2022 College Recruiting - 7 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on Aug. 18, 2021
Arkansas logo TE Tyrus Washington (Leesburg, GA) commits to Arkansas  View Class

Washington (6-4, 234) is another physically gifted tight end in a deep year in Georgia for the position. I think he's a combo tight end who can catch some passes and be trusted to stay in and perform blocking duties. Washington has some impressive blocking plays of film. He will crash down and wipe out a defensive end on a run play. Washington also has some good athleticism, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him flexed out as a receiver from time to time. He should provide a lot of versatility and develop into a three-down player.

Tyrus Washington's Player Grade: B-
Arkansas logo CB Jaylen Lewis (Brownsville, TN) commits to Arkansas  View Class

Lewis (5-11, 175) has bigger length and a large defensive radius in relation to his height. He is a competitor who routinely takes on bigger wide receivers and generally holds his own through both athleticism and the willingness to get physical and challenge for the ball. Lewis has quickness and is better than average when it comes to reaction time. His overall speed is average, and I can't get a good grasp on his long speed. I like Lewis as a slot cornerback because of his feet and quickness, so he should be able to defend those short routes. Lewis' ability to challenge for the ball also makes him a good defender in the red zone.

Jaylen Lewis' Player Grade: B-
Arkansas logo DL Nico Davillier (Maumelie, AR) commits to Arkansas  View Class

Davillier (6-3, 272) is an athletic, versatile defensive lineman who can offer a lot of options. He played some goal-line wildcat quarterback in his earlier high school days, which showed off some of his athleticism. I think Daviller's natural position in college will be as a three-technique, but he could move around and generate mismatches. Daviller has some good strength, and he plays with effort and intensity. He is pretty raw from a technique standpoint, but that's an area he can improve in time. Daviller could also be better with his hands and play with a little more leverage.

Nico Davillier's Player Grade: B-
Arkansas logo OT E'Marion Harris (Little Rock, AR) commits to Arkansas  View Class

Harris is listed at 6-foot-7, 370 pounds, making him one of the largest, if not the largest, FBS prospect in the class. One thing I like from Harris is that he's a bit of a bully, and sometimes I worry about the big guys being a little too nice, which is not the case here. As a run blocker, Harris is a dominating presence. His size just tends to overwhelm defenders. As a pass blocker, it's hard to say. He has a great wingspan and should be able to hold off outside rush, but I couldn't get a great idea of his footwork, agility and lateral movement. Harris has the size you can't teach and the toughness that offensive line coaches like to see.

E'Marion Harris' Player Grade: B-
Arkansas logo WR Quincey McAdoo (Clarendon, AR) commits to Arkansas  View Class

McAdoo (6-3, 175) was committed to Florida State for about three months, and he de-committed from the Seminoles before deciding to commit to the home-state school. From an earlier evaluation: McAdoo isn't a top-end receiver in the Class of 2022, but he could be near the back of the top 25 for the position. McAdoo has good size and raw athletic skills. He does a good job to adjust to balls in the air. McAdoo doesn't show much beyond being a high-ball tracker right now, but I think he can develop his route running and other technical aspects once he gets into a college program.

Quincey McAdoo's Player Grade: B-
Arkansas logo S Myles Rowser (Belleville, MI) commits to Arkansas  View Class

Arkansas is building a strong secondary, especially at safety, where the team has landed red-chip prospects in consecutive classes. Rowser (6-1, 185) will add to that talent haul. It's the second year in a row that an SEC school has pried a top prospect from the state of Michigan to the conference, and Arkansas had to hold off Michigan and Kentucky in the end.

Rowser is a physical presence at safety. He can play in the box and come in to help with the run defense. What apparently won over Arkansas coaches, however, was his ability to play the deep safety and patrol the open space as well as take on receivers in single coverage when they come into his area. It's possible Rowser could be safety/corner hybrid and someone who will be tasked with covering bigger receivers on the outside.

Myles Rowser's Player Grade: B+
Arkansas logo OT Andrew Chamblee (Maumelle, AR) commits to Arkansas  View Class

Chamblee (6-6. 288) looks like he could be a potential centerpiece for the Razorbacks' offensive line class of 2022. He looks good coming off the bus, possessing the ideal height, length and frame for a future left tackle. Chamblee has a big wingspan, around 84 inches, and he uses his arms and legs well to handle rushers coming off the edge. He is a strong run blocker who can finish his work and then move to the next level to search for more action. Chamblee already shows a good physical size, but I'd like to see more nastiness when it comes to finishes blocks. He could also be stronger at the initial point of contact. Chamblee is a legitimate top-25 tackle prospect in this class.

Andrew Chamblee's Player Grade: B+
