i find this extremely interesting
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.
This week's scouting report is on Crete (IL) Crete-Monee wide receiver Laquon Treadwell. I had a hard time coming up with a player comparison for him, because he's different than a lot of the guys Michigan has seen over the last 20 years or so. I do think he's a good prospect and could really excel with Shane Morris throwing him the ball.
This week's scouting report is on Ty Isaac, the Illinois running back that so many Michigan fans desperately seem to want. I think some of the criticisms of his running style have been overblown, although he does still have some holes in his game. Overall, I like him a little bit more now that I've really sat down and watched him.
Since there wasn't much video available on Patrick Kugler when he committed, I held off on giving any TTB Rating. Now that a twelve-minute highlight film appeared on the internet, I decided to devote this week's scouting report to Kugler. Overall, I think he's a very good prospect who reminds me of the mauling linemen of the 1990's/early 2000's at Michigan. I don't think we've seen a center like him for many years; Molk is a very good player, but a different type of lineman.
I put up a scouting report on Kendall Fuller this morning. He's a good prospect, but my takeaway is that he seems to be a little overrated on some sites. I don't think he's necessarily a future superstar or a future first round pick, but he should be a good college player if he can keep his head on straight and become a little more physical.
In this Rivals article, a former UMich player compares Drake Johnson (by all other accounts, an awesome straight-line runner who has difficulty with lateral moves) to, of all people, Mike Hart (pretty much the opposite):
Comparisons aside, I believe Johnson is one of the most interesting recruits in the class.
