Scout.com live evaluation: You could argue that William Lloyd
is the glue to the Eagles' team because of how much of an impact he makes on
both sides of the ball. He did not have a huge night offensively against Cleveland
East Side because Kailo Moore had the hot hand but he churned out several key
first downs on third down conversions to keep the drive alive. Defensively,
he looks a little more fit because he just has natural defensive instincts.
He always seems to know where the ball is going (evidence by his 18 tackles
in the game) and he has a nice quick burst to the ball carrier.
Ole Miss and MSU have actually offered William Lloyd on the offensive side of the ball, and we do not think it is just because what William wants to hear. They simply think his future is at running back right now, but do not be surprised if he does not end up a 6' 1", 220-pound outside linebacker when it is all said and done.
