Norland RB Duke Johnson was ready to compete. His 4.49 40 and 34'' vertical attest to the explosiveness he shows on the field. He dominated in the competition portion as well. Columbus's Deon Bush is receiving offers daily because of his athletic package. At 6'0.5, 177 the DB ran a 4.44 40, had a 34'' vertical, and a 7.13 3-Cone. Those are elite tools to work with as a potential CB.
STA's Jelani Hamilton was 6'4 and over 240 pounds. He showed rare explosiveness for a jumbo athlete whose best days are clearly a few years out. It is easy to see why he is being heavily recruited.
Dwyer's Pat Miller continues to add weight and shows a real mean streak in 1on1's. He physically manhandled Hamilton on one play. He is on his way to being one of the elite OTs in the country. At over 6'5 and 260 he ran a 5.11. Boyd Anderson's Kameron Davis was 6'4, 284 and is built the right way. He needs to work on his technique, but there are skills here. He will probably play inside at the next level.
Homestead's Herbert Waters, Pedro Sibiea, Antwan Jones, and James Burgess confirmed why they are getting BCS interest right now. Waters is a fluid athlete that ran a 4.51 with a 7.01 3-Cone. He played everywhere in 2010, but should be a WR at the next level. Sibiea checked in at just under 6'3, 260 and put up solid numbers. He has terrific athleticism for a big guy and could play inside or out down the road. His 4.87 40 really stands out amongst the big athletes. Jones has great coverage skills. LB James Burgess showed more speed than he has in the past with a 4.64. He has been ultra productive the past two seasons.
Dunbar DT Christian Brown checked in 6'2, 280 and dominated in 1on1's. He has the quickness and athleticism that can't be taught. Brown was also the second strongest at the combine.
South Dade's Torry Clayton has not attracted the attention he deserves, today's performance will probably change that for good. Clayton ran a 4.52 at 5'8, 194 and his numbers across the board were better than expected. He should start seeing BCS offers come his way. Stranahan's Tim Taylor is a lighter than Clayton, but put up similar numbers. He was the offense last season.
There are few players where a 4.51 would be disappointing, but it is for Daniel Gray. He has ran faster and possesses legit track speed. However Gray was a stand-out in coverage and helped his stock with his overall performance. STA's Dami Ayoola will play BCS football, he does every thing at a high level, and was very productive as a junior. Cypress Bay's Danny Isidora is massive at 6'3, 336 and he has good feet and athleticism. He will get nothing but better in the future.
Seminole Ridge RB Gary Holmes had the fastest 40 time at 4.39 and a terrific 3-Cone. He is about 5'8, but with a thick build. That type of speed attracts attention. Another under-sized blazer from Palm Beach County was WR Tremane McCullough who clocked a 4.45. He put that speed on displays with ball skills in the 1on1's.
New Names on the Radar
Vero Beach DE Dwayne Hoilett has a unique package. He checked in over 6'2 and 207 pounds and ran a 4.67 with elite numbers: 4.5 shuttle, 33'' vertical, 9'9'' broad jump, and 7.05 3-Cone. He certainly has the athleticism for OLB.
We loved Coral Reef's Vernon Davis's game on the field in 2010 and he backed it up Sunday. The 5'9, 163 CB ran a 4.61 with a 4.28 shuttle.
STA's Joseph McClary had outstanding numbers across the board, however he is on the short side at just under 5'7 right now. Hollywood Hills Jean-Marc Charles is about 6'2, 250 and will be a player to watch. He is explosive and appears to have plenty of untapped potential.
Jupiter Christian QB Kedric Bostic has an intriguing package. The 6'2, 180 pounder ran a 4.63, had a 30'' vertical, and 9'4'' broad jump.
A Look to the Future
Running Back Sony Michel might have been the best athlete on the field and he is just a freshmen. Nothing can be said that has not already been, we will patiently wait another two years before things really kick into high gear for him. Wide Receiver Alex Montgomery possesses elite size and athleticism. He should establish himself as one of the top WRs in South Florida.
Hillsborough DE Jordan Sherit put on a clinic at 6'3, 221, he looks to have great upside. OT Sandley Jean-Felix and ATH Zakary Zerquera are players to keep an eye on. Jean-Felix is built perfect with a wide body, but he is still very raw. Zerqeura was consistently great all afternoon.
