LAKE BUENA VISTA — Practice sessions for the Under Armour All-American game are all about intensity as players from all over the country (26 different states) go head-to-head for bragging rights. The first day of practice produced some real highlights, but the intensity amped up on Monday. Here are five players who really stood out on day two.
Receiver Ermon Lane (6-2, 172, Homestead, FL High)
Lane made several big plays on Monday and was the only guy to get the best of cornerback Jabril Peppers. Lane hustled, competed hard and showed why he’s one of the top receivers in the country. Lane was able to get behind the cornerbacks on team Nitro throughout the practices.
Receiver Travis Rudolph (6-0, 189, West Palm Beach, FL Cardinal Newman)
Rudolph continues to show why he’s an All-American. Monday he arguably caught the most passes for team Highlight. Rudolph had a nasty touchdown against Jalen Tabor where he nearly shook Tabor out of his cleats. The biggest thing Rudolph brings to the table is consistent play.
Cornerback Jabril Peppers (6-1, 210, Paramus, NJ Catholic)
Peppers is a man that shouldn’t be picked on at cornerback no matter who he’s up against. Peppers basically had his side on lock down except for the few times he went up against Ermon Lane.
Quarterback Brandon Harris (6-3, 186, Boosier City, LA Parkway)
Harris is by far the best quarterback on team Nitro early on and on Monday he was truly spinning the ball with a lot of velocity on it. Harris has been accurate with his passes early on especially on the deep ball.
Safety Jamal Adams (6-0, 199, Lewisville, TX Hebron)
Adams is a trash talking machine but he can definitely back it up on the field. I haven’t safety all week that has the reaction time that Adams does on run plays. Adams has been one of the top players of the week so far after two days of Under Armour practices.
