Nick Caine

Nick Caine resembles a young Green Bay Packers linebacker. He has very impressive size and his ability to run is a big plus. Caine ran a 4.72 and jumped 35". When a linebacker takes that sudden burst to knock down a player, he uses the same explosive movement as he would in a vertical jump... but in this sense, it is a horizontal jump. Caine is 6'1, 205 lbs. and a product of the weight room.

Branson Ball

Branson Ball is a top athlete who has flown under the radar. The junior wide receiver tested off the charts with Speed Rank last week. He only weighs in around 150 lbs., but is a long armed 6'0". Ball is so athletic that he draws comparisons to Baylor WR, and potential 2012 1st round draft pick: Kendall Wright. Wright's NFL Combine Results(4.61 40 yard dash, 4.18 shuttle, and 38.5" vertical) are almost identical to Branson Ball's(4.55 40 yard dash, 4.12 shuttle and 38" vertical).

Wilmer Hutchins 2012 Graduating Class

In 2012, the defense for Wilmer-Hutchins was stacked. Headed by Safety LaDarrell McNeil. McNeil was rated as high as the #86 player in the nation. He is one of the most serious hitters you will find in high school football. In fact, if the NFL gets any more stringent on big hits, Ladarrell McNeil would not be able to play in the league. He's a big guy at 6'2, 200. A guy you should here a lot about at the University of Tennessee next year. He participated in the vertical jump with a 34.5.

DB Colin Spencer

Colin Spencer is a man on a mission. In the last few months he has been generating a lot of buzz from his unique testing ability. Constantly running 4.4 and constantly jumping 40 inches. All that is great, but Colin Spencer is first off a fantastic football player. This guy had 5 blocked kicks in 2011. He breaks the edge on field goals with ridiculous speed. Speed that gives him the ability to chase down running backs from 10-20 yards behind.

2014 DT Jaquis Jones

Jaquis Jones impressed with his all around athleticism at the Speed Rank Newman-Smith workout. Jones is 6'0, 260 lbs. and as a junior already power cleans 280 pounds. The coaches at Newman-Smith really rave about his potential. He ran a 5.18 40 yard dash, 4.7 shuttle and jumped 30.2". These are great results for a DT his size and age.

Lancaster's Nick Alexander

Lancaster HS has a special prospect in Nick Alexander. The 2014 wide receiver has all the size you could ask for at his position. He is a broad shouldered,6'3, 185 lbs., and could easily be 6'5 soon. As you can see in his video... he has knee scraping arms. Alexander's jump ball ability could really be a plus at the next level. He jumped 31.6" and ran a 4.80 on a slow indoor track at Lancaster due to outdoor weather conditions, but he has good field speed.
