He did not compete in the one-on-one portion of the event but Destrahan (La.) High put up the top Sparq time in the initial testing on the day posting a 147.60. So look for him to make a huge impact going forward in the 7-on-7 competition.
Calvin Ridley, a 6-foot-1, 169-pounder from Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch is rated as a high four-star at the cornerback position, but I think it is safe to put him in to the athlete category because on day one he was the top wide receiver in the one-on-one competitions. He is very explosive in and out of his breaks, very quick and had the play of the day with a one-handed catch over the top of a defender. Alabama is getting a good one.
Terry Godwin a, 6-foot-0, 170-pounder from Hogansville (Ga.) Callaway is another prospect that the coaching staff at Georgia – the school where he has committed – will be fighting over. He could be an excellent receiver or corner on the next level. The offensive coordinator may get first dibs, because that is where they have recruited him and that is the position that he stood out. He is very fluid and is able to work the short and intermediate routes very well.
Trent Irwin a 6-foot-2, 185-pounder from Newhall (Cali.) Hart really turned it on during the one-on-ones. Using his size to his advantage but also running nice routes.
Lawrence Cager, a 6-foot-5, 189-pounder from Baltimore (Md.) Calvert Hall is not as quick as some of the other receiver, but his size is something that they do not possess. He makes great adjustments to the ball while it is in the air, something else that you just can’t coach.
He had a couple of drops but one player show was the lightning bug of the group was Mississippi State commitment Deddrick Thomas, a 5-foot-10, 170-pounder from Memphis (Tenn.) Central stayed off of jams well and finished plays better than almost every other wideout in attendance with strong body control and hands.
