USAAAB Day Two East Co-MVPs

SAN ANTONIO, Texas—Two players stood out at practice a little bit more than everyone else, so we decided the only fair thing to do was to name co-most valuable players for Tuesday's practice session Mike Hull and Christian Bryant.

Canonsburg (Pa.) Canon McMillan four-star middle linebacker Mike Hull didn't have a bad first day, but you could tell he was a little nervous and not himself. On Tuesday, Hull looked like the player that is ranked as the nation's No. 2 rated player at his position. The East broke up into two groups as they worked on run offense/defense and then 7v7 on opposite ends of the field.

Hull was a man on a mission as he appeared to make almost every single tackle of the fifteen minute session. None of the linemen were quick enough to get to the second level to block him and if they did Hull was quick to shed the block and get to the ball carrier.

It is very difficult for a freshman to play linebacker at Penn State, but we won't sell Hull short, we firmly believe that he has the chance to be a four-year contributor for the Nittany Lions.

Our second choice is Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville three-star Christian Bryant who has played himself into a likely rankings boost. Bryant may not be as big as some of the other corners in this game, but his cover skills are as good if not better than anyone here. He plays much bigger than he is and plays a physical brand of ball.

Bryant shows impressive closing speed and a very smooth and fluid back pedal. Bryant made several big plays, most notably a diving interception of a deep pass. What is even more impressive about Bryant's showing on Tuesday was the fact that he challenged the nation's No. 2 rated wide receiver Kyle Prater most of the day.
