Miami NFTC: Underclassmen

There were a handful of standout underclassmen at the Miami Nike Football Training Camp.

Sam Bruce (Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas)
Bruce's game is made for the camp circuit as he is impossible to cover in space and will catch everything thrown his way. What Bruce lacks in height, he makes up for with crisp routes and a competitive desire to win every rep. He will likely end up in the slot at the next level and should be more than ready from day one.

Robert Burns (Miami Gulliver Prep)
Of all the elite prospects and athletes in attendance in Miami it was this freshman that had the highest SPARQ rating (118.26). Burns, 5-foot-11, 210-pounds, ran a laser 4.58 forty and had a short shuttle of 4.56. He also threw the power ball 41-feet and had a 39'3" vertical jump.

Tyler Byrd (Naples, Fla.)
Byrd is a big cornerback prospect with plenty of speed. This 2016 standout has already committed to the Gators. He did get beat a time of two during one on ones but he also made some nice plays, showing the ability to really drive on the ball and break up passes.

Tyler Centio (Royal Palm Beach, Fla.)
This freshman quarterback is a name to keep an eye on. He has a smooth delivery and spins the ball nicely. Centio has plenty of time to get bigger and stronger for the position. He's definitely one to watch.

Dionte Mullins (Miami Gulliver Prep)
Another prospect with a couple of years remaining, Mullins made two spectacular catches that were sensational and the best of the day. He has the frame to add considerable weight down the road. Mullins does all the little things at a high level and we were impressed with competitiveness and uncanny ball skills.

Dredrick Snelson (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage)
A 2016 wideout with offers and it showed why. The receiver group was very strong, but Snelson stood out in his own way. He looks like a running back on the hoof and he caught the ball in traffic and showed good quickness in space. He may be recruited to play slot receiver on the next level.

Binjimin Victor (Oakland Park, Fla./Northeast)
A sophomore with good size and length. He has long arms, he really attacked the ball well, and he is fluid in his routes. He went up to get the ball multiple times and showed he could be one of the top 2016 prospects in the state.

Mark Walton (Miami Booker T. Washington)
The Miami commitment was trying to re-classify to the 2015 class, but it appears as if South Florida football fans will have an opportunity to watch this dynamic athlete for another two years. Walton continues to add size and has all the physical tools to be special. He should get more opportunity to shine in pads next year. Walton showed out today and was impressive in the one on one drills, displaying a nasty jump cut and a burst all to his own.

Cedrick Wright (Miami Gulliver Prep)
Wright has pretty good height and a thick build as a safety. He shows range from the back end and is solid in coverage. Wright already holds some big offers.

Malek Young (Coconut Creek, Fla.)
Young had a very good day. He's a speedy cornerback that can flip his hips and run with anyone. He has very good short area quickness and change of direction. Hoggins can drive to the football. He's just small but he can play.
