Washington, D.C. - The Chesapeake Bowl practices began on Thursday ahead of Saturdays game. 247Sports was there to capture the action at Georgetown University.
Looks like Delando Johnson is doing well. If he only ran a 4.55 he would be a great prospect.
40 times are the most overrated useless measure of players ability. How often in a game does a player have to sprint 40 straight yards, 10 and 20 yards splits are far more important.

How are Cothren and Nelson playing in this game? I thought this was DC vs Maryland.

Chesapeake Bowl is the whole region (N.J., Pa., Del., Md., Va.), Crab Bowl is Baltimore vs. D.C.

Thanks Sean. Is this new?
I know 40 times are not everything, when I say great prospect I mean he is a great prospect as perceiived by others and receiving offers, 40 times are not the best gauge of football speed, but they matter.
I think he is a very solid player and would not be opposed to him getting an offer.
I think this is year three.
Oakes is providing live updates from the practices.
WASHINGTON, D.C.- Live updates from practices for the annual Chesapeake Bowl.
THanks, looked for the roster online.....just had the numbers and names, no heights/weights. I was curious to see the weights for Nelson, Cothran and Bell.
I'll see if he has a roster with heights and weights.
Any un-committed kids there? Or kids that our commits could try to sway?

No roster with heights and weights, just numbers.
From Oakes: Penn State defensive end commitment Curtis Cothran has been tough to handle in both days of practice for the North.
Here is the roster rundown:
Thanks - Edit you already posted about Cothran

Sean any chance we could pin a thread for commits in all the postseason all star games? Us posters can update it with the coverage threads etc. Just figured we could keep it all together, plus I completely missed this game somehow, and Im sure there others in the same boat.
I've noticed this to be especially true with linebackers and pass rushing ends. a 40 yard metric makes little sense. Bowman ran a 4.7 at the combine with over 20 backers running faster times yet you'd have a heck of a time convincing me any of those guys are quicker than him on the football field.
Crazy to me how many of those prospects really wanted PSU offers. Also crazy to think we turned down 3 four stars.
Forgot about Oren Burks, guess he committed to Vanderbilt.
BOwman has great football instincts and plays fast.......he is one of the best at anticipating plays as they develop - you are right he is much faster than his 40 time
Agreed. A good sign for the future when we can actually have a full class.
If they mattered Jerry Rice would have never even made the NFL, Terrell Suggs would not be a great LB in the NFL and list could go on for days.
Joakes won't answer my question on Nelson...
Lol - Joakes.
Is that Urban Meyer standing under the bleachers texting???
Still sour we missed out on Al-Rasheed Benton. Looked likle a MONSTER in his film & seemed like we were his top school over the summer. But I'll (very begrudgingly) trust the staff on this one.
