October  31,2018 ,

As I previously stated before Postseason football is in full swing with some big match up’s already taking place. I’m here to feed your craving of Youth Football by introducing you to the NexXt Wave of Middle School X-Factors. If you aren’t familiar with the definition of an X-Factor is let me explain. A X-Factor is someone you have to game plan for, an X-Factor is going something happen no matter the circumstances. You can only hope to contain a X-Factor because he just makes things happen.

This select group is chosen based on last years production & offseason performances. While there is a lot of very talented players, I’m only giving you a small sample of what’s to come for this upcoming season. So, lock in GenNexXt ya life up and follow us and our National brand from content to livestream of the top teams around the country. Also bringing you Middle school rankings and features on some of the top players in the country. If you feel your talent speaks for itself send your film, don’t just tell me show me. Now with the intro out the way time tot give you the skinny on the NexXt Wave of X-Factors.

 

X-Factor  Introduction

 

Name: Mark Fletcher

Position: Ath

Measurables: 5’11”-182 lbs

Team: American Heritage (FL)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

If you have been a fixture on the South Florida Youth Football scene for years this Class of 2023 athlete would be at the top of everyone’s list. Mark Fletcher has a lofty list of accolades that are 2nd to none in his class, so it’s no surprise he is playing High School ball as an 8th grader. A long strider with excellent speed, Fletcher has the vision to bounce plays outside, but is also decisive north-south when necessary and capable of getting behind his pads to use his strength to break arm tackles. With a skill set like Fletcher it’s easy to see why he took his talents to the next level with nothing left to prove on the Youth level. When you're already supremely talented on both sides of the ball like Fletcher with the frame to match, you’re looking at a kid that will be a household name whenever it’s his time.

 

 

Name: Christian Rawlings

Position: ATH

Measurables: 5‘7“-125 lbs

Team: Maryland Heat (MD)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

If you were to ask me one word that best describes Christian’s ability that would be “Dynamic”. Dating back to last years Battle DMV K.O.C Christian left a lasting impression on me. As a 7th grader versus some elite competition I might add this kid impacted the game on both sides of the ball. Starting with his ability to make plays in the passing game which simply meant get the ball in his hands this kid would do the rest. Fast, shifty with the footwork of a ballerina once he possesses that pigskin he is sure to make things happen, in most cases that’s changing the score of the game in a blink of an eye. Not to be taken lightly is his ability to shadow your best receiver, because if I didn’t say it before he is a damn good DB also. Special is another word that describes the kid dawning the 2# jersey for the Maryland Heat.

Now a year older Christian seems to be coming into his own looking like a seasoned vet. New year new position, Christian is running wild as a running-back displaying his top end speed & vision. There is little doubt in my mind this young man has all the goods to be considered tops in his class. Still with so much football ahead of him it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where this phenom will make his biggest impact. With all things considered were talking about a kid skilled enough to be considered a 5- star at multiply positions. I’d have to say that’s a great problem to have for this young man, so keep your eye out for this kid coming on fast & strong on a quest to be the best.

 

 

 

 

 

Name: Richard Washington

Position: RB

Measurables: 5’8”-210 lbs

Team: Vegas Strong (Blue) (NV)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

One thing you can’t teach is size. Richard Washington is blessed with the size to play High School ball right now. Often the kids with size talent has to catch up with their body. That’s not the case with Washington who is used to being the youngest kid on the field. But don’t get it twisted for one second you would never know with the edge he plays the game with.

Washington is a North South runner that packs a punch. It’s hard to bring Richard down behind the LOS. Evaluating Richard what catches your eye is his patience as a runner he knows when to get skinny and when to explode out of his cuts. A every down back with a flare for big plays once he gets to the 2nd level. So talented that I can just easily see his value on the defensive side of the ball, seeing as he is a heat seeking missile once you’re in his crosshairs. With the passion this kid plays the game of football with it’s easy to see why he is labeled an X-Factor.

