Jimbo Fisher Camp: Day 2 Top Performers

The second day of the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp was on Thursday on the campus of Florida State University and it was loaded with top end talent. Here is a look at some of the top performers from both the morning and afternoon session.

Abdul Bello – 2015 OT – Montverde (Fla.) Montverde Academy
Hasn’t even played a full season of football yet, but if you are drawing up a prototypical tackle on the hoof, then Bello is your guy. He showed a flat back in his stance, he can fire off the ball, but he still has a way to go with his overall technique. So much upside as he develops.

Jacob Eason – 2016 QB – Lake Stevens (Wa.)
This is a kid that you can watch throw three or four balls and offer on the spot. He has the size, he should good feet in the drills, and his arm spoke for itself. He really showed why he has the offers that he has on Thursday.

Deondre Francois – 2015 QB – Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy
Another strong showing for the Scout 300 signal caller. The ball just flies out his hand and he showed Sanders and Fisher that on Thursday. He has a short and high release with great spin. A quarterback that continues to improve.

Malik Henry - 2016 QB- Westlake Village (Ca.) Westlake
The second west coast QB and rising junior to travel across the country to FSU, Henry may have been the most athletic quarterback on the field today. He was very accurate and also threw a fantastic deep ball. He displayed good touch and was able to drop the ball in right over the shoulder of the receiver on a few go routes. Made excellent decisions with the football.

D.J. Matthews – 2017 WR – Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast
Smooth is the best way to describe Matthews. Showed a great burst in and out of his cuts, he receives the ball naturally, and he is a kid who could be pursued as a slot receiver or a corner. He committed to FSU this afternoon.

Jarred McGahee - 2015 DT - Coral Gables (Fla.) Coral Gables
Undersized at 6-0, McGahee was dominant in 1on1 drills this afternoon consistently beating his man on his way to the QB. Showed a lot of game with a variety of pass rushing moves. Carries his 275 pounds well and has plenty of room to get bigger.

Jalen Merrick – 2015 OG – New Smyrna (Fla.) New Smyrna
A big body who held his own at tackle, but is a much better fit at guard. He won reps at each position during the one-on-one session. Very light on his feet for a big man with so much upside.

Dylan Moses - 2017 RB - Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab
This young athlete has a very bright future. Outstanding size and athleticism plus explosiveness. The LSU verbal should be among the most coveted prospects in the nation and could be a factor on either side of the football. Has a great frame to add weight.

Stewart Reese – 2016 OG – Fort Pierce (Fla.) Central
A big body who was arguably the top offensive line performer in the one-on-one session. He stoned multiple defensive linemen and he continued to get a lot of love from Trickett. A true inside lineman with solid feet and nice punch.

Janarius Robinson – 2016 DE – Panama City (Fla.) Bay
Arguably the top performer in the morning session. He looked great before the camp started, then performed to his looks during. He is athletic, he showed strong hands in drills, and was dominant in the one-on-one session.

Fermin Silva- 2015 DE/OLB - Miami (Fl.) Miami Central
Silva is a bit of a tweener for FSU at 6-foot-2, 225, but he worked out with his hand down and was an explosive pass rusher this afternoon. Tough as nails, he definitely helped his stock today, but may need to learn to play in space.

Chidi Valentine-Ekeke – 2016 OT – Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat Cath.
Still raw at tackle, but he has all the tools you look for. Was up and down in the one-on-ones as he learned on the fly from Trickett, but he flashes five-star ability at times. Moves very well, skinny ankles, great bender, and so much upside.

Cedric Wood – 2016 DT – Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby
The top interior defensive lineman at this camp. Not super explosive, but showed good lateral movement and he won more reps than he lost in the one-on-one session. A true three-technique who will hold his ground and be strong against the run.
