Bryce Bevins has a phenomenal body of work through his first three years of his high school career and has all of the characteristics of a stand-out collegiate receiver. With a 3.5 GPA and 1085 SAT score, this high academic and high octane inside or outside receiver shows great ability in the passing game and in his outstanding run blocking. Bryce possesses outstanding athletics in combine testing, as he has ran a 4.6,40 yard dash, along with a 4.0 shuttle and an eye-popping 38" vertical. Bryce is not your typical wide receiver though, which is why he was able to crack our initial slot receiver national rankings list for the Class of 2019. Bryce runs very good routes and the position he appears to be playing in this offense is the almighty H-Back position. As I have said before, this is a player who can play at tight end anywhere in the backfield and line up as an outside receiver. They must be able to dominate in the passing game and are used heavily in the running game to set the edge or get to the 2nd level defenders. Bryce is a tough receiving target and is not afraid to go over the middle of the field and make the tough catches in traffic. On the first play of his All-American footage, Bryce is seen "stemming" the defender to the outside and he is able to hit him with a beautiful move to the inside, while locating the football that is thrown behind him. On this play, he is able to show amazing concentration, as he absorbs a few blows and somehow manages to escape three defenders and take the football for a 65 yard touchdown! He shows more ability to make spectacular catches in traffic, as he once again is able to use his 38" vertical and mental toughness to go up and snag an extremely tough catch in immense traffic downfield. He shows great overall body control and is able to make the necessary adjustments needed to position himself to catch balls that are behind him or that appear to be out of reach. A little under a minute into Bevin's highlights, you will be surprised what a 6'0, 185LB nose guard can do, as he completely exposes the interior linemen by using his outstanding acceleration to blow by the guard, on his way to a QB sack! This gritty and talented class of 2019 athlete shows off his tenacious and keen blocking ability, as he is able to easily control the DB and open up the perfect alley for the receiver catching the screen pass, to burst through for the score. Bryce is seen running some extremely clean "speed outs" and is able to create quick separation from the defender in man coverage with his route running abilities. Lined up at the TE position at 1:34, Bevin shows the outstanding body control I mentioned earlier, as he is able to once again create separation from the defender quickly and then locate the ball thrown behind him. Bevin wastes no time getting up field on this play and is able to exhibit rapid acceleration, as he bursts up field for more valuable yards after the catch. After selling "block" and making another great snag downfield, Bryce is seen on the backside blocking as a TE. Bevins is able to once again DOMINATE his opponent and gets him turned completely out of the play. A few plays later, Bevin shows us his kickoff coverage ability, as he plans on playing as a freshmen for whatever college program is lucky enough to earn this Scout Trout All-American's services! Bevin is able to motor downfield like a bat out of hell and make a beautiful "form tackle" and asserts his tenacious play in his opponents minds. When I slow his highlights down, I can see the beautiful hands this young man beholds when he is catching a screen pass at around 3:16 into his highlights. Bevin uses great footwork to get depth in his route to receive the screen and then propel forward, but the football is thrown behind him. Thus, Bevin is able to completely turn his body 180 degrees and then flip upfield, as if he never lost a step. He also uses his HANDS very well to bring the ball in, appearing to make the proper triangle and is very instinctively quick getting the ball in the correct running arm. With John Carroll Catholic (Fort Pierce,FL) struggling last season with a 3-7 record, Bevin was able to visibly show he is a D1 caliber receiving target at multiple positions on the offensive side of the football. His special teams play is fun to watch too and after a full evaluation of this young man's work ethic during the off-season, I begin to see why his combine numbers are among the nation's top, as far as his position is concerned. With 30 receptions for 400 total yards and versatility on the football field, this hard working student-athlete is going to continue to mold into one heck of a college football player! Congrats on being selected as a Scout Trout Class of 2019 All-American and keep up the outstanding work, on and off the field that earned you the #9 ranking at slot receiver in the nation!
