Waco Combine MVP: Kenneth Beasley

The official roster of prospects in attendance for the Waco Combine had the Scout Recruiting Team all smiles. The kids came out with a ton of confidence and a lot of hype, but they backed it up. Combine Director Scott Kennedy said, "So far, (Texas) is the best camp of them all, with one more to go (Akron, Ohio)... I have never seen this many ridiculous measurements from this many kids, at one combine." And one prospect performed enough above the other studs to grab MVP honors...

The first Waco Combine MVP award goes to Kenneth Beasley of West Orange-Stark. This kid excelled throughout the day in both the testing phase and in the one-on-ones.

Measurements: Beasley checked in at 5-9.5/163 pounds and clocked a 4.54. In addition, he clocked a 4.37 shuttle-time, recorded a very impressive 35-inch vertical and 10' broad jump.

Logging reps at wideout, the Texas Top 20 prospect did a very good DeSean Jackson impersonation. They have similar size and similar skills. He's devastating there, and will go up and make plays on the ball as if it's second nature to him. Kid burned several corners and did it frequently. He even juked our No. 1 CB Perrish Cox out of his shoes (so to speak), and Cox is a lock-down extraordinaire.

When it was time to work out at cornerback, the University of Texas commit didn't waste anytime proving he has the skills, potential and upside to eventually dominate there as well.

Kid's got really quick feet, very athletic, and is relentless in his pursuit of the ball. Beasley's mentality is all about doing whatever it takes to come down with the ball. He'll snatch it up just as easy at either position.

But the most impressive thing about the prep from Orange is he came to the Waco Combine on a mission, with something to prove. Beasley was literally taking any and all reps available, snatching the next rep when someone was loligaggin' around. His stamina, desire to prove he belongs at the top of the high school pecking order, and work ethic just adds to his overall game.
