Scout On the Road: October

Oct. 28 -- Scout takes a look at some of the top prospects we saw in person during the month of October...


ATH Tray Bishop, Dawson (Ga.) Terrell County, 2017

Bishop did not come off the field very often. He played quarterback, safety and punt returner. He made a couple of plays at quarterback when plays broke down, and it showed what type of athlete he is. He displayed a great burst on each side of the ball. He is an Auburn commit who is still planning to take official visits to Florida and Georgia. -Simmons

QB Harrison Bailey, Marietta (Ga.), 2020

Bailey has already broken multiple records held by former Georgia Bulldog and NFL quarterback Eric Zeier; and he is only a freshman. He has great poise and he is very mature for his age. Bailey has a good arm and he has size coaches look for in a pocket passer already as well. Georgia recently offered, and that is just another school on his impressive list. Alabama, Florida, LSU, Miami and North Carolina among others have offered as well. -Simmons

ATH DeeJay Dallas, Brunswick (Ga.) Glynn Academy, 2017

Watching Dallas play is just fun. He plays quarterback for his team, and the offense truly runs through him. He runs a lot of zone reads, some option out of the shotgun and he throws it a few times a game as well. As far as Dallas goes, Glynn Academy goes. Dallas took them to the state championship game in 2015. He is so shifty and he really showcased his ability to turn the corner and accelerate when Scout saw him. He is tough to deal with in space and he is very tough. Dallas is committed to Miami and he could end up at slot receiver or defensive back. He would love a shot at quarterback in Coral Gables (Fla.). -Simmons

ATH Braylon Sanders, Hoganville (Ga.) Callaway, 2017

There is not much Sanders does not do well. He is an explosive athlete. The only thing he could have done more of in the game Scout saw was — get the ball more. He has big, strong hands, he can work on the outside or in the slot, and he is a pretty good defensive back too. He has grown, he is filling out, and he could be a steal for someone. His offer list does not reflect his talent. Sanders currently likes Georgia, Colorado State, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. -Simmons

LB Nolan Smith, Savannah (Ga.) Calvary Day, 2019

Smith played linebacker, defensive end and running back. He is only a sophomore, and he immediately passes the eye test. He first shined at running back in this game throwing numerous defenders to the ground with his nasty stiff arm. He also made a couple of plays behind the line of scrimmage and pressured the quarterback a handful of times. Smith is an early four star on Scout and he has offers from Georgia, Miami, South Carolina and Tennessee. The Bulldogs lead early. -Simmons

OL Keiondre Jones, Hoganville (Ga.) Callaway, 2019

Jones is a man-child. He is a sophomore with huge hands, a size 18 shoe, and someone who can dominate up front. He can get to the second level, he flashed a nice punch and he drove his man off the ball. He still has some developing to do as an offensive lineman, but it is easy to see why he has a long, impressive offer list. Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida and Georgia among others have offered. -Simmons

RB Brian Snead, Seffner (Fla.) Armwood, 2018

Snead, a Scout 300 prospect, is a load in the offensive backfield that does a nice job of lowering his pads and running with a purpose, and that was on full display when I saw him play on Oct. 7. He racked up over 100 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, flashing impressive vision and acceleration from the get-go. He also backed up his reputation as a reliable pass catcher with three caches for nearly 40 yards. This Ohio State Buckeyes commit is difficult to bring down on initial contact as well. -Bender

CB Jalen Patterson, Citra (Fla.) North Marion, 2018

It's no surprise that Miami and others wasted no time going all in with this do-it-all prospect out of Marion County. Patterson shows good anticipation and closing speed out of his breaks, but is also a hard-nosed prospect that plays with that dog in him. I had a front row seat to his team's matchup with Chaminade-Madonna back on Oct. 14, and he certainly didn't disappoint after accumulating multiple tackles and two interceptions, including one he returned for nearly 70 yards. Patterson is committed to Mark Richt's Miami Hurricanes. -Bender

DT Malcolm Lamar, Seffner (Fla.) Armwood, 2018

Lamar is a young man in the trenches that's really starting to skyrocket up recruiting big boards. He checks in with that undeniable size, length and frame at nearly 6-foot-5, 255 pounds, but is now matching it with impressive hand use and tenacity. I attended his game back on Oct. 7, and he was a headache to deal with for all four quarters. Lamar continues to flash that passion and confidence as well. Florida, Tennessee, Miami, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Mississippi State highlight his offer sheet, but keep an eye on the childhood favorite Gators. -Bender

