Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas

Posted: 9/27/2012 6:46 AM

Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas 


I know we have our quarterback recruit for this year,  Davis Webb.  However, Hagen Hutchinson from Stamford is a winner, a coach's son, throws well, is fairly fast and can run.  He also has a reputation for having great character.

He doesn't have quality receivers.  Therefore, his statistics are not overwhelming.

He doesn't really appear to have anyone looking at him.  Therefore, I expect he will end up with a preferred walk-on offer somewhere or an offer from a lower division school.  However, in the end, I would not be surprised if he doesn't do well and a number of schools regret not pursuing him.

Re: Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas 


I just watched FoxSW High School Spotlight show and HH won the 1A player of the week award.  Randy Rogers then came on and talked about him.  He said he took his team to the state championship last year and tore his labrum in his throwing shoulder in the game and had to have off season surgery and rehab so he missed a lot of his junior year.  He talked about him being a 5 sport star and being the district mvp in both football and basketball.  He also ran a leg on the state champion 4 x 200 relay team, is an outstanding baseball player and a 6 handicap golfer.  And one other thing, he carries a 4.0 gpa.  Sounds like we could offer him a ship in several sports if not in football.

He does sound like a Winner.
But - how big is he? how fast?
Can he compete like a Tracy Saul or Wes Welker?
He will find a place.
If he is that smart, he'll get that handicap down to scratch and get a golf scholarship. And have a life after football.
I played golf against a Stamford golfer in high school - Chuck Brownfield ( ~1966)- he was a  was a great golfer for University of Arkansas, and played some pro golf.

He led his team to the state championship as quarterback.  He earned both offensive and defensive player of the game honors and was named first team all-state.

RE: Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas 


I watched the State Championship game.
Very impressed- he never left the field and was responsible for 1/2 the tackles.
Agree- he is a winner and worthy of a Div. 1 ship.
Great athlete....Mickey Peters type.
WR, DB, and some QB if needed.

I only saw the highlights but was impressed by his performance. He was named both Offensive and Defensive MVP in that game. Has that ever happened before? I would guess so but I imagine it is a rare event.

I've done quite a bit of homework on him. Good kid. Yes, the Tech coaches know about him. He camped there last summer and apparently out ran all of the other DB recruits that were there including Caleb Woodward, who I think is going to end up being a player.

Yeah why not give him an offer as a safety or grow him into a LB. It's not like we have several commits or depth at these spots.

I wonder if his medical history with the shoulder is making schools cautious?

Just noticed he was co-player of the year in Dave Cambell's Football along with Dee Paul.  Someone posted a link to winter addition with the players of the year shown on football board.

Re: Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas 


Such players who can play offense or defense are worth a ship. As long as they have the athletic ability they are football smart enough to change positions as needed.

Especially qb's who are smart, they make good safeties and LB's.

I also think they occasionally end up back at qb. Injuries and such often make them valuable depth.

My question, would he compare to say Austin Zouzalik athletically. Not really in that he wouldn't be a punt returner but could play receiver or db.

Sometimes kids like this are valuable as practice players, running scout team offenses during the week to prepare defenses. Smart kids who can learn offenses quickly and implement them during practice.

Preferred walk on maybe, but sometimes worth a ship for other reasons. To me its a value question, if you give a ship for him what are you giving up as far as a ship elsewhere. Would you trade a 3 star LB for a scout team qb.

He has run low 22's in the 200 and long jumps close to 21'.

He is worth a ship in my book. He has receiver speed.

Just depends if we have someone better lined up.

Re: Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas 


Last time I exchanged messages with him, he had not been invited for an official visit. I think he knows that playing at a 1-A school and having to transition from QB to safety in college will be an adjustment. I have heard if he's offered a PWO, he'll take it, but he hasn't told me that. 

I am pretty good friends with a coach in his district. Here is a direct quote.

"I am a big fan of Hagen Hutchinson. I would take a chance on him in a heartbeat if I was Tech. He runs very well and is incredibly smart. His football IQ and ability to make plays are uncanny. If he would concede the desire to be a quarterback and just play safety then he would have a chance to do very well. He would be just like a Cody Davis, only faster. He will hit and he covers pretty well. They played a lot of cover 3 in their defense, so if he bit on the run he was very susceptible to getting burned. When they went Cover 2, he was able to take away the entire half of the field on his side. He is the kind of kid that could be All-Conference if someone would take a chance because he is only going to get better. Everyone knows what kind of football player he is, but listen to the rest of this. He averages around 20 ppg in basketball. He used to be their number 2 pitcher in baseball before he got hurt. He wasn't that great of a pitcher, but the dude can swing the bat. He runs a 21-22 second 200 in track and runs on every relay they have and they are always state qualifiers in every one of those. He is a scratch golfer that could go play college golf and probably end up getting a chance to play on some of the smaller tours. The kid is just a great athlete and a great kid. He is smart and does everything. He is very competitive and supportive of his teams. Last year when he was hurt, he was still on the bench at every basketball and baseball game, even though he couldn't play. Tech would be smart to take a chance on him."

You hope it works out for a kid like that. He'll be successful wherever he decides to go.

We must have a lot of good walk on candidates if we don't offer him as a PWO.....

Re: Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas 


If I ever strike it big financially, my first order of business would be to endow a scholarship called the "Welkership".  It would be for a guy like Hutchinson, an overachiever who does all the right things and maybe just needs a chance.  Still, we've been pretty good about finding these kids over the years.  I hope Kliff continues this.  I'd kind of like us to give Hutchinson a shot.

Re: Hagen Hutchinson - Stamford, Texas 


He is similar to Justis Nelson in size and speed but I would say Justis is a smoother athlete. Plays a little faster and against higher competition.

In a way I can see why he would be a preferred WO over scholarship, but I haven't seen him play safety or receiver. I would like to see film of any defense he has played.

Was the video above before or after his injury?
