WR Antonio Williams – Clemson

Antonio Williams

The first practices belonged to the players of offensive skills. The receivers appeared sharp, fast and on point regularly beating the best defenders. By lining up inside during combined course drills or outside in one-on-one, Williams beats anyone who lines up against him. One of the first champions in sight on Sunday.

WR Shazz Preston – Alabama commit

Shazz Preston

Preston has been a dynamic receiving threat during his high school career in Louisiana and is continuing to show directing skills through the first two workouts this week.

By preparing defenders and blasting through his cuts to achieve separation, Preston created great passing widows for Icon quarterbacks. When targeted on Sunday, Preston is one of those guys who could have a big impact on the final score.

Receivers made the quarterbacks good this week and Marshall more than did his bit. A big frame with long arms and speed, Marshall makes it look unfair, even going up against five and four star defenders. One of the best around, and he still sees his stock increase.

The Under Armor roster is peppered with future SEC defenders, and Crimson Tide fans can expect great things from their four-star signer. Anderson didn’t back down from the challenge, going up against top defenders while standing out against other elite receivers.

The hands, speed and separation on the courses were impressive from Anderson in the early preparations for match day.

The frame, the athleticism and the technique are there for Williams. As his game evolves, the next big step is to add weight to his four-star skills. Williams had an impressive show during the one-on-one Thursday morning. Incredible advantage with Williams’ play.

There are a lot of “dudes” on the Under Armor roster and Gracial is one of those guys. Gracial is a physical specimen with and without straps. During the first one-on-one round for the linesmen, Gracial showed why he is a four-star with the All-American Game invitation.
