Dallas NFTC: In case you missed it

Tom Hauck/ESPNHSAlief Taylor (Houston) defensive end Torrodney Prevot was virtually unblockable at the Dallas Nike Football Training Camp.
More than 700 players came to the Nike Football Training Camp in Dallas on Sunday. Of that enormous number, a few Texas commits and targets stood out in the competition.
Longhorns commit Jake Oliver along with target Maurice Smith joined Mike Mitchell who earned invitations to "The Opening" in July.
Defensive end Torrodney Prevot, another Texas target, earned MVP honors and showed why he is in high demand with his performance which included a showdown with Jake Raulerson.
Seven-year NFL defensive line veteran Chuck Wiley first saw Torrodney Prevot (Houston/Alief Taylor) on Sunday, he gave the 6-foot-4, 205-pounder the nickname "wide receiver" because of his not so defensive end-type frame.
But once he saw the uncommitted ESPNU Watch List member absolutely destroy the offensive line competition, he knew Prevot hadn't wondered over to his position group by accident. Prevot was indeed the best defensive linemen at the camp.
As for the competition with Raulerson, it might have been deemed a draw, but Prevot understands that the competition will propel his recruiting.
"Who won?" Raulerson yelled out loud.
A few people from the crowd yelled that he had won, but Prevot wasn't buying it.
"Offensive linemen always say that they won," he said. "I won. I definitely won."
Whoever won is up for debate, but there is no debating Prevot's place at the top of the defensive linemen's performance chart.
"A lot of people look at me as a nobody, I guess because I am so small," Prevot said. "I wanted to come out here and prove that I'm no joke."
He's definitely not that and proved as much after making a joke of some of his competition.
