H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 09/06/2022

Gabe Brooks National Scouting Analyst


Will Shipley Clemson Tigers

Requisite size and frame for three-down running back prospect. Slightly longer than tall with space to add good mass.

Plays quick-footed, loose-hipped, and with good leverage. Runs with encouraging body lean. Shrinks target as necessary but also plays bigger than listed size. Excellent contact balance with run strength and finishing demeanor to power for extra yards.

Flashes impressive suddenness and short-area burst, whether linear or laterally. Displays good explosion out of cuts at multiple levels. Particularly dangerous in subtle second-level redirections, accelerating out of those cuts to produce big plays.

Best exploding downhill or out of one-cut situations, but also more than capable to string together moves to maximize yards. Highest gear may not match top speed of other elite backs, but does not top out quickly. Accelerates with urgency and continues to build speed beyond the second level. Top-end speed has improved year-over-year.

Enormous production through junior year with almost 5,900 rushing yards on 8.95 per carry. Possesses a two-sport profile that includes baseball. Strong football pedigree as the son of a 2002 NFL fifth-round running back selection.

Will arrive in college with significant mileage from four seasons of full-time high school duties. Lacks ideal context relative to verified athleticism / speed with no track data and very limited combine testing. Limited pass-catching context with fewer than 20 total receptions in first three seasons.

Particularly high-floor running back prospect with physical tools and functional athleticism on the field to develop into a legitimate NFL Draft prospect. Projects to the high-major level as a potential multi-year impact starter.
