Chesapeake Bowl top performers

Hyattsville, Md. - It was the North that topped the South, 38-13, in Saturday's 3rd Annual Chesapeake Bowl. And it's the North that dominates 247Sports' top performers for the game.

Kansas wide receiver commitment Ishmael Hyman brought home MVP honors.

1. Ishmael Hyman -- Holmdel (N.J.) St. John Vianney wide receiver

The Kansas commitment brought home MVP honors for his performance on Saturday. Hyman reeled in a 7-yard touchdown pass from Akron quarterback commitment Tommy Woodson in the first quarter to tie the game at 7. His 35-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter was the game's final touchdown.

2. Taquan Mizzell -- Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside running back

There weren't many bright spots for the South in Saturday's game, but Mizzell was one. The four-star back scored the only touchdown for the South. Mizzell, who's committed to Virginia, also ripped off a 51-yard run, setting up Maryland kicker Adam Greene's field goal in the third quarter.

3. Brian Lemelle -- Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt wide receiver

The three-star wide receiver was the toughest player to cover in the North's practices this week because of his speed. During the Chesapeake Bowl, Lemelle showed off his wheels on a 86-yard touchdown reception from his high school teammate, quarterback
Alec Werner, extending the North's lead to 28-10 late in the third quarter.

4. Delton Williams -- Erie (Pa.) Cathedral Prep athlete

Although the Michigan State commitment played on both sides of the ball for the North, it was his defensive performance that stood out in Saturday's win. Williams had two of the biggest hits of the game, coming from his safety position. He also picked off South quarterback Deion Stitt in the redzone.

5. James Conner -- Erie (Pa.) McDowell running back/linebacker

The Pitt commitment powered over, around, and through the South defense in Saturday's game. In the second quarter, the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder bulldozed his way into the endzone from 5-yards out to extend the North's lead to 21-10. Conner showed well in pass protection as well as a ball carrier.
