State Scouting Report: Erik Huhn

The other half of Cibolo Steele's dynamic safety duo with Jordan Sterns, Erik Huhn is a standout player in his own right.

Huhn is a tall, lanky safety who likely projects as a linebacker at the next level. At 6-foot-3 he runs well, but isn't always the most fluid in coverage. He does break well, and hits a ton. And more importantly than all of that, he's the rare player who always finds himself right in the middle of the action, because his instincts are so strong. While he's not explosive athletically, he moves well for his size and demonstrates nice range.

Huhn had an All-State type season for Steele, but struggled in the state championship game. He played with his pads too high at times, and also came into a few contact situations with his pads back, rather than over the balls of his feet. Accordingly, he was stiff armed to the ground.

It would be hard to take too much from that game, which often featured Huhn trying to play in space against one of the toughest players in space in the state. Instead, he still projects as the type of player who could add some weight and play that in-the-box safety or "monster" linebacker at 215-220.
