Scout delivers its top surprise performers from the 2017 Under Armour All-America Camp Orlando, in alphabetical order, based solely on Sunday's work.
Chandler Jones, 2018 CB, Miami (Fla.) Central
One of the surprisingly solid performances on Sunday was that of the scrappy Miamian, who mans the cornerback position with patience and confidence. Unafraid in press or off coverage, Jones got his hands on the football several times during both one-on-one work and seven-on-seven work. He plays with good leverage and isn't afraid to gamble for the football at times as well, all enough to earn him an invitation to the Under Armour All-America Game. Mississippi State, UCF and Appalachian State make up his current offer list.
Jalen Jordan, 2018 WR, Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy
A big, strong wide receiver, Jordan talked a lot at the event but he backed it up with toughness and grit, especially in the iLLSPEED portion of the event. His long stride and powerful leg drive helped him attain early leads and he was tough to make up ground on after those points. Jordan, whose lone offer is from Georgia Tech, left it all on the field Sunday. During the skill position work, he was arguably the most physical wide receiver at the event, able to use his long frame to win 50/50 balls at their apex. Troy has since offered.
Seneca Milledge, 2019 CB, Fort Myers (Fla.) Dunbar
Short in stature, but fast and efficient in his movement, Milledge was tough for anyone to beat in the iLLSPEED obstacle-course portion of the event. His ability to redirect and get to top speed held off every challenger, and this was after a day of manning up on wide receivers much bigger than he. NC State snagged his commitment just before the 2017 class made things official to kick off this month.
Eric Seidelman, 2018 OL, Orlando (Fla.) Bishop Moore
Sunday represented a stacked offensive line grouping in Orlando, but the top center on this day was the local rising-senior. Seidelman has a wide base and plays with a low center of gravity after snapping the football, helping him win the leverage battle more times than not. During reps, he also has the ability to anchor consistently against opponents despite giving up some length and athleticism at times. Few finished blocks better on this day than Seidelman. Coastal Carolina and UNC-Charlotte currently represent his biggest scholarship offers.
Riley Smith, 2018 QB, Jacksonville (Fla.) Bartram Trail
Last but certainly not least was arguably the top quarterback on the field Sunday in Smith. Long and lean, he stands tall in the pocket and can deliver the football fairly quickly despite somewhat long arms. Smith was probably the most consistent thrower on this day, anticipating cuts well and seldom throwing behind the intended receiver despite unfamiliarity with most that usually shows glaring flaws at these camp events. With tough and above-average arm strength, it's surprising to learn that the rising-senior doesn't yet hold a Power 5 offer, though he has many FBS and Ivy League opportunities. Brown has offered since the event's completion.
