HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- A few weeks ago, the first annual Total Exposure Football Camp took place at SouthLake Christian School. FOX Sports Next was on hand and below are the event’s top performers.


1. LB Cayson Collins – Collins was the top prospect at the camp and took home MVP honors. The Charlotte (N.C.) Berry Academy and North Carolina commit has added some good weight in the offseason and is now up to 215 pounds. He was extremely impressive individual drills. Then in the 7-on-7 part of the camp, Collins showed the ability to cover running backs out of the backfield and receivers in the slot. Overall, he has had a great spring.

2. RB Moe Neal – Neal is one of the top 2016 prospects in North Carolina and showed why at the camp. The Gastonia (N.C.) Forestview standout ran a 4.6-second laser-timed 40-yard dash, which was the fastest time at the camp. The 5-11, 170-pound Neal was very fluid in individual drills. In the 7-on-7 session, Neal ran good routes, showed good explosiveness and caught the ball extremely well. He has early offers from Mississippi State and Akron. He said he is also hearing from Florida State, Michigan and North Carolina.

3. QB Luke Lancaster – There is a lot to like about the 2015 Huntersville (N.C.) SouthLake Christian quarterback. He has good size (6-4, 180), a strong arm and a good work ethic. He was far and away the top quarterback at the camp. Overall, he needs to continue to work on his accuracy. However, his best football is ahead of him. He is attracting interest from Appalachian State, Clemson, Duke, Georgia, Mississippi State, North Carolina and North Carolina State.

4. WR Tyler Phillips – The 5-9, 160-pound Phillips was the most consistent receiver at the camp. The 2014 Charlotte (N.C.) Hough playmaker showed good speed and quickness. He runs very sharp routes and has soft hands. Phillips showed the ability to make tough catches in traffic and also beat defenders deep. He will need to continue to get stronger, but is a prospect that should attract more interest in the near future.

5. MLB Jalen Nash - Nash is a tweener at 6-2 and 240 pounds. The Mount Holly (N.C.) East Gaston product has played both defensive end and linebacker in high school, but worked out at strictly linebacker at camp. He is strong and has good straight-line speed. Nash needs to continue to improve on his lateral quickness and in pass coverage, but with experience could develop into a solid college player. He is attracting interest from Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, Memphis, North Carolina and North Carolina State.

Underclassman to watch: CB Aapri Washington – Despite being only a rising freshman, Washington did not back down from a challenge all day. The 2017 SouthLake Christian prospect was solid in coverage and showed good instincts against guys two, three and four years older than him. The 5-foot-8, 150-pound Washington is definitely a prospect to keep an eye on in the future.
