One of the best things about off-season camps is the opportunity to see the young players step up and make a name for themselves.
Several underclassmen at the Under Armour AA Camp already boasted multiple offers but we did see a handful of talented kids who are flying well below the radar and aren’t getting a ton of buzz.
As we always mention, this isn't a top prospect list, it's simply a list of the 10-15 players who had the best day in our eyes. This has nothing to do with recruiting rankings but strictly based on performance.
*All players listed are from the class of ’19 unless noted.
The Top 10
Akili Arnold, DB, Mission Viejo (Calif.)
Might have led the camp in interceptions, great feel and instincts in the secondary.
Jamaal Bell, RB, Lancaster (Calif.) Paraclete
Has it all, balance, change of direction and game breaking top end speed.
Jeremiah Criddell, DB, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.)
Physical corner with a safety frame but had an excellent day locking kids up.
J.T. Daniels, QB, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei
The game always looks easy for him, polished and mature pocket passer.
Kyle Ford, WR, Anaheim (Calif.) Servite
Man-child, has a college body right now and can make plays down the field.
Isaiah Foskey, TE, Concord (Calif.) De La Salle
Athletic pass catching TE with good hands and downfield speed.
Jaden Navarrette, WR, Corona (Calif.) Centennial ’20
Love his upside on defense but he has been exceptional at WR this off-season.
Chris Steele, DB, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
Long, physical 6-1 corner and flashed plus speed and ball awareness.
D.J. Uiagalelei, QB, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco ’20
Arguably most consisted QB in the event, tight release and ball explodes out of his hand.
Max Williams, DB, Gardena (Calif.) Serra
Is always among the top cover corners in every event and this was no exception.
Five More That Just Missed The Cut
Hank Bachmeier, QB, Murrieta Valley (Calif.)
Very polished, effortless delivery, accurate down the field.
Jay Butterfield, QB, Brentwood (Calif.) Liberty ’20
Long, skinny freshman has a ton of upside once he fills out, a natural thrower.
Reece Hite, DL, Mission Viejo (Calif.)
One of the top rush ends in the camp, very good getting around the edge.
Charles Mincy, RB, Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey
Explosive athlete, quick twitch kid with no wasted motion, gets downhill in a hurry.
Enokk Vimahi, OL, Kahuku (Hawaii)
Athletic lineman that will be scary with two more years of development.
