LAKELAND, Fla. – The Rivals Camp Series presented by adidas hit Central Florida this weekend with the Rivals adizero Combine on Saturday. More than 1,200 prospects showed up and competed, and 14 punched their ticket to Sunday's Rivals 3 Stripe Camp presented by adidas.

Antonio Thomas
Antonio Thomas (

Antonio Thomas’ testing numbers were enough to earn him an invitation to Sunday’s elite camp. The Lake Mineola High School athlete plays both wide receiver and defensive back but will work out at wideout at Sunday’s event. Thomas carries an offer from FIU and hopes a solid performance on Sunday will create more options. Thomas’ calling card is his quickness. So while he lacks truly elite length, he should be able to hold his own on Sunday.

Kevin Cline

Kevin Cline was one of the more impressive physical specimens at Saturday’s combine and moved well enough to show that’s he’s more than just a big body. The Boca (Fla,) Christian senior holds offers from Texas A&M and FIU and boats the frame of a major FBS prospect. Stanford, USC, UCLA, Harvard and Florida State have all made overtures to Cline but are yet to make things official with scholarship offers.

Jacurri Brown

A pair of 2022 Valdosta, Ga. prospects made the trip down to compete at Saturday’s combine and ended up leaving with invitations to come back on Sunday. Class of 2022 quarterback Jacurri Brown, who started as a freshman on varsity last season and led his team to the playoffs, as well as his class of 2022 teammate wide receiver/linebacker Deaunte Hunter, each performed well. Brown and Hunter, who were in town because Hunter’s older brother, 2021 defensive end Jacques Hunter, was already in Sunday’s camp. Now all three prospects will have a chance to show what they can do. Neither Brown nor the younger Hunter have yet to receive offers, but both listed Clemson, Georgia and Miami among their dream offers.

Avery Boyd

Class of 2020 wide receiver Avery Boyd is a relative newcomer to the game of football but he’s quickly making a name for himself in the recruiting world. Boyd recently picked up an offer from Southern Miss and has been turning heads on the 7-on-7 circuit as well. Also an accomplished track athlete, it’s not surprising that Boyd tested well and earned an invite to Sunday’s camp. Last week, while in Miami for the adidas East Coast Invitational, Boyd visited Miami, Florida Atlantic and FIU and is likely to see more offers coming his way soon.

Jaquan Randolph
Jaquan Randolph (

Jaquan Randolph holds offers from Southern Miss and Western Kentucky but has the build of a major college prospect and will grow into his frame. The 6-foot-1 wide receiver has incredibly long arms and hopes to showcase improved speed on Sunday. Randolph holds early offers from FIU, Southern Miss, Bowling Green and others.

Linebacker Jeremiah Williams is just finishing up his sophomore year and already has an offer from Southern Mississippi. The Tallahassee (Fla.) Rickards standout ran some of the faster 40 and 5-10-5 shuttle times of the day. Wake Forest, Florida Atlantic and UCF have been showing a lot of interest in Williams but they haven't offered yet. Florida State is also showing plenty of interest in the local prospect. At some point this year Williams would like to visit Florida and Alabama.

Dequan Davis
Dequan Davis (

Class of 2023 wide receiver Dequan Davis of Rockledge High School was one of the most physically imposing underclassman at Saturday’s event and ran well enough to prove he’s more than a big body. Davis has impressive size and has been in contact with both Auburn and Georgia. The long wideout is yet to receive his first offer, but it’s clear that he has a future at the FBS level. Davis will get his first taste of elite competition during Sunday’s event.
