For our second off-season, we will be releasing to the public our Defensive Skill & Specialists Scout Sheet. It will not include the numeric ratings seen on the same sheets seen by college coaches but will use a color-coded guide. It will not have player’s academic and contact info- which will be seen by colleges.
What’s on it?
182 organized and evaluated 2021-2024 West Virginia Linebackers, Defensive Backs, Kickers, Punters, and Longsnappers.
Where can I see it?
You can download it by clicking the link below. It is an Excel file so it is best to viewed on a computer.
Do colleges have to pay?
No, colleges will not pay for our scout sheets. They will be sent an all-in-one scout sheet that includes further information to assist in the recruiting process.
Chase Henson (Spring Mills) 2021
Braxton Todd (Martinsburg) 2022
Brogan Brown (Hurricane) 2022
TIE – 5. Christian Gist
Gist got on the state radar as a sophomore and had another solid season as a junior. He probably is the strongest and hardest hitter on this list. Acting as a true mike, he handles himself extremely well inside the box. He knocks ball carriers back and has a great first step. Gist also gets plenty of opportunities to develop his ability to play in space and in the hole for pass coverage.
TIE – 5. Zane Brumfield
Brumfield came along nicely as a multi-positional player. He has seen action as a quarterback, receiver, defensive back, and his final role was as an edge player off the line of scrimmage. He definitely has the size and leverage ability to handle himself against offensive lines. His quick twitch lets him wreck plays or put on a lot of pressure as a slashing edge rusher.
TIE – 3. Caden Biser
Biser will bd making a transition from AA to AAA in 2020. After helping lead the best statistical defense at Keyser in 2019, he will now play the very best of the best at Morgantown. Biser is well-sized with physical strength development and great speed. He has a great motor to coincide with a very technical play style that shows a lot of football IQ. He is definitely a top linebacker in the state this year.
TIE – 3. Sam Schuler
Schuler’s stock increased a lot as a junior. At eye test, he doesn’t possess the size of others on the list but his play quickly overcompensates. His instinct is natural, and he comes down hard on plays. He has the best read and react of all linebackers on the list. Schuler’s speed is also valuable which made him dangerous covering flats but also a step-in pass rusher. Expect a big year senior performance for him.
2. Tyrone Washington
Washington was a player we had our eye on for 2019, but he definitely want above and beyond. He used his former secondary-based role to become an incredible tackler in space. Washington was quick, tenacious and finished his tackles. He showed an unteachable gift to distrupt plays. His best attribute is his ability to get down hill fast and in a hurry.
1. Cameron Rice
Rice is one of the most interesting 2021 products there is. Last year, he was a top 10 rated quarterback but suffered an injury early in the season. A new starter rose and Rice found himself at new positions, and he shined. Though his reps are lower than others, his ceiling is immensely high. Using his size and athleticism to his advantage, he showed spurts of incredible pass coverage, run play, and crushing hits. With more practice and prep, his senior year at linebacker could really impress.
