Scouting: Jim Hill vs Terry

Posted Sep 28, 2010


Terry got the better of Jim Hill last Thursday thanks in large part to a very good third quarter. The Bulldogs quickly expanded a 21-14 halftime lead and never looked back. While the Tigers wound up on the short side of the score, there were certainly a few highlights and players worth mentioning.

Frederick Brown - (2012) Perhaps the best prospect on the field that night. Fred has great length which makes him a very wide receiver prospect.

Brown is very competitive and never shies away from traffic when the ball is in the air. He has very good hands and attacks the ball at its' highest point. He is a long strider with good speed who gets in and out of his breaks pretty well.

After the catch Fred is looking way for a way to get to the endzone while many of his peers are looking for the sidelines. He is a bona fide college prospect.

Nathaniel Shelby - (2012) Plays on both sides of the ball, but appears better suited for an offensive guard position on the next level.

Nathaniel is a little stiff and has an unusual stance which appears to be a way to gain a little bit of a head start prior to the snap. Some time with the squat rack and a strength and conditioning coach should get him straightened out.

Shelby has a very good base and the core strength to gain ground after initial contact. He has good leg drive and very strong hands. He appears to really enjoy the game within the game that takes place at the line of scrimmage.

Demonte Cooper - (2011) Runs well and drives through ball carriers rather than pulling up at the point of impact.

Cooper plays out of position on the high school level and will likely spend his time in college patrolling a college secondary.

It is tough to get a read on his coverage skills due to his time at linebacker, but he would be very comfortable in a defensive system that blitzes a lot with their defensive backs.

Darryl Nearing - (2011) Nearing wants it really bad and it shows. He is a very competitive player who is always looking for an edge.

He could play as a slot receiver or a corner on the next level. He has the ball skills to contribute on either side of the ball, but will probably see his first looks at corner.

Jonathan Ward - (2012) Ward is a scat back who has very good north and south speed. Once he sees the seam he hits the gas.

He does not have ideal size, but could thrive in a spread type system that gets him the ball in space.

Ward is an interesting prospect who will benefit from attending some college camps and showing coaches what he can do in person.
