The Southeast has long been known for having players that can run. While most regions have pretty fast skill players, they don’t always have big men that can move. This is not the case in this particular area and there will be an abundance of athletic DL in attendance at the Scout.Com Elite 150 Camp tomorrow at Auburn. Come inside as we preview some of the DL planning to attend.

Abry Jones—Northside Warner Robins (GA) 6’4 250

Quite possibly the most dominant DL in the state of GA, one could make an argument for a top ranking in the entire southeast. A huge DE who plays with great leverage and has excellent lateral mobility, Jones is an absolute terror along the LOS. He is also a high-motor guy and makes a lot of plays in pursuit as well. Look for a huge day from the UGA commit.

Brandon Putnam

Brandon Putnam—Sandy Creek (GA) 6’2.5 231

A bit under the radar, Putnam sees the value in the Elite 150 Camp and how it affords him the opportunity to make.

“I’m ready to get out there and compete against the best. I know this will make me a better DE”

Putnam currently holds an offer from Duke and hopes he garners more attention at the event.

“I definitely want to be seen.”

Eric McDaniel

Eric McDaniel—Calhoun (GA) 6’3 297

A very good DL who has a unique blend of size and agility, his almost cat-like body control makes him fun to watch. Currently holding no offers, look for that to change soon. McDaniel hopes to have a good showing at the camp and we have no doubts that he will.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to compete with and against the best. I feel pretty confident that I will have a good day.”

McDaniel has just recently tweaked one his hamstrings at track practice but in the true warrior spirit that he possesses, he is still going to attend the camp and give his best effort.

Darrius McMullin—Spain Park (AL) 6’2 275

Possessing an unbelievable motor, McMullin plays the game fast and hard. He uses his hands well and is a sound technician but what makes this AL standout so impressive is his sideline-to-sideline motor. He is excitable and does not take plays off. UCF has currently offered and a solid showing at camp will most certainly better his situation.

“I’m very excited about the camp because I feel like I can compete with 3 + 4 star players. I just don’t get as much recognition as they do.”

All of that will change when McMullin has a standout performance at Scout’s camp.

William Ming—Athens (AL) 6’4 250

One of the top two-way standouts from the state of AL stacks up very well in a talented field. Ming is long and is one of the most athletic DEs in the talent pool. He projects as a DE or a TE at the next level and will have the chance to work out at both positions while at the camp.

Ming already holds several big-time offers but look for his stock to rise after competing against some of the best athletes in the nation.
