Atlanta MVP Camp: 10 that Impressed

Mecole Hardman

It was rainy, it was wet, and it was a little chilly at times, but the athletes still came out and competed at the Atlanta MVP Camp. Here are 10 that stood out to Scout...

Over 300 football players competed at the MVP Camp Sunday at Lovejoy High School in Hampton, Ga. and many caught Scout's attention.

Here are the 10 that stood out the most:

Chris Barnes, 2016 OL, Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County
Hard to believe Barnes only has an offer from Old Dominion at this time. He can play tackle, but longterm he is best suited for guard. He moves well in short space and he did an excellent job against the big ends and rush ends during the one-on-one session. He left with the Top Offensive Lineman award.

Levi Brown, 2015 OL, Franklin (Ga.) Heard County
There was not a bigger surprise at this camp than Brown. The young man has put on good weight since the end of the season and he was there to compete and to win. He took the coaching in, he used it during the one-on-one session and he may have gotten beat once (And that could have been a draw), but he won over a dozen reps. One of the offensive line coaches called him "another Ben Jones" (Former center at Georgia). Brown is a kid nobody was talking to before the camp, but at the end, everyone was talking to him and about him.

Montrell Custis, 2015 DB, Hampton (Ga.) Lovejoy
Is he a corner? Is he a safety? In some drills, he looked like a future free safety, but he can also cover. He has very good ball skills and he has good reaction quickness. He measured in just over 6-feet and he really performed at a high level from start to finish Sunday.

Sam Dobbs, 2015 TE, Fairburn (Ga.) Landmark Christian
Still no offers for the 6-foot-5, but the 218 pound jumbo-athlete will get his share before all is said and done. Dobbs has played a lot of receiver on the high school level, but he is a tight end or H-back on the next level. He ran very good routes Sunday and continued to give the quarterbacks a big target to throw at throughout the event. He is a physical player with soft hands.

Theodore Eboige, 2015 DE, Lithonia (Ga.) Arabia Mountain
Maybe a bit of a tweener, but Eboige can get it done off the edge. The 6-foot-1, 242 pound junior may project in some schemes as an outside linebacker, but he is strong as a pass rusher. He showed he could win battles with strength or quickness Sunday at the MVP Camp. The coaches were impressed by his agility during the drills as well.

Nikita Fair, 2015 OL, Washington (Ga.) Wilkes
Fair may be one of the bigger sleepers in the state of Georgia when talking linemen. The 2015 OL still has a lot of developing to do, but he has some things you really like. He showed nice punch Sunday and his balance was good when engaged. He needs to get stronger and improve his footwork, but he is one to watch in the coming months.

Mecole Hardman, 2016 ATH, Elberton (Ga.) Elbert County
This athlete out of eastern Georgia was very impressive. He is very quick and he is fluid in coverage at cornerback. He plays quarterback in high school, but he projects as a corner with his length, hips, and quickness. He has very good ball skills, he played strong press coverage, and was talked about as one of the top underclassmen at this event. His offers will come.

Harland Howell, 2015 WR, Marietta (Ga.) Wheeler
Wide receiver was a strong position Sunday and Howell stood out among that group. He has good size (6-2/191 pounds) and he showed great body control. He adjusted to passes time and time again and more times than not, he hauled them in. Not a true burner, but did get behind the coverage and was solid out of his cuts.

Tobias Little, 2016 LB, Atlanta (Ga.) Mays
This young man is only a sophomore in high school, but he looks more like a sophomore in college. Little is a true inside linebacker, but where he impressed the most was when he was able to run with running backs out of the backfield. He has good lateral quickness and he will see many more offers come his way this spring. Clemson and Georgia Tech have already offered.

Gabe Tiller, 2016 QB, Lawrenceville (Ga.) Archer
The quarterbacks had to deal with tough conditions Sunday as it rained for the first half of the camp and was damp the rest of the day. Tiller though dealt with it and still through the ball well. He showed good footwork in the drills, he set his feet in the pocket, and then through good balls throughout the day. He is a sophomore signal caller to watch in Georgia.
