FIVE ON THE RISE
Five players in their first year of varsity starting at their position that we expect to develop into IMPACT players. A couple of these guys got Varsity snaps last year but were not starters.
JACKSON MUSCHAMP, QB, HAMMOND (6-0, 170), Class of 2020 – Muschamp is plaing in a system perfect for the development of quarterbacks under the tutalege of a very good quarterback coach, Erk Kimrey. Add to that being the son of a Power Five career football coach and you’ve got the cerebral, physical and skill make up of a very good signal caller. He started last season on the defensive side of the ball and played offense behind starter Corbett Glick, who shattered all of Hammond’s passing records. This year, it’s his turn and he has the skills to be very good in his first season as the starter. I believe he is a definite high level FCS prospect at this point and possibly a mid-major type of !A. He is such a good athlete that I believe he could develop into an even higher caliber prospect.
BRIYON WRIGHT, DE, BYRNES (6-2, 215), Class of 2020 – The Rebels were very talented last season on defense and Wright did not get a chance to showcase at the Varsity level. But 2018 preseason film demonstrates that this is a kid with a lot of upside. He’s very raw in his skills and even with that rawness demonstrates talent. At this point, he’s still maturing from a skills standpoint but when he realizes how to be explosive forward he is going to be chaotic to offensive backfields.
DALLAZ CORBITT, DE, GRAY COLLEGIATE (6-6, 220), Class of 2019 – Basketball player who has finally been talked into playing football. This kid is a sub 4.7 40. Very raw in football skills, as he hasn’t played football since his freshman year. He has no film but has four offers based on his camp performances this Summer. I think he extremely raw but when the light comes on, he has a chance to be one of the best in this 2019 Class. He’s been offered by Alabama A&M, Coastal Carolina, UMASS and Tulane.
DESHAWN BOYD, RB, WESTWOOD (5-8, 185), CLASS OF 2020 – Boyd was in the Westwood program as a sophomore but was not quite ready from a skills maturity standpoint to take the reigns as the full time varsity running back. This year, he’s ran hard in scrimmage and has the patience from the backfield to let the play develop and get through the traffic. According to head coach Dustin Curtis, no one outworks him in the weight room. He’s got an explosiveness that can create separation. I like him in the pistol this off-season because he seems to have better vision from there. He could be a difference maker for the Redhawks behind three returning offensive linemen.
JON HALL, RB, DUTCH FORK (5-11, 175), CLASS OF 2020 – Hall has come up through the Dutch Fork system and played a support role in the ground game in 2017. He’s got lethal speed (sub 4.5) and has an explosve burst. He’s a slasher in traffic and seems to be able to slide off of would be tacklers. I like him as a productive offensive player that could also be used on the perimeter as a receiver. Expect good things from this young man.
