Close to 100 prospects were at D1 Training Center in Franklin, Tenn. Sunday to tryout for the IFM Playmaker's 7on tryout. Here are five prospects who stood out to Scout...

There was some top Tennessee talent on display Sunday in Franklin, Tenn. Here are five that stood out:

Ugo Amadi | 2015 CB | Nashville Overton
Not the biggest (5-foot-9, 183 pounds), but tough and physical. He is much quicker than fast and he reacts well in short space. He worked his hands at the line of scrimmage and he battles receivers for the ball. Was offered by Middle Tennessee Tuesday and he has seven offers.

Gabe Angel | 2016 ATH | Cookeville
Angel catches the ball naturally with ease. He is a true H-Back type who can do so many things. He has good size (6-3/215) and can be used out of the backfield and with his hand down at tight end. Four offers now with more to come.

Jack Jones | 2015 OT | Murfreesboro Oakland
This was not the event linemen could shine, but Jones still stood out. He caught a few balls at tight end, but his leadership skills, agility, and flexibility stood out the most. He always took the lead, he wanted to work, and he has real upside as he builds on his frame. He is a strong Tennessee commitment.

Cameron Ordway | 2015 CB | Pulaskia Giles County
The top prospect at this event possibly. A kid I did not know a lot about entering Sunday, but I do now, and he is on the rise for me. Look for him to become a four-star corner in the near future. He has great length, he has short-space quickness, and he is around 6-feet tall. Expect his offer list to grow.

Josh Smith | 2015 LB | Murfreesboro Overton
In this setting, Smith could showcase his athleticism, and he did just that. He can really turn and run and he moves well in space. His length leads some to think rush end down the line and that is possible, but I still see him as an outside backer right now. Alabama and Auburn are the last two schools to offer.

Other Notes...

  • Andrew Wood is an offensive lineman out of Lebanon Friendship Christian and he is a prospect on the rise. He has a big chest, he is very strong, and he showed better than average feet in the drills Sunday.

  • Scout 300 junior Kyle Phillips is still recovering from shoulder surgery, but he was out there Sunday working as much as he could. He recently visited Alabama and the Tide is high on his list. He is impressive to the eye and one of the top juniors in the country.

  • Tennessee commit Jaylond Woods showed speed and quickness Sunday. He accelerates well and looks like an ideal slot receiver type in UT's offense.

  • Nashville Pearl-Cohn 2015 running back Keshawn Vaughn is a thick back (5-10/207) and he showed a good burst on Sunday. Not a real shifty back, but was making quick cuts and showing he could receive the ball well as a running back. No offers yet, but he will get those.
