With well-rounded coaching staffs all over the country, few match the overall knowledge at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Dallas Regional).
NFL veteran George Teague was lead instructor and had help from one-time professionals Chris Taylor, Michael Ray Garvin and Reggie Young, among others.
In the end, it should be mentioned, the prospects in attendance were the biggest beneficiaries. That said, here’s some needed insight on the many participants.
Austin Ahmad, QB, Northwest (TX): The 6-foot-2 and 195-pound junior did well on the big stage. Old Dominion and Louisiana-Monroe have contacted him, as well. No surprise there.
Dorian Plumley, QB, El Reno (OK): North Texas and Oklahoma State are schools interested in the 6-1 and 190-pound sophomore. Rightfully so given his body of work in the setting.
Ara Rauls, QB, La Vega (TX): The 5-10 and 165-pound sophomore appears to have a bright future ahead. His journey will be worth keeping a close eye on.
Sir Michael Veasley, RB, Life Waxahachie (TX): The 5-11 and 200-pound junior has been in communication with multiple programs, perhaps most notably Navy and UTEP.
Damontrareis Lacy, RB, Lubbock Monterey (TX): SMU and Texas Tech are on the radar for the 5-10 and 180-pound junior and an offer could soon materialize.
DaShaun Davis, RB, McArthur (OK): A bigger type of back, the 5-11 and 206-pound junior turned his share of heads, along with Elijah Golden from Grandview (TX).
Tyler Hairston, RB, Lubbock Cooper (TX): The 5-9 and 185-pound junior opened eyes, with Billy Copeland from Azle (TX) and Kaleb Manel from Lubbock Coronado (TX).
Christian Benson, RB, Parish Episcopal (TX): The 5-7 and 170-pound sophomore went out and held his own, same goes for Kevorian Barnes from San Augustine (TX).
Adonis McCarty, WR, Brownwood (TX): The 5-11 and 175-pound junior has an offer from Tulsa. North Texas and Texas State could be next to step up their efforts.
Malik Gordon, WR, McNeil (TX): Baylor, TCU and Tulsa have jumped on the bandwagon of the 6-1 and 165-pound junior. Other programs figure to follow suit.
Carson Winters, WR, Flower Mound (TX): The 6-1 and 190-pound junior seems to be a target of teams in the Southland Conference, specifically Abilene Christian.
Kareem Coleman, WR, McKinney Boyd (TX): The 5-9 and 165-pound junior could land a scholarship with a school in Conference USA and SMU might be an option.
Dylan Fluellen, WR, Gilmer (TX): With a fair amount of upside, the 6-2 and 180-pound sophomore has his sights set on a couple schools, Oklahoma State or Texas Tech.
Gage Mayfield, WR, Life Waxahachie (TX): The 5-10 and 175-pound junior had speed that surprised observers. Same goes for Bishop Harris from Mildred (TX).
Robert Allen, OL, La Vega (TX): A center, the 6-3 and 295-pound sophomore is heading in the right direction and all signs point to the path being clear.
James Marshall, OL, Tolar (TX): The 6-2 and 313-pound junior was difficult to deal with down in the trenches. He gave opponents trouble, truth be told.
Theo Bryant, OL, Brownwood (TX): The 6-2 and 280-pound junior can play on both sides of the ball, but could be best suited for life on the offensive end.
Fredrick Johnson, DB, Shelton (TX): A one-time understudy of George Teague, the 5-11 and 165-pound junior might stick in the Mountain Western Conference.
Del’Marquise Barnes, DB, San Augustine (TX): Fast and physical, despite what some unfairly perceive as undersized, 5-7 and 160-pound sophomore got it done.
Nick Martinez, LB, Birdville (TX): Arkansas State and Sam Houston State are among many interested in the 5-11 and 205-pound junior. More details to come.
Andrew Williams, LB, Wylie (TX): Delaware State and SMU are in the mix for the 5-10 and 215-pound junior. Worth mentioning, Arizona could be a player.
Trenten James, LB, Life Waxahachie (TX): Strong and long, quick from sideline-to-sideline, the 6-3 and 205-pound junior made plays all over the field.
Brock Ewing, LB, Amarillo (TX): The 6-foot and 185-pound sophomore caused havoc from start to finish. Darius Moore was in the same kind of category.
Ky Thomas, DL, Elkhart (TX): Plenty of hype surrounded the 6-4 and 250-pound junior. He lived up to the hype. McNeese State, Rice and Baylor are interested.
Jacob Lattig, DL, Southlake Carroll (TX): The 6-2 and 225-pound junior made life difficult down in the trenches. His peers won’t soon forget his disruptiveness.
