The sizable running back (6-2, 220) impressed all day. Thompkins more than held his own running good routes and catching the ball well. He even flipped over to defense and had an interception.

The 2026 prospect holds early offers from Austin Peay, Tennessee-Martin and Virginia Tech.


The 2025 prospect from Virginia did a good job of making plays on the ball. He was able to use his length to advantage when in coverage but also had solid footwork. Harris used his hands well and played physically when necessary too.


The young 2026 signal caller certainly stood out among the quarterbacks on Friday. He’s got a wiry frame (6-4, 165) right now that will fill out the rest of his high school career. Dailey showed good arm strength and accuracy during drills and one-on-ones.


Sam Hamilton

If you are looking for a young possession receiver, look no further than the 2026 Ohio native. He displayed good route running skills and hands throughout the one-on-one period. Hamilton used his body well to shield defenders and as he continues to add mass, he will be an even tougher matchup.


Dylan Harris is a bigger body at tight end (6-4, 230) but moved well at his size. His athleticism allowed him to get open consistently but when he wasn’t open he was still able to outmuscle defenders. Florida Atlantic is the only offer so far for the 2026 prospect.


The Iowa native has a frame (6-6,215) every college is looking for these days at tight end. He showed off more than a good frame on Friday. He got enough separation on his routes and made some nice catches. He doesn’t hold any offers yet but recruiting attention is sure to pick up.


Khalel Wright
Khalel Wright

It’s tough to believe that Wright doesn’t hold any scholarship offers right now. At 6-foot-1, 180 pounds he’s got enough size to play at the college level. He showed good arm strength but his touch was what impressed me most. Wright will be a name that emerges in the 2025 cycle.


The Virginia native was very good in coverage during the one-on-ones on Friday. The 2025 prospect played bigger than his 5-11, 170-pound frame and came up with a couple nice interceptions. McNeal is a fluid athlete who was an all-conference defensive back in Virginia. He has an offer from Virginia Christian but more interest is on the way.


The 2025 defensive lineman was aggressive off the snap but also had a quick first step. He was a problem for offensive linemen because he combined his quickness with strong hands and pretty good technique for his age. Webster has good size (6-3, 285) and should see a lot more college attention soon.


Austin Pay
Austin Pay

At 6-foot-7, 270 pounds Pay’s a big prospect who displayed a powerful punch during drills. Pay also had good footwork for his age on Friday. As he continues to refine his game and use his hands, his recruiting stock will rise.
