Under Armour: Wednesday Silver Hot 11
ORLANDO, Fla. - Five-star receiver A.J. Green has been the most consistent receiver on either roster this week. His top highlight Wednesday came when he made a great full extension catch in traffic for about a 15-yard gain. See who joins Green on the Wednesday Hot 11.
|Under Armour All Star Game Silver Hot 11 |
Matt Stankiewitch, OL, Schuylkill Haven (Pa.) Blue Mountain
The 6-foot-4 lineman enjoyed a very productive day. He moved his feet really well in the team's 11-on-11 work and really extends his arms. Despite his height, he might be best put together lineman on the Silver roster.
T.J. Lawrence, WR, Lakeland (Fla.) Kathleen
Lawrence has been consistently very impressive this week and he had another good day Wednesday. He displays great hands over the middle and knows how to catch balls in traffic. Based on this week's performances, he looks like one of the top four receivers in the game. That is a major compliment considering the receiver talent in Orlando this week.
A.J. Green, WR, Summerville (S.C.)
Green has been the most consistent receiver on either roster this week. His top highlight Wednesday came when he made a great full extension catch in traffic for about a 15-yard gain. He displays excellent body control on all of his routes.
Braxston Cave, OL, Mishawaka (Ind.) Penn
Cave has a pair of massive arms and has played with a lot of power all week. He is going to be a great center at the college level with his combination of toughness, skill, and intelligence.
Brandon Harris, CB, Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington
Even when he allows a reception, Harris is close by to wrap up and make a tackle. He is not as big as some defensive backs, but his standout performances every day this week have established him as one of the top five players at this event.
Templeton Hardy, DT, Sardis (Miss.) North Panola
Hardy enjoyed his best performance of the week on Wednesday. He is just a little light but he uses his height and long arms to his advantage. He is a good defensive tackle prospect who will further blossom with added lower body strength.
Brandon Washington, OL, Miami (Fla.) Northwestern
Washington showed up for his first day of practice ande made an immediate impression. With a trimmed down and more cut body, his frame looks really good and strong. To show up in the middle of the week and immediately be a dominating player is an impressive feat. He showed great run blocking ability.
Mark Buchanan, OT, Austin (Texas)
Buchanan has the height and arms for an offensive tackle, and as he gains more weight should grow into that position very nicely. His play on the line has been pretty consistent all week. Wednesday was probably his best day of the three.
Terrance Parks, S, Fairburn (Ga.) Creekside
For two days in a row now, Parks has been a major factor in the secondary. He has broken up several passes and looks like a big hitter who has a knack for finding the ball. His productive play is even more noticeable considering the amount of wide receiver talent on the Silver squad.
Brandon Barnes, ATH, Bunn (N.C.)
Barnes took reps as a kick and punt returner Wednesday and looked very natural at both, much more natural than he did at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas. He showed a good burst of speed after the catch and positioned himself well to make the first tackler miss.
Antoine Hicks, ATH, Mansfield (Texas) Timberview
Hicks had an impressive highlight when he hauled in a 15-yard out pattern in between Terrance Parks and Brandon Harris. Hicks has decent size and uses his hands well to catch. Though he is not at A.J. Green's level, he proved Wednesday that he can be a quality player.
