Indiana Preps was on hand for the Collectively Evolving Football Academy this past Sunday to check out area talent. CE Academy is apart of the non-profit Collectively Evolving organization founded by Ben Davis high school alum Chris Evans. The mission for CE Academy is to be the premier offseason football program for athletes of all ages.
Best of the Best
It was Dillon Moore who put on a show at the CE Academy last Sunday. Moore plays defensive back for the Ben Davis Giants but opted for reps at wide receiver. The transition looked natural for the 6’2 200-pound prospect. Moore looked good in 1on1s catching the football, running past defenders, and using his large frame to body smaller defenders. The class of 2022 prospect is hearing from a number of FBS programs like Purdue, Cincinnati, and Miami (OH).
Keyshaun Pipkin showcased exactly why he’s a name to know in the Hoosier state’s class of 2022. At 6’3 190-pounds, the North Central high product is a nice target for quarterbacks, and on Sunday, he was a go-to player for the quarterbacks in the building. Pipkin plays the ball at the highest point. He is a good route runner and has deceptive speed. Miami (OH) is targeting Pipkin, and it’s expected a number of other FBS programs to follow suit.
Aside from Pipkin and Moore, the oohs and ahhs were in the direction of Columbus North 2022 wideout Keegan Castetter. The 5’9 165-pound slot left defensive backs stumbling and playing catch up with his smooth route running. Castetter resembles your favorite pro slot receivers. The name Julian Edelman was being echoed by CE Academy coaches.
Anthony Leadford is a 2023 prospect out of Pike high, and we’ve been high on him during the 2020 season. Leadford is a long and rangy defensive back with good coverage skills and ball instincts, making him an attractive prospect. Listed at 6’2 174-pounds, his frame is ready-made for the next level.
Center Grove class of 2022 defensive Jackson Griffin looked good in the competition period. The 5’11 190-pound thumper looked good in the no-contact setting. Fresh off a class 6A state championship win, Griffin isn’t wasting any time to get ready for another title run. Griffin repped at linebacker and looked really natural there.
Avon high 2024 quarterback Mason Reynolds was impressive throwing. He throws with good velocity and made a number of throws in tight windows. A long ball into double-coverage was the throw of the night. Another player who looked the part was Columbus North class of 2022 defensive back, Jaxson Scruggs. The 5’11 175-pound corner got his hands on a number of pass attempts in the 7on7 segment.
Indiana Preps will be at the remaining eight CE Academy workouts highlighting top performers each week.
