TOP FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top football recruits at Scout Trout Elite have either been on the road or training for up and coming college football recruiting camps in which they were invited. As our Houston combine portion was winding down, I had already gotten word that 2020 Top ATH Recruit Matthias Algarin was up a NDSU, but very shortly after, got a message stating that the Algarin family was meeting with the Northwestern Wildcats! Algarin also recently has been posting some of the best track times and numbers in all of the nation, while preparing to bring his 2020 Top ATH recruit talents to the gridiron. When it comes to being a overall athlete, not many compare to Matthias Algarin and his ability to do anything he sets his brilliant mind to.
2021 TOP WR RECRUIT
2021 Top WR recruit Branden Alvarez has gained major interest from big time FBS programs across the nation and is rated highly in our Top 2021 WR recruit rankings. I also got word yesterday that Branden Alvarez has received a offer from BYU football, which garners his first offer of his illustrious, but very young career. We expect to see big things out of this spectacular receiving target, as he has a Top 2020 QB recruit in Carter Freedland tossing him the rock on time and with precision. This should be a big junior year for Branden Alvarez, as he will continue to garner offers to top level college football programs, as a he will be a instant leader on and off the field for whatever college team he ends up signing with.
FOOTBALL COMBINE TRAINING
We had our first top recruit session and had a very good football combine training session that was able drop 2020 top ATH recruit Jared Pickens from a 4.9,40 yard dash to a 4.65,40 yard dash. We also were able to help 2020 Top OL Recruit Andrew Cervantes go from a 5.7,40 yard dash, to a 5.32,40 yard dash. Both players also ran great shuttle times for their respective positions, as well as L-drills. Footage can be seen below of us working at Gragg City park in Houston,Texas with 2020 top football recruits Jared Pickens & Andrew Cervantes!
2020 TOP OL RECRUITS
2020 top OL recruits Andrew Cervantes & Jared Pickens are two very different type of recruits when it comes to what positions could be playing at the next level. With Jared being a 2020 top long snapper recruit with 4.65,40 speed and the ability to block, while catching the ball out of the backfield. He fits the mold of a fullback or H-back at the next level, while also possessing very good pass rushing ability off the edge. He shows the ability as a center to do things no man his size should be able to do, while using quickness and leverage to dominate his opponents. Getting to blocks quickly and efficiently is also something I have seen quite often in Andrew's game and he is a pulverizing force as a pulling guard. Andrew also is being recruited as a defensive linemen, as a nose guard, as his extremely strong base is very hard to move with the amount of strength Andrew possesses.
2020 TOP FULLBACK RECRUIT
2020 top fullback recruit Jared Pickens showed great route running ability after producing outstanding combine numbers, as well as soft hands when catching the football out of the backfield. Both Andrew and Jared were able to pick up college style concepts very quickly and put them into action on the playing field. These two also worked very well together when long snapping, as Andrew proved he also capable of long snapping at the next level and also has great athletics for 2020 OL recruit. Both recruits have started their recruitment to the world of College Football and are off to a great start with offers and major interest starting to come in from the FCS college football levels. With continued growth and improvements both athletically and on tape, Andrew and Pickens should have double-digits in the offers category when their recruitment is complete, as both are already highly coveted recruits moving forward in the world of College Football Today.
SUMMER FOOTBALL CAMPS
Scheduling our spring and summer football camps around our top football recruits schedules is easy when the top football recruit wants to improve in every facet of their game. This is also a chance for athletes to show off other skill-sets that they may not get to use on their high school football team. Most great football players will fill roles for their high school teams based off of a teams need, rather than their natural position on the football field. Being able to show college coaches the versatility you bring to their program is key and most top football recruits can do anything they are called upon to do for the good of their unit, at the next level. We also teach each football combine drill and have been able to visibly identify the changes needed in technique to help recruits drop substantially all of their combine numbers. (Film and reports from camps delivers to our college coaches database almost daily)

TOP FOOTBALL RECRUIT RANKINGS
Top football recruit rankings brought over 20,000 people to our website since we released our top 2021 football recruit rankings at College Football Today and is still climbing. This is thanks to all of the athletes hard work and dedication, while they look at small increments that make absolutely no sense. Having watched millions of college football recruits on tape, being a top football recruit does not always mean seeing your name on a website. This is why I started my national recruit rankings, not only to prove a very valid point, but also to open the eyes of aspiring young athletes who do not like being told they can't attain their dreams of playing on scholarship in the world of College Football Today. We can be like Dabo and talk about the why's later, but let's look at some of our Scout Trout recruits below and see what has been going on lately in their recruiting process.