ATH Duran Bell Jr., Tampa (Fla.) Hillsborough, 2017

Bell is a crafty runner that also possesses that versatility to make a splash in the receiving game. Not the biggest in stature, but shows good field vision to weave in and out of clutter. I was just on hand for his three touchdown, 100-yard performance on Oct. 21, so his stellar play is still fresh in my mind. Bell is more fast than quick, but is certainly capable of sticking his foot in the dirt and providing that head and shoulder shake. He's more of a slasher that flashes impressive cutback ability in the open field. He remains all in South Florida, but plans to take multiple official visits once the season comes to a close. -Bender

DE Zachary Carter, Tampa (Fla.) Hillsborough, 2017

Carter is a physical freak that has strong-side defensive end written all over him, but it should be interesting to see how he fills out after diving into a college strength and conditioning program. He'll likely be playing closer to 280-290 pounds before his collegiate career comes to a close, so his versatility will allow the Gators to move him up and down the defensive line. He anticipates along the defensive front, flashing active hands and timing his jump to deflect the football, but also does a good job of diagnosing screens and getting out in space. Carter holds his own, sets the edge, and plays with a whole lot of effort as well. He remains 100 percent committed to Florida, but is not ruling out the possibility of officially visiting the hometown South Florida Bulls. Carter is all in with the Gators. -Bender

WR Joshua Ali, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna, 2017

I recently came away impressed by the reliability and crisp route running from Joshua Ali, a three-star wide receiver who's piled up double-digit Power Five offers over the past year. Ali is one wide receiver that glides and moves effortlessly when navigating in the open field. He does a good job of sticking his foot in the dirt when getting into his breaks and making cuts, and really keeps defenders on their toes by not giving away his route. Ali, who's more of a possession receiver with his ability to work underneath and make defenders miss, also does a nice job of adjusting and tracking the football over his shoulder. Ali is committed to the Wildcats, but is also planning to officially visit Utah, NC State and Pittsburgh. -Bender

LB Darius Hodge, Wake Forest (N.C.), 2017

The Wake Forest (N.C.) senior inside linebacker, who is committed to NC State, has made a smooth transition after playing exclusively defensive end last season. He is very physical and strong. Against Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield, Hodge showed the ability to read and react to plays quickly. He is also athletic and can play sideline to sideline. The Wake Forest defender had ten tackles, four tackles for loss and a sack against the Wolverines and proved to be the best player on the field that night. -Clark

RB Zamir White, Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland, 2018

The Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland standout showed why he is the top-ranked 2018 running back in the country against Southern Pines (N.C.) Pinecrest. Although there were nine or sometimes even ten people in the box, White finished with 23 carries for 173 yards and two touchdowns. He also blocked extremely well and served as a valuable decoy on numerous big plays for his teammates. He is the total package at the running back position and truly a rare talent. He has great, size, speed, quickness and instincts. It is early in his recruitment, but Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Carolina are some of the main schools in the mix. -Clark

RB Syheam McQueen, Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland, 2019

The sophomore Scotland running back is well on his way to having a breakout season. He ran very hard all night and constantly punished Pinecrest defenders. McQueen showed good speed and quickness. He also caught the ball well out of the backfield and was a valuable blocker on several plays. He recently picked up his first two offers from South Carolina and NC State and many more are on the way. -Clark

S Jaylin Dickerson, Southern Pines (N.C.) Pinecrest, 2017

The Southern Pines (N.C.) Pinecrest senior safety and South Carolina commit was all over the field against Scotland. Dickerson was great against the run and pass. He made big play after big play when his team need it and seemed to get stronger as the game went on. He was very physical, but also showed good speed and quickness. Dickerson will have a chance to be a good one for the Gamecocks. -Clark


OLB Louis Acceus, Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph, 2017

Acceus is the No. 36 outside linebacker in the 2017 class, and he showed why North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, Maryland and Rutgers (Dec. 2 official visit) are on him so heavily. The 6-foot 1/2, 206-pound Acceus fills run gaps, is a impressive with his speed and acceleration in blitzing, chases plays down from behind and he can get to either sideline to cut off a play. He is also good in coverage with his depth. -Dohn

OT Micah Clark, Holmdel (N.J.) St. John Vianney, 2017

Clark, who is commmitted to Rutgers, is already the No. 44 prospect in the nation, so a lot was expected during an in-person evaluation. And Clark, who is 6-foot-5, 255 pounds, did not disappoint. His athleticism is off the charts, and he is so explosive and quick, he could play 3-technique in college. However, he is an offensive lineman and he showed much-improved technique. He stays on blocks better in the running game and he is patient and sits in his base in pass protection. As a January enrollee, he will push for a starting job at Rutgers in 2017. -Dohn

