For the second time in as many years, NFL veteran Mark McMillian made a return to his old stomping grounds at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Alabama Regional).
This time around, Crimson Tide alum McMillian was joined by one-time teammates John Copeland and Antonio Langham, among other fan favorites from Tuscaloosa.
Similar to past protocol, what follows is a closer look at a few of the many individuals who were able to turn heads during the workout. So, without further delay, let’s get started.
Trevor Robinson, QB, Park Crossing (AL): The 6-2 and 195-pound sophomore certainly passed the proverbial eye test. Alex Rogers from Rogers (AL) was also worth a mention.
Malik Smith, WR, Prattville (AL): The 6-foot and 170-pound junior nearly stole the show. His future is bright, no question about it and you might’ve heard it here first.
DeAndre Olds, WR, Shades Valley (AL): With a good frame, the 6-2 and 190-pound sophomore caused problems for opponents in the secondary from start to finish.
Russell Weeks, TE, New Brockton (AL): There’s plenty to like about the 6-3 and 215-pound sophomore, and with continued improvement, sky could be the limit for him.
Tremaine Osborne, DB, Park Crossing (AL): The 6-1 and 180-pound junior has received interest from the likes of Memphis, Middle Tennessee State and UT Chattanooga.
Andru Ransaw, DB, Clay Chalkville (AL): South Alabama is among the programs who remain in contact with the 6-1 and 170-pound junior and others figure to follow suit.
Kareem Spruill, DB, Pickens County (AL): Intense, and never one to back down from a challenge, the 5-11 and 165-pound junior was on the winning end of several exchanges.
Reginald McAdams, LB, Shades Valley (AL): Young, and what some might consider inexperienced, the 5-10 and 200-pound sophomore played with the poise of an upperclassman.
Derrick Butler, LB, Stanhope Elmore (AL): The 6-1 and 235-pound junior is heading in the right direction. The path to success is clear. Now, it’s time to stay on the right track.
Mason Taylor, LB, Prattville (AL): With a motor that did not stop, the 5-10 and 205-pound sophomore had one gear, full-speed ahead. No one was going to slow him down.
Chasen Earnhart, OL, Lee Scott Academy (AL): More than just a big body, the 6-4 and 312-pound junior showed surprising athleticism. His name is one to remember.
Matt Whitman, OL, Stanhope Elmore (AL): With no shortage of competition to be found in this particular setting, the 6-3 and 265-pound junior rose to the occasion.
Connor Higbe, OL, Macon East (AL): The 6-3 and 280-pound junior held his own, and then some. The same thing can be said about Nick Canfield from Rogers (AL).
Taylor Henderson, DL, Morgan Academy (AL): A tireless worker, the 6-2 and 260-pound junior hustled all over, regardless of whether it was skills testing or one-on-ones.
Tristen Holcomb, DL, Sardis (AL): The 6-2 and 240-pound junior earned the respect of his peers, and in the process, opened up the eyes of the coaching staff on hand.
Alex Howard, DL, Etowah (AL): Eager to prove that he belonged, the 6-2 and 230-pound junior did just that, along with Ladorian Leonard from Stanhope Elmore (AL).

Additionally, those who did well at this workout, in due time, could be invited to one of the brand’s All-American Bowls held at NFL stadium and nationally broadcast on ESPN’s family of networks.
The games take place at one of several well-known venues: Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field.
Moving forward, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee will consider a number of different factors before making an all-important decision on invites to the All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
