If you are around Charlotte and are looking for some of the top talent in North Carolina and the surrounding states, the College Bound Athletics 2014 Football Exposure Weekend is the place to be.
The CBA will be hosting their exposure camp and 7on7 tournament at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC this weekend, as it is a two-day event with registration beginning at noon Saturday.
Several recruits that are ranked by Rivals are supposed to be in attendance this weekend, including some such as [db]Mark Fields[/db] (South Carolina Commit), [db]Juval Mollette[/db], [db]Darian Roseoro[/db], [db]Shy Tuttle[/db], and [db]Kelly Bryant[/db] (Clemson commit), all who are ranked in the Rivals250.

Mollette is a very tall, lengthy wide receiver from Randleman(NC), who has narrowed his list to North Carolina and Clemson, with Clemson having the slight advantage. He has the hands and stride to develop into a big-time receiver down the road.
Roseboro and Tuttle will be the names that stand out the most of that group. Roseboro is a strong side defensive end from Linolnton high school and has several Division I programs looking to get him into their program. Tuttle is yet another; ranked number 25 nationally and sixth at his position in defensive tackle. He is yet another high-profile recruit that will be big-time for a program in the class of 2015.
Bryant, who just committed to Clemson last week, is ranked as the fifth best dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2015 and he has it all. Last season, he threw for 2.665 yards and 29 touchdowns, while racking up 1,174 yards on the ground for 18 touchdowns.
However, there will be several other recruits in action, looking to compete and beat the best around the East coast. Other players such as [db]Eric Assoua[/db], [db]Corey Bell[/db] (UNC commit), [db]Kaleb Chalmers[/db], [db]Rocky Reid[/db] (Tennessee commit), [db]Mook Reynolds[/db] (Virginia Tech commit), [db]Trae Sharpe[/db], [db]Van Smith[/db] (Clemson commit), and [db]Carl Tucker[/db] (UNC commit), along with several others will be on the field competing.
"The talent in this region is so great that there aren't enough scouts and recruiters to have a chance to see every athlete," Alexander said. "By hosting a camp in the North and South Carolina area, it gives so many more athletes the chance to be seen."
"The draw for the whole weekend is the exposure," he said. "There is a lot of opportunity to be seen in a far greater capacity than they would individually during the season."
Athletes will be tested individually in the 40-yard dash, pro agility shuttle run, L drill, vertical jump, broad jump, pass rush, pass block, lineman challenge and one-on-one drills. Following the combine, athletes are invited to join the 7on7 tournament, coming individually to be placed into teams, or with a seven-man team of their own. The tournament will be randomized in a playoff system that begins Saturday, April 26 and finishes the final rounds on Sunday.
No doubt about it though, several high profile players around the North and South Carolina area will be out, as NCPreps will be out and about throughout the event.
Listed below is the entire roster of who hopes to be there in Charlotte.
