Saturday’s event was hosted by Nation Ford High School, and the Falcons will be represented at Sunday’s camp after Class of 2021 prospect Siddeqq McNeal earned his way back with an excellent testing performance. McNeal measured in at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds and has the build of a future FBS prospect. It’s still early for him on the recruiting trail, but he looks like he could develop into quite the prospect and will have a chance to show out on his home turf tomorrow.
Offensive lineman Erik Walker quietly picked up early offers from TCU and NC State before adding one from North Carolina. He doesn't have any leaders at this point but does have a close relationship with coach Aaron Henry from N.C. State. Walker was at the NC State spring game and really enjoyed going on the field and meeting a lot of the players. He will camp at NC State and Clemson.
Another prospect who earned an invite was Class of 2019 Greer, S.C. quarterback/athlete Treyvion Houston. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound playmaker already has an offer from Old Dominion and recently took visits to South Carolina and Clemson. Several other programs, including Louisville and Charlotte, are also evaluating Houston, who could play any number of positions at the next level. He will have a chance to show his skills as a passer at Sunday’s camp.
Freshman Bryce Steele doesn't have any offers yet, but they are coming. His dream schools are Penn State, Ohio State and Florida State, but the Raleigh, N.C., native has already taken plenty of visits. NC State, North Carolina, Clemson, Ohio State and Tennessee have already hosted Steele. He will have his chance to show off his skills at Sunday's Rivals 3 Stripe Camp.
There were a lot of big-time prospects on hand to show their teammates support. Rivals250 defensive tackle Joshua Harris had eight teammates compete, while 2020 defensive back Keontae Jenkins was here with a few of his 7-on-7 teammates. Harris is still working out where he will take official visits, but keep an eye on Ohio State. Defensive linemen Immanuel Hickman and Christian Rorie brought some of their teammates to today's combine to help them get on the radar.
Rivals250 defensive back Anthony Harris made the trip with a couple teammates from Havelock, N.C., and he will be competing Sunday. Watch out for North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee here. Cameron Smith, defensive back target for West Virginia, came to the combine to show off his skills and warm up before competing at Sunday's Rivals Camp.
