Cedar Hill Prospects to Dallas Combine

Cedar Hill Prospects to Dallas Combine

Cedar Hill, Texas is home to the 16-0, 5A State Champions with talent always in abundance. Coach Joey McGuire spent time talking about some of his prospects attending the Scout.com All-American Combine in Dallas, Texas Sunday March 25 at the Cowboys' Training Facility.

Jarvis Humphrey:

Joey McGuire: "He's committed to Texas. It is a good fit for him, and I'm excited because I know they are losing a number of defensive linemen. I think he is going to have a chance to play early. The best defensive tackle in the state. He's 6-1.5-6-2, 290-pounds, very explosive off the ball. He benches over 350- pounds, squats over 600-pounds, and the best defensive lineman that I think I've been around. That's a compliment compared to the defensive linemen that we've had in the last few years. He won't go to any combines."

Humphrey's 2006 stats: 39 tackles, 20 assists, 20 tackles for a loss and six sacks.

Humphrey is the only Cedar Hill prospect, coach McGuire discussed, who will not attend the combine this weekend.

Isiah Pennell:

JMc: "He's a kid that is a basketball player that has come out for football. He's a big kid, 6-1, 6-1.5, a real long kid. I'm excited about him. This is going to be his first year with us. He's played football before, but I don't know where or when. He's going to be big time. He's a big kid for a corner, 185 pounds. We're just going to play him at cornerback. He's got really good feet, and that comes from playing man-to-man in basketball. He ran a 4.51 when we timed in the forty."

When asked of scholarship offers coach McGuire replied, "Not yet, but he will come out of spring. I would be surprised if he didn't have five to 10 offers."

Corwin Hicks:

JMc: "He's a three-year starter for us or will be this next year. He is a running back/linebacker kid. He started for us on the defensive side the last two years. He's fast. He's one of those kids that his motor always runs, and he's got really good speed. He's probably around 195-pounds and somewhere between a 4.4 and a 4.5 [40-yard dash]. He's 5-10, 5-11."

Hicks' 2006 stats: 52 tackles, 22 assists, two sacks and one fumble recovery.

When asked of offers and position on the next level McGuire replied, "He's getting a lot of mail. I think he is probably interested in SMU, TCU, Tulsa, Baylor would be some of his top schools. Probably like a strong safety. Let him work as a linebacker at the combine."

Elijah Olibode:

JMc: "He's probably at the next level more of a corner, but he plays free safety for us. He is 5-10, 185-pounds. He runs real well. He's got really good hips and is very physical, very physical. He's got some letters--New Mexico State, Tulsa. I don't know who some of the other letters are, but he doesn't have any offers yet."

Olibode's 2006 stats: 37 tackles 19 assists, two interceptions, four pass break-ups and two interceptions.

Montrel Green:

JMc: "Speed, speed, speed. He runs the third leg on our 4x100 which has one of the fastest times in the state. We've actually timed him at a 4.31. I think that's a little fast, but he's a legitimate 4.4, and can fly. He's got really good hips. He reminds me a lot of the kid we had last year, Romy Blaylock, that is going to Baylor. They remind me a lot of each other. He's 5-9.5-5-10, 165 pounds."

Green's 2006 stats: 20 receptions, 256 yards and three touchdowns.

JMc: "I think he's going to be corner or receiver (on the next level). Very disciplined route runner. He's got really good hands, and he's a kid that can make you miss. There are some guys that are fast from A to B, but he's played running back his whole career until this last year. I needed another receiver, and we were kind of stacked up at running back."

Greg Brown:

JMc: "He's 5-11, 180-pounds. Once again, you'll hear me say this a lot about my kids because they can really run. He's got really good speed. He's a big corner, and he's very physical. He's got one offer right now, and that's from the University of Tulsa. I think he will be a kid that coming out of spring will have numerous offers."

Brown's 2006 stats: 28 tackles 12 assists, two interceptions and four pass break-ups.

When asked of any two-way players for this talented squad McGuire replied, "No, all my guys play one way only."

Imari Thompson:

JMc: "He plays tailback for us. Good-sized kid, 5-10, 198. Maybe pushing 200, very physical. He can run, but he's very physical too. He's kind of not one of those scatbacks. He's more of a power back. He's a kid that's starting to get a lot of interest. This group of seniors have really good grades. A lot of coaches like that with the number of core going up. I really like Imari because he is a leader, and a very physical running back. He's a 4.5 [40-yard dash]."

Thompson's 2006 stats: 79 rushes for 505 yards with six touchdowns and three receptions for 20 yards.

Thomas Ashcraft:

JMc: "I feel like he's the best sophomore lineman in the state of Texas (class of 2009). He might be limited at the combine to what he is going to do. He is the best offensive lineman I've seen come through Cedar Hill, and I said that two years ago about the kid that's going to Baylor. I think he's better. Thomas, it's amazing that he started 16 games as a sophomore and did what he did on the offensive line because you don't see a lot of kids that can do that."

"He graded out at 88-percent. He's 6-5, 275. He's a kid that if he continues to progress --he's a kid that can play anywhere in the nation in college and have a chance to play in the pros because he really moves well. He's an A-student in honors classes."

Adrian Blaylock: (defensive tackle)

JMc: "He's a young kid. He's another one that's going to be a junior. This is his first year that he's played for us. He played JV. He's a good looking kid. I'm anxious to see how he does at the combine. He's 6-1, 250-pounds."

Ryan Bradley:

JMc: "Good speed, good hands. He's a kid that doesn't have great speed. He's just more of a possession receiver. He's 6-0, 170."

Cedar Hill has plenty of speed and skilled players returning in 2007. Coach McGuire also talked of the guys returning in the trenches.

"We've got three offensive starters coming back-- right guard, right tackle and Jarvis on defensive line. We have a really good one in Tyler Washington, 6-1, 215 at linebacker."
