With, perhaps some of the top athletes in the country in attendance, and similar to year’s past, many prospects impressed at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Southeast Super).
For whatever reason, this part of the country always seems to deliver on the hype, largely based on the collection of talent from Florida, but also Georgia, among other Southern states.
NFL veteran trainer Rodney Beasley was lead instructor this time around, and along with a staff of fellow one-time professionals, what follows is a look at the individuals who stood out.
Mason Cox, QB, Porter Ridge (NC): The 6-2 and 215-pound senior was expected to hold his own. And he sure did. Same thing can be said for Luke Morgan from Winter Springs (FL).
Gabe Weldon, QB, Middleton (FL): The 6-5 and 215-pound senior looked the part, also played the part. Phillip Shaffer from McCarther (FL) also deserved a mention.
Josiah Cotton, RB, Mount de Sales Academy (GA): Memphis and Western Carolina are among those to express varied levels of interest in the 5-11 and 205-pound senior.
Ke’Shawn Hughes, RB, Palatka (FL): The 5-10 and 170-pound senior did well, with Jakobe Russell from Montgomery County (GA) and Keyaris Cash from Arden (NC).
Wreylon Moye, WR, John Paul II (FL): The 5-9 and 150-pound senior turned heads, with Noah Cox from Rabun Gap (GA) and Dawson Arnold from Gleason (TN).
Tyzaun Ladet, WR, Dekalb County (TN): The 6-1 and 173-pound junior grabbed attention, with Colby Fuller from Hartford (AL) and Tommy Tight from Trinity Prep (FL).
Nick Engler, TE, Treasure Coast (FL): The 6-3 and 250-pound senior had good size and speed, particularly for his size. With above-average hands, the future is bright.
Connor Lenczden, OL, Wiregrass Ranch (FL): A man among boys, at times, the 6-7 and 260-pound senior did just about whatever he pleased down deep in the trenches.
Anthony Wilson, OL, Rains (TX): It’s only a matter of time before the 6-5 and 280-pound junior taps in to some of his immense potential. Then, after that, sky’s the limit.
Christian Dukes, DB, Miami Southwest (FL): The 6-1 and 188-pound senior has an offer from Louisiana Tech. South Florida could be next to jump on the bandwagon.
Damarcus Davis, DB, Randolph County (AL): Never one to back down from a challenge, the 5-9 and 190-pound senior did well, with Najei Snyder from Pine Ridge (FL).
Alex Atkins, LB, Carbon Hill (AL): Alabama-Birmingham and Florida Atlantic are just a couple of possible future college destinations for the 6-foot and 205-pound senior.
Ian Schoenwetter, LB, Port Orange (FL): We would not be the least bit surprised to see the 6-foot and 205-pound senior develop as a target of multiple teams in the ACC.
Gavin Ransaw, DL, Sparkman (AL): When a decision might need to be made about college, Alabama-Birmingham would be a good fit for the 6-2 and 305-pound senior.
Justice Williams, DL, Cambridge Christian (FL): There’s a chance, when all is said and done, the 6-3 and 290-pound junior might turn out to be the best of the entire bunch.
Editor’s Note: A number of prospects performed extremely well in this particular setting and all of them will be considered for a possible invitation to the brand’s All-American Bowl.
When it comes to stats on participants from the 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 likely within days, more information about the workout will be added in this space. Feel free to check back on a regular basis for the much-needed insight.
As mentioned above, the goal is participate in the All-American Bowl, four of them, each at NFL stadium and nationally broadcast on ESPN’s family of networks or Impact Football Network.
Games take place at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes Benz Stadium, as many venues served as host in the past.
Moving forward, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee will consider a number of different factors before making any type of decision on potential invites to the All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
