Wilmington (Del.) Salesianum High vs Middletown (Del.) High

Class of Wilmington receiver Chris Godwin was the star attraction and he didn't disappoint. He is 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, runs well and has good hands. He also is a good route runner and difficult to tackle. Goodwin returned a punt for 75 yards, breaking several tackles in the process, and also had a pair of touchdown catches. He is physical and releases well off the line of scrimmage.

Wilmington 2014 quarterback Darius Wade also was impressive and showed why he already has offers from Delaware and Massachusetts. His accuracy was a bit spotty, but that will come. The lefty showed very good arm strength in throwing 10-yard outs and also fired a 65-yard pass down the field on a scramble. He is elusive and moves well in the pocket and picks up yards with his feet. However, he does not look to run first, and often showed patience in waiting for receivers to get open rather than tuck the ball and run.

Class of 2014 Salesianum linebacker Troy Reeder, who recently picked up a Penn State offer, did not play because of a foot injury.

Richmond (Va.) Godwin vs. Richmond (Va.) Hermitage

This rivalry game was close early, but once Hermitage started rolling in the second quarter, they never looked back. The Panthers moved to 8-0 with 46-10 win over Godwin. Five-star running back Derrick Green did not disappoint, rushing for 215 yards and two touchdowns. Green was a man among boys Friday night. The 6-foot, 220-pound Green is a powerful running back that gets stronger as the game goes on. While Green does a nice job running behind his pads and gets a lot yards after contact, he made several impressive cuts on Friday night. His agility and quickness are extremely impressive for a back his size. There is no doubt that the five-star running back is one of the top players in the country.

Brian Brown was very impressive all night long. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior plays cornerback and wide receiver for the Panthers. Brown will likely play on the defensive side of the ball at the next level. He is very athletic and runs well. Brown showed good technique and was very physical. His best football is ahead of him. Brown has offers from East Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Richmond.

Marius Young is the leader of Hermitage's strong offensive line. The 6-foot-2, 270-pound junior center is an athletic big man with a good motor. He fires off the ball and does a nice job finishing his blocks. Young had several crushing blocks in the run game and was also very good is pass pro. His recruitment will likely pick up after the season.

Sulaiman Kamara is a prospect that you will hear a lot about over the next four years. The 6-foot-2, 290-pound freshman defensive tackle was dominant in the trenches. Kamara is explosive off the ball and does nice job using his hands. He is extremely strong at the point of attack and plays until the whistle blows. It is scary to think Kamara is only a freshman. If he continues to develop, the sky is the limit for the defensive lineman.

Although his team was clearly overmatched, Godwin's Eric Tetlow played well. Tetlow has played every position on the offensive line this season. On Friday night, he played center and was impressive. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound offensive lineman is strong and technically sound. He is an above average athlete with and definitely one of the top offensive linemen in Virginia. Tetlow has double-digit scholarships offers and some school is a going to get a very good football player.

Red Bank Catholic (Red Bank, N.J.) vs. Middletown South (N.J.)

Red Bank Catholic has two clear-cut Division I prospects in 2013 defensive tackle Josh Klecko and 2014 lineman Quenton Nelson. Klecko, the son of New York Jets great Joe Klecko, displays the same tremendous technique as his father. His swift, powerful handwork makes up for a lack of size at the nose – 6-foot-2, 260 pounds. Klecko is firmly committed to Rutgers, where his technique will have to make up for his lack of size, similarly to freshman Darius Hamilton this year.

Nelson holds double-digit offers and it is clear why when seeing him live. Nelson has top-notch mobility as a left tackle and 3-technique. His initial burst off the line of scrimmage generated large holes for his tailback. Most importantly, Nelson plays with a passion for hitting. He does not shy away from contact and can man-handle most linebackers and defensive ends at his current level of competition. The 6-foot-5 lineman visited Penn State Saturday and has a strong connection to both Rutgers and Michigan State.
