DB Obi Eboh – Southlake – He may have told Scout.com that he was 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, but that seems like quite a conservative figure (though it’s likely true). Eboh looks massive, much like a safety heading into college. Not like a kid who’s about to start his junior season in high school.
WR Blake Lynch – Gilmer – According to Scout.com’s Gabe Brooks, Lynch looks slightly bigger every time he sees him. Much like Ketchum, Lynch is think in the upper body, and has a 6-foot-3 frame. That’s a scary combination and several teams found that out this weekend as Lynch dominated on both sides of the ball.
DB Justin Dunning – Whitehouse – What more can be said about Dunning? This is a massive young man. He’s got a long (especially wingspan), lean build, but a great muscle tone to go along with it. He’s a safety who got the frame of a potential linebacker. But here’s the upside, he moves just well or better than the top secondary players in the country.
QB/WR J.W. Ketchum – From the start of the Division I play, the first player notice was Ketchum. And he is not hard to miss. He’s 5-foot-11, and just over 200 pounds, but his upper body is built like a linebacker. He is completely cut up in the arms and chest.
WR DaMarkus Lodge – Not crazy big by any stretch of the imagination, but Lodge has a great build on him. In the 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame he has the lean muscle mass that is proportioned well with his body. And much like his future teammate in Dunning, Lodge has a great wingspan, which is just one more factor that helps him make the spectacular plays he makes on a daily basis.
