Offensive Top Ten
Concord (Calif.) De La Salle
While Kline had a better weekend with the Nike Camp and Elite 11, Houston wasn't that much farther behind him. For Houston, he plays in a run-oriented offense, so in a camp setting, he gets to throw the ball a lot more than he normally does for the Spartans, and you get to see a very good, strong and accurate arm. Houston is a little more reserved than Kline, but he too was making recruiting pitches for Wisconsin, where he verbaled to earlier this month.
Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral|
Neal has been to numerous camps over the years, including Nike Camps, and finally earned an elusive MVP award at Stanford. Neal's an explosive athlete and could play on either side of the ball, and play it well. While his best position in college might be cornerback, Neal is a very talented receiver and he had the number of the cornerbacks and safeties on Sunday.
Fresno (Calif.) Washington Union
Greenberry continues to stake his claim as one of the West's best with another good camp. Greenberry has very good speed, but it's his ability to catch everything thrown to him, the way he can adjust to the ball and his soft hands that stand out.
Line, Corvallis (Ore.)
In a group that included four Scout 300 lineman, it was Seumalo who had the best day, earning MVP honors, which were well deserved. The four-star guard didn't lose a single one-on-one, and ended the day with a pancake where he very simply chucked the defensive lineman he matched up with. Seumalo has very good agility and tremendous strength and his footwork was probably the best of any offensive lineman there.
Rocklin (Calif.) Whitney
Rodrigues has catapulted himself into the discussion for the top quarterback in California, and gives NorCal three stellar prospects in this class. We saw Rodrigues a year ago at the Elite 11 in Berkeley, and since then, he's gotten in better shape while keeping the arm strength and has really improved his accuracy.
Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey
Mickens has been doing track for most of the spring, and had some lingering injuries too, so this was his first camp of the spring and he looked like he hadn't missed a beat. Mickens is smallish but runs tremendous routes and does a great job of using his hands to catch the ball.
Line, San Clemente (Calif.)
Murphy wasn't too far behind Seumalo, though he did lose one-on-one, which surprised everyone. He came back the next rep and dominated the defender. Murphy is long and still a little lean, and you can see there is more room to put on weight. But his athleticism and how low he can get in his stance because of his natural knee bend, shows why so many schools are interested in him.
(Calif.) Buhach Colony
Cochran is a mammoth 330-pounds, but doesn't look sloppy at all and can move really well for a player of his size. He's also got good strength and a strong lower body. He was nearly perfect in his one-on-one's, and though most schools are recruiting him as a center, he can easily play guard in college.
Gate (Calif.) South East|
In the group of backs, Lewis stood out. An electric back, Lewis is still pretty slight, but you can't argue his quickness and shiftiness
Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley
Snubbed a year ago for the Quarterback MVP at the Stanford NFTC, Kline left no doubt this year, earning MVP honors and standing out as arguably the top skill prospect across the board on Sunday. Kline has really blossomed into one of the elite quarterbacks nationally, already holding a strong and accurate arm, but really improving in the other facets of the position- footwork, decision making and touch. Kline also has a pretty magnetic personality and was overheard recruiting guys to Cal, where he's commited.
