Update: Unsigned Preps Road to Signing Day Bus Tour

Unsigned Preps

Today we visited the University of North Carolina and North Carolina Central Univ.

Highlights: Tyriq McCord (Tampa Jefferson) received a verbal offer from North Carolina and Kilu Fontaine (Tampa Tech) received a verbal offer from North Carolina Central. Charles Booth (Tampa Jefferson) had a good overall camp! He worked out as a WR today and really impress North Carolina coaches. Favian Upshaw (Titusville HS, QB ) ran a 4.47 in his 40 yard dash. “The Unsigned Preps” have competed and have been the highlights of the first two camps. North Carolina coaches were screaming “Them Florida Boys” after every drill. After the camp the players decided to become camp crashes “coming to take over your camp”!

We almost had our first casualty of the tour. Adrian Jenkins (Jefferson, WR) was almost kicked off the bus for singing Trey Songz while we were headed to lunch! He was reminded that, that is not pre game music! (jk/haha)

Highlights: When the camp started Team Unsigned Preps (unofficial title) began the camp crash! DeAndre James (Blake HS, DB) kicked off the camp with a beautiful left hand one hand catch. Boca Ciega linebackers Brandon Carter, Demmico Bristol, Elijah McClendon continued to get better at each camp and the college coaches took notice of their talents. The colleges surrounded those three and Shadow Williams (Land O Lakes, LB) refusing to let them leave without getting their information. Shadow re-route a RB knocking him to the ground and that made everybody erupt!

What was so exciting about this tour was the 23 players that went became new friends, competed and cheered for each other and started their recruiting process with this Road to Signing Day Bus Tour. The players had fun and we filmed all of the silly behind the scenes things that being on a bus for three days brings out. Camp is over and we are coming home Tampa, until next year!
