Texas 7v7: Eye Ball Test

Obi Eboh

Scout.com was on hand for the Texas State 7-on-7 tournament. Several top teams and players were in action. Today, for this feature, we look at not just the play, but what is referred to as the ‘Eye Ball Test.’ This is basically a quick rundown on a few guys who looked the part. There were plenty to choose from.

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.

Also worth mentioning…
Channelview QB Jalen Hurts
The Woodlands RB Patrick Carr
Manvel LB Jordan Carmouche
