Assets: Tremendous size superior athleticism. Needs improvement: He needs to eventually learn to take a snap under center and he has a tendency to let his elbow drop on throws, causing the ball to sail high.
What was most impressive: He showed off his athleticism on the big stage playing against great competition.
Conclusion: He proved why he is the No. 1 ranked player by capturing the U.S. Army All-American Bowl most valuable player award. He will be deadly in the spread offense at the next level, especially running the read option.
Assets: Has great size and is a great athlete. Needs improvement: Needs to work on passes that require timing with the receivers.
What was most impressive: He also ran the read option to perfection and can make plays with his feet.
Conclusion: He will be the crown jewel of the Gophers recruiting class. Coach Tim Brewster has to be excited about building an offense around this guy.
Assets: He has great lateral movement and showed he will chase the ball all over the place.
Needs improvement: I'd like to see him to put on about ten pounds and work on getting a little stronger.
What was most impressive: Just his pursuit of the ball, even down field after the other team made a big gain.
Conclusion: The Hurricanes should be really excited about getting this guy out of Big 12 territory. He proved very worthy of his ranking in this game.
Assets: He is a tall, mobile quarterback with a quick release. Needs improvement: I would like to see him become a more vocal leader.
What was most impressive: The throw he made running all the way to the right side of the end zone then throwing across his body for an 11-yard completion was amazing.
Conclusion: This guy is an excellent pickup for the Tigers, and he should help bring other great players to help Missouri stay in the upper echelon of the Big 12.
Assets: Quick as a cat, and he is always around the ball.
Needs improvement: He is not the biggest corner and will need to get as strong as he can in order to battle the large receivers.
What was most impressive: He was very opportunistic on the muffed punt as he not only was in position to make the hit but he made the fumble recovery.
Conclusion: This kid is special and Longhorn fans will be very pleased with this elite player in Austin.
Assets: He is extremely strong, and has potential to kick and punt.
Needs improvement: I'm not a kicking expert, but I thought is operation time on the extra points was just a tad slow.
What was most impressive: His two punts hung in the air for a very long time. I wish I had a stop watch on them.
Conclusion: He should really shine and possibly break records at BYU kicking in the high altitude.
Assets: He is so fast coming off of the snap of the ball.
Needs improvement: Needs to add some size in order to help himself at the point of attack.
What was most impressive: He had one of only two sacks in the entire game.
Conclusion: He is a great pickup for the Sooners and still the top prospect in Texas in my eyes.
Assets: He has great hands. I saw it in practice and in the game. Needs improvement: I'd like to see him add some lower body size and strength. What was most impressive: He got deep twice and scored twice.
Conclusion: Charlie Weis and the Fighting Irish should be real happy with this kid coming to South Bend. He has a good chance to play as a freshman, and he will be under serious consideration for a bump in the rankings.
