Opening Preview: Team Alpha Pro

Nike has been rolling its camps around the country since early March and it will all come to end in Beaverton, Oregon on July 7th at Nike Headquarters.

The elite-of-the-elite prospects from the Class of 2015 and a handful of 2016 prospects will all participate in the Sparq Challenge as well as be divided into teams to participate in a 7-on-7 tournament as well as the linemen challenge.

Among the prospects attending the events are a number of Florida targets as well as three Gator commits.

In the days leading forward Gator Country will break down each team and give you a preview of who to watch on that team as we prepare for the Opening.

Each team will draft three quarterbacks once they are in Oregon but the first team we will preview is Team Alpha Pro.

Alpha Pro has Gator receiver commit Derrick Dillon on the team and he will have a number of top targets to recruit.

Receiver George Campbell will be lining up opposite of Dillon and the Louisiana receiver will definitely be recruiting Campbell to join him in Gainesville.

Also on team Alpha Pro is linebacker Tevon Coney who will have the opportunity to play alongside Tennessee linebacker Cecil Cherry.

Playing safety for Alpha Pro will be top Florida target Jaquan Johnson who many believe likes both Florida and Miami.

Participating in the offensive line portion for Alpha Pro will be once Florida targets on the defensive line in Kahlil McKenzie and Adam McLean.

Dillon and Campbell will get the opportunity to work with former NFL quarterback Jordan Palmer who will be the offensive coordinator for team Alpha Pro.

Sione Taufou’u will serve as the quarterback coach and Aeneas Williams will serve as the defensive coordinator for the team.
