Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Miami: Top underclassmen
MIAMI -- The Rivals 3 Stripe Camp presented by adidas in Miami was held Sunday with several of the nation’s top players turning out to compete. There were many outstanding performances turned in on both sides of the ball, and plenty of them came from the younger players in attendance.
Here’s a breakdown of the top underclassman performers.
Recruiting wrap: Bryant is waiting for his first offer.
Performance: Bryant is only a freshman, but he really held his own in Miami. He flashed quickness off the ball and when he did not win with that, he fought until the whistle blew and won a couple times late. He was relentless and he worked his hands well for a young defensive lineman.
Recruiting wrap: Florida, Florida A&M, Syracuse and West Virginia have offered.
Performance: It was a strong group at wide receiver, specifically in the 2018 class, and Dunmore's name kept popping up all day. He was strong in the drills with his ability to go get the ball and to stretch out for passes away from him, then he was smooth in his routes and showed the ability to get separation down the field. His hands were consistent as well.
Recruiting wrap: Ford is waiting on his first offer.
Performance: Ford was praised by his fellow competitors for his speed and technique during one-on-ones. He showed good coverage skills, even against some of the camps shiftiest wide receivers and wasn’t one to make bad gambles. He’s a player to watch going forward.
Recruiting wrap: Georgia and Texas A&M are his two biggest offers early.
Performance: Fox has a good frame for an offensive tackle. He has long arms, he is light on his feet, and although he is raw in technique, he won much more than he lost. He moves well, he showed patience and he is an offensive lineman who continued to shine throughout this camp.
Recruiting wrap: Ford holds offers from FAU, FIU, Marshal, USF and others.
Performance: Ford checked out of drills for the most part but turned it on when one-on-one work started. He’s undersized, but his speed and acceleration are made to shine in events like this. He was a handful for linebackers and can likely help a college team in the speed department. He does not have an ideal college build, which may hold him back during the recruiting process, but schools like his burst.
Recruiting wrap: Ingraham has offers from Georgia, Iowa State and Wisconsin.
Performance: Ingraham drew praise from his peers after showing a nice ability to adjust and improve as one-on-ones went along. He showed that he has a vast arsenal of moves and put them to good use while getting better as the day moved along.
Recruiting wrap: Kancey holds an offer from Rutgers
Performance: Miami Northwestern sent an impressive group of linemen to the event and Kancey, a 2019 prospect, showed signs of promise. He showcased incredible strength for an underclassmen and won a rep using an quick rip move not often seen from a defensive tackle. He could develop into an impressive prospect in the year ahead.
Recruiting wrap: Knighton is awaiting his first offer.
Performance: Knighten was one of the day’s most pleasant surprises and looked impressive in the cat-and-mouse drill. He carried that momentum into one-on-one work where he made a few impressive plays His strength is his change of direction, which he showed off early and often.
Recruiting wrap: Lucas has offers from Auburn, Florida, Kentucky and others.
Performance: Lucas was one of the most impressive offensive linemen at the event, regardless of age. He’s listed at 6-foot-4, 327 pounds and has a wide frame that makes it tough for defenders to get by. Depending on how he develops, he looks like he could play guard or tackle at the next level.
Recruiting wrap: Richardson has offers from FAU, FIU and Toledo.
Performance: Richardson really impressed with his arm strength, fitting the ball into tight windows and also showing an ability to let it fly deep. Some schools see Richardson as more of an athlete at the next level who can play multiple positions, but he proved that he has the arm to play quarterback.
Recruiting wrap: Florida, Georgia, Miami, Ohio State and Wisconsin among others have offered. He is still open, but he is eyeing a visit to Ohio State soon.
Performance: Sanguinetti is a fluid athlete who moved well through drills and was solid in coverage. His length came into play in coverage and it helps him in recovery down the field. He was solid in technique, he took on some top wideouts and he held his own for a sophomore.
Recruiting wrap: Turner is waiting for his first offer.
Performance: Just a rising sophomore, Turner impressed with his ability to get open, even when facing off against some of the event's top defensive backs. He already has good size and looks like he should be able to add more muscle to his frame without losing some of the quickness that made him effective. He doesn’t have any offers yet, but schools should get to know his name soon.
