Hula Bowl had some of the Top HBCU’s Pro Prospects in this past week’s game located in Orlando, Florida.
Davius Richard from NCCU had a three-for-five day with a solid performance. The NCCU product had a good week of practice leading up to the Hula Bowl. I am confident with the right system and the right coach that can enhance his play-calling abilities and decision making Richard can be a good project prospect. Richard must continue to improve with the HBCU Legacy Bowl as his final opportunity.
Mikey Victor from Alabama State also had a great week and, the 6’3 cornerback held his own. Victor can continue to elevate his game, and will probably will be a steal in the right defensive package like a 3-4 or 4-4 defense. I still feel like teams should try him at safety at the next level, but he will get another opportunity to shine at the East/West Shrine Game. He was called up after a great week in Orlando.
Joshua Heyward from Benedict College was the most productive HBCU Prospect with three tackles and a pass break up. I believe Hayward is raw and with solid coaching and a good scheme, such as the Eagles, Bucs, or Lions, I feel Heyward can turn out to be a polished player over time.
We would like to thank all the supporters throughout the whole year who supported NFL Draft Diamonds and Pittman’s Pocket. We love our HBCUs ?.
