Semper Fi: Day Two East Top 5 Defense

IRVINE, Calif -- A look at the defensive standouts from day two at the Semper Fi All-American Bowl. It was another strong day for the defensive line.

DE Keyon Brown
School: Hardee Senior HS (Wauchula, Fla.)
Height: 6-3
Weight: 240
Rank (Pos): #163 (DE #19)
Committed: Georgia
Keyon Brown was dominate again. It did not matter who was in front of the 6-foot-3, 240-pound defensive end. His tremendous combination of speed and power was too much for any offensive tackle to handle. In two days, he has not lost a one-on-one matchup.

DT Ricky Walker
School: Bethel HS (Hampton, Va.)
Height: 6-2
Weight: 275
Rank (Pos): #NR (DT #38)
Committed: Virginia Tech
Ricky Walker was very impressive for the second day in a row. The 6-2, 275-pound Walker's quick hands, explosive first step and non-stop motor allowed him overwhelm anyone who challenged him.

DT Poona Ford
School: Hilton Head HS (Hilton Head Island, S.C.)
Height: 6-0
Weight: 275
Rank (Pos): #NR (DT #24)
Committed: Louisville
Poona Ford was not as dominate as he was on day one, but he was still very, very good. His leverage and raw strength are things that cannot be taught. Once he gets engaged with an offensive lineman, the 6-foot, 290-pound Ford simply overpowers his opponent. Even when he is double-teamed, Ford has the ability to consistently disrupt plays.

LB Connor Strachan
School: St. Sebastian's School (Needham, Mass.)
Height: 6-1
Weight: 230
Rank (Pos): #NR (MLB #15)
Committed: Boston College
Connor Strachan was all over the field on Thursday. The 6-1, 230-pound Strachan is a hard-nosed player with great instincts. He plays sideline-to-sideline and takes good angles when pursuing the football. Physically, he is college-ready right now, so look for him to get on the field early in his college career.

DE Dewayne Hendrix
School: O'Fallon HS (O'Fallon, Ill.)
Height: 6-4
Weight: 250
Rank (Pos): #149 (DE #16)
Committed: Tennessee
Dewayne Hendrix is not as flashy as some of the other defensive lineman, but he is very effective. The 6-4, 250-pound defensive end showed good strength and quickness. He does a nice job of playing fast, but under control and puts himself in position to make plays.
