Scouting Report on Prince Shembo

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 10/12/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Has a very muscular build and powerful frame. He has broad shoulders and average-length arms for his size. His legs are thick and powerful. He is another "tweener" as a defensive end/linebacker hybrid. Looks a bit like Georgia defensive end Justin Houston.
Needs improvement: As a linebacker, he needs to work on moving in space and tackling in the open field. He must improve hip flexibility in order to flip and run with backs running routes.
Most impressive: He is very strong and explosive of the ball. He is an excellent pass rusher, so he should be tremendous when blitzes are called. This kid will pursue ball carriers all over the field with a motor that never stops.
Conclusion: He should become an instant impact as either a linebacker or defensive end. This kid will do what it takes in the gym and the film room to be the best. Shembo also possesses the ability for long-term success on the football field.
