Army All-American Bowl 2014: Top Combine Stars and Fastest 40 Times

0 of 6

    With the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl set for Saturday, another round of elite senior recruits will be showcasing their talent on a national stage. 

    However, many 2015 prospects are also in San Antonio to show what they can do at the U.S. Army National Combine. This is a great event for juniors and sophomores to attend, as it allows them to test and compete with other underclassmen with college-level talent.

    Among the many participants, a few stars have emerged at the event via their testing results.

    NOTE: 40-yard dash times are hand-held times, as electronic/FAT results were not available to the public at time of publish. 

    Player evaluations are based on review of tape at Scout.comRivals and 247Sports.

Lazaro Cepedes, RB (2015)

1 of 6

    Lazaro Cepedes is a 5'11", 185-pound running back from Miami who attends G. Holmes Braddock High School.

    Being from South Florida, a recruit has to do a lot to stand out in such a talented pool of players. Cepedes clearly understands this, as he ran a sizzling 4.32 40-yard dash, per 247Sports.

    Keep an eye on Cepedes, as he's sure's to climb up recruiting boards and rankings this spring. 

Korey Charles, ATH (2016)

2 of 6

    Although he will not sign until 2016, athlete Korey Charles has the speed to run with any player in any age group. The Florida native clocked a 4.38 40-yard dash time, according to 247Sports

    At 5'10" and 160 pounds, Charles likely will play receiver or cornerback at the next level. With the speed he has, he won't have any issues keeping up with older players.

    North Carolina has already offered, per 247Sports

Marcus Taylor, RB (2015)

3 of 6

    Marcus Taylor is another recruit who is relatively unknown at this point. Yet, he is doing his best to make a name for himself, evidenced by him running consecutive 4.28 and 4.30 40-yard dashes, according to 247Sports

    Taylor is a running back from Highland Springs High School in Virginia. He's going to make some college offensive coordinator in the Mid-Atlantic region happy in a few seasons. 

Kyle Horton, WR (2015)

4 of 6

    Kyle Horton is a receiver from Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte. Not much is known about him; however, that should change after Friday's combine.

    Horton blazed a 4.37 40-yard dash, according to 247Sports. Look for Horton's stock to rapidly rise after showing off elite speed. 

Jay Bradford, RB (2015)

5 of 6

    Another talented offensive player who had a great showing at the combine is 4-star running back Jay Bradford. Committed to Texas A&M, Bradford posted a 4.34 40-yard dash, says 247Sports.

    The Texan is nearly 5'11" and weighs 191 pounds. His speed and quickness should make him a nice fit in the Aggies' spread offense. 

Joshuwa Holloman, RB (2015)

6 of 6

    The player who had the most complete day at the combine is 3-star running back Joshuwa Holloman. At 5'11" and 185 pounds, the Michigan native had great results in each testing event.

    Holloman ran a 4.3 40-yard dash, exploded for 41 inches in the vertical jump and hustled to a 4.19 shuttle time. He also told 247Sports that Ohio State could be close to offering him a scholarship.