 

 

 

 

 

Name: Jayden Cofield

Position: DL/OL

Measurables: 6’4”-270

Team: San Antonio Outlaws (TX)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Something’s you just can’t hide when scouting football players and that just happens to be size. Jayden is a kid that passes the eyeball test time and time again. Yes, he is a big kid in fact he grew 3 inches since I last saw him which makes him 6’4” now. But that’s only part of the story the other half is this kid potential is thru the roof once he puts it all together. His quiet and gentle demeanor would fool you if you never seen him go to war in the trenches.

Strong as an Ox and light on his feet so light you might not hear him coming but trust you will feel and see him coming. At his age the only thing that Jayden has to figure out is how to use his hands and not take plays off. What I’ve notice about Jayden is he is more engaged when he is on the defensive line. Jayden demands a double team, or he will terrorize your Quarterback & Running-backs. Now that’s not to say this kid isn’t equally as dominated on the Offensive Line just that he seems to enjoy playing defense more. Look for this kid to really come into his own on the next level because the state of Texas produce big-time recruits in the trenches at a alarming rate.

 

 

 

Name: Brandon Inniss

Position: WR

Measurables: 6’0”-171

Team: University School (FL)

Class: 2023

The Skinny :

From the first time I’ve had the honor of covering Brandon Inniss he flashed 5-star potential and hasn’t disappointed yet. No matter how big the moment was or who was the opponent opposite of this phenom he made a play. Yep, this is that player that keeps Defensive Coordinators up at night. So, it was only fitting with nothing else to prove  Brandon next challenge was playing varsity football as an 8th grader. Further solidifying himself as the number 1# ranked player in the Class of 2023, I mean this is the same kid who put on a show as a 7th grader at an invite only University of Miami camp.

With the heart of ah Lion Brandon has made a major impact on the varsity level never once looking back showing why he is highly regarded. Brandon is a playmaker with the ball in his hands, flashing excellent quickness and the ability to make people miss in space. In the U-School spread offense he is a perfect fit, he thrives catching quick outs and wide receiver screens and making plays on the perimeter. Brandon already has an ideal frame with room to grow. As a young player with both size and speed, he is going to be making plenty of plays for U-School for years to come.

 

 

Name: Rohan Davy Jr.

Position: LB

Measurables:

Team: Maryland Heat (MD)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Rohan Davy Jr. Is a linebacker you have to get a body on if you expect to have any success running the ball versus the Maryland Heat. After watching this kid play a couple times you have to appreciate how he is like a magnet to the ball. A no-nonsense old-school style player Rohan has that unique blend of speed & power from sideline to sideline. Also, worth noting as a student of the game Rohan prides himself on being a every down backer, so he isn’t a liability in coverage. Far more than a tackling machine Rohan’s high football iq allows him to test his limits.

With the way the game of football has evolved with spread offenses and four wide receiver sets, it’s only right the younger players evolve with it as well. The kids with tunnel vision at a young age seem to be perfecting their craft at a early age Rohan Davy Jr. Is a prime example of that.

 

 

 

Name: Kameron Davis

Position: ATH

Measurables: 5’8”-168 lbs

Team: Albany Seahawks (GA)

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

Kameron Davis is one of those players you must see in person to fully understand how talented he is. From the very first time I witness how special this kid was it never dawned on me how young he was dominating older kids. To see a kid on everyone’s radar still impact the game when the other team knows they have to stop him, and he still takes over is amazing. If that isn’t special I don’t know what is. He will be ranked high because he’s the best combination of size, quickness and speed in his class so far.

Kam is adept at turning what would be minimal gains for most backs into big plays because of his ability to make tacklers miss. … Davis makes a move at the line and can hit even the slightest of holes on the cutback. … His cuts are sharp, and he never seems to move without a purpose, a sign of his terrific on-field vision. … He can stop and cut quickly, but he also gets to full speed quickly. … He’s a physical runner between the tackles, as well, showing a willingness to lower his shoulder into even bigger defenders. … When he breaks outside, he isn’t afraid to use his stiff arm to get the corner. … He’s a big-play threat because of his quickness. All in all this kid has options and who knows he might just stick with baseball seeing how he is also a blue chip prospect on the baseball diamond.

