Chalotte NFTC: Top Underclassmen

Numerous talented underclassmen were in attendance at last Saturday's Charlotte NFTC. Below are those who impressed Scout.

Josh Brown, 2016 DE, Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek

Brown, member of the class of 2016, was a pretty easy choice for the defensive line MVP. A quick edge rusher, Brown still did a good job navigating through the mud and beating offensive tackles inside and outside. He has a lean frame and a lot if room to add good weight the next two years before he graduates.

Christian Colon, 2016 DT, Charlotte (N.C.) Independence

Colon should see his recruitment take off this spring. Big body, but has good mobility as well. Can be a plugger on the next level and he looks to be one that could anywhere from zero to three technique.

Elijah Deveaux, 2016 RB, Charlotte (N.C.) Charlotte Christian

Deveaux is a powerful runner, who looks to have added 15 to 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason. Despite adding the weight, he actually looked to be quicker and very fluid in drills. Deveaux also proved to be a dependable receiver out of the backfield, running good routes and catching the ball away from his body.

Bryce Dixon, 2016 WR, Cary (N.C.) Green Hope

Dixon is a long, fluid athlete. He runs crisp routes and catches the ball well away from his body. Dixon also uses his size well and goes up and gets the ball at its highest point. He will be a prospect to watch over the next few years.

Clifton Duck, 2016 CB, Matthews (N.C.) Butler

Duck is fluid athlete with good instincts. He has a smooth backpedal and is explosive out of his breaks. He understands the position and has a knack for making big plays.

Zach Gilbert, 2016 DE, Charlotte (N.C.) South Mecklenburg

Gilbert is a little undersized, but strong at the point of attack and has the ability to dip the shoulder to get around the edge. His quickness off the ball is also a strength.

Tim Glass, 2016 S, Danville (Va.) George Washington

Glass has good size and is extremely physical. He is also smooth in coverage and has good range in the secondary. He picked up his first two scholarship offers last week and more are on the way.

Tre Harbison, 2016 RB, Shelby (N.C.) Crest

This young man is still growing and could be a running back or linebacker on the next level. He is physical, he mixed it up Saturday, and he showed good agility and feet.

Jake Helms, 2016 OG, Davidson (N.C.) Day

Lined up at right tackle to start the day, but is an interior line prospect. Helms has a powerful upper body and gets a strong initial punch. He should be one of the top linemen at the event next year as a junior.

Garrett Hooker, 2016 MLB, Thomasville (N.C.) Ledford

Hooker has added some good muscle to his frame during the offseason, but is also much quicker. His lateral movement has improved a lot over the past few months and he looked more comfortable in pass coverage. After a huge sophomore campaign, look for even bigger things this fall.

Austin Kendall, 2016 QB, Charlotte (N.C.) Charlotte Christian

Kendall threw a nice ball much of the day. He did have a couple that got away from him, but he is such a smart quarterback, he really made good reads, and he is going to be one of the best in 2016.

Benjamin Lemay, 2016 RB, Matthews (N.C.) Butler

Lemay is a prospect that just continues to improve. Throughout the camp, he showed the ability to do many things. Lemay displayed quick feet, impressive power and improved speed. He also looked to be in tremendous physical condition, which will be critical this fall, as he will be asked to shoulder an even bigger load for Butler.

Avery McCall, 2016 QB, Dillon (S.C.)

McCall has a big arm and made several nice throws. He plays with confidence and makes good decisions. McCall also showed good mechanics and a quick release. There is no doubt that he will be one of the top signal-callers in the 2016 class.

Traveon Redd, 2016 S, Ridgeway (Va.) Magna Vista

Redd is a very strong safety. He has a fluid backpedal and showed the ability to play man and zone coverage. Redd also does a nice job of reading the quarterback's eyes and making plays on the football.

Robbie Robinson, 2016 CB, Hampton (Va.) Phoebus

Although he is not the biggest corner, Robinson is one of the best in the 2016 class. He is tough and fearless. Robinson has also added a good amount of muscle during the offseason and it showed when he was in man coverage, as he was able to jam several receivers. He also showed a quick, smooth backpedal and made several plays on the ball.

Melvin Rouse, 2017 CB, Charlotte (N.C.) Latin

Rouse will be a prospect to keep an eye on over the next few years. He had a great freshman campaign and looked even better on Saturday. Despite being one of the youngest prospects at the camp, Rouse challenged every receiver he faced. He is an athletic, smart defensive back with great instincts.

Cedric Stone, 2016 CB, Charlotte (N.C.) Independence

Young and long, Stone has the natural tools to become an impact defensive back one day. He's likely a safety at the next level, but he showed good physicality and savvy in one-on-one drills. His long arms stymie the stem of his oppositions routes and help him get a hand on the ball more times than not. Stone's best asset may be his anticipation and understanding of the route tree, however.

Corey Sutton, 2016 WR, Cornelius (N.C.) Hough

Perhaps the most complete receiver at the event, Sutton is a combination of length, speed and body control. He runs better routes than most underclassmen, has the presence of mind to set up his defender at the top of the route, and hauls in every pass with his arms and hands extended away from his body.

Levonta Taylor, 2016 CB, Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes

Taylor was impressive all day. He was fluid in drills and performed well in one-on-ones. Taylor, who is one of the top cornerbacks in 2016 class, looked bigger and stronger than he was last season. He has good technique, is very fast and makes plays on the ball. It's scary to think he has two years of high school football left to play.

Daquan Tindal, 2016 OLB, Sumter (S.C.) Lakewood

Tindal was another sophomore who stood out during pursuit drills. At 6-foot-3-plus, Tindal covered a lot of ground quickly, but still had the flexibility to break down and change directions.

Antonio Williams, 2016 RB, New London (N.C.) North Stanley

A huge running back with quick feet, Williams was winning reps in agility one on ones with the size to run over most of the linebackers in attendance. He's going to be a lot of fun to watch on the field the next two years.

Jackson Williamson, 2017 QB, Anderson (S.C.) T.L. Hanna

Williamson is far more advanced than most quarterbacks his age. He is tall and has a good frame to add weight. Williamson is comfortable throwing the ball from the pocket or on the run. He also has good mechanics and a quick release.

Anthony Womack, 2016 S, Virginia Beach (Va) Ocean Lakes

Womack is a strong, physical defensive back. His smooth backpedal and quick hips allowed him to make several plays on Saturday. He will join and already loaded secondary at Ocean Lakes this fall and look for offers to start coming his way in the near future.
