COLLEGE FOOTBALL RECRUITING
College football recruiting is about to kick into high gear with the contact period approaching on December 1st and we are extremely excited about the roster that is forming for our 2020 High School All-American Bowl in Memphis,Tennessee. We just added Top 2020 Dual-Threat QB recruit Cahsid Raymond to our roster out of Ben Franklin High School in Philadelphia and our specialist selection process has begun at The National Kicker Rankings, with their first camp of 65 specialist being completed in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. We have been extending more invites and working through over 2,000 college football scouting profiles that have been coming in by the hour at Scout Trout Elite. We would like to thank our new partners and everyone who is helping make this a special event for the rising recruits at College Football Today.
2020 ALL-AMERICAN QB
2020 All-American QB Cahsid Raymond will be suiting up for our 2020 High School Football All-American Bowl in Memphis,Tennessee and is one of the most athletically gifted QB's in the 2020 recruiting class. Raymond finished the season with over 900 yards on the ground and 9 touchdowns, while also throwing for over 1100 yards, along with 11 touchdowns. I have also got to witness this extremely gifted athlete go up over defenders as a receiver, as he possesses a brilliant upside in the game of American Football. In the opening play of his highlight's below, you will see one of the most gifted dual-threat QB's in the class of 2020 take the football around 80 yards for a touchdown and uses outstanding agility, speed and vision in the process. Raymond does an outstanding job at avoiding pressure in the pocket and does not hesitate to make a defense pay in the process with his 4.5 speed. Do not let Raymond's dazzling running abilities fool you though, as he possesses an innate ability to push the ball downfield with great arm strength, precision and also exhibits a quick release in the process. I have already received several inquiries from HBCU programs and many others on Raymond, as we expect him to flourish at the next level of College Football Today. Click HERE to read my initial report on Cahsid Raymond at Scout Trout Elite!
2020 ALL-AMERICAN LB
2020 All-American LB Connor Mayfield will be making the trip to Memphis,Tennessee and I am extremely excited to watch him compete, as I predict he will be a captain of a defense in the world of College Football Today. Mayfield possesses outstanding leadership qualities and is one of the best well-rounded linebackers in the talent rich State of Georgia. Connor possesses a 3.9 GPA and a 1220 SAT, as he lacks nothing in his body of work as a Top 2020 LB recruit at College Football Today. When you watch Connor's Senior season highlight's below, you will find an instinctual linebacker who is able to read plays decisively and is one of the best tacklers I have evaluated on tape. Connor is able to knife into the backfield for the sack on the first play and keenly drops into "hook/curl" zone coverage on the next play to make a brilliant interception. He moves swiftly from sideline to sideline and is able to hog tie ball carriers, while never stopping his feet to finish tackles. When I compare Mayfield to the All-Time legends of the game of football, I am reminded of Hall of Fame Linebacker Sam Mills, except Connor Mayfield stands 6'1,220LBs and is your prototypical big time linebacker in the world of College Football Today. Click HERE to read my initial report on Top 2020 LB recruit Connor Mayfield.
2020 ALL-AMERICAN WR
2020 All-American WR Tyshawn Lighty is arguably the best wide receiver in the nation when evaluating his body of work on the gridiron of Ohio. Lighty is simply magical in the way he can maneuver through a defense and is one of the best route runners in the 2020 recruiting class. Tyshawn creates separation very easily and is electric with the football in his mitts. He possesses raw athletics with 4.4 speed and cat-like reflexes that put the opposing defense in quite a quandary. Lighty will be borderline unstoppable at the next level with the talent that will be around him and with the gunslingers we have confirmed for Memphis, will be one of the top performers in our 2020 High School All-American Bowl. Read Tyshawn Lighty's initial scouting report at Scout Trout Elite by clicking HERE!
HS ALL-AMERICAN QB
HS All-American QB Zachary Robinson will be making the trip to Memphis,Tennessee for the All-American Bowl and has one of the strongest arms in the 2021 football recruiting class. I have witnessed Robinson unleash the football well over 60 yards downfield while throwing on the run and he an innate ability to avoid pressure. In working with Robinson I have come to realize he is an extremely cerebral young man, who exhibits one of the brightest upsides in the 2021 recruiting class at the Quarterback position. Even though his team did not push the ball downfield during the season, Zachary still found a way to avoid pressure and get his receivers in a position to make a play. In only 7 games played, Robinson was able to throw for over 1,200 yards and has been making tremendous strides in becoming the next elite 2021 QB at College Football Today.