 

Name: Ie Faoa

Position: LB/ATH

Measurables: 6’0”-190

Team: Vegas Strong Blue (NV)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Sometimes it’s hard to believe some of these kids are still in Middle school because they look the part of a High School player. That was the case when I saw Ie Faoa for the Bishop Gorman Gators flying around the field from his linebacker position. All I could say was “Wow” when his Coach told me he was a 7th grader at the time. The kid just causes havoc wherever he lines up. He can rush the passer. He can move laterally down the line to make tackles. He can drop into pass coverage. He can play offense! He has played QB this year for his Vegas Strong team in addition to linebacker. He effortlessly throws the deep ball while also being able to run it and easily break tackles.

Judging from his family tree history says he might end up being a Quarterback, but in my eyes, I love him as a Linebacker. Projections are just that only this kid knows where his heart is at. With that being said I’m confident where ever he decides this won’t be the last time you hear his name kid is a flat-out BEAST.

 

Name: Richard Young

Position: RB

Measurables: 5”11”-173

Team: Lehigh Raiders (FL)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

It’s hard to ignore speed, I’m talking number 1# in the country in the 100 meters and 2# in the 200 meters. Now add that to a kid oozing with talent on the football field. And you know what you got? I’ll tell you Richard Young who is another freak of nature out of that Ft. Myers area. Richard might have the highest upside to come out of the area since Noel Devine. Were talking man amongst boys competitive nature. Allow me to explain why this kid in my humble opinion has a limitless ceiling.

His diminutive frame belies how comfortable Young is between the tackles. 5-foot-11 "all-purpose backs" are typically edge backs who try to beat contain outside and outrun defenders. Young shows considerable comfort between tackles. He can read blocks better than the typical running back with his speed. He can get skinny between creases too. He can even bounce off the occasional tackle with his signature stiff arm. Don't mistake that Young's greatest attribute is still his speed, especially his acceleration. He might have the best first step of any prospect in the 2023 class. Richard Young has all the tools to become the 1# prospect in his class bar none.

 

Name: Miles McVay

Position: OL

Measurables: 6’5”-310 lbs

Team: East St.Louis Jr. Flyers (MO)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

The beauty of this generations is a good number of these kids that’s blessed with size are Basketball players before ever stepping on the gridiron. Which means these guys are lite on their feet which is big advantage when playing in the trenches. Miles McVay has size, technical ability and versatility is what makes him a prototypical offensive line prospect. He plays with good pad level and is extremely aggressive at the point of attack.

Miles  is a young man that very good initial quickness. He plays with power. He plays with strength and does a good job setting the anchor on pass blocking. Miles is a really athletic offensive lineman that can redirect at the second level. He plays with a lot of physicality and is a guy that can hold point especially on a three technique coming off the ball. Miles is very athletic and plays the game with great passion. This kid has so many things in his favor it’s hard to not get excited about what the future holds for him.

 

 

Name: Kaden Williams

Position: RB/Ath

Measurables: 5’7”-142 lbs

Team: St.James High School (LA)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Doesn’t matter what the scoreboard says a kid giving maximum effort will always standout. True Talents All American game Athlete Kaden Williams made a name for himself running like a mad man.

Speaking of a big play waiting to happen just give Kaden a crease and watch him put his foot in the dirt and get upfield in a hurry. Lightening quick with top end speed, but his biggest asset is his vision. At times when it seems defenders has Kaden dead to right, his peripheral vision kicks in and he turns on the burners out of a jump cut. Some guys just have a nose for the endzone from anywhere on the field Kaden is one of those guys. I’ll say this to I’m blue in the face, “Nothing certifies your mark as a big-time prospect than coming up big on the big stage.