2020 TOP 300 OL RECRUITS
2020 top 300 OL recruits have been seeing a lot of action as of late and newly appointed five star OL recruit has come off the board to the Georgia Tech Yellow-Jackets. Cade helped pave the way for Scout Trout 2019 All-American running back Jay Stanton (Samford 2019) and has made a excellent choice both athletically, as well as academically by committing to Georgia Tech University.
2020 TOP OL RECRUIT
2020 top OL recruit Andrew Cervantes has been a rising recruit out of South Texas and will be attending out Houston football recruit camp this Saturday at Gragg Park's football field. Andrew has been receiving D1 interest as of late and will be working with me and Coach Cruz on various football drills for scouting purposes. We also will be working on combine technique and testing top football recruits in our pipeline program, along with those who wish to test and get film for college coaches nationally. Andrew has recently moved up in our 2020 Top 300 to #173 overall and looks to improve his S.T.E.P rating this weekend in Houston,Texas. - Linemen 2020 Recruits Database
TOP 2020 OC RECRUIT
Top 2020 OC recruit Jansen Harvey has moved up to #262 overall in our 2020 Top 300 and for very good reason, as he is gaining major momentum heading into the 2019 high school football season in Los Angeles, California. Jansen proved to be much more than just a top 2020 OC recruit in the footage below, but also a outstanding pass rusher who is able to gain great leverage on his opponent and possesses a very high motor on both sides of the ball. 2020 OL recruit database
FIVE STAR LINEBACKER RECRUIT
Checking in with five star linebacker recruit Gabriel Means and he now is bench pressing 225 X 15 times and is looking the part of a five star college football recruit. He also will be attending our Houston football recruit camp and looking to solidify his positioning in the 2020 top 300 football recruits moving forward into the 2019 Texas high school football season. Gabriel is a big time FBS target right now and has taken visits to the likes of Baylor, Abilene Christian and many other top tier college football programs this spring. I am very excited to meet Gabriel in person and see that blazing speed and athletic skill set that college coaches covet nationally.
2020 TOP OT RECRUIT
2020 Top OT recruit Chez Jennings Jr has been reclassified after receiving numerous FCS football offers as he has decided to attend the prestigious Taft Academy in Middlebury,CT. He has now moved into the 5th position overall for 2020 OL recruits, as he possesses a enormous upside that the likes of TCU and Baylor have also noticed in the world of College Football Today. I could see Chez being one of the most highly acclaimed 2020 OT recruits, as he should receive numerous power five offers once he matures another year at Taft Academy. 2020 OL recruits database
TOP FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top football recruits are not hard to come by these days, as mostly everyone in the sport of American football has the same goal growing up and that is becoming a top football recruit. While many already have a outstanding body of work on and off the field that warrant them being a top football recruit, they will not find their names on national media networks. Typically, four states are able to rake in over half of the college football signings and for good reason, as in many parts of GA/CA/TX & FL have proven to be recruiting hot beds in the past. These players are also very well coached 90% of the time and have structure at home, while possessing a devout faith not only in themselves, but a higher power. But what about the other 46 states that are lucky enough to ink the letter of intents of less than half of the FBS signings and players in these "hot bed" states that clearly exemplify what it takes to be a top football recruit? Well, some of us just have to stand out a little more and shine a little brighter as the process evolves, as we must play the deck of cards that are dealt to us daily in a productive manner to gain leverage on our own individual destinies. In "He has risen" PT.1, we release our 2021 top 250 football recruits, along with some of our rising 2020 recruits, as we update 2020 and start moving towards the 2022 college football recruit rankings at College Football Today. Happy Easter from Coach Trout & College Football Today!
2021 TOP 250 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
2021 top 250 football recruits features a lot of players who are rising in our sport as top college football recruits and for very good reason, as they all possess intriguing skill sets as up and coming college football recruits. Many are already on the national radar and were put on the scene at a very young age, while others are emerging as new top recruits in the 2021 NCAA football recruiting class. Full top 250 can be viewed at the end of this article, on our home page and on CollegeFootballToday.Org, with links to each individual recruit position ranking pages.
