Each and every year, seemingly like clockwork, the level of talent gets better and better at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Desert Regional). This time around, it was no different.
NFL veteran Jerome Daniels was the lead instructor, once again. Fellow one-time pro DeVoyius Mark joined him, also Arizona State product Rodney Cox and LSU product Doug Powell.
There were many scholarship-worthy prospects in attendance and many of them can now be considered as possible All-American Bowl candidates for one of the upcoming games later on this year.
Gianni Mascolino, QB, 2023, Coolidge (AZ): Perhaps the most well-known prospect on hand, the 6-foot-1 and 170-pounder has interest from several programs, some in the Pac-12 Conference.
Joshua Holiday, QB, 2023, Peoria (AZ): The 6-2 and 170-pounder earned the respect of his counterparts, with Alfredo Sotelo from Salpointe Catholic (AZ) and Devonte Johnson from Payson (AZ).
Zachary Wallace, RB, 2023, Liberty (AZ): The 5-9 and 185-pounder was quick and fast, strong too. There’s plenty to like about his game. Sterling Harris from Chandler Prep (AZ) also did well.
Giovanni Robinson, WR, 2023, Yuma (AZ): Quick and explosive, with a good set of hands, the 6-foot and 180-pounder opened up some eyes. The future appears to be bright for him.
Jamaal Young, WR, 2023, Marcos de Niza (AZ): The 5-10 and 175-pounder grabbed everyone’s attention during skills testing. No surprise, he continued to excel during the 1v1 session.
Demarion Postell, WR, 2023, Tolleson Union (AZ): Tall and rangy, the 6-3 and 175-pounder turned more than a few heads. Same thing goes for Myseth Currie from Cesar Chavez (AZ).
Jake Weidinger, WR, 2023, Flagstaff (AZ): The 6-3 and 185-pounder did well, along with the likes of Eric Miller from Valley Christian (AZ) and Hyrum Tanner from Empire (AZ).
Adam Bradford, TE, 2023, Valley Christian (AZ): Good size, with a frame equipped for added mass, the 6-4 and 215-pounder delivered a well-rounded effort in this environment.
Layton Vining, OL, 2023, Liberty (AZ): Without much, if any question, the 6-2 and 260-pounder was the premier lineman in the group. His name is certainly one to remember.
Cornell Reed, DB, 2023, Sequoia Pathway (AZ): Quite versatile, and able to play on both sides of the ball, the 5-8 and 170-pounder could very well find a home in the secondary.
Jahme Dawson, DB, 2023, Walden Grove (AZ): The 5-8 and 150-pounder did not back down from anyone or anything. Most times, he was on the better end of the exchanges.
Daltin Stockon, LB, 2023, Payson (AZ): Tough and strong as they come, the 5-10 and 188-pounder impressed the powers that be, along with Jax Adair from Millenium (AZ).
Myles Rush, LB, 2023, Glendale (AZ): The 5-10 and 180-pounder covered running backs and tight ends with the same effectiveness, so did Jordan Mowers from Snowflake (AZ).
Quentin Sweet, LB, 2025, Casteel (AZ): Regardless of class distinction, the 5-11 and 175-pounder was not intimidated by anyone or anything. Watch out for him in the future.
Lamont Carson, DL, 2023, University (AZ): The 6-2 and 215-pounder was difficult to deal and that was all over the field, similar to his peer Cutter Pepper from Show Low (AZ).

Worth mentioning, periodically and often within days, more information about the workout will be added in this space. That said, feel free to check back on a regular basis for the much-needed insight.
Also, most participants at the recent All-American Combine will soon be provided with plenty of additional details on a potential exclusive membership to the invite-only Red Zone Prospects (click here).
Additionally, likely late in the summer, invitations will be extended to one of the brand’s upcoming All-American Bowls held at NFL stadium and nationally broadcast on ESPN’s family of networks.
Games take place at Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium, Falcons’ Mercedes Benz Stadium, Texans’ NRG Stadium or Jaguars’ EverBank Field, among other venues.
Moving forward, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee will consider a number of different factors before making any decision on potential invites to the All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
