Dietrich Riley - Under Armor Game
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.
