Minkah Fitzpatrick Calvin Ridley

Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick and wide receiver Calvin Ridley served as guest coaches Saturday at Deion Sanders’ annual Prime21 camp in Dallas.

Fitzpatrick helped Sanders with coaching the defensive backs at the camp, while Ridley did the same with the wide receivers alongside former USC and 12-year NFL wideout Curtis Conway.

Sanders’ camp, outfitted by Under Armour, is for elite underclassmen from around the country. The camp’s purpose is to improve its participants on and off the field through “preparation, responsibility, intelligence, management and expectation, or P.R.I.M.E.”

Both Fitzpatrick and Ridley competed in the Under Armour All-America Game in 2015 and are widely considered among the best players at their positions in the nation for this upcoming season.

Fitzpatrick and Ridley were among the Crimson Tide’s three players during its SEC Media Days appearance Wednesday in Hoover, Alabama. Center Bradley Bozeman was the other, along with Alabama coach Nick Saban.

Texas safeties DeShon Elliott and Brandon Jones also were guest coaches at the camp.
