This week's scouting report is on Placer (CA) Placer defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes. There aren't many defensive tackles in this class who are as athletic as Vanderdoes (although Montravius Adams comes to mind), but he needs a lot of work on technique. Right now he's basically just a big, fast dude out there tossing smaller guys around. He could be one of those guys who's a first or second round pick in a few years, or he might be one of those guys who never learns proper technique and gets buried on the depth chart somewhere.
This week's scouting report is on Mesquite (TX) West Mesquite wide receiver Eldridge Massington. He's 6'3", 205 lbs. and claims a 4.5 forty. Michigan has a good shot at pulling him in; however, USC is supposed to be his favorite, despite the fact that the Trojans haven't offered yet. Massington looks a little bit like David Terrell to me. Big kid, good leaper, good but not great speed. He's not quite as quick as Terrell, though.
This week's scouting report is on Bastrop (TX) Bastrop cornerback Antwuan Davis. Michigan currently sits outside his top five of Arkansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, TCU, and Texas, but the coaches are still pursuing him. I like Davis as a physical boundary corner, and he also has the speed to stick with receivers downfield. Lately it seems most Michigan corners only have one or the other, but Davis looks like a pretty complete player if he can stay healthy.
I wrote up a scouting report on E.J. Levenberry this week. After breaking down his film, it seems a slight bit odd that Michigan would put all/most of its linebacker eggs in the Levenberry basket. He's a good player, but I don't think he's a "can't miss" prospect. He's definitely going to need some good coaching to succeed at the next level.
This week's scouting report is on Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas defensive lineman Joey Bosa, who is scheduled to visit Ann Arbor for Michigan's spring game. He looks like a very good player in many respects, but he shows some shades of a young Taylor Lewan - he has a bit of a nasty streak that may or may not get him some penalties at some point.
This week's scouting report is on Baltimore (MD) Gilman defensive tackle/athlete Henry Poggi. I came away pretty impressed with how much he improved from his sophomore to junior season. He seems like a kid who is a pretty safe bet to be successful because he's got a good head on his shoulders, a good understanding of the game, and a pretty good set of athletic skills.
