2011 Prospect: Eastside LB
Player: LB Darius Powell School: Eastside HS (Gainesville, FL) Measurables: 5-11/205 Grades: 3.1 core/19 ACT Junior Stats: 92 tackles, 12 TFL, 3 sacks, and 3 caused fumbles in just 8 games. Top 5 college choices: Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, and Miami Childhood favorite: Florida Scholarship offers: None 2 most important factors: Education and good coaches The Skinny: One of the most productive linebacker prospects in the greater Gainesville area last season, Powell made close to 100 stops and only played in eight games. He has the ability to play inside or outside and uses excellent instincts and good football speed to be around the ball a lot. He simply finds the football and makes plays. He lacks ideal height right now but will most likely attract some Div 1 scholarship offers this spring. How tall he gets could tell his upside.
