Adam Breneman: Highlights, Scouting Report for 4-Star Recruit

Full RideB/R VideoDecember 28, 2012

As one of the top tight ends in the 2013 recruiting class, Adam Breneman figures to make waves at the next level.

According to 247Sports' composite ranking, the 6'5", 227-pound youngster out of Cedar Cliff High School is the No. 2 tight end in the class.

At this stage, Breneman has good size, bulk and height for his position, but he could stand to develop a little bit more in that area.

He won't blow you away with his explosiveness and athleticism, but he does possess above-average quickness and speed for his size.

What really sets Breneman apart from most tight ends in the class is his knowledge of the game, his toughness and his hands. He's not afraid to take a hit across the middle, he can pluck balls away from his body and he uses tempo and a feel for the game to gain separation from defenders and find seams.

The 4-star recruit could use some help with his blocking technique (particularly in improving the pop he delivers at the point of contact), but he does display good hand placement, and he's tough and determined enough to be an asset in that area with some more coaching.

Overall, you're looking at a player who could fit into any scheme given his knowledge of the game, and he has the quickness, smarts and motor to make a big impact at the next level. He may struggle against top-end athletes early in his career, though.
