Seton Hall's Myles Powell Suffers Concussion, Out Against Maryland

December 15, 2019 at 02:57AM

Myles Powell hit his head on the hardwood after taking a charge in Seton Hall's game against Rutgers.

Seton Hall guard Myles Powell suffered a "pretty bad" concussion in the Pirates' loss to

Rutgers on Saturday and will remain sidelined for the team's game against No. 4 Maryland on Thursday, coach Kevin Willard announced.

Powell sustained the injury after taking a charge and hitting his head on the hardwood. After he got up, Powell ran into teammate Tyrese Samuel. 

"He asked me during the game, 'Why are we practicing at Rutgers?,'" Willard said on AM970. "We sat down and his eyes kind of rolled into the back of his head, it just hit him with a wave."

Willard added that Powell was starting to "come through" after the game ended.

Due to the NCAA concussion protocol, Powell will not be ready in time to face Maryland on Thursday. He will be evaluated in three days, Willard said, where his status can be further determined. 

"We'll see what happens after Maryland," Willard said.

Seton Hall, 6-4, had already lost its second-leading scorer heading into Saturday, as forward Sandro Mamukelashvili remained sidelined with a fractured wrist suffered on Dec. 8 against Iowa State. 

An All-American candidate and Seton Hall's leading scorer, Powell stands at sixth in the nation in scoring with 22.9 points per game. He also sprained his ankle earlier this season but did not miss significant time.

Ohio State's Chase Young Clarifies Recent Comments on NFL Draft Decision

December 15, 2019 at 02:42AM

Ohio State's Chase Young said he was caught "off-guard" on Friday night when TMZ Sports asked him about his NFL draft plans, adding that he has no "plan" yet.

Ohio State's Chase Young said he was caught "off-guard" on Friday night

when TMZ Sports asked him about his NFL draft plans, to which he responded that returning to school was "the plan."

Asked about his comments on Saturday, ahead of the Heisman Trophy presentation, Young said he has no "plan."

"I'm not even really worried anything in the future, I'm just worried about just beating Clemson right now," he said.

Young, a junior, leads the nation in sacks (16.5) and has 44 tackles, 21 for loss and seven forced fumbles this season. Earlier this week, he won the Chuck Bednarik Award given to the nation's top defensive player. He was suspended for two games in November for violating NCAA rules but returned to set a new Ohio State single-season record for sacks against Penn State.

The potential No. 1 pick in this year's draft and his teammate Justin Fields are among the group of Heisman finalists along with LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts. If Young enters the draft, Burrow could be his greatest threat to being selected No. 1 overall.

Elite Linebacker Trenton Simpson Snags Clemson Offer, Commits on Visit

December 15, 2019 at 02:29AM

Clemson spurs into Early Signing Period week with fresh offer, commitment of elite linebacker prospect Trenton Simpson.

Entering Saturday, Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek senior Trenton Simpson was set to start his role as one of Clemson’s esteemed official visitors. Prior to this visit, Simpson had not yet been verbally offered by the perennial playoff power.

After a few hours, the senior linebacker projection not only got the good news he’d been curious about, but Simpson also provided some good news for Dabo Swinney and company, in kind. And just days away from the Early Signing Period, where he can make the decision official,

he committed.

Simpson announced the news via Twitter just hours after announcing the Clemson scholarship offer that seemingly eluded him as a prospect. The one-time Auburn commitment was considering several programs down the stretch and desired to get to a decision before the week’s outset. 

Just days earlier, he told Sports Illustrated he had yet to settle on one school or even a small group of finalists heading into the weekend. Simpson said the last visit, in addition to in-home visits from potential coaches, would settle his recruitment.

SI Scouting Report: 

Most 6-foot-3, 225-pound linebackers with length and three-down ability are the types you see selected very early each NFL Draft, and Simpson fits the profile both on and off the field. He’s got great length and raw athleticism, but has an all-around game that makes him look like a veteran at an early stage.

Coming up as a running back, Simpson seamlessly transitioned to linebacker in high school because of his vision and striking ability on the field. It means he’s very suited to play inside linebacker in college, but even more intrigue exists on the outside. Good length and a feel for coming off the edge—which led to 20-plus sacks in 2019 as an occasional rusher—makes Simpson an ideal three-down candidate. Not only can Simpson rush the passer, he can also play the run and cover to boot; exhibiting the ideal traits that this position calls for in this day and age.

In terms of overall athleticism and play-making ability, Simpson additionally put in over 1,000 yards running the ball as a senior for Mallard Creek, one of the top preparatory programs in the country. 

Clemson’s 2020 Class

While there are still some top prospects set to announce between now and the end of the Early Signing Period this week, it will be tough for programs to match Clemson’s overall star power in the end. The group has compiled what is to be expected this era under Swinney, a top class with superstars paired up with one another.

The defensive line group is led by a trio that is all in competition with each other for No. 1 in any individual ranking in Bryan Bresee, Demonte Capehart and Myles Murphy with the compact and disruptive Tre Williams to boot. Simpson rounds out a linebacker corps that may end up as the best in America should it add Justin Flowe, but already sits elite with Kevin Swint and Sergio Allen on board. The offensive line group is expansive with a half-dozen prospects while running backs Demarkcus Bowman and Kobe Pryor could contend for top duo in the country.

Of course top quarterback prospect D.J. Uiagalelei is where most would kick off the Tiger recruiting talk, but this class is that good. The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco star goes for the perfect end to his senior season later Saturday night in a state championship tilt with Concord (Calif.) De La Salle.

Newtown High School Wins State Title on Sandy Hook Anniversary

December 15, 2019 at 02:21AM

Seven years to the day of the Sandy Hook shooting, Newtown High School won its first state title since 1992.

Seven years to the day of the fatal shooting at Sandy Hill Elementary, an event in which 20 first graders and six adults were killed in a spray of gunfire, the Newtown High School football team made history.

With just 3.3 seconds remaining in the Class LL state title game Saturday afternoon, Newtown Nighthawks quarterback Jack Street connected with Riley Ward for a 36-yard game-winning touchdown, as the school took home its first state title since 1992.

The 13-7 win over Darien High School capped off an undefeated 13-0 season for top-seed Newtown. 

The game reportedly began with a moment of silence in remembrance of the shooting victims. 

It ended with a euphoric triumph.
