Several of the top prospects in the Toledo area were on hand Friday evening at the 4th & GOAL Training combine. Who were the top five performers at the event?
DeShone Kizer: One of Ohio's top 2014 quarterback prospects did not go through the individual testing, but did take part in position drills. Kizer threw the ball well, even though he is still involved with the Toledo Central Catholic basketball team. Currently holds offers from the likes of Alabama, LSU, Michigan State, Northwestern, and others. Showed off a strong arm, and threw an accurate ball. A true dual-threat signal caller.
Paul Moses: Another top 2014 prospect from Toledo Central Catholic, Moses holds three offers to date, including Nebraska. Worked out as a runningback, and caught the ball well, but probably projects as a linebacker at the college level. Although he is an extremely physical football player, and that usually doesn't translate to combine football, Moses ran well and looked the part of a BCS recruit.
Sam Bruno: The Anthony Wayne athlete projects as a safety at the next level, and is drawing MAC interest at this time. Bruno ran consecutive hand-timed forty yard dash times of 4.41, and also shined in the position drills. Measured in a 6-foot-1, 190-pounds, and he also caught the football well performing as a runningback/slot receiver. Definitely worthy of looks from the MAC programs, and a player that could earn offers at the summer camps.
Tyson Proctor: Ran consecutive hand-timed 4.34 fortys, which got everyone's attention. Also ran a sub 4.0 shuttle time. Proctor is a long armed, 6-foot, 160-pound, athlete, and he played combine better than anyone in attendance, walking away with the MVP award. He also covered extremely well in position drills, and is a 2014 prospect to watch in Ohio. Not on the recruiting radar yet, and will need to go to the college camps this summer to earn offers, but the speed is impressive.
Zach Sandwisch: Only a freshman, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound, linebacker from Woodmore (OH) is a prospect to watch for the Ohio class of 2016. Was one of the few attendees to run a sub 7.0 time in the L-cone drill, which was impressive. Sandwisch also showed well in coverage against the top runningbacks, and looked the part of a future college recruit. Started last year as a freshman and impressed.
