Scout Breaks Down Four-Star LB Addison Gumbs Recent Showing at The Opening Finals

July 18 -- Hayward (Calif.) Stellar Prep linebacker Addison Gumbs is one of the most versatile players out West...

Evaluation Notes:

Addison Gumbs is one of the top pass rushers out West and is very explosive coming off the edge. He does have 7v7 experience and looked comfortable playing in space and dropping in to coverage. He has a long, athletic frame, runs well and flashes good closing speed.

Gumbs will need to add some size and strength but has a very nice upside to him. He could fit in any type of scheme as an outside linebacker/pass rusher and plays with a nice physical edge to him. He's a naturally aggressive player, the son of a coach, and has a high understanding of how to play the game. 

Recruiting Update:

We thought Gumbs could announce at The Opening but he wasn't quite ready to pull the trigger. It does sound like a decision could come sometime this month with the UCLA Bruins looking like the team to beat with the Oklahoma SoonersOregon DucksUSC Trojans and Washington Huskies all very much in the mix as well.