2021 HS ALL-AMERICAN QB
2021 HS All-American QB Alex Stack will be making the trip to Memphis,Tennessee for our High School All-American Bowl and had a great season at Campbell High School in Georgia. Alex demonstrates the ability to push the ball downfield and can fit the ball into tight windows in the short passing game. Stack has outstanding arm strength and will operate masterfully in a spread college style offensive attack. He has experience running the triple-option, which will help him make quick and decisive decisions with the football when executing spread option plays, as well as RPO's. I am excited to meet Alex and his family in Memphis,Tennessee and look forward to his progression on and off the field in the coming years.
TOP PREP/JUCO RECRUITS
Becoming a college football player at the FBS, FCS, D2 or NAIA football level sometimes takes an extraordinary level of commitment, sacrifice and the utmost determination. You can get as much exposure as you want, but if you are not ready to become a man, well, you will simply be EXPOSED at the next level. I want to applaud our Top Prep/Juco recruits that made it through the season at their respective levels, as they have separated themselves from all of those who simply fall by the wayside. I also would like to personally congratulate 2018 Scout Trout All-American Tykeem Doss for his recent 7 D1 offers out of East Central CC, who was named All-Region NJCAA 1st team OT. It takes a certain type of individual to re-create their process after their High School glory days and redefine themselves elsewhere. I am proud of each and everyone of you at Scout Trout Elite who choose a different avenue and mastered your own unique individual path to the world of College Football Today. We are always watching, analyzing and counting on you to live up to the expectations we set years ago, not for us, but you!

TOP FB RECRUIT NEWS
In most recent Top FB recruit news, we shift our focus towards our 2020 All-American Bowl recruits at College Football Today. Our 2020 All-American OT recruit Chez Jennings Jr has updated his end of season highlight's from the Taft School in Connecticut and had a glorious season on the gridiron. Jennings Jr graded out extremely highly in our STEP ratings, as he showed an innate ability to blow defenders off of the football from the offensive guard position. After making the transition to offensive tackle at the Taft School, Chez proved he was an extremely versatile offensive linemen and provided stellar protection off of the edge. He demonstrated great technique and you will very rarely see his 6'6,320LB frame lose ground. Jennings Jr is a high academic recruit and has received interest from Big 12, Ivy League, MAC, ACC and a slew of others across the landscape of College Football Today. Chez's jounrey has been well documented at Scout Trout Elite and you can find his Top O-Linemen recruit profile by clicking HERE!
TOP FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top football recruits at Scout Trout Elite & College Football Today feature an array of talent that fits well in most college style systems at the next level. It also features recruits from the Juco/Prep level, all the way down to the 2023 recruiting class. Top Prep/Juco RB recruit at Scout Trout Elite Michael Floyd reportedly has received 23 offers at the D2/D3 & NAIA levels and has accumulated major FCS interest. Coming out of Spring Garden High School in Alabama, Floyd was one of the toughest runners I had seen on tape and you can view his footage below. After a season at Birmingham Prep, Floyd is capable of big things at the next level, as he proves to be an aggressive downhill runner and can carry a heavy workload for a college football team. Read more of our initial evaluation in a top football recruit update at Scout Trout Elite by clicking HERE! We will have on Michael Floyd coming soon at Scout Trout Elite, check out his recruiting profile by clicking HERE!
TOP 2021 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top 2021 football recruits at College Football Today will be getting a major overhaul, as we have placed some recruits out of position. Not at first, but recruits like Paul Czachorowski out of First State Military Academy in Delaware fit more of a top ATH recruit mold. Not taking away anything from Paul's play as a Quarterback, but he uses outstanding instincts and overall athletics as a defensive back to make game changing plays. Czachorowski is one of those players who can line up anywhere on the offensive side of the football and simply excels on the defense, as well as special teams. He is an outstanding tackler as a safety and at any given moment is able to create turnovers. This quick witted athlete makes one heck of a defensive back, as he is able to keenly read the opposing teams quarterback to make quick decisions on the football. Read Paulie's initial scouting report at Scout Trout Elite by clicking HERE and watch his junior season highlight's below.
TOP 2022 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Top 2022 football recruits is also about to be re-vamped, as top 2022 QB recruit BJ Higgins had arguably one of the best seasons at the helm of First Baptist Academy in Dallas,Texas. Higgins is one of the hardest working young men in the 2022 recruiting class and it surely paid off this past season. If you are in the market for a 2022 QB who exudes leadership qualities beyond his years, look no further then Scout Trout Elite gunslinger BJ Higgins. Higgins got invited to TCU and North Texas football shortly after releasing this enlightening scouting report on what BJ Higgins can bring to the next level. He is a field general who is able to lead his team downfield with darts downfield that are thrown early and on time. BJ shows an innate ability in throwing his receivers at First Baptist open to a spot and is a defensive backs nightmare with his passing precision. I expect big things out of Higgins the next two years in the talent rich State of Texas and I could see him landing double digit power five offers by the time his already illustrious high school career comes to an end. Check out BJ's sophomore season highlight's below and click HERE to view his Scout Trout Elite QB profile.
