Washington, D.C., NFTC: Top 5 RBs

Reggie Corbin

CLIFTON, Va. -- A look at the top five running backs at Saturday's Nike Football Training Camp at Centreville High.

The Nike Football Training Camp stopped at Centreville High on Saturday, and it brought out some tremendous competition.

Scout.com takes a look at the top running back performers at the event:

1. Reggie Corbin, 5-9, 190, Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga
How good was Corbin? During "touch" drills with the linebackers, there were a few reps were he got past the linebacker without getting touched. He showed very good stop-start ability, he changed direction well and he was able to accelerate and get up the field. There wre more gasps from the onlookers for Corbin than then rest of the running backs combined. During pass catching drills, he located the ball well, and he was precise in his routes.

2. Robert Washington, 5-10, 205, Huntsville (N.C.) SouthLake Christian
Washington, a class of 2016 prosepct, is built for power and speed. He did a good job of running down hill, and his footwork was very good. He runs low to the ground and his ability to cut back was evident during 1-on-1s. He was succinct in his route running, and he came out of breaks well. Overall, he was impressive because of his speed and change of direction.

3. Bryce Love, 5-10, 180, Wake Forest (N.C.) High
Love made headlines at the event when he clocked in at 4.3 seconds in the 40-yard dash, and although the wind was howlin' most of the day, there is no doubt of his speed. But there was more to his game as he showed tremendous explosiveness during the 1-on-1s with the linebackers. He also got out on pass routes well, which is where his speed really shined.

4. DeShawn McClease, 5-10, 175, Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith
It's tough to list McClease fourth among the running backs at the event because his showing suggests better, but the competition atop this group was immense. He showed very good footwork and acceleration, and he changed direction nicely. He was explosive and his balance was outstanding. His ability to get out in routes showed he can do more than line up in the backfield and run.

5. Lorenzo Harrison, 5-8, 193, Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha
Harrison, a class of 2016 prospect, is built low to the ground and powerful. He is a downhill runner but showed an ability to be elusive and get to the outside in the running drills against linebackers. He demonstrated quick feet, and he was also effective as a pass catcher.
