In the preliminary listings, there seems to be quite a few notable players who are slated to attend the NIKE Football Training Camp in Houston. Here are a few players who should be on hand and will participate on the offensive side of the ball.
At quarterback one of the most impressive players at the TCU NFTC was Allen High’s Alec Morris, a big-bodied thrower, who has continued to get stronger and stronger with each passing day. Also West Virginia commitment Ford Childress is set to showcase his wares, the 6’5 private school star should excel throwing the ball to elite talents at the wide receiver position.
The running back grouping may have the star of the camp in Texas A&M speedster Trey Williams. He is bound to make some cool things happen in the drills, as his speed should give him a nice advantage when going up against linebackers one-on-one. Also keep an eye on Benjamin Catalon, a 5’8 back who has already verbally committed to play at Colorado. He is an exciting player who will take it hard in the middle of the field, but can also put the shake on when he has to get it to the outside. Diboll super star Terrence Taylor could use this opportunity to put himself on the national radar. He may not be a running back, but E.J. Fatu will be one of the most talented prospects at the camp.
In the trenches it looks like Guthrie High’s Blake Belcher is one of the top prospects set to attend. He is versatile player who could play inside or outside on he next level and a number of schools have already come calling with scholarship offers for him. Braden Meador is another recruit who has seen the interest spike around hi in recent weeks and a solid performance in the one-on-one session of the camp could open even more eyes. There are a number of other solid prospects set to attend, but we will be watching Cy-Fair’s Jeromy Irwin with a keen eye, it seems he could be on the verge of some nice things.
The wide receiver position always brings out a wealth of talent at an event like this and Saturday will be no exception. Bralon Addison will likely work out on both sides of the ball, but when running routes he is almost unguardable. Texas A&M commit Jaevon Richardson may get the chance to show he is way more than a possession style receiver. The player who may actually steal the show may be from the “boot state” as LSU commit Travin Dural is on the list to attend and he has great size to go along with unbelievable moves. There will be a number of other top receivers waiting to showcase their wares. Shaquille Jones, Quan West, Chance Allen and Marcus Johnson are all scheduled.
