Football recruitment can be extremely confusing during the modern day era for most up and coming football recruits. When you throw in the fact that we are still in the midst of a pandemic and the NCAA extended the dead period until Jan 1st, 2021, you begin to see a wild spring recruiting season unfolding in the world of College Football Today. Sitting at the NFL Senior Bowl with the North Carolina Staff in 2017, they were in need of a Quarterback as Mitchell Trubisky had declared early for the 2017 NFL Draft. The Tar Heels staff and I agreed 100% that he was not ready to make the leap to the NFL, as that projection has came to be 100% accurate with Nick Foles now leading the Chicago Bears. Many do not understand the intricacies of football recruiting, as it honestly never ends until late in the spring every recruiting class for various reasons. Players will declare early for the NFL Draft and this will open up a roster spot at whatever school they declared from. This is the main reason I began frequenting the NFL Senior Bowl after working out in Mobile, Alabama as a player for NFL teams towards the end of my playing career. I began to take an NFL scouts perspective to the game, after evaluating talent side by side with all 32 NFL teams and this has helped identify thousands of top level football recruits. We will get into the perception that can sold to even the elite NFL teams of what a player could be down the road later, but this is about football recruitment and how the game has changed due to Covid-19. There will be many top football recruits who have committed become ineligible and will be sent into the junior college circuit or prep school's, which also opens up a roster spot. This is just how things unfold at the Division One FBS level and does not pertain to the extremely talented FCS, D2 and NAIA scholarship levels of football. With many targets not beginning play until the spring, we will see a massive wave of signings late in the game this year and you should not be distracted by the media driven industry of college football recruitment. Instead, you should prepare diligently in all aspects of football and life, as the wild west of football recruiting will come to the forefront after the Presidential election takes place. Knowing all of this is unfolding on minds that don't understand the recruitment process, I believe it all comes down to a verse I read in Proverbs this morning, which I posted to College Football Today Twitter this morning.
TOP FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Many Scout Trout top football recruits that have began play are excelling at an extremely high level amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and not letting outside distractions dictate their play on the field. After re-evaluating College Football Today top 2021 QB recruits, I was once again extremely impressed with Aidan Thompson and his ability to lead an offense. His production in his first two games has been noteworthy and he has many FBS and FCS teams that have inquired about his services. In speaking with Mr.Thompson. many D1 teams wanted to bring him in for visits, but were unable to due to the extended dead period. Thompson has thrown for nearly 500 yards in his 1st two games and 3 touchdowns, along with 1 rushing TD. He made many improvements in his overall athletics, as far as his footwork is concerned and will be an elite college football quarterback. He is getting the football out quickly and still throws one of the best touch passes I have witnessed on tape.
TOP 2021 QB RECRUITS
If you Google search top 2021 QB recruits, you will find the Scout Trout Elite QB recruits directly under 247 Sports. While this could change, it currently is one of the most visited pages in my scouting database and for very good reason. Top 2021 Dual-Threat QB Ryan Wilkerson is a human highlight reel and has also thoroughly impressed me early in the season down in Texas High School football. Ryan is one of the most nimble and athletic downhill runners I have witnessed on tape, who is one of the best passing dual-threat QB's in the Class of 2021. He is extremely exciting to watch on tape and will also be an elite quarterback in the world of College Football Today. In the beginning of highlight's below, he uses quick spin move on the linebacker and is off to the races for a 60 yard touchdown run. Check out his new highlight below and find both top quarterback recruits in the Scout Trout Elite QB recruit database by clicking HERE!
TOP 2021 LINEMEN RECRUITS
After evaluating top 2021 linemen recruits, I believe Austin Ramey is arguably the best available linemen that can dominate in the trenches on both sides of the football. He has already proved that he can manhandle highly touted 3 Star football recruits in the State of Ohio and is back wreaking havoc on both sides of the football. Ramey can play at high level as a nose guard or pulling guard and is a brutalizing force upon engagement. In the footage below, he can be seen pummeling defenders when pulling and is able to drive his opponent off the line of scrimmage with ease. He can fill multiple roles at the next level and is one of the more versatile interior linemen in the nation. Check him out below and in the Scout Trout Elite 2021 O-Line database by clicking HERE!
Football recruiting has become much like agents over glorifying players abilities for the NFL Draft, so they can get paid their portion of the players contract, along with marketing and endorsement money. Which is part of the reason I brought on the Northeast Director of Recruiting and close friend Anthony Pochesi, who is currently planning an exposure camp that will be hosted in Connecticut. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the northeast states have opted out of playing high school football in the fall and we both feel that bringing a College Football Today camp to this region will benefit the recruits in the area tremendously. You can follow the new Northeast Director of Recruiting at College Football Today on Twitter by clicking HERE and he will be handling scouting globally for Scout Trout Elite LLC. Recruits who have been working diligently during these trying times like Finn Sposato, Tyler Tortora, The Smith Brothers and Champ Long, deserve the opportunity to showcase their abilities to the entire world, as our websites reach every continent on the globe. We will have more information coming soon on our northeast showcase coming soon at College Football Today.
