Rivals Camp Series Orlando: Offensive stars
LAKELAND, Fla. -- The Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour rolled into the Sunshine State on Saturday, and as expected there were plenty of standout performances. Rivals.com Southeast recruiting analyst Kynon Codrington breaks down the top 10 offensive performers.
RIVALS CAMP SERIES ORLANDO TOP OFFENSIVE PERFORMERS
1. APB RayRay McCloud, Tampa (Fla.) Sickles (2015)McCloud took home the offensive skill MVP in a heated battle with Keith Harrington. The versatile athlete took reps at running back and receiver while also jumping over to defensive back. He has good hands and runs clean routes. We like his ability in space, and he is a mismatch against linebackers in the passing game.
2. OL Travaris Dorsey, Jacksonville (Fla.) RainesThe Florida Gators recruit was excellent in one-on-ones. Dorsey captured the offensive line MVP and displayed the ability to be a stout guard at the next level. He does a good job of redirecting and striking the breastplate of his opponent without lunging. One thing he needs to do is watch his weight and add muscle to his upper body.
3. RB Keith Harrington, St. Petersburg (Fla.) NortheastHarrington narrowly missed winning the MVP but still had a great afternoon. He has superior quickness and lateral agility. The St. Petersburg native is a reliable pass-catching threat and figures to stay on the field on third downs at the college level.
4. QB Zack Darlington, Apopka (Fla.)Darlington had a nice day, spinning it in a solid group of signal callers. He made a variety of throws and showed great touch on a couple of passes.
5. WR Luke McFadden, Tampa (Fla.) PlantThe Plant Panther came out of nowhere to make the top performers list. McFadden was almost unstoppable in one-on-ones. He is a crafty route runner who knows how to get open. The slender flanker is a sure-handed target and was one of the most consistent players all afternoon.
6. QB De'Andre Johnson, Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast (2015)Johnson is a smooth passer who can get the ball downfield with his strong arm. His mechanics are solid, but we would like to see him shore up his footwork when dropping back. The Florida State commit continues to impress on the camp scene.
7. ATH Deionte Gaines, Orlando (Fla.) Dr. PhillipsThe ultra-quick Gaines made a ton of plays in one-on-ones. He is fast off the line and does a nice job of eating up a defender's cushion. Look for him to end up as a slot receiver or all-purpose back when he gets to college.
8. WR Jaha McCray Jr., Jacksonville (Fla.) First CoastMcCray caught our eye early during one-on-ones. The diminutive playmaker was a vertical threat and made several tough grabs. He is lightning in a bottle and should excel on the edge in a spread passing attack that features four- and five-receiver sets.
9. OL John Biscardi, Fleming Island (Fla.)Biscardi turned in a solid performance in one-on-ones. He plays with a nice base and technique. During drills, he showed a great punch to go with quick feet. He was one of the top offensive linemen in a deep group.
10. RB Trevaughn Rodriguez, Daytona Beach (Fla.) MainlandRodriguez worked at running back, but he could just as easily play receiver. He has deceptive speed and can blow by linebackers trying to stick with him in coverage. In one-on-ones, he beat several defenders on seam and wheel routes from the backfield.
