Eno Benjamin, Jeffrey Okudah and Baron Browning Named to 2017 Army Bowl Roster

Scout 300 prospects Eno Benjamin, Jeffrey Okudah and Baron Browning were all named to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl this week...

Tuesday: Eno Benjamin, Wylie East HS

  • HT: 5'9.5
  • WT: 203
  • Scout Rating: 104
  • Position Rating: 10 (RB)
  • Recruiting List: Committed to Iowa Hawkeyes
  • Analysis: Benjamin is a highly instinctive, high-volume running back who possesses big-play ability as well as workhorse production. Possesses exceptional feet with outstanding balance and lateral ability. Dangerous start-and-stop runner who maximizes yardage at the second level with cutback ability. Good at avoiding direct blows. Runs with a low pad level. Lacks ideal size but possesses good bulk and gains ample yardage after contact. Not a top-end burner, but plenty fast with good initial acceleration and burst in the first 10-15 yards. Benjamin is a monster-production back at a high level of high school football and translates very well to the Power Five conference level. - Gabe Brooks

Wednesday: Jeffrey Okudah, South Grand Prairie

  • HT: 6'2
  • WT: 190
  • Scout Rating: 11 
  • Position Rating: 1 (ATH)
  • Recruiting List: Ohio State, Oklahoma, Clemson, Georgia, Florida State, USC
  • Analysis: We really like Okudah's game because he's just a great all-around football player. SGP has lined him up in a number of different positions and he has played passionately at all of them. He will likely project out as a jumbo safety by the time he is done growing, but has the coverage skills and experience as a junior playing extensively at cornerback. He is long and muscular with great explosion. He can tackle well in space and tracks down faster backs with relative ease. Good coverage abilities as well as he spent a lot of time at cornerback and has the ability to play one-on-one coverage against some of the top receivers in the nation.

Thursday: Baron Browning, Kennedale

  • HT: 6'4
  • WT: 230
  • Scout Rating: 25
  • Position Rating: 2 (OLB)
  • Recruiting List: Alabama, Ohio State, Texas, TCU, UCLA
  • Analysis: Browning is a big and physical presence on the field, especially intimidating at the linebacker position where you just do not see many guys with his size playing standing up. He missed much of his sophomore season, but bounced back with a strong junior year that saw him pile up a ton of honors and accolades. He moves all around the Kennedale defense. He will play up on the line of scrimmage as an edge rusher and he will move to the middle to stop the run. He shows a high acumen for playing against the pass, which is rare for a linebacker with his size. Could play a range of positions: outside linebacker, middle backer or defensive end.
