A look at the four cornerback prospects in the Midlands region who made the initial Class of 2015 Scout300...


Complete Reports:
QB | RB | WR | OT | OG | DE | DT | LB | S | CB

Kendall Sheffield (6'0, 180) - Fort Bend (Texas) Marshall
Sheffield is a blistering fast prospect, posting an elite laser-time of 4.36 in the 40-yard dash. He is the type of corner who has the size and the skill set to develop in to a guy you can put out on the island and play one-on-one against the other team's most dangerous weapon at receiver. He is not the most physical player on the defense, but has quickness in and out of his breaks and can quickly get in position to stop plays in the flats

Kris Boyd (6'0, 185) - Gilmer (Texas) High
An elite level athlete with tremendous burst and top-end speed. He plays both ways in high school at RB/WR and CB, but figures to be a defensive player by most once he gets to college and has a desire to play defense in college. He has turn and run ability and his size at the position gives him an advantage in one-on-one coverage against big, elite level wide receivers. All of those skills will make him a very high level rated prospect.

Holton Hill (6'2, 175) - Houston Lamar
Much like teammate and top 2014 recruit John Bonney, Hill is a versatile defensive back, who could actually end up playing safety or corner on the next level. He has terrific size and a frame that looks like he will be much bigger by the time he leaves high school. He is not afraid to come up and lay the wood and flies to the football making sound tackles and making his presence known. Will get better and better with more experience.

Jalen Campbell (5'10, 170) - Corpus Christi (Texas) Flour Bluff
Texas Commit

Campbell has not put up he best times at camps when running the 40-yard dash, but do jot let that fool you, he is very quick. Sometimes the best attribute for a corner prospect is his hips and he is very fluid in and out of his breaks and his feet are very quick, which allows him to turn and run and stick with receivers in and out of their breaks or running down the field. Looks skinny, but has muscle on his frame.
