The Opening Notes: OL and DL
The offensive and defensive lines had a really competitive day at the camp on Sunday. There were some standouts and some guys who could have performed a little bit better.-Reedy's Nathan Anderson was terrific once again in the one on one drills. He has elite feet and it allows him to consistently get back into plays even when he is beat on the initial move. He posted a 91.77 score with a 4.20 shuttle and a 5.01 40 time. These are elite numbers to go along with his 6'5 frame. Baylor has made him a priority in the class but he did tell me that A&M would be tough to beat if they offer. Creek (CO) center prospect and Colorado commit Carson Lee showed some great skills on Sunday. He does a great job with his hands and he keeps a really nice knee bend. This allows him to stay on balance and maintain great contact with the defender. Lee measured in a 6'3, 320 pounds.-I am a big fan of Connaly's Trent Pullen. His numbers aren't great and neither is his size but his improvement is fun to watch. Last year I wasn't sure about him but now I am changing my mind completely. He shows up at every camp and puts on a show. He has improved his knee bend, technique, and his strength. This guy wins almost every rep at these camps and it is fun to watch him improve each time out. This is vs. Sawyer Goram-Welch : Worth All Saints' 2021 OL Tommy Brockermeyer continues to make his push to the top of the 2021 offensive line class. I personally do not have him at the number one spot but he is definitely in the top 5 in the loaded position. He has solid hands and feet plus he has very good strength for a sophomore. He is well advanced beyond his years and I expect he will be at worst a high four star recruit and maybe even a five star if he commits to Texas. His dad played at UT.-Let's roll through some others quickly. Prestonwood's Javan Bouton won OL MVP which was deserved. He had a really good day but his 6'2 frame is going to be hard to look past unless he is at center. Texas commits Jake Majors and Logan Parr are both solid players but neither one really jumps off the charts when you watch them. They are just another one of the guys and were outperformed by lower ranked prospects. Lake Ridge's Caleb Rogers is one to watch. I liked what I saw from him with his positioning and technique plus he is a legit 6'4-6'5. He needs to add a lot of weight to his frame but I am intrigued by his potential. Liberty Christian's Andy Buttrell is a mixed bag. He has great size and strength plus he looks outstanding some reps. But other reps he looks completely off balance and slow. Braswell's 2021 OL Eric Cade is one of the most sought after prospects but he was extremely disappointing in one on one drills. He could not slide his feet well at all and was beaten numerous times.-The defensive line tried to hold their own against a very good group of offensive lineman. Highland Park's Prince Dorbah stole the show like he does at all of the camps. He is so quick off the edge and exposes offensive lineman more times than not. He and Nathan Anderson had a nice battle. Dorbah is not the biggest guys but he just understands the technique of the position and then has the quickness to execute.-Desoto's 2021 defensive end Shemar Turner had a really good day as well. He took home DL MVP and he performed well enough to get that. Baylor offered him first and are still his biggest offer. I am kind of surprised more schools haven't jumped on him yet but if I am Baylor I would definitely keep on the full court press for this kid.-Hazen (AR) Blayne Toll is a confusing one. He looks like the exact prototype for a defensive end. At 6'6, 244 pounds he is a guy that you look at and say he is going to be unstoppable at the next level. But then he does one on one and he has zero moves outside of the bull rush. Nathan Anderson handled him all three times they went. I am curious to see how much he improves this year.-Longview's Sawyer Goram-Welch is a guy I was on the lookout for because I like his film and size. I finally got to see him in person and he is a very good player. He has nice explosiveness and a variety of moves to go along with a 6'4, 278-pound frame. He ran a 5.1 and had a 27-inch vertical.-Antonian's Devin Grant needs to get in on more one on one repetitions. He looked outstanding against E'Marion Harris but only went on the line twice. Grant won all four reps but he needs to be more assertive. He measured 6'3, 235 pounds but ran a 4.9 in the 40. If he camps and gets that 40 time down I think Baylor could offer. This is against Harris: couple more that stood out. MacArthur's Blake Burris is a nightmare for guards to stop at these camps, he looks very impressive. Weatherford (OK) 2021 defensive end Ethan Downs is an absolute stud. Baylor was his first offer but he has been getting a lot of attention lately and I am not sure if Baylor is still in the mix. Desoto's 2021 defensive end Byron Murphy II had a great day and this was the first time I have seen him in person. He has really good explosiveness at the point of attack and uses his hands well to get off blocks. Earle (AR) J.J. Coopwood showed off some nice athleticism for a guy his size and is one to watch out of Gerry Bohannon's high school.-Top 5 performers video:

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.

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.”
