Under Armour Houston Top 10 Offensive Performers

SPRING, Texas -- Factoring in performance in the drills and in the one-on-ones Scout examines the top 10 offensive performers at the Under Armour Camp at Spring Westfield High on Sunday.

WR Miles Battle - Cypress (Texas) Creek

Battle was named the WR MVP at The Opening Dallas, but he had an even stronger performance at the Under Armour camp on Sunday where he was pitted often against the top defensive backs in the camp and showed his ability to climb the ladder to pluck balls out of the air and make plays over the top. He also showed surprising speed and athleticism for a player in his frame. It is easy to see why he has over 25 offers and his ranking on Scout will be on the rise. 

OT Kenyon Green - Atascocita (Texas)

The LSU Tigers commit in the 2019 class certainly did not look like an underclassman or younger competitor in any way. He has the skills to play left tackle and he continues to get better and better each time we see him. At this camp he came out with a bit of a chip on his shoulder and was able to showcase why all of the top programs in the country would like him to suit up for them in college. He has been successful in the two biggest camps in the off-season and also played well against some top competition in pads versus 6A TXHSFB competition. Will be one of the top-rated OL prospects nationally in his class. Earned an invite to the Future 50. 

WR Jalen Preston - Manvel (Texas)

Preston is a physical presence at the wide receiver position and he has a unique set of skills at the position. He uses his body well to shield defenders from the football, but what I really liked to see from him on Sunday was strong hands. He made some of the camp's toughest catches in tight coverage. He is also a tremendous leaper -- which also makes him a great basketball player -- and some of the plays where he used his vertical ability were highlight moments of the day. Has offers from schools all over the country, but consistently mentions Oklahoma and Texas A&M when talking favorites. He is an Under Armour All-American. 

OG Kardell Thomas - Southern University Lab (La.)

Not a prospect I was too familiar with coming into the camp, but after watching him on Sunday it was easy to see why he has been tabbed as an early four-star prospect on Scout and why a college like LSU stepped up to the plate with an early offer and promptly accepted his commitment. The foundation that Thomas and Green will build for the Tigers' 2019 recruiting efforts could be quite special. Quarterbacks and running back prospects will definitely take note. Thomas is massive in the upper body and plays with a mean streak. He was putting some top defensive tackles on their backs. Earned an invite to the Future 50. 

WR Al'vonte Woodard - Houston (Texas) Lamar

Probably the MVP of the camp, Woodard is a technician at the wide receiver position, who was able to create tremendous separation with his route running ability. He has all the moves in his bag of tricks. The four-star also has plus size at the position and could really fit into any offense. He is big enough and strong enough to play outside and quick enough and smooth enough to play in the slot. He is closing in on releasing his Top 10, but look for schools like Ohio State and Texas A&M to be on his list. Earned an invite to the Under Armour All-America Game.  

The Best of the Rest: WR Tommy Bush (Samuel Clemens, Texas), WR Brennan Eagles (Alief Taylor, Texas), RB Ta'Zhawn Henry (Houston Lamar, Texas), C Cole Smith (Pontotoc, Miss.), WR Jaylen Waddle (Bellaire Episcopal)