WR Aron Cruickshank, Brooklyn Erasmus Hall, 2018

Cruickshank was an unknown heading into the early part of October but he is leaving with heavy interest from several schools after Scout saw him play. The 5-10, 165-pound Cruickshank plays quarterback for Erasmus Hall, but projects as a slot receiver. He has great tight space quickness and a sensational burst. He changes directions well and he is elusive. He plays with very good balance. He is also smart in working out at receiver at times during practice and in his spare time. Ohio State, Michigan, Stanford, Syracuse and Rutgers are now each on him. -Dohn

OG Bryan Felter, Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic, 2020

Starting on the offensive line as a freshman is impressive enough, but Felter is doing it in one of the toughest conferences in the nation for Bergen Catholic. The 6-3, 285 Felter fires off the ball quickly and he is powerful. He drives his legs while run blocking, and he remains engaged. He has the foot speed to pull and he is also solid in pass protection. He made visits to Rutgers and Penn State this season, and he could develop into a Scout 300 player as he matures. -Dohn

OT Matt Jones, Brooklyn Erasmus Hall, 2018

Jones, the No. 132 prospect in the 2018 class, is making the transition from defensive lineman to offensive tackle, and his work is paying off. He bends well and he is able to win the leverage battle. He has a lot of natural strength, and once he engages the defensive end, he is in complete control. His length helps him on the edge. Ohio State looks to be in the driver's seat, but he wants to make a number of visits in the offseason. His offer list includes Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Nebraska, Penn State, Michigan and Rutgers. -Dohn

OLB Zihir Lacewell, Staten Island (N.Y.) Tottenville, 2018

Lacewell is the No. 17 outside linebacker in the 2018 class, and his ceiling is sky high. He is 6-3, 195 pounds, and he runs extremely well. He is a better receiver than linebacker right now, but his ability to run and change direction, mixed in with his frame, makes him a stellar prospect. Pittsburgh, Maryland, Temple and Rutgers offered, but come the spring, Lacewell will be one of those players who seemingly picks up an offer every day. -Dohn

RB Khalan Laborn, Virginia Beach (Va.) Bishop Sullivan, 2017

The Virginia Beach (Va.) Bishop Sullivan senior running back is one of the most dynamic players in the country. Laborn, who is a member of the Scout 100 and committed to Florida State, was great against Olney (Md.) Good Counsel. Despite facing eight to nine men in the box the entire game, he finished with 20 carries for 150 yards and two scores. He showed great speed and quickness. Laborn was effective running between tackles and on the outside. In a game loaded with Division I prospects, he was by far the best player on the field. -Clark

DE Joshua Paschal, Olney (Md) Good Counsel, 2017

The Olney (Md.) Good Counsel senior defensive end was a force coming off the edge against Bishop Sullivan. He was explosive and showed quick hands. Paschal also played with good leverage and power. He was virtually unblockable all night. He has scholarship offers from across the country, but has narrowed his focus to Oklahoma, Maryland, Tennessee, USC and Notre Dame. -Clark


RB Lew Nichols, Southfield (Mich.), 2019

Nichols had a huge game when we saw him against Oak Park, rushing for 265 yards and two touchdowns and earning an offer from Central Michigan, who was at the game. Other schools will undoubtedly be on board once they see his film. -Trieu

LB Lorenzo McCaskill, Southfield (Mich.), 2017

A Cincinnati commit, McCaskill was all over the field for the Warriors. He is an aggressive, hard-charging kid with a great nose for the ball. The Bearcats are getting a steal here. -Trieu

CB Donovan Johnson, Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech, 2017

Most of the focus coming into the first Cass Tech-King showdown was on the state's top two prospects, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Ambry Thomas matching up outside, but Johnson stole the show scoring two long touchdowns and showing the blazing speed that allowed him to win fastest man at The Opening in the summer. Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Penn State and Arizona are among the programs trying to add that speed to their roster. -Trieu

S Deandre Square, Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech, 2018

Square was the most active defender on the field in that King game. He had quite a few tackles, a sack and an interception. Michigan State, Wisconsin, LSU and others have offered him and he is one of the Midwest's best in the junior class. -Trieu

S Jaylen Kelly-Powell, Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech, 2017

