The linebacker prospects who attended the FoxSports/ Southeast Elite Camp in Tuscaloosa Sunday displayed a vast amount of agility, speed and effort. As a group, this was one of the more impressive units top to bottom in the camp. We take a look at several of the standouts who garnered a lot of attention throughout the day.

Jake Holland – Holland got after it throughout both the drills and competitions. A prototypical inside linebacker, Holland has tremendous footwork and agility. He's a leader on the football field both verbally and physically. He is one of the more physically advanced linebacker prospects in the state. He'll be able to take on FB/OL blocks and shed them at will with his broad shoulders and low center of gravity. Physical specimen, I see him as a 10-13 tackle per game guy in the middle. He has the ability to move outside. Auburn commitment.

Jawara White – Charles Henderson High School has had a good one in White for many years. Known as "Rah Rah" to teammates and coaches, White was one of the more athletic linebacker prospects in the camp. He showed the ability to read quarterbacks, drop back in coverage quickly, and make plays in open field. White has quick hips and a sound ability to play both the run and the pass. He’s also another physical type linebacker who plays with a lot of passion.

Fred Harvey – Harvey is not tall in stature, but he makes up for it with tremendous effort and a great motor. He has a lot of straight line speed, and an ability to close to the football very well. He’s a hard worker, and attacks all drills with relentless aggression. Has a "nasty" demeanor and a tremendous amount of intensity.

C.J. Mosley - Very rangy linebacker who seems versatile enough to play Mike, Sam or Will linebacker. He has good speed and plays with a lot of poise. He's combine polished and physically advanced. Overall he's just a long, athletic linebacker who's able to make a lot of plays with his feet.

Nigel Terrell – Terrell physically looks like he is already playing division one football. He plays the linebacker position with a lot of poise. He has a very developed upper body, and he also utilizes some astounding footwork. Terrell plays alongside Holland at Pelham and is a physical terror at the linebacker position.

Will Matthews coaches football at the high school level and has extensive experience working college camps and combines across the region. He has worked under the tutelage of many elite college coaches learning the many techniques of evaluating high school prospects.
