2019 Hottest Of Da Hot Middle School Prospects In The Nation Vol. 1

Name :Ryan Mack
Measurables: 5’9”-165 lbs
Position : ATH/DB
Team : Miami Gardens Ravens (FL)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
There’s a saying “It’s just in you’re blood” which is phrase used when you're describing Ryan Mack. The consignment professional reminds me of Ed Reed the way he roams the secondary. You can tell he is a Coaches son from how technically & Fundamentally sound his game is. Mack has the potential to be an elite pass defender if asked to press or play in short zones, he is at his best from the safety position helping over the top that’s where his instincts kick in. He contests balls very well, and should be a great asset in the red zone, length, strength and leaping ability.
Against the run, Mack is pretty much perfect. He defeats blockers and takes out running backs with ease. This kid Ryan Mack is one heck of an athlete and is skilled enough to play multiple positions so look for his game to expand even more on the next level.


Name : DeJuan “Dink” Riggs
Measurables: 5’10”-164 lbs
Position : ATH
Team : Maryland Heat (MD)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Mr. Jack of all trades Maryland Heat's very own DeJuan Riggs Aka “Dink” . This kid is a highlight reel waiting to happen doesn’t matter where you put him on the field he just makes plays. Riggs has the ability to be a physical man-to-man cover cornerback. He's naturally instinctive and has a great feel for the game, which is on display when he jumps routes for the multiple pick 6’s he had this season. This talented youngster is a playmaker who makes things happen when he is on the field.
A kid with Rigg’s unique skill-set is equally as dangerous on the offensive side of the ball. At either Receiver or Running-Back once the ball enters Riggs hands there aren’t many who can turn and run like he can with the smoothness that he shows. His ability to accelerate is second to none “So it’s good luck trying to catch him”. His top-end speed is one of his best assets. Rigg's has explosive vertical skills, that make him a big asset in the red zone. Rigg’s also shows a good feel for the game and makes plays independent of his physical tools. As a returner, Rigg’s shows good vision and change of direction. He knows when to gas it, and when to throttle down and pick his way through traffic. When were talking top Prospects in his class Rigg’s is the crème of the crop.


Name : Elijah Lofton
Measurables: 6’1”-190 lbs
Position : WR
Team : Vegas Strong (NV)
Class : 2024

Skinny:

After watching Elijah Lofton performances in some of the biggest games of the year, when I think of top Receivers in his class this kid is at top of the list. Blessed with great hand-eye coordination, Lofton is able to track the ball exceptionally well on passes to all quadrants of the field. His vision allows him to almost always pick-up the ball early in flight. He's able to fully extend his arms away from his frame most times in which he is targeted, therefore, expanding his catch radius, making it bigger than usual for a player of his height.
Lofton has elite level ball skills -- some of the best of any prospect this cycle. He is excellent at contorting his body in mid-air to make circus catches. Not only he is an explosive leaper, but he times his jumps well. Combining that, along with his strong hands and high point skills, he's nearly unstoppable on contested throws. Already standing 6’1”-190 pounds his frame is High School ready so don’t be surprised if this kid makes a instant impact on the NexXt level.


Name : Unterrio Latin-Henley
Measurables: 5’10”-170 lbs
Position : RB
Team : Heir Academy (WA)
Class : 2024

Skinny:
Some players film don’t do them justice you have to see them live in action to fully appreciate how talented they are, Unterrio Latin-Henley is one of those prospects. Henley is a back who carries nice size and runs downhill. He is an efficient mover that doesn't waste a ton of lateral motion. He's not what you would classify as a cutback runner, preferring to stay play-side on the majority of his runs. But, he will press the h*** and bounce outside in order to gain the edge.

Although he needs a bit of space, Henley can create yards on his own once he gets to second level. He plays with good balance and body control. This attribute shows up in his ability to stick his foot in the ground and redirect. He doesn't need to gather his frame, nor does he telegraph cuts by taking "baby steps" prior to changing direction. He demonstrates nice burst out of his cuts as well. Henley has good long-speed, He simply has enough to out-sprint defenders to the end zone on a consistent basis. He consistently will register those 10-15 yard runs and create those big runs due to his burst through the h*** and creativity once he gets out into space. If Haley stays on track look for him to be a household name in 4 years.

