College Dark Phoenix

Here we go with another edition of the College Dark Phoenix. This week we are going to look at a freshmen RB that is the state of Ohio's all-time leading rusher, an all-purpose back that ranks high on the leader board, and a QB that is only beginning to take the college world by storm.

Sutton was a superstar in high school at Archbishop Hoban High School and left as the state of Ohio's all-time leading rusher. During his senior season he ran for 3,241 yards and 38 touchdowns. He had over 100 yards rushing in 44 or 49 high school games, and once in a game versus Youngstown he ran for 505 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Sutton has incredible vision, balance, and body control. Along with those attributes he also has some great moves that he can unleash in the open field, or in the backfield. Despite his size, Sutton is rarely taken down by the first tackler. Tyrell is a very determined runner that has game-breaking speed and ability. As a freshman he still has some growing to do and could be around 215 lbs by his junior season, and it's unlikely he'd lose much speed.

Tyrell Sutton is #2 in the nation in rushing yards/game with 154.4 He has burst onto the scene in 2005 and looks to be another great Wildcat back. But unlike Jason Wright, Damien Anderson, or Darnell Autry, Sutton looks to translate his skill set to the next level.


Maurice Drew, UCLA Bruins
5'8" 205 lbs. - Junior - 11th ranked high school RB when entering college

Maurice was one of the nations best all-purpose RBs at De La Salle High School. Along with starring for the football team, Drew was also a valued member of the track team. He averaged 11.9 yards per carry and scored 26 touchdowns in his final 12 games. De La Salle once battled Long Beach Poly in the first ever matchup of the nation's #1 and #2 ranked high school teams. In that game he rushed for all of De La Salle's 4 touchdowns. During his career Drew helped extend a winning streak for his high school team that was at 138 games.

The Bruins have a great back in Drew. He is a quick, tough, & compact back with great acceleration. He has great field awareness and vision, which allow him to be a dangerous punt returner as well. He patterns his style after the legendary Barry Sanders. And while there will never be another Barry, there is a Maurice Drew that can make Barry-like plays.

Drew had a great day scoring 5 TDs in a big win over California. In addition to his 3 rushing touchdowns and his 1 receiving touchdown, Drew also returned a punt 81 yards for a score. He is an incredibly dangerous player every time he touches the ball. Maurice is a junior and could make a play for the NFL in 2006. Scouts are in love with his talent and ability; you could see Drew's stock skyrocket after the combine.


Brian Brohm, Louisville Cardinals

At Trinity High School Brohm threw for over 10,000 yards and 119 touchdowns. He finished 2nd in the state of Kentucky in career passing yards and career touchdowns. Brohm set a state record for career completion percentage. He led the Shamrocks to 3 state titles and was voted MVP of the state finals in all of those games.

Brian Brohm is the prototypical size for a NFL QB. He is a big and strong QB that can stand in the pocket and deliver the ball with great accuracy. He has a strong arm and makes good decisions with the football. His mechanics are textbook and his delivery point when he releases the ball is nice and high. Brian is not known for his scrambling ability, but he can move around behind the line of scrimmage and has a good feel for the rush.

So far in 2005 Brohm has thrown for over 1,500 yards with 10 TDs and only 2 interceptions. He teamed with Michael Bush this past Saturday to destroy the Tar Heels 69-14. In 2004 he was named Conference USA's freshmen of the year. Brohm has a great start to what looks to be a promising career. It will be interesting to see how he develops over the next year or so.


Well, that'll do it for another edition of The Dark Phoenix. Be sure to check out The Ones 2 Watch, where we break down the top 15 draft eligible players in the nation. These players could all be making a big impact on Sundays very soon.
