Recruiting Recap: Chaparral v. Sabino
Chaparral (I have already seen Chaparral play but a few of them I have re-evaluated):
RB Kyle Williams - Listed at 5'9 180 and looks it. Got hurt in game versus Cactus I saw previously. Very quick and shifty with good change of direction. Cuts well and gets to full speed quickly. A very dangerous return man (2 teams refused to kick to him at all). Has rushed for 355 yards on just 36 carries and showed good hands out of the backfield with 6 catches for 157 yards. I still question his durability, he was hurt his entire junior season and has been taken out of both games I have seen him play in. He also has fumbled in both games I have seen him play in. I don't think he is a running back at the next level, maybe at a smaller school but I do think he could be a WR or even a CB at the D1 level.
FB Spencer Rothery – I said in last report I thought he was a JUCO player and I still think. Plays tough and fights for yardage but lacks ideal size and speed.
QB Nick Neuenfeldt – Big athletic kid with
LB/K Matt Boatman – Listed at 6'2 210 and looks more like he is 5'11 200. Plays tough and is always around the ball. Has 49 tackles and 4 sacks on the year (5 games). Good speed but not great. Plays with low pad level and tackles well. I could see at a small school maybe 1AA but probably D2 but I think he could be a good JUCO player. Also is a good kicker. Accurate from 45 and kicks between 5 yard line and goal line. Again not D1 material but solid.
OT Jake Gendreau – Listed at 6'4 290 and looks it. Still has some baby fat. I said in my last evaluation that he needed to work on his footwork, which is still believe. Played much better versus Sabino than Cactus, maybe because he played against slower DEs. 1AA at best, probable D2 or good JUCO prospect.
TE/P Trevor Hankins – Tall and lanky, 6'5 220. Former OT that has converted to TE this year. Played much better 3 games later, which shows he is learning but still needs to work on it. Can catch but catches with his body and not hi hands. Good JUCO candidate. Can boom punts and gets the ball to turn over, over 40 yard average.
SS Adam Bailey – 6'2 180. Will need to gain weight but has frame to do it. Plays around the ball, good speed but not great. Another kid I think is a JUCO prospect.
WR Vince Coleman – 5'10 180. Son of St. Louis Cardinals base stealer of the same name. Has been relegated to a backup role after catching 40 balls as a sophomore.
DE Rodney Shaw – 6'1 220. Too small but I like the way he plays. Quick off the ball and active. Hustles all over the field. I don't think he has the frame to put on much more weight.
CB Casey Lytle – 6'2 180 and looks it. Is long and moves well. Still a kid I want to evaluated more.
FB Brooks Reed – Listed at 6'3 215. Looks
thin but has a big frame. Has good speed. I would like to see him be a more
punishing blocker but I do see him as more of an H-back at the next level. Did
drop a couple of passes though. Good athlete. Has offers from
RB Glyndon Bolasky – 6'0 190. Has offers
WR Codi Harshman – 6'0 165. Decent speed but is thin. Good high school player but I see him as a JUCO prospect.
QB Justin Randall - Very small, 5'9 170. Throws good catchable ball. Has good speed when he tucks and runs. 50% completion rate and has 8 TDs versus 3 INTs. Size will be biggest obstacle.