Name : Cincere Rhaney
Measurables: 5’10”-193 Lbs
Position : RB/ATH
Team : OG Ducks (CA)
Class : 2024

Skinny:
If you follow Youth Football the name Cincere Rhaney holds weight. Let me elaborate, Rhaney has long been considered one of the top players in his class since his Rac Pac Carson Colt days. Rhaney is patient. He waits to find a h*** or changes directions to find open space. He appears to have solid vision when he’s carrying the ball and moves effectively through defenses. Rhaney runs well both inside and outside the tackles, and he is able to break loose from defenders. Rhaney is strong and powerful player who can gain speed as he moves down the field. In Rhaney’s OG Duck footage, had a huge year against the toughest schedule in the country. Just call him the Touchdown machine there wasn’t a team that could withstand this Phenom’s physical running style coupled with the edge this kid played with he was no doubt an unstoppable force.


Name : Tomir Bransford
Measurables: 5’11”-180 Lbs
Position : RB
Team : Maryland Seahawks (MD)
Class : 2025


Skinny:
The Maryland Seahawks under Coach Jarvis Thomas have been considered a National Power for the past 6 or 7 years with their unorthodox single wing offense they've been known for. Coach Jarvis has produced multiple Division 1 prospects, but I'm going out on a limb and say Tomir Bransford is no doubt thee best Running-back that has ever played for the Seahawks which speaks volumes on this kids talent. Bransford --he's not just a downhill, between-the-tackles runner. As a result, arm tackle attempts are not nearly enough at the youth level to bring down Bransford, in part because he does a good job in traffic of getting low and behind his pads to present the smallest possible tackling surface, a key trait to possess for a tall running back. Whether low of high, it's extremely difficult to bring him down, a big part of the reason why he scored multiple touchdowns roughly every game.
Bransford is also a decisive back because of his vision which allows him to work almost entirely north and south as a runner. He has a nasty jump cutter in his arsenal, he also sometimes choose instead to slide cut or make often subtle changes of direction to find the open field, at which point he can pull away from defenders because of his strong top-end speed. When comparing prospect for the Class of 2025 it’s hard not label this kid one of the best in the Nation after all he proved it 2019


Name : Ryan Wingo
Measurables: 6’1”-165 lbs
Position : WR
Team : East St. Louis Flyers (IL)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Speaking of the eye test Ryan Wingo completely aces that but is far more than that when you watch his game. It's a play Wingo made at YNC where he breaks open on a nine route, the quarterback heaves the ball down field, and a teammate on the sideline immediately holds his hands in the air to signal a touchdown. And Wingo hauls in the pass for a touchdown, naturally. The Flyers operates a run-first offense out of a base single back pistol set, with only two wide receivers or three. So, when they throw the ball deep, they throw it to Wingo, who is often running past overmatched cornerbacks and safeties headed towards the box to stop the running game.
Because of that size and leaping ability, Wingo has a larger margin for error with his route running than smaller prospects who can't elevate as well as he does. Blessed with high school frame and room to grow Wingo should no doubt take off on the NexXt Level keep your eyes peeled on this X-Factor.

Name : Amontez Woolfolk
Measurables: 5’11”-140 Lbs
Position : ATH
Team : TMD Jaguars (KY)
Class : 2025


Skinny:
2019 was the year the state of Kentucky served notice to the Youth Football world that they aren’t just a Basketball state. Case in point the TMD Jaguars who took their show on the road competing versus the top teams in the country. In the midst of it all revealed the State has some pretty elite talent Amontez Woolfolk leads the pack as a dynamic playmaker. Woolfolk operates as an option QB for his TMD Jaguars, as is common for many youth football players to do with the best athlete on the field to ensure that he touches the ball on every play. Excellent quickness and agility are immediately evident. I am most certain Woolfolk possess that top-end speed, that he doesn’t hesitate to flex when pulling away from defenders.
Woolfolk clearly benefits from hard work and a high Football IQ which makes him far more advanced than many cornerbacks or receivers his age. I say cornerback or receiver, because he is clearly not a quarterback on the High School level, and has the ability to play corner, though he could also play receiver. Woolfolk is blessed to be gifted enough to make plays at multiple positions, which is why when it’s time to transition to the next level he can do it with ease.

Name : Taevion “Chik” Swint
Measurables: 5’9”-158 Lbs
Position : ATH
Team : Osceola Panthers (FL)
Class : 2025


Skinny:
Some are born with it and some born without it, and that is good genes. I’ve had the pleasure of covering one of this prospect older brother who was a beast, seems like baby brother Taevion “Chik” Swint is following in his footsteps. Swint has that elite game breaking speed, with a unique blend of power & size. With that said, he also has ridiculous quickness, balance, agility and vision. And that combination makes him incredibly difficult to tackle. That's important, because if defenders get an arm on him, he also has a mean stiff arm that makes him difficult to bring down.
Swint is more effective between the tackles than I figured he would be, and that's because of his vision. He has the ability to find holes and use his quickness to quickly get through them. Oh, after speaking with Swint’s Coach kid knows his future is most likely at receiver, which is a plus considering he also catches the ball very well and should be used in the return game as well, particularly on punts. Swint is a dynamic playmaker who is definitely in the conversation for the top player in the Class of 2025.

