ATLANTA – Close to 300 prospects participated in the MVP Camp over the weekend and Scout named its best of the best right here.
Talent was all over the field in Atlanta and some recognized at the end of the day were in the class of 2014. We will cover those guys later in the week, but here is who walked away with awards at the conclusion of the MVP Camp on Friday.
The Award Winners in Atlanta
- 6-5/260 - DE – Monroe (GA) Monroe Area - 2011
Award: Overall MVP/Top 2011 Performer
Camp Report: Tuitt really came out and performed at a higher level than expected of him. He showed a lot of energy, the ability to be coached up, and he learned things on the fly. He improved his hand placement and footwork throughout the first part of the camp during the teaching session before taking things over during the one on ones. Tuitt is one of the most sought after defensive ends in the South and he dominated the guy in front of him throughout the camp on Friday. He was explosive, very strong, and just raw talent with extremely high upside.
- 6-2/202 - DE – Stone Mt. (GA) Stephenson - 2012
Award: Top Underclassman
Camp Report: Jones is a speed rush guy and he really wasn't challenged in the camp until the very end when he had a great battle with top offensive lineman Kyle Harris. Jones' first step is very quick, he really explodes off the ball, and he was able to dip his shoulder and get around the corner in a hurry throughout the camp. He showed a little more versatility in moves than expected as well. He still needs to add weight and get stronger, but he has the frame to support that while keeping his speed, which is his biggest asset.
