Offers came in from the schools below, thus far.
First off, The Ole Miss Rebels are masterful at producing next level players and Lloyd Murray is nothing less than a 5-Star prospect when you evaluate his style of play. With the amount of D1 FBS offers Murray has received and the talent he exhibits with his teammates for the Hirschi Huskies is remarkable and just happened to remind me of one of my former teammates and the success we had overall as unit at Hargrave Military Academy. Things were not easy at first, adjusting to 5:00AM wake-ups to march to breakfast, attending classes and rigorous military discipline, and then a 2 mile up-hill walk to football practice. Coach Prunty made sure practices were 100 times harder then the games we played and produced Ole Miss products Jerrell Powe and John Jerry–two of my favorite linemen that I got the privilege to watch compete in the National Football League. Murray reminds me a lot of Jerrell Powe in the way he can control a game from the interior line. When I first evaluated Murray, I witnessed a young athletic defensive tackle, who was extremely quick off the football and showed supreme upper body strength.
The ability to move at 310LBS on the interior line is quite fun to watch, as Lloyd Murray pummels his opponents and the impact he brings upon contact is something I also witnessed in Jerrell Powe and Callahan Bright, while at Hargrave Military Academy. When you watch Lloyd Murray's aggressiveness towards the football below and how quickly he can closes in on the ball carrier, he appears to be a top linebacking prospect with his overall agility. Upon engagement, Lloyd still has a vicious "punch" as he stays low and has great hand placement in order to drive his opponent into the backfield and is extremely quick to the football for his size. Jerrell and Murray have a lot in common athletically and Jerrell could play at 380LBS and still have been effective. But, if Murray can keep his athletics at the skill they are now, while maintaining at least a weight of 330LBS or under, he will be the best defensive tackles in ALL of college football, as his offer list states. Knowing the interior line and their assignments to make a defense thrive in college football, Murray has all the tools to create disruption for opponents nationally just as his predecessor Powe did at Ole Miss and the National Football League.
Silva comes to us from William Floyd HS in New York and will be a extremely valuable addition to any collegiate offense and/or defense. Nick Silva is the epitome of a complete running back and is capable of controlling a football game on the ground from start to finish. Nick could very well be used as a Fullback at the next level, as he would fit perfect as a Georgia Tech style triple-option super back. Silva Bench pressed 225LBS 15 times and keeps his powerful legs churning to break through tackles, as a knife slides through butter. On the very first play of his highlights above, Silva is seen hitting the hole with great acceleration, while using great agility and strength to break free of defenders. He then lowers his shoulder and shows outstanding lower body power to run right over the defender, to make his way all the way to the end zone for the score. Silva shows his short yardage ability on the goal line the very next play and is able to bull-doze through THREE defenders, on his way for one of his 40 Touchdowns for his historic career to this point. Nick is also a very keen linebacker, who has a great football IQ that is shown on the next play of his highlight's. You can see Nick's head keying on the motion man and he is able to make a great break on the football, after very quickly identifying the play. After, Nick makes a beautiful interception and is able to take the ball back for a touchdown. Silva is seen firing through the "A" gap on the very next play and is in the backfield so quickly, the ball carrier never has a chance to secure the ball, as Nick pummels his opponent into fumbling the football. I love Nick's "in and out" style of running, while maneuvering through traffic, as he is extremely tough to bring down once he gets into the open field. Silva shows his ability in the screen game, after another exhilarating touchdown run and great awareness in moving the ball to the proper arm, while welcoming the on-coming safety with a BRUTAL stiff arm! Silva is able to identify the cut-back lane and also can change directions in a flash, while still being able to accelerate to escape the inferior defenders. Silva is one of those powerful backs, who possesses the rare ability to completely wear out a defense at the next level. He is not your typical ground and pound back thou, as at any given moment he will take advantage of a defenders over-pursuit and break into daylight for a long gain. At 1:49 into his film, Nick once again hits the designed running lane very quickly only to find nowhere to run. He is able to then make one of the best spin moves I have seen in the box out of a Class of 2019 running back and uses his stiff arm, while running through three defenders who appear to fear this authoritative back from Mastic Beach, NY. Silva makes another thrilling play on defense the very next play and once again, makes a decisive read on the ball and shows great concentration making the interception on the deflected pass. The beauty about Nick's play on the gridiron is a very compelling mix of old school football, that combines some of the best athletics and football IQ I have witnessed on tape out of the Northeast region of America. With the ability to do so many things on a football field it is going to be a honor to work with this young man, as I have now officially nominated him, as a Scout Trout Early Selection All-American! Since 8th grade Nick has dominated with the football in his hands and knows the game of football so well, that he is able to switch sides of the ball and DOMINATE on the other side of the football, as a Linebacker. This fabulous prospect is destined for great things on either side of the football and with a 3.62 GPA, is another "Total Package" prospect that we have identified, as a ELITE COLLEGE Football prospect for the Class of 2019. The tackling technique alone that Sliva uses, after expeditiously identifying plays at linebacker, reminds me of Brain Urlacher, who was a safety at U of New Mexico and and also a Hall of Fame linebacker for the Chicago Bears. Congrats on being selected as a Class of 2019 Scout Trout Early All-American nomination and keep progressing quicker then your competitors, on and off the field to create your path to greatness in the world of collegiate football.
