Miami Nike Combine/Ft. Lauderdale NUC Notebook

Posted by Bryan Fischer

FORT LAUDERDALE - Once again, the South Florida region continues to amaze with the sheer amount of skill position talent available. Although it’s a particularly good year for Florida linemen, several unknown skill position players from the region jumped into the spotlight after the Nike Sparq Combine in Miami on Saturday and the National Underclassman Combine (NUC) in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday.

Coming from out of nowhere, outside linebacker Justin Horton posted the best Sparq score in the nation on Saturday with a 115.95. The Clermont (Fla.) defender ran a 4.58 in the 40 yard dash at 6-foot-2, 207 pounds and was easily the talk of the combine.

“I had gone to a previous combine and I just wanted to come out here and grab a better score,” Horton said. “I didn’t think much of it until I came over and everybody started getting excited. I really didn’t know what to expect today.”

The impressive Sparq score is an indicator of Horton’s athleticism and he certainly looks the part of an outside linebacker at the next level. Although he played mostly at defensive end last year, he racked up 65 tackles and hopes to have an even bigger season in 2011 by playing some linebacker. With only a little interest from schools such as Louisville and USF, expect coaches from around the South to be asking for Horton’s highlight tape this week.

Coral Springs (Fla.) defensive end/linebacker Cameron Smith posted a slightly lower 94.50 Sparq score but certainly looked the part of a Division I player. Although he doesn’t have any offers, several schools are showing interest.

“I want to play (defensive) end,” he said. “Most schools are looking at me as defensive end or outside linebacker. I’ve got a couple of letters, a lot actually, from Boston College. I’ve had some from Iowa State, USF, awhile ago I had some from Miami, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Duke.”

Smith displayed nice side-to-side movement and after racking up double-digit sacks as a junior, could be primed for a breakout senior year if the combine is any indication.

Jones impresses

Sophomore quarterback Akeem Jones stood out from the crowd of skill position players on both Saturday and Sunday. Already receiving interest from the likes Miami, Florida State, Florida and Rutgers, Jones has been a hot name in recruiting circles after making the 7-on-7 travel team South Florida Express two weeks ago.

Recording an 81.12 Sparq score at the Nike Combine, the 6-foot-3, 190 pound Jones showed off his arm at the NUC, throwing a very catchable ball with good accuracy on short to intermediate throws. Jones didn’t play much during the season due to injury so he’s using camps over the summer to get better on the field for his upcoming season.

“I got hurt the fourth game of the season, broke my ankle in three places. I wasn’t able to play the rest of the season,” Jones said. “Right now my mindset is I just want to win a state championship. I want to get my team to that next level and see how I’m going to lead them there. I want people to say, ‘look at how he set an example for a lot of kids.’ That’s my goal.”

Jones looks like a taller version of former Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor with his throwing motion and strong arm. He won the NUC Leadership Award and was almost like another coach on the field by helping out his receivers and correcting their alignment on plays during the one-on-one portion of the combine. Expect to keep hearing Jones’ name as he travels around the country to other camps and competitions.

Speed is the name of the game

South Florida produces some of the fastest players in the country and both camps had two players turn in blazing 40 yard dash times.

At the NUC combine, Hollandale (Fla.) running back Jared Sanders blazed a 4.37 and 4.40 (hand-timed) in the 40 yard dash to grab the fastest man award. A bit small at 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, Sanders could be a slot receiver in college despite playing running back in high school. He was a terror to cover in one-on-one drills and had better hands than most, if not all, the wide receivers competing.

Sanders has had some interest from Miami, Illinois and FIU and could see even more schools start to take a look as the summer goes on.

Miami (Fla.) receiver John Green was the fastest man at the Nike camp, running a 4.46 (electronically-timed) 40 yard dash, which was the fastest time in the nation among all Nike combines this year.

“My fastest 40 is a 4.33,” he said. “I play slot receiver, kick returner and this year I’ll be the starting safety.”

Also a track star, Green has no offers but is being shown interest from coaches at Florida State, Kansas, Kansas State and Duke but says he hopes to hear from Miami soon. He plans on attending camps at Florida State and Kansas among others.

Burton takes Overall MVP award at NUC

2012 cornerback Adrian Burton attended both combines and made his name known at both of them. Posting a 98.46 Sparq rating at the Nike combine, Burton was hampered by a bit of fatigue from being in the sun all day and still managed to run a 4.67 in the 40 yard dash. He did much better on Sunday at the NUC, running a 4.51 and showing off impressive coverage skills in one-on-ones.

“It felt good to come out here after recovering and show that I am a D-1 prospect,” Burton said.