Kelly-Powell got the job of matching up man to man with Thomas in the first matchup and did a really nice job, showing once again that he can fit into many roles come college. Michigan leads over Alabama, Wisconsin, Nebraska and others on his list. -Trieu

OL Jordan Reid, Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech, 2017

A Michigan State commit, Reid had a strong game against King. He is a good athlete who can pull, move and block in space and also made some plays on defense. -Trieu

WR Jaylen Harris, Cleveland (OH) Heights, 2017

This season has seen Jaylen Harris go from basketball playing athlete to true wide receiver. The route running has improved by leaps and bounds, and he is a threat to do far more than just run by defensive backs and jump over them. He can go across the middle and make tough catches, and increased strength has made him a tough blocker. Saw him earlier this month, and he must be doubled. Has a final five of Alabama, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State and Tennessee. -Greene

DE Tyreke Smith, Cleveland (OH) Heights, 2018

This kid is coming on as fast as any football player in Ohio, and Tyreke Smith is in the process of becoming a force off the edge. Smith has not played football since sixth grade, so he is very raw as a player. He also missed a few games with an injury, but seeing him last week against East Cleveland Shaw, it's apparent that he is figuring it out. The size (6-foot-4, 240-pounds) and athletic ability is elite. and when Smith reaches his potential he's going to be a force. Holds offers from Michigan State, Penn State, Tennessee, UCLA, and others. -Greene

LB Josh Chandler, Canton (OH) McKinley, 2018

This is clearly one of the top junior linebackers in Ohio, and even though the size is not ideal, Josh Chandler makes plays. He dominated his team's big win over Massillon Jackson, and was easily the best player on the field. He is less than 6-foot tall, but his instincts are great and he can run sideline to sideline. Chandler recently landed his first offer, from Kent State, and is receiving interest from Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Indiana. -Greene

C John Spellacy, Cleveland St. Ignatius, 2017

As the leader of one of the best offensive lines in Ohio, John Spellacy is the one responsible for all the protection calls and blocking assignments. His coach raves about his intelligence and leadership, and Spellacy makes no mistakes on the field. I saw him dominate a good defensive line in Canton GlenOak. He is a center only at the next level, and 6-foot-1 might be a stretch, but this kid is strong as heck and tough as nails. Spellacy is committed to East Carolina. -Greene

TE Andrew White, Canton (OH) GlenOak, 2018

As one of the top junior tight end prospects in Ohio, Andrew White has gotten better over the course of the season. His blocking has improved, and although he plays for a running team he had a long pass reception against top ranked Cleveland St. Ignatius showing his speed. White already holds one offer from Akron, and is drawing interest from most of the Big Ten. -Greene

OG Nolan Rumler, Akron (OH) Hoban, 2019

After impressing greatly as a freshman starter on a state championship team, sophomore Nolan Rumler has continued to get better. He is powerful at the point of attack, and has great feet for one so young. His pass protection continues to get better, but he just mauls people in the running game. Loved what I saw this month in his team's win over Cleveland Cathedral Latin. Rumler holds an offer from Michigan, and will visit Notre Dame this weekend. -Greene


ILB Anthony Hines, Plano (Texas) East, 2017

Hines and his Panthers teammates squared off against Denton (Texas) Guyer on the last day of September, but we qualify for him for this month’s selections, because his game fell in the window from the time this feature was published in September and again in October. They were not able to win the game, but Hines was a major factor, making a few wow plays and showing his sideline-to-sideline speed tracking down an elite stable of running backs. He has taken official visits to Texas A&M, Penn State, Florida and UCLA. He will be an early enrollee. -Powers

RB Noah Cain, Denton (Texas) Guyer, 2019

Cain will be in the running to be considered as one of the top-rated prospects in the Class of 2019, nationwide. He has been collecting many offers with the latest major ones coming in from Nebraska and LSU. He wears No. 7 in honor of his favorite college player Leonard Fournette, but I think his game compares more favorably to an Ezekiel Elliott, who was rated in the Top 50 nationally coming out of St. Louis (Mo.) John Burroughs. Cain shows good cut-back ability and the ability to cap his runs off by standing in the end-zone. -Powers

OT Brey Walker, Southmoore (Okla.), 2018

The No. 1 rated offensive tackle in the the 2018 cycle is a mammoth player who is already committed to play his college ball for the Oklahoma Sooners. He still has Georgia and Alabama trying to get him to take a look at the SEC. Walker is big and strong and has the look of of the prototype left tackle. He had a great night in a win over Owasso (Okla.) High and did not allow his man to get pressure on his quarterback and was able to hold and maintain the edge. In run blocking he cleared lanes and his power was evident. -Powers

