Similar to many times in recent history, NFL veteran trainer Rodney Beasley was the lead instructor during the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Mid-Atlantic Super) at Washington Commanders’ Training Facility in Richmond (VA). He was joined by several former professionals, as well.
Although there were many scholarship-worthy prospects in attendance, numerous others fit in that category. Below is a preview of some of the top performers, all who can now be considered as possible All-American Bowl candidates for one of the upcoming games later on this year.
Mason Cain, QB, 2023, West Stokes (NC): The 6-foot and 185-pounder could attract the attention of schools in the Southern Conference. He’s heading in the right direction. Monitor the situation, regardless.
Elijah Farmer, RB, 2023, Clover (SC): Georgia Southern has inquired about the 5-10 and 190-pounder. Others just might follow suit.
Michael Thomas, RB, 2023, Nansemond River (VA): The 5-10 and 205-pounder looks like a possible good fit with a team located in the Colonial Athletic Association, perhaps.
Jordan Tapscott, WR, 2023, Kettle Run (VA): The 6-1 and 176-pounder was on the official roster, but unable to attend the workout. Kent State, Liberty and Towson are interested.
Colby Taylor, WR 2023, Deep Run (VA): Also on the official roster, but unavailable, the 5-10 and 165-pounder has talked with Army, Harvard, Penn and Yale.
Jason Lindsay, WR, 2023, Baltimore Poly (MD): Delaware State and Elon are on the radar of the 5-10 and 175-pounder. The feeling seems mutual, worth nothing.
Bandon Raysor, WR, 2023, Catawba Ridge (SC): Mercer and Wagner have seen something they like in the 5-10 and 175-pounder. This situation will be interesting.
Zavian Oates, WR, 2023, Eastern Wayne (NC): With a high ceiling, Air Force and Navy have kept the lines of communication open with the 5-9 and 160-pounder.
Lewis Prempeh, WR, 2023, South Lakes (VA): Good size, speed and strength, even better hands, the 6-2 and 180-pounder is a leader. Both on and off the field, too.
Christian Lyons, WR, 2023, Thomas Dale (VA): Long and lean, yet quick and fast, the 6-3 and 175-pounder appears destined to play somewhere on Saturdays.
Grant Egan, OL, 2023, North Stafford (VA): The 6-4 and 270-pounder has his sights set on Colonial Athletic Association, perhaps most notably James Madison.
Steven Hamby, OL, 2023, Statesville (NC): Nearly a finished product, the 6-5 and 285-pounder has kept in contact with teams from the American Athletic Conference.
Jason Creech, OL, 2023, South Guilford (NC): Despite a somewhat minor injury, the 6-5 and 260-pounder worked though things and put his best foot forward.
Donte Lipscomb, OL, 2023, Eastern Guilford (NC): Big and strong, with vastly improved athleticism, the 6-4 and 330-pounder was difficult to deal with.
Isreal Terry, DB, 2023, Vance (NC): With ongoing talks with multiple teams in the ACC, among other conferences, the future is bright for the 5-10 and 180-pounder.
Kalib Davis, DB, 2023, Cherokee Trail (CO): A Big Sky Conference target, the 5-10 and 168-pounder made the trip across the country. It was worth the mileage, too.
R.J. Brown, LB, 2023 East Forsyth (NC): With feelers from the Mid-American Conference (MAC), with Miami Ohio out in front, the 6-foot and 212-pounder did well.
Shane Eller, LB, 2023, Reed (VA): The 5-9 and 185-pounder could very well find a future home with a school located somewhere in the Colonial Athletic Association.
Elijah Brooks, DL, 2023, Louisa County (VA): The 6-2 and 280-pounder has communicated with Buffalo and Kent State. Virginia could be a game-changer though.
Damon Bremer, DL, 2023, Union Pines (NC): Each and every time, seemingly without fail, the 6-2 and 225-pounder improves. He’s destined to play on Saturdays.
Editor’s Note: When it comes to statistics from the nationwide series of All-American Combines, such as the most recent one, we’ve got you covered. For the numbers, look no further (click here).
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.
