Here Are the Five Offensive Players That Really Won Scout Over at the Opening Miami Regional

DAVIE, Fla. -- Nearly 300 prospects took the field for the Opening Miami Regional this past weekend, and Scout takes a look at the five offensive players that really soaked up our attention from start to finish.

Top Five Offense (Alphabetical Order)

Kevin Austin, 2018 Scout 300 WR, Coconut Creek (Fla.) North Broward Prep

Austin immediately catches your attention with his top-notch size on the perimeter, but it was the running ability and effectiveness when stretching the field that rewarded him with an invite to the Opening Finals.

He's very smooth for a wide receiver of his stature. He showed patience by really setting up the defensive backs in front of him, and flashed some crisp route-running to top it off. Austin is a mismatch problem for the majority of cornerbacks thrown in front of him.

Delone Scaife, 2018 OL, Miami (Fla.) Southridge

Scaife was one of the more athletic, fleet-footed offensive linemen that laced up the cleats in Davie, and that was evident during the one-on-one portion of the event. The Miami (Fl) Hurricanes commit showed no problem mirroring defensive ends by sliding his feet, but showed patience and a solid base as well.

Scaife, who will likely shift inside on the next level, has a clean frame and does a nice job of taking care of his body. Scaife punched his ticket to the Opening Finals as well.

Anthony Schwartz, 2018 Scout 300 WR, Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage

Schwartz has reputation for being one of the nation's fastest prospects regardless of position, and certainly backed that up with a blazing 4.34 in the 40-yard dash. His sheer quickness at the line of scrimmage allowed him to gain the upper hand on the majority of the defensive backs, and most of the time it was over shortly after that.

The Scout 300 prospect showed impressive body control and concentration when adjusting to poorly thrown balls, and recorded arguably the top catch of the day as well. Schwartz will be making the journey out to the Opening Finals.

Dominick Watt, 2018 WR, Hollywood (Fla.) McArthur

You have to love the ultra competitive kids that just want to better themselves at each camp, and that's exactly what Watt did by consistently climbing to the front of the line to test himself. Watt is not the most explosive receiver, but got defensive backs off balanced when setting them up with a head and shoulder shake down the field.

Watt did the majority of his damage when tracking behind the defense, but was consistent and did a good job of sticking his foot in the dirt when running those intermediate routes. This is a crafty pass catcher that also flashed strong hands.

Xavier Williams, 2018 Scout 100 WR, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna

Williams was a technician all Sunday afternoon. The Alabama commit showed off his impressive route running by breaking down defensive backs and baiting them in with double moves, and also tracked the ball through the air exceptionally well.

Williams, who earned a finals invite, is not a kid that's going to blow the top off a defense, but is a consistent, sure-handed receiver that does a little bit of everything on the outside.

It also looks like he's made the weight room a top priority since the end of last season.

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
