for Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman and capped his career with a spot in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl."

Terrell Newby, RB, #17 from #24 (77 in the 300)

"Newby went from a good prospect to a great prospect with a big senior season. He's an incredibly explosive back with the ability to score from anywhere on the field. He shows plenty of wiggle, can finish his runs and flashes good hands out of the backfield as well. Newby had one of the biggest performances of the year when he rushed for 351 yards and eight touchdowns while only playing in the 1st series of the second half.

Poasi Moala, OT, #11 from #37 (and 3-star to 4-star)

"Moala is the prototype of what you're looking for in an elite college tackle prospect. He has a long, lean frame that he'll easily grow in to. He has great athleticism and moves like a player half his size, plays with a mean streak and his upside is off the charts. RV head coach Pete Duffy said Moala compares favorably to former Mustang OL Tyron Smith who was a 1st round pick by the Dallas Cowboys out of USC."

Pierre Cormier, RB, #29 from #59 (and 3-star to 4-star)

"Cormier saved his best performance of the year for the Madison's final game of the season. The running back ran wild leading the Warhawks to the Div II state championship rushing for 252 yards and three touchdowns. Cormier has a great burst, is tough to bring down in the open field and can stop and start on a dime. He's not a big back but runs hard and isn't afraid to get the tough yards between the tackles and should be a great fit in Rich Rod's offense."

John Ross, WR, #15 from #28 (95 spots in the 300)

"Ross has been talked about all year as one of the most under-rated receivers in the region. After a strong showing during the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl practices where he was the most explosive player on the West roster, you can take away the under-rated tag and just call him one of the nation's best the position. Ross has good speed, runs well after the catch, is a polished route runner and has excellent hands. He could make an early impact for the Huskies next fall.

Jermaine Kelly, CB, #16 from #22

"Even as the No. 16 ranked corner in the country, is it possible that Kelly is still one of the biggest sleepers in the nation? No player out west has emerged more since the summer than Kelly who could be the best athlete in the state. When you watch his senior film, and see Kelly returning kicks for touchdowns, taking short passes, making three or four players miss and getting to the house or locking opposing receivers up at corner, it's eerily similar to what current USC All-American Marqise Lee looked like as a senior.
