Detroit Cass Tech's Will Campbell is the best prospect GBW has seen this year - by far. At the Army…
Scouting Cass Tech vs Pershing
Detroit Cass Tech William Campbell - Senior - Defensive Tackle "Big Will" did not have a huge impact on this game as Pershing ran a lot of sweeps and designed quarterback rollouts, was this a decision made with the five star Campbell in mind? Could be. At any rate, he showed good athleticism when he gave chase to the quarterback, but we spent most of this game watching him on offense. He easily overmatched the man across from him and moved him with very little effort. You could see the natural ability Will has, but this wasn't the best game to see him in. Teric Jones - Senior - Running Back Same goes for Jones. Pershing held the ball for most of the game and when Cass had the ball, it seemed like Thomas Gordon scored as soon as he touched it. Jones finished with six carries. Although he showed his speed and agility when he broke into the open field and hurdled a would-be tackler. He also had a nice punt return. He had a couple nice blocks which sprung his QB for a touchdown. Thomas Gordon - Senior - Quarterback The star of the show on this day, Gordon showed speed, elusiveness and strength on his three touchdown runs. At safety, his likely college position, he made a couple of nice tackles and once again demonstrated his speed and ball skills as he jumped a couple passes for near interceptions. Thaddeus Burton - Senior - Linebacker I really like Burton's game. He has good speed and a nose for the ball. He is a solid tackler and a good blitzer and at this point, is very underrated. Dior Mathis - Junior - Cornerback The speedy Mathis made a nice play late in the game as he made an interception. He also closed nicely on two short passes, one that he nearly intercepted, the other he made a good tackle on. He has speed, good footwork and ball skills, he only needs to add size and strength into his game and he'll be a complete corner. A few other Cass Tech players I noticed were in their receiving corps. Juniors Mike Low (6'4, 200) and Jeremey Christian (6'2, 190) are both big and physical targets. Christian had a nice catch and run where he showed some speed and elusiveness. Sophomore wide receiver Blake Blackwell was quiet, but another player to remember. Pershing Tevon Conrad - Senior - Offensive Tackle Facing a pretty good end in Cass Tech's Dalton Barksdale, the 6'7, 300-lb Conrad was pretty impressive. His long arms are tough for linemen to contend with and Conrad did a nice job of staying balanced and moving his feet. He has all the raw tools: the frame, the athleticism and natural strength, but he needs big time refinement and technical work. Still, his ceiling is high. Already holding an FCS offer, it wouldn't surprise me to see an FBS team offer soon.
