Arguably the best performance by a player not named MVP for their position at the SoCal NIKE Camp Sunday was wide out Ricky Marvray. The Corona (Calif.) Centennial standout put on a show and should be recruited at the high major level.
It was a solid group of receivers and tight ends on Sunday but no one performed any better than Marvray. The 5-11, 184 pound athlete had maybe the best pair of hands in the camp, showed great athleticism and body control and the speed to run past just about every corner he went up against.
Carson (Calif.) tight end Morrell Presley was named MVP by the WR position coaches and the USC commit had an outstanding day. Presley is a big time prospect and worthy of his top 100 status but on this day, Marvray looked liked the top pass catcher to these eyes and we're not the only ones.
"That kid right there should have gotten MVP," Presley's father Steven Hawkins said. "That kid can play."
A class move by Hawkins but it shows how impressive Marvray was. When you throw in a productive junior season that saw him catch 33 balls for 753 yards and nine touchdowns for one of the state's best teams combined with a 3.8 GPA, in our eyes, Marvray should have double digit offers right now.
"Nope, still waiting for my first offer," Marvray said after the camp. "I'm not sure what the deal is but I'm just going to keep working hard and hopefully good things will happen. I'm getting it done in the classroom too so I'm not sure what else I need to do.
"Right now, my top schools are UCLA, Oregon, UTEP and San Diego State. I'm hearing from all of those schools and hopefully that first offer will roll in before too long."
