US Army AA Combine: Top Houston Ballers

Update from the US Army All-American Combine. Here are a few notes from some of the top players from the Greater Houston area who performed in San Antonio. Check it out.

LB Trevon Randle, Clear Springs
Out of all in attendance, Randle is the complete linebacker. He has good stance and start, and when he breaks he will make a play on the ball. Had a couple of interceptions on the day. Very fast and smooth laterally and simply finds a way to make plays.

DT Desmond Jackson, Westfield
After watching Tank Rules the Combine, there should be no questions at all as to why Jackson made the list. In fact, he is the list.

TE Max Stevenson, Klein Oak
In one-on-one drills, the play of Stevenson shined on multiple occasions. With his long stride and rangy body, he used all of that to his advantage to gain separation. By outside appearance, one may think that Stevenson has more a receiver type body, which he does. But has no trouble mixing it when getting jammed by bigger and stronger linebackers. 

In one series in particular, he lined up against one of the nations best in Andre Sturdivant from Glenville (OH). These two looked as though they were going to war with each other. Stevenson finally gained separation and made a diving catch down the left sideline. Impressive.

QB Conner Smith, Fort Bend Travis
There were plenty of quarterbacks on hand, but one who caught the attention of many, including a FOX Sports executive, was Smith. Slant route, fade or the out route, Smith was on target. He showed good judgment on when to put zip on his passes and when to use the right amount of touch.
