Marlon Humphrey earns defensive MVP honors at Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge

By Mike Herndon | mherndon@al.com

Hoover defensive back Marlon Humphrey, widely considered the top college football prospect in Alabama, was named the Defensive Skill MVP at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge camp last weekend at Chicago's Soldier Field.

Humphrey and Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain quarterback Kyle Allen, a recent Texas A&M commitment and the camp's Offensive Skill MVP, led Team Yahoo! to the championship of the camp's 7-on-7 tournament on Sunday. According to Rivals, Humphrey led all players in the tournament with five pass break-ups.

Humphrey, a five-star prospect according to Rivals and 247Sports who is also a track and field standout, is thought be a heavy lean to Alabama -- alma mater of his father, former Tide great Bobby Humphrey -- be he told AL.com last month that South Carolina, Florida State and Mississippi State are also in the mix.

Also standing out in 7-on-7 play in Chicago on Sunday was Auburn commitment Tre Williams of St. Paul's, whom Rivals tabbed Saturday as the best linebacker at the camp.
