Several of the state's top prospects took part in all the drills. Designed to be very similar to the things the players at the NFL Combine do every year in Indianapolis, this combine did an excellent job of providing the players with an opportunity to showcase their skills to what will ultimately be a huge audience of college coaches.
Pahokee running back Antone Smith (5-8, 190) was the best prospect at Saturday's event. Although the talented running back, who also has scholarship offers from a number of major college programs including the Canes, tweaked an ankle he still provided some excitement. His 4.41/40-time and 40-inch vertical jump were both Saturday highs at the Camp.
Wide receiver Cedric McGee (6-0, 175) of Plantation showed off his skills Saturday and proved why he'll be among the state's top prospects at his position. The talented pass-catcher didn't run as well as he had hoped but jumped 32 inches and is clearly a difference maker at the position. A lot of major college programs are already paying close attention.
Defensively, three of Broward County's top prospects showed off their skills. Although Dillard linebacker Elijah Hodge (6-0, 195) was bothered by a lower back problem that forced him to end his day a bit early, he put up some impressive numbers. Hodge ran a 4.78/40 and jumped 31 inches. He already boasts some Div. 1 scholarship offers.
Boyd Anderson's Gerald Williams took a break from his busy AAU basketball schedule to make an appearance at the Camp. The talented linebacker, who likely projects as a defensive end at the college level, checked in at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds. He ran a 4.88, jumped 31 inches, and did 15 reps on the 185-pound bench press. Williams then displayed tremendous athletic ability, balance, and flexibility during drills.
Deerfield Beach's Jemalle Howard (5-10, 150) looked very impressive during all the drills for defensive backs. With excellent hips, footwork, and a break on the ball, Howard will get plenty of recruiting attention this fall.
"This is great to see all these kids out here," said founder and CEO of MSL Management Shawn Garrity. "There are a lot of good-looking kids out here."
Williams has been to several camps and combines over the last couple years and came away impressed.
"There are a lot of drills here," he said. "They do a lot of different things. I love it out here and I think it'll definitely help me."
