When it comes to athleticism, whether that be speed or strength, there’s always an abundance of both at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (South Florida Regional).
True to form, the most recent workout was nearly the same as all the others before. Plenty of prospects in attendance, in fact, were able to leave a lasting impression.
What follows is a much closer look at several memorable efforts. That is, largely based on the thoughtful evaluations from NFL veteran Ken Stills and NFL veteran trainer.
Jalen Brown, QB, 2021, Academy at the Lakes (FL): The 6-foot-1 and 185-pounder had better size than most, an above-average frame. Most important, a lively arm, too.
Zaire Wilcox, RB, 2021, Citrus (FL): North Dakota State is among those interested in the 5-9 and 172-pounder. Perhaps rightfully so too, given his performance in the setting.
Tre Rancifer, RB, 2021, Gulf Coast (FL): A Conference USA target, the 5-10 and 175-pounder proved to be durable, and once his athleticism catches up to strength, watch out.
Anthony Ballard, WR, 2021, Discovery (FL): The 6-3 and 175-pounder was fast, perhaps more so than anyone at workout. Cai’re Anderson from Spoto (FL) had the same build.
Jamari Fudge, WR, 2021, University Christian (FL): No slouch, the 5-8 and 155-pounder opened up eyes during skills testing and kept everyone’s attention during one-on-ones.
Travis Patten, DB, 2021, Lakewood Ranch (FL): A competitor, and never one to back down from any challenge, the 6-foot and 170-pounder got the better of many exchanges.
Tony Canfall, DB, 2021, Gibbs (FL): The 5-9 and 165-pounder turned heads in man-to-man coverage, same with zone coverage. So did Jordan Dozier from Windermere (FL).
Tae Williams, LB, 2021, Brandon (FL): Difficult to deal with at the second level, the 6-1 and 200-pounder held his own, along with counterpart Angel Alverio from Baker (FL).
Dylan Doughney, OL, 2022, Centennial (FL): The 6-5 and 285-pounder was young, on paper. Still, he played with the poise of an upperclassman. Remember his name.
Grant Gelazin, OL, 2021, University (FL): Relaxed, and not often bothered in the trenches, the 6-3 and 285-pounder earned the respect of more than a few of his peers.
Isaac Tavo, DL, 2021, Land O’Lakes (FL): Inside or outside, the 6-3 and 250-pounder delivered results. Opponents seemingly had no answer on how to effectively stop him.
Xavier Perkins, DL, 2023, Berkeley Prep (FL): It’s only a matter of time before the 6-2 and 195-pounder realize his potential. He’s on the right track, regardless.

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, each participant at the All-American Combine, as well as other impressive prospects, will most likely be provided with details and exclusive membership to Red Zone Prospects (click here).
Individuals will have an all-important star rating, as well as a workout evaluation and HUDL review as part of their profiles, for the recruiting convenience of scouts and coaches all over the country.

Additionally, those who do well in that setting, in due time, could be invited to one of the brand’s 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.
