Under Armour All-America Game: Top offensive performers

Burden was consistently dominant throughout the practice week, setting the tone early in the first practice with hard catches on cover. The Missouri signer has excellent hands, making grips on high and low throws along with balls that were in front of him and behind him.

Burden ended the week with a 65-yard highlight reel and ran for a touchdown in the game. Missouri fans should be really excited about the explosiveness that next season will bring to the show.

There was no smoother or harder receiver to cover on either side during the week in Orlando than Williams. It’s a little smaller, but that doesn’t matter because its on-course running abilities and overall speed have helped it create a lot of separation.

Williams, a Clemson signer, has shown the ability to consistently make easy and difficult catches while running a variety of courses. With his skill set, Williams should provide a first impact for the Tigers.

Considering the level of talent on the defensive line, Campbell’s performance last week was even more impressive. The guard outside Texas was a beast within the offensive line, handling bull runs, counter moves and whatever else the defensive linemen threw at him.

Campbell plays with exceptional leverage and hand technique, and is as strong as he comes. He also displayed the swiftness and agility of sliding to keep the defensive linesman in front of him while restoring his hands when needed. There is a lot of Jamaree Salyer in his game.

Marshall was one of the most consistent receivers in Orlando last week and the Texas A&M quarterbacks will love his range. Not only is he a catcher who can move sticks, Marshall is a legitimate threat to the downfield due to how well he can fight for jump balls. His reliable hands and large build could make him one of College Station’s earliest collaborators.

It was an important week for Umeozulu and he made the most of it. The future Longhorn is impressive in size and length, and that really helped him fight the talented defensive linemen approaching.

Umeozulu used a combination of sound technique and hand strength to slow down the defensive linemen and then guide them where he wanted them to go. He has some physical development to do once he gets to Austin, but he could turn into a multi-year collaborator for Texas.

This was the best competition Rice had ever faced and the five star improved with each workout and culminated the week with an outstanding performance in the game. The massive tackle is an exceptional run block that can take his man away from the ball as he gets to the second tier to slow down linebackers.

Pass blocking is where Rice, a North Carolina signer, saw most of his hiccups, but those problems were resolved once he adjusted to the speed and power of the All-American defensive ends. after the first or two days of practice.

Stewart showed up in Orlando with a reputation for being a fast catcher with great play capability, no matter where he lined up or who was protecting him. The Texas A&M petitioner has maintained that reputation throughout the week during training.

Stewart may not be very big, but he’s so quick and explosive in his breaks that the defenders couldn’t keep him under control. He had a quiet performance in the game but that shouldn’t detract from everything he showed during the week.

Another receiver who had quiet play but was excellent all week of training, Preston has all the tools to be a reliable playmaker for Alabama. He has great hands, catches almost anything thrown at him, and does a great job of creating separation through a combination of speed over short areas and running techniques on the course.

Preston has a good build, and it was clear that he knows how to use his frame and length to his advantage, giving his quarterback all the space he can get to take the ball from him. His ability to consistently take the ball away from his body was a great help in this area.

The week as a whole for Alabama’s future offensive lineman was one of the best weeks for any offensive player. During training he played tackle and guard, using his exceptional strength and agility to win reps. Booker really turned on when the intensity increased in full bearing training and play.

It’s clear his future is on guard and it showed when he could really start throwing defensive linemen around. Alabama coaching staff will help him overcome some technical quirks that have caused his problems in training and play.

It was difficult for the running backs to show their skills due to how the workouts were structured, but there were some great moments from the backs during the match. In the game, Pettaway’s stats on the ground weren’t anything to write home about, but he showed good patience to let the game develop and explosive once he saw the fold.

The North Carolina signer also had one of the best catches of the week when he made a twisted catch in the game.
