Brian's 6/12 Football Camp Recap
Here are some quick thoughts on the camp, the day, etc. I'm a bullet point kind of guy and will just outline it that way.Got up at 5am, miracle, put 5 cups of coffee in the SicEm365 IceShaker and hit the roadRain started just as I opened the garage and it was not prettyDriving down from Celina, saw a lightning strike in the field next to me, everything went whiteThankfully I was at a stop light and proceeded on and then hit all the water in the construction area for the new DNTThen I headed down DNT and weaved in and out of traffic until I got to Kiest on 35 and saw 35 was shut down for construction. Sat in traffic for 5 minutes, Grayson texts he's stuck in a 35 shutdown in JarrellTraffic just opens up as I guess they unblocked at 7amRain has now stopped and 80mph down to Waco has begunArrive at McLane and hurry over to the 40 testing areaSee Nick Morrow test and he looks good and fluidSee DeCarlos Nicholson test and he blazes his 40I go get his number and invite him to the studioGrayson arrives around 9:15I tell Grayson he's fired for a laughGrayson tells me to stick itWe both start commenting on players in front of us performingAustin Novosad is whistling the ball in front of us while he warms up. Noticeable difference in his arm strength and anyone else thereEd Jones comes by and tells everyone the camp is being moved to Allison Indoor and the practice fields300 or so campers are told they're walking to the IndoorParents, get in your cars and drive overGet to the car, get a good parking spot, find the OL/DL inside and go in there to watchSeveral standouts, Colton Thomasson, Nick Morrow, Victor Shaw, Lance Jackson, Jacob Waller, and moreThomasson is the standout in just pure sizeThomasson is moving so much better at 325 than at 403This was my worry on him two seasons ago of being a big kid that is too slowHe's not a finished product by any means, but he's going to see the field by his Soph yearFind his dad and invite them to the studioFind Morrow's parents and invite them to the studioFind the Pleasant Grove coaches and invite the entire team to the studio (7 of them)Morrow is so long and athletic, but he's not 6-8, he's 6-6+Morrow's best football is in front of him, I think he'll be an NFL type looking LT with his length and wingspanHis frame can go to 320 easily as he fills outI see him in the vein of Elijah Ellis in rawness but you know it when you see itLance Jackson doesn't look like a soon to be 9th grader, just not right to be that athletic at that ageHe goes at OL and DLHe's a take at eitherVictor Shaw goes at OL and DL and he's a take at either, IMOShaw is long and athletic and could be a guard or DT in Baylor's schemesWaller has some talent, but a little slower footed compared to the others, but his technique wasn't bad and he won more than he lostDK Kalu is a big butted athleteHe explodes off the ball and will be a NT or DT at 320+ by the time he's in collegeHe's fluid and flexibleTry to get him to the studio, but he can't make itAaron Mueller of CC Flour Bluff was there and he has to get his ass down to anchorMueller is flat backed and reaches versus sinking those hips and exploding upGalvin worked with him over and over and he just kept going back to bad reaching When he got down, he wonDuring the drills, Mateos said, "Do you know where you are?" He starts pointing at the banners on the walls... Kids are looking at him He loudly says, "You're at Baylor and we don't do it slow. Pick up the pace and go!"Campers are told to go back to the stadiumI say, time for me to go to the studio and Grayson agreesWe arrive, Paul is setting upWe film until 3:30Upload film until 5pmI drive back to Celina and crashBen Inez, I think that was his name, was a massive 2024 OLRaw, raw, raw, raw, but huge and will grow into that frame

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.

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

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.
