The East squad has a lot of talent on the offensive side of the ball, and several players stood out at the first practice for the Army Bowl. Here are the top-five performers from Monday's practice.
Nick Chubb. Runningback. Cedartown (GA). Committed to Georgia.
It's so hard for a runningback to stand out in all-star practice, but Chubb was the unanimous choice as the top overall offensive performer for the East team. He ran hard, and showed quick feet and great cutting ability.
David Sharpe. Offensive tackle. Jacksonville (FLA) Providence. Committed to Florida.
The big man stood out in both run blocking and with his pass sets. Sharpe has the feet and frame to be a good one for the Gators.
Isaiah Wynn. Offensive guard. St. Petersburg (FLA) Lakewood. Committed to Georgia.
Might have been the top offensive lineman out there Monday, and he has all the qualities needed to be a star at the next level. Has great feet and a nasty streak. Played bigger than his size.
Josh Malone. Wide receiver. Gallatin (TN). Committed to Tennessee.
There were several outstanding wideouts on Monday, but none combines the size, speed and athletic ability of Malone. He caught everything effortlessly, and got open on deep routes and on crossing routes over the middle. Has the skill set to play early.
Sony Michel. Runningback. Fort Lauderdale American Heritage. Committed to Georgia.
Caught the ball well out of the backfield, and ran with authority to edge out a few other players and make the top-five. Simply looks like what a Georgia tailback is supposed to look like.
