Here's a look at some of the top prospects who are expected to be on hand Sunday.
During the quarterback drills, all eyes will be on Virginia natives and Scout.com four-star prospects Peter Lalich (Springfield) and Tyrod Taylor (Hampton). Throughout the year the debate will rage on as to which of the two holds the crown as the Old Dominion State's top recruit, but this will be one of the very few times both dual-threat quarterbacks can be compared head-to-head in a controlled environment.
Rodney Cox (Angier, N.C.), Brandon Hogan (Manassas, Va.), Lindell Stevenson (Bennettsville, S.C.) and Quan Sturdivant (Oakboro, N.C.) are athletic quarterback types that will receive opportunities to throw, while also possibly working out at other positions.
Big Ryan Houston (Matthews, N.C.) – a Scout.com four-star prospect – will headline a very diverse group of running backs Sunday. Rounding out the assorted group of ‘backs will be Nic Cooper (Clinton, N.C.), Ben Herlocker (Charlotte, N.C.), Tommy Henry (Maiden, N.C.), Daronte McNeil (Elizabeth City, N.C.), Kevin Simmons (Virginia Beach, Va.), Daryl Vereen (Huntersville, N.C.), and Tyrell Worthington (Winterville, N.C.).
Wide Receiver/Tight Ends
Pound-for-pound, the receiving unit could possibly be the most talented position in attendance providing quarterbacks solid options during passing drills. The group is expected to include Scout.com five-star prospect Greg Little (Durham, N.C.) and four-star prospect Mark Barnes (Columbia, S.C.), as well as Kris Burd (Ettrick, Va.), Steven Howard (Charlotte, N.C.), UNC commit Dwight Jones (Burlington, N.C.), and Jay Smith (Virginia Beach, Va.).
The o-line will arguably be the most deep and talented position on display Sunday. Nearly ten of the linemen expected to be on hand hold at least one Division I-A scholarship offer led by Scout.com four-star lineman Trinton Sturdivant, who possesses over 20 offers including Miami, Notre Dame, and Florida State.
Other attendees with offers include William Alvarez (Woodbridge, Va.), Khalil Latif (Midlothian, Va.), Desmond Roberts (Gaston, N.C.), Landon Walker (Ronda, N.C.), and Duke commit Doug Weaver (Roxboro, N.C.).
While the d-line will lack the depth, it will pack a comparable punch to its offensive counterparts. Expected participates include tackles Clemson commit Jarvis Jenkins (Central, S.C.), Cliff Matthews (Cheraw S.C.), and Tydreke Powell (Ahoskie, N.C.), and end Junius Lewis (Morgantown, W.Va.).
Adding additional intrigue to the trench battles is Richardson pulling double duty by seeing reps also on the defensive line.
While this group might lack the national star power, don't sleep on the Durham Combine's linebacking corps.
Pat Lazear (Bethesda, Md.), Barquell Rivers (Wadesboro, N.C.), and J'Courtney Williams (Christchurch, Va.) should continue to raise their already soaring recruiting stocks as they continue to gain publicity, while Matt Little (Durham, N.C.), and Darryl Smith (Charlotte, N.C.) plan to make a name for themselves Sunday.
Converted tailbacks Michael Bowman (Wadesboro, N.C.), Markus Hunter (High Point, N.C.), and James Pone (Wilson, N.C.) are still learning the craft of defensive back, but should definitely showcase their pure athletic ability during combine drills.
Arguably the best underclassman in attendance will be rising sophomore tailback Desmond Scott (Durham, N.C.). Last weekend, Scott dominated the Elite 8 combine held in Snow Hill, N.C. where he recorded the combine's best times in both the 40-yard dash (4.40 seconds) and 20-yard shuttle (3.93 seconds).
Among the talented roster of 2008 grads are tight end Demery Brewer (Lincolnton, N.C.), cornerback J.T. Floyd (Greenville, S.C.), linebacker Gavin Gaston (Charlotte, N.C.), offensive tackle R.J. Mattes (Concord, N.C.) and quarterback Tino Sunseri (Monroe, N.C.).
