Atlanta NFTC: Offensive Preview

The next stop for the Nike Football Training Camp is Atlanta, Ga. and many elite athletes will be there competing Sunday. He is a preview of the offense...

Around 200 prospects are expected to be at Lassiter High School Sunday to compete at the Atlanta Nike Football Training Camp.


Some of the top quarterbacks in the southeast are expected to be at the Atlanta NFTC and headlining that group is four-star signal caller Lorenzo Nunez and North Carolina commitment Anthony Ratliff.

Both are top quarterbacks with Queen and Nunez being out of Georgia and Ratliff out of North Carolina. All three can hurt defenses with their arm and legs.

Others to keep an eye on at this position are Tajhea Chambers, Austin King, D.J. Pearson, and Gabe Tiller. Chambers and Pearson are very good athletes who can run and throw while King and Tiller are more pure passers.

Rex Culpepper and Josh White are 2016 quarterbacks to keep an eye on as well. White has already been offered by Mississippi State and he has hardly played any varsity level football. Culpepper plays at Tampa (Fla.) Plant, a school that has produced some top quarterbacks over the last decade.

Running Back

Scout 100 running back Taj Griffin leads the way at running back. The speedster out of Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern has offers from schools coast to coast and he should shine in this setting.

This position should be strong and Eric Swinney is another four-star back to watch. He has over 20 offers with schools like Auburn, Georgia, and Ole Miss among others in pursuit. Louisville commitment Justin Crawford, Ruben Garnett, Jonathan Hawkins, Mikell Lands-Davis, and Mississippi State commit Kentavious Thomas are expected as well.

Juniors Justin Curry will make the trip from Arkansas and he is one to watch. Kalin Heath and Jaleen Thomas have not gotten a lot of publicity, but both are Division 1 backs.

2016 prospect Malik Staples in an underclassman that many will be talking about in the coming years.

Wide Receiver/Tight End

Wide receiver looks to be the best position at this camp based on the names that appear on the early registration.

Preston Williams is the top wide receiver in the country on Scout and the star out of Lovejoy, Ga. will be there Sunday. He is an early Tennessee commit, but has recently visited schools like Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and Georgia.

Another five-star athlete will be there are well and that is Terry Godwin, a Georgia commit. He could be a star on either side of the ball on the next level, but he plans to work out at wideout at this event.

Plenty of other top receivers will be in attendance. Some of those are Shadell Bell (Clemson commit), Keyston Fuller, Harland Howell, C.J. Sanders, Darius Slayton, and Jayson Stanley.

Jackson Harris is a four-star tight end out of Tennessee and he is expected. He has over 30 scholarship offers. Daniel Imatorbhebhe is a hybrid that is being recruited as a tight end and wide receiver.

A could of underclassmen to know about are Demetris Robertson and Charlie Woerner. Both have been offered by in-state school Georgia and Robertson is a wideout with over 10 offers now.

Offensive Line

The top two offensive linemen in the Peach State are expected and the two definitely headline this position. Five-star Mitch Hyatt, the No. 3 overall prospect in the country has already committed Clemson. Chuma Edoga has a long list of offers and he is still being courted by schools coast to coast. Both are elite left tackle prospects.

Venzell Boulware is a lineman that has been hot over the past month and he is being recruited primarily as a tackle, but could be a combo guy. Zach Stewart could play tackle or guard on the next level and he is already committed to Tennessee. Scout projects him as a tackle. Florida State commit Cole Minshew is another versatile offensive lineman Scout looks forward to seeing at this camp.

Some top interior offensive linemen expected are Will Bryan (Georgia Tech commit), Nikita Fair, Mike Horton, Tony Taylor, Dallas Warmack (Alabama commit), and Nick Wilson.

Chandler Tuitt is a 2016 offensive tackle with a lot of upside and he has already been offered by Ole Miss and North Carolina.
