TOP 2024 FB RECRUITS
As featured on College Football Today RokFin top 2024 FB recruits breaking news.
CLASS OF 2024
Evaluating the class of 2024 for the second time around was one of the most gut wrenching and disheartening experiences I have had to deal with throughout the course of my scouting career. Learning about the tragic loss of one of the most gifted rising freshmen in the nation, brought on an onslaught of emotions that made it very hard to concentrate on just football. While remembering all of the fallen soldiers that served our great country, I also began to pray for the Utley family, Coach Anthony Brown and the Hillsboro HS, Tennessee community. EJ Utley had an immense amount of potential that would have inevitably translated into becoming one of the highest rated recruits in the nation and the fact that two teenagers with “no motif” took his life on his front porch, should have caused more concern for the safety of our children nationally. After learning how much Coach Anthony Brown and the Hillsboro community admired EJ as a student-athlete and from studying his very early overall body of work as a teenager. I want everyone to remember EJ Utley, even though I never was given the opportunity to meet EJ in person, I can’t imagine the pain that his family has been going through since the loss of such an outstanding overall person. In an effort of constant growth as a nation, we need to remember the disdainful actions that are taking away future high contributing members of our society, while bonding together and starting to formulate solutions that can eliminate these enormous losses for the United States of America. The only positive thing I was able to find throughout the entirety of analyzing the circumstances surrounding the loss of EJ Utley, was the fact that his new trainer in heaven is the grand master of universal design. Meaning, EJ is not only safe, but he is being trained to be the God’s wingman for eternity. After chatting with EJ’s new trainer in Heaven recently, his highly advanced and accelerated training has him ready to take flight. Once again, my deepest condolences to the Utley Family and Coach Anthony Brown, be strong, be courageous and thank you for molding EJ into an outstanding overall human being. To all of the recruits in every class, take care of business, but do everything in your power to protect one another and as Coach Anthony Brown stated, make sure you let your brothers know how much you love them and use every minute that God grants you on this earth to make it a better place.
"And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.
“Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared."
"Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?"
"My God sent his angel and shut the lions' mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no harm.”
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.
And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.”
Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back,
Immediately an angel of the Lord struck him down, because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and breathed his last.
"For they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection."
The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers,
And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
"So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous"
"For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution,"
"For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone."
2 Peter 2:11
Whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a blasphemous judgment against them before the Lord.
See you soon kid and thank you for the contributions you made to society and keep up the outstanding work with your new trainer. God gained one heck of a warrior angel to deliver his people from darkness and I look forward to watching you compete in the near future. The opponent doesn't stand a chance, even if it's a dragon. - Coach Trout
TOp 2024 FOOTBALL RECRUIT 5'11,190 DE/DT MAGnuson LOTT University of DETROIT - Jesuit (MI) Scouting Report
TOP 2024 FOOTBALL RECRUIT
Top 2024 football recruit DE Magnuson Lott recruiting & scouting update
DE Magnuson Lott
Class of 2024
U of Detroit - Jesuit
GPA - 3.4
Top 2024 D-Line recruit Magnuson Lott had a phenomenal Freshmen campaign and has been rapidly rising up many prestigious D1 football teams recruiting boards, as he exhibited many early athletic attributes of the next premier edge rusher in the world of College Football Today. From visiting with Mr & Mrs. Lott recently and learning more about Magnuson's relentless work ethic on & off the field, I began to realize that the foundation for this young man's career is set to explode in the coming future. Lott was also a key contributor on Special Teams for Detroit Catholic in 2020, as you will see the "Swedish Monster" use a beautiful power move to rapidly penetrate the A gap and block a PAT attempt on the very first play of his 2020 highlight's. On the very next play, Lott can be witnessed torching the opposing offensive line and using his extreme quickness to rapidly close in on the QB for a sack. When you combine his overall versatility on the defensive front, along with his brilliant football IQ and high motor, you start to see why Lott projects as one of the top 2024 edge rushers in the 2024 football recruiting class. He does a masterful job using his uncanny upper body strength in hand to hand combat off the snap of the football and Magnuson could arguably have the quickest fire off (FO) with his blazing 4.8, 40 speed when coming off the edge. The Swedish Monster is one of the best in the nation at holding the edge against the run game, as he is easily able to maintain leverage using his inside arm and locate ball carriers to hog tie them, while demonstrating outstanding overall tackling technique. What I really value about Lott's play on the D-Line is the fact he also is demonstrating the abilities to put his hand in the dirt and plow through the opposition using his bull rush.
40 yard dash - 4.8
5-10-5 shuttle - 4.35

He proves to have the athletic skill-set to also be able to fit into a hybrid OLB role and is one of the most fierce edge rushers coming out of the very talented State of Michigan. Magnuson has great lateral movement when scraping down the line of scrimmage and is a very sure tackler upon arrival at the football.

