Scouting Report on Mike Hull

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 10/12/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Will physically remind fans of former Boston College linebacker Brian Toal. He is a slightly undersized linebacker but with a lot of lean muscle mass and strength. He is "tweener" between a safety and outside linebacker in size.
Needs improvement: He must improve lateral quickness, because he is a bit stiff and changing directions could be a liability as a defender. Hull must be more of a force at the point of attack because he can get swallowed up.
Most impressive: He has great instincts and is excellent in coverage. He also loves contact, and you can't teach that kind of aggressiveness.
Conclusion: Will most likely not be an instant impact guy. He needs a couple years to add needed muscle mass, but he should end up a success because he is a hard worker and a great tackler.

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
