We headed into the Windy City area for two games on Saturday. Here are some shots we got of the top…
Scouting: Mount Carmel vs St. Laurence
Mt. Carmel 9 Milton Greer Senior RB 6'0 / 197 Greer did not play much in the second half of this 48-7 victory, but we saw what we needed to see from the Miami-Ohio commit in the first half. He had two short touchdown runs of five and seven yards, but it was the one which got called back, a 77-yard jaunt where we saw his skills. He is a good cutback runner, showing good vision and an excellent burst through the hole. I don't see him being a home run hitter in high school as he is not blazingly fast, but he gets going north and south and shows good instincts and ability to read his blocks. As a blocker, he did a nice job. He did not look quite as big as his listed 6'0, 197, he is more of a compact back, which is not a bad thing. For good measure, he added an interception and a tackle from his safety spot. He could possibly project to strong safety or rover, but looked more natural on offense. 66 Nathan Ollie Senior DT 6'1 / 274 Ollie, a Ball State commitment, was part of a defense which only allowed the one touchdown just before the end of the first half. He is an undersized tackle, but is active and quick off the ball. He plays with good leverage and did a good job of holding his ground and locating the ball. He did not make any plays in the backfield, but did a good job getting penetration a couple times. Overall, he was solid and should be a steady, dependable presence for the Cardinals. Others: Senior wide receiver Jack Sherlock (6-4, 199) is big and has solid hands. He looks like a solid 1-AA/D2 prospect; he did not show the top end speed to project as an FBS wideout. Junior wide receiver Mike Banks is smaller (5'7, 156), but quick and elusive. The Caravan have two junior linemen who did not start the game, but have intriguing potential. Joshua Wilson (6'6, 316) and Derryl Birge (6'4, 302) are both big kids who have yet to really make an impact, but are prospects worth tracking for the next year. St. Laurence 77 Cormack Mulcahy Senior OT/DT 6'3 / 260 Mulcahy caught my eye a lot throughout this game. He played both ways for much of the game and he could play either side in college, but I thought he performed better as an offensive lineman today. He is tough and regularly drove the man across from him downfield and came away with a couple pancakes. He has decent technique, although he could play lower in the run game. On defense, he also played high a few times, but showed the same effort and intensity he did on offense even despite the scoreboard. Judging only from this game, I think he is a future college guard and could see him being a late pickup for an FBS team or being a steal for a D2 or 1-AA team.
