Second Session Standouts

Session 2 at the Bobby Bowden football camp started yesturday. With close to 400 kids expected throughout, one the hardest thing is to watch every kid. Here are some thoughts about some of the kids who stood out on Day 1 of the second session.

Ryan Baker, a linebacker from Blounstown, FL, is a prospect that is put together very well. While he plays safety in high school, a move to linebacker is almost certain. If he stayed at linebacker there would be a possibility to end up with an FSU offer. With the amount of good linebackers left on the board, Baker may not receive an offer and some other BCS type team will get a very good prospect. This kid's versatility sticks out the most.

Toshman Stevens, a DE prospect from Crescent City, FL, was at the camp. He has a great frame 6'5 210 pounds. The question is can he put on the weight to be a star DE at the next level. If Keith Wells commits to FSU soon the Noles could wait for guys like Corey Liuget to pull the trigger. Stevens is a kid to keep an eye on.

Dontae Washington (right), a 2009 athlete from DeMatha in Maryland, is a kid that did very well at the FSU camp. He is a kid to keep an eye on. Washington is built like a mack truck. He is a bigger version of Leon Washington. Remember his name as a potential running back candidate in 2008.

Jared Haggins, a receiver from Lakeland, is another one to really keep an eye on. To think that he is only a 10th grader and is already standing out should tell you all you need to know about Haggins. Lakeland will not go away if they keep retooling with prospects like this.

Everett Dawkins (left), the South Carolina standout defensive end from Byrnes High, is another kid that really stood out. He has great short area burst and is put together real well. Dawkins measured in around 6'2 235. Many think that he could make one heck of a DE at the Division 1 level. The recruiting board for FSU just got bigger with this addition. It is expected that Dawkins walks away with an offer.
