And more from the Shrine Combine...

So if the DBs were the bomb at Saturday’s combine, did they shut down all the receivers?

Not quite. Several observers singled out two players in particular; Southern Durham’s Anthony Creecy and Raleigh Sanderson’s Matt James.

Creecy, who already has 29 scholarship offers, showed dramatic shiftniness and agility and, combining that with excellent rout-running ability, was hard to cover. James, who is 6-foot-6 with good speed, ran a lot of deep patterns and used his size to out-reach defenders for many passes.

Want somebody a little bigger on the receiving end? Ethan Farmer of South Columbus High, recently an Observer Sleeper of the Day, performed very well, playing physically and making himself almost impossible for LBs to stop in one-on-one drills. --Stan Olson

Do you have any kind of a feel on how many schools are recruiting Farmer as a TE rather than a DL?
