ORLANDO, Fla. - Find out who impressed Scout enough at the NIKE Football Training Camp on Sunday to see their stock rise right here.

Over 200 athletes took the fields at Disney's Wide World of Sports on Sunday and many had good performances. Find out who stood out to Scout enough to see their stock rise here:

Johnell Barnes - CB - 6-0/170 - Ft. Myers, Fla.-Dunbar
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 30 CB
What Stood Out: Scout likes Barnes more potentially as a corner, but he worked out at receiver Sunday. He showed very quick feet, a burst out of his breaks, and the ability to get separation.
Recruiting Notes: Connecticut, Duke, Northwestern, and a couple others have offered.

Caleb Brantley - DT - 6-3/302 - Crescent City, Fla.-Crescent City
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 28 DT/No. 252 Overall
What Stood Out: His quickness off the ball was one of the things that caught Scout's attention. He fires off the ball, he keeps his hands active, and his rip move proved to be something tough for most to handle.
Recruiting Notes: Committed to Florida

Kurt Benkurt - QB - 6-3/205 - Cape Coral,Fla.-Island Coast
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 50 QB
What Stood Out: Benkert was on target at this camp. He showed flashes of his ability at IMG on day two and he carried that over to Sunday. He throws a very catchable ball, he showed nice touch, and he was as accurate as anyone.
Recruiting Notes: South Florida and Western Kentucky have offered.

Ira Denson - OG - 6-4/320 - Madison, Fla.-Madison County
Current Ranking on Scout: NR
What Stood Out: There was not a more impressive performance than Denson's on Sunday. He was very strong at the point of attack, he dominated the one-on-one portion of the camp, and he showed good bend and hands.
Recruiting Notes: Florida International and Western Kentucky have offered.

Leon McQuay - S - 6-1/185 - Seffner, Fla.-Armwood
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 8 S/No. 96 Overall
What Stood Out: This four-star safety had a very good day all around. He showed great ball skills, good speed to the ball, and great instincts in the secondary. He is a long safety with great range and got his hands on a lot of passes on Sunday.
Recruiting Notes: Florida, Notre Dame, Stanford, USC, and Vanderbilt are his top five.

Quinton Powell - OLB - 6-2/200 - Daytona Beach, Fla.-Mainland
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 25 OLB/No. 299 Overall
What Stood Out: Athleticism and length stood out early at this event when talking Powell. He moved his feet well in the drills, he showed good leadership, and he has the frame that can add at least 20 pounds of good weight. He was solid in coverage at this camp as well.
Recruiting Notes: Committed to Florida

Kyle Shafenacker - OG - 6-4/280 - Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-St. Thomas Aquinas
Current Ranking on Scout: NR
What Stood Out: Not many offensive linemen were better in the technique department that Schafenacker. He set his feet, he didn't lunge at defensive linemen, and he showed great strength and balance.
Recruiting Notes: SMU and South Carolian have offered.

Kyle Shortridge - DT - 6-3/275 - Loxahatchee, Fla.-Seminole Ridge
Current Ranking on Scout: NR
What Stood Out: He was very quick off the ball. He started off low, he has a quick first step, and he showed a number of moves. He took in coaching and he responded with a great day.
Recruiting Notes: Illinois, Louisville, Minnesota, South Florida, and West Virginia have offered.

Demarcus Walker - DE - 6-4/276 - Jacksonville, Fla.-Sandalwood
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 18 DE/No. 206 Overall
What Stood Out: This versatile defensive line worked some at end and tackle during the one-on-one session and he was equally effective at both. He has gained some good weight and he carries it very well. He has a good first step off the ball and he will be an end in a 3-4 scheme and a tackle in a 4-3 scheme.
Recruiting Notes: Plans to commit on May 18 and Alabama and Florida are thought to be major contenders.

Dominic Walker - WR - 6-2/190 - Orlando, Fla.-Evans
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 93 WR
What Stood Out: Walker is a physically impressive wideout. He may not be a blazer, but he is fast enough and he showed very strong hands and good body control Saturday. He is also a strong wideout that is tough to stop off the line.
Recruiting Notes: Florida, Louisville, South Carolina, and others have offered.

Asiantii Woulard - QB - 6-4/200 - Winter Park, Fla.-Winter Park
Current Ranking on Scout: No. 37 QB
What Stood Out: Woulard was sharp again. Scout saw him in Bradenton at IMG 7v7 and he impressed there, he impressed again in Orlando. He has a very strong arm, he spins it well, and his ceiling is very high.
Recruiting Notes: Was committed to South Florida, but recently backed off. Bulls still high on his list.
