Scouting Report on Bishop Sankey

by Barry Every - 06/03/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityAs Good As It Gets
  • ElusivenessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: There is no bad body weight on his frame. He should play at around 195 pounds. He is built like Tennessee running back David Oku.
Needs Improvement: Could improve his overall speed and balance just a bit. He will need to add some size and strength to become an every-down back and make yards after contact.
Most Impressive: Sankey has excellent hands and superior change-of-direction skills. He can make anyone miss in the open field and is definitely a threat in the passing game. He could make an excellent punt returner. He is very strong for his size.
Conclusion: Could be an impact freshman, especially if he stays in the Pacific Northwest. He should play special teams as a freshman while he is worked into the lineup. He could end up being an all-conference performer.
