Toledo 7v7: Defensive Standouts

Over 30 teams were in Toledo Monday for 7on7 action, with teams representing Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. Who were the defensive standouts? Scout was on-hand for all the action.

Tyvel Jemison: Probably the overall MVP, and the Fort Wayne Bishop Luers defensive back had several picks, including three returned for scores. Can play either safety or cornerback at the next level. Picked up his first offer, from Toledo, following the action. Hearing from Purdue and Indiana.

Jaylon Smith: The Notre Dame commit was as impressive as usual, and this is a kid you run out of great things to say about his talent. The size, speed and hip recovery stands out, and Smith has everything needed to be a star at the next level. He spent a lot of time encouraging his younger teammates, and his leadership is apparent.

Joseph Henderson: A 2014 prospect out of Shaker Heights (OH), and a freak athlete at 6-foot-4, 215-pounds. Could play either linebacker or defensive end at the next level, with his size and speed combination. Offered by Michigan Tuesday at the Wolverine camp.

Jerome Lane: Played safety and covered a ton of ground, and also grabbed several interceptions. Must prove he is a football player this fall, but there is no doubting his athletic gifts. Holds a Washington offer.

Derrick Burgess: The Shaker Heights athlete is as athletically gifted as any 2013 prospect in Ohio. Played safety and wide receiver, and impressed at both spots with his 6-foot-3 reach and quick feet. Missed his junior season due to injury and is just getting his name out there.

James Howard: Out of Chandler Park Academy in Michigan. Impressed at cornerback, and was solid in man-to-man coverage. No offers to date, but the MAC schools are aware of his talent. Nice size at 5-foot-11, 170-pounds.

Andre Turner: Another Chandler Park product that showed well. Turner had quick feet for a 6-foot-4, 220-pound, athlete and dropped well into coverage. Also, impressed as a tight end. Holds four MAC offers.

Noah Furbush: A 2014 linebacker prospect out of Kenton, Ohio. Furbush was all over the field, showing speed and also leaping ability. His man-to-man coverage was excellent and he also got great depth in his drops. One to watch this year at one of Ohio's fine programs.
