Competitive Edge Sports' John Tamburo instructs the Scout.com Combine participants prior to the beginning of testing drills.
Super sophomore offensive linemen, Caledonia HS's Derek Sherrod, Jackson Academy's Chaz Ramsey, Raymond HS's Chris McDuffie, and Houston HS's Edward Prince. All looked really good in one on ones drills.
Super junior defensive linemen, Philadelphia HS's Anthony Gray and Ridgeland HS's Aaron Williams. Although Anthony - the state powerlifting champion in his classification - had a slightly bruised knee, he still showed up for the combine and performed really well in the one on ones. Aaron, who was chosen the top defensive linemen at the US Army All-American combine in San Antionio last January (there were over 700 players at the combine), really stood out in the one on ones. Although both are in the 6-0 range in height, they make up for lack of height with tremendous strength and good quickness. Their confidence level is also off the charts.

Meridian HS, loaded with D-I prospects this year, had several players in attendance, including, from left to right, Brandon Davis, Roshaad Byrd, Jamie Hill and Cordera Eason. Derrick Davis, due to an injury, wasn't able to attend the combine.
