Year in and year out, without fail, there is no shortage of talent at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Atlanta Regional). Naturally, this workout was no different from others.
NFL veteran Ken Stills with NFL veteran trainers Rodney Beasley and Reggie Young were lead instructors. Following a couple conversations, here are a few of the many highlights.
Christian Burks, QB, 2022, Langston Hughes (GA): The 6-foot-2 and 178-pounder did well in this environment, along with fellow underclassman G.J. Turner from Union Grove (GA).
Daba Fofana, RB, 2021, West Forsyth (GA): Big and strong, also fast and quick, the 5-8 and 185-pounder held his own. Same can be said about Kaleb Jackson from Norcross (GA).
Jamill Williams, RB, 2022, Banneker (GA): The 5-9 and 165-pounder possesses plenty of upside. Julius McClellan from Westover (GA) was in the same kind of category, of course.
Corey Barnes, WR, 2021, Mundys Mill (GA): Perhaps the best of the bunch, the 6-2 and 185-pounder already has an offer from South Alabama. Georgia State could be the next one.
Ardarius Benton, WR, 2022, Monticello (GA): The 5-8 and 165-pounder was one of the fastest players at his position. Xavier Brown from Campbell (GA) was not far behind, worth noting.
Dennard Flowers, TE, 2021, Hampton (GA): Once word spread about his effort, South Alabama put on offer in place for the 6-4 and 218-pounder. Others programs figure to follow suit.
Dawson Duncan, OL, 2021, Pepperell (GA): The 6-3 and 265-pounder seemingly was without peer down in the trenches. No real surprise, he has interest from teams in the Ivy League.
Levi Lee, OL, 2021, Central Carrolton (GA): No doubt about it, the 6-4 and 290-pounder passed the eye test. Robby Watson from Forsyth Central (GA) turned plenty of heads, as well.
Kylan Wimbish, DB, 2021, Sandy Creek (GA): The 5-10 and 170-pounder recently visited Georgia Tech and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see other ACC schools jump on the bandwagon.
Omar Pickett, DB, 2021, Cook (GA): Explosive, with a competitive side to boot, the 5-9 and 161-pounder was up for any, and all challengers. Safe to say, he impressed many onlookers.
Cameron Barnes, LB, 2021, Mundys Mill (GA): The 6-foot and 221-pounder has been in contact with a number of potential suitors, including UConn, Georgia Southern and Georgia State.
Logan Estes, LB, 2021, Northgate (GA): With a visit to Mississippi State underneath his belt, the future is bright for the 5-11 and 203-pounder. Reggie Icilien from Dacula (GA) also did well.