DE Max Wright, Katy (Texas) Taylor, 2018

Wright has offers from pretty much every major program across the country and versatility is the name of the game for the 6-foot-4, 255-pounder. He lines up at defensive end in a 3-4 scheme and is a prospect who can get pressure on the quarterback, but is also very solid against the run. He plays hard on every snap and is able to make an impact. The offense has to take him into account on each and every play. Against Katy (Texas) Morton Ranch he was tasked with playing a more disciplined game as the team was running a veer-based scheme and he passed the test. -Powers

TE Mustapha Muhammad, Fort Bend (Texas) Ridge Point, 2018

There is no doubt that Muhammad will be one of the best in the nation at the tight end position in the 2018 class. He has great length and size at position and looks taller and thicker than his 6-foot-4, 213-pound Nike Camp check-in stats that are listed in his profile currently. He reminds me a lot of a Jermaine Gresham style of tight end, who is a great receiver at the position, but also has the size and strength to stand up to powerful defenders when he lines up as an in-line guy. He has many of the top offers like Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Miami (FL), Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M and more. -Powers

OT Walker Little, Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal, 2017

This is the second tine we got to Scout the five-star offensive tackle in action. He was put a bit more to the test in a match-up against Fort Worth (Texas) All Saints that featured some very solid defensive ends. It was great to see him pushed more and he used his techniques and footwork to his advantage. Many times he is just able to dominate the man across from him and he definitely had some dominating moments in the game. Still, in an emotional battle he played under control and he is what you expect a five-star OT to be. Little is considering offers from schools like Florida State, Georgia, Ole Miss, Stanford and Texas. -Powers

S Atanza Vongor, South Grand Prairie (Texas), 2018

One of the top overall recruits in the state of Texas' junior class, Vongor is an elite safety prospect and No. 59 overall in the latest 2018 Scout 300. The 6-foot-1, 194-pounder is a great striker and also flashes the closing speed you want to see at the back end of the defense. In an Oct. 20 blowout win at Irving Nimitz, Vongor played in all three phases for South Grand Prairie, a talent-laden Class 6A program near Dallas. Vongor has picked up early offers from across the country, including Alabama, Georgia, Houston, TCU, Texas A&M, Baylor, Clemson, Iowa, Michigan, Duke, Indiana, Iowa State, and SMU. -Brooks

ATH Lakendrick VanZandt, Henderson (Texas), 2017

VanZandt ran for almost 200 yards in a big 36-28 win at Class 4A powerhouse and arch rival Carthage on the first weekend of October. The 6-foot, 196-pound VanZandt primarily plays running back for Henderson High, but is expected to transition to the secondary in college. He's played safety and corner before, and as a TCU pledge, he should fit well in the Frogs' 4-2-5 scheme in a safety spot, whether at the back end or the hybrid in-the-box role. VanZandt is an instinctive player with good acceleration and a sturdy build for a skill-position prospect. He's the No. 8 athlete in the state of Texas for 2017 and a high three-star prospect. -Brooks

RB Noah Cain, Denton (Texas) Guyer, 2019

The 5-foot-11, 203-pound Cain has emerged very early in his high school career as one of the top prospects in the Lone Star State's 2019 class. In 2015, he ran for more than 1,000 yards to earn Scout's Freshman of the Year for the Midlands Region. In eight games this fall, he's eclipsed 1,000 yards and scored 15 touchdowns. I saw him twice in October and he was great both times. Cain possesses a prototype running back build. He runs with good pad level, patience, and power. He's a run-finisher and gains plenty of yards of contact. Cain has more than a dozen offers, including LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, UCLA, and several others. Cain is originally from Baton Rouge, La. He took an unofficial visit the weekend of Oct. 8 to Miami. -Brooks

ATH Trestan Ebner, Henderson (Texas), 2017

Like his aforementioned teammate (VanZandt), Ebner is a longtime TCU pledge. In fact, the duo committed on the same day (June 8) to the Horned Frogs. The 6-foot, 188-pound Ebner starts on both sides of the ball for Henderson High at receiver and safety. Like VanZandt, he's also expected to play in the secondary once he's in Fort Worth. Ebner has great top-end speed, as evidenced by his laser-timed 4.40-second 40 in March from The Opening Dallas. Ebner is a very athletic player who has a knack for making the big play regardless of where he's aligned. Scout ranks Ebner as the No. 10 athlete in the Lone Star State's senior class. -Brooks

