Powell Gordon is a name that has been on multiple coaches radars. Coach Harsin decided he had seen and heard enough.


Gordon, who is now headed to play his college football at Auburn, is an โ€œunratedโ€ sleeper prospect from VERY nearby, Auburn High School. (I have him rated as a ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ 89.2). Even though heโ€™s now committed to Auburn, his senior year should get him even more attention.


Powell shows flashes of scary potential as an edge rusher; His flexibility and bend on the edge are as good as the most highly rated prospects in this class.


While watching his film, he doesnโ€™t look like the biggest guy on the fieldโ€”yet heโ€™s 6โ€™3 220. The fact that he looks skinny is a good sign as his frame is going to be able to hold much more weight. Regardless of being somewhat light as an edge rusher, Gordon was virtually unblockable against 7A Alabama opponents week in and week out.





He made his presence known in the 7A State Championship against National Power Thompson (Alabaster).


I love that he shows a high understanding of the edge position as his stance is perfect in order to get a great jump on every play. His motor is extremely high and only operates at one speed: wide open.


I will be watching him closely his senior year as he continues to add weight and strength to go along with the major athleticism.
