Passing Down Jr Best of the West Future Stars

Passing Down concluded its Junior High Elite 7-on-7 circuit last weekend with its Jr Best of the West championship tournament.  Teams from Northern, Central and Southern California competed and here are some of the future stars that caught our eye…

Fernando Chairez (Class of 2020)

The MVP of last weekend’s tournament played both sides of the ball.  The 5-foot-9, 175-pound athlete will play his frosh ball at Bishop Amat.  He can also play slot and free safety on defense.  He scored 15 touchdowns as an 8th grader.  Next year his 7-on-7 career will continue with Team TNT.

DJ Adams (Class of 2020)

The future Bakersfield (Calif.) Foothill baller didn’t play as an 8th grader because of a face fracture and eye injury.  His 5-foot-8, 164-pound frame is ideal to play safety at the next level.  He also plays running back.

Jameson Silva (Class of 2020)

This tall, lean passer will likely play junior varsity at Fresno (Calif.) Central East.  The 6-foot, 140-pound quarterback has the tools and height to grow into a solid prospect.

Jeremiah Hunter (Class of 2020)

The Northern California Regional MVP shined once again last weekend.  Hunter has the size and speed to be an elite defensive back or wide receiver in high school.  He will play at Central East as well.

Jared Greenfield (Class of 2020)

The 5-foot-10, 140-pound defensive back/slot receiver stood out as an elite level talent.  He played quarterback in middle school, but he will compete for a varsity spot in the defensive backfield at Crenshaw High School.  He is one to watch in the next few years.

Dorian Green (Class of 2020) 

The Southern California Regional MVP had another stellar tournament performance.  He will play at Mater Dei next season.  He can play both sides of the ball but showed best locking down opposing wideouts.

Dominic Tatum (Class of 2020)

The 6-foot, 145-pound wideout was on his way to a MVP performance before Elite Athletes fell short in the championship game.  Tatum is a tall, rangy target.  He had just over 20 receptions last year in 8th grade with a score coming on every fourth catch.  He may play JV next year at Bishop Alemany.

Trilian Harris (Class of 2021) 

This 6-foot-2, 165-pound quarterback will repeat 8th grade at Bankhead Sports Academy.  He already has the size, arm and touch to play at the next level, however, he will have another year to increase his already impressive size.  He will likely play at Bishop Amat in 2017.

Damien Moore (Class of 2020)

He played wide receiver and running back in middle school and will play running back and safety next year at Bishop Amat.  The 5-foot-7, 165-pound athlete should dominate at the frosh level.
