OFFENSIVE TOP 12:
- Jaelen Gill, RB - Westerville (Ohio) South
The Ohio State commit was very quick, fluid, and created a lot of separation in running routes. He also caught the ball extremely well. He was one of the winners of IllSpeed, a competition which further showed his athletic gifts.
- Devontae Dobbs, OL - Belleville (Mich.)
Dobbs earned an invite to the Future 50 camp with his performance. He was rarely beaten on the day and went against the best at the camp. He has excellent feet and while he still has things to work on, he is ahead of the curve for a sophomore. He is a top-level, national prospect.
- Darian Kinnard, OT - Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius
We continue to be impressed by this big man. He has good footwork and a strong base. He has been excellent in the two camps that we have seen him at. He was recently offered by Penn State and it would be hard to believe that more will not come his way.
- Ja'von Hicks, WR - Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain
Hicks used his size to make a lot of plays on the day. Not only does he have size, but his ability to track and adjust to the football is exceptional and he made some very tough catches in tight coverage. He is committed to his hometown Cincinnati Bearcats and we think they are getting a very good one.
- Terez Traynor, WR, Louisville (Ky.) Doss
Traynor is another nice-sized receiver who went up and over defensive backs some. He has a big catch radius because of his long arms and also leaping ability. He is a great athlete. He is a tad on the raw side, but he was one of the most consistent playmakers on this day.
- Johnny Adams, RB - Indianapolis (Ind.) Ben Davis
One of the more explosive guys in attendance, Adams has
- Davion Johnson, WR - Bedford (Ohio)
Lightning-fast slot type. He is not
- Dylan Drummond, WR - Cuyahoga Heights (Ohio)
A bit of a
- Anthony Torres, TE - Mishawaka (Ind.) Penn
This massive tight end is always one of the best looking guys on the
A four-star Cincinnati
- Michael Drennen, RB - Dublin (Ohio) Dublin-Coffman
Only a 2020 prospect, Drennen is a jitterbug with quick feet and sudden change of direction. He looked like he could be a college slot or tailback. He holds a couple Power 5 offers including Kentucky and Indiana.
- William McDaniel, WR - Trotwood (Ohio) Trotwood-Madison
It seemed like every time we looked up, this guy was making a play. He is a very good route runner whose quickness allows him to separate and we caught the ball very well for the second straight showcase we have seen him at.
OTHER TOP OFFENSIVE PERFORMERS
- At quarterback, there were two rising seniors in Tadas Tatarunas and John Foreback who had solid days. Both are awaiting FBS offers, but hold offers from other programs. In the 2019 class, Detroit King's Dequan Finn had a very nice day throwing the ball. Ohio counterpart Michael Lowery had a good day as well for the second straight camp. Class of 2020 prospect Riley Keller had a good outing as well. He was accurate and consistent. He holds a couple early offers.
- The class of 2019 receivers showed their talent at the camp. Detroit Cass Tech's Kyron McKinnie-Harper recently received his first offer from Syracuse, and he validated their offer with a really strong performance here.
- There was a very good group of tight ends. Kentucky
- On the offensive line, the final five, in addition to Dobbs was Aaron Ervin, Trey Livingood, Alexander Howie and Will Bramel, all class of 2018 prospects. Those guys each had good days during the 1-1s to earn that honor. In the 2019 class, Zeke Correll showed he has a couple of early offers. He is always a tough competitor. Charles Turner, another 2019 from Ohio has a lot of upside with his frame and athleticism. One surprise on the day was Fairfield's Jacob Hensley, a 2019 center who battled hard and won a lot of 1-1s. Yet another 2019 with major offers was Bryan Hudson who came up from Kentucky and had a good showing. For the second straight
DEFENSIVE TOP 12
- Tyreke Smith, DE - Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius
Smith, who has major offers from around the country, continues to show he is an elite prospect. He is big, athletic, and while he did not win every rep, we liked how he responded to the ones he did not win. He competes hard and has a very high ceiling. He earned an invite to the Under Armour All-America Game.
- Steven Faucheux, DE - West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West
Faucheux earned a Future 50 invite with his performance. He is a great sized kid. He played some end and can project there in some systems and tackle in others. He is definitely a high-major prospect either way though.
Briggs is a bulldog. He is very strong, has
- Zach Slade, DE - Olentangy (Ohio)
In a good group of defensive linemen, the Slade twins both made the final five. Zach showed the ability to play inside and out.
- Jacob Slade, DE - Olentangy (Ohio)
Like his brother, Jacob competed hard, moved around the line, and not only took a lot of
- Xavier Goldsmith, CB - Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech
A 2019 prospect, Goldsmith showed excellent anticipation and instincts in jumping a couple routes quickly and virtually running the route for the receiver. He also competed with bigger receivers deep and knocked away a couple of those passes, drawing praise from camp coaches.
- Reese Taylor, CB - Indianapolis (Ind.) Ben Davis
A high school quarterback recruited as an athlete, we were not certain how Taylor would do at cornerback, but his natural explosion and athleticism allowed him to perform at a high level. He also has good ball skills and had a couple picks.
- Reggie Pearson, S - River Rouge (Mich.)
- Davion Williams, CB - Belleville (Mich.)
Williams has been adding offers quickly lately and he showed why at this camp. His athleticism and length
- Xavier Peters, LB - West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West
One of the top linebackers in the country, Peters was recovering from a foot injury, but his ability to run with running backs was surprising considering that. He showed well in coverage, an aspect of his game we did no see on film a lot.
- J.J. Weaver, DE - Louisville (Ky.) Moore
Weaver is a physical specimen. A 6-foot-6 defensive end recruit, he actually played linebacker at camp and surprised with his ability to cover.
Similar to Weaver, Knight-Goff, another 2019 prospect, has some interest as an edge rusher but he might be recruited more as a linebacker now. He was very good in space and coverage/
OTHER TOP DEFENSIVE PERFORMERS
- On the defensive line, Tate Goodyear had an excellent day. He was part of the final five. If he does what he did on Saturday in June at college camps, he should get more offers. West Virginia commit Tyrese Allen has a lot of natural ability. He has some technical work to polish up, but he is quick and strong. Elijah Ratliff admitted it was not his best day, but we still really like his skill set. He is quick off the ball and has a great motor. Zaid Hamdan is not the biggest guy, but tough to contend with in 1-1s. One of the top 2019 guys was Noah Potter, who won several reps cleanly with quick, inside moves. A 2019 prospect who had a good day winning with his quickness was Jeremiah Burton.
- At linebacker, Josh Chandler made several plays in coverage including a one-handed interception. Cincinnati
- In the secondary, we thought
