NC ATH Kris Frost Continues to Receive Shrine Bowl Accolades

Submitted by DGDestroys on December 18th, 2010 at 8:52 AM

A couple of days, I consolidated several reports about how badly Frost was tearing up the Shrine Bowl (between the best of the 2 Carolinas). Well, since then, Frost's play on the field has earned him the Number 1 spot on Rival's Top Players from the Shrine Bowl

Frost is super-athletic and it became clearer than ever this week that his future is at linebacker at the next level despite his interest in playing wide receiver. He is so quick off the edge, is a ball of energy with great enthusiasm and hustle and he has the speed to run things down from the backside. In his drops, he gets good depth, reads the play well and he has good ball skills and instincts. Frost needs to fill out his frame and get stronger, especially in his lower body, but as a blitzing outside linebacker he fits the mold of a disrupter at the next level. He also has the potential to cover tight ends and slot receivers in certain packages because of his athleticism and he is a natural leader and the kind of player that brings a contagious enthusiasm to the field.

So what kind of players did he compete with for this spot? 5* Jadeveon Clowney sat out most of the week, but players like:

4* OT Brandon Shell, 4* LB Stephone Anthony (Both 5* on Scout), 4* LB Lateek Townsend, 4* WR Charone Peake (Also a 5* on Scout), 4* DT Phillip Dukes, ND Commit DE Ben Councell, 4* QB Marquise Williams, 4* Devonte Brown

Just to name a few...

I hope, for Frost's sake, that he doesn't insist on playing wide receiver in college.  It would be a waste of time for him to play receiver for a year or two before switching to defense.

he just wants to hear that a team with give him the shot to play WR, but Im sure our coaches can convince him early on during his time in A2 that his place is at LB and that he could be special there. Lets just get him signed so we can pipe in Jeezy shouting "Burrrrr" every time he de-cleats a QB.

For what it's worth Auburn fans/boards don't seem as confident as they were earlier in the season in regards to landing Frost. You see a lot of "Kris thinks it's his destiny to play at Michigan" out of them now.

Haven't seen him play at all, but by the description, he sounds alot like Shawn Crable - energy, speed, twig-like lower body, and great off the edge. Although he probably doesnt have the upper body strength of Crable either but I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Michigan is in terrific position with Frost, even if a coaching change does happen. Similar to Blake Countess, he'll go to  Michigan regardless who is coaching there.
