Five-Star: Top offensive performers

Sksr3e2sy9iroeehkj8k
Jjsbdepkgmunk6xjl3mt
The 6-foot-4, 193-pound wideout showed good body control to come down with the football even when he wasn't all that open. Grimes displayed great concentration near the sideline to keep his feet in bounds and was smooth throughout the session, proving once again why he's one of the more highly regarded receivers in the country.

OL
Jedrick Wills (2017)
Lexington (Ky.) Lafayette
Wills lined up at right tackle and took control over almost every defensive end and every kind of defensive end, too. Fast guys trying to get the edge were handled. Power players attempting to go right through Wills or ripping inside were taken care of as well. The 2017 prospect has nice size, excellent feet, he sets well and then extends his arms and controls almost every rep.
4
TE
Isaac Nauta
Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy
Dyjiowvjk7sut9i59ahg
The Florida State commit caught some linebackers off guard with his speed and he was assertive when the ball came his way. Nauta has strong hands and great hand-eye coordination that gives him the ability to make over-the-shoulder grabs with ease. The 6-foot-4, 239-pound prospect certainly backed up his lofty No. 1 ranking among tight ends.
5
OL
Gregory Little
Allen, Texas
Little is the top-rated offensive tackle nationally and he showed it during the one-on-one session. The five-star prospect is technically sound, he sets very well, gets off the snap quickly and then uses his hands and feet to take advantage of every defensive end. The Texas A&M commit especially showed his toughness against four-star Kendell Jones, who accidentally hit Little in the face during a rep but Little stayed engaged, won the rep and took care of business time and again.
6
WR
Sam Bruce
xFort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas
Nys6rqdr6qp3crj9ums0
Bruce is electric. He cuts on a dime, doubles up cornerbacks all the time and in one-on-one situations he's virtually unstoppable on a consistent basis. He's undersized, but also physical and doesn't get pushed around. The Miami commit shows off excellent hands. Separation against anybody is rarely a problem and he's good on short, intermediate and especially deep routes. Bruce regularly torches linebackers in the slot and corners trying to stay with him.
7
OL
Baveon Johnson
Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson
Xexl2v0owof2k8vons78
All eyes were on Jones heading into the event, but Johnson was the one that raised some eyebrows during the one-on-one portion of camp Saturday. Johnson contained the 6-foot-5, 360-pound Jones by keeping a solid base and moving his feet to stay in front. Johnson also showed off a strong punch and got off the ball quicker than most.
8
OL
Michael Onwenu
Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech
Srlfd7aijsogz1fbobvb
The 6-foot-4, 368-pound offensive guard was impenetrable on the interior. Onwenu has a strong upper body and moves his arms well to keep defensive linemen from dictating the pressure. The recent Michigan commit played with good leverage and kept a solid base as he fought off the rush.
9
WR
T.J. Chase
Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy
Fxnvu0e3ws2nwueku2st
Chase was very fast and changed directions extremely well given how quickly he was moving down field. He has great balance that allows him to stay low through routes and explode past cornerbacks. Chase wasn't just elusive -- he also was very reliable as a pass catcher and made some highlight catches near the sideline.
10
ATH
Mecole Hardman
Bowman (Ga.) Elbert County
The four-star receiver moved well in open space and looked very comfortable against press coverage. Hardman looked like he welcomed the pressure and appeared to be at ease through his routes, showing confidence in his ability to eventually get open and make a play. He made some spectacular catches up the middle.
11
OL
Terrance Davis
Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha
Pcstzwh91oghztf3e0ba
Davis plays with a mean streak and as an interior offensive lineman, that is a perfect situation. The four-star prospect lets nothing by him. He is tough, fierce, competitive and just keeps grinding. Davis has a tremendous punch and great footwork, so he anchors and stuns defensive tackles so they cannot get any movement toward the backfield.
12
WR
Trevon Sidney
La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat
Sidney continued his stellar offseason with another solid showing against top-of-the-line competition. He was explosive as a downfield threat, beating a couple cornerbacks with a post route, and he also made some flashy one-handed catches during individual drills.
13
RB
Khalan Laborn (2017)
Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes
Zkvhpyrggkwpul8xaol7
Laborn looked good in drills. He was fast and elusive, cut well and was sharp all around. Then the one-on-one drills started and the four-star prospect really stepped it up in a big way. Not only did Laborn burn a bunch of linebackers, but he ran great routes and showed excellent hands with at least two fingertip catches on deep balls. For an underclassman running back, Laborn showed phenomenal speed and hung with players a year older with no problem.
14
WR
Tyler Vaughns
La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat
Nsmqmqu1qungdfxkwbo4
Fluidity and soft hands have been the biggest bright spots for Vaughns this offseason and he continued that trend Saturday during the one-on-one portion of camp. The lanky receiver created separation and caught everything thrown his way.
15
WR
DeKaylin Metcalf
Oxford, Miss.
Nhsc8gtb87mceqxr9h3r
Metcalf was deceptively quick and repeatedly beat cornerbacks with double moves to get open. He was dominant in one-on-ones and tremendously smooth in individual drills, especially given his 6-foot-2, 197-pound frame.
16
WR
Elijah Stove
Niceville, Fla.
Zti6xarkhncl4dmqmnty
More than nearly any receiver at the event, Stove is a smooth route runner who separates from receivers and can make tough catches as well. There were times when the Auburn commit took some routes off or couldn't get open, but most likely he would break open and then catch an easy pass since he opened up so much room between him and the cornerback. There are a lot of Florida receivers here and Stove was one of the best.
17
WR
Ahmir Mitchell
Egg Harbor City (N.J.) Cedar Creek
Mitchell really stood out during the drill portion of camp, separating himself with explosive speed and he made a bunch of tough one-handed catches. He is a big receiver with a lot of ranginess and he can create space against most defensive backs. Mitchell was a little too quiet during the one-on-one session, but he still made some nice plays and had a strong showing throughout the day.
18
WR
Binjimen Victor
Coconut Creek, Fla.
Rd5mcancn9jip2cveb6n
Victor is thin (6-4, 173), but he has a tremendous catch radius because he has such long arms. The four-star is wiry, but he doesn't get pushed around by cornerbacks and he's surprisingly athletic. Victor looks like a lanky small forward in basketball that moves very well at wide receiver. He can separate from corners and even if he can't get a lot of space, he is always in contention to catch the pass because of his length and size.
