Learning from a multitude of former collegiate and professional stars, a select handful of prospects caught the eyes of the instructors, earning honors as the top performer at their respective position.

The Explosive Southern Pigskin Camp at Calvary Day School brought out some of the best talent in the Coastal Georgia region.

Learning from a multitude of former collegiate and professional stars, a select handful of prospects caught the eyes of the instructors, earning honors as the top performer at their respective position.

Here is a look at the award winners from Saturday.

Top Offensive Lineman Prospect: Alex Herndon (Calvary Day School), Class of 2016

Herndon has a solid frame to which he should be able to add considerable weight over the next couple of years. He impressed the coaches on Saturday with his outstanding footwork and his nasty streak in the trenches. His position coaches noted that he possesses “real Division I potential”.

Top Defensive Lineman Prospect: Anthony Washington (Glynn Academy), Class of 2016

Washington’s best attributes were easily his attitude, aggressiveness and eagerness to learn. It was a tough battle between him and teammate Cordarro Stoute for the top lineman award, but Washington made quick work of his matchups during the one-on-one showcase to end the afternoon.

Top Linebacker Prospect: Keshawn Dyson (Cross Creek), Class of 2016

Dyson is built more like a defensive end than a linebacker, but he surprisingly displayed tremendous athleticism and fluidity of movement during individual drills. He could eventually make the move down to the trenches, but he collisions receivers well enough to warrant consideration at linebacker as well.

Top Running Back Prospect: Antonio Wimbush (Camden County), Class of 2015

Coming off of winning the Top Overall Performer Award as the NUC Five-star Camp in Orlando, Wimbush continued his momentum by flourishing against elite competition on Saturday. Though he lacks prototypical size, he has enough quickness to avoid defenders in a phone booth. He was also one of the fastest players in attendance, timing at a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash.

Top Wide Receiver Prospect: Mack Nash (Camden County), Class of 2016

Nash actually plays tight end for the Wildcats, and he proved to be simply too much for defenders to handle on Saturday. His frame is perfect for the position, and he moves surprisingly well for a man of his stature. He is a player whose recruitment should really take off in the near future.

Top Defensive Back Prospect: Adrien Cross (Glynn Academy), Class of 2015

We knew coming into the camp that Cross had exceptional genes, as his brother played college football at Kentucky. Cross proved that he is an elite athlete in his own right, as his 4.47 40-yard dash tied for the fastest time of the afternoon. He also displayed quick feet and above-average technique when defending against the pass in drills.

Top Quarterback Prospect: Kemuan Tillman (Effingham County), Class of 2015

Tillman is still relatively new to the quarterback position, as the 2013 season was his first under center. Despite lagging behind in terms of experience, Tillman possesses a lot of natural arm talent. He also is a natural athlete who is capable of making plays with his feet. He will continue to improve tremendously as he gets more reps at the position.
