Welcome to part three of our series of stories highlighting some top talent in the Class of 2021 – who do not have many – if any offers – yet. These are all guys we feel will – especially with big senior seasons – have offers down the road. Right now, they are just under the radar.
Today we start looking at the skill position players. We specifically focus on the guys who catch the ball – wide receivers and tight ends.
How can a starter on a state runner up and one of the most explosive offenses – regardless of class – be under the radar? In the case of Finney, it is because he plays at least four positions. In addition to tight end, the 6’3″ 238-pound junior played defensive line, guard, and center. From what I can tell, Finney is mostly being recruited as a tight end. Obviously, with his pedigree on the offensive line, blocking is the tight end’s strength. He has long arms that he uses well in pass protection and has good footwork. He has plenty of DIII and NAIA opportunities, but if he settles into a position – DII and maybe DI schools will notice.
The first thing I noticed when watching Ask were his great hands. He is long enough to make plays in traffic, and his long strides create separation from defensive backs. The Tigers’ junior is tough in the open field with his ability to make people miss, and his ability to break arm tackles. Ask currently has one offer from the University of Mary.
The 5’10″ 162-pound junior is a long strider with good separation speed. Eyafe can adjust to the deep ball and is an excellent bad ball receiver. He gets into the air for overthrown balls and can get low, catching balls down at his ankles. As a bonus, he is a kick returner with the speed to break a long return.
Trent Langowski WR Winona
Langowski is a two-way player who could end up playing defensive back in college. At 6’2″ 180-pounds, he has great size at wide receiver. He has quick feet, allowing him to make sharp cuts coming out of his breaks. With his time a defensive back, he has a good feel for what defenders are trying to do to him off the line of scrimmage. On the defensive side of the ball, he breaks on the ball quickly and uses his length to get position on receivers.
Like Langowski, Fitzpatrick Is a two-way player who could play defensive back in college. As a receiver, Fitzpatrick moves well in the open field. He can break arm tackles and has good length for both receiver and defensive back. As a defender, he can come up strong in run support and will line up in the box. He has good balance and can work on the outside and the middle of the field on offense. As a defensive back, Fitzpatrick plays both on the outside and as more of a safety.
