Atlanta MVP Camp: Award Winners

McDONOUGH, Ga. — Over 400 prospects came out Sunday to attend the Atlanta MVP Camp on the Avalon Fields, earning instruction from director Chad Simmons and several other coaches.

Top Overall Performer

Shamire DeVine — 6-foot-6, 335 pounds — offensive tackle — Tri-Cities High School in East Point, Ga. — 2013

Quick note: This junior already has six BCS school offers with his favorites currently being Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt. His reaction to earning his MVP Camp award: "I need to get better."

Top Underclassman

Demarre Kitt — 6-1, 190 — wide receiver — Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga. — Class of 2014

Quick note: This sophomore continues to rack up one offer after another, reaching double figures already. He recently named a top three of Clemson, Georgia and Florida.

Top Quarterback

Alejandro Benefield - 6-2, 215 - quarterback - Lovejoy High School in Hampton, Ga. - 2013

Quick Note: Benefield led Lovejoy to the 4A state championship game in 2011. He is athletic and he spins the ball well. He is hearing from a number of schools, but none have offered yet.

Top Running Back

Dequan Daniels — 5-9, 160 — running back — Statesboro High School in Statesboro, Ga. — 2013

Quick note: This junior showed burst throughout Sunday's workout. His effort should help him get noticed as he works toward his first BCS school offer.

Top Offensive Lineman

Cameron Fraser — 6-4, 275 — offensive tackle — Central High School in Phenix City, Ala. — 2013

Quick note: Another prospect inching his way onto the BCS school radar, the junior showcased a quality blend of size and footwork to stymie several quality opponents in one-on-ones.

Top Defensive Lineman

David Johnson — 6-2, 235 — defensive end — Lithonia High School in Lithonia, Ga. — 2013

Quick note: The junior utilized his speed and technique to make quick work of several offensive linemen that were much larger in stature. Johnson lost his shirt, literally, in earning this honor and could make some noise on the next level as an outside linebacker in a 3-4. He already has SEC offers from Auburn, Mississippi State and South Carolina.

Top Defensive Back

Brendan Langley — 6-1, 186 — cornerback — Kell High School in Marietta, Ga. — 2013

Quick note: One of the more highly recruited defensive backs in the south, the junior told that Georgia leads for his services with Alabama being a close second. He has plans to visit Tennessee and the Crimson Tide this week.

Top Wide Receiver/Tight End

DeMarquis Polite-Bray — 6-0, 170 — wide receiver — Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Lithonia, Ga. — 2013

Quick note: Already with a Tennessee offer, this junior put a great set of hands on display to beat DBs. He was quick getting out of his breaks, which was a positive sign for a 17-year-old that dealt with an ankle injury his sophomore season.

Top Linebacker

Hector Stanback - 5-11, 191 - linebacker - Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Lithonia, Ga. - 2013

Quick Note: Stanback claims offers from Middle Tennessee, Tennessee-Chattanooga, UAB, and UNLV. He could be a quick linebacker or safety on the next level.
