All-Camp Team: Offense

Taking a look at the top players from the Longhorns' summer camps this month.

QB — 2015 Ricky Town, St. Bonaventure (Calif.)

Perhaps the easiest selection on this list. Town is one of the top quarterbacks in the country, and played like it, displaying a big arm and uncanny accuracy on a number of throws. His level of talent and polish was above every other Longhorn camper, pushing him over strong camp performances from Jarrett Stidham and Chason Virgil.

RB — 2014 D'Onta Foreman,Texas City; 2015 Jay Bradford, Splendora

It's always tough to pick the running back standouts at a camp where they don't have to read holes, break tackles and make guys miss, some of the most important attributes for a running back to have. What you want to see is that they have burst, the feet to make guys miss and the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. Bradford was spectacular in all three of those categories, running a 4.32 40-yard dash and then showing that his speed applied well on the football field, dominating in receiving drills and catching the ball like a wide receiver. Texas City's less-heralded Foreman — his brother Armanti Foreman has more recruiting attention — ran a better-than-expected 4.44 and was the best running back in attendance at the June 2 camp.

WR — 2014 Lorenzo Joe, Abilene Cooper; 2014 Emmanuel Porter, Dallas Lincoln; 2016 Reggie Hemphill, Manvel

What more can you say about Joe: he takes on all comers and goes hard every repetition. Joe showed more polish than you'd expect from a quarterback-by-day player, running great routes and using his body to shield off defenders all day. Porter is a bit more of a raw product, but has elite-level tools with his size, explosiveness and body control. And keep an eye on Hemphill, who's heading into his sophomore year. Hemphill gave the corners defending him — including Texas commitment Jermaine Roberts — all kinds of trouble with his 6-foot-2 size, his speed and his advanced receiving skills. Texas commitment Roderick Bernard also deserves kudos here, as he had breathtaking acceleration in-and-out of his breaks, showing real potential as a slot receiver who can blow the top off coverages. 2015 wideout Kemah Siverand is another one to watch after he had a strong camp as well, running 4.5-flat. DaMarkus Lodge didn't get a chance to go up against much competition, so it was difficult to find him a spot here.

TE — 2015 Jordan Davis, Clear Lake

Great frame for blocking? Check. Athleticism? Check. Soft hands? Double check. Davis put on a show at the Longhorns' June 2 camp, measuring at taller than 6-foot-3 and weighing 245 pounds, running 4.7-flat and displaying potentially the best set of hands at the camp at any position. Just a week or two later, Texas A&M was able to add him to its recruiting class, switching him over from his soft Florida State commitment.

OL — 2014 Terrell Cuney, Jasper; 2014 Zach Ledwik, La Grange; 2015 OL Trevor Elbert, Rockwall-Heath; 2015 Connor Lanfear, Buda Hays; 2015 Maea Teuhema, Keller

Cuney and Teuhema entered the camp as Texas commitments, while Ledwik, Elbert and Lanfear all earned Longhorn offers based on stellar camp performances. Cuney is really athletic and smooth for an offensive lineman at this point. Teuhema showed flashes of why many believe he's the state's top lineman for 2015. Lanfear used his great play to earn a Texas commitment, while Ledwik transitioned great performances at both the Texas and Texas A&M camps into offers from both schools, committing to play in College Station. Elbert measured 6-5 285 and stood out well enough to earn a Longhorn offer in a class that already has three linemen committed. An honorable mention here goes to Columbus product Mason Denley, who worked at tight end, running 4.72, weighing 265 pounds and looking like a future offer.

ATH — 2015 Chris Warren, Rockwall

I had to create an extra category for Warren, though I do think that he could play running back at the next level. I wanted to make sure I saw him in the shuttle to see his feet and how quickly he changed direction. Warren has pitter-patter feet for a guy who weighed in at 225 pounds, and his speed for that size — running 4.5 — is impressive. Based on that size/speed combination, many will want Warren on defense, and he could wind up being 235-240 just as his body matures. But he has the skill set to stick on offense at running back as well.
