The MVP Camp hit Orlando on Saturday at Dr. Phillips High School and over 220 prospects showed up from Florida and Georgia. Here is a look at the prospects who took home the hardware.

Overall MVP

Travares Copeland, Treasure Coast

Copeland has started at QB at Westwood the past two years and had them poised for a state title run before a freak injury sidelined him(helmet broke and split his lip). On Saturday he decided to work out at WR where he walked away with MVP honors. Copeland is an athlete who showed the crisp route running and hands to project highly at the WR spot. He is a competitor who made his home at the front of the WR line, constantly getting reps. Copeland is more quick than fast and could easily slide over to CB or S at the next level. Just a terrific athlete. He also took home the WR award.

Top Underclassman

Co-Winners - Damonte Jones, Jamonte Jones, Trinity Catholic

These 2013 twins were dominant all afternoon. They were very physical at the line of scrimmage all afternoon never letting the WRs get a free release and they covered like a glove. Both are built very strong and have a knack for just getting in the WRs hip pocket and staying there. They are very skilled at this stage in their development and should continue to do big things the next two years.

Top Quarterback

Brice Ramsey, Camden County

The field was abuzz with this 2013 prospect's potential. Ramsey has a terrific arm and is very accurate. The sky is the limit for this youngster. He can get the ball down the field with soft touch or fire fastballs when he needs to. We saw him in September at the Camden County-Miami Central game and he has developed physically quite a bit. He is stronger. Ramsey will have a chance to be one of the top QBs in the country next year.

Top Running Back

Dazmond Patterson, Plant City

Patterson has everything you want except height. He is sub 5'7, but built thick and strong. Patterson has the quickness to get separation on anyone coming in and out of his cuts and catches the ball like a WR. He is strong enough to carry the load at RB, but will probably be a slot type in college. Very productive player who can do it all.

Top Offensive Lineman

James Hamilton, Olympia

At 6'3, 350 this mammoth linemen has terrific feet for a player his size. He displayed a smooth back pedal, incredible power, and overall solid technique. Hamilton will play OG at the next level and he just needs to keep his weight under control. Type of prospect that could thrive in strength and conditioning programs at the next level.

Top Defensive Lineman

Kaseem Edman, Dr Phillips

Edman is a strong 6'3, 220 with very good athleticism and explosiveness. He uses his hands well and showed a variety of moves off the edge. It is possible that he will be recruited as a LB, but appears to be able to add enough weight to play with his hand down. DP lost a stellar senior class of athletes, Edman will a leader of the next wave.

Top Linebacker

Evan Harvey, Dwyer

Harvey, a 2013 prospect, walked away with MVP honors because of his athleticism, competitiveness, and coverage ability. He was able to run with a swift group of RBs and showed the ability to break on the football. Just a sophomore, look for him to make a name for himself this season at one of Florida's top programs.

Top Defensive Back

P.J. Williams, Vanguard

Williams tied for the fastest 40 time at 4.37. The 6'0, 180 pound FSU commitment could play CB or S at the next level. Williams has a very strong upper body, quick hips, and the speed to run with anyone. Those qualities make him very intriguing as a CB going forward. Athletically he has everything that you look for. Williams has already been picked for the UnderArmour All-American game.

The MVP Camp will be in Georgia next month at Lovejoy High School where some of the top talent in the South is expected to be and you can contact Southeastern Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons at chadsimmons@scout.com for details.
