At the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, Vanderbilt commit Latevius Rayford discusses his experience…
Semper Fi: Day 1, East's Top 5 Offense
Each day the FOXSportsNEXT team will look at the top five offensive players from the day at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl practices, and coming out of Monday these are the ones who stood out on the offensive side. Will Fuller, WR, Roman Catholic High (Philadelphia) The Notre Dame commit was sensational. He did drop one pass, but that is forgiven because he caught everything else. He went up and snatched balls that were high, flew out of breaks and outran his cover guy in man-to-man coverage regularly. He is a stellar route runner, and even on the first day or working with new quarterbacks, he looked at ease as he was constantly open. Arshad Jackson, TE, Lovejoy (Ga.) High The 6-6, 235-pound tight end, who is considering Florida State, Ole Miss and Pittsburgh, delivered the hit of the day, taking a short pass and running right through a linebacker that tried to stop him in the open field. Jackson also showed off his versatility by getting behind the defense a few plays later and pulling in a nice catch on seam route. Several times after catching the ball, Jackson's strength allowed him to move his defender out of the way and continue running. Mike McGlinchey, OT, William Penn Charter (Philadelphia) McGlinchey, a Notre Dame commit, quickly emerged as the most polished offensive lineman of the group during one-on-one drills. At 6-7, 275 pounds with good athleticism and better than expected flexibility, Glinchey frustrated the group of defensive ends all practice. He used his length to keep defenders from going wide and he showed a very good base when players tried to bull rush him. Eddie Printz, QB, Lassier High (Marietta, Ga.) Printz, who is committed to Missouri, looked very good throwing against air in early drills. He had a good arm strength and was on target. He hit receivers out of breaks and led them well. He also threw several deep balls well during 1-on-1 drills against the defensive backs, and didn't force passes during the 11-on-11 sessions. Latevius Rayford, WR, Central High (Memphis, Tenn.) Whether running short passes or getting down the field, Rayford was always making great catches. The Vanderbilt commit showed very good hands and moved out of his breaks well. He was able to gain separation rather easily.