Burton was very fluid and excelled in press coverage against the top competition at the NUC. He took home Overall MVP honors and is seeing his recruiting pick up as of late. In-state programs like Florida and Florida State have shown interest but Miami is recruiting Burton the hardest. He recently went to the Hurricanes’ Junior Day and expects an offer to come from the staff shortly.

“I went to the one versus North Carolina,” Burton said. “I loved it, it felt just like home. Coach (Al) Golden is a real good coach, he’s really interactive with the players. I feel real comfortable there.”

As one of the top corners in Miami, expect to keep hearing Burton’s name pop up during the summer.

Miami Nike Combine Standouts

Posted by Bryan Fischer

MIAMI - The sun was shining, a light breeze was blowing and quite a few records fell at the Nike Sparq Combine at Miami North Stadium Saturday afternoon. Around 500 high school football players from around the state of Florida came to get tested in four events (a 40 yard dash, agility shuttle run, power ball toss and vertical jump), which were turned into their Sparq rating. Generally, anything over 90 is considered an upper echelon test score.

Much of the high-end talent in the state was not in attendance due to Florida State and Florida Junior Days being held on Saturday afternoon. Although there were not as many big names in attendance, a few players did get their names on everyone's radar after putting up some impressive numbers.

Faton Bauta - They say timing is everything and Bauta’s was impeccable this week - on and off the field. He attended the Nike Combine in Philadelphia last week but, having recently moved to nearby Palm Beach from New York, he was able to stop by for a second go around at the Sparq test. He posted one of the top Sparq scores in Miami with a 101.85 and, although he played quarterback last year, looks more like a linebacker. His 4.15 shuttle time was particularly impressive at 6-foot-2, 220 pounds. Bauta recently enrolled at South Florida powerhouse Palm Beach Dwyer High School and already has several programs evaluating him, likely as an athlete.

Adrian Burton - Despite a slow (for a top corner) 40 time of 4.67, Burton still was impressive in other events to record a 98.46 Sparq rating. He said he ran a 4.55 last year at a combine and that’s the time most college coaches like. Burton has good size and could also play safety if needed. He went to Miami’s recent Junior Day and is close to receiving an offer from the Hurricanes.

Kilto Meme - A running back from a small school, Premier Academy in Pompano Beach (Fla.), Meme posted an impressive Sparq rating of 94.14. At 5-foot-10 and 193 pounds, Meme looked certainly looked the part and his 4.55 40 yard dash should have a few coaches interested in seeing his film. The Nike combine was the first of a few camps Meme plans on attending and depending on his senior season, could be an name to look out for on the recruiting trail.

Cameron Smith - A tight end/defensive end at the high school level, Smith projects as an outside linebacker in college based on his size. At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Smith needs to add some muscle but he has a very good frame to do so. Not really a big name coming into the camp, his Sparq score of 94.5 should garner some more interest from schools. Boston College, Ole Miss , Iowa State, USF, Miami, Vandy and Duke are some of the schools who have shown interest but Smith does not have any offers. He ran a 4.61 in the 40 yard dash and had a very good vertical of 33 inches.

Justin Horton - After turning in his card listing his times, Horton quickly got most of the Nike staff excited. It was easy to see why when they announced his Sparq score, a 115.95, which was the best score in the nation this year at the Nike combines. The 6-foot-2, 207 pound Horton ran a 4.58 in the 40 yard dash, a 4.47 in the shuttle and had a 37 inch vertical jump to go along with an impressive 41 foot toss of the power ball. Louisville and USF are two schools to show interest in Horton but his eye-popping athleticism might make several schools pop in his tape and see him make 65 tackles last year. He will likely play linebacker at the next level.

John Green - South Florida is known for producing some of the fastest players in the country and the Miami combine allowed John Green to add his name to the list in 2012. He ran a 4.46 in the 40 yard dash (times are recorded electronicly), which is the top time at a Nike Combine this year. A 5-foot-10, 165 pound slot receiver, Florida State, Kansas and Duke are some of the schools showing interest. He said his fastest 40 was 4.33 and that he ran a 10.87 in the 100 meters last year. Green plans to attend several camps over the summer and could see his stock rise depending on how he does in 7-on-7 and 1-on-1 drills.

Pedro Sibiea - One of the few lineman to come to the combine (they generally are geared for skill position players), he posted an impressive 95.10 Sparq rating. A solid 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, Sibiea tested well in just about every category. If he can shave a little bit of time off his already impressive 4.87 40 yard dash, he could see a lot of scholarships come his way.

Akeem Jones - A class of 2013 quarterback, Jones is a hot name on the recruiting circuit after making the South Florida Express 7-on-7 travel team. He posted an 81.12 Sparq rating and is a legitimate 6-foot-3, 185 pounds. He ran a 4.89 in the 40 and had a 4.34 shuttle. Already seeing interest from several major programs, Jones stock should continue to rise.
