A Syracuse commit and multiple targets were among the surprises at the Under Armour camp in New Jersey

MONTVALE, N.J. -- Scout takes a look at the top surprises from the Under Armour camp at St. Joseph Regional.


Safety Kevin Brennan made a mark as a finalist in the iLLSPEED agility competition, but the Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco standout also did a nice job in the 1-on-1 portion. He was physical and showed an ability to get out of his breaks quickly. He tracked the ball well and showed good athleticism. He made a recent trip to Rutgers and Navy, where his brother goes to school, is a big player. Boston CollegeArmy and Connecticut also offered.


Medina (N.Y.) High receiver Jalin Cooper used his size well and he was strong with his hands. He knew how to shield defenders and he tracked the ball well. He ran a 4.77 in the 40-yard dash at another event in April, but he moved faster than that in the Under Armour event. Once he adds weight and strength, he should be a good college receiver. He made recent visits to Rutgers and Boston College and is also being recruited by SyracuseWake ForestWashington State and Connecticut.


Blairstown (N.J.) Blair Academy defensive end Jayson Oweh was named the topcompetitor in the trenches and his offer list includes Ohio StatePenn StateNotre Dame and Wisconsin. He was already well known in the recruiting world with approximately two dozen offers, but he makes the list because this was the first time seeing him as a defensive end. His previous camp performance was as a tight end, but it is clear his best spot is on defense. He fired off the ball well, had the athleticism to dip his shoulder and get around the edge and he was surprising active with his hands. He has one year of football experience, so look out in another two years.


Vineland (N.J.) High running back prospect Isaih Pacheco wanted to show his versatility, so he worked out as a receiver. It turned out to be a good move because he showcased his route-running ability and his hands. He was strong getting off of the line of scrimmage, and he came out of his breaks well. He is being recruited by Rutgers, Maryland, Syracuse, Boston College and Pittsburgh.


Trill Williams, an athlete from White Plains (N.Y.) Archbishop Stepinac makes the list for two reasons. First, watching the Syracuse commit move around fast and with agility less than a year after having surgery to repair a torn ACL was not expected. Second, the defensive back was quick and he got into and out of breaks well, and he his acceleration was top notch.
