Where do you start when looking at those from
Well one place is with state runner-up
“It’s been one of the funniest things. Darrell played some key minutes for us in the first half and is more of a between the tackles straight ahead runner. We were getting stopped and felt we needed to go outside and use our speed so Darrell wasn’t part of those plays. I’ve heard he was injured or did something wrong and that is not the truth.”
But while some may have questioned Mason’s ability he showed on Sunday he’s a legit player with major talent holding his own. Joining Mason were several teammates including Jamel Turner and Dale Peterman who each showed they’ve got skills to be watched.
But while Mason and Underwood enjoyed good days, no one had a better day than Chris Snook of
Snook left no stone unturned on the day and took many reps and didn’t back away gaining praise from a couple of the coaches as well as from members of the Scout.com team. During the running back / linebacker battles Snook picked off three passes showing the ability to cover, open his hips and adjust to catch the ball over the back. In my opinion Snook was one of the Top Five performers on the day if not the MVP of the event in a very crowded field of top performers.
Another linebacker catching some looks is Hussain Trowery of
While I wasn’t overly impressed with the offensive linemen at the combine a few stood out with two being from
I first saw Brian Smith at the Cleveland Combine and on Sunday he showed he’s got some athletic ability running a 5.3 forty to go with a 4.52 shuttle and 7.81 L-cone. While the Walsh Jesuit product will need to do some work on his techniques, Smith will turn a few heads with his physical size and ability.
The other was another player first seen at the Cleveland Combine in February. Adam Scheid of Avon Lake showed he’s worked hard since the early combine showing his overall ability should make him a D-I player before it’s all done. Like Smith he’ll need to continue to work on his techniques and show well in the summer camp season. Several MAC programs have been showing interest.
Steubenville Central Catholic defensive end Zac Costlow posted a nice forty time and did well in the individual work. Camps will make or break any chance of Costlow being a prospect that gets noticed.
But no player or coach walked out more pleased than
A great looking athlete Courtney Avery is a player who will have time to earn his place at the top of the Class of 2010. Showing great physical skills Avery will be one of the top corners in his class and a kid who should pick up early offers in the process.
