The OL with the best physical skills and body was 2014 OL Kealvin Davis from Lakeview Centennial. He's 6-foot-5, 275 lbs. according to his dad. He ran about the fastest forty for an OL at 5.2. That indoor bubble is extremely slow. That turf is horrible. It is too soft and spongy. I'd take off a tenth. Not bad for a long, 16 year-old OL. Dad told me he grew up a big Texas fan and Mack Brown has been all over him and they have offered (oh wait..approved for an offer). Dad said they are not a lock anywhere and want to go through the process. I saw him on the way out and they called Kealvin up to the office and will likely offer said dad.
Another kid to watch is 2013 offensive tackle Christian Daimler from Stratford. This is just a big-framed kid and moves well. I just watched his junior highlights and I think he's added a lot of lower body mass and looked like a different player today from his junior highlights where he looks a little gangly and skinny at his base. He looked much better today. I'd say he was probably the #2 or #3 OL out there today. I talked to him and the offers are starting to roll in.
LaPorte's Mike Leagan measured in at 6-foot-1.5, 290-pounds. McKinney was talking to dad quite a bit and they like him. Mike was in a boot all summer and this was his first workout since his injury so he was a little rusty and out of shape but he held up well in one-on-ones because he has excellent footwork. They told him today they will recruit him as a pure center. He has also decided to stay closer to home and A&M would be very much in the hunt if they offer. I also talked to dad about Hoza and he said Hoza is definitely smitten with LSU right now, but he was quick to say that Hoza is very impressionable. Basically, give it a few weeks and bring him in for a campus visit and you can probably wipe the slate clean again.
I mentioned big 6-foot-5, 280-pound Magnolia DT Ajahne Brager in a separate thread. If you look at him on the hoof, he'll make you drool. He still needs to gain some strength and refine a few things, but there's a very good DT inside there. Did I say he had length and arms? Yes.
The two A&M commits from Rockwall-Heath were there. The buzz at the camp was that Jay Arnold ran a 4.65. If that is accurate, then he should play receiver (joking). Running 4.65 on that slow track is incredible. If true, he's faster than a quarter of A&M's receivers. He has a nice medium build, but after eyeballing him and watching him use his speed and quickness in one-on-ones, I think he's definitely a defensive end prospect.
On the other hand, Jordan Points has filled out and looks to be somebody that definitely has the ability to puff out and be a 280+ lb. guy when it's all said and done. Points is definitely the more emotional fire and ice player while Arnold is the steady, even-keeled consistent playmaker on the outside. Points' size really surprised me. He's a good ball player.
