A number of 2014 prospects stood out at the Atlanta MVP Camp on Sunday and Scout takes a look at some of those here in this feature.

Over 400 prospects attended the MVP Camp in McDonough, Ga. on Sunday and a number of 2014 prospects showed that they are prospects to keep an eye on the next two years.

Here are some that Scout liked on Sunday.

  • Lance Austin - 5-10/170 - CB - Lamar County (GA)
    Quick Hitter: Physical style of play with good feet. He likes to play press coverage and he is at his best there.

  • Lawrence Austin - 5-9/170 - CB - Lamar County (GA)
    Quick Hitter: Like his brother [Lance], he is a physical football player. He could be a running back and/or kick-returner too. Good quickness.

  • Orlando Brown - 6-7/360 - OT - Peachtree Ridge (GA)
    Quick Hitter: Just a massive young man and he will need to slim down before playing on the next level. He has good bend, but needs to work on weight, strength, and feet.

  • Myron Burton - 6-2/185 - WR - Peachtree Ridge (GA)
    Quick Hitter: Very athletic young man with long arms and good speed. He looks like he could play wide receiver or safety on the next level.

  • Detric Dukes - 6-0/215 - MLB - Tucker (GA)
    Quick Hitter: He has played some with his hand down at Tucker, but will likely be an inside linebacker on the next level. He is very physical and he has good athleticism.

  • Cole Garvin - 6-1/195 - QB - Sandy Creek (GA)
    Quick Hitter: This signal caller was one of the top four quarterbacks at this event and some had him as high as two. He spins the ball read, he is accurate, and he is smart.

  • Terry Googer - 6-3/200 - WR - Woodward Academy (GA)
    Quick Hitter: He has played all over the field in high school, but he looks to be settling in at wide receiver. He is long, athletic, and more of a jump-ball guy, but he could really become a top guy once he settles in at wideout.

  • Wesley Green - 5-11/170 - CB - M.L.K. (GA)
    Quick Hitter: Recovery speed is what stood out about Green on Sunday. He also showed good balance when in his back peddle. He has long arms and good ball skills as well.

  • Tyler Harris - 6-3/205 - QB - Pierce County (GA)
    Quick Hitter: Arm strength is his biggest strength with size coming in no. two. The ball comes out of his hand hot, sometimes, too hot, but he could become a hot name in the coming months.

  • Demarre Kitt - 6-1/191 - WR - Sandy Creek (GA)
    Quick Hitter: Expectations were high and he performed at that level. He is a silky smooth wide receiver that ran good routes, caught the ball well, and played as fast as needed.

  • Tez Parks - 6-1/180 - S - Callaway (GA)
    Quick Hitter: There is not a lot of things athletically that Parks cannot do. He is the younger brother of 2012 Auburn signee Ricky Parks, and like his big brother, he can be used all over the field. He will likely be a free safety on the next level.

  • Milan Richard - 6-3/215 - TE - Calvary Day (GA)
    Quick Hitter: He showed very good body control on Sunday. He was able to get behind the linebackers and he made good adjustments on the ball. He caught everything within reach.

  • Dallas Rivers - 5-11/183 - RB - Tucker
    Quick Hitter: He has played a lot of fullback his first couple of years in high school, but he will be a true running back the second half of his high school career. He is strong, he can catch, and he breaks through would-be tacklers.

  • Elijah Staley - 6-6/205 - QB - Wheeler
    Quick Hitter: Basketball is the sport he has created the most buzz in so far, but football could soon to come. He has a good arm, he spun it well throughout the camp, and he did not put a lot of strain on his shoulder when throwing the football.

  • Maetron Thomas - 5-9/165 - RB - Forest Park (GA)
    Quick Hitter: A very quick athlete that looks like he could play running back, slot receiver, or cornerback on the next level. He showed quick feet and very good hands out of the backfield.
