Prospects like Darian Hagan Jr., David Ausberry and A.J. Simmons were there.
A quick report from a scout in attendance had Tyquan Knox, the 6-0, 180-pound wide receiver from Crenshaw, as one of the best prospects there. In the event's session-ending "A-Game" scrimmage, Knox came away with game MVP honors. In fact, he was so impressive, this scout considers him one of the best 25 players in California and among the top 3-5 receivers.
Knox hasn't played much football, and hasn't lifted weights, but has a good body at about 6-0 and 180ish. He was considered the best receiver at the Nike Camp in Palo Alto, with such other notables as Ausberry, Rickey Thernarse and DeLaShaun Dean competing at that camp.
The question on Knox has been his speed, running a 4.7 at the Nike Camp. But this scout feels that Knox, without any training in running and having never lifted weights, will get much faster, and already has. He said that he was running away from Hagan and other players at the Beyond 2000 Camp.
And here's the good UCLA-related news. EReoports are that Knox wants to be a Bruin. It's his childhood favorite and where he wants to go. UCLA is recruiting him and while his grades aren't bad, even Knox admitted that he should improve his GPA, and wants to do it specifically to get into UCLA.