ATH Dayo Odeyingbo, Carrollton (Texas) Ranchview, 2017

Odeyingbo, a Vanderbilt commit, is what you would call a "jumbo athlete." The majority of his offers have come for defensive end, and that's where he's expected to play in college. However, I really like him as a tight end prospect. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder starts at left tackle and defensive end for Ranchview High, a Class 4A school near Dallas which I saw Oct. 13 beat Dallas Carter 31-23. He's also played tight end, receiver, and outside linebacker during his high school career. Odeyingbo possesses an elite frame and enough athleticism to bend the edge as a pass-rusher, though he's still raw from a technical standpoint. Odeyingbo's ceiling is high as he projects to the college level, where he'll reunite with his older brother Dare, a defensive end at Vanderbilt. Scout ranks Odeyingbo as the No. 6 athlete in the state's senior class. -Brooks

DE Jarell Cherry, Dallas Carter, 2018

The 6-foot-2 1/2, 220-pound Cherry is one of the top edge defender prospects in the Lone Star State. Cherry projects to the high-major level as an even-front weak-side end or an odd-front hybrid outside linebacker. Cherry, who I saw in the aforementioned Ranchview/Carter contest on Oct. 13, is great in backside pursuit and flashes good closing speed when in the open field, whether chasing down the run or as a pass-rusher. Cherry has already garnered a hand full of offers, including Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas Tech, and SMU. Carter High has produced numerous well-known players in the past 30 years, including Jessie Armstead, Michael Crabtree, and others. -Brooks


QB Colson Yankoff, Coeur d'Alene (Idaho), 2018

An early commitment to Oregon, Yankoff is the top prospect in Idaho in the 2018 class.  Against Lake City (Idaho), he had another big game, running for three touchdowns and throwing for two more. Yankoff did it with Oregon assistant David Yost on the sideline watching.  Yankoff is an optimal fit for Oregon's spread offense, with the ability to find receivers and spread the ball around but also make plays with his legs.  He's got pretty good speed and can take a hit, but also shows good patience in going through his reads instead of just quickly tucking and running.  We've seen a lot of Yankoff in camp settings, but he's at his best on Friday nights where he can show his dual-threat ability. -Huffman

CB Elijah Gates, Buena Park (Calif.), 2017

Gates is one of the top corners in the West in the 2017 class, but also plays receiver and returns kicks and punts for the Coyotes. Gates had a 90-yard kickoff return in Buena Park's game with La Canada (Calif.) St. Francis and had three catches while not giving up a completion all night.  He does a great job of pressing his man when he needs to and he plays pretty physically and with an edge to him.   Oregon, TCU and UCLA are standing out to him right now while Cal is trying to get him to join two of his teammates. -Huffman

OL Alex Forsyth, West Linn (Ore.), 2017

Forsyth plays on both sides for West Linn and against Tigard (Ore.) he made as big of an impact on defense as he did on offense. The Oregon commit helped paved the way for the winning touchdown drive in the final minutes, then had a sack to thwart a potential-tying Tigard drive the following drive. His bread and butter, though, is on the offensive line and he's a versatile lineman, playing tackle for West Linn but he can play inside and is excellent in run blocking. -Huffman

ATH Treshaun Harrison, Seattle (Wash.) Garfield, 2018

One of the bigger revelations this fall is Harrison, who's becoming one of the better two-way players in Washington.  Against Rainier Beach, he went over 100 yards in both rushing and receiving, with 101 yards running it and 101 yards in receiving, scoring a pair of touchdowns on the ground and one through the air. Harrison also made some big hits on defense and showed that he can play on either side of the ball, with his offers from Missouri, UCLA and Washington State coming as an athlete. -Huffman

ATH Braden Lenzy, Tigard (Ore.), 2018

Lenzy is one of the top two-way players in the Northwest in the 2018 class, with offers as a cornerback and as a receivers.  Against West Linn (Ore.), he had a touchdown catch and also helped keep the high-powered passing game of West Linn to one of their lowest performances of the year.  Lenzy is a real instinctual player who breaks on the ball quick and had active hands.  As a receiver, he's got soft hands and is pretty shifty when he needs to be in space.  The four-star has offers from California, Oregon, Oregon State, Purdue, UCLA and Washington State early on. -Huffman

