The players that really stood out for the Eagles during Tuesday's scrimmage games were twin brothers Shaun Prater and Shane Prater and running back Ronnell Grixby. Linebacker/running back Terrell Mayhue also showed some solid flashes of speed and explosion.

Shaun Prater is the only Eagle to hold a Division I offer at this point, but both Shane Prater and Grixby definitely remain on the radar screen of several Division I programs.
