Nayquan Wright really ran precise routes and he is a running back who can really catch the ball. He was getting a lot of reps and he was coming out on top all day.” Jesse Smith, Hollywood (Fla.) McArthur ATH

“I like how Nayquan Wright competed so hard every play. He is an explosive player who got open.” – Elijah Moore, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas 4-star WR


Elijah Moore really backed up the talk about being a great route runner. He was explosive and he ran the best routes. I thought he was the best player today.” – Xavier Williams, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade Madonna 4-star WR

Dominick Watt showed he could beat press coverage and then he showed the speed to get separation, too. He had a good day at wide receiver.” George Takacs Naples (Fla.) Gulf Coast 3-star TE

Tavares Kelly ran really good routes and he was electric out there when he got the ball. He is so quick and he is fun to watch.” – Al Blades, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas 4-star DB

“I think the person that was always open was probably Elijah Moore or maybe Dominick Watt. Elijah goes to my school and we have so much chemistry. His cuts are so crisp, he can pretty much get open against anyone. Watt, I like his size and athleticism.” Curt Casteel, 2019 Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas QB


Maurice Smith is a 2019 kid, but he played great today. I left the drills to go watch the offensive line vs. defensive line and he did great. Smith is big, so he has size, but he is also quick for an offensive lineman.” James Cook, Miami (Fla.) Central 5-star RB

“It was Delone Scaife. He knows how to set his feet real well. He knows what he’s doing for sure.” – Patrick Joyner, Homestead (Fla.) Keys Gate 2-star DE

Delone Scaife. That’s just a good all-around o-lineman.” - Demetreius Mayes Jr., Miami (Fla.) Northwestern LB

Delone Scaife. He has strong hands.” – Brian Mondesir, Miami (Fla.) Edison DE

Delone Scaife, he’s great at moving his feet and he’s tough to go against. He’s very strong. I’ve gone against him at other events too and he is always tough,” Kayode Oladela, Miami (Fla.) Edison 3-star DE

Martin Weisz had a good day. He was really working on all the fundamentals that the coaches taught us,” – Zachary Stark, Parkland (Fla.) Douglas OL


Patrick Joyner goes hard and he was pretty quick and strong. I think I did pretty good against him, but he really impressed me.” – Delone Scaife, Miami (Fla.) Killian 3-star OT

Braylen Ingraham and I went head-to-head a few times and he worked outside and inside. After going outside the first rep, he faked outside and went inside, which was a very good move. He really knows how to set up offensive linemen.” Martin Weisz, Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) Benjamin School OT

“It was Rashawn Yates. He was fast. He knows how to use his hands a little bit, too.” - JeJuan Campbell, Pahokee, Fla. OL


Demetries Ford was the toughest for me to get away from. He really played me well in coverage. He stayed on me, he ran with me and he was patient while others went the wrong way against me.” Shaun Shivers, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade Madonna 4-star RB
