Dietrich Riley - Under Armor Game

Dietrich Riley - Under Armor Game

Scout.com's No. 7 ranked safety, Dietrich Riley from St. Francis High School (La Canada, Calif.) is one of the top prospects at the Under Armor All America game that has not made his college decision, but don't expect one to bew announced this weekend.

With the number of top programs chasing Dietrich Riley the 6-foot-1, 195-pound safety has high expectations to meet while participating at the Under Armor All America game. It was only the first day of practice, but collectively the Scout.com recruiting staff felt that Riley struggled to impress.

Riley really struggled today as he did not appear to match-up physically with some of the explosive talent. He is going to need to show more range the rest of the week or we might project him to the offensive side. – Scout.com

Personally, I think Riley is a fantastic kid, but I did agree with the Scout staff. I just felt he struggled to keep pace with some of the other top players. He just didn't look comfortable on the field today. He had difficulty staying with wide receivers during the one-on-one drills. There were a couple reps where he had nice coverage, but more often than not, he lost the battle.

During the scrimmage he an opportunity for an interception, but didn't come down with it. The ball was kind of thrown up for grabs, rather than Riley making a play.

It was just the first day, so there is plenty of time for Riley to bounce back.

Riley is still considering USC, Notre Dame, Florida, UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, Tennessee and Cal. Expect Riley to make an announcement on signing day or even later into February.
