Scouting Report: Howland vs. Klein Forest
8 RB Dominic Wilkins 5-11/185 2009 Wilkins showed us that he deserves to be mentioned among the nation's top running backs. This kid has some tools and he can do things that not a lot of backs can do. You will see backs juke defenders in the open field with ease, but the special ones you will see juking linebackers in the whole and making people miss like Wilkins can do. Wilkins only has three offers from Kansas, Houston and Baylor, but let us be the first to say that you can expect that to change in the very near future. He will be an exciting one to watch this season. 7 QB Vernell Caldwell 5-10/170 2009 Caldwell does not likely have the size to be a quarterback at the D-I level, but he is very accurate and poised in the pocket. He throws very well on the run and really takes control of the huddle. He doesn't have an overly strong arm, but he can throw the short to intermediate routes well. He will likely project at another position at the next level. 44 MLB Daryl Simon 6-1/200 2011 My first thought when watching Simon was that I was watching a young Steve Filer. The former Chicago and current Notre Dame linebacker was a U.S. Army All-American. Simon has a very similar build and plays like Filer as well. The rangy, youngster plays with the confidence of an upperclassman. He has very good range and moves well laterally from sideline to sideline. If he progresses the way we expect he could be a very special player. 2 Jacob Decker 5-11/180 2010 Decker has a very strong leg and the best part is that he still has another season to go after this one. He perfect on his PAT's and he boomed most of his kickoff's into the end zone. 1 Tronte Robinson 6-0/185 2009 Robinson is not the biggest linebacker you'll find, but he definitely makes his presence felt by being very active. He is very stout against the run and he does a solid job in coverage. He also seems to really take on the role of being the inspirational and vocal leader for the Golden Eagles. 79 Zach Bolton 6-4/265 2010 This is a name that you're going to want to file into your memory banks for the future. Bolton has the kind of size and skill that will likely make him a national prospect next season. He is a mass of humanity, but he is also very nimble and athletic for his size. Bolton also plays with a nasty streak, which makes him almost seem unbeatable at times. Warren (Ohio) Howland 10 Tyler Scott 6-4/235 2009 Scott played most of the game at middle linebacker and tight end, but from what we see he will likely project out as a defensive end. He just lacks the speed and burst to be an explosive linebacker. He is a very solid prospect, but it will have to be on the edge or even at tight end. He is a solid effort guy, who will stick his nose in and make a block on offense. 32 RB Dante` Marsh 6-0/170 2009 Marsh never really got on track from his running back spot. Marsh did show some breakaway ability though on a few returns. Howland fell so far behind, so quickly that they never really got the ground game established. 73 Anthony Stanko 6-4/285 2012 It's tough to pump up a freshman offensive lineman, but when they start and they are as big as Stanko you can't help it. Stanko started at left guard and handled himself as well as one could expect. He struggles from time to time with his feet, but that will all come in time. This is another young prospect with big time upside. 67 Craig Stan 6-6/240 2009 Stan is flat out nasty. He is a whistle to whistle player and sometimes he will even go a little bit after the whistle. He has an outstanding frame that he could easily add 30-40 pounds to if not more. It will be interesting to see how he develops once he fills out.
