He has a national level offer list.
SCOUT All-NFTC Selection - Ryan Newsome
The speed burner from Aledo (Texas) High was one of the most fun players to watch.
The term fast-twitch was created for players like him. he has the ability to turn on the jets and blow past defenders.
Put up good times in the testing, but also took on and beat the best in competition. He is not big, but is a threat to tray and control at the LOS, because if you miss the jam he will embarrass you.
SCOUT All-NFTC Selection - K.J. Hill
The type of kid who you walk in to a camp and instantly pick out as one of the top prospects. He is well put together and runs really well.
He was one of the top testers with a 123.66 Sparq, a 3.97 pro-shuttle shows you what type of athleticism he possesses.
He was also money in the one-on-ones. He made some athletic grabs and showed his route running skills.
He has multiple national level offers.
SCOUT All-NFTC Selection - Jordan Davis
Davis earned an invite to The Opening.
He is a jumbo tight end prospect who actually does some pretty special things. He moves well at almost 260 pounds.
When you see him running routes and getting ope against quick defenders you can remember the junior tape where he lines up at wide out.
Davis is committed to Texas A&M.
The Best of the Rest
- Dahu Green from Westmoore (Okla.) was a real specimen as an outside receiver threat. Checking in at 6'3.5, 193 he was able to use his size to his advantage, but was not a one-hit wonder, he can also run routes. Shows that he is a in a class right alongside the best of the best.
- Kemah Siverand from Cypress (Texas) Ridge is a complete wide receiver. he could play oustide or inside as a slot. He shows skills to get open in space and has a nice build and frame. Checking in at 6'0, 185 he had some of the best testing with a 4.55 40-yard dash and a 4.19 pro-shuttle.
- Derrick Dillon from Franklinton (La.) Pine is much in the mold framewise of the aformentioned Hill and Siverand. He has the same style of athleticism and build. He is impressive and one who could probably play a number of spots at 6'0, 174.
- Will Gragg moved well for a 6'4, 249 pounder. He is a solid target in the passing game and looks like he has the size to take on stronger college defensive linemen.
- Gary Haynes from Manvel (Texas) High took home WR MVP honors and justifiably so. He was busting off quick routes and getting great separation from defensive backs making wow plays. Does not have ideal size, but is electric.
- James Proche from Dallas (Texas) Prime Prep is another receiver who will play well out of the slot. He is a bit more physical than your typical slot, but will get open consistently and make tough plays look easy.
- Sam Mays from Houston (Texas) Kincaid did not have to travel far to make his mark, as his high school played host. He looks lanky, but checked in at 181 pounds. He gets open and makes secure catches.
- Xavier Castille from Rockwall (Texas) High and Brayden Beard from Fredericksburg (Texas) High were two player who were a bit undersized, but put up great testing numbers and were shining in one-on-ones.