 

 

 

 

Name: Taevin Bonds

Position: Ath

Measurables: 6’2”-200 lbs

Team: Puyall Roughriders (WA)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

The 6'2", 200-pound linebacker holds solid athleticism at the position, but what is most impressive about him is his ability to identify a play, exhibit enough patience to make his move and execute his plan of attack. He's quick enough to catch some of the most elusive runners and strong enough to throw them around like rag dolls. With that kind of skill set, it wasn't a surprise seeing him compete and leave his mark during Fbu for Team Seattle.   

 

 

 

Name: Terrell “Chopper” Cooks

Position: RB

Measurables:

Team: South Bay Spartans (CA)

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

One of the most lethal weapons in the Class of 2024 resides on the West Coast. South Bay Spartans Phenom Terrell “Chopper” Cooks not to be confused with Orange County Choppers. But once this kid reeves his engine up he is a hard act to follow. Chopper scores in a variety of ways from kickoff & punt returns to rushing & receiving touchdowns. Here’s a fun fact about this kid dominance he has multiple 5 touchdown games under his belt, the last being versus the Powerhouse Wilmington Pilots.

Crooks is a slasher that makes a living being able to cut on a dime without losing any speed, leaving defenders in his rearview.  Chopper is a bouncy back. He is shifty and routinely gets the edge on defenders. He becomes more of a nightmare when you allow him to get in open space, which makes it hard to key on him. Were talking about a kid that is skilled enough to line up out wide or in the slot, with his track speed he can get behind the defense in a hurry resulting in frequent endzone visits. Easy to see Chopper is the definition of an X-Factor he has to be accounted for on every snap or be the next victims on his highlight reel.

 

 

 

 

Name: Kevion Gaskins

Position: RB/ATH

Measurables: 5’8”-145 lbs

Team: North Houston Braves (TX)

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

Theirs something that has to be said about any kid turning an All-American game into his personal playground. I will never forget the show Kevion Gaskins put on at the True Talents All American game in New Orleans. It is one thing to look like you’re moving at a different speed, but totally another when you look like a man amongst boys among some of the most talented football players. Let’s count it not one or two touchdowns, this kid scored five touchdowns and all them were over 40 plus yards. Scary huh? Even scarier is he only got better over the summer, I’m talking to the tune of 30 plus touchdowns already and the playoffs starts this weekend. Hmmmmmmm… starting to believe the saying everything is bigger in Texas.

The first thing that stands out about Kevion is his explosion. He has the ability to stick his foot in the ground and explode out of his cut. The acceleration is also apparent, as he hits his top speed quite quickly. Kevion is an aggressive runner who does not dance all that much. He does have the ability to shake defenders, but seems to prefer using his speed to go around them. That's not to say Kevion lacks toughness of physicality. He he has that, too. If you’re looking for a young prospect freakishly athletic and worth the price of admission Kevion Gaskins is it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Name: Preston Zinter

Position: DE/TE

Measurables: 6’2”-175 lbs

Team: BBN Cambridge (MA)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Preston Zinter is an intriguing athlete, a guy who can run and play with strength and use natural abilities to adjust to broken plays and prevent bigger ones. … That said, the most impressive part of Preston game is how he uses his athleticism only to compliment his knowledge of offenses. He’s uncharacteristically patient for a player who can dominate most linemen he encounters, which makes him a weapon against spread offenses on misdirection plays. … A very skilled pass rusher who can beat tackles with speed to the outside and with a quick move to the inside. … A sure tackler who wraps up ballcarriers and brings them down with ease. …

After raving about Preston’s ability as a defensive-end I’d hate to burst someone’s bubble. But the kid is a matchup problem as a tight end with soft hands & wide catch radius he can easily play their full time. Preston has a basketball background which makes him that much more of a scarier match up for opposing defenses. Add the fact he is a physical presence on defense which means he has no issue when it comes to blocking. With along line of athletes in Preston’s family it’s safe to say it’s in his blood.

