Dre Kirkpatrick, a 6-2, 180-pounder from Gadsden City High School, drilled with and competed against talented players from six states at the event.
Kirkpatrick put on an impressive show during the agility drills and the one-on-one passing section of the camp. Receivers were hard pressed to catch a pass with Kirkpatrick defending them.
"Overall I think the camp went pretty good," the high school junior says. "I was off and on, kind of rusty. I grade myself about midway because I could have done better."
Even with a "midway" performance, he still notes competing against outstanding high school players is an important part of preparation for his senior season.
"It is good exposure," Kirkpatrick says. "It's good to be going against top athletes in the state and around the country and just coming up to compete."
Kirkpatrick says he isn't ready yet to name a favorite college or even a short list of programs he is favoring, but it isn't because of a lack of attention. "About 30 or 40 schools have offered me so far," he says.
