OL Hunter Goodwin
, Gilman (MD) – The Wake Forest
commit is a massive player (6'6"/290) with great potential. He can play either tackle position. He is ahead with his run blocking right now because his team was such a dominant team on the ground. When he pass blocked this week he showed a good punch and moves well for a bigger guy. Goodwin switched from right tackle to left tackle often in the game which isn't easy to do. He has a good first step and makes it tough for a defender to break away. He will have a nice career in the ACC.
OL Chaz Lowery, Ocean Lakes, (VA) – Lowery was very impressive all week. He has very good feet and is good at both run and pass blocking. Lowery goes hard every rep and looks for someone to hit throughout the play. He blocks downfield well and is relentless. He is aggressive and physical. He has a lot of versatility on the line because he moves so well. He can drop step well and can pull and lead the runner. Lowery has a big upside for college.
TE David Alaniz, James Wood (VA) – Alaniz is a converted tackle that works hard at the tight end position. He has good hands and is a smart player. He needs to work on his strength for blocking and speed going in and out of his routes. He has more speed going straight ahead but the flexibility will come. He has a great frame for tight end standing 6'6" and weighing about 245.
WR Jordan Kittrell, Friendship Collegiate (DC) – Kittrell is a big target that had a great week. He stands 6'5" and has deceptive speed. He gets behind the defender and can go up and make the tough catch. He needs to add upper body strength and add weight to his 190 pounds. It will help him from getting knocked off the ball and off his routes. He showed good hands all week. In the game he was a big play threat and had several balls deep downfield that were well defended that he couldn't quite pull in. He did have a big catch for 50 yards though.
WR Matt Zanellato, Lake Braddock (VA) – The Penn State commit had a tremendous week in practice and then topped that off with an outstanding game performance. Zanellato catches everything. Put a ball anywhere near him and he makes the catch. He is a big player at 6'4" and 200 pounds. He runs excellent routes and doesn't mind getting physical with his blocks. He has good speed for his size that surprises defenders. He gets good separation because he executes his routes so well. He isn't a burner but he uses his size and hands to be a big play receiver. He made plays at critical times and he as much as anyone lead the South Team to victory. In the game, Zanellato had 4 receptions for 131 yards including a 33 yard touchdown.
DL Damian Williams, Parkside (MD) – Williams was one of the most talked about players this week. He impressed the coaches from the beginning and had a great week of practice. Several coaches mentioned him first when asked who was most impressive at practice. He is a bull inside and gets good penetration. He was often way too much for an offensive lineman one on one. He is very good against the run and because he goes so hard every play he just wears down his opponent. Good defensive tackles are hard to come by, especially in high school but Williams is one of those good ones. His school doesn't get the exposure of others because of its location but the college that gets Williams will be getting a difference maker.
DL Emmanuel Bawa, Northwestern (MD) – Bawa has a good defensive end frame and has a lot of raw potential. He had to get use to playing up in competition going against the best players in the area rep after rep. He started to get that his technique will win more battles than just his athleticism. He has good lower body strength and has some speed off the edge. He is better suited for rushing the quarterback right now than his run defense but he has so much potential that he will develop fine over the next few years. He had one tackle in the game.
DL Rob Burns, Stone Bridge, (VA) – The Virginia commit is a huge defensive end. He stands 6'8" and weighs close to 240 pounds. He needs to keep adding strength to his frame and will easily be a 275-280 pound end in college. He runs well for a big guy and is very hard for the quarterback to see around. He uses his hands well and is best when he can work in space. He is a smart player that picks things up quickly and as his athleticism catches up with his body he will be a stud in college. In the game, Burns had a tackle and a quarterback hurry.
