USAAB Scrimmage Notes: East Offense
The East has four quarterbacks and they were rotating very quickly. Georgia commit Aaron Murray (Plant/Fla.) looked like the five-star prospect that we have been waiting to see. Murray was threading the needle all scrimmage long. He also showed great touch on his deeper passes. Penn State pledge Kevin Newsome (Portsmouth/Va.)unleashed a bomb on his third play from scrimmage as he hit Josh Adams in stride from about 35-yards out and Adams raced untouched into the end zone. Newsome broke lose a few times, but the whistles were quickly blown before he could break loose. Rutgers commit Tom Savage threw several underthrown balls and again tried too much to force the action. He really seems to be pressing. There are three running backs on the East team, but Bryce Brown is the man and it seems as though every kid on the team wants to see him run when he takes off. Brown juked five-star linebacker Dorian Bell out of his shoes with and amazing spin move during the scrimmage. Everyone in the Alamodome just looked in awe as he broke down the sidelines. Clemson commit Roderick McDowell is showing that he is a dangerous threat as a receiver out of the backfield. Some think that he is only a third down back, but the more we see him the more I disagree with that call. He has a frame that will allow him to get bigger and take the punishment that an every down back endures. Wide receiver Jeremy Gallon (Apopka, Fla.) owned the East defensive secondary all week, but he was held in check at the scrimmage. Adams (Cheshire/Conn.) had a beautiful catch on a deep, skinny post that he hauled in for a score. Adams is more of a finesse guy who can do some serious damage, but he has to work on being more physical to be able to separate from defensive backs. Five-star tight end Logan Thomas had his best showing of the week as he caught a couple of passes and broke free in the secondary for big gains each time. Orson Charles (Plant/Fla.) is a "Freak" he is built like an NFL linebacker, but he runs routes and has hands like a wide receiver. He is a "Tweener", but the kid can play. (Jack Britt/N.C.) standout Xavier Nixon continues to show that he is a legit choice as the top offensive lineman in the country and could warrant consideration for the top overall prospect in the country. Eric Shrive (West Scranton/Pa.) had the block of the day when he picked up Johnny Simon (Cardinal Mooney/Ohio) and basically power bombed him into the ground. The two then exchanged blows before being separated. Shrive got heated and then got beat twice in a row before being pulled out to gather himself. Shrive came back and performed like the five-star that he is. Chris Burnette (Troup/Ga.) continued to have trouble with the bigger, stronger defensive tackles. The East weakness at guard forced them to move Morgan Moses (Meadowbrook/Va.) to guard. Corey Gaines (Godby/Fla.) was playing center at the scrimmage.
