National Underclassmen - Combines & Camps
The only combine that evaluates you based on your grade and your position.

Grade Classification for Competition
Youth 2nd to 6th, 7th/8th Graders and current 9th, 10th, 11th & Graders

NUC is the longest running underclassmen event, and it's the most respected high school combine and football camp in the country. If you're serious about taking your game to the next level, playing college football and getting early exposure to colleges and recruiters, then attend the National Underclassmen Combine, where those who want to be the best go up against the best. 

The combine is for skill players running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, defensive backs, and linebackers. The combine is for both defensive and offensive lineman where they have their own testing and competition. Finally, quarterbacks will combine test and then go through specific drills and one on one passing that will rate them as a quarterback. 

The athletes go through testing in 40 yard dash, shuttle run, vertical jump, broad jump and bench press, then they have specific position skill evaluation in their specific positions for a full 30 minutes and then a full 30 minutes of one on ones, followed by the 10 minute showcase where the best will go against the best. 

MVP awards are giving out for each position at each grade level. We also give out awards for fastest man, leadership, strongest man, and combine king. The biggest award at each combine is the Overall MVP which is for the best player in their grade in each camp.

One of the unique things of the NUC combines is that the athletes only compete against athletes in their grade. For example 9th graders against 9th graders, 10th against 10th and 11th against 11th. Only in smaller camps can two grades be combined, but all athletes are evaluated based on their grade at all times.
