Alabama-Mississippi: Five Up, Two Down
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Day two of the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game
practices took place on Wednesday, with several competition periods allowing for
stars to shine and others to slip up. Here's a look at five players who
impressed and two who had days to forget.
Alabama-Mississippi: Team reports
After taking part in just two practices on Tuesday, the Ole Miss commit showed
off his football IQ by directing teammates on nearly every play Wednesday
morning. But it wasn't just his pre-snap acumen that impressed, Street showed
terrific burst and an excellent ability to cut in the hole and when he puts his
foot in the ground and goes he's tough to catch.
Mobile (Ala.) St. Paul's
The South Carolina commit was on this list for the wrong reasons on Monday after
struggling to find his footing against top-notch competition. That changed on
Wednesday as he had a forced fumble during the team period and was consistently
disruptive in the same setting. When it came time to one-on-ones, Whitfield was
also excellent, using a quick first step and active hands to get by offensive
The 6-foot-7, 305-pound Alabama commitment is by far the biggest player prospect
in attendance and on Wednesday he used his size and strength to dominate on the
defensive line. Despite his size, Davis isn't just another zero-technique
defensive tackle, he's versatile athletic and once he learns some better
technique he could become nearly unstoppable.
The Florida commit showed excellent ball skills on Wednesday, fighting for balls
and at one point turning what looked like a reception into an interception for
his squad. Lenton has good length and fluid hips, something that makes him a
quality prospect to play either corner or safety.
The Memphis commit had a rough day on Wednesday as his team's center struggled
to snap the ball and it appeared to throw off Howard's rhythm. However, even
when he did get good snap Howard struggled with his accuracy. He has good arm
strength but needs to improve his consistency and footwork.
Oxford (Miss.) Lafayette
It was a tough day for the Ole Miss commit as he was tasked with blocking Davis,
all week long. Johnson will need to add some strength if he's going to hold is
own in college as all three players will be the type of talent he will see when
he arrives in Oxford.
