Utah High School Footballl Camp wrap

SALT LAKE CITY - Over 60 players braved mid-week hassles to congregate at Judge Memorial High School - just a hop, skip and a jump from the University of Utah campus - to compete in the second part of the Utah High School Football Combine.
Because there was no testing involved, college coaches could watch the event - and
were the two schools on the road at the time to take advantage. In fact, Utes' Head Coach Kyle Whittingham took time from his busy schedule to watch the best in attendance.
Arguably the top player working out that day was a player the Utes have already offered -
. The 6-foot, 165-pound corner - who has also been offered by
- showed off his cat-quick feet and athleticism in staying with the best receivers the day had to offer. And that was saying something, as Timpview's
ripped up the field with some great cuts, routes and catches. He may under six feet (5-foot-11), but there has to be a place for him somewhere in D1 ball. He's too polished and too solid to be ignored - much like Jordan's
(5-10, 180) - who has been offered by
- was the other top corner trying to lock down receivers, and he did a nice job of getting physical at the right time. His timing, coupled with his physicality and speed, makes Nicholson a very intriguing prospect.
If you weren't paying attention, you may have lost
in the crowd - but only briefly - whether it was throwing or catching passes. It was rumored that Whittingham had come to the workout to specifically watch a few top Beehive-State players - and Richard was one of them. At 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, Richard - from Union High School in Roosevelt - started out with the quarterbacks, but then moved to receiver to show off his skills at WR and they are considerable. Basically Richard is a heck of an athlete, and could also play safety at the next level too. He just received his first offer - from Snow College, a junior college - and I would expect the in-state schools will follow Richard very closely all year long.
Watching the linemen, arguably the top 2008 prospect at camp was Kearns'
. At 6-foot-4 and 285 pounds, Mahonri clearly has the size that just screams out D1. He could play on either side of the ball, but right now Seumanu wants to focus on defensive tackle. Both BYU and Utah are looking close right now.
If Seumanu was the top DT, the top DE arguably was Taylorsville's
. at 6-foot-1.5 and 245 pounds, Fihaki showed a lot of fire and aggressiveness in running through the drills. He's not the most polished player, but a college coach could do wonders with this gem in the rough.
The top offensive linemen were a bookend pair from Jordan High - 2009 prospects
. 2008 OL
Here are the other top performers from the event:
- Timpview (Provo)
- San Juan (Blanding)
- Judge Memorial
(2010) - Davis (Kaysville)
- Copper Hills
