Rivals Camp Series Tampa: The Cassidy Awards
MORE RCS TAMPA: Prospects that earned their stripes | Five teams that should be pleased
LAKELAND, Fla. – The Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Series presented by adidas stop in Central Florida is in the books. After evaluating the talent on hand in South Florida on Sunday, here are the Cassidy Awards.
Robinson, an Alabama commit, is as physically gifted as any defensive in the country, boasting long arms and a college-ready frame. He moves well for his size and comes with the type of versatility that makes college coaches happy. It’s unclear whether or not Robinson will play cornerback or safety at the college level, but his athleticism should translate to either spot. Robinson remains committed to the Tide but will continue to take visits until Signing Day.
NEXT ON THE RADAR
Dindy is likely the next national recruit at powerhouse Lakeland High school. The class of 2022 defensive end already looks like a high school senior and held his own against elite prospects during one-on-one action. The young defensive lineman is a bit raw, sure, but his size and athleticism make him a hyper-promising prospect. Dindy, who can easily dunk a basketball despite his massive size, has yet to land his first offer, but seems extremely interested in Oklahoma.
Dix has grown exponentially over the last year and retained his athleticism while doing so. On Sunday, he took home linebacker MVP honors and looked the part of an elite prospect in the process. Dix looked smooth and drills despite starting to fill and gain muscle. Dix is current ranked as a low three-star prospect, a fact that will be changing in short order.
It’s been a good week for Greene, as the quarterback committed to West Virginia and followed that up by winning the quarterback MVP award at Sunday’s elite camp. The newest Mountaineer showed great touch on deep balls and also hit receivers in stride on intermediate routes. Greene was much more consistent that he was expected to be and had the MVP award wrapped up pretty early in the day.
Dexter played through a broken finger and still managed to use his hands effectively during one-on-one work. Dexter seemed to get more effective as the camp went on and didn’t miss a beat all afternoon. The Florida commit’s performance was enough to earn him an invitation to the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by adidas.
Williams’s athletic ability shouldn’t be glossed over, as he was clearly one of the top prospects the camp and captured a Five-Star Challenge invitation with his performance. Still, his personality is as notable as his talent. One of the best interviews in the country, Williams showed up wearing and flaunting a massive gold chain and joked with everyone within an earshot during registration. Williams is the kind of player that will be a locker room leader in college, as people are naturally drawn to him. He is currently committed to Oregon.
