Combine Hits The Carolinas

For the fifth year, the Combine Tour will stop in North Carolina. This year, Fox Sports will be filming all of the action.

The combine will be held on Sunday April 26 at West Charlotte High School and is invitation only. Many of the top prospects in the Carolinas have already accepted their invite.

Each participant will be measured (height, weight, reach, vertical jump, and broad jump), and electric timed (40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, and L-cone). They will also partake in position-oriented drills and one-on-one competition.

The Combine's alumni from the Palmetto State include DE Cliff Matthews, S Mark Barnes, CB Charles Whitlock, CB Stephon Gilmore, and S Devonte Holloman among others.

Last year we saw guys like Greer High TE Desmond Parks who is already enrolled at Florida as an early graduate blow up. Other prospects who really stood out last year from the Palmetto State are Dorman OL Brandon Thomas who absolutely set the combine on its ear with his outstanding performance. 2010 Daniel High CB/WR DeAndre Hopkins also showed the world why we had him ranked so highly as he is now already a verbal commit to the Clemson Tigers. was also able to see 2010 standouts DT A.J. Cann and DE Justin Henderson before anyone else could evaluate them. The duo now holds 30+ and 10+ scholarship offers respectively just a year later after some strong performances as underclassmen in Charlotte.

With a chance to compete against only the very best prospects from both Carolinas this is an elite combine where stars are born and college coaches are scouring our evaluations and results looking for top prospects and those diamonds in the rough. FOX Sports and will be filming the action from this year's combine as well.

To receive an invitation, a coach recommendation is required. Contact Miller Safrit ( or 800-553-8127).
