Oregon State Camp 2013

 

 

 

 

Coach Riley + Karif Byrd

Cerritos, Calif. - Several hundred football prospects descended upon Cerritos College on Saturday to show off their skills and learn from coaches from Oregon State and Cal Poly at the Get It Done Sports Camp.  The day kicked off with the linemen and ended with some spirited one-on-one action from the skill positions.

Organized by Karif Byrd, a former college football player at Georgia who also spent time playing in Europe and Arena Football.  Byrd now works as a trainer to professional and amateur athletes in the Los Angeles area.

This year, Byrd's company hosted not one but two camps.  After a successful football camp in Fullerton last year, also coached by the Oregon State staff, Byrd set up two camps this year, one at Cerritos College (Southern California) and one at Diablo Valley College (Northern California).

The lineman group, which took the Cerritos College field in the morning under cloudy skies, was small with approximately 30 players participating.  Some of the line standouts included:

  • Tyler Puccio, a defensive tackle from Moorpark (Calif.) Moorpark was anxious to show his skills at the camp and learn from the coaches.  He is still looking for his first offer and plans to work on his body during the summer to add strength.
  • Harry Whitson, a senior from Redondo Beach (Calif.) Redondo Union stood out in one on ones. 
  • Ramsey Hufford, a 6'3", 296 lb OL from Newport Beach (Calif.) Newport Harbor, also showed well in the one-on-ones.   He made the Cal High Sports second team for juniors in 2012.
  • It's a big projection, but keep an eye out for 2017 prospect OL Andrew Wickens from Downey (Calif.) Warren.  He held his ground nicely for a kid who just graduated from 8th grade.
Daniel Khan made some big catches at the camp.

The skill position players took the field next, with approximately 250 players in attendance.  Some players who got our attention included:

  • Kishawn Holmes, a three-star running back from Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta.  Instead of working out as a running back however, the 5'8", 178 pound athlete lined up at wide receiver to show off his versatility.  He was impressive in his work ethic and his ability to fend off defenders and make the catch. We were constantly seeing him jump to the front of the line in order to maximize his reps and exposure to the coaches. 
  • Another wide receiver who stood out was Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame athlete Daniel Khan.  The 5'11", 165 pound wideout didn't grab attention until he hit the field in one-on-one action.  He caught everything.  He currently holds an offer from Pennsylvania.
  • Colorado State is the lone offer for two-star Rancho Santa Margarita wide receiver Jeremy McNichols, who showed good body control and hands during the camp.
  • Justin Holmes, a three star prospect from Roseville (Calif.) Oakmont made the long drive to take part in the Southern California camp.  The 6-foot-3 , 195 pound prospect had excellent size and ran some nice routes during one-on-one action.  He currently holds offers from San Jose St, Sacramento State, and Ohio.
  • Lakewood (Calif.) Lakewood wide receiver Jerin Scroggins also stood out during wide receiver drills.  The 5-foot-11, 180 pound receiver is still awaiting his first offer.
  • One name that should be familiar to Beaver fans is Tyriq Gilmore, a 2016 wide receiver from Lakewood (Calif.) Lakewood. The younger brother of current Beaver receiver, Malik, he is a long and lanky prospect who shows promise. He's bigger/stronger than most soon to be sophomores out on the field and he held his own against older competition.
  • 2015 tight end Ben Humphreys from Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei stood out for his sheer size and athleticism.  He caught several tough balls and was able to put himself in a position to make the catch by outmuscling defenders.
  • Dashawn Gordon, from Los Alamitos, Calif.  is a receiver to watch.
  • Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne athlete Uchenna Nwosu impressed the Oregon State coaches enough to earn himself a scholarship offer on the spot.  The Beavers like Nwosu as a linebacker.
  • Long Beach (Calif.) Poly two-star cornerback Elijah Moody had a solid day at the camp as well.  He currently holds offers from Colorado State, Hawaii, Idaho, and Nevada.
  • 2015 cornerback prospect Iman Marshall from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly made an appearance at the camp, although he did not participate in drills.  Marshall is one of the top corners in the 2015 class and had a solid showing among older players at the Rivals Five Star Challenge last week in Chicago.  Marshall holds  at least seventeen offers, including the entire PAC 12 (except Stanford and Arizona).
  • Also making an appearance to see the coaches and cheer on friends were 2015 wide receiver prospect Cordell Broadus (Snoop Dogg's son)  from Diamond Bar, Calif. and Naijiel Hale (the late Nate Dogg's son), a 2014 three-star cornerback from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco.  Neither participated in the workouts. On Sunday afternoon, Broadus tweeted, "Oregon State...I'm interested".
