June 1, 2018 Dallas, Tx.

With the NFL draft fresh on my mind, seeing tons of kids I’ve watched since their youth football days get drafted or go on to sign free agent contracts. I’d say this has to be the most rewarding part of my job as a journalist & scout. That experience alone had me chomping at the bit just to cover The Process All American game, Team Framp vs Team Talib. I mean I only get the chance to watch some of the best youth football players from around the country from 3rd to 8th grade. Then to top it off you also have some of the best Coaches from around the country that are at the top of their game. With two of the main ingredients already involved, it was no doubt in my mind Memorial Weekend would be nothing short of a movie.

Leading up to the Memorial Day showdown these All Americans got the opportunity to practice at Aqib Talib’s A1 state of the art training facilities. Not only did these kids get to mingle & take pictures with a future H.O.F but they also got to pick his brain. Which got me to wondering how do the All-star & All American coaches compact so much information to the kids in such a short period of time. But during the classroom sessions all my questions were answered, at that moment I realized why the coaches were considered the best in the country. With game plans in place, swagged out Batttle uniforms & accessories, brand new Xenith helmets it was game time.

One thing I wouldn’t wish on anybody is that Texas heat sheesh it was scorching hot at Bishop Lynch Senior High School. Rather than give you a summary of each game I’ll just tell you Team Talib edged out Team Framp in the series 3-2 with one game resulting in a tie. Now with that being said I’m going to give you the meat & potatoes of the showdown, which happens to be my Top Performers list. With talent from around the country and the playing field being leveled, I will introduce you to the players who took it to the NexXt level.

 

The Process Top Performers

 

Name: Bryson Mathis II

Position: RB

Team: Talib (TX)

Class: 2027

Skinny:

Speed, speed and more speed, Bryson is one of those kids you want to see if he is as fast as he looks on film. Well that question was answered time after time, no one was stopping this kid from hitting that corner. The only thing that stopped this kid from racking up 3 long touchdown runs was the referees, yes count not one but two long touchdown runs called back. But the one that counted came on a direct snap to Bryson the run left the crowd in awe, as Bryson turned on the burners to get to the corner showing off his top-notch footwork cutting thru traffic for the score. One thing for sure is this young fella is definitely worth the price of admission.

 

 

Name: Brandon Johnson

Position: OL/DL

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2027

Skinny:

The thing I love about Unlimited Football is getting these big kids a chance to work on their craft early instead of learning in High School. Brandon is a kid ahead of the curve with so much time to get even better. Regardless of age or grade Brandon was one of the most dominant defensive linemen on the day. Let’s talk numbers, Brandon accounted for 3 sacks with 5 tfl this kid lived in his opponents backfield. With his unique blend of speed & power, I guarantee you will be hearing his name for years to come.

Name: Ethan “Boobie” Feaster

Position: LB

Team: Talib (La)

Class: 2027

Skinny:

Watching the Team Talib 3rd grade team thru the view finder of my camera I started to notice a reoccurring theme. That theme was Ethan aka “Boobie” was on every tackle or assisting on it. Kid has a nonstop motor & a nose for the football, he plays the game with that old school linebacker mentality rough & rugged. At this age you can never project what position a kid will end up playing, but with Boobie’s heart & motor you can bet he will make a name for himself.

 

 

 

 

Name: Terel Dallas Jr.

Position: Qb/Db

Team: Framp (Fl)

Class: 2027

Skinny:

The game of football has been changing it has trickled down to even the younger kids with more of an emphasis on the passing game. Terel Dallas Jr. Is a kid who has benefited from learning the passing game early. This lefty had a rocky start leading his team taking some hits early, but he was most resilient when his team was down & needed him the most. Live streamed for the country to see on Memorial Day, Terel would show off his bigtime arm making two jaw dropping throws to get his team back in the game. His touchdown pass was a thing of beauty he laid it right on his receivers outside shoulder and caught him in stride. Now with an older brother playing for the University of Miami and another brother with Power 5 offers, it’s safe to say it’s just in his blood.

 

 

 

 Name: George Sanders III

Position: Dl/Ol

Team: Frump (Mo)

Class: 2027

Skinny:

Pure nose guards are rare to find at any level of football especially on the youth level. But after watching George Sanders III play this kid might’ve found a home there. George proved to be a thorn in Team Talib’s side, disrupting run plays applying pressure to the Quarterback even sacking him once. That number 66# put in work on both sides of the ball, but defense seems to be his more natural fit down the line.

