Garden City CC Prospect Report

Garden City Community College looks poised to have a very strong season and is home to several FBS prospects.

Wide Receiver Brandon Snell. His skill set is tremendous and he very well could be the best junior college wideout in the country. Snell is one of the smoothest all-around athletes in the nation at the junior college level. He's a terrific route runner, powerful, explosive, and quick off the ball. In one instance during Friday's practice he made a terrific catch in traffic and then proceeded with an incredible spin move that left the entire defense in the dust.

Wide Receiver Monterio Burchfield. He's not as strong, powerful, or as thick as Snell but he's a very good prospect in his own right. He's taller with above average speed. His hands are top-notch and the best on the team. Burchfield had a snag on a pass that was thrown behind him in a crowd of defenders that left everyone impressed.

Offensive Tackle Jarek Smalley. He's the second best junior college offensive lineman in the region, only to Tyler Howell of Butler C.C. Smalley is a huge, massive body that punishes defensive ends with his power and brute strength. He doesn't have the quickness or length of Howell, but makes up for it with his overall physicality. He's a very large human being and a terrific pick-up for the Jayhawks.

Cornerback Jakarrie Washington. The former Wisconsin cornerback is a lock-down type player at the position with a lot of swagger. He's fearless and thinks he can't be stopped, and most of the time he isn't wrong. Washington moves well, has great change of direction, and excellent closing speed. Not the biggest cornerback in the world, but one not afraid to get into wideouts and get physical.

Cornerback Donald Warren. He doesn't have the size and physicality that Washington possesses, but he wins in the speed and overall athleticism category. He's an undersized player at the position but makes plays on the ball consistently.

Safety Sam Green. He had to sit out practice on Friday but his coaches gave him glowing remarks of his play, and it's easy to believe. He looks the part in every way, at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds. His speed has improved, he understands the game, and loves to hit. Green already has corralled a couple Pac-12 offers.

Safety Trevin Wiens. He caps off a tremendous secondary at Garden City and is a player worthy of FBS attention as well. Wiens and Green are going to put a lot of fear into wideouts going over the middle this season. He's considered the fastest player on the team, which comes as a surprise because of how thick and well put together he is. On the shorter side, but a prospect worth keeping an eye on.
