Barton Combine Top 5

FoxSportsNext takes a look at five prospects who stood out from the Barton Football Combine at Issaquah (Wash.) High this weekend…

The Barton Football Camp at Issaquah (Wash.) High this weekend was filled with 2013-2015 prospects from the state of Oregon and Washington. While there were a ton of talented players in attendance, we'll take a look at the five that stood out the most…

WR Nic Sblendorio (2013) Skyline HS, WA
Someone offer him already. Sblendorio is quickly becoming one of my favorite prospects in the 2013 class. He has dominated every camp, combine or 7on7 I have seen him at. Sblendorio works mainly at wide receiver and along with above average hands, he is the best route runner I have seen this year. Sblendorio ran the fastest 40 time at the combine and also has a chance to be recruited as a safety.

CB Reshon Watson (2013) Bothell HS, WA
Watson is a raw talent. He has extremely long limbs and while he plays corner now, I see him growing into a safety. Watson is physical and has the ability to jam receivers at the line. I think he has all of the physical tools to play at an FBS program and should see recruiting attention pick up this fall.

LB Michael Cummings (2013) Meadowdale HS, WA
Cummings was the surprise of the weekend for me. He ran extremely well in the 40, putting up a time in the late four second range, which was rare with the laser timer and wet conditions. Cummings has definitely spent some time in the weight room and has filled out his entire 6'0" 230lbs frame. Height will be an issue for Cummings and may limit some of the top tier programs from pursuing him.

WR Tanner Shipley (2013) Wilsoville HS, OR
Shipley received some great news when he returned home from the combine as Wyoming offered. Shipley is a lanky receiver that has enough size and speed to threaten a defense in multiple ways. Shipley isn't a burner but can get behind the defense. I think he will work best as a possession receiver, using his size and route running to get open.

CB Kahlil Dawson (2013) Graham-Kapowsin HS, WA
Dawson worked out with the receivers Sunday, which I think is his secondary position. Even still he showed flashes of the athlete that is a special teams threat and lock down corner in high school. Dawson holds a Wyoming offer and indicated that he could make a decision by the end of the summer if other programs don't get into the mix.

Top Underclassman: QB Ross Bowers (2015) Bothell HS, WA
Bowers has a chance to be the next big quarterback out of the state of Washington. Bowers will need to add weight over the next few years, but already possesses the arm strength he will need to play at the next level. The ball looks natural coming out of his hand, showing great accuracy and spiral. Bowers split time at quarterback for Bothell as a freshman and will be the full time starter this fall. Recruiting fans, keep an eye on this one.