Name : Rickey Evans
Measurables: 5’8”-155
Position : WR
Team : SE Dallas Wolverines (TX)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Whenever a player is able to reach the endzone on the number 1# ranked Miami Gardens Ravens something has to be said about that, Rickey Evans did that and also made a couple more plays. Spread teams covet a receiver who can consistently get open on option routes, like Cole Beasley did for Josh Allen. Evans fits the bill. He's still growing so he isn’t the biggest, but he uses that to his advantage. His ability to quickly change direction is way too much for even the best coverage linebackers to handle. Almost all Texas High Schools are spread teams.
Evans has excellent quickness, with a nice blend of great speed. His catch radius isn’t the biggest and he wins his share of physical battles for the ball. Still, he should have a place in any spread offense, and could be an asset in moving the chains. He does do a good job of catching balls thrown to him. When you can perform on the big stage versus the top competition you can bet your bottom dollar things will only trend upward for this kid.


Name : Ajon Bryant
Measurables: 5’6”-155 Lbs
Position : ATH
Team : OG Ducks (CA)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
From 2018 to 2019 there hasn’t been a much more exciting player to watch than Ajon Bryant this spark plug of speed & quickness has been a walking highlight machine. Bryant is an explosive threat on draws or in the screen game and on other space plays. His explosiveness makes him a home run threat every time he touches the ball. In High School, he probably projects best as a change of pace running- back or slot receiver to take advantage of that ability in space. With his strong lower body and low center of gravity, the OG Ducks product is difficult to bring down for tacklers who try to hit him high.
Thanks to the Ducks Coaching staff Bryant put in plenty work at the slot position making tons of big plays showing he can make the tough catches. The thing that might surprise some but not me is Bryant jumps out the gym which shouldn’t be a surprise considering how explosive he is. The spark plug to the Bugatti fast OG Ducks offense should make a splash on the NexXt level with the things he has going for him athletically.

Name : Omillio Agard
Measurables: 5’10”-150 Lbs
Position : DB
Team : Maryland Heat (MD)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Omillio Agard has been nothing short of elite since I've had the pleasure of covering him which spans back from 2018 when he was putting in work with the Lawncrest Lions. 2019 Agard joined the National power the Maryland Heat ever since then it has been this talented prospect coming out party. Agard has a strong-looking frame and great length for his size. At this stage in his development he is comfortable lining up in zone or press-man. That said, he doesn't often get his hands on the receiver, but when he does, he shows the ability to muscle his opponent but working on his jamming technique can maximize his effectiveness in press-man situations.
In coverage, Agard displays good reactive quickness. He has the ability to not only re-direct in space but can click and close. He flashes the necessary traits to function well within zone concepts considering driving on the ball is indeed one of his primary strengths. Agard works extremely hard on his craft so it wouldn’t be a shock if he is instant impact freshman on the High School level.


Name : Elliott “E.J” Colson
Measurables: 5’10”-170 Lbs
Position : ATH
Team : Rarebreed Apes (GA)
Class : 2025


Skinny:
Elliott “E.J” Colson established himself as arguably the top prospect in the Class of 2025 in 2019 leading his Rarebreed Apes team to the mythical Youth National Championship, and did versus the toughest 12u schedule in the country. E.J, at five foot eleven and 170 pounds, is a do-it-all athlete who can play both sides of the ball as well as return kicks. On his UTR spotlight, every time he touches the ball good things seem to happen like frequent trips to the endzone. E.J lines up as a receiver often out wide, or he is at Quarterback executing the zone read ripping off huge gains. E.J has great speed, good hands, and an awareness of where he needs to be to get extra yards.
E.J is one of the players who is invaluable to his team and subsequently High School coaches because he can do a little bit of everything. E.J is also a disciplined defender with good vision. He stays with and shows opposing a bit of maturity in coverage that is beyond his Youth Football years. I myself love seeing him on the defensive side of the ball this kid is the punisher from his Free Safety position taking away an entire side of the field. This young man is oozing with talent with the potential to be playing on Saturdays 5 years from now. With what E.J did in 2019 you wouldn’t want to miss what he'll be doing 2020 for an encore.

