RCS Miami: Best of the Rest
Shaw showed up to camp without a Rivals profile or any sort of reputation. He then proceeded to jam a number of wide receivers at the line of scrimmage and put on a performance that took anyone watching off guard. He may not have been perfect in coverage, but he was as physical as cornerbacks come and certainly left his mark on the event.
Hallandale Beach (Fla.) Hallandale
Hammond wasn't at his best on Sunday, but even a mediocre day for Hammond is enough to get him noticed. There's a reason the Hallandae (Fla.) High School receiver carries an incredibly long list of scholarship offers, and he reminded everyone of that with three deep receptions that saw him simply outrun defensive backs on go routes. Hammond's hands aren't shabby either. Hammond, who names no leaders for the time being, is in the process of setting up a visit to Ohio State.
Fort Pierce (Fla.) Central
Simmons made his mark in drills, where the camp's linebacker coach sang his praises. He was one of the coaching staff's favorite prospects. So while he didn't stand out during one-on-ones, his build, energy, strength and technique captured the attention of anyone watching the linebacker group.
Miramar (Fla.) Miramar
Nwankwo was up and down all afternoon. The reason he landed on this list, however, is the fact that his highs were as high as anyone's. Some one-on-one reps saw Nwankwo flash light feet and a strong upper body while dominating ranked prospects at the point of attack. And while he had some reps that were less than stellar, he managed to stand out for most of the afternoon.
Miami (Fla.) Southridge
Pinder has incredible height. He could certainly stand to beef up and become more physical, but that doesn't hinder him much at the high school level. He has a nice change of pace for a player of his size and reliable hands that rarely fail him. On Sunday, he looked great on the reps that saw him create deep separation but struggled a little on shorter routes that saw him bumped early.
Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage
Herbert has incredibly violent hands. That was the prevailing lesson about his game on Sunday, anyway. He used his initial punch to knock defenders back but also to make a mark on the camp, during which he put on a mostly impressive performance. Herbert was not the most complete lineman at the camp, but he did some things that showcased what seems to be great potential.
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Despite not being the tallest linebacker around, Jeanty is put together well. He's certainly thick enough to play the middle at the college level and moves well laterally. His agility is what stood out at Sunday's camp, as he covered well and looked relatively smooth in a backpedal for a player of his build. He broke up a couple of passes in one-on-one coverage against faster running backs. Jeanty is expected to commit to Army unless new schools offer in the near future.
Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland
Tatum's mark was made during one-on-ones, where he managed to handle a few bigger prospects. Tatum is thin. He will need to fill out before playing college football, but he has great strength for his size. He also has a frame capable of carrying plenty of increased muscle.
Miami (Fla.) Norland
A Florida commit, Joseph struggled in coverage during one-on-ones but looked the part in drills. He moves well and boasts a solid build equipped with long arms. He moves well laterally and has a quick enough first step when playing downhill. He'll need to polish himself when it comes to dropping into coverage, though.
