Combine Wrap-Up: Part 2

This past weekend many of the top players in the state of Texas descended upon Waco, TX to go heads up against the best competition. Here is part 2 of the Combine Wrap Up which talks about more players who really performed well.

Texas Tech WR prospect Jacob Amie was quite arguably the most prototypically well-rounded receiver at the combine. He posted solid numbers in nearly all measured categories, carries good size, and proved to be a very capable receiver as well. Amie has shown interest in several Big 12 schools, and has also listed Notre Dame as a possibility. One thing is for sure, he will receive some heavy interest from multiple universities before his recruiting is done.

However, perhaps even more impressive was the somewhat unheralded Mesquite WR Krystopher Buerck. Despite having a relatively thin frame, Buerck remained physical and dominated the defensive backs all day long. He posted top-five times in the shuttle and three-cone drill, and nearly cracked the top-five with his 40 time as well. Also, he made some spectacular catches and may have had the best hands of the combine. Look for Buerck’s stock to rise substantially in the coming months, especially if he puts on some size.

Another unheralded star was Fort Bend QB Cotton Turner. Turner appeared to be the second-best pure passer behind Jarrett Lee at the combine. Additionally, an honorable mention goes to Riley Dodge, who shows promise for managing to compete with most of the quarterbacks in attendance in spite of having a year less of experience than the others.

Texas Tech also has the interest of combine attendees Quentin Castille and James Thomas. Castille is a powerful running back who is receiving interest from many schools, and Thomas is a safety out of La Marque who already has received offers from Kansas State and Baylor. Both players have the potential to make an impact wherever they end up, and Red Raider fans should be hoping that Lubbock is that place.