FIVE STAR FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Five star football recruits have a slightly different algorithm at Scout Trout Elite & College Football Today, as we have watched nearly over 80% of these five star recruits turn into so-called "busts" in the game of American football. From steady research, most of the recruits being warranted five stars are not even close to some of the athletes that have been located with zero stars. Some five star recruits find themselves at the junior college level, as they forgot the "student" part of student-athlete and rested on that five star title to skate by not only football, but life. If we preach resilience, growth and educate our top recruits in a more productive fashion, than maybe they will pan out as five star recruits in the future, after the earn that title.

2020 FOOTBALL RECRUIT RANKINGS
2020 football recruit rankings at College Football Today & Scout Trout Elite are now being updated and we have brought on some veteran college/pro football scouts to help us in our efforts. They have been added to our RowShare docs and wished to be named at a later date. That being said, as a former top rated recruit on Rivals, I was always told by my father, who kicked for the Steelers & USFL Stars, not to put much stock in what the football media ranking system deemed me, but rather that I was never good enough and had to get better daily to ultimately attain my goals. So still to this day, I do not put much stock in what others in our sport have to say about me or the solution I created to enhance our games recruit rankings. Instead, I try and create new ways for us all to succeed daily in a pretty cut-throat media driven football recruiting world. Simply put, as a top football recruit you should not let anyone else define who you are or what you are capable of achieving, as no one can measure what a athlete has beating inside them.

2019 TOP 300 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
2019 top 300 football recruits will have some players reclassified, as they were a year younger than the other 2019 top 300 football recruits and have been re-ranked in the 2020 college football recruit rankings. These players are also now permitted to compete in All-American Bowl games like the Army All-American Bowl and will be considered 2020 college football recruits moving forward. We have already added Top 2020 OL recruit Chez Jennings Jr to the list, as he will be attending the high academic prep football academy at Taft in Middlebury, Connecticut. Chez had many FCS offers, but has since heard from the likes of Bayor, TCU and many top college football programs across the nation. With Chez still growing as a student-athlete, the Tres Barbosa route is one that will lead him to being the top 2020 junior college OL recruit in all of College Football Today, just like our star studded Quarterback Brayden Hawkins, who will be slinging the pigskin at Northwest Mississippi and looking to reign supreme over EMCC.
(Other 2020 OL recruits who have moved up in our S.T.E.P ratings are Top 2020 OC Recruit Jansen Harvey & Top 2020 OL recruit Andrew Cervantes.) More news coming soon!
CFB RECRUIT RANKINGS
CFB recruit rankings at College Football Today are conducted by Scout Trout Elite LLC and have evolved since the inception of our 2019 recruit rankings. Our new five star recruits automatically received FBS offers after they were nominated as five star recruits and we will be determining are new 2020 five star recruits today, as we continue our top CFB recruit rankings updates at College Football Today and Scout Trout Elite LLC. Visit our 2021 recruit rankings pages at CollegeFootballToday.Org for clickable "Hudl" links and copy/paste links on our 2021 Top 250 at College Football Today.
TOP 2020 ATHLETE RECRUITS
Top 2020 Athlete recruits are athletes who can do many things on the football field in the world of college football today. Some of these recruits are playing out of position in high school in order to help their program succeed, as they could be light in players in one area or another. Recruits like Top 2020 Athlete recruit Jared Pickens, are accustom to doing what's needed for their ball clubs with no questions asked and are able to deliver in dominating fashion. When you are 5'10,200LB's, not many view you as a top offensive linemen recruit, but many do view him as a top long snapping recruit at the next level. Knowing how the likes of Mike Webster developed into one of the best centers ever in NFL history and how he was only about 6'1,255LBS (listed*), shows me that Jared certainly possesses the same type of strength as a dominating offensive center.
