Bishop Manogue is hungry after their state title game loss last season. I tuned in last week and was impressed with the number of prospects on the Miners’ squad. Below, I break down the next level traits I saw from specific players last week.
is a solid two-way starter for Bishop Manogue. Be on the lookout for Jadyn’s defensive recruitment to pick up before the season is over. Jadyn displayed good instincts, closing speed, and tackling ability filling in the run game as Bishop Manogue’s free safety. Good balance and strength allowed Jadyn to fight through crowded run boxes all night on offense. Jadyn’s good strength tools and instinctiveness displayed in the run game will allow him to keep rising through the ranks as a versatile safety prospect this fall.
Pele Masina is set to be one of the highest rising defensive backs in northern Nevada. Pele has already visited the University of Nevada this fall, and I would expect his regional recruitment to continue to rise before the year is over. Pele showed quick feet, good acceleration, and a smooth change of direction guarding Spanish Springs receivers in press man coverage. Flashes of next level power was displayed upon contact with ball carriers. Good length, strength, and recovery speed showed completing two different pass breakups last Friday night.
is a rising OL prospect out of Reno. Expect Jackson’s consistent play to lead to schools in the region reaching out before his junior year ends. Jackson’s good flexibility and strong latch was consistently on display in pass protection for Bishop Manogue. Good effort and power showed lead blocking at the point of attack, while Jackson’s strength allowed him to sustain drive blocks for the Miners’ rushing attack all night. Coaches like Jackson’s size and quickness that allows him to reach block defensive linemen in the run game.
is a talented, versatile defender for the Miners. Marrio has been receiving interest from Southern Utah and the University of Nevada on social media this fall, and I would expect more schools in the region to start reaching out well before his season is finished. Marrio’s rare combination of size, strength, and closing speed was on full display bringing down Spanish Springs ball carriers. Good power showed stunning offensive linemen as a blitzer, highlighting Marrio’s pass rush potential. Coaches like Marrio’s length and shed technique that shows in run defense.
may be the most talented playmaker in northern Nevada. Ben is committed to the University of Nevada and also holds an offer from Army. Ben showed his next level speed gaining vertical separation on defenders in Spanish Springs’ zone coverage. Ben’s great combination of length, athleticism, and strong hands showed elevating over a defender in the end zone for one of his two touchdowns on the night. Expect the hometown commit to receive most interest around the region up until it comes time to graduate.
