Nike Opening Dallas: Michigan Report

The Dallas Nike Opening Regional: Michigan prospects combine report.

FRISCO, Texas -- The Opening Nike Regional was held at the Dallas Cowboys practice facility at the Ford Center today, which showcased top-talent from around the Longhorn state. 

In fact, many top stars participated with Michigan offers or interest from the Wolverines, and The Michigan Insider was there for your full coverage of the event. 

Offensive Standouts 

While only a 2019 prospect, Kameron Brown belonged among the elite receivers at today’s camp. At 6-foot, 170-pounds, he’s smooth in his route running, and gets in and out of routes in routine fashion. He won the majority of his 1-on-1 match ups throughout the day. Already with big time offers from Alabama, Michigan and Florida State, expect to hear more from this super junior-to-be in the future.

At 6-foot-2, 191-pounds, Kassidy Woods is tough match up for smaller DB’s. If you throw it up, he can go up and get the ball with the best of them. While he’s on Michigan’s radar the moment, he did show potential to be a high power-five type offer guy in Dallas.

If you throw it up, count on 2019 wide receiver Trejan Bridges to come down with the catch. He showcased big play ability, tremendous hands, and reliability that would make any quarterback feel at ease. At 6-foot-3, 174-pounds, he looks the part too.

Rated the No. 1 RB in Texas, Keaontay Ingram is elusive, with just enough wiggle, and that was shown today. He’s definitely a running back that can help out in passing situations with his pass catching ability, and, of course, can hit you with a home run both inside and outside in the running game. Like most camps, they’re just not set up for RB’s to showcase their best skills, but from what he showed, you saw enough to understand why he’s a four-star talent.

At 6-foot-5, 330-pounds, Darrell Simpson is load at left tackle. Like most kids in his age group, he’ll need to develop more physically moving forward. He might end up at right tackle eventually, but either way, he showed nice feet and has a nice punch off the line that you look for in an O-lineman.

Defensive Standouts 

Gemon Green earned camp MVP honors for his play today, and you can easly see why. At 6-foot-1, 170-pounds, Green showcases good length and speed for a cornerback. He was one of the best man-to-man cover guys all day, and probably will earn an Opening invite eventually.

While not as highly coveted as his brother, German Green doubles up at safety and CB. He’ll need to add weight to his frame, but altogether showed good enough cover skills to earn even higher offers than he already has in place.

Four-star DE Cameron Latu made his way form Salt Lake City, to compete with the best, and walked away as the clear best defensive lineman in attendance. He was simply too quick for the lackles, and has great motor for a player at his age. At 6-foot-5, 230-pounds, he’ll only get better moving forward, which is dangerous considering how good he is already.
