Scouting Jay Guy

Aldine Eisenhower has featured some of the more coveted players in the state of Texas in the last two years. The next highly sought prospect out of the Eagle program will be nose guard Jay Guy. The 6-0, 310-pound junior has already received offers from Michigan, Texas A&M and Kansas State with many more to come.

Aldine Eisenhower is home to one of the top nose guard prospects in the country in the junior class. Jay Guy burst onto the scene as a sophomore in 2007 playing next to then senior Rod Davis, who was being recruited nationally. Often, Guy was the most dominant interior player for the Eagles as he showed a nonstop motor and played in the offensive backfield with a low pad level and quick first step.

After the 2007 season, Guy was named 19-5A 2nd team.

Guy, 6-0, 310 pounds, took his game up a notch as a junior. Guy took on constant double teams in 2008, but continued to play with the motor and quickness that has college programs nationwide taking a long look at the nose guard.

Guy, who was recently selected to the 19-5A 1st team, has received offers from Michigan, Texas A&M, and Kansas State along with heavy interest Texas, Oklahoma, Florida and LSU.

Scouting Jay Guy

Guy is a zero tech/nose guard deluxe. At 6-0, 310 pounds (weight fluctuates between 310 and 320), the junior doesn't have the problem that many top defensive tackle prospects have, as he can win many of the leverage battles at the high school level against offensive lineman that often give 6-3, 6-4 and 6-5 defensive tackle prospects fits.

Guy fires off the ball with a quick first step and a low pad level. He plays the game with an impressive motor and will rarely be seen taking a play off. He has shown the ability to move laterally from gap to gap as well as a quick spin move. Powerful in his lower body, the honor roll student has the ability to fight through a double team with his combo of power, quickness and low pad level.

Along with the physical capabilities, Guy does a good job of shooting the hands and striking with a powerful initial punch. He has nice arm length and understands how to use his them to his advantage. He does a good job of finding the football and diagnosing plays.

Guy is not going to make plays outside of the tackles, but that is not asked of most nose guards. Guy is a player that will require a double team and free up others within a scheme at the next level. If single blocked, he will make plays against the run. He will help a program slow down the inside running game of an opponent.
