Two days are down and there’s two days to go. The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine is at the mid-point, and we have some results in for the local guys. The 757 is sending players to the league…. Here’s the latest:
North Carolina State became the first to jump on board for a Tallwood junior. Christian Byrum has put in the work on a Tallwood team that struggled last year. Byrum camped last summer as a sophomore, led his defense from the safety position, and now he’s getting the recruiting attention. That first offer is a big one.
Cox utilityman Bryan Campbell has been fielding interest from high academic institutions. After a junior season that’s seen him play plenty of roles on the offensive side of the ball for the Falcons, Bryan is getting an increased amount of recruiting attention.
The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine got underway today, featuring no less than five players with local ties. The biggest bragging rights go to Ocean Lakes High School.

The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine is underway. The four day event tests the measurables of prospective NFL athletes as the look to leave college and enter the NFL draft. Each day features players from different positions.
The big offer lists just keep getting bigger. Lake Taylor big man Jalyn Holmes added another big offer this week, which might only make his decision harder when it comes time to figure that out. The options for Holmes are beginning to be mind boggling. Titans Coach Hank Sawyer has to be proud of the college attention his team is getting.
Highly sought after Class of 2014 prospect Quin Blanding is already calling an end to his recruitment. With dozens of offers in hand and a top ten that included UVA, UNC, NC State, Florida State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan, MIami, Clemson and West Virginia last month, Blanding has some good options to choose from.
It was just a week ago that Bethel defensive tackle Ricky Walker picked up his eighth scholarship offer. Today, Walker picked up offer number nine. His recruiting stock is rising and his offer list is growing like the blue chipper he’s become.
Oscar Smith quarterback Dashawn Blow has made his college commitment. After a late blooming recruitment, Dashawn has finally found his college home. He’s headed out of state, but he’s playing Division I ball.
($$) In a sharp turn of events, the Peninsula’s hottest recruit for the Class of 2014 has completely cleaned the slate. Crabber running back Marshawn Williams has transferred out of Hampton High School and has decommitted from Virginia Tech. He’ll still be in the PD, and he’s re-opened his recruitment.
