Orlando NFTC: Underclassmen

There was a pretty strong contingent of underclassmen at the Orlando Nike Football Training Camp, led by Tampa Catholic.

Tavares Chase (Plant City, Fla.)
Chase is another exceptional wide receiver talent in the 2016 class. He has good size (6-2) but only weights 170-pounds or size. But he has a long frame and plenty of time to bulk up. This kid has very good speed and shows the ability to get behind the secondary or make a guy miss in space.

Nate Craig (Tampa Catholic)
Craig is only a sophomore and a member of the 2016 class. He had another impressive outing and continues to develop as a player. You can tell Craig's working in the weight room because he has added muscle to his frame. This is an ultra-smooth and speedy wide receiver that just runs right by people. It's like watching a gazelle. He's wasn't the best receiver today but down the line he could emerge as the best one of this group.

D'Ante Demery (Brunswick, Ga.)
Dimery is a huge rising sophomore in the 2017 class. He's an offensive tackle prospect that is a very long 6-foot-6, 320-pounds. Dimery is certainly one to watch as he matures through the high school ranks and continues to develop. He has good feet and a wide body.

Feleipe Franks (Crawfordville, Fla./Wakulla)
Franks has so much upside as he develops over the next two-plus years. He threw consistent spirals Friday and Saturday and it was fun to watch him throw the deep ball. He needs to work on his consistency, polish his mechanics and tighten up his delivery. He has a very long release. Franks is only a sophomore but already a four-star recruit.

Tomon Fox (Suwannee, Ga./Collins Hills)
This sophomore made the final five on the defensive line and he won consecutive battles against top offensive tackle Abdul Bello late in the day. The defensive line coaches spoke highly of him and he stood out. He moved well, he showed good strength, and he displayed good speed off the ball. Fox also stood up strong against Bello, wasn't intimidated not back off, as those two almost really got into it against a rep.
