Top Performers In Final 2019 FAU Football Camp
FAU held its final camp session this past Saturday, June 15th, 2019, while hosting another 200 plus prospects ranging from 9th grade to Junior college. FAUOwlsnest.com was on hand to see which possible future Owls stood out amongst the rest.
Jermaine Roberson - The Pahokee quarterback (pictured above) was all over the field Saturday making plays while working out at the wide receiver. Roberson particularly dominated the 1-on-1 drills catching six of seven passes while running a variety of routes and showing good ball skills. At 6-0 165lbs he has already drawn some comparisons to FAU signee Deante Nelson who played at Pahokee. Coach DJ McCarthy offered Roberson shortly after the camp.
Jordan Brooks-Wess - The Navaro College wide receiver showed elite speed and route running on Saturday beating numerous defensive backs in 1-on-1 and 7-on-7 drills. Brooks Wess' story is a bit unique, he walked onto SMU's football team in the fall of 2018 found himself playing right away special teams. The Texas native found some success, but left the Group of 5 school looking for a program that will put him on scholarship. While itís unclear if he can play right away, the Owls' coaching staff went ahead and offered the speedy wideout.
Frankie Burgess - The 6-3 210LBS defensive end showed explosive pass rushing ability when working with FAU coaches during individual drills. Burgess, who plays basketball at Pahokee and just started playing football this past spring, has the frame many schools look for at the defensive end. Burgess announced an offer from FIU prior to Saturday's camp, and added FAU later that day. He also has reported interest from both WKU, and USF.
This is the third and final recruiting camp of the summer for FAU. The three camps featured over 700 prospects.