Jalen Barton comes to the Scout Trout All-American Bowl roster from Enterprise High School in the great football state of Alabama! Barton is an extremely fluent and gifted runner when working out of the Gun-Spread formation and is able to hit the designed running lane with great acceleration, which is combine with a very powerful style of running. The read/option attack, which is used heavily in today's world of college football, is displayed heavily above in his exhilarating footage from his junior season. Once Barton squares his shoulders and gets moving downfield, he is seen very keenly using the cut-back to gain extra chunks of yards moving the chains for the Enterprise HS Wildcats! When used in short yardage or down by the goal line, Barton will slice through your defense, as he often gets through the hole so quickly, the defensive linemen are not even out of their stance yet! Once he arrives at the "second level", the linebackers are in for a tenacious battle, as Jalen Barton will not be deterred from his final destination. Jalen can be seen executing another read/option play at around :56 seconds and proves to also be a battering ram of a blocker! He uses excellent technique and engages with perfect leverage, while using great hand placement, ensuring the defender cannot come from the backside to make a play on his QB. After a great cut-block, Barton can bee seen getting to the outside and lowering his shoulder, showing that he does not shy away from contact and loves to gain those tough extra yards. Barton is an excellent receiver out of the backfield and you can witness him run a beautiful "out and up" out of the backfield at Troy Universities OTA's. Barton is able to sell the out extremely well on the first part of route and then with the defender still in perfect positioning, make a remarkable over-the-shoulder snag for a TOUCHDOWN! Jalen Barton also shows a great ability to pick up on-coming pass rushers and is able to stop them right in their tracks with his superior blocking technique. Barton is a every down back, that can be used in all three facets that play a critical role in a college style offense, as far a running back is concerned. He is a tremendous runner and can move the chains regularly for your offense, while also being a dynamic receiver, whom I could also see lining up in the slot. When you combine this with his blocking abilities and 3.62 GPA, you have a COMPLETE TOTAL PACKAGE Running Back for the Class of 2019! Congrats Jalen Barton on being selected, as a 2019 Scout Trout Early All-American Selection, and I am excited to work with him going forward into what is going to be a glorious senior campaign on the gridiron!
"Will you explode into pieces or form into a diamond out of the rough?"
This quote has played an intricate role in my life and has made me question how much "pressure" one can withstand before becoming an exploding pipe, instead of a beautifully formed diamond. Creating an equal path to a destination that is sought after by many is never the case in today's society. For most, you must be put under constant daily "PRESSURE" in the form of scrutiny, malicious attacks, and those who simply are "USING" you for what your worth then spitting you back out once you have stopped being useful to them.
In football, the pressure comes in many obvious forms on the football field, but what about off the field?
How do I get evaluated?
This is the part that keeps most high school football players from being recruited at the level their athletics portray on video. This is the part that separates a recruiting board when they start with a range of prospects that coaches/scouts found in their respective recruiting regions. So let's say their are 8 regions that are being scouted and the regions are regions of the USA, like Southwest or Northwest. Each Scout could like 3 or 4 players at one position from each region, and they will bring them back to the office with full reports on all of the athletes vital information. So in essence, there could be 25-30 players at each position now on the college staffs recruiting boards. This is where you MUST know your NCAA recruiting calendar and the timelines set forth for coaches to evaluate you for their programs.

How Scout Trout coaches you through a very intense process and helps with getting your EVALUATION, which most of you never will get by a college coach.
These rules do not apply to the NAIA level of College Football, which most equate to D2 and some conferences, almost 1AA talent across the board. Our database of ALL current FBS and FCS coaches is now 100% thorough and complete. We are hosting our first regional about a week before "EVALUATION PERIOD" begins and coaches can start adding new members to their recruiting boards. We held our All-American Bowl about two weeks before national signing day for Class of 2018, in order to get late D1 FBS/FCS pick ups and fill spots from de-commits and/or ineligible players. This strategy proved to work for MANY of our players, and we just had an All-American linebacker Will Wright from Team North sign with Union College in Kentucky! It is nearly April, and there are still spots open at the D2/NAIA/JUCO and even some FBS/FCS teams! The choice is ultimately yours on how you will create separation from the pack of over 1 million football recruits that exist in America today. Just like how a Wide Receiver creates separation from a Defensive Back or a Linemen and is able to move another man against his will, you must dig deep to find a way to get the job done in a media driven world. We have not only mastered this process for you and provided a direct path to the next level, we have refined the Pipeline program to encompass everything an athlete will need going forth into the world of Collegiate and/or Pro Football.
