Madison Central is looking to make another run at the Class 6A title as they are off to a 4-0 start. Below is an in-depth analysis of a few of their key players and video footage from the first three games of their season against Melrose (TN), Jackson Provine, and Hattiesburg.
Scout's Take: Devon will be one of
the premier offensive line prospects in next year's class. He is around
6' 5", 300 which is a little tall for an offensive center (current
position he plays) but he has the footwork to play center or even
tackle on the next level. Desper has a high motor and is extremely
tough and competitive.
Scout's Take: The 4-Star wide receiver
has shown that his big-playmaking ability can come from anywhere
as he has three special teams touchdowns while the Jags are breaking
in a new quarterback. Singleton sometimes looks like he has been
shot out of a cannon as he simply blows by the defenders with his
speed and quickness. He is what you term a "home-run"
Scout's Take: The younger
brother of Tobias Singleton is the tailback of the future for the
Jag's offense. He is built compact at 5' 10", 200 and is a
one cut runner that runs downhill. He twisted an ankle against
Hattiesburg and has not returned to the field.
Scout's Take: The 6' 0", 308-pound
defensive tackle is a true run stopper and shows good leverage and
quickness off of the ball. He will need to continue to work on his
conditioning but he has the strength and skills to become a D1 player.
Scout's Take: DeHendrick's name has
not been passed around in the recruiting circles but the 6' 1",
180-pound safety is a consistent playmaker for the Jaguar's defense.
He shows the ability to cover and support the run. Keep your ears
open for Thompson's name as he could be a late bloomer.
Scout's Take: The 6' 3", 280-pound
defensive lineman out of Madison Central is one of the better looking
defensive tackle prospects in a deep and talented pool of junior
defensive linemen in next year's class. He uses his leverage and
strength to bull rush and has good pass rushing techniques to swim
by the offensive tackles. Currently plays end but projects at tackle
on the next level.
Scout's Take: The slot back has recently
been going both ways as he is trying to get some looks at cornerback
on the next level. Joe has always had the straight ahead speed to
play on the next level, but now he is working on his quickness.
Price still looks more natural at tailback but you can see he is
becoming more and more comfortable at corner.
Scout's Take: What Richard lacks in
size (5' 5", 165) he makes up for in speed and quickness. Lankston
has been a consistent playmaker in the Jaguar's offense this season,
and shows the mental and physical toughness to hang with the "big"
boys, but recently transferred to Canton Aca this week.
Scout's Take: The 6' 5", 285-pound
offensive tackle is one of the mainstays for the Jaguar's offensive
line. Madison Central likes to run the ball a lot on his side of the
field, and he looks to be an emotional leader for their team. Ellzey
obviously has the frame you are looking for on the next level.
Scout's Take: The 6' 1", 220-pound
Jackson Prep transfer is playing a new position at Madison Central
this season as he switched from defensive end to tight end. Sam
is a sound blocker and has good hands. Size might be an issue for
the next level at tight end, but he has natural football instincts
which should land him somewhere on the collegiate level..
