MSL/ Houston Camp Results

The Houston MSL/TheInsiders camp made its way into the Bayou City this past weekend and the final head count had 116 athletes checking in for the one-day monster event. The unlimited exposure the kids in attendance will receive from colleges coast-to-coast had them all smiles. Special thanks to all the hard work put in by everyone who made this happen. For more on the MSL debut in Houston, Texas, please continue reading below...

The greater Houston area prospects essentially went through every single drill soon-to-be NFLers participate in at the NFL Combine. Not to mention, they're also given the NFL HRT test, muscle skeletal, a lunch, T-shirt, the whole nine yards.

NFL coaches John Hokie and Tony Oden from the Houston Texans came out to run the watches on all forty times. Speaking of forty times, Houston MSL/TheInsiders brought out a few speedsters as Washington WR Jeremy Broadway clocked a sub-4.5 forty...

"Texas has speed and I think we showed that today," said Broadway who weighed in at 5-11, 184 pounds.

The top 40 times:
Houston Washington WR Jeremy Broadway -- 4.49
Alief Elsik ATH Morris Crosby -- 4.52
Spring RB Zach Booker -- 4.56
Alief Taylor S Arist Wright -- 4.58

The top short shuttle time (20-yard shuttle) belonged to Nate Agbetola who clocked a 4.04.

Other top short shuttles:
Klein RB Jared Hawkins -- 4.05
Clearbrook DB Cory Barlow -- 4.07
Cy Falls RB Melvin Davis -- 4.07
Spring WR Daryl Jones -- 4.09

Tomball DL Kenny Frierson notched more bench-press reps (34) than anyone else...

The QBs boasted a talented group of athletes more so than passers, but Westside's Marcus Jackson (great feet) and The Woodlands' Greg Meinzer (strongest arm) are a couple to keep an eye on.

The RB/WRs boasted several studs and we will cover those guys in future reports.

As for the OL, would have to say that three really stood out with two of them hailing from Port Arthur Memorial in Justin Washington and Andrew Johnson...

Galveston Ball boasted a pair of D-I defensive ends in RaJon Henley and Dewayne Braziel. But the two most impressive may very well have been Aldine Eisenhower's Paul Freeney and Fort Bend Kempner's Chase Martin (who fits the mold of a rush linebacker).

At linebacker, Alief Taylor's Mike Brown dominated the agility drills. Dozens of college coaches are going to want this kid lining up as an LB. You might also want to remember the names of Alief Elsik's Gary Gaston (who worked out with the DBs and plays SS, but clearly looks like an impact D-I linebacker for the next level) and A&M Consolidated's Joel Huffman (another surprise LB prospect to watch who did extremely well)...

The defensive backs brought plenty of agility and even boasted two standout La Marque defenders in Korey Mangum, but a number of kids put on performances and we will release MSL reports throughout this week and next highlighting those prospects as well as others we have yet to mention.

If I had to nominate a few MVP candidates based on best combination of drills, one-on-ones, size and testing, I'd have to go with Spring WR Daryl Jones and Alief Taylor ATH Arist Wright, though the two projected D-I linebackers from Alief I.S.D (Brown and Gaston) certainly amazed/surprised...

Final Thoughts

"I was surprised by the level of professionalism shown by MSL," said Port Arthur Memorial head coach Dean Colbert. "This is the finest combine event I've ever attended."


Folks, as a combine enthusiast, I've attended events such as the U.S. Army All America, Greater Houston Area and Texas Nike combines. And without a doubt, MSL puts on an unbelievable camp. It's definitely first-class, which is one reason CEO Jim Heckman partnered with MSL Combines CEO Shawn Garrity and MSL Combines COO/Camp Director Johne Battle. The revolutionary concept of videotaping the drills markets these kids in a manner never before seen and that's a huge plus. Several greater Houston area athletes came out to put their skills on display and because of that made names for themselves. If you reside in the Southwest region and missed out on this past weekend's camp, it is not too late to sign up for the SMU Dallas MSL camps May 22nd (Saturday) and May 23rd (Sunday).

For more information on the MSL/TheInsiders combines, go to or simply click here. Kids planning on attending the May 22nd or 23rd SMU Dallas camps, contact Stacey Dean via his email address which is, if you have any difficulties registering.

You MUST pre-register or you will not be able to participate. There will be no last-minute walk-ups. If you're not yet signed up, you're missing out on the most realistic NFL Combine-like event, including the NFL HRT test (NFL aptitude/personality test) and muscle skeletal soon-to-be NFLers take, not to mention every drill the NFL Combine puts on and perhaps the most exciting aspect -- position-specific instruction via former/current NFL coaches and/or players. Are you ready to take YOUR game to the next level?
