Way to go Monte Vista teammates Kevin Wexler and Ryan Neil. They came, competed and got noticed. Over 8 weeks of the Saturday Football Combine prep class paid off for these athletes. Both demonstrated the power and movement techniques used in the class to impress the scouts. Kevin went on to lead TWO of the testing events.
Norcal Preps Analyst report:
Coming from around the region to Contra Costa College on Saturday, prospects from the 2012 through 2015 classes were on hand for the inaugural NorCalPreps.com College Prospect Combine. With a day full of comprehensive testing and high level coaching, a number of hidden gems showed well, including strong performances from Freedom High School.
Ryan Neil 6-foot-5, 280 pounds OL Monte Vista (2012): Neil was the biggest prospect on hand with the raw ability to be a lineman to watch develop this season. He has good footwork on his pass protection sets and has a good initial burst off the line. Developing as an athlete will be important this summer, but the 6-foot-5 size alone should have colleges looking his direction.
Kevin Wexler 5-foot-11, 230 pounds DE Monte Vista (2012): Undersized on the defensive line, Wexler plays with good fundamentals. He gets off the ball and uses his hands well and has great instincts. He is an athlete who showed speed and agility and plays at a good pad level, but may be looked at as a possible linebacker option for the next level.
