It was the final camp session for the Kirby Smart camp, and there were a few guys who really stood out during drills. The media was only allowed to watch the first hour of the camp, so I was not able to see the final 1 on 1 battles between the top campers. From what I was able to see, there were still a few guys who stood out among the rest.
Carver (GA) athlete Quindarious Hale is a top 2018 defensive back who looked very sharp early in the camp. The 6-foot-2 175-pound Hale stood out in the group physically, and showed great ball skills in the drills. He is a kid who loves to compete, and has a chance to be a solid safety or move down to linebacker at the next level. Hale currently holds offers from Auburn, Florida State, among others. I’m expecting more on the way for one of the top defensive backs in Georgia next year.
Alpharetta (GA) running back Nolan Edmonds was another guy who impressed early. The 5-foot-11 190-pound back is well put together, and showed good burst and quickness going through drills. He easily stood out in the group. Look for Edmonds to have a big junior season in 2016. He is a prospect who could really emerge onto the recruiting scene in the next few months.
South Broward (FL) receiver Dennis Robinson stood out in the receiver group. He’s a tall kid at 6-foot-5 195-pounds and he caught the ball well. Again it would have been nice to see him go 100% against some of the defensive backs, but that was not the case today. He did look like one of the better receivers in the group that I saw. He is a Northern Illinois commit who has the chance to earn bigger offers down the road.
Maleik Alston was a massive wide receiver who also looked very good. I couldn’t find too much about him, even what school he plays for, but he was a massive kid compared to everyone else. He is built well and certainly has the size or a big collegiate wide receiver or tight end.
Griffin (QB) Tylan Morton has been impressive at numerous camps all spring, and he was the top QB prospect in the group along with Colquitt County (QB) Jay Saunders. Morton easily stands out physically at 6-foot-5, and he throws a very catchable ball.
T.L Hannah (SC) offensive lineman Kavesz Sherard was also impressive in the lineman group. The massive 6-foot-4 310-pound lineman holds offers from Clemson, South Carolina, among others and is one of the top tackle prospects in South Carolina for the 2018 class. Head Coach Kirby Smart knows the Hannah coach very well, so it will be interesting to see if Sherard gets an offer down the road.
