FISHERS, Ind. – A few of the Indianapolis area’s top prospects were getting in some work with All-Pro Sports on Thursday evening.
One of the Midwest's top WRs, Cameron Polk has added an inch and 15 pounds since the fall.
247Sports dropped in to take a look.
-Fishers (Ind.) Hamilton Southeastern receiver Cameron Polk has gained an inch and put on 15 pounds since the fall and looks great at 6-foot-3, 185-pounds.
A big-play guy during the season, Polk holds early offers from Louisville, Ball State, Massachusetts and Ohio, with Indiana looking like they could be next. Hoosiers assistant coach Seth Littrell paid Polk a visit on Wednesday and indicated a scholarship was likely on the way.
As a junior, Polk caught 31 passes for 762 yards and seven touchdowns, in what was just his second-ever season playing football. He’s becoming a more complete receiver by the day, which was evident during this work out. He was quick off the line of scrimmage and showed strong hands in the intermediate passing game. Polk also catches the football well away from his body.
Louisville is the current leader in the clubhouse for Polk but an offer from Northwestern could change that. He looks forward to camping in Evanston during the summer and also mentioned Indiana and Tennessee as possibilities. Polk visited the Cardinals campus during the spring and likes everything he’s heard thus far from head coach Charlie Strong, his recruiter Vance Bedford and the Louisville coaching staff.
-Two years ago, the general consensus was that Jamitreus Crockham was the top player in the state in the class-of-2014.
The Hamilton Southeastern standout began making a name for himself as a freshman, rushing for 563 yards and nine touchdowns on just 90 carries. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Crockham came back as a sophomore and gained 1,009 yards and scored 16 touchdowns on 131 carries. Major BCS programs were showing interest and Toledo had offered, and then an unfortunate knee injury in camp prior to his junior year sidelined Crockham for the entire season.
Crockham has been cleared and is back fully healthy. More likely a linebacker or receiver on the next level, he looked bigger, faster and stronger than he did during the 7-on-7 season last summer, and even had a couple highlight reel grabs during the short workout on Thursday. Crockham will have a chance to re-raise his stock during the summer camp season and certainly during his senior season. He’s a prospect that could be worth waiting on.
-A name to watch down the road is Hamilton Southeastern 2015 receiver Chris Ford. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Ford is a basketball convert with good size and athletic ability. He contributed to the varsity football team as a sophomore and is poised for a breakout year this fall.
