Scrimmage Notes 8/21
Starting to trickle in and the offense had a big day from all sources.OL gelling and moved the ball on the groundGerry Bohanon running ones predominantly with Blake Shapen getting some 1s and mostly 2s.Galvin/Newman/Gall/Miller/Phillips most effective and with the majority of the 1s reps.Sims as you can see from the BU social media clip has improved as a blocker and ran 1s.Ebner improvement is also noticeable in his running style and physicality.New wrinkles today with long shots to Tyquan Thornton and RJ Sneed from Bohanon. Defense got frustrated at times. First time this practice the offense has gotten the better of the defense the majority of the day.

Practice Notes: The Strength Of The Defense?
I know Ashley and Colt have their notes coming as well, but I had a surprising note come to me. It was about the secondary being the strength of practice so far. There could be some negative stances on this, but there are also sources saying the WRs have stepped it up during practice and Tyquan Thornton is standing out with his new size and strength on display. RJ Sneed remains reliable and makes every catch, but all are being blanketed by the secondary and the instruction of Kevin Curtis. Brian Stewart raised the bar and Curtis has run with it. The attention to watching film in the DB room is among the best on the team and it is paying off. The CBs are able to keep their heads inside during an outside press with their speed.Raleigh Texada continues to be leader at CB and best on the field. Kalon Barnes has a little more height, but is still in his progression as a CB. He has the physical tools, but he can get his feet flipped at times on breaks, which leads to open receivers where he has to rely on athleticism to make the play. Chateau Reed is the surprise as he continues to do things he shouldn't be able to do at his size and youth. Extreme athlete is what one person told me. AJ McCarty is still growing into the position, but will see time on the field early in the season to get ready for conference play. He as the speed and strength, but needs to trust technique. Alfahiym Walcott is another big CB moved from safety that is pushing Barnes and will see the field matched up on outside big WRs. Byron Hanspard and Brandon White are the two running 3rd now. White continues to move from CB and S and back after his injury. Mark Milton continues to improve as well and could slide to safety in an emergency. Zeke Brown, now on scholarship, isn't going to hurt you.Christian Morgan is up to 215 and ready for a breakout. Physicality has never been an issue and his athleticism is still there at this weight. JT Woods is also close to 200 and his length is allowing him to get to balls and make it more difficult for QBs to go over him. Mike Harris continues to improve and gain strength. Jairon McVea is solid and better in his new role and understands the entire secondary. Devin Neal is backing up Morgan and able to step in as a starter in 2022. Neal is not afraid of contact and improving in coverage and understanding of the defese. Walk-on Colby Delashaw returns from an ACL injury this season and has added good weight. He likely would have played last year before the injury on the final play in 2020 fall camp. Don't be surprised if he gets on the field against Texas State and Texas Southern besides special teams. Jalen Pitre, Lorando Johnson, Jr., and Devin Lemear are all going to make an impact, but I see them as more LB than S, but each has coverage skills and the ability to stop a TE or slot and as Mims from OU found out, don't think it'll be easy for you on a slip screen.Tevin Williams, Cisco Caston, Romario Noel, are built like Reed, Walcott, and Woods, and as athletic.

Post Practice Takeaways 4/17: Offense
Today wasn't as great weather wise, but the play picked up on both sides of the ball and improvement in certain areas was noticeable. I was joined by footballBob, Smoaky, and others to watch today and that was great as well. There will be a video of "Bob" and I talking about the practice and what we saw, but here is the written version.QBGerry Bohanon was out with the 1s first and he had his moments. I'd put him #2 of the QBs today. He still has his momenets where he isn't decisive or finding the right read. This is a new offense, but you'd still like him to bring this to the table as he learns.Jacob Zeno came out next and he's starting to separate himself a little here, IMO. His arm talent is there and he's making some reads while trusting his arm to get the ball there. Still room for improvement, but he had the best day.Blake Shapen seemed to regress a little today, but the arm talent is unquestionable. He's a gamer and tucked the ball a bit too much instead of going through the reads and pushing the ball upfield.Kyron Drones is going to be good. He is adjusting to the speed of the game and makes plays at times you shouldn't. He's more comfortable in 7 on 7 right now, but he did make solid throws in 11s.Brandon Bass is a walk-on and not afraid to force it in. He doesn't have the arm talent of the other 4 and is likely why he is a walk-on and he will be a great coach if that is where he wants to go after his career is done.RBTrestan Ebner has plenty of speed, but the area he still needs to work on is pass protection and trusting the blocks of the OL. He has a tendency to try to bounce it outside. He did better in the second half of practice when he cut inside and got extra yardage.Taye McWilliams was the second back out and he wasn't afraid to put his head in there and go for tough yards. He did have a pass go off his facemask that likely would have been a TD. He's going to be ready for the season and provide valuable carries/catches.Qualan Jones is a monster and he needs to show it more versus running upright. When he lowers his head he's a load. He did line up at FB for a few playsJonah White wasn't out there or I missed himSurprise of the day was Abram Smith getting plenty of carries and looking natural and smooth. I turned to "Bob" and said he may just end up at RB or playing both ways with the depth at LB. WRTyquan Thornton had a great TD and a few other playsRJ Sneed had one play and he got lit up at the end of it by JT Woods and they had some trash talk afterI didn't remember seeing EstradaJavon Gipson continue to impress me for a WR, not just freshman WRElijah Bean made some plays today and this was good to see as well. Seth Jones has sure hands and good speedJaylen Ellis gave up on a route Ithought would have gone for a TD, but otherwise was solid.Jackson Gleeson didn't do much todayGavin Holmes didn't practiceOLFirst team was LT Connor Galvin, Johncarlo Valentin, Xavier Newman, Micah Mazzccua, Gavin Byers Galvin was hobbled on a sprained left ankle and still solid to goodValentin had his moments of getting movement and then getting extended and beatenNewman was a bit better, but still not thereMazzccua surprised a couple of time as he was able to get movement and lock onto his manByers likely is the steal of the 2019 class for Baylor as he's going to be a good one as he maturesSecond OL was LT Elijah Ellis, Connor Heffernan, Casey Phillips, Grant Miller, Mose Jeffery Ellis is a mountain of a player and athletic. You see the flashes, but he still has struggles which should dissappear with age and experienceHeffernan has the feet, but needs the size and strength of agePhillips tried center and it was rough at times on snaps, but again, first time I've seen him there. Miller looked solid again. Not sure why he isn't at centerJeffery had his moments on run blocking, but pass blocking is likely at a guard levelThe OL overall is still a work in progress, but the learning they are doing by switching positions and groups is giving the staff a view of what they will become and what they need to work on for 2021. Finding the best five is the goal and developing the backups to step into a role if there is an injury.Defense later as well as the video of the breakdown

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.
