Brian Pittman of Pittman’s Pocket continues to search the HBCU film to build a master list of 2024 HBCU Scouting prospects for the NFL, XFL, CFL, and USFL! We continue with prospects from the 2024 NFL Draft Class.

  1. Andrew Ogletree, DL, Alabama State – The 6-3, 273 pound run stuffer for the Hornets shows flashes on film.
  2. Garrison Wheatley, OL, Norfolk State – The 6-4, 361 pound man from John’s Island, South Carolina is a massive player with solid technique.
  3. Otto Kuhns, QB, Norfolk State – The former EIU Panthers quarterback stands at 6-3, and weighs 194 pounds. He has great touch.
  4. Romell Harris-Freeman, DB, Delaware State – A big and physical defensive back that will make you pay if you come across the middle.
  5. Jared Lewis, QB, Delaware State – An elusive quarterback with good placement. The 6’3 prospect from Baltimore will be trouble for opposing defenses.
  6. Malcolm Mays, QB, Hampton University – A big quarterback standing at 6’5 that played college ball at the JUCO level for Kilgore CC. He is a player to watch in 2023.
  7. Mason King, LB, Hampton University – King is a leader on the defense and a dog in the middle at 6’3, and 240 pounds he already has NFL size.
  8. Antonio Doyle Jr., DL, Jackson State – The former Texas A&M prospect has a good first step and is a problem for opposing offensive linemen.  
  9. Jurriente Davis, LB, Jackson State – Another transfer linebacker for the Tigers who has a nose for the ball. The former Middle Tennessee State backer is a gamer.
  10. D.J. Stevens, TE, Jackson State – The Mississippi native has soft hands and can be a problem for secondaries. He has good size at 6’3 but will need to put on a few pounds.
  11. Jelani Davis, DL, Southern University – Davis had a great season at Dodge City CC before coming to Southern. His first step is very solid for a big man.
  12. Jashon Watkins, CB, Tennessee State – Eddie George may have found himself a diamond in Watkins. He is a huge kid with long arms and great ball skills.
  13. Josh Green, S, Tennessee State – The Orlando native is always around the ball. He stands at 5’11 and is not afraid to come downhill and light you up.
  14. Draylen Ellis, QB, Tennessee State – Ellis is not the tallest QB at 6’0 but he is a great game manager. He can take a game over quickly.
  15. James Green, LB, Tennessee State – Another standout from Orlando, Florida. The Green boys were trouble when they played for Olympia and they will give you hell when you play TSU as well!
  16. Jordan Toles, DB, Morgan State – A big defensive back standing at 6’1 that plays with tenacity. Toles is from DMV area and he is a dog for Morgan State.
  17. Lawrence Richardson, LB, Morgan State – The Philly native is a quick linebacker that takes great angles on the ball. Richardson could be used as a box safety as well.
  18. Marvin Atuatasi, OL, Morgan State – Atuatasi is not the biggest kid, but damn you cannot measure his heart. He is a mean SOB from American Samoa.
