currently leads and he plans to make an announcement on July 21. Oklahoma State
and Louisville are also in the mix.
Roy was very impressive in his
own right. He did not run the 40 or the shuttle, but when it came time to handle
business in one-on-ones he was more than ready. He showed quick hands and an
explosive start. Roy kept very good pad level and he showed the ability to
counter when he had to, and his spin move was definitely impressive.
Jerry Jeudy (2017)
Deerfield Beach (Fla.)
Recruiting Wrap: Jeudy is keeping his options open, but he did say Alabama and
Miami have been recruiting him the hardest. He mentioned Alabama, LSU,
potential summer camp options.
Performance: Jeudy came to Texas to show he could hold his own and he definitely
did that on Saturday. His footwork was impressive as he tied
defensive backs in knots with his route running. Jeudy was able to start and stop
and blow by opponent after opponent. He created separation and he showed some
sure hands on the day. Overall it was a strong performance for the rising junior.
Friendswood (Texas) Clear Brook
Recruiting Wrap: Taylor has yet to receive his first offer but
Houston have expressed a strong interest.
Performance: Taylor's size, or lack of it, is going to be one
of the first things people notice about him, but the 5-foot-7
and 145-pound prospect showed he has dynamic speed throughout the day.
During testing he was clocked at 4.33 and 4.28 in the 40-yard-dash and 4.13 and 4.07
in the shuttle. The times were hand-timed but his marks were by far the fastest at
the camp. Taylor also showed he was more than a combine warrior. During one-on-ones
he made routine work of opposing defensive backs.
Houston (Texas) Lamar
Recruiting Wrap: Latin has yet to receive his first scholarship offer.
Performance: Latin's size is the biggest knock on him, but
the 5-foot-8, 158-pound prospect continues to impress with his technique, patience and confidence. He was
strong from the beginning of drills until the last one-on-one rep and he earned
top honors for the DB group. He also ran a 4.44 40-yard-dash during testing.
Melvin Taylor (2017)
Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall
Recruiting Wrap: Taylor is new to the recruiting process.
Performance: Taylor entered the day a bit of an unknown, but his name was
definitely known by the end of camp. The 5-foot-9, 150-pound cornerback was at the
top of his game during one-on-one drills. He showed great balance and excellent
hips as he made play after play on the ball. Taylor came out of his breaks quickly
and he was able to get the best of the top receivers at the camp on multiple
Houston (Texas) Aldine MacArthur
Recruiting Wrap: Price has yet to receive his first offer but Army,
Ole Miss have shown significant interest.
Performance: Price has some nice size for a cornerback at
6-foot, 175 pounds and he also tested well.
He started the day with a 4.48 40-yard-dash and then he followed up the testing with a
strong performance in one-on-ones. He showed nice burst coming out of his break
and the ability to flip his hips. It was an easy call to put him among the top
defensive backs at the camp.
Tallahassee (Fla.) Chiles
Recruiting Wrap: Simpkins is currently receiving mostly Div.
III interest but FCS Stetson is also showing attention.
Performance: Simpkins was the guy the wide receivers knew they wanted throwing
them the ball. He threw with accuracy and velocity on short and intermediate
routes and he did a good job of putting the ball on target when he went deep.
Cypress (Texas) Cypress Springs
Recruiting Wrap: Carter is receiving attention from Texas State, Prairie View
Performance: This was a close one with several receivers making a case, but
Carter gets the nod after he made several key receptions throughout the course
of one-on-one competition. He was able to adjust his body to get position on
defenders and he did a nice job of high pointing the ball in jump ball
situations. Carter showed very sure hands throughout the day.
Mattiece Jones (2017)
Houston (Texas) Westside
Recruiting Wrap: Jones is in the beginning stages of the recruiting process.
Performance: The 6-foot-3, 220-pound defensive end showed a quick first step and
was able to beat opposing offensive linemen with speed to the outside. His
technique needs some polish but he does have some nice tools to work with and he
put them to work on Saturday. He is one to watch as he grows and develops over
the next few years.
