R.A.S. Camp Top Performers

Saturday was a great day at the first Bedrock Youth Academy "Redefining Athletic Standards" camp on the campus of Trine University in Angola, Indiana. The following prospects stood out earning top honors during the day from those who coached them.

Headlined by national recruit Jaylon Smith, several players left Saturday's first R.A.S. Camp impressing camp coaches and members of the media.

The following players provided outstanding performances during the day.


Demetrius Cooper – Chicago (IL) Julian HS

Cooper impressed coaches with his work ethic and tied Karl Roesler during the lineman challenge. While raw in technique, Cooper is a player with a bright future who has a long frame and the ability to add weight without giving up his athletic ability.


Jamitreus Crokham – Fisher (IN) Hamilton Southeastern HS

Crokham didn't disappoint as he showed why some have him pegged as the top prospect out of the Hoosier state in the 2014 class. Great physical size, the question now will be what position he'll play at the college level.


Jeffrey Jones – Minneapolis (MN) Washburn HS

Like Crokham, Jones is a young player who impressed those in attendance and showed why he's already holding a couple scholarship offers. Blessed with great athletic skill, Jones still has room to fill out and become one of the top running backs in the 2014 class. When all was said and done Saturday, Jones walked away with overall MVP honors as voted upon by the coaches.


Isaac Griffith – Ft. Wayne (IN) Homestead HS

Griffith is one of those players who will surprise those not familure with his ability. A solid route runner, Griffith is a complete receiver showing above average hands catching the routine balls while also making a big play or two along the way.


Tyvel Jemison – Ft. Wayne (IN) Bishop Luers HS

Jemison impressed at the Adidas Invitational back in April and followed up with a top performance at the R.A.S. event on Saturday. June will be a huge month for the Fort Wayne native as he hits the camp circuit.


Jared Murphy – Columbia City (IN) HS

Don't let the boyish looks fool you when looking at Murphy as a prospect. Despite his physical size, Murphy uses great quickness and sure hands to beat top defensive backs. A super confident player, Murphy walked away with two small program offers (Saint Francis – Tiffin) and picked up an offer from Eastern Illinois on Monday.


Kierre Rhoads - Minneapolis (MN) St. Paul Johnson HS

The month of June could be big for Rhoads as he hits the camp circuit and shows the skills to cover with the best of them. Not afraid to mix it up, Rhoads breaks on the ball well and using solid hip turns and a physical style to give receivers fits.


Jaylon Smith – Ft. Wayne (IN) Bishop Luers HS

Star power followed Smith to every drill and throughout the day as he again challenged others around him to take their game to another level. All eyes were on him as talked swirled about his upcoming pledge to Notre Dame, but all Smith did was go out compete and leave nothing on the table.


Reggie Spearman – Chicago (IL) Simeon HS

It is never a surprise to find a top player out of Simeon High School and Spearman didn't disappoint with his overall performance on Saturday as he showed well during drills going between defensive line and linebacker drills. While solid in the open field, his future could be as a rush end as he continues to mature.


Cory Winfield – St. Louis (MO) Riverview HS

Another receiver who had a solid day was Winfield who used his athletic ability to go up and snag balls out of the air and used his quickness to gain separation causing problems for defensive backs all day long.
