Small School Scouting: Mid-Week MACTION and a Big FCS QB

small school

This week in small school scouting, I look at the prospects from a couple of mid-week MAC games and look at another FCS QB that played last Saturday.

Let’s look at how the top prospects from those games fared.


I wanted to look at Arkansas transfer QB Cole Kelley. Kelley is a mammoth passer at 6’7” and 260-pounds. He has a big arm and moves well in the pocket. Kelley is not going to outrun anyone but he isn’t glacial. He needs to do a better job of protecting the football in the pocket. Against McNeese State, Kelley completed 18/30 passing for 245 yards with two touchdowns. He had one interception and one rushing TD. Kelley should get a chance at an All-Star game. As of today, I can’t see him being drafted but would be surprised if he wasn’t in a camp.


Dominique Robinson was invited to the Shrine Game so I figured I would get my eyes on him. The 6’4” 252-pound edge rusher had two tackles and one sack against Ohio. Robinson has a great motor but is mostly going to be a rotational piece.


The Huskies utilize Clint Ratkovich in a multitude of offensive ways. He plays running back, full back, H-back, and more for NIU. Ratkovich carried it six times for nine yards and two scores against Kent State on Wednesday night. I am not overly enamored with him as a prospect but he does have fans out there.


If you are looking for a late-round sleeper quarterback, Dustin Crum may be your man. Crum has decent size and a strong arm. Crum has athletic traits that can be further developed by good coaching. Against NIU he completed 20/30 passing for 322 yards and two TDs. He also carried the ball four times for 72 yards and a score.
