The summer camp season is over and the Rivals.com recruiting analysts were all over the country starting with the Penn State NIKE Camp way back in the first weekend of May to the ESPN Rise Gridiron Kings tournament at the end of July that wrapped things up.
Heading into our next set of evaluation meetings and a new set of rankings due at the end of August, here are our first and second-team offensive players from the summer events as well as some who earned honorable mention honors. This list is led by recent FSU commitment Jameis Winston, who could be battling for five-star status in our next release.
2011 ALL-CAMP TEAM - OFFENSE
QB Jameis Winston, 6-4/200, Hueytown, Ala.
Winston Elite 11 Highlights Camps: Ohio State Elite 11, Elite 11
Committed to:Florida State Performance: Winston was the best quarterback at the regional Elite 11 at Ohio State and then at the final Elite 11 in Malibu as he showed off a strong, consistent arm. Throw in his field vision and his decision-making ability and he showed he's not just a guy who can run and pass, he's a true quarterback.
RB Randy Johnson, 5-9/170, Miami (Fla.) Norland
Johnson at Miami NIKE Camps: The Opening, Gridiron Kings
Committed to:Miami Performance: Johnson showed some amazing footwork during one-on-one drills at The Opening and at Gridiron Kings he was a key weapon with great speed and superior hands for a running back. He was one of the most explosive running backs we've seen all summer.
RB Johnathan Gray, 5-11/190, Aledo, Texas
Gray Highlights Camps: The Opening
Committed to:Texas Performance: Maybe no running back looks better physically than Gray, who has speed and strength and showed off good hands catching the ball out of the backfield. In fact, he was so natural catching the football out of the backfield and in the slot, he could have passed for a wide receiver.
WR Stefon Diggs, 6-0/185, Olney (Md.) Good Counsel
Diggs at VTO Combine Camps: Friday Night Lights
Performance: The flashy wideout backs up his talk with great game. He busted off numerous big plays at Friday Night Lights and showed another gear when pulling way from cornerbacks.
WR Thomas Johnson, 6-0/180, Dallas (Texas) Skyline
Johnson Highlights Camps: The Opening, Gridiron Kings
Committed to:Texas Performance: Johnson is a quick receiver who caught everything that came his way. He does a great job finding holes in a defense and exploiting them and he adjusts to poorly thrown balls very well. He is a possession guy who will move the chains a lot at Texas.
TE Griffin Gilbert, 6-5/210, Austin (Texas) Lake Travis
Gilbert Highlights Camps: Texas 7-on-7 State Championships, Gridiron Kings
Committed to:TCU Performance: TCU got a talented pass catcher who does an excellent job of using his hands to catch the ball no matter where it is thrown. He showed an ability to stretch the field at Gridiron Kings but more than anything he was reliable in the red zone.
OL Khaliel Rodgers, 6-2/300, Bear (Del.) Red Lion Christian, 2013
Rodgers Top Gun Highlights Camps: Rutgers NIKE Camp, NUC Northeast Ultimate 100, Top Gun Camp
Performance: Rodgers has dominated at every camp he's been at this summer and has taken on prospects with more than 100 total scholarship offers. He belongs on this list with older players because that's who he went against, and more than held his own.
OL Curtis Riser, 6-3/283, DeSoto, Texas
Riser at Houston NIKE Camps: Houston NIKE Camp, The Opening
Committed to:Texas Performance: The Texas commit has rebounded well from injuries after his junior season. At The Opening he really showed his competitive side and was excitable after winning more and more one-on-one reps.
OL Austin Golson, 6-6/275, Prattville (Ala.), 2013
Camps: Jimbo Fisher Football Camp
Committed to: Florida State
Performance: The rising junior was outstanding at Florida State. He took on a number of major college prospects at defensive end and won a majority of his battles. The dancing bear plays with a chip on his shoulder and gets after it on every snap.
OL Zach Banner, 6-9/310, Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes
Banner Highlights Camps: B2G Elite Camp, Seattle NIKE Camp, The Opening
Performance: Banner's size is already pro level and he thoroughly improved from camp to camp this summer as he improved his footwork and balance. If he keeps getting better, watch out.
OL Derek Edinburgh, 6-8/320, New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr
Edinburgh at LSU NIKE Camps: Florida Summer Camp
Committed to:LSU Performance: An enormous 6-foot-8 tackle with a reasonably good build, Edinburgh has quick feet, which allows him to square up well against defenders. He's definitely four-star material, though he could stand to tone up some.
ATH Nelson Agholor, 6-2/180, Tampa (Fla.) Berkeley Prep
Agholor at Badger 7-on-7 Camps: The Opening, Gridiron Kings
Performance: The talented athlete showed that he can be an excellent wide receiver at the next level with his performance in Orlando. Quick off the line, gets open, and can make a variety of catches. With the ball in his hands, he can quickly put defenders in his dust. Before that he made some amazing grabs at The Opening.
