Rivals adizero Combine: Dallas takeaways
DALLAS – The sixth of 14 nationwide Rivals adizero Combine events took place Saturday at Coppell High School, with 1,530 athletes turning out to compete.
After all of the performances, several players earned a spot in Sunday’s Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Series presented by adidas event. Here’s the rundown of the players who earned their way into the camp.
Joining his fellow Kansas City-area prospects, including four-star offensive tackle Danielson Ike, at Sunday’s event will be Olathe (Kan.) Northwest’s Andrew Dumas after showing out at the combine on Saturday. As a junior Dumas rushed for 1,400 yards from the running back position, but he is going to work at linebacker during Sunday’s camp. Iowa State, Nebraska and South Dakota have been through the school and the interest from those programs is stronger on the defensive side of the football. Dumas holds a 3.8 GPA and has also been generating interest from top academic FCS programs such as Cornell and Yale.
Satcher came to the adizero combine from California with plans to sneak in unofficial visits to SMU and TCU while in the DFW area. He’s from the Riverside, Calif., area but was unable to attend the Rivals events in Los Angeles, so he made the most of an opportunity while in Texas. In 10 games last season on a new team, Satcher threw for 2,200 yards and 20 touchdowns.
“I went to one of the Cal camps when [Sonny Dykes] was the coach out there,” he said. “He’s definitely a cool person. I talked to him a little bit when he was out there and he said that he’d keep an eye out for me and here I am.”
It is not often linemen jump off the field in speed drills, but Ardmore, Okla., class of 2019 two-way prospect Brayden Bryant’s performance in the shuttle and even the 40-yard dash belied his size. The 298-pounder went sub-5.0 in the 40-yard dash and 4.87 in the pro agility shuttle. Home-state schools Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Tulsa are showing interest. An early offer has come in from Division II Texas A&M-Commerce as a defensive lineman. Bryant is looking to play offensive line, but he measured just shy of 6-foot-2, so will be an interior offensive lineman at the next level.
One of the brightest prospects in Arkansas’ 2020 class is tight end Blayne Toll. The big tight end came to the combine on the heels of a visit to Arkansas for a junior day visit and is hoping to show well enough to start turning early interest into offers, beginning this weekend. If that first offer came from the Razorbacks, that would go over well in the Toll household.
“They talked to us about what they do for us in there with the nutrition program and stuff,” he said. “The whole town wants me to go there; I’m sure I’ll get death threats if I don’t.”
Wiggins will join a loaded wide receiver group at Sunday’s camp, but on Saturday he stood out as a prospect that checked all the boxes of a top-flight outside wide receiver. He ran a sub-4.6 40-yard dash, but posted even more impressive results in the agility and jumping events. He said that he plans to attend a spring practice at Houston at the end of March, which will be his first significant recruiting visit.
“I would like to see things be really competitive - watching the wide receivers and corners,” he said. “I’d like to see what I can learn from them and just get to know the staff.”
