Storm Warning

’26 tall, rangy OLB looks to add some weight to résumé

We have before featured this prospect. He is 6’3,” weighs in south of 200, and has two solid varsity seasons under his belt. It is the offseason and prospects like Groves will be looking to add some heft before hitting the field for the all-important, Junior season.

Prior article about Groves

Hudl Page

When we last featured this prospect, he was coming off a productive freshman season and headed into a sophomore campaign where much was expected. We were critical of his not having any pictures online, not having a Hudl page, and not having an “X” account.

We have looked once more. We found his picture online. He has a Hudl account now but could use some seasonal highlights. We still couldn’t find an “X” account for this prospect.

He’s making some progress. He would do well to remedy this situation on all fronts. This will be a prospect for whom programs will be searching; particularly if he continues to improve along the same arc as we have seen to date.

Groves had a fine sophomore season. He played mostly on defense and mostly in the defensive second level at OLB.

Groves is a big target with great hands…his tall frame helps him cover ground in the secondary

Chris Manning, HFC, Hopkins County Central

Groves registered 29-tackles, half a sack, and recovered a fumble. On the FR, he scooped it up and rambled 14-yards for a score.

We still think this will be a multi-phase performer this coming Fall. We talked with head football coach, Chris Manning, about this particular prospect. He told KPGFootball the following:

“Groves is a big target with great hands…his tall frame helps him cover ground in the secondary,” Manning told us. When we asked him if we would see more of Groves on offense in ’24. “Maybe,” was his response as he winked at us.
