Eisenhower High School Recruiting Outlook
Eisenhower High School is in the heart of Houston and in the heart of the recruiting world. The school produces a lot of talent for colleges, here is a look at the top prospects. Class of 2011 Stanley Chatman - Solid size, he is lacking in height but is over six foot tall. Plays hard and intense, he is great at backside pursuit and has enough speed that he can chase down the slower running backs out there. Good on the pass rush also, the offenses make a mistake in having a back block him, he is too quick for them. Solid D1 Trevion Cooks - An average running back, he is very effecient and chews up yards. Very patient runner, he allows the blocks to set up and then goes through the hole. Solid in speed and acceleration but not above average in either. Has a great feel on where to find the hole for yards. D2-D3 prospect Jalante Jones - Great size for a linebacker, plus he has another year left after this year. Does not have great instincts and often time is out of position, but he manages to find himself around the ball through effort and not giving up on the play. Needs to shed the blocker better, he gets caught up too much on blocks. Good upside on him. Solid D1 James Jones - Plays quarterback in high school but projects to wide receiver or cornerback in college. Good running skills, he knows how to score with the ball. Dangerous in the open since he has solid speed and good instincts running the ball. Solid D1 Emmanuel Rasberry - Can play safety, corner and is a standout on special teams. Great job of coming up and closing in on the play, his closing speed is amazing. Is a bit on the thin side, but should fill out more by the time he graduates. Solid D1 2012 E'lon Fusilier - Classic big wide receiver who can leap and make the catch. Not that fast but he is okay in that department. He won't break too many plays with his speed from the catch but if you can lead him downfield he won't be easy to get from behind. Great leaping ability and concentration. National D1 prospect Michael Igwe - Big space eating defensive tackle, he is a huge body and is tough to dislodge. He won't make many plays behind the line of scrimmage instead he clogs the middle up and can make tackles to the sides of the ends. Not fast, and he tends to stand up at the snap which gets him in trouble, still he can use a spin move to get out of trouble. Solid D1 prospect, Texas top 250 at worst. Derrick Hawkins - On the thin side but he is tall and has great body control. He can find the ball in traffic, then he is good at getting yards after the catch even though he does not have break away speed. Can be a D1 if his 40 time is solid Michael Smith - Undersized linebacker, he is speedy, quick and flies to the ball and finishes the play. His lack of size causes him problems against the run when a big lineman comes after him, he has the quickness to get around the slower linemen. A special teams standout he is usually the first one down on coverage. Probably a D2 because of size.
