Kynon Codrington watched Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco take on Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas while Woody Wommack traveled to south Georgia to watch Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County host Savannah (Ga.) Beach. The two Southeast Analysts share their opinions on the top prospects in their respective games.
DE Al-Quadin Muhammad, Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep. Grade: A
The four-star defensive end was the best player on the field and lived up to his lofty ranking. Muhammad is a fluid and natural pass rusher. He registered a pair of sacks and was constantly in the backfield for much of the night. The 6-foot-4 rush end plays with a lot of passion and is the vocal leader on a young team. Look for him to add weight without losing much speed and lateral quickness when he transitions to college.
RB Fred Coppet, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas. Grade: A
Coppet rushed for 112 yards in a losing effort. The three-star back has eclipsed the 100-yard mark in every game this season. He is dependable back with a good burst and vision. He catches the ball well out of the backfield and helps in the screen game. On offense, he was the lone bright spot for the Raiders.
K Cameron Beals, Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep. Grade: A
Very rarely does a kicker make the list but, Beals connected on two field goals and both PATs. His second field goal made it a two-possession game with less than three minutes left. His steady leg was a great asset in the defensive struggle. The Ironmen special teams were the difference in the contest.
DE Travis Johnson, Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County. Grade: A
Johnson transferred to to Camden County during the summer and is quickly making a name for himself. He had three tackles in the game, two of them for loss, and flashed great quickness to match his 6-foot-3, 231-pound frame.
ATH J.J. Green, Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County. Grade: B+
The only thing keeping Green from a 'A' was a dropped touchdown pass in the first quarter. He looked explosive as a runner and didn't shy away from contact on either side of the ball. Despite being banged up in previous games, Green showed no ill-effects on Friday and looks like he will transition nicely to either cornerback or running back in college.
S Chris Washington, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas. Grade: B
Washington collected an interception, his third of the season. The 5-foot-11 safety is a sleeper prospect who should see his stock rise with a strong start to the season against formidable opponents Miami (Fla.) Columbus, Weston (Fla.) Cypress Bay, and now Don Bosco. Washington is always in good position and around the ball. He needs to do a better job of attacking the ball in the air. He should land an offer or two if he keeps playing at a high level.
S James Crawford, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas. Grade: B
The strong safety nabbed an interception in the loss. Crawford is a heady player who understands coverages and route concepts. He is having a strong year for the Raiders. A solid tackler and a capable defender in the open field, he is the nephew of Green Bay Packers safety Charles Woodson.
DL Joey Bosa, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas. Grade: B -
Bosa returned to action after missing last Friday's game with a minor injury. The four-star defensive stalwart played a good game but wasn't his typical self against Bosco. He did a nice job holding lineman at the point of attack and allowing linebackers to shoot gaps. He looked to be laboring just a touch, but that could be due getting back in game shape. The Ohio State commit is looking forward to his team's upcoming bye week.
QB Brice Ramsey, Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County. Grade: C+
Ramsey wasn't given much of an opportunity to throw in the game, completing 1 of 4 passes for 48 yards and a touchdown. He also had a touchdown on the ground but fumbled in the early going when the game was still in doubt. Ramsey is known for taking a while to get into the flow of the game, and because his team won in easy fashion, he didn't get the chance.
LB Jarrad Davis, Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County. Grade: C
Davis didn't have a bad game, but he didn't stand out either. Against an inferior offense, he played an average game, earning him an average grade. The Auburn commit is the leader of the Camden defense, this just wasn't his best game.
QB John O'Korn, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas. Grade: C-
The Raiders offense only scored one touchdown, and O'Korn had two turnovers. He did account for his team's only touchdown on a "jump" pass to tight end Jonathan Boozer. The Houston pledge got nicked up in the first quarter and wasn't as effective with his dual-threat ability as he hoped. He finished the night with 165 yards passing.
OL J.P. Vonashek, Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County. Grade: INC
Vonashek didn't play in the game as he is still recovering from an offseason shoulder issue. The three-star South Carolina commit said after the game that he expects to resume football activities soon and that the Gamecocks are sticking with him despite the injury.
