NOTABLE PLAYERS:

Travis Shaw, a class of 2022 defensive lineman from Grimsley High School in Greensboro, NC was one of many highly ranked national players that attended. The 5-star prospect was very powerful and showed why he is one of the nation's best.

Some other notable recruits attending were class of 2021 linebacker RaRa Dillworth of Glenn High School in Kernersville, NC. The 4-star UNC commit was very impressive and rook home honors as the fastest player there with a 4.43 laser-timed 40.

The most impressive linebacker in attendance was class of 2022 Jalon Walker out of Salisbury (NC) High. Walker, a 4-star recruit won the MVP honor for his position group.

Also in attendance was Albert Redd, a 3-star linebacker from Glenn High School in Kernersville, NC. Redd is a prospect that stock continues to rise on the camp/combine scene.

Class of 2023 defensive back Jamil Tucker from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh, NC was also in attendance. Tucker has an early offer from Florida International.
