William Cryer

JR RB

Height: 5.08

Weight: 175

3 Star Recruit

 

Positives

  • Good vision
  • Shifty runner

Negatives

  • Needs size

Overall

William is a shifty runner that pairs both his good vision and speed well. He catches the ball out of the backfield well, and away from his body, and gets up field quickly. He should look to improve on his ball handling skills and working on hand-offs with his QB during the off-season. Could be a DII prospect.

Dalen Cambre

JR QB/WR

Height: 6.0

Weight: 175

3 Star Recruit

 

Positives

  • Quick release
  • Buys time with his feet

Negatives

  • Needs size

Overall

Dalen has great anticipation skills and throws to receivers to allow for run after catch yardage. He has good vision and keeps his eyes down field while moving around to buy more time with his feet. He has good technique and good arm strength that he couples with a quick release. He could use more bulk in the off-season. Could be a DI FCS or DII prospect.

Sydney Lindon

JR RB/WR

Height: 5.11

Weight: 185

3 Star Recruit

 

Positives

  • Good speed
  • Good strength

Negatives

  • Tendency to grab at ball
  • Needs bulk

Overall

Sydney runs with balance and tenacity. He has good speed and strength and the ability to make defenders miss. He has good hands and catches the ball away from his body. He does sometimes take a false step at the snap of the ball, and also has a tendency to grab at the ball during the quarterback-running back exchange. These both can easily be corrected with practice during the off-season. Could be a DI FCS or DII prospect. Here is a link. https://www.hudl.com/video/3/6029252/59d13a7a66565f04044620e5

Thomas DeLoach

JR G/FB

Height: 5.10

Weight: 230

4 Star Recruit

 

Positives

  • High motor
  • High football IQ

Negatives

  • Needs size

Overall 

Thomas plays with leverage and beats most defensive linemen across from him that are taller and heavier. He has a strong initial punch and quick feet that he uses to set up defenders on key blocks to spring his running back. Thomas has a mean/nasty streak and plays until the whistle. He has a high motor and doesn’t take plays off. He could be used more as a fullback or H-Back at the next level. Could be a DI FBS or FCS prospect.
