Charlotte NFTC MVPs

Four-star offensive tackle Bentley Spain

CORNELIUS, N.C. – Despite being rainy, windy and temperatures hovering around 40 degrees, several big-time prospects were on hand at the Charlotte NFTC on Sunday. Below are the positional MVPs.

Offense

Quarterback

Will Grier-Davidson (N.C.) Day

The conditions made it extremely tough on every quarterback in attendance, but the Florida commit performed extremely well. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Grier has gotten much stronger in the past year and has quiet confidence about him. He showed good zip on his short to intermediate throws and nice touch on the deep ball.

Running Back

Caleb Kinlaw-Goose Creek (S.C.)

Kinlaw showed why he is top running back in South Carolina's 2014 class. At 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, Kinlaw is not the biggest back, but he has good speed and quickness. He also showed good agility and caught the ball well. The three-star running back claims offers from Arizona, Clemson, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech

Wide Receiver

Dominique Heath-Huntersville (N.C.) Hopewell

Heath came into Sunday as an under-the-radar prospect and left with the wide receiver MVP award. While he is not the biggest receiver, the 5-foot-9, 170-pound Heath showed good speed and soft hands. Heath does a nice job of getting in and out of his cuts and has a knack for getting open. He is a prospect to watch over the next few months.

Offensive Line

Bentley Spain-Charlotte (N.C.) Providence

Spain was dominant all day. He has really toned up and looked to be in great shape. The 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive tackle was relentless against every defensive lineman he faced. He really moves his feet extremely well and his initial punch overwhelmed several of his opponents. It is obvious that Spain has been working very hard and it paid off on Sunday. On the recruiting front, he is down to six schools – LSU, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina, Stanford and Virginia. He has decided not to do anymore interviews until he makes his college decision, which could come as early as this spring.

Defense

Defense Line

Enoch Smith Jr.-Chicago (IL) Mount Caramel

Smith made the long trip from the Midwest and did not disappoint. He was dominant in one-on-ones, driving offensive linemen all over the field. The 6-foot-2, 265-pound defensive tackle really fires off the ball and is extremely strong. He also plays with great leverage and does a nice job using his hands to get off blocks.

Linebacker

Christian Miller-Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley

Miller was impressive all day long. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Florida commit is a long, athletic prospect that has the ability to cover a lot of ground quickly. Miller is a smart football player and very good in space. He also takes good angles when pursuing the football and does a nice job playing under control.

Defensive Back

M.J. Stewart-Arlington (Va.) Yorktown

Stewart performed very well all day. He is an intense competitor and did not shy away from anyone. Although the 6-foot, 185-pound Stewart will likely play safety in college, he showed the cover skills of a cornerback. He is very physical and overpowered several receivers at the line of scrimmage. Stewart also gets in and out of his backpedal very smoothly and has great ball skills. He holds offers from Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Northwestern, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
