Scouting Report: Brian Randolph
Profile: Brian Randolph Location: Marietta, Ga. High School: Kell Position: Safety Size: 5-11/180 Scouting Report Randolph is a gifted athlete and he lines up at safety, running back, wide receiver, and kick-returner for his high school team. He rarely leaves the field for Kell, but his home will be on defense in college. As a safety, he brings instincts, strength, and smarts. He puts himself in good position to make plays against the run and the pass. He plays very good assignment football, he very rarely makes mistakes in the secondary, and he does an excellent job of keeping the play in front of him. When he tackles you know it most of the time. Not only is he a sound tackler, but he brings pop with him when he makes contact with the opponent. The big hits are one of the main things he is known for on the high school level. He plays with a lot of power and hits/tackles like a linebacker. While he is strong in many areas, he has room to improve in some as well. He closes on the ball well, but he can work on his overall speed, his change of direction, and getting through traffic. His speed is solid, but he needs to get faster and play the game a little faster if he wants to be elite on the next level. His closing speed is not bad, but it can get better. He makes good breaks on the ball and he identifies its location in a hurry, but he needs to become a more explosive player that gets to the ball a little quicker. He is a little stiff in the hips as well. He can work on his flexibility and make him not lose speed when making a cut or turning to run with a wide receiver. He has good speed when going north-south, but losing a little when he has to re-direct. Overall Randolph is a football player that is going to make an impact on the next level. He has too much going for him not to. Not only is he gifted on the field, but he is off the field as well. He is a true student-athlete that plays the game hard and smart. He could play strong or free safety on the next level because of his combination of instincts, hands, and tackling ability. Look for Randolph to be one of the most sought after prospects in the Georgia in 2011. Recruiting Notes: As of the end of September, Randolph has official offers from Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt. His brother Justin is a walk-on at Georgia Tech and they are in the mix as well. The in-state schools may battle it out for Randolph in the end.
