Football season is in full swing — and action on the recruiting trail is getting red-hot as we dip deeper into the fall.
After another weekend of live evaluations, here is the latest on several blue-chippers in the 2024 and 2025 and 2026 classes from On3 National Recruiting Analyst Sam Spiegelman:
4-star OT Blake Frazier – Michigan commit
Blake Frazier has seen his position change annually since beginning his time at Austin (Texas) Vandegrift as a tight end and long-snapper before eventually finding a fit at offensive tackle. After anchoring the right side of the Vipers’ line as a junior during a state championship run, Frazier made the transition to the left side in the offseason.
After a third live evaluation of the Michigan-committed OT, it’s safe to say that Frazier is playing his best football as a senior. Frazier checks a lot of boxes in terms of frame (6-foot-5, 285 pounds) and length (6-foot-9 wing span, 9.75-inch hands). He also plays low and explodes off the ball. The On300 standout is light on his feet and anchors well, uses his length efficiently, and emphatically, on occasion. That was evident in the run game and also in pass pro, where he was excellent.
Frazier is next in line for Sherrone Moore’s group up there in Ann Arbor that’s as traitsy as any in the country.
4-star WR Dre’lon Miller
On3 Industry Ranking top-100 WR Dre’lon Miller made his presence felt quickly in Silsbee’s (Texas) opening-round playoff game amid a downpour. Miller, one of the best at making combat catches in the country, did just that. Miller is a force with the ball in his hands and strong enough to extend plays with his ability to eat up yardage in space. He also flashed some breakaway speed at the tail end of his touchdown run.
Miller suffered an ankle injury that sidelined him for parts of the second, third and fourth quarters before returning to the field to collect a critical first down on a rushing attempt. Miller’s ability to break tackles was on display at multiple positions. After multiple live evaluations in the off-season over the years and including this playoff game, this analyst believes Miller possesses a high-floor, college-ready skill set as an offensive Chess piece to move across the board. Texas A&M, USC, LSU and Colorado are all battling for the dynamic On300 pass-catcher from Texas.
3-star QB Deuce Adams – Louisville commit
In a defensive-dominated contest, Louisville-committed QB Deuce Adams played largely under duress and could have put some more juice on passes in the middle of the field. Otherwise, Adams flashed on several occasions, including as a passer with a pretty deep ball, which was on display with an outstanding touchdown throw over the top of two defenders.
Adams, who is every bit of 6-foot-2, 180 pounds and able to extend plays with his legs, extended plays and was able to escape pressure on occasion. Louisville’s Jeff Brohm knows a thing or two about developing players with arm velocity and mobility like Adams.
4-star DL Gus Cordova – 2025
2025 On300 DL Gus Cordova worked in multiple spots across the Lake Travis (Texas) defensive front, including snaps inside and also off the edge. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound is broad and has a frame that can carry upwards of 285 or 290 pounds. Cordova plays with a heaping amount of energy and it translates to his play style. He’s tough battling in the trenches and applying pressure from multiple spots up front. He contributed with a handful of run-stuffs as well. He’s a very sure-tackler and consistently forces the issue upfront.
Wisconsin, Kansas, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas A&M, Oregon and others are all in pursuit of the four-star DL in next year’s haul.