Name : Kyngstonn Viliamu-Asa
Measurables: 6’1”-183 Lbs
Position : LB
Team : OG Ducks (CA)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Kyngstonn Viliamu-Asa is a ball hound tackling machine for the OG Ducks who seems to make all the plays, and doesn’t chance anybody else making them. Asa is a very versatile player. He played a lot of middle linebacker in for the OG Ducks, but has prior experience at the Defensive-Back position so it isn’t a secret he can run & cover just about any receiver or back. With Asa success this year as a Linebacker he is expected to most likely settle in as an outside linebacker/ strong safety at the NexXt level. Asa seems to be very strong and moves very well for a kid his age seeing as how he takes on and shed blockers. He does well to sniff out ball carriers and is a very hard hitter when he gets to his target. Asa is also very quick off of the snap and uses his size to overpower blockers in his pursuit of the passer or ball carrier. His size/athleticism mix has allowed him to be a hybrid linebacker, as he can defend against the run, rush the passer, and use his speed and agility to cover backs out of the backfield, as well. Playing for 1# 14u OG Ducks with a National tradition of producing the NexXt big High School stud Asa is well on his way to bright future.

Name : Vincent Shavers
Measurables: 5’10”- 172 Lbs
Position : ATH
Team : Miami Gardens Ravens (FL)
Class : 2024


Skinny:

An injury riddled 2018 kept the nation from not knowing how talented Vincent Shavers was, this versatile stud ended 2018 strong and stormed into 2019 with a chip on his shoulder. Shavers is a tall, angular athlete with room to fill out his frame. He has great length and quick twitch explosiveness to his game, especially for a youth kid still growing into his body, high-cut athlete. Classified as an athlete or running-back in my eyes, Shavers plays all over the field for his Miami Gardens Ravens. This is appropriate as his baseline skill set translates well to a number of different positions. Shavers has good vision & patience. As a running-back this allows him to carefully read his blocks and allow them to develop, which is the reason Shavers has racked up so many long touchdowns. Shavers is an All-purpose back he can threaten a defense vertically due to a blend of height, long speed, and body control. He has added a couple touchdowns on screen plays alone.
On defense, he is a heavy striker. He generates that pop when squaring up with any opponent. I love to see the way he drives his frame through ball carriers. That said, you can pretty much call Shavers a sure tackler, the way he shows the ability to break his frame down and tackle in space. Shavers is no slouch in coverage he can locate the ball in flight and make plays in the air. The thing that stands out the most about Shavers is the edge he plays the game with he is aggressive at the catch point. Versus the pass he shows pretty good range. He takes efficient routes to the ball because he trusts his speed. There is no doubt Shavers best ball will be played on the NexXt Level at whatever position he decides to play he is an elite athlete.


Name : Jarquez Carter
Measurables: 6’2”-253 Lbs
Position : OL/DL
Team : GTM Hurricanes (FL)
Class : 2025


Skinny:
Jarquez Carter is a youngster that has something you can’t teach which is size, far from a finished product but a load of potential. Though Carter is player notable for more than just size, his stature is where one has to start when evaluating him. Carter is next-level big, for only a 7th grader this kid can easily be mistaken for a High School player. However, as was stated previously, Carter is more than just a hulking, space-eating mass. One of Carter’s most striking qualities is his explosion off the football in a run set. In simpler terms, Carter fires off the ball and attacks at an exceptional rate for someone of his size. This gives him the ability to engage and hit the second level, which will be an asset against bigger and faster competitors once he starts playing in High School. That being said, the most eye-catching quality in Carter’s game is his upper body strength. Especially when he gets to the second level and is able to attack linebackers and defensive backs, Carter is light on his feet so he mauls players in open space because of his superior strength. Carter has showcased the ability to do so at the point of attack as well, toppling defensive linemen with just a simple extension of the arms. Scouting Carter I'd have to say with the way he moves he is also a problem on Defensive-Line, skies the limit for the big fella.

Name : Jeremiah Beasley
Measurables: 5’11”-185 Lbs
Position : RB
Team : Southfield Falcons (MI)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Blessed with athletic genes let’s just say it is in Jeremiah Beasley, the multi-sport star is a beast on the track as well as the Gridiron. I mean when your mom is a former Ncaa basketball star and your father and Ncaa linebacker you can pretty much tell where him and his sibling gets it from. Beasley is the type of player that can make Youth Football defenders look downright silly at times with his smooth patient running style. His most obvious asset is his speed, which he’ll use to consistently beat defenders around the edge of the play and burst into the secondary, making him a real home-run hitter out of the backfield. But what sets Beasley apart from the other running backs in this year’s class is his duality. He has speed, but more importantly he can fight for the tough yards in between the tackles. He’s got good vision, and when he finds the h***, he hits it with authority and explodes into the second level. Once there, Beasley has enough raw lower-body strength to simply overpower smaller defensive backs in the open field. In addition, his often-overlooked receiving skills make him someone to account for on passing plays. Look when you have a brother who just signed with Purdue over LSU & Texas A&M standing 6’6”-230 lbs to play Basketball & Football, you can pretty much figure out this kid is well on his way to following his footsteps.

