WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- This weekend, a pair of other camps, the Rivals Underclassmen Challenge and The Opening, grabbed all the headlines.
But at the College Prep World Camp at Woodbridge Senior High School, campers went through a few extra activities. Athletes were tested for bench press, broad jump and 40-yard dash among others, as well as on-field drills and one-on-ones.
But what differentiated from many other camps is that today, the athletes were treated to an academic symposium, which gave them advice for college and showed the importance of taking academics just as seriously as football.
HokieHaven.com was on hand to break down the top athletes, which include a few Hokies fans should keep an eye on. Damascus (Md.) class of 2015 athlete Jalen Christian was on hand but did not participate, so is not included.
Performers listed below in no particular order.
College Prep World camp
DE Wyatt Teller
6-4/264, Bealeton (Va.) Liberty
Teller plays harder than a lot of other football prospects you'll ever see. As a Rivals100 prospect, Teller has nothing left to prove, but said he wanted to participate in any football activity he could. Teller could be an immediate impact player for whichever school he chooses out of his top five of Virginia Tech, Virginia, Clemson, Michigan and Oregon. He's an absolute beast of a lineman who only seems to get better each time out.
5-11/175, Woodbridge (Va.) Woodbridge
A soft verbal commitment to Duke, Edwards is a very athletic defensive back with a solid ability to cut as needed. He was the fastest in the field in the 40-yard dash, but he'll be the first to tell you he wasn't happy with his 4.67 time after being clocked previously at 4.42. Still an impressive defender.
6-3/182, Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes
A tall, but very lean quarterback, Cutler has an impressive, live arm. He steadily hit his targets and showed off his range as well. The only knock against him is his size. He'll need to bulk up plenty for the next level, but Virginia has a very coachable player with a lot of potential.
QB Mike Majette 2015
5-10/176, Woodbridge (Va.) Woodbridge
A little short for a quarterback, with three years of high school left, chances are Majette isn't done growing. Already with a West Virginia offer, Majette has good accuracy and form. If he doesn't grow anymore, he'll likely be moved to defensive back. But Majette is certainly a young quarterback who shows a lot of promise.
DE Bryan Roberts 2014
6-4/227, Woodbridge (Va.) C.D. Hylton
A newocmer to the camp circuit, that seems to be the biggest reason he's flown under the radar this long. He's a little too high in his stance, but has a good burst off the line and the aggressiveness needed for the position. If he keeps playing at this level, he should see a offers or more coming his way this fall.
RB Marcus Boone 2014
6-0/170, Woodbridge (Va.) Woodbridge
A spinewy running back, Boone showed he also has good hands. He and Majette should make for a good offensive duo this fall for the Vikings, who are already solid with Da'Shawn Hand, Boone's cousin, on defense. Boone has yet to pull in any offers, but that should change with the attention from coaches that Hand has and will bring.
OG Alec Eberle 2014
6-3/243, Mechanicsville (Va.) Atlee
Significantly undersized, Eberle still has good hands. His footwork will need to improve, but he held his own against Teller, though he never got a win against him one-on-one. Eberle still has a favorable frame, which should make him attractive to schools looking to mold an offensive lineman, which most do.
OT Randy Kumah
6-0/298, Woodbridge (Va.) Woodbridge
Kumah surprisingly beat Teller soundly in their one-on-one matchup. Teller easily beat him the second time, but Kumah rebounded and was narrowly defeated in the third. Kumah needs to work on his footwork and quickness, but shows good technique. No offers to this point, but someone will take a chance on him and should.
OLB Jeavone Batts 2015
6-0/237, Wilmington (SC) Laney
He's got plenty of upside and three years of high school, but Batts is off to a good start. His speed and footwork need to improve, but he's aggressive and has a nose for the football. If he continues to improve, we'll be be hearing plenty more from Laney.
K/WR Jason Eaglin
6-2/179, Woodbridge (Va.) Woodbridge
With the camp being on its home field, Woodbridge represented at the camp. Eaglin might be listed as a punter, but schools might want to take a look at him elsewhere, like defensive back or wide receiver. Eaglin displayed some good hands, speed and athleticism in grabbing some tough catches in one-on-ones.
