Below are photos taken from some of the Top OL we viewed at the camp
Carneal Ainsworth (OG,
Episcopal, LA) - The 6' 3", 300 pound offensive guard really picked it up
in the late stages of the camp when most of the attendees were dragging around
due to the heat.
This really caught the attention of the staff's eye, as they are looking for not only talented players but ones who can fight through the heat.
Dallas has the complete game. Long arms and measuring in at 6' 6", 283 with footwork like a tight end (ran a sub 5.0 forty at scout combine) does not hurt either.
Alabama, Florida State, Ole Miss, LSU and several more schools have already offered.

Rufus Quinn (OT, Grenada, MS)
- Rufus was pretty much an unknown commodity going into the camp. His teammate,
DeMarcus Tidwell, has received all of the pub,
but Quinn has the talent to play on the D1 level.
He looked to be in the 6' 3", 300 pound range and ran very good for a guy his size.
Saia (OG, Dutchtown , LA) - The 6' 2", 300 pounder has very good lateral
quickness which allows him to block the explosive defensive linemen. Showed great
footwork all day and constantly won the one on one drills during the morning and
Evan Ruiz (OT, Baton Rouge, LA) - The 6' 3", 280 pound St. Michael product put on a good showing today. He consistently stayed ahead of his defender and has very strong hands.
Adams (OT, Mt. Juliet, TN) - The 6' 5", 330 pounder visited Ole Miss
for Jr Day and also attended the Spring game.
Adams as the frame to work with. Conditioning will be a key with Slade. When he gets to the weight he needs to be at, his footwork and stamina will improve. Nevertheless, he has the tools it takes to play on the D1 level.
Jake Wolf (OL, Nashville, TN)
- The 6' 4", 300 pounder has long arms which are needed for offensive tackles,
and he also has the body frame you are looking for.
Jake will need to continue to work on his conditioning, but once he gets that down pat, his game will prosper.
He looks to be in the 5.4 forty range and can really move laterally with the best of them.

Several key prospects that will be attending the skilled camp tomorrow arrived a day earlier and watched the OL/DL camp from the sidelines.
Each one of the pictured prospects below have been offered by Ole Miss.