TOP 2020 FULLBACK RECRUITS
I have been able to convert many top 2020 fullback recruits from the offensive line position the past few years and I really see Jared excelling as a fullback at the next level or at the H-Back/Tight End positions. He also is very good pass rusher, as seen in one on ones at our 2019 All-American showcase in Dallas,Texas. Jared was one of the players who completed the events through the extremely windy and cold conditions, while showing how resilient of college football recruit he has become. Jared has shown the ability to catch the ball extremely well out of the backfield or lined up anywhere on the football field, while also having very good route running ability. When it comes to opening up holes per play design against some behemoth football players in the Dallas,Texas area, none are as gifted as Jared Pickens, as he also has superior athletics for a interior linemen in the weight room. Jared could be on the road here very soon, as he has been invited to visit colleges in Connecticut and Missouri, as of late. We will be meeting with Jared and his family soon to shoot more long snapping and top ATHLETE recruit videos during our college football recruit camp season.
TOP 2020 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top 2020 football recruits have been on the move all over the recruiting map and top 2020 ATH recruit Matthias Algarin was just spotted in a North Dakota Fighting Hawks uniform at College Football Today. I have been up to the Fighting Hawks campus and I am sure he had a wonderful time with the brilliant coaching minds at the University of North Dakota. Matthias is the ultimate competitor and shows the ability to break a game open for any college football team, at any given moment with the football in his hands. As a defender, you won't find too many shutdown defensive backs like Matthias. When you watch Matthias Algarin return kicks and add in the fact he dominated the Rivals Dallas 3 Stripe camp, as the number one overall performer at the event, you begin to see why Matthias Algarin is becoming such a coveted ATHLETE recruit in the world of College Football Today.
TOP 2022 QB RECRUITS
Top 2022 QB recruits at Scout Trout Elite are some of the most talented up and coming 2022 QB recruits in the nation. As you can see via the data from 247 Sports, Khalib Johnson is now on the map nationally and has been delivering brilliant displays of quarterback play at camps nationally.
TOP QUARTERBACK RECRUITS
Top Quarterback recruits at Scout Trout Elite can be found below, as well as at College Football Today's top quarterback recruit rankings.

TIGER WOODS 2019 MASTER CHAMPION
Tiger Woods is the 2019 Masters Champion and is now able to laugh in the face of adversity, as he has overcome quite a bit due to relationship issues off the golf course. As a avid golfer as a child, I grew up in a time where Tiger Woods dominated the game of golf and he was a very entertaining player to watch. When he hit his debacle off the course many had jokes about Tiger Woods and his character, but what speaks volumes in the world of sport is the ability to overcome adversity time and time again. I applaud Tiger Woods for once again finding his golf stroke and surrounding himself with the right people in his life to help him overcome the haters and smile, as he wins yet another Masters title. Tiger will most likely now be one of the favorites to take home the US OPEN, along with the British Open, as he attempts to reach Jack Nicklaus' 18 major titles.
NCAA FOOTBALL EVAL PERIOD
NCAA football eval period begins tomorrow and having already thoroughly evaluated the recruits in our Scout Trout Elite database in the 2020, 2021, 2022 & 2023 recruit position databases, I believe they all have the ability to play at the collegiate football level. With that being said, there are many scholarship levels in NCAA football and even NAIA, as well as Junior College Football award college football scholarships. Click below to view our Elite Scouting Database and use scroll bar to move through recruit position databases or use drop down menu at the top of the website.
2020 COLLEGE FOOTBALL RECRUITING
The 2020 college football recruiting class is our fifth college football recruiting class that we have worked the past four years. This is one of the most talented classes we have seen at Scout Trout, as well as College Football Today and we wish all football recruits the best of luck at getting seen by the college coaching staffs during this evaluation period. This period will last until May 31st and college football recruiting boards will start to finalize, change or form at each member institution.
TOP 2020 OL RECRUIT
New top 2020 OL recruit Jansen Harvey recently submitted a new highlight reel to Scout Trout Elite and he gain valuable S.T.E.P points right before NCAA evaluation period begins across the landscape of College Football Today. Harvey showed outstanding quickness, just like he did in his 2018 season highlight's and also showed his ability on the defensive side of the ball as a pass rusher. Jansen is extremely quick off of the football in the video below and shows a relentless motor that is combined with great technique, along with hand placement. I really like Jansen as a top OC or OG recruit, but he could also prove to be a brute force on either side of the football with his overall athletic skill set, as a top interior linemen recruit.
