Last weekend USFnation.com was on hand for the first three days of camp held at Florida State University in Tallahassee. Among some of the athletes in attendance there were three Plant City High School kids that caught our eye.
Lott is a 5-foot-9, 160 pound, senior cornerback that plays much bigger than his actual size. The first thing we noticed about him was his aggressiveness. He was extremely physical at the line of scrimmage and on more than one occasion stopped the receiver from even getting off the line.
Lott has this to say about his playing style, "I compare my style to Deion Sanders, but I also have upper body strength and like to hit."
His coach at Plant City, Todd Long agrees and added, "He's the best corner on the team, a solid cover guy. When this kid puts pads on watch out, he's a hitter."
Lott told USFnation that he attended a team camp at USF two weeks ago and was impressed with the facilities. He has been in contact with USF and likes the direction of the program.
At 5-foot-10 and 183 pounds Bennett ran a 4.5 forty at the FSU camp. We saw he has good quickness especially laterally. He also has good acceleration when changing direction. As a sophomore last year he started at safety and also played some running back. This coming season he will be featured more at running back.
Bennett says he has a unique style but a lot of people compare him to Warrick Dunn. However his coach thinks there is also another quality to his game, "He is a great blocker, one of the best we have." Adding, "he is very physical with good size and speed."
Coach Long suggested that if he continues to get stronger and keep his grades up he could be a big prospect.
Bellamy is also a junior, at 6-foot 160 pounds he plays corner, safety and wide receiver. He would prefer to be recruited as a strong safety but he is open to anything. Bellamy is not as polished as Lott but uses his aggressiveness and size to shut down the opponent.
Bellamy simply says, "I love to hit." Adding, "I'm real aggressive, I close in quickly on the receiver when I make the tackle."
Although he likes the safety position his coach thinks that if he can add some size he might fit in better at outside linebacker. Coach Long says, "he started some as a sophomore and with more game experience will only improve."
Bellamy also said he would like to play for USF but grew up a Florida State fan.
