Elkton (Md.) Christian Academy defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow is the top player
in the East 100.
There is no one in the region who can match Bigelow’s power, strength and explosion. He is a nightmare as a 3-technique because he plays low, is powerful and explodes up the field at the snap of the ball. He is constantly double teamed and sometimes gets third blocker. He is physically ready to compete for playing time at USC now.
Monaca (Pa.) Central Valley receiver
Robert Foster is just behind Bigelow.
Any time Foster gets the ball, he can score. He is fast and elusive, can get up and make the catch over a cornerback and is a sensational
athlete. Foster isn’t only a threat in the offense, but also on special teams. He’s a game-changer who can beat multiple defenders with his speed, quick feet and loose hips.
Oleny (Md.) Our Lady of Good Counsel cornerback
Kendall Fuller comes in third.
Fuller is a tremendous cover corner who combines speed and loose hips to shut down receivers. He tracks the ball well and has the speed to run with anyone. His break on the ball is tremendous and he likes to come up in run support to make the tackle. Fuller also is supremely confident and doesn’t get rattled.
Wexford (Pa.) North Alleghany offensive lineman
Patrick Kugler is the only offensive linemen in the top five, and for good
Kugler is the nation’s No. 1 offensive guard because of the combination of how he plays and the attitude he possesses. Kugler is technically sound and feisty, making sure to finish blocks and looking to hit anyone until the whistle. He bends well and keeps his balance, and he is quick to engage defenders and turn them which direction he wants to. He has good feet and has a good feel for run and pass blocking.
Camp Hill (Pa.) Ceder Cliff tight end
Adam Breneman is one of the top tight ends in he country.
Breneman won’t play as a senior because of a torn ACL, but he remains one of the top prospects in the region because, when healthy, his size and speed makes him a dangerous player in the passing game. He runs good routes and has superb hands. He can play as a true tight end or be split out wide, making him a matchup nightmare.