TOP 2023 ATHLETE RECRUIT 5'10,170 CONNOR THERIAULT WANDO HS (SC) ELITE SCOUTING REPORT
2023 ALL AMERICAN FB RECRUIT
Top 2023 ATH Connor Theriault update - 2023 All-American FB recruit Connor Theriault is the definition of a total package football recruit and after re-evaluating Theriault's Sophomore campaign, I have named him to my 2023 All-American team as a defensive back. The brilliant 5'10", 180 pound Wando defensive Warrior is arguably one of the most intriguing prospects I have had the honor to scout, as his relentless pursuit of perfection has been visibly noticed through his growth on & off the field of play. Conner's academic excellence off the field landed him in the prestigious Duke talent identification program (DUKE TIP), as he boasts a 4.130 GPA and is a member of the National Society of HS Scholars. After re-evaluating Conner's 2020 season highlight's and his stellar tackling abilities, as well as his innate ability to weave through traffic on kickoff team, he also could transition into an OLB role in the near future. His versatility on the defensive side of the football and on special teams will make him an instant impact recruit at the next level, as his potential is limitless with the optimal growth he has exhibited since the release of his August 3rd, 2020 scouting report. Theriault is very adept in both man & zone coverage schemes and is able to stay in the hip pocket of receiving targets, while keenly being able to diagnose and quickly close gaps in the running game. He is able to utilize a nearly flawless "rugby style" tackling technique upon arrival at ball carriers, as you will see Connor continually sweep the legs of backs to bring them abruptly to the turf. The overall acceleration Conner demonstrates in both workouts and on the field, gives him a clear advantage when making up ground in the passing game to deflect passes and his overall body of work exemplifies what it means to be a College Football Today All-American football recruit.
Top 2023 athlete recruit Connor Theriault will be highly recruited at all levels of College Football Today, as he has been selected as a Pre-Season Academic All-American. He aspires to pursue a career in Biology and Genetics, as he could be one of the most brilliant recruits in the 2023 football recruiting class. Connor also exhibits cerebral play on the gridiron of South Carolina and we expect him to have a breakout season on Varsity for the Wando Warriors football team. Theriault is pound for pound one of the most gifted defensive players in the State of South Carolina and is one of the surest tacklers you will watch on tape. He has outstanding overall athletics, as he has very visible 4.6 speed, burned a 4.18 shuttle and was able to leap 8'9" while performing the broad jump. He has very good upper body strength and bench pressed 185 X 7, as he is an extremely hard worker and trains intuitively. I expect him to shoot up the College Football Today 2023 Top 300 football recruit rankings this season, after he begins to acclimate himself to the Varsity football level. Check out his 2019 JV highlight's and read more below!
2023 TOP ATH RECRUIT
2023 top ATH recruit Connor Theriault is one of the most athletic 2023 football recruits on the defensive side of the football, after evaluating his 2019 highlight's and possesses a brilliant upside on and off the field. Connor reads plays instinctively from the MLB position and shows outstanding acceleration when attacking the football, while also being a very sure hog tying tackler for the Wando HS defense. Theriault uses his body extremely well when fending off would be blockers and has outstanding overall flexibility when maneuvering through traffic. He proves to be able to cover from sideline to sideline and with added mass over the next few years, could pan out to also be a highly coveted LB recruit in the future. Connor currently carries a 4.035 GPA and has many high academic college football programs inquiring about his future services. I obviously am highly intrigued with the overall potential Theriault has in his body of work thus far and am fully anticipating him to climb the step ratings ladder in the future.

2021 FCS FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
The 2021 FCS Football Championship game kicks off at 1:00 P.M. and will feature the undefeated Southland Conference Champions Sam Houston State vs the 7 & 1 Missouri Valley Conference Champion South Dakota State Jackrabbits. Sam Houston State looks to cap off a historic undefeated 2021 FCS spring football season, against a South Dakota St team that has won 7 straight FCS contests in very convincing fashion and is firing on all cylinders. Both squads are loaded with future FCS NFL Draft prospects and have boasted better recruiting classes than many FBS teams the past 5 to 6 seasons, while building their teams into solidified FCS Championship contenders.
SOUTH DAKOTA ST FOOTBALL
South Dakota St football was able to crush any hopes of Coach K.C Keeler being reunited against the team he led to his first FCS Championship title, as they obliterated the Delaware Blue Hens in the FCS Playoff Semifinals by a score of 33 to 3. This was the Blue Hens first loss on the 2021 Spring FCS football season and South Dakota State looked like an unstoppable well-oiled machine on both sides of the football. Throughout Coach Stiegelmeier's 24 year tenure at South Dakota State, he has accumulated a 166 & 105 record, while securing 10 FCS playoff bids and today will be Jackrabbits first ever FCS Football Championship appearance. Both FCS Championship contenders were able to knock off perennial FCS football powerhouse North Dakota State and Sam Houston State ousted the James Madison Dukes in the FCS football semifinals, who are a contender year in and year out for the FCS Football crown.
K.C Keeler was in training camp with the USFL Stars with my father David Trout and saw his action as a Head Football coach with the Profs of Rowan University. Keeler was able to lead the Profs to five NJAC Championships and was hired by the Delaware Blue Hens in 2002. In only his second season as Head Coach, Keeler led the Fightin' Blue Hens to an FCS Championship crown in 2003 and three total FCS championship appearances. The former Eddie Robinson Coach of The Year & ESPN Top 150 Collegiate Coaches has now compiled an astounding 233-95-1 coaching record, while being known across the National Football League as one of the best developers of next level talent. Both coaches are true builders of what are turning out to be pretty glamorous destinations as future homes for top recruits in the world of College Football Today. (Note: The new College Football Today will launch on July 4th, 2021)