Name : Quinten Larry
Measurables: 5’6”-159 lbs
Position : RB
Team : Vegas Strong (NV)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Hold your breathe when Quinten Larry has the ball in his possession this kid is a blur and has a knack for ripping off some pretty impressive touchdown runs. Larry is short, but stoutly built. Larry has a next level initial burst, as he's really fast through the h***. As an interior runner, he carries excellent balance, lower body strength and has the leg drive to push the pile and gain the tough yards. Has sick vision both in between the tackles and in the open field. At the Youth level Larry has that top end speed to gain the edge consistently. That said, he's a really good ‘pick and slide' runner with plus ¬level agility quick feet. He is elusive and doesn’t use a lot of wasted lateral movement. His stop and start quickness allow him to slip defenders in the box and side¬step pursuers in space.
It's worth noting that Larry can gather his frame prior to changing direction. Which, he offsets with the suddenness and burst he has coming out of his cuts. This Vegas prospect made a name for himself with a show stopping 2019 season look for him to add to that on the NexXt Level.


Name : Anthony Carrie
Measurables: 5’11”-170 Lbs
Position : RB
Team : Brandon Cowboys (FL)
Class : 2024


Skinny:
Anthony Carrie is an ultra-talented prospect who is long overdue for some shine this kid is a flat out baller with tremendous upside. Carrie is one of the best backs in the class of 2024. As with most elite players, the first thing that pops out if his combination of size and speed. Carrie has the wheels of a back 10 or 15 pounds lighter. Carrie can grind out tough yards due to his size, strength, and determination to keep his legs moving. Some say Carrie runs a tab to high but he gets low and does not present much of a target to hit when need be.
That said, Carrie is definitely more elusive than one might think when first looking at his frame. He has some open-field moves, but more importantly, is elusive between the tackles. While he has the ability to run through defenders, he is able to attack a half man and then run through, which will be important at the next level. And Carrie has excellent balance, making multiple highlight runs after staying upright after contact. He also runs the toss sweep play very well -- something still seen at some High schools. All in all, after seeing Carrie at our FVO event it was pretty clear this kid’s stock was trending upward.

Name : Braylon Burnside
Measurables: 6’1”-180 Lbs
Position : WR/ATH
Team : Mississippi Wolfpack (MS)
Class : 2024

Skinny:
Preseason K.O.C was my first time seeing this physical specimen Braylon Burnside and boy oh boy he didn’t disappoint, from then to now this kid has improved and it’s downright scary how good he can be. Burnside is a tall athlete with great length. At first glance, he appears to have some top end speed but is quicker off the release than his size and angular frame would suggest. Burnside is somewhat raw so he isn’t great running assortment of routes. He is a freakish of an athlete, that does a good job using his body to gain inside position on slants. Burnside is likely to create separation with his quick burst off the line, but will do it more with precise route running, body position, driving away from a defensive back's leverage.
Burnside seems to be getting the proper coaching & schooling in the nuances of the game. He is physical at the top of his routes and has enough speed to create separation at the break point or to assist him in working his way back across the face of the defensive back assigned to him in coverage. He has strong hands and plucks the ball cleanly off his frame. This country boy has a high ceiling and far from being a finished product but has all the tools to excel at the NexXt level.


Name : Taylor Richardson
Measurables: 6’2”-265 Lbs
Position : DL
Team : Gainesville Rattlers (FL)
Class : 2025


Skinny:

Let me, introduce you guys to arguably the top interior lineman in the country in the Class of 2025. The first thing I look at when evaluating defensive tackle prospect is size. Does the player have the bulk to hold the point of attack? Richardson certainly does at 265 pounds. When he plays low, he is able to overwhelm blockers with his power. I also like that Richardson is able to move laterally pretty well, using his powerful hands to shed blockers and work his way down the line in pursuit. I also love what he brings to the table as a pass rusher, he is an explosive force who racks up sacks and pushes the pocket. Watching Richardson in action this X-Factor is advanced beyond his years the way he stacks and splits double teams. This kids skill-set is only going to grow with one more year of Youth football you can bet, he will be doing a lot of the same things on the next level. There is a lot of technique that goes into that, and it's something that young defensive tackles often take a while to get but this kid is ahead of the game.