 

 

 

 

Name: Reqez Nance

Position: ATH

Measurables: 5”7”-146

Team: Motor City Wolverines

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

I don’t know about you guys but it’s just something about seeing a kid in Wolverines uniform sporting the number 21# jersey you just expect something special to happen. The Motor City Wolverines 12u phenom Reqez Nance sports that 21# jersey and puts on a Heisman like show every week. Reqez is the definition of a versatile athlete. He plays quarterback and shows the ability to fling the football while also being elusive in the pocket. He served as a defensive back for the team as well and has the instincts to reel in interceptions in the role. He makes plays no matter where he is at. The old adage is you can't teach speed, and he has plenty of it. He can turn the burners on at any given time, leaving would-be tacklers far behind him.  

His experience has shown flashes of why he would be well suited to play on offense. He looks extremely comfortable with the ball in his hand and shows little hesitation in making quick cuts in traffic. He also is a slippery runner, as defender after defender tried in vein to hang onto him. Instead, they were sent to the ground as Reqez pushed his way down the field.  Frightening to think this kid is only a 7th grade who hasn’t even peaked yet.

 

 

Name: Treyuan Webb

Position: ATH

Measurables: 6’0”-178 lbs

Team: Trinity Christian (FL)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

It’s a testament to ones ability when you make the varsity squad as an 8th grader, let alone being the prospect with three verbal offers under your belt. Trinity Christian is a Power 5 recruiting factory. So that should tell you how good Treyuan Webb is if he is a contributor on the varsity squad. It’s not all about starting but the experience this kid get’s this year will set the stage for the next step in his transition.

Webb can play three different positions . Webb can build a strong national reputation as a cornerback while also taking reps on the opposite side of the ball as a running-back. Webb is an incredible athlete for his age already a solid 6-foot-0 frame and is best used at the safety position when gets a chance to contribute to Trinity Christian, he played mostly in zone coverage as a free safety, and enjoyed success in coverage in the rare times opposing quarterbacks would test him during 15u 7v7 season. When it comes to man coverage, Webb long wingspan helps him press receivers and jam them at the line of scrimmage, which throws off the timing between the quarterback and the receivers he’s covering. You saw most of what Webb was capable of during 7v7 season he get’s late game reps but more on offense.

Webb gets most of his varsity reps at Running-back where he shows off his ability to make things happen when the ball is in his possession. A one cut and up the field long strider with fierce stiff arm he runs with an attitude. Webb has all the traits of a future 5-star prospect just sit back and let him take his bumps before he is dishing his share out.

 

 

Name: Mason Beale

Position: WR

Measurables: 5’10”-145 lbs

Team: Hamilton Tigers (MD)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Mason Beale has great footwork. Watching him on livestream there were times when the cornerback would begin to jam him at the line of scrimmage, but Beale used a quick head fake and stutter step to get past his defender. This quality is nice to have, especially in the DMV area where speed alone will not get the job done. Beale also has the ability to take a short pass and turn it into a big play. Once he gets his stride going he is a hard man to take down.

When you have a habit of making plays when your team needs you the most it is a no brainer in attaching X-Factor to your name. Mason makes big-time plays in primetime games just ask the Maryland Heat.

 

 

 

Name: Oluwakoleade “K.O” Osinubi

Position: ATH

Measurables: 5’10”-155lbs

Team: Belmont Hills (MA)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Kole Osinubi nickname is “K.O” here is one of the reasons he has two attributes that make him lethal on the football field: superb power and breakaway speed. There were many instances during the FBU National Championships of Kole plowing through defenders at the line of scrimmage. It is clear that Kole isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with defenders, and he usually succeeds. Kole is also capable of exploding through tight pockets of defenders near the line of scrimmage and, once he gets past them all, he is extremely hard to catch. Incredibly dangerous in the open field.