TOP 2022 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Many of the top 2022 football recruits in the Elite Scouting Database and College Football Today 2022 Top 800+ have been analyzed for nearly two years, while also conducting NFL Draft prospect rankings from the 2019 to 2023 NFL Draft classes. Obviously the 2021 NFL Draft pick & 2022 NFL Draft prospect comparison's below are very premature, but I was able to find many similar traits that project well in being an identifiable NFL Draft prospect in the future. Below are a few I have already identified and I will have hundreds more, along with scouting notes on each 2021 NFL Draft pick or future NFL Draft prospect to top FB recruit comparisons.
Top 2022 Arkansas DB recruit Myles Rowser - Las Vegas 2nd RD pick FS Trevon Moehrig-Woodard (TCU)
I also like Jevon Holland or Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, because Myles Rowser not only possesses the athletic attributes and build of a top tier NFL Draft pick, but also has an extremely high football IQ. I have watched Myles dominate in man to man match-ups with many of the top receivers in the nation and he has proven to possess the neural plasticity to adapt to playing up in the 8 man box as a SS or OLB. Standing 6'1" and 185 pounds, we could see Rowser grow into a 6'2"-6'3" version of Owusu-Koramoah with his ability to rapidly cover ground and/or a premier FS/SS. All three of the NFL Draft DB prospects mentioned can be utilized in a multitude of ways on the defensive side of the football, which was able to enhance thier overall 2021 NFL Draft stock. Rowser's versatility and ability to adapt, react and learn in new surroundings and environments, was one of the main reasons he was ranked the number one recruit in the Class of 2022 at College Football Today.
Some of these below could change as we move along, as I have been watching and dissecting film from over 800 2021 NFL Draft picks & 2022 NFL Draft prospects. I also will be adding hundreds more and all of the notes accumulated on top NFL Draft prospects & top FB recruits the past few re-ranks.

2021 NFL DRAFT PICK GRADES
2021 NFL Draft pick grades started to formulate while I was sitting alongside many top NFL front office executives at the 2017 NFL Reese's Senior Bowl & were able to help evolve my top football recruit scouting process, aka the Scout Trout Elite Prospect and/or S.T.E.P ratings. This complex formula was generated by building a dynamic programming algorithm that was capable of remembering past results and outcomes, throughout the history of the rapidly evolving American football scouting process. There are millions of positive & negative variables that can play out throughout the course of a prospect or top football recruits career, which can either radically enhance or rapidly erode a prospects overall stock. This required the creation of an optimal substructure, that contained the best solutions for hundreds of sub-problems that exist in the football scouting & recruiting process, which could also utilize an overlapping sub-problems equation to store the outcomes of those positive and/or negative outcomes to those solutions. The 2021 NFL Draft scouting process was a true test to see if these new additions to the algorithmic formulas would succeed at the pro level, while I also learned how to better myself as the world's top American football scout. Given the circumstances surrounding the 2020-2021 Covid-19 ridden college football season and with the 2021 NFL Combine being cancelled, my 6th year of NFL Draft scouting was conducted solely by using the NFL Draft S.T.E.P ratings algorithmic formulas. The 2021 NFL Mock Draft's were formed in more of a 2021 NFL Draft Big Board, while also obtaining direct insider information from the top NFL front office executives in the NFL Today.
2021 NFL PROSPECT RANKINGS
After compiling the College Football Today 2021 NFL Draft prospect rankings, I started to formulate a 2021 NFL Draft QB composite prospect rankings algorithm that calculates ratings using the top 10 NFL Draft prospect rankings indexed by Google. I will be releasing those results in the my next NFL Draft article, but I got to see the wide array of opinions on nearly 400 NFL Draft prospects by "top NFL Draft experts" and mostly all of them were incorrect after the first ten NFL Draft picks. There are thousands of different offensive & defensive football philosophies that exist in the NFL & collegiate game, which is why the 2021 NFL Mock Draft 4.0 was slightly different than my actual NFL Draft prospect rankings. I believe Trevor Lawrence is the best fit for a high octane Urban Meyer spread offense and was the best overall conventional "Pro-Style" QB in this year's NFL Draft class, but out of the the top 3, I believe he will need the most development before taking the field. He has everything you look for in a top flight franchise quarterback and if the College Football Today Freshmen of The Year ends up being a bust, the responsibility will fall on the shoulders of the Jaguars coaching staff. As far as a GM's philosophy in selecting players in the NFL Draft, I am not searching high & low for projects that might pan out down the road, I want a guy that is capable of coming in and winning now and I believe Wilson & Fields possess the dynamics to single handily take over a football game.
