Today we add to our list of football prospects that are top candidates to move on to college but who have yet to receive that first offer. While being a top player is no guarantee of receiving an opportunity to move on many of these athletes will be the guys to get the next collegiate scholarship offers.
This is our "Best of The Rest" watch list:
Top Defensive Linemen: Oregon
Mike is amazing. His strength is beyond incredible. He has excelletn skill and has been a stalwart All State D-Line Prospect. Several schools are close to offering him if they could just get over his stature. Any school making him an opportunity is going to hit pay dirt. He simply defeats guys and knows how to win.
Fergus is a Big Motor Guy who can be a serious force off the edge. He is an essential part of the Rams success and he can move on the ball very well. Last week in the Holy War he posted some big time moves on a great Offensive Line and was one of the guys who seemed to always be there to shut the play down.
He will certainly move on to the collegiate ranks the question is where?
Justin Outslay: Salem Academy 6'5"-280 Pounds-
Justin Outslay- Justin keeps rising and is a very good kid. He is a 4.0 student and terrific athlete either side of the ball. You sure can not appreciate how good he is without spending some time watching his film and we have seen him up close and personal against the best of the best in pads and he simply beats people.
Chet Spears– Sheldon High School- 6'2"-310 Pounds
Chet Spears is an All State Wrestler and football player in Oregon in 2012. You want to know why Sheldon is so tough? This guys controls the middle. If you were looking to stuff the run this guy is your man.
His pad level, leverage and strength are amazing for a hIgh school kid. Again here is another guy who is going to be a collegiate player. The question is who will go after him first?
Jake Leary– 6'2"-285 Pounds- Milwaukie HS-
We like Jake as he is very mobile and could play a number of positions along he line of scrimmage. He is fun to watch and has a really tough demeanor and mentality.
A good student and great person this guy has Blue Chip written on the label of his Jersey.
Bryson Sullivan – Aloha High School
We love Bryson on either side of the ball. Many have him as a premier TE or OL but in the end we see him being one of the most agressive and mobile Defensive Linemen we have seen. The injury bug has bitten him and that is no joke.
But neither is the way this guy has bounced back. Superb hands and feet for a big man and kid who helps his team in every way he can.
Watch for him to rise at Aloha and help them make another Championship run.
Samson Ebukam– 6'4"-225 Pounds- David Douglas
Coach Dan Wood uses him as a RB and he rips off huge yards.
Perhaps the quickest kid off the ball that we have seen in the Pacific Northwest. No film of this year yet bu any program at any level looking to man up with a kid that does not believe he can be defeated wants Samson.
Usaia Aisea– 6'2"-260 Pounds Lincoln HS
We loved him last season and have him on our prospect watch list. He has excellent balance and while not proto-typical size for the hIghest levels we believe he will go on to college where he will stand out and be a contributor.

Jonathan Kenion – 6'2"-255 Pounds- Clackamas High School
Kenion is a two way warrior on the line of scrimmage and should be a young man who can move on after high school. We appreciate his work ethic and the balance of skill he brings onto the field every week.
Again a guy that can be on either side of the ball but is well suited for defense.
Catch his film right here.
Malcom Lewis- Westview- 6'0" 280 Pounds
Here is another guy who can move on to college. A great Defensive player with a solid skill set Lewis has had a chance to hone his skills as a starter these past two season.
He is very powerful and makes a nice move off the ball. His pad level is good and he has been well coached. He is one Wildcat that gets a workout every down in the Metro League where things are overall just brutal.
We will be adding to this list as the season moves along and you may submit anyone we have missed thus far by dropping us a quick email at email@example.com or calling 503-799-8383.
