Several defensive line prospects were at the 2010 FCA Combine in Little Rock.
Two of the biggest were Grady Ollison from Malvern and Joseph Treadwell from Pine Bulff. Ollison, who has offers from Arkansas and Tulsa, said he is also being recruited by Ole Miss, UCLA, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Kansas, Kansas State, and Auburn. Ollison stands 6'5" 280 and is athletic enough to play offensive tackle, defensive tackle, or even defensive end.
Treadwell, who does play both offensive line and defensive line, measured 6'4" 255. He is hearing from Arkansas, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, and Northwestern.
Defensive Tackle Glenn Nash, from Camden-Harmony Grove, is a 6'0" 335-pound prospect that can anchor the middle of a defensive line. He is hearing from Arkansas State and Missouri State.
Rashun Lewis, a 6'3" 300 pound defensive tackle from White Hall, is another good looking prospect. He is getting attention from Ole Miss.
One defensive line prospect from the Natural State that did not attend the combine is Dirk Tanner from Pulaski Academy. Tanner is 6'1" and 280 pounds. He has an offer from Louisiana Tech.
Marquez Massey is a 6'0" 265 pound defensive linean from Conway. Massey and his teammate Trevor Malbia both had solid combines.
Another Conway player, receiver Desmond Cox, went through workouts with Fayetteville running back Dylan Hale. The two players talked about their playoff meeting in 2009 and a potentail rematch in 2010.
Marco Vota from Greenwood and Brad Shearin from Jonesboro were two of the top linebackers at the combine. From opposite sides of the state, both players are being recruited by Arkansas, Tulsa, and Ole Miss among others. Shearin put up 27 reps of 225 on the bench press.
Ryan Williams, a fullback from El Dorado, was also impressive in the bench press. Williams, who also plays defensive line for the Wildcats, finished with 28 reps at 225.
El Dorado running back James Ford certainly benefits from Williams' blocking skills. Ford looks to be one of the top running backs again in the state. He is being recruited by Kansas, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and LSU.
Raphael "Rock" Caldwell from Rison and Anthony Richardson from White Hall were two of the other notable running backs in attendance.
Aubrey Garner is a 6'3" receiver from West Helena. Garner said he is talking to Arkansas, Louisiana Tech, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State. Garner ran the 40 in 4.62 seconds, which is very fast considering it was laser timed.
Caldwell also ran a 4.62 in the 40, while Cox posted a time of 4.68. Daris Scott from Lonaoke also ran a 4.68. Gabriel West from J.A. Fair ran a 4.72.
