Jake Raulerson - Celina – no player impressed his fellow campers more than Raulerson. If guys didn't know who he was, they asked, if they did, they would rave about him being only a sophomore. At just 230, this offensive tackle has a lot of food to put down in the future, but already holds his own in the trenches.
QB.) Darrack Harger – Charles Page – Harger is very smooth in the pocket and has the size already to play at the next level. He throws a tight ball and has a very quick release. He reminds me of SMU quarterback Kyle Padron on the run. Not the fastest guy, but a quarterback who can get a tough five to six yards a play.
RB.) Russell Hansbrough – Bowie - Hansbrough's forty time wasn't the fastest of all the backs (4.7 electronic), but he did look quicker than Skyline's David Greene and DeSoto's Devin Rushing, who were also in the "A" group list at the position. At just 5-foot-8, he runs hard and has a solid upper frame. He benched 185 pounds 15 times, which was more than a lot of lineman.
WR.) Kiante Griffin – Hebron – Griffin is as smooth as advertised on the field, so it's amazing the Scout.com 4-star player doesn't have any offers. With rumors circulating that the junior is an academic risk, he showed he was the best receiver in attendance. Not only did he pull down balls he shouldn't have got in 1-on-1s, he also posted a forty time of 4.77 electronic, which was good for the top 10% of all (229 players) in attendance.
TE.) Christian Morgan – Prestonwood Christian - He's not going to beat anyone in a foot race, his electronic forty today was 5.22, but Morgan shows great control with his huge frame (6-foot-4, 240 pounds) and great hands. He didn't drop one pas today. He can go up to get the ball and doesn't mind contact in the air. On more than one occasion the defender just bounced off him. Morgan has a handful of schools recruiting him and would probably have more if he was at a big school in the DFW area.
OL.) Jake Raulerson – Celina - See MVP description or visit:
DL.) Michael Richardson – DeSoto – Besides for Raulerson, nobody was able to slow down Richardson in 1-on-1s. With him missing most of the morning testing does he deserve to be on the combine team? Probably not. But, success in 1-on-1s can't be ignored.
LB.) Aaron Hinsley – Aledo - Just a sophomore, the linebacker was 6-foot and weighed 183 pounds. He will need to work on his speed (4.94 electronic forty), but he showed ability to change directions well in the shuttle and cone drills. He also did a nice job in 1-on-1s, covering running backs out for passes.
DB.) Bryson Echols – DeSoto – The junior had one goal heading into the day. To get a All-American Under Armour bid to play in Florida. He earned it, proving on this day he was the best defensive back on the field.
