FULLERTON, Calif. – Day two at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl saw an increased comfort level and an increase in pace and speed but many of the same names that stuck out on the first day of action found their way to the top on day two as well.
Will Fuller was impossible to jam at the line of scrimmage on Tuesday.
We take a look at the top prospects from Tuesday’s East practice at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl workouts.
1. Will Fuller, WR, Philadelphia (Pa.) Roman Catholic
East head coach Josh Niblett is on loan from Hoover High School and when asked who has stood out early in the week, Fuller is immediately the player that he brings up. The Notre Dame commit is extremely quick off of the line of scrimmage, has phenomenal route-running ability and catches the ball with ease.
2. Darius Paige, DT, Foley (Ala.) High School
Paige was mean, physical and freakishly strong all day. In one-on-ones, Paige doesn’t show a lot of diversity in his pass rush moves but his bull rush is something to see. All of the offensive linemen were marveling at the Alabama commit’s natural strength.
3. Ryan Switzer, WR, Charleston (W.V.) George Washington
Switzer – a commit to North Carolina – was excelling in his typical role as a slot matchup nightmare. He worked the underneath zones to perfection and he was very difficult to defend in man coverage. Switzer may have led the practice in receptions on the day.
4. David Kamara, CB, Loganville (Ga.) Grayson
He’s not the guy you pick out of a lineup in drills but when the competition heats up, Kamara just seems to make plays consistently. He rarely gets beat, he plays extremely physical in coverage and though he’s undersized Kamara was able to make some plays in the red zone against big tight end bodies.
5. Alan Knott, OT, Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek
Knott doesn’t have a very big base so you wonder how big he can get and how strong he can be as an anchor but he looked like the most athletic offensive lineman during one-on-ones on Tuesday. Knott has great foot quickness, reactive ability and plays strong at the point of attack.
6. Jeremy Cutrer, S, Kentwood (La.) Sumner
Cutrer is skinny, really skinny. But he is also really long and has all kinds of natural coverage ability. Cutrer’s length allows him to trail vertical routes and still make plays once the ball is thrown. As an LSU commit, expect Cutrer to be yet another freakish Tiger DB in the long term.
7. Joshua Outlaw, OT, Lithonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King
Outlaw was banged up during practice on Tuesday and he spent a healthy chunk of time by the trainer’s table but when he was in, he was effective. In particular, Outlaw looked outstanding in one-on-ones. He was the only offensive lineman that could handle the Darius Paige bulrush and he had one of the better combinations of strength and athleticism along the offensive front.
8. David Williams, RB, Philadelphia (Pa.) Imhotep Charter
The running back group is very good on the East side and though there wasn’t a clear leader among the group, Williams may have made the most elite plays. Williams has a lot of wiggle in space and he made some crisp elite cuts with the ball in his hands in tight spots as well.
9. Chikwe Obasih, DE, Brookfield (Wisc.) Central
One of the eye-popping plays on Tuesday came at the hands of Obasih when Alex Collins caught a swing pass on the outside, made a cut back inside and got leveled from Obasih’s inside-out pursuit. The Wisconsin commit is extremely athletic and has great speed to the football. He has the look of a player that is taking this trip seriously.
10. Austin Allen, QB, Fayetteville, (Ark.) High School
After the DB-WR one-on-ones, Allen looked nothing like an All-American quarterback but as the day progressed, Allen got settled in and began to throw extremely well. Allen is undersized at quarterback but he threw some nice deep balls, began to consistently take what the defense gave him and punctuated his day with a nice touchdown pass to Levonte Whitfield on a post route.
