Citrus Combine Recap -- Part 2

We've already looked at the linemen…now it's time for the glamour positions. The quarterbacks, wideouts, running backs, defensive backs and linebackers were out in full force at Citrus College on Saturday and several stood out. Here's a look at who did well and who opened some eyes with some very solid play.

College of Sequoias QB Arkelon Hall He transferred from Washington State following the season and is fully recovered from an injury he suffered during fall camp last year. He's got a great arm and put the ball right on the money on several throws. He's in a heavy competition for the starting spot at COS, but if he gets it, he has the size and skills to be an effective signal-caller at the next level.

Santa Ana QB Mark Iddins – He's one of the top signal-callers in JC football this year and he showed why when he threw a frozen rope to a receiver all the way across the field. He ran well and also had a commanding presence among the numerous egos on the field.

Golden West QB Greg Obie He isn't very big (5-10, 175), but he showed a big arm and a lot of confidence. Don't be surprised to see his name pop up on the radars of teams as the season gets underway.

El Camino WR Corey Surrency All the accolades he's received are warranted. He's just a physical presence and just reveled in the competition on the field all day. He ran a 4.54 forty at 6-4, 214 pounds and showed excellent hands all day. He's also someone who has a magnetic personality and he was recently offered by Oklahoma and LSU and now Florida State is in the picture. Colorado is where he's committed to, but they are going to have to fend off some heavy competition in order to lock him up.

Compton WR Jeremy Lafrance He's got a solid frame (6-1, 199) and he showed excellent quickness and route-running ability. He was a multi-purpose threat for Compton last year and this year the coaching staff expects big things.

Compton WR/DB Chris Williams He plays both ways for Compton, but his final destination will be defensive back. He showed excellent quickness and did well in the position and one-on-one drills.

Los Angeles Harbor WR Deryn Bowser Bowser had a great day catching the ball. I didn't get his forty-time down, but he was a player that definitely showed well in the one-on-ones. He's got lots of attention coming his way from schools across the country and he's a player that will be coveted this fall.

El Camino WR Verran Tucker He gets overshadowed by Surrency, but he's a valuable playmaker that has several offers to his name. He ran very well and showed why he's such a hot commodity with his quickness and precision route-running.

Orange Coast WR Nathan Barnett Barnett recently started to hear from several schools in the WAC and he's a playmaker from just about anywhere in the offensive formation. He showed strong hands and great quickness. Expect his stock to rise in the coming months.

Cerritos WR Deangelo Mingo He ran a blistering 4.25 in the forty and generally ran good routes throughout the afternoon session. His hands were good as well and I expect him to see teams' interest increase in the near future.

El Camino RB Tavares Pressley I spoke with Pressley after he burned up the field by running consecutive sub-4.5 forties. He showed good hands catching the ball and also toughness when he was challenged in the air. Pressley just got a verbal offer from Nebraska last week and he could see a written offer this coming week if they like his transcripts.

College of Sequoias RB Seth Smith He ran well – 4.40 and 4.36 forties – and his coaches love his abilities with the ball in his hands. From the limited looks I got of him, he caught the ball well out of the backfield.




Fullerton LB Steven Downs Downs was solid all day. He ran a 4.59 forty and showed excellent route-recognition when he was in the one-on-ones. He's also got an excellent frame and could easily see his stock rise this summer.

El Camino LB Josh Berard The Colorado commit lived up to expectations in the one-on-ones and he has a great frame and he's also very cut. He ran well and could easily see some more offers from schools, but he says that the Buffaloes have his loyalty.

College of Sequoias LB Ryan Parks He was one of the fastest linebacker on the field and he ran a 4.48 in the forty at 220 pounds. Parks has a great frame and showed excellent quickness and coverage skills as well.

El Camino CB Lamar Chapman He committed to Utah earlier in the week and showed excellent burst and solid coverage skills while manning up against some of the top wideouts in attendance.

College of Sequoias CB Traye Simmons He signed with Clemson out of high school, but ended up at Sequoias when he didn't qualify. He tore it up in the one-on-ones and also ran a 4.25 forty time. He's going to be big-time this year.

Mt. San Antonio DB Brandon Lomax He looks like a safety and ran well – 4.5 forty – before the one-on-ones. Lomax is a bit light (5-11, 180), but he has the frame to add some weight and be a solid coverage safety at the next level.
