Central H.S. More on Scott McDowell | #57 OT | Junior Highlights: | Profile Illinois Commitment List | Forums My Hotlist | Scout300 | Ask The Scouts Committed to: Game: vs Glenbard West (9/10/2010) Analysis: I really like McDowell. He's strong and like Allen, he has been well coached and has excellent fundamentals. He's more college ready than his counterpart, I believe, because of his size and strength. He plays hard and did a good job of finishing blocks. He also did a nice job when facing GB West's highly recruited lineman Tommy Schutt. I would not call him "supremely" athletic, but he moves well, bends well, and his footwork is good. He is just an all around solid lineman. I think he has a shot at left tackle, but could certainly be an excellent right tackle if that side does not work out. Either way, I think he is a future college starter. Verdict: McDowell is a prospect I've felt was underappreciated since I saw him over the summer. On tape, he did not disappoint and now in person in a game, I again saw his ability. He's a very strong commitment for Illinois, a guy we will consider moving up the rankings, and we expect to be a contributor for the Illini.