TOP 2022 FOOTBALL RECRUIT
Another Top 2022 football recruit out of the State of Texas that has been rapidly rising is Top 2022 DB recruit KJ Truehill, who has been defined as a lock-down DB by many in the industry. Truehill had an exceptional sophomore season at Bridgeland High School in Cypress,Texas and has already taken visits to top tier academic institutions like Tulane. KJ is an expert at man to man press coverage and is also a extremely sure tackler coming out of the defensive backfield. He is a very physical 2022 DB recruit and uses outstanding technique in pass coverage to be able to break up anything thrown his way. He can be seen in his footage below coming up in the run game to make technically sound tackles and you will never see a receiver get over the top of him in coverage. Truehill also plays the football very well in the air and is a top defensive back recruit at Scout Trout Elite & College Football Today in the 2022 football recruiting class.

TOP 2020 FOOTBALL RECRUITS
Some under the radar Top 2020 football recruits have emerged with the best stats, highlights and academics in the world of College Football Today. When I flipped on Neriyan Brown's highlight tape below, I believe I could be watching the best wide receiver recruit in the nation and I am extremely excited to see him play in the 2020 High School All-American Bowl in Memphis,Tennessee. Neriyan was able to haul in 72 receptions for 918 yards and 9 touchdowns on the season. Brown was notably known as a Top 2020 DB before the season started, as he is a dominant defensive back for North Spring High School. His versatility on the offensive side of the football will certainly be a game changer for a college team at the next level and is why we have Neriyan Brown ranked so highly in our 2020 Top football recruit rankings. Watch "The Last Ride" below and visit the Scout Trout Defensive Backs database to find more on Neriyan Brown.
TOP 2021 CFB RECRUITS
Top 2021 CFB recruits at College Football Today have emerged as stars in their respective regions of the United States and Top 2021 O-Line recruit Will Jones has been magnificent in the trenches. When watching Will Jones on Twitter, I cannot be more pleased with the production he has shown this year on the offensive line. His engage to pancake ratio is outstanding and he is one of the most technically sound blockers you will find at 6'6,295LBs. Even though his 2019 Hudl highlight's are locked, Will still managed nearly 150 views so far from college coaches nationally. You can find more on Top 2021 OL recruit Will Jones in the Scout Trout Elite Offensive Linemen database, as Stuarts Draft hosts Buffalo Gap on November 15th in the Virginia State playoffs.
TOP 2021 WR RECRUITS
Top 2021 WR recruits features Noah Arneson out of Orono High School in Minnesota, who has received major interest from FCS powers Dartmouth, North Dakota St, South Dakota St and the emerging MAC football team the Miami of Ohio Redhawks. His junior season stats can be found below, along with his standout game tape, which has major intrigue developing across the world of College Football Today. Orono had their starting QB go down mid-season and Noah suffered a broken thumb, but was fitted with a cast to continue his productive season on the gridiron in Minnesota. Once their starting QB returned, so did the high flying passing attack at Orono and as you can see, Noah had a very productive season in his junior campaign.
Junior Season Stats: 9 Games
27 Receptions for 436 yards – 4 TD’s
5 Rushes for 38 yards – 1 TD
21 Kick Returns for 426 yards

TOP 2021 APB RECRUIT
Top 2021 APB recruit Pierce Muthui-Edwards is simply one of the most brilliant APB recruits I have gotten the pleasure to evaluate on tape. He exhibits immense capabilities in escaping oncoming tacklers in close quarters and has some of the best agility you will witness in his highlight's below. Pierce excels in all facets in the game of American football and even can be seen whipping a dart downfield out of the wildcat formation, in which he is primarily used with his capabilities as a ball carrier. He is one of the most exciting players I have watched on tape in the slot and has outstanding speed, agility and power with the football in his hands. Muthui-Edwards is a very gifted route runner and can even be seen completing a double-pass for a touchdown from the slot receiver position. Pierce is one of the few players in the nation that can create plays out of the QB and slot position, as he also operates masterfully in the option game. With his outstanding new game tape below, he proves to be one of the hardest players to bring down in the country and will be moving up our 2021 recruit rankings at College Football Today. Find more on Pierce in the Scout Trout Elite Wide Receivers database!
TOP JUCO FB RECRUITS