I could go on for days the impact Kole makes on the offensive side of the ball but he brings the same passion & intensity on the defensive side as well.  The first thing you’ll notice about Kole is the killer speed he possesses for an outside linebacker or Safety. He has the natural quickness to really fly around offensive tackles in run support, and great closing speed that allows him to make plays in the open field. He’s versatile, having played at both outside linebacker and safety . His acceleration makes for some massive hits on opposing ball-carriers, and he can be incredibly dangerous coming after the quarterback on blitzes. Excellent at stripping the ball away. Plays quite well in space. Could be a real force in coverage as well. You’re looking at a sleeper prospect but pretty sure in any other region he would be a household name already.

 

 

 

Name: Stian Andreassen

Position: OL/DL

Measurables: 5’11”-290lbs

Team: Puyall Roughriders (WA)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

He stands at 5-foot-11, 290 pounds and is deemed as a small appearance for one of his respective position. However, lucky for Stian, he does have a reasonable amount of room to grow considering the fact that his just an 8th grader.

Let’s go back to the build of Stian. Stian may be small but his arm strength and his athletic frame allow him to move comfortably for a big man. Judging from film dating back 3 years ago Stan has started every game since entering Middle school, which is rare. Furthermore, he had been an Offensive-lineman ever since he was younger and I’d have to say that not a lot of guys that are his size have the athleticism that he does. All exemplary of the coachable character that Stian possesses furthering his capabilities at the line of scrimmage. He exerts an appropriate amount of balance and feet toughness to push up and block his defenders. And his quickness off the line would allow Stian to make a smooth transition to center or even offer some flexibility to another offensive line position. With this kids desire to dominate the opposition he is only going to get better.

 

 

 

 

Name: Shawn Russ

Position: LB/ATH

Measurables: 6’1”-169lbs

Team: Lehigh Raiders

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Shawn Russ is the no doubt the state's No. 1 linebacker prospect and the Top 15 National prospect. He stands at 6-foot-1 and only weighs 169 pounds, but he is one of the most athletic linebackers in the country. He covers ground like a safety but he hits like a linebacker.

Just about everything. Russ’s athletic ability allows him to drop into coverage with ease. He has the height to cover tight ends, while also having the speed to pick up running backs and receivers coming over the middle of the field. Russ also has incredible acceleration and once he locates the ball it takes only a matter moments from him to put the opposing player on the ground. For only weighing 169 lbs. Russ generates great power when he tackles and flings smaller players around like rag dolls. Quite simply, Russ’s athleticism and instincts make him a perfect fit to make a major impact on the next level even if he makes a transition to another position.

 

Name: Rod Gainey

Position: RB

Measurables: 5'7”-147

Team: Tampa Bay Area Jaguars (FL)

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

Gainey’s biggest asset is his speed. Seeing him in person over a year ago & looking at his highlights, there are multiple occurrences where Gainey outran defensive players. Another trait that he possesses is elusiveness. He can make defenders miss from all directions, and can shed what would normally be a solid tackle. Defenders have to wrap him up and drag him down, because if they just simply hit him, Gainey will catch his balance and keep on running. His tendency seems to be getting to the outside and breaking down the field. Once he crosses the line of scrimmage and bolts past the defensive linemen and linebackers, it is nearly a guarantee that he will find the end zone. Gainey is versatile in where he can contribute on the field, as well. Gainey also proved his worth in the passing game. There were a few times in when plays fell apart, and the quarterback dump the ball off to Gainey, who would then do what he does best-run fast and make people miss. Even in the passing game he can be reliable and make plays, it seems. If Rod Gaines keeps on the pace he has been on he will be a problem on the next level.

 

 

 

Name: Daquan “Day Day” Young

Position: RB

Measurables: 5”6”-138

Team: Landover Seminoles

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

Versatility. Strength. Speed. These are three of the crucial components for any successful running back, all of which “Day day” has. His versatility allows him to be productive lined up both in the backfield and in the slot. His catching ability makes his Landover Seminoles that much more unstoppable. Strength is key for all running backs, “Day day” can deliver a blow on any given play with his signature mean stiff arm. His low center of gravity and powerful lower body enable him to break arm tackles with ease and be physical in the trenches.

