Allmond impresses onlookers at NIKE

One of the most impressive looking athletes who showed up at the NIKE Camp held in Los Angeles on Sunday was Jayson Allmond (6-1, 248, 4.62) from Bloomington, Calif. It was obvious that Allmond was well acquainted with the weight room and that he works very hard on staying in shape.

Allmond's numbers in the weight room are very impressive. His current bench is 385, his squat is 450 and his power clean is 275. He recorded a 33.5 vertical at USC's camp a year ago.

Allmond was just as impressive at NIKE on Sunday. He was told that he was one of the top linebacker prospects at the camp and that he was very much in the running for the camp's MVP at the linebacker position.

"I was very proud of my (NIKE Camp) performance," Allmond said. "I still need to work on a couple of things that will make me better for the next level."

Allmond isn't satisfied with one solid camp performance and will try to attend USC's overnight camp, ASU's one day, UCLA's one day and hopefully Oregon State's three-day camp.
