News and Recruiting Notes from the Under Armour Chicago Camp

Scout was on hand at the Under Armour Chicago to compile and track some of the hottest recruiting news and notes...

St. Louis (Mo.) Ritenour linebacker Ayodele Adeoye has not started to limit or narrow his focus at this point in the recruiting race, but did mention that he would like to take visits to schools like Oklahoma and Texas before he announces his cut-down list of colleges. He has an interestingly strong connection to UT as he pointed out that Longhorns defensive coordinator Todd Orlando coached his older brother Adewale Adeoye at Utah State. - Greg Powers

St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers College wide receiver Cameron Brown earned an invite to the iLLSPEED finals and was one of the camp's top performers. On the recruiting front, Brown has still not narrowed down his focus to a top list of schools and has not named any favorites, but has close to 20 offers on the table right now. He did mention a trip to Notre Dame being one of the top visits that he has been on, citing the tradition and atmosphere of the school. - Greg Powers

University of Detroit Jesuit running back Elijah Collins just visited Wisconsin for their spring game and said he had a good conversation with Badgers head coach Paul Chryst. The Badgers have a few things going for them there: he has a teammate in Scott Nelson headed there in the 2017 class and he likes the way they run the ball. Minnesota, Iowa and Michigan State are the other schools in his top four right now and there is a long way to go in this one still as he plans to take all of his official visits. - Allen Trieu

Chicago (Ill.) Brother Rice offensive lineman Nick Marozas is focusing more on school right now than recruiting, but there is a chance he makes a decision prior to summer camp season. However, if he is not committed by summer, he said he would look to camp at Iowa and with Penn State when they come to Northern Illinois for a camp. His last two visits were to Penn State, who has not offered him yet, and to Indiana, who has offered him. He spoke highly of his experience with the Hoosiers in Bloomington. - Allen Trieu

West Bloomfield (Mich.) wide receiver Taj Mustapha said he likes all the schools he has visited so far, but it is clear that his newest offer from Iowa will have an impact. That said, Syracuse was in early with him and he had a good visit there and Purdue has two former West Bloomfield Lakers doing well on their roster in Eddy Wilson and Navon Mosley, so this is one should be a contested battle. - Allen Trieu

Three-star Indianapolis (Ind.) Decatur Central wide receiver Tyrone Tracy was on hand and held himself well. He'll likely be positioned in the slot at the next level, and it may be with the Hawkeyes. Tracy will be making his college decision within the next week and is fresh off a visit to Iowa. - Derek Young

University of Detroit Jesuit offensive lineman Carlos Vettorello, who was the winner of the lineman skills challenge from the UA Camp on Saturday, has three schools standing out to him right now in Minnesota, Vanderbilt and Oregon, but only one of those schools has offered and are recruiting him the hardest, and that's Minnesota. Gophers head coach PJ Fleck built a relationship with Vettorello back in his time at Western Michigan, and things look promising here for the Golden Gophers. - Ryan Burns

St. Louis (Mo.) St. John Vianney athlete Kyren Williams picked up his second offer from the Wisconsin Badgers one day before the camp. It was his second offer and his second Big Ten Conference offer. Williams starred at the Badgers satellite camp last summer in Chicago, and that helped play a huge role in landing the offer. Nebraska offered him as a freshman and he can still recall the date of June 17 when reflecting on that offer, so look for the Huskers to be a strong contender for his signature. - Greg Powers

With Michigan State already set in the 2018 class with QB Theo Day, this past Sunday the Spartans had three key recruiting 2019 quarterbacks on display at the Under Armour sponsored event in Williamsport (Pa.) Loyalsock's Max Dugan, St. Louis (Mo.) De Smet's Nate Martens, and Oak Park (Mich.) High's Dwan Mathis. Showing his leadership already, Day spent his time at the event not only showing off his skills, but recruiting the man who could eventually succeed him as the signal caller of the green and white. Duggan, Mathis, and Martens all mentioned Day talking to them about the Spartans. - Hondo Carpenter