Speed is an added benefit with elite running backs, but it is lethal coming out of the slot. Combined with his patience, Day day’s speed and shiftiness allows him to swiftly move down the field and turn a five yard rush into a 50 yard gain in the flick of an eye. With a quick burst between the tackles, or getting the ball on the perimeter with a jet sweep or swing pass, he can stretch a defense. If you’re a regular at Ayf then you know just how good this kid is.

 

Name: Stacy Gage

Position: Ath

Measurables: 5”10”-176

Team: Riverview Raiders (FL)

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

An excellent athlete, Gage has the ability to affect the game from both sides of the ball. Gage shows off his speed and elusiveness returning interceptions, kickoffs and punts for touchdowns. He is also a big-play threat at the running-back position with natural instincts that compliments his vision.

Gage is able to make tackles in the backfield on sweep plays, closing in quickly from multiple defensive position. While he is no doubt big for his age, he uses his strength and ability to hit extremely hard. Fbu Team Tampa used him at linebacker & defensive end this past season as well. Blessed with the ability to play multiply positions with no drop off, Stacy Gage makes a case for the Iron Man of his class.

 

 

 

Name: Jacorey Watson

Position: ATH

Measurables: 5’7”-145lbs

Team: 713 Cardinals (TX)

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

There is no doubt Watson fits the bill of a run-first quarterback. The most striking quality of his game is his initial burst. Watson is able to explode off of the ball so effortlessly that it sometimes appears as if he has taken three steps before the defenders have taken one.

He epitomizes the idea of a big yardage threat. He plays the offensive side of the ball like a video game character. Though his size is a detriment to his ability to break tackles, Watson is extremely adept at making defenders miss. In the level of competition against which he has played, he has rarely seen an athletic equal, and if he hits the sideline, his speed always carried him at least into the red zone, but more often than not into the end zone. When it’s time change positions is when you will see this kid reach his full potential.

 

 

 

 

Name: Avery Jones-Allen

Position: WR

Measurables: 6”1”-170

Team: Hamilton Tigers (MD)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

There is no shortage of deep balls in Avery’s highlight reel. Jones-Allen has the height and reach to pull down some jump balls in tight coverage. Jones-Allen, however, is not just a deep-ball threat. The wide out for the Hamilton Tigers digs in when shaking cornerbacks on medium depth curls and outs. Jones-Allen accelerates, often picking up plenty of yards after the catch. Jones-Allen is great at splitting the defense in the open field, and most of the touchdowns in his reel come in his yards after catch.

Look for Avery to take his game to another level when he get’s to the next level, his best football is in front of him.

 

Name: Carson Green

Position: Ath

Measurables: 5’6”-146lbs

Team: San Antonio Outlaws (TX)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Doesn’t matter what stages it is Carson Green is going to give 110% and won’t denied when it comes to making plays.

 

 

 

 

 

Name: Semaj "Deuce" Dozie

Position: RB/ Ath

Measurables: 5’11”-165lbs

Team: Eastside Cowboys (MI)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Dozie’s game pointed to his ability as a north and south runner. He brings physicality and toughness to the running back position and doesn't waste much time waiting for holes to develop. Rather, he lowers his shoulder and barrels over defenders for the tough yards, which will prove critical going to the next level. Dozie made a name for himself thanks to an elite blend of speed and power that has allowed him to gash defenses in a multitude of ways.

With the ability to reach top speed through the h*** and accelerate past defenders at the second level. Already Dozie has the frame & the talent to head straight to varsity. It’s what you expect from a kid who averages four trips to the endzone a game. Get your popcorn ready because around this time next year he will no doubt be on local college radars.

 

 

 

Name: Quinterio Lawson

Position: Ath

Measurables: 5’9”-163lbs

Team: Stephenson Jaguars (GA)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

His combination of power and speed in open space stand out, and he is also someone who can make plays in the passing attack. That ability to contribute in the aerial game as well will theoretically help him transition to the next level for all three downs and develop into a game-changing presence.

