Unranked wide receiver George Campbell was named the unofficial "combine MVP" by Hamilton. Considering that he's only a 2015 recruit, that's extremely impressive. Expect Campbell to be on the of the main recruits in the 2015 class.
He has a warm interest in Florida (no offer, yet) according to his 247sports interest list, and he's already picked up offers from Michigan, Mississippi State, N.C. State, South Florida, UCF and Vanderbilt.
Bo Scarbrough is one of the bigger names from the 2014 class and he's an Alabama commitment. He already runs like an elite back, and it looks like he put up some good numbers at this combine.
For a quarterback, Ford put up some very impressive measurables, especially his 40 time. He has yet to pick up an offer (247Sports).

Best 40 Times
George Campbell Via 247Sports
1. George Campbell, N/R WR: 4.44 *2015
2. Johnathan Thomas, N/R RB: 4.47
3a. Corey Holmes, 4-star WR: 4.48
3b. Chis Godwin, 4-star WR: 4.48

5a. Adam Choice, 4-star ATH: 4.56
5b. Evan Berry, 4-star CB: 4.56
6. Bo Scarbrough, 5-star RB: 4.59
Again, it's great to see a sophomore on top of the leaderboard amongst older recruits, and it's worth repeating that a lot should be expected of Campbell as a college football recruit.
Overall, any 40-yard dash in the four second range is excellent, especially at this level. Scarbrogh's may not seem all that impressive for a running back, but he has very good "game-speed" when he runs the football.
Some of these recruits have very intriguing interests list. Michigan is on top of Corey Holmes' list (247Sports), followed by Notre Dame. Snodgrass has a top two (247Sports) of Ohio State and Notre Dame, with OSU listed as the "warmer" interest" and Berry has picked up offers from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, South Carolina and Tennessee according to his 247Sports interest list.

Bo Scarbrough Via 247Sports
There are a ton of very impressive recruits in the 2014 class, and many of them were featured at this combine.
The big two names are undoubtedly Scarbrough and Humphrey, and one of them is already committed to Alabama. Humphrey has Alabama on top of his interest list according to 247Sports, but he also has offers from and "warm interest" in Florida Mississippi State and South Carolina.
He'll be a big-time commitment for whichever program lands him.
Another elite 2014 prospect worth mentioning that was at this combine is 4-star tight end Jeb Blazevich. He's ranked as the No. 6 overall tight end according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings and he checked in at 6'4.5'', 223 pounds, ran a 5.01 40, 4.56 pro-agility, 7.32 L-cone and had a 33.5-inch vertical according to Hamilton's report.
Blazevich has a top six of Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Ole Miss according to 247Sports, and he'll be one of the bigger recruiting pickups in the 2014 class.
