Thoughts From Camp

Top performers

Lorenzo Joe was one of the day's top performers and best competitors.

My top performers overall:

10. DE, Sione Teuhema - Keller
9. QB, Jarrett Stidham - Stephenville
8. OL-DL, Mason Denley - Columbus
7. TE, Anthony Jones - New Orleans Karr
6. DE, Victor Evans - Dallas Skyline
5. OL, Maea Teuhema - Keller
4. QB, Jerrod Heard - Denton Guyer
3. WR, Lorenzo Joe - Abilene Cooper
2. DB, Arrion Springs - San Antonio Roosevelt
1. DE, Derick Roberson - San Antonio Brennan

Non-contact camps are not made for linebackers and running backs. If you notice, not one of either position made the list. A few recruits at both positions impressed but not to a level where they had to make this list.

***

Passing the eyeball test will never be a problem for Maea Teuhema. He is a HUGE human being.

6-foot-4+ and all of 340+.

***

There was no more competitive athlete on the day than Lorenzo Joe.

Stephenville 2015 dual threat QB Jarrett Stidham had one of the strongest arms on the day.

Joe took as many reps in 1on1s as any receiver. He never missed a chance.

And he didn't disappoint.

Maybe the match-up of the camp was Joe going against Arrion Springs.

Both are plus-players with an advanced understanding of how to play the game.

They were both fun to watch in the afternoon session.

***

I didn't know if the offer to Skyline's Victor Evans should have been extended.

His junior film, while good, did not blow me away.

But since his junior football season, he's added 20 pounds of very good weight and not lost an ounce of quickness. If anything, he's quicker now.

I think Evans could be a player just scratching the surface of his abilities, kind of like former Skyline LB Peter Jinkens who he was hanging out with in the morning session.

***

I've been saying this for a couple of weeks but a young corner at Fort Bend Ridge Point continues to catch my eye.

Jordan Tolbert has no offers at this time but he's long-armed and competitive and ran a 4.49 40 today. Not bad for a sophomore.

***

His high school teammate Cameron Townsend also looked good in drills today. But like I said, linebackers aren't really tested very much in camps.

Don't get me wrong, the instruction is there but unless there are pads on or it's pass hull, it's just impossible to see how they put it all together.

***

Of the young arms, count me as a fan of Stephenville's Jarrett Stidham.

***

Columbus' Royce Caldwell popped off a 4.32 40.

He has a very slight build but he can really go.

***

I'll have more thoughts tomorrow.
