A little more action highlighted day two at the Under Armour All-America game in Orlando. Here are five from Team White and Team Black who've impressed.
Craig Roh, a defensive end from Chaparral High School in Arizona, showed a great motor all morning long. The 6'5, 220 pound Michigan commit never quits and has a great lean frame. Long arms are an added bonus. Look for him to make a big impact down the road for Michigan as he is they type to excel after a few years in the weight room.
Another player on the white squad who impressed was Xavier Su'a-Filo. He was the most impressive of the offensive lineman both in the drills and and in scrimmage action. Su'a-filo has great size and feet. He has a little finesse to his game and overall his technique is top notch.
Gary Brown, a UF commit, is a dominating inside presence who is tough to handle because of his great athleticism. An explosive first step coupled with raw strength were both on display today. Brown still possesses some significant upside as he has room to fill out and a year or two in a college weight training program should make him an All-American type DT down the road. Brown dominated the one-on-one's.
Craig Loston from Texas showed versatility today as he played both safety and corner. He continued to improve as the day went on. Loston has the quick hips that is coveted in defensive backs and showed great physicality in bump and run type coverage.
Jelani Jenkins shows a rare blend of speed and quickness for a linebacker. Some other linebacker's are closer to being finished products, but Jenkins upside is tantalizing. Projected at weak side linebacker, his coverage skills should be amongst the best in the country.
Trent Richardson, a running back from Pensacola, FL who is committed to Alabama, has the prototype blend of size and speed. At 220 pounds he has run a 10.7 100 meters while displaying great burst and some wiggle. He caught the ball well out of the backfield today and may be able to contribute from day one next year.
Greg Reid, a UF commit from Georgia, is small in stature, but plays big on the field. His exceptional quickness and natural play-making skills shined this morning as wide receiver's found it tough to get separation. He should see some return duties as well. Reid's quick hips and make up speed should make him a factor down the road.
Prince Kent had a better day two than day one. The Georgian is committed to Miami and has a tremendous physical package. He has plus height for a DB and long arms. He shows good speed with adequate quickness. He made more than one pass break-up and can be a physical presence down the road. He showed enough to warrant a look at cornerback, the easy projection is to safety.
Dyron Dye was the most active of the defensive linemen on the Black squad today. The local product from nearby Sanford has a game changing first step. Dye has shown a good motor, but needs to work on adding some moves to his repertoire. He flashes the ability to use his length and can just flat get after the quarterback.
Duron Carter has shown why he is the most complete wide receiver at this game. The Ohio State commit and native of Ft. Lauderdale simply is as refined of young wide receiver as I have seen in years. He has a multitude of moves at the line of scrimmage, uses his hands, and has shown great route running ability all week. He had an easy drop today, but otherwise has shown the great hands he is known for.
