Scouting Report on T.J. Stripling

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Camp settingby Barry Every - 08/14/2009
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Has broad shoulders and thin waist with a frame that can put on 40 more pounds. His arms are very long, and he will remind some people of Cincinnati Bengal Michael Johnson out of high school.
Needs Improvement: Stripling needs to work on technique, because he relies too much on speed rushing. He needs to get thicker and stronger all over because he is a bit thin.
Most Impressive: He is ultra-competitive, and has one of the fastest get-offs to go along with superior overall athleticism and balance. His frame is the blueprint for a weakside defensive end.
Conclusion: Will most likely be used on coverage teams and as a pass rusher on third downs as a true freshman. The earlier he is able to put on weight, the sooner he will be an every-down starter. Stripling has the makings of a multiple all-league performer.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
