Tallahassee Combine Recap

Mike Bakas held a recruiting combine in Tallahassee over the weekend and nearly 150 players from around the area worked out.

The most impressive prospect at the event was Arnold's Eddie Williams. At 6-3 and 199, Williams tested extremely well and then was excellent during 1 on 1 drills. He's off the charts athletically and will give Alabama one of the state's premier overall prospects.

Lincoln's Ronald Butler was the top quarterback at the event. A solid athlete, Butler has a live arm and looked very smooth during 1 on 1 drills. He led his team to the state championship in 2010 and will be a major college prospect for the 2012 class.

Arnold brought a pair of running backs -- Andre Allen and Jamari Hughes -- who were very impressive. Hughes is a little faster but Allen has a little more shake. They both showed why they're major college prospects for the 2012 class. Navarre's Dwayne Carter ran for over 1,000 yards and many touchdowns last season and he looked very good again at this event.

The most impressive wide receiver appeared to be Lincoln's Raph Andrades, who helped lead his team to the 4A state title. An All Big Bend pick last season, Andrades looks like a major BCS prospect.

Godby's Laith Harlow was the top tight end and he looks like he'll be one of the best in the state. He had a great performance during 1 on 1 drills and you can see why he has the offers he does.

Crestview's Earl Reed was the top lineman at the event. He won the strongest man award and then won most of his 1 on 1 drills. He's a name to keep an eye on.

The most loaded position at the event was defensive back. Eddie Williams (Alabama commitment) was the most athletic kid there and one of the most athletic kids we've seen during the entire combine series. Travis Blanks was outstanding during 1 on 1 drills. He looks like an elite prospect who can play anywhere in America. Godby's T.J. Davis is very athletic and plays with great instincts. You can see why he has so many early offers. Ladarion Young and Joseph Hunter were two kids who came from Pensacola and looked like BCS-caliber prospects. Lincoln's Marcus Wilson looked like a premier safety prospect.
