Scout was on hand and here are some of the prospects that stood out:
The 6-foot-6, 255 pound end is what schools are looking for in a big end that can get after the quarterback. He really gets off the ball quick, he has great reaction time, he has great length, he closes on the ball well, he has a high motor, and he has so much upside.
His ceiling is extremely high. He was so dominant and he just made things look so easy on Wednesday. He has the frame to add significant weight, he is going to get so much stronger, and he has so much to learn in the technique department. He does not even really use his hands yet, but he knows how to fire off the ball, dip that shoulder, get skinny when needs to bypass blockers, and to find that football.
It will be fun to watch Jones in the Under Armour All-America game in a few weeks, but expect a change in his ranking before then.
He really did a nice job Wednesday of starting out low, getting off the ball low, and driving the defender off the ball.
Flowers still has plenty of room to develop and he needs to work on holding his blocks longer and moving his feet more consistent in pass protection, but he has a lot of raw ability, and he could be the top offensive lineman in the state.
He is a Mississippi State commitment.
Derrick Jones did too.
The 6-foot-2, 180 pound wide receiver out of Eupora that is committed to Ole Miss had a strong practice. He is not a receiver that blows you away with his speed, but he was very consistent catching the football, getting open, and he showed he could track the ball well, and go up and get it in traffic.
He probably a 4.6 second guy in the 40 and he can improve on his quickness off the line, but when he gets into his route, he is fluid and he makes the catch.
He knows how to use that size to his advantage and he doesn't lack confidence.
Bradley got in there and scrapped with the big guys and he was in on numerous plays. He is able to get into the gaps quickly and either make a play or re-direct the running to someone else.
The Noxubee County star is holding his own and making a lot of noise on the practice field this week.
Look for him to be rated by Scout in the near future.
He knows how to use that size to his advantage. He really ran hard on Wednesday and he would use that jump step to bounce it outside or he was hit the hole hard and fast inside the tackles. He was impressive doing both.
His pad level was good, he showed he could be a receiver out of the backfield, and he showed a little more quickness to the hole and to the edge than expected.
He is currently ranked as the no. 12 safety in the country on Scout, but that ranking may need to be adjusted. Shumpert could be slotted as a running back in the high teens to low twenties.
Shumpert was the second most impressive performer on Wednesday behind Chris Jones.
It will likely come down to Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
Mix played tackle at South Panola and he has mixed it up this week at practice, but he is ranked as a guard by Scout and he will end up there. He still needs to work on his footwork and the re-shaping of his body. He will need a redshirt year, some time in the weight room, and some coaching before he is ready to contribute on the SEC level. He has good length and you see the toughness at times, so his ranking seems to be about right.
Thomas could be a possibility at right tackle if needed, but he looks like he may have the higher ceiling as an interior OL. He could be a pulling guard and a guy that gets out in front of running backs on screens. He looked to be the most advanced of the offensive linemen there when talking technique, and he has good pad level, but he feet may not be quick enough for those explosive pass rushers he will need to hold off on the next level. He is a prospect that could play inside or outside, but after watching practice on Wednesday and comparing tape, he could be the no. 2 OL in the state behind Flowers. That is something that will be examined.
