Kevin Mouhon recruit scouting report: big Georgia linebacker

Kevin Mouhon - Norcross High School

Mouhon is already considered one of the top players from the state of Georgia in the class of 2014.

Kevin Mouhon is a consensus four-star inside linebacker prospect in the Class of 2014. The Norcross High School (Ga.) product has offers from plenty of major-conference schools already, including Ohio State, Florida State, Auburn, Tennessee, Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Penn State, Arkansas and Wisconsin.

Mouhon stands 6'2, weighs 225 pounds and has been clocked with a 4.60 in the 40-yard dash. He is considered a four-star recruit by 247Sports and the No. 129 overall prospect in the class of 2014. Rivals also rates him as a four-star player, though that service doesn't have him placed as highly in its overall rankings. Scout has him listed as a three-star prospect.

He's coming off a big junior season in which he accumulated 152 tackles, including five sacks, as well as a pair of interceptions. You can find him on Twitter right here.

Bud Elliott, National Recruiting Analyst: For many prospects, the reason why they are considered elite is the combination of size (or projected size) and athleticism. Mouhon is one of these players. Mouhon checks in with excellent size at 220-225 pounds, but shows the athleticism of a player perhaps 10-15 pound slighter. Here is his film.

Mouhon could be a more impactful hitter if he didn't tackle so high, but this is something that can be repped and improved. He also needs to do a much better job of using his hands to control and attack blockers. Even in his highlight, which in theory should showcase his best plays, he often takes on the blocker with his shoulder and or head and risks being blocked, losing sight of the ball carrier, or both.

Mouhon is better against the pass than I expected, given his lack of great linebacker speed. Mouhon is covering a good amount of ground, and somehow looks slow, though I know he is not. Twice in his highlight, he closes on the football well and makes the interception. He should work on his zone drops and his angles, both against the pass and in pursuit, however.

With continued coaching and work on his game, Mouhon can be a multi-year starter at the BCS level.
