Pac-12, Big Ten, SEC commits fill West Semper Fi Top 5 offense

Jan. 5 -- A look at the top players on offense during the week of practice for the West at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.

Practice is over and just a Saturday walk-through awaits before Sunday's Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl at the Stubhub Center in Carson, Calif. 

For the West, it was not necessarily the top prospects who had the best week of practice. National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins was on hand at each of the practices, and he came up with the top five performers on offense during the three days of practice.

Top 5

Greg Biggins says: "Sean Auwae was the best offensive line every day. The Vanderbilt commit was the most consistent, most versatile. He will play center or guard in college, but he took some reps with the tackles and was good. He did everything really well. He's a strong kid, physical. I talked to the West's offensive line coach, and he said of all the guys, he is probably the guy who could come in and play as a true freshman."


Greg Biggins says: "J.D. Spielman, the Nebraska commit, was the most consistent receiver. He's undersized but explosive. He has good hands, is really quick off the ball, so he's tough to jam. He can turn guys around and again, for a guy who plays part-time at receiver, he showed some pretty natural pass-catching hands."


Greg Biggins says: "Wisconsin commit A.J. Taylor was the best running back, by far. He's actually going to play receiver in college, but he ran the ball. He's got a great frame, a great burst, really quick. He makes people miss, he has top-end speed. He was the total package. I liked him a lot."


Greg Biggins says: "Quarterback Dillon Sterling-Cole was the most consistent quarterback. He's committed to Arizona State. He has all the skills. I really like his size, his frame. He's going to put on weight. He's athletic enough to get out of the pocket and make plays with his legs ,but he has a tight release and throws a nice ball. He spins it really well, is accurate. Again, he does it all. He's really, really consistent."


Greg Biggins says: "Henry Hattis, the Stanford commit and offensive lineman. He got better every day. The first day he really struggled. The other two days he was dominant. He was the best offensive tackle, by far. The offensive line coach loved him. He has great size, a great frame, was physical. He's a guy who has upside of the charts."


Honorable Mention

Greg Biggins says: "UCLA commit Theo Howard struggled the first day catching the ball, but the last two days he was really good. Friday, he was the best receiver for the West. They really used him. When he can catch the ball consistently, he't got that burst and that explosiveness to make plays down the field. He was playing up to his ranking."
