Michigan Football Recruiting: GBMWolverine Member Saume’s Scouting Report — Maurice Hurst Jr.
Here is a small sample from Saume’s scouting report from the message board. To read the entire thing along with what other said please visit the message board.
Also make sure to check out GBMWolverine’s Staff Member SKWDCOP’s week six stats from all the Michigan Football Commits. He is the best around for finding articles, stats, highlights on all of our Michigan Football commits. He is so good that others steal his information, including the pay sites.
Full disclosure: I am a novice. Here are my impressions:
MHJ is listed at 6-2, 305. He wears #11 for those who are keeping track. I would guess that his listed size is a tad over-stated. But I would buy 6-1, 290. No matter, he can easily play at or over 300 pounds. He definitely is in solid shape. He isn’t fat, but he is wide and stocky and has a nice frame.
MHJ does play some on offense, but I was only able to see him in on maybe half a dozen plays. He plays fullback or H-back when they go big. What I took from his experience on offense is that he doesn’t shy away from contact – he is physical.
Because I was watching him closely, I was able to make some positive observations that should serve his game well moving forward: He isn’t huge but he is a big kid and he moves very well for a player his size. The first time I noticed him he exploded out of his stance and was in the backfield immediately. He did this quite often, getting great penetration on a fairly consistent basis. He has a nice swim technique and he seems to get off blocks well.
Maurice Hurst Jr. had an impact of a number of incomplete passes. Among the guys in the trenches, he seemed to be the quickest and most dominant. Andover was cut blocking a bit and he didn’t seem to like it as he limped off a couple times.
The player I would compare him to would be Willie Henry. I think 3-stars is appropriate, he does have some potential and I like his athleticism for a big fella. Having said that, he didn’t wow me. Give him a couple/few years in the S&C program and some position coaching and he could contribute. He showed me he can play with a motor.
