Given an opportunity not many others have in this part of the country, several individuals took advantage of their chance on the big stage during the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Oklahoma Regional).
NFL veteran Seneca Wallace was the lead instructor, and although there were a number of impressive prospects in this group, what follows is a closer look at some of the notables at East Central University (OK).
Trevor Lorenz, QB, 2022, Noble (OK): A bit young, yet with plenty of upside, the 6-foot-3 and 175-pounder was accurate. Perhaps more impressive, was his athleticism.
Zy Gravitt, QB, 2021, Wichita Falls (OK): The 6-2 and 180-pounder did well, along with Kane Donovan from John Marshall (OK) and Ethan Lollar from Frisco Memorial (TX).
Kadian Forbis, RB, 2021, Grove (OK): Quick and fast, with above average strength, the 5-10 and 170-pounder did a little bit of everything. Most of it well, worth mentioning.
Trevor Mitchell, RB, 2021, Pawnee (OK): The 6-2 and 175-pounder held his own and then some. Lane McKee from Lindsay (OK) had a similar build and skill set.
Shea Dan, WR, 2021, Tulsa Union (OK): Based on a well-rounded effort in this environment, it’s only a matter of time before the 6-4 and 170-pounder is playing on Saturdays.
Dondi King, WR, 2021, Carl Albert (OK): The 6-1 and 195-pounder opened up plenty of eyes, with Ronnie Thomas from Owasso (OK) and Elijah Reed from Jones (OK).
Lance Petermann, OL, 2021, Stillwater (OK): The 6-5 and 270-pounder has an offer from Eastern Michigan. Kansas and Oklahoma might emerge as players, too.
Blake Millspaugh, OL, 2021, John Marshall (OK): The 6-5 and 340-pounder dominated, at times. That said, East Carolina and Oklahoma State could be potential destinations.
Jeffrey Paddyaker, OL, 2022, Cache (OK): Forget about the fact that the 6-2 and 320-pounder is an underclassman. The future is bright for him, no question about it.
Landen Lehenbauer, OL, 2021, Norman North (OK): Heading in the right direction, with steady focus on improvement, the 6-4 and 250-pounder has what it takes to succeed.
Caleb Caylao, LB, 2021, Tulsa Union (OK): Truly a competitor, and never one to back from a challenge, there was a lot to like when it comes to the 6-foot and 198-pounder.
Jack Hawver, LB, 2021, Hutchinson (KS): The 6-foot and 200-pounder grabbed everyone’s attention with skills testing. It was more of the same once the one-on-one’s started.
Hunter Birmingham, LB, 2021, Putnam City North (OK): Big and physical, the 6-foot and 220-pounder did well. Same thing goes for Tyler White from Southmoore (OK).
Anthony O’Guinn, DB, 2021, Tecumseh (OK): Gritty and tough, the 5-10 and 165-pounder was on top of his game, regardless of whether it was man or zone coverage.
Nathan Winningham, DB, 2021, Glenpool (OK): The 6-foot and 165-pounder seems to have the pieces of the puzzle in place. His name is one to remember. You heard it here first.
Ethan Downs, DL, 2021, Weatherford (OK): An Oklahoma commit, there was tons of hype surrounding the 6-4 and 240-pounder. He lived up to the advanced billing, too.
Nathan Ruhman, DL, 2021, Guthrie (OK): A target of teams in the Ohio Valley Conference, the 6-4 and 260-pounder hoped to make a statement and the message was received.
Jeremiah Major, DL, 2021, Millwood (OK): The 6-3 and 225-pounder turned heads with Tsiah Dorn from Tulsa Union (OK) and Marlee Forsberg from Tulsa Union (OK).