 

 

Name: Rodney Townsend

Position: Wr

Team: Framp (FL)

Class: 2027

Skinny:

Townsend is a natural hands catcher that does a nice job catching the ball at its highest point as well as not letting it get to his body. Uses his size really well to win one on one matchups. Does a nice job of being physical to create separation to make the catch. Folks this kid is only a 9-year-old and his hand and eye coordination is far beyond his years. The tools he possessed allowed him to make 3 huge catches including a clutch 41-yard touchdown reception to get his team back in the game. Rodney seems to be natural at things that makes for the making of a potential special talent at the position.

 

 

 

Name: Kyden Barker

Position: Qb

Team: Talib ((Tx)

Class: 2026

Skinny:

Football is a quarterback game. If you’ve got a good one, it can make all the difference. Case in point Kyden Barker for his age this kid is a marksman when fitting the ball in tight windows. After seeing one beautiful touch pass, I locked in to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. And low and behold when giving time this kid showed poise in the pocket and delivered darts. Barker would throw 2 touchdown pass on the day, but he also made the throws to extend drives as well. Texas is the state that seems have no shortage of field generals, Kyden has all the tools to be next in line in the near future.

 

 

Name: Bryant Junius

Position: Rb/Lb

Team: Talib (Fl)

Class: 2026

Skinny:

Bryant is definitely a very good athlete, but it’s the instincts he shows at linebacker to go along with the physical skills that make me excited about his long-term potential playing the position at the next level. When his number was called on offense he produced with his physical style also showing breakaway speed on his touchdown run. The thing Bryant has going for him is he is young; the kid brings it on defense and is a problem. One problem that is great to have is versatility, where ever his heart is at look for him to excel at that position.

 

Name: Xavier "Tiggy" Davis

Position: Wide Receiver

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2026

Skinny:

There really is no substitute for speed in the game of football. It can make other limitations seem a lot less important in a hurry if someone has the ability to run by someone else and that’s exactly the kind of ability that Xavier "Tiggy" Davis possesses. Call Tiggy the crowd pleaser, he turned a routine grab into a long run after the catch touchdown. If that wasn’t enough he climbed the ladder over two defenders for a catch and almost scored for the 2nd time. As for an encore for young Tiggy's monstrous performance on the day he sealed Team Framp's fate with a game clinching interception putting the game away.  After having the pleasure of watching this X-factor play, I want to see more kid is so advanced & versatile  for his age it’s scary.

 

 

Name: Malachi Toney

Position: Qb/Ath

Team: Framp (Fl)

Class: 2026

Skinny:

Malachi is the definition of a threat as a runner at the quarterback position. He’s the kind of player that a defense has to account for on every play whether it is a designed run or a scramble. Even if you think you have played him perfectly, he can still outrun you and gain huge yards. One of the few guys who has the ability to take the ball to the house every time he runs with the ball. Watching Malachi direct a offense it’s obvious he has an high football iq and not to be taken lightly in the passing game. With not much time versus Talib’s defensive front, Malachi kept the ball on the zone read breaking tackles and outrunning the defense for a 39-yard touchdown run. With so much football left to play for this passionate football player he is well on his way to the top.

 

 

 

Name: Quanell Farrakhan

Position: Ath

Team: Frampton (Tx))

Class: 2025

Skinny:

It isn’t easy being a versatile football player, but Quanell sure makes it look like it is. There is not much on the football field that Quanell doesn’t do well. Case in point for Team Framp Quanell played multiple positions racking up yards from Running back position, as well as catching an 18 yard Touchdown pass as a receiver. Oh yeah, the kid even plays Db at a high level. Thank God for choice because Quanell can play anywhere at a high level without any drop off.

 

 

Name: Byron Louis

Position: Athlete

Team: Talib (FL)

Class: 2025

Skinny:

Byron Louis is normally a receiver with his team back home a very good one I might add. But this past week this kid has proved he is much more especially with the ball in his hands. It’s as a runner where it is evident what a great athlete he is. He doesn’t look overly explosive in terms of his speed, yet he is able to run away from defenders. Byron put his team on the board in the Wildcat where the defense knew he was getting the ball but still couldn’t stop him. Also note that this kid showed the same intensity on the defensive side of the ball, picking up an interception that almost lead to his team victory. Even though his team fail short Byron was arguably the best player on the field for 4 quarters.

