3 star safety committed to state. From ohio I think. Never heard of him.
This is the guy Michigan would like to get at Safety, they are not going to reach at that position having Thomas and Wilson from last year in the fold.
"Between the promise and the payoff is the process -- and the process is the point."
http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...353/1132/rss18Powell (6 foot 1, 185 pounds) is ranked the No. 29 player in Ohio by Rivals.com and is the cousin of former Michigan State cornerback and current Indianapolis Colts defensive back Chris L. Rucker. SpartanMag.com said Powell was at Michigan State's junior day event Saturday and made his commitment after attending the Michigan State-Nebraska basketball game.
Ohio football writer Duane Long has Powell as the #1 safety in the state:
Before Friday I was arguing that Warren Harding's Jalyn Powell is closer to (Dymonte) Thomas than the experts might think. After seeing them both in person, I feel that it is Thomas that is just behind Powell. Powell is a ball hawk and actually the better hitter. I'd like to word this in a specific way. Dymonte Thomas has the higher ceiling, which in large part is what recruiting and the scouting of recruits is all about. But, not only do I feel that Jalyn Powell is the better safety today, I believe he is more likely to reach his ceiling. Powell is a natural gamer and I don't think that that is something that is easy to learn. Make no mistake, I would much rather see him (Thomas) in Scarlet than in Blue, but now I have him as number 2 instead of 1 for Ohio's safety class.
Wonder what hondo and comp think
He also had Ifeadi Odenigbo ahead of Adolphus Washington for 2012...FWIW.
He also had Kalis as the #5 player in Ohio.
