Nike Football Training Camp came to Memphis (Tn.) this past Friday. Three Kentucky prospects who competed share their thoughts.

Mayfield linebacker Jonathan Jackson who holds offers from Western Kentucky and Arkansas State competed against some top competition. The 6-foot, 215-pound linebacker thinks he had a solid showing.

"I did well," he said. "Everyone there was really good. I feel like I perform better at events like that," he said.

Murray defensive end LaBront Scott has similar thoughts on the competition and his performance.

"(The camp) went pretty well. Those were by far the best linemen I've ever competed against," Scott said.

The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior felt like his play spoke for itself, though.

"I definitely held my own. I only got blocked one time. And I got selected to the showcase," he said.

Another player who greatly improved his stock during the event and picked up two scholarship offers soon after was Ballard tackle Joey Bloomfield.

"(Joey) purposely made the trip to the Memphis camp instead of the Midwest or Eastern locations to go against the best kids from Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee and Arkansas," said Jeff Bloomfield, Joey's father.

Bloomfield didn't fail to impress. He was able to impress the scouts on hand. Bloomfield showed his strength and aggressiveness against the higher rated prospects – never backing down and proving his point, that he is a legitimate player.

Bloomfield also added offers from Fordham and Houston after the event.
