The Nike Football Training Camp circuit will stop by Orlando on Sunday so lets take a look at some of the top offensive prospects who are registered to be there.

Quarterbacks:
A lot of people consider Winter Park's Asiantii Woulard the state's top quarterback prospect in the 2013 class. He has ideal size, athleticism, and a live arm. The USF commitment will throw it around on Sunday. Island Coast standout Kurt Benkert had a solid performance last week in Miami and is planning to return to Nike in Orlando this weekend. He has a couple early offers. A pair of talented underclassmen are expected to be there as well -- Wharton's Chase Litton and Lake Nona's Tucker Isreal. Litton was very impressive at the IMG 7on7 in Bradenton last month and has a lot of schools showing strong interest already. Isreal led the state in some key passing categories last season and will be looking to show off his skills at this event.

Running Backs:
A.J. Lane had an outstanding sophomore season at Winter Haven High. He got injured last fall but now the Florida commitment is healthy and doing the camp tour. He's very talented and expected to do very well at this event. Fort Pierce Central's Marcus Levy had a strong performance in Miami last weekend and is expected to make a return trip to Orlando tomorrow. He has a few early offers, including one from South Carolina, and was at USF today. Deland High's JoJo Kemp ran for over 1,300 yards for the 8A school that made the state playoffs in 2011. He has several offers and will be looking to really elevate his recruiting stock tomorrow.

Wide Receivers:
If everyone shows up as expected, this will be the strongest position group at this event. Florida State commitment Tony Stevens and Evans High teammate Dominic Walker are two of the top wideouts in the Orlando area and they're expected to be in attendance. Two of the top receivers in the Tampa area -- Jesuit's Travis Johnson and TB Tech's Richard Benjamin -- have offers from schools all over the country and are expected to compete at this event. Miami commitment Jayron Kearse and Florida commitment Ahmad Fulwood are major prospects expected to attend, as is former Miami commit and Jones speedster Kermit Whitifled -- the fastest player in the state. The 2014 class should be well represented too, led by East Lake's Artavious Scott, who already has an offer from Florida State and others.

Tight Ends:
Lake Mary's Taylor Marini already has a few BCS offers and he is expected to be at this event. Reilly Gibbons is a rising junior from St. Pete Catholic who already has an offer from Tennessee and will be among the state's premier prospects in the 2014 class. He plans to attend.

Offensive Linemen:
Laremy Tunsil is considered by some to be the state's top overall prospect in the 2013 class and the Lake City Columbia standout is expected to attend. Olympia's Shawn Curtis, Plant's Richy Klepal, and St. Thomas Aquinas's Kyle Schafenacker also have BCS level offers and plan to attend. The 2014 group could be strong as well, led by East Lake's Mason Cole -- a future BCS level prospect.
