TPI Recruiting Report: Ald. Eisenhower (DEF)

Ald. Eisenhower LB Darius Willis leads the 'D'

After watching several weeks of football in Greater Houston, there are several athletes who have posted some noteworthy performances. Even more so, there are teams out there that are loaded with Division I talent. And Aldine Eisenhower is one of those teams. TPI will give you the lowdown on a top team with top talent. This is Part II (defense) of a two-part series.

DL Roderick Davis (6-3, 300)
Davis, a Texas A&M commit, has been wreaking havoc up front all season for the talented Eagles' defensive squad. He takes on the double team well and clears the way for his linebackers to make plays. I see Davis being a major addition to the Aggie lineup.

DL Jay Guy (6-1, 315)
Guy is a young player (Class of 2010) who will make a name for himself quick. He and Davis work well up front and apply pressure to opposing quarterbacks. And for his size, Guy is quick. He fires off of the ball with a purpose and makes plays. Look for this athlete in the coming years because I see him being a big-time prospect.

LB Darius Willis (6-2, 210)
Willis' leadership on the field is clearly what separates him for the rest. He plays hard and hits hard and makes his presence known every week. He commands the Eagle defensive squad and is in on nearly every play whether it is run or pass. Willis has committed to Buffalo because of quarterback opportunities. But if he ever decided to play outside linebacker, I'm sure there are plenty of programs that will welcome him with open arms.

DB Craig Loston (6-2, 195)
It seems as though Loston has steadily gotten better every week. On the run, he comes up hard meeting the runner at the line of scrimmage. When the ball is in the air, the receiver will pay if Loston is anywhere near the ball (likely he is). The bottom line is, Loston is just a raw and talented athlete who can play any skilled position if needed. Right now he has two interceptions on the season, both of which were game winners to seal a victory.
