6/9 Camp Recap
I did a quick camp recap but it was pretty much me being exhausted and tired from covering the camp. Here are the high points of last Sunday as we get ready for this Sunday's camp full of major talent.Alven Johnson is legit. He was the star of the camp at DL, not to say there were not other quality DL there. Johnson is raw, raw, raw, and is just a country strong kid. He's not cut in the chest, shoulders, or anywhere that looks like he's in a serious weight program. That part makes me think of where he could go and become once on campus. If a prospect is not topped out by a high school he has room to grow. Johnson has room to grow and despite him thinking he's more of a DE, he's going to be 270+ after a year. Johnson at DE was a powerful rusher with a great first step, but not elite like some of the lighter pass rushers as Trace Ford last year. The difference is Johnson had 30+ pounds and 2+ inches in height to some of those prospects. In a 3-4, Johnson will anchor the strong side and give a plus pass rush once his technique is refined.Johnson at DT showed an elite quickness for the interior. I've seen James Lynch dominate The Opening camp at 6-3+ 275 and felt I was watching a less polished version during the camp. Johnson was able to pop off the line and then swim move past the guard or center before they were out of their stance. Playing him at the 3, i4, 5, and 7 like Lynch will be fun to watch.D'Marion Alexander is bouncy. I mean, non-stop energy bouncing across the field. If I nicknamed him, it would be Tigger from Winnie the Pooh for his bounding. He'd run at LB and after the player instead of running back to position he'd leap back to the position. At DE he'd do his rep and take 4-5 leaps after and bound back to the line. Saying this, his athleticism is off the charts and where he ends up is anyone's guess from LB to DE. He has the athleticism to play DE, but do you put the 6-3+ athlete at RUSH or does he continue to grow and you have a 6-5 DE or 6-5 OLB or 6-5 RUSH. Possibilities are pretty much mouth watering for his future.Brooks Harris out of West Monroe is comparable to Bryson Daily, but 2-3 inches taller and longer. Harris started out at safety and Snow soon sent him to Siravo who put him through the paces of LB drills. He did well enough to earn an offer and should be one to watch.2022 Denton Guyer LB/DE Vincent Paige is physically impressive and has a frame to continue to grow. He ran by after Siravo pulled him from the DE portion of camp just smiling. Paige seemed pretty pleased with the offer as well and SicEm365 will be reaching out for a full interview soon.

National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a SicEm365 rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the SicEm365 Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide SicEm365 readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

SicEm365 Rating

99-100: Elite national prospect (Five-star)

Considered one of the best prospects in the nation and a likely difference-maker at the collegiate level. Displays all of the physical skills to be a future All-American with potential to be an early-round NFL draft pick.

90-98: Elite state prospect (Four-star)

Considered one of the best 30-40 prospects in the state and a top 250 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to be a major early contributor at the collegiate level with high professional potential.

80-89: Quality prospect (Three-star)

Considered one of the best 100 prospects in the state and a top 500 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to develop into a contributor over the course of his college career. Has the ability to become a professional prospect over time with development.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)

Considered one of the top 250 prospects in the state. Has the physical skills to be a potential contributor at a D-1 program over the course of his collegiate career with significant development. Professional potential is low.

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Baylor and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Baylor and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
