I had a chance recently to look at two video films of Salesianum HS (DE) Junior QB Gene DelleDonne.
Gene has thrown for some nice yardage this year for an overmatched Salesianum HS squad. Most of the film I saw showed an offense where Gene had little more than 2 seconds to throw the ball, typically under a heavy pass rush.
Because of that typically heavy pass rush, and the short time Gene usually had to throw the ball, making a complete evaluation was probably not possible. Still, there was a lot to look at.
Gene is a big tall kid at about 6'5" and 220lbs. Gene is a typical pocket style QB who won't be looking to run with the ball. Gene looks to stay in or around the pocket so that he can throw the ball.
Gene does not have the kind of receiving corps at Salesianum where you can run a lot of deeper routes and expect them to get open. Still, Gene can be seen making some nice throws downfield on the tape.
Gene has a nice touch and good ball speed. Gene is a strong kid who doesn't go down easily in the pocket at this level.
The film shows a good young prospect who will certainly generate considerable recruiting interest for the class that will sign in February 2005.
