VIDEO: Locals star at Under Armour combine, George Campbell shines brightest

Under Armour held a combine at Tropicana Field prior to the game, and a number of locals had big performances.

But none were bigger than George Campbell's.
The East Lake junior-to-be, who has five college offers, showed why everyone thinks he'll be getting many many more by running a 4.44 in the 40, and clocking a 6.9-second L-cone drill.
Campbell, who had 30 catches for 766 yards and five touchdowns this season, was also pretty much unstoppable in 1-on-1 drills, using his 6-foot-5, 177-pound frame to catch most of the passes thrown his way.
Northeast quarterback Ryan Davis and his wide receiver Donterrio Fowler also were impressive, and Strawberry Crest's Alex Carswell was a favorite target of quarterbacks in the 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills after making some nice catches during 1-on-1 drills.
Quarterbacks Chase Litton (Wharton), Brad Mayes (Berkeley Prep) and Alex McGough (Gaither) also had good days.
St. Petersburg Catholic linemen Reilly Gibbons showed why he is considered a top left tackle prospect, and Montell McBride of Plant City opened some eyes among the recruiting analysts on hand.