WR Devon Cooley, Buena Park (Calif.) 2018

We first saw Cooley at the UCLA Elite Camp in June and he ended up with an offer that day.  We saw him pads for the first time against St. Francis and he didn't disappoint at all.  The four-star went over 100 yards and had a pair of touchdowns.  On one of the scores, a slant he took to the house, he showed great burst and quickness plus top end speed.  On the second, it was up and over a defensive back, showing great body control and hands.  Besides the Bruins, Cooley has offers from Colorado and Colorado State. -Huffman

DB Deommodore Lenoir, Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral, 2017

Lenoir has played this whole season with a chip on his shoulder and like he had something to prove. He's a fierce competitor and plays as hard as anyone you'll find. Known more as a shut down cover corner, Lenoir has been a huge impact player on the offensive side of the ball as a running back, receiver and in the return game. In a game against league rival Cathedral, Lenoir was the star of stars in a game that had double digit players with offers. He eventually went out of the game because of leg cramps but not before scoring four touchdowns. Lenoir is an Oregon commit but could take a few trips and said Michigan TCU, UCLA and USC are all involved here. -Biggins

DB Jaylon Redd, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.), 2017

Redd will play corner in college but his impact has been at running back this season and he has been electric all year. His Cougar squad is 8-0 and he's a big reason for that. Redd is good for at least 2-3 game changing plays a game and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. In a game televised on Fox Sports against an Upland team they hadn't beat in five years, Redd scored five touchdowns, one on a punt return, one a kickoff return, one receiving and two rushing. Redd is a solid Oregon commit right now. -Biggins

DB Brandon McKinney, Orange Lutheran (Calif.), 2017

It's tough to get one pick-six in a game but McKinney returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a game against Anaheim (Calif.) Servite last week. McKinney is one of those guys who is always around the football and has tremendous instincts. He's a ball hawk who can cover, be physical in run support and has great ball skills. The Washington commit should see the field early in college. -Biggins

DL Jacob Callier, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, 2017

The Braves lost a tough one to a very good Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei over the weekend team but no one was better on the field than Callier. The talented rush end was in the backfield all game long, caused three holding penalties on the opposing tackle trying to block him and had several hits on the quarterback. Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii and San Diego State are recruiting him the hardest and Washington is showing new interest as well. -Biggins

QB Tristan Gebbia, Calabasas (Calif.), 2017

Gebbia had a record setting night in the Coyotes big win over Newbury Park. The Nebraska commit was 18-23 for 295 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for two more scores as well. The yards and touchdowns put Gebbia over the 10,000 yard and 100 touchdown mark for his career, only the 8th player in state history to do so. -Biggins

RB Miles Reed, Corona (Calif.) Centennial, 2017

The Huskies can always run the football and this year's workhorse is Miles Reed. Reed has had several big games this year with his biggest coming in a 77-20 win over Roosevelt where he rushed for 222 yards on just 11 carries and scored four touchdowns. Reed has great quickness, is a powerful kid and shows the toughness to run inside or outside. Hawaii, Montana and Washington State have all offered. -Biggins

OL Austin Jackson, Phoenix (Ariz.) North Canyon, 2017

Austin Jackson might be one of the quietest five-star prospects in recent memory, but his game is anything but silent. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound offensive tackle has good length and, in a victory against Arcadia (Ariz.), kept his feet moving in pass protection and showed improvement as a run blocker while also playing both ways. He is set to take his first official visit this weekend to Oregon, and also has the likes of Arizona State, Michigan, Nebraska and USC high on his list of suitors. -Angulo

WR Solomon Enis, Phoenix (Ariz.) North Canyon, 2018

The son of former Penn State star and NFL first-round draft selection Curtis Enis is making a name for himself in the desert, proving to be one of the more electric juniors in the state of Arizona. Solomon Enis has a good build and, against Arcadia (Ariz.), rushed for over 200 yards while proving to be a nuisance through the air as well. He has great body control when going up for the ball in traffic and can make defenders miss in open space. He picked up his first offers from Arizona, UCLA and Vanderbilt earlier this month and has also been hearing from Arizona State and Washington. -Angulo

OL Tommy Brown, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, 2018

Mater Dei's explosive offense needed a shutdown offensive tackle to provide its young quarterback time to find receivers down field and coach Bruce Rollison has certainly found that with Tommy Brown. The 6-foot-7 prospect sealed the edge well on run plays against powerhouse Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco and, despite his length, was able to bend enough to keep defenders in front of him in pass protection. Brown recently visited Notre Dame for the game against Stanford, landed offers from Michigan and Mississippi State, and told Scout that Alabama remains as a dream offer. -Angulo

