SOR was there to bring you the action and give you an update as to what is going on in regards to the recruitment of these talented defensive prospects.
Jr. DT Sharrif Floyd
Sharrif was a man amongst boys. Floyd checked in at 6-foot-3 and 305 lbs and ran a 5.12 forty. I noticed him as soon as he walked in because he just has superstar written all over him. He probably did the best from the defensive side of the line during 1-on-1‘s. He gets off the ball well and plays pretty low. The fact that he could easily bull rush any player there, made it so that he didn't have to display a full repertoire but at time, he proved to have those moves in the arsenal as well. Rutgers is definitely in it.
Jr. DT Terrace Bourne
Terrace proved to be pretty athletic. He measured in at 6'0 288 pounds. He actually has been eating better and has lost about 30 pounds since the last time we had seen him. He did well in 1-on-1's displaying the physical quickness and hands to be able to produce on the next level. He ran a slower forty time than his previously listed 4.8, but still has enough speed to excel at the position.
Jr. DT Wayne Carter
Wayne unfortunately pulled a hamstring and therefore was unable to participate most of the day, but I can tell you that he is a physically imposing player. He measured in at 6'0 325 and there was definitely a huge sigh of relief when the players realized they didn't have to compete against him. He was dominate at a previous camp this spring and unfortunately was unable to continue on his Hot Streak. He plans to attend the Big Time Showcase where he will display his skills once again. He currently holds no offers, but has Rutgers interest.
Jr. DT Michael Pearson
Michael from Ballou H.S. in Washington D.C. impressed me a good deal. I had never heard of him coming into the event but he definitely caught my eye. He measured in at 6'2.5 295 lbs and was an unmovable force. He worked mostly on offense but showed out on defense during the 1-on-1's. Apparently, he is being courted by Maryland, North Carolina, and Virgina although no one has offered as of yet. He claims to have tremendous Rutgers interest and would definitely pay attention if offered.
Jr. LB Nick Forbes
Nick Forbes is a stud. The 6'1 225 lb. prototypical MLB-type definitely passed the eyeball test. He was as well- put- together as anyone I have seen thus far. Although he didn't test in any of the events he dominated 1-on-1's. The thing is, he was actually getting out in coverage and shutting guys down. He can do it all. He was flawless at all of the drills and I am willing to go out on a limb and say that even though he didn't test, he was the best kid at the event Nick is definitely a Rutgers- type kid as well. He proved to be a great kid and was obviously the group leader during position drills.
We will have content including video interviews and action clips in regards to the combine spread throughout the week. Stay tuned.
