MVP Camp: Five guys to watch

Not every guy won an award at the Atlanta MVP camp at Lassiter on Saturday, but here I profile a few guys who really stood out. Here are a few names to look for:

1) Reuben Unije, OL, John’s Creek, 2018. Reuben is a very talented OL prospect who came into the day as one of the top lineman in the camp. Listed at 6’5, 297, Unije already has the size college coaches are looking for. The 2018 prospect had a great day at the Mark Richt camp a week earlier, and had another good day on Saturday. He did struggle a little at times, but he has great size, long arms, and good hands. A couple of things he needs to improve on are technique and strength. Definitely a name to know for the 2018 class.

2) Dominick Blaylock, WR, Walton, 2019 This 2019 WR was fun to watch on Saturday. At 6’0, 164, Blaylock isn’t the biggest guy, but he sure knows how to get open. He looked very smooth running downfield, but showed great agility and quickness when he had the ball. There were routes where Blaylock had no trouble running right by a defender, and other routes where he would make four moves to get open. He can get open is so many different ways, and he makes it look easy when he does it. He has excellent hands also. There was only one catchable ball thrown his way that he wasn’t able to come up with. This will not be the last time you hear Dominick Blaylock’s name.

3) Jair Anderson, WR, Northview, 2016 Jair Anderson has a few offers, but his recruitment has still not reached its peak. This 2016 receiver can absolutely fly, and he proved it by running a 4.4 40 Saturday morning. Georgia might be Anderson’s biggest offer to date, but he had the type of speed that will earn him more offers shortly. At the camp he also did very well, catching the ball with ease, and torching defenders all afternoon. Anderson is a sleeper prospect who will make one school very happy in February of 2016.

4) Zach Williams, WR, John’s Creek, 2018 Williams was another guy who really stood out. Listed at 6’3, 194 lbs., Williams is a very raw athlete with tons of talent. He showed his athleticism towards the end of the camp when he made an incredible one handed catch on the sideline. He has good size, but needs to get faster. He showed good hands, and found a way to get open on a consistent basis. This is a prospect to really look out for in the 2018 class.

5) Tyler Reed, LB, Cartersville, 2016 I’ve seen Tyler play a few times in the past couple months, and he is a prospect I like more and more every time I see him. Listed at 6’2, 237 lbs., Reed is well built, and plays with a mean streak. He is not the fastest guy, but he looked pretty quick for a guy his size. He covered well, got through the drills with ease, and showed a knack for the football. He currently does not hold any offers, but he is a 2016 linebacker who has some promise.
