KISSIMMEE — Wharton DB Vernon Hargreaves III had a solid showing as Tampa Bay’s lone participant in Wednesday’s skills challenge leading up to Friday’s Under Armour All-America Game at Tropicana Field.

The Florida commit finished tied for second in a four-competitor field in the hands challenge for receivers and defensive backs.

Hargreaves, ESPN’s top-ranked cornerback, dropped an early pass from a machine and bobbled the final reception to complete the obstacle course in 30.56 seconds. He and uncommitted athlete Max Redfield (Mission Viejo, Calif.) finished 1.5 seconds behind LSU-bound cornerback Jeryl Brazil (Loranger, La.).

Zack Greenlee (Fresno State) won the quarterback skills challenge with a score of 258. That’s 50 points better than Miami commit Kevin Olsen (Wayne, N.J.). Ohio State-bound tight end Marcus Baugh edged Mississippi State commit Chris Jones by 0.11 seconds in the lineman obstacle course, and Alex Anzalone (Notre Dame) won the linebacker challenge.

The event will be shown tonight from 9-10 on ESPN2.
