CORNELIUS, N.C. - Hough High School had a lot of talent on their football fields Sunday at the Nike Football Training Camp and Scout names their Top 10 here.

Over 200 prospects competed at the Nike Football Training Camp on Sunday and a number of prospects had strong performances. Here's Scout's Top 10.

  • Braxton Berrios - WR - Raleigh, N.C.-Leesville Road
    Quick Hitter: Berrios is a 2014 athlete that knows how to get open. He is very tough, he he is quick out of his cuts, and he show the ability to make the touch catches.

  • Larenz Bryant - OLB - Charlotte, N.C.-Vance
    Quick Hitter: This linebacker performed about as well as I linebacker can in a camp setting. He was very impressive in coverage, he closed on the receivers well, and he got his hands on many ball. He is an explosive athlete.

  • Riley Ferguson - QB - Matthews, N.C.-Butler
    Quick Hitter: Ferguson was on his game Sunday. He really threw the ball well, he made good decisions, and he stuck the ball into some tight windows. He was as accurate as Scout has seen him over the last three years.

  • Will Grier - QB - Charlotte, N.C.-Davidson's Day
    Quick Hitter: Grier is only a sophomore, but he hung with the older guys at this event. He has a nice high release, he showed the ability to make each throw that was asked of him, and he really responded to the challenge on Sunday.

  • Jalen Latter - CB - Charlotte, N.C.-Vance
    Quick Hitter: This was a prospect that snuck up on Scout. He is not a big name right now, but he could be before all is said and done. He is an athlete that played corner and he played physical with good speed. He showed good ball skills as well.

  • Carl Lawson - DE - Alpharetta, Ga.-Milton - Auburn commitment
    Quick Hitter: Not many challenged Lawson during the one-on-one session, he just over-powered the opponents much of the time, but showed speed too. He was outstanding during the drills as well showing great agility.

  • Josh McNeil - TE - Durham, N.C.-Hillside
    Quick Hitter: It is hard to think McNeil has only played one year of football, he is naturally gifted. He needs to work on running better routes, but he has soft hands, he is tough for linebackers to cover, and he showed a lot of natural athleticism Sunday.

  • Brice Ramsey - QB - Kingsland, Ga.-Camden County - Georgia commitment
    Quick Hitter: It looks effortlessly when Ramsey throws the football. He is just a smooth quarterback who has a very strong arm and he got into a good rhythm at this event. He made each throw, he showed touch, and he hit receivers in stride.

  • Ryan Switzer - WR - Charleston, W.V.-Geo Washington - North Carolina commitment
    Quick Hitter: Switzer may not be the biggest (5-9/175), but he has elite quickness. He puts defensive backs on their heels, he runs very crisp routes, and he catches the ball well away from his body.

  • Tramel Terry - WR - Goose Creek, S.C.-Goose Creek - Georgia commitment
    Quick Hitter: Terry was one of the quickest receivers off the ball at this event and he made some great adjustments on balls as well. He caught everything thrown his way and he was tough for defensive backs to stay with in coverage.

    Others under consideration: Khris Francis (Durham, N.C.-Hillside), Holland Fisher (Midlothian, Va.-Midlothian), Peter Kalambayi (Matthews, N.C.-Butler), Desmond Lawrence (Charlotte, N.C.-Charlotte Christian), Uriah LeMay (Matthews, N.C.-Butler), Tyquan Lewis (Tarboro, N.C.-Tarboro), Lewis Neal (Wilson, N.C.-Hunt), Mike Sutton (Raleigh, N.C.-Panther Creek).
