MVP Camp Top Performers

Sunday's MVP camp at Lovejoy High School featured some of the top prospects in the south for every classification. Here are some of the standout performers of the day

Jeremiah Holloman, WR, Newton (GA)

I first saw Holloman play last spring at the Adidas Showcase where he had no offers.  The 2017 receiver definitely looked the part even back then, and showed exceptional body control and hands.  Holloman came to Athens for the Mark Richt 7 on 7 camp back last summer and really stood out. He got open consistently and showed he was a vertical threat throughout the tournament.  Even after a strong performance at Rising Seniors last December, there were still teams who were not recruiting the one time Michigan commit.  His recruitment has picked up tremendously the last couple of months, but an MVP performance yesterday has really put him on notice.  Kirby Smart noticed as well, and offered Holloman a scholarship last night.  The 6-foot-3 188-pound reciever is built well with muscle, and can over power a defender to make the tough catch.  Holloman was not the fastest receiver out there, but the track star did show explosiveness and ran some very good routes throughout the day.  From one handed catches, to catching the ball over the defender, Holloman really stood out among the rest, and made it look easy.  Look for him to make a jump in the latest rankings.

Trevor Lawrence, QB, Cartersville (GA)

Arguably the nation's top quarterback regardless of class put on another show on Sunday.  When Lawrence wasn't being hounded by reporters, he threw the ball very well, and showed that he really does have all the tools.  He has great size at 6-foot-6 196 pounds, great footwork, accuracy, and presence in the pocket.  He is very well coached, he understand the game, and has that "it" factor that teams look for when putting together a championship team.  He's a leader, he works hard, and he's an extremely confident yet humble young man.  He's a program-changing quarterback in every aspect.  Tennessee, Clemson, and Georgia are his top three with a visit to Florida coming in early April.

Tadarian Moultry, LB, Jackson Olin (AL)

Tadarian "TD" Moultry is a guy that immidiately stood out at MVP camp.  The 6-foot-2 219-pound linebacker is all muscle, and the top ranked outside linebacker in the state of Alabama.  Although he does run well, Moultry is better suited as a run stopping thumper.  With offers from Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss and Clemson, Moultry's recruitment has really picked up recently.  After speaking with him briefly, Georgia is team he really wants an offer from.  Look for him to visit Athens soon.

Jaquan Henderson, LB, Newton (GA):

Another Newton product I've seen multiple times is Jaquan Henderson.  The former Kentucky and UCLA commit is a versatile linebacker who can really run.  Henderson might be slightly undersized at 6-foot-1 193-pounds, but he tackles well, runs extremely well, and makes plays all over the field.  There is a chance Henderson could play safety at the next level also.  During camp Henderson was able to cover some quick backs downfield in coverage and showed great technique in the process.  Good tackler, good ball skills.  Henderson has admitted that he has not heard from the Georgia staff yet, but he is hoping to hear from them soon.

Malik Route, WR, Lovejoy (GA): 

Possibly the smallest prospect in attendance, the 5-foot-6 148-pound Lovejoy star showed incredible explosiveness and agility during the showcase session.  Route was breaking ankles left and right and got separation from the defender with ease.  Of course there is no pressure on the QB, so Route was able to put a few moves on his defenders so create easy separation.  He showed he can stop on a dime and change direction, and showed good hands as well.  Route's size might hurt him a little in his recruitment, but he has the potential to be a dangerous weapon in the slot or in the return game at the next level.  Very impressive day for the agile Route.  Expect more interest and offers to come his way shortly.