If he fulfills his potential, Lawson will develop into one of the most versatile players in his class. Simply because he brings the same attributes to the defensive side of the ball. Not to mention he is known for laying the wood. Lawson is a football player thru and thru and will lay it all on the line where ever you need him.

 

 

 

Name: Landon Graves

Position: OL/DL

Measurables: 6’0”-303lbs

Team: Mississippi Wolfpack (MS)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Landon Graves is a strong and physical blocker capable of moving across the line to various positions. Strong, tenacious and relentless, Graves is a consistent pass blocker with both leg drive and arm strength. However, Graves is technically raw and still over-reliant on natural size and strength.

The most striking characteristic of Graves’s play is his tenacity. On running plays, Graves blocks tend to end in one of the three perfect outcomes: on the ground, out of bounds or on a second defender. Always blocking until after the whistle is blown, the 6-foot-0, 303-pound offensive lineman has garnered the reputation of being “nasty,” one of the best compliments an offensive lineman can receive.

 

Name: Jamauri Knox

Position: RB

Measurables: 5”5”-140lbs

Team: Virginia Beach Cavs

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

Knox is the type of player that can make opponents look downright silly at times. 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 Knox 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 great vision, and when he finds the h***, he hits it with authority and explodes into the second level. Once there, Knox has enough raw lower-body strength to simply overpower smaller defenders in the open field. In addition, his often-overlooked receiving skills make him someone to account for on passing plays.

After last years show at Ayf Nationals many are waiting to see will it be an encore performance this year.

 

 

Name: Davion Gause

Position: Ath

Measurables: 5”8”-175

Team: Miami Gardens Ravens

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

Gause is a power back who adds another element to the Miami Gardens Ravens offense. Bullet may not be renowned for his speed, but he has the ability to shed initial tackles and make room for himself. Gause is also able to break through open field tacklers who he meets in one-on-one situations. Along with his power, Gause is very shifty when he gets open space and has cutback ability. Gause is able to use his cutback to steer clear of defenders in the secondary. Bullet has a strong physical build at 5’8” tall and 175 pounds, which allows him to fight through large crowds of defenders and drive a pile to get extra yardage.

Don’t be surprise if this kid finds a home on the defensive side of the ball, he displays natural instincts and a nose for the football. Physical with a chip on his shoulders Bullet’s mind frame is set to impose his will.

 

 

 

 

Name: Gideon Ituka

Position: RB

Measurables: 5’8”180 lbs

Team: Columbia Ravens (MD)

Class: 2024

The Skinny:

A threat to go the distance from any spot on the field. His penchant for explosive plays was on display as a runner and receiver. The first thing that jumps out about Ituka is his body control. He is able to make excellent cuts off of either leg, which is difficult to do. He accomplishes this by having great balance and a low center of gravity. With that low center of gravity, body control and balance, Ituka is able to make cuts at full speed, leaving defenders grasping at air.

The ability to cut at full speed is truly a special one, and for Ituka it is particularly important because he is more quick than fast. That's not to say that he is slow -- he's not by any measure, because once he gets a glimpse of daylight no one is catching him. Just a 7th grader keep an eye out for this kid I have a feeling he will take it to another level.

 

 

 

Name: Khalil Peart

Position: ATH

Measurables: 6”2”-190lbs

Team: I.E Ducks (CA)

Class: 2023

The Skinny:

Khalil Peart has excellent speed that can fool the best defenders and makes the most of each step he takes when lined up as a wide receiver. He has an uncanny ability to go up for passes, fight off defensive backs for the ball and reel in inaccurate passes, skills that will make him well-liked by his quarterbacks down the line. Peart also possesses above-average blocking skills that can disrupt any defender looking to break up a play in which the 6-feet 2 and 190 lbs. player is not directly involved in. His reliable hands transfer extremely well in his play on the defensive side of the ball, where Peart may ultimately end up once he hits the next level.

It's hard to ignore this kid upside when every time his team plays he is always coming up big. A physical specimen at receiver and thorn in your side when he is on defense. Not everyone can have this problem which is actually a gift.