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, 2018

The youngest of the St. Brown brothers could very well be the most talented receiver in the family. Amon-Ra displayed tremendous hands against Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, ran some great routes and was a tough cover all night for one of the better secondaries you'll find in high school football. St. Brown holds offers from every corner of the country, but told Scout recently that the likes of California, Michigan, USC and Notre Dame are all making a strong push, with a visit to LSU a possibility next summer. -Angulo

CB Quentin Lake, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, 2017

There might not be a more versatile defensive back in Southern California than Quentin Lake, who slides around the secondary and fills so many roles for a talented Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei defense. Lake drew the task of covering Washington commit Terrell Bynum of Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco and did his part in the second half, keeping the shifty receiver within arms' length and sticking with him through his breaks. Lake has committed to UCLA. -Angulo

DE Jaelan Phillips, Redlands (Calif.) East Valley, 2017

This is what five-star defensive ends look like. Jaelan Philips of Redlands (Calif.) East Valley has been racking up the sacks, piling on a handful more in a blowout victory last week against Rialto (Calif.) Eisenhower. He has been rushing off the edge from a standup position, but also been covering a ton of ground at outside linebacker, even returning an interception for a score against Eisenhower. Phillips has committed to UCLA. -Angulo

RB Stephen Carr, Fontana (Calif.) Summit, 2017

Stephen Carr had plenty of expectations leading into the 2017 season rated as one of the top overall prospects in the country. With multiple games rushing for more than 200-yards, Carr has been able to live up to the hype. With tremendous lateral footworks and burst, Carr slaloms through holes and continues to carry Summit to a CIF first. round playoff bye. Against Grand Terrace earlier this month, Carr was held in check during the first quarter with limited yards on three carries. However, Carr went on to carry the ball 30 more times the next three quarters to accumulate 195-yards and two scores in a 31-28 win. This following a performance at Fontana High School where he had five touchdowns and 420-yards of offense. Two of those scores came on pass receptions while another was a 97-yard kick off return. Carr remains committed to USC, although he will likely take official visits to schools like Michigan, Washington and possibly Notre Dame. -Martinez

CB Elijah Hicks, La Mirada (Calif.), 2017

In addition to cornerback for La Mirada, Hicks has contributed to his team as a wide receiver and kick returner this season. Hicks is rarely tested on defense in the passing game, but he still manages to make an impact in run support. Against Artesia, Hicks did not hesitate to defeat blocks and contain the run. Hicks has good height and length, which help him to extend his arms and control wide outs off the line of scrimmage in both running and passing situations. Against Artesia, Hicks scored one touchdown as a receiver on a intermediate passing route. He had another opportunity to score on a punt return earlier in the game, but lacked the speed and quickness to completely allude tacklers in the open field. A few days after officially visiting South Bend (Ind.), Hicks committed to Notre Dame Oct. 18 over scholarship offers from schools like UCLA, USC, Michigan, Oregon and several others. -Martinez

WR Chase Williams, Corona (Calif.) Roosevelt, 2018

Last spring, Williams established himself as one of the most prolific wide outs in the 2018 class. This season, Williams has cemented his reputation as being a fundamentally superior player with a wealth of production. Against Ayala this season, Williams scored on the first offensive play from scrimmage. Running a slant route, Williams caught the ball and took it 70-yards for the score. He would go onto to score on another difficult over the shoulder reception in the back of the end zone. While Williams isn't the most dynamic receiver in terms of pure speed and short area quickness, his route running, awareness and ball skills are impeccable. Williams is currently entertaining scholarship offers from USC, UCLA, Washington, Cal and Washington State.-Martinez

DE Kayvon Thibodeaux, Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey, 2018

While Thibodeaux is one of the youngest prospects on the recruiting radar in Southern California, he may be the most intriguing. Even as a sophomore, both Serra and Hawkins High Schools chose to run very little at Thibodeaux. Against Hawkins, he effectively took away one side of the field. With his height and wing span, Thibodeaux even impacts the passing game at the high school level. On offense, Thibodeaux made minimal impact, but as a tight end, he is also rarely targeted. Against Hawkins he had a handful of tackles, two for losses. While he is physically imposing, Thibodeaux is young and still raw. At times, he occupies blocks and hovers at the line of scrimmage instead of using his physically gifts to dominate at the point of contact. Thibodeaux was invited to the U.S. Army All-Amrian Bowl this month and is entertaining scholarship offers from Michigan, Cal, USC, UCLA among others. -Martinez