 

 

Name: Isaiah Marshall

Position: Qb

Team: Framp (Mi)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

There are so many intangibles that go into being a great quarterback that have nothing to do with film. Isaiah is no doubt the top Qb in his class, he displays command in the huddle as well as being composed in the pocket not to mention a high football Iq. Watching this phenom going through his progressions and finding the right receiver. I could see him scanning the field and then delivering the ball to the proper read rather than locking in on one guy. Isaiah is advanced beyond his years he even throws his guys open rather than waiting for them to get to the spot. Memorial Day was his show hadn’t not been for a couple dropped passes he easily could’ve thrown 4 touchdown passes. Leading his team to a 14-0 victory throwing for over 150 yards with 1 touchdown pass stamped him alas the 1# signal caller in the class of 2024.

 

 

Name: Kari Jackson

Position: Dl/Ol

Team: Framp (Mi)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

Size, speed, and strength will always be valuable in football. Kari Jackson has the size, speed, and strength that are exceptional for his age in a football player, but it’s his ability to bend and finish plays that makes him an Elite prospect just off of physical attributes alone. I am quite sure Team Talib’s offensive players will have nightmares on how Kari wrecked pure havoc. Kari racked up 2 sacks plus 4 tfl not to mention the plays he disrupted for his teammates to make plays. This kid left a lasting impression on me, can’t wait to see him in action again he is that good.

 

 

Name: Xavier Bowman

Position: Wr Team:

Framp (Mi)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

Xavier Bowman is a big target on the outside. He is built like a linebacker and is going to be a difficult player for any defensive back to tackle after he gets the ball in his hands. Were talking about a young man that averages 20 points and plays AAU ball for the North Coast Blue Chips 12u team same organization as Lebron James Jr.. Bowman has outstanding size and is a true mismatch against any corner. He has great speed for how big he is as well, with his Basketball background you know he is jumping out them gym. Still getting comfortable with playing football so he is still raw in areas of his game. But don’t tell team Talib that he had 3 catches for 68 yards he breezed by db’s with ease. Frightening to imagine how good this young man can be with time, his ceiling is thru the roof.

 

 

Name: Vincent Shavers

Position: Ath

Team: Framp (Fl)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

Vincent Shavers does a great job of reading the quarterback’s eyes and has the speed to close on the football. He opens up his hips and accelerates well to the football.  Most importantly, he has great ball skills and can finish plays in coverage. He does a great job coming up and supporting the run and tackles well in space. He’s a physical player that hits through ball carriers. I could go all day talking about how this kid was all over the field finishing the game with 5 tackles couple assist and 2 tfl. Also, not to be forgotten is his impact in the running game Shavers scored from 8 yards out. Yes, this young man is very talented athlete skies the limit.

Name: Debron Gaitling

Position: Wr

Team: Framp (Ga)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

Debron Gaitling isn’t just big, he plays big. He utilizes his body to shield defenders away from the ball which makes him a big-time target in the redzone. He can high point the ball and catch it where most corners can’t get to it. Before you go to thinking he is just redone threat, let me tell you how he turned a back shoulder throw to a 62-yard touchdown reception. With room to grow and still continue to develop this Atlanta Panthers stand out has a chance to be in the discussion as tops in his class.

 

 

Name: Semaj Jackson

Position: Lb/Ath

Team: Framp (Fl)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

It’s very easy to get caught up watching big hits on a highlight tape. Semaj Jackson delivers plenty of those. But Semaj is much more than punishing hits, he has great physical tools combined with great instincts and advanced technique. All of that equals up to him being one of the best defensive players in his class. When you’re accounting for 8 tackles 2 tfl and a forced fumble in an All American you have arrived. The thing I love most about this kid is he isn’t much of a talker his pads and his play do that for him. Call him the Silent Assassin like the great Steve Atwater.

 

 

Name: Caleb Mitchell

Position: Dl

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

When it comes to physical gifts, there aren’t many that compare to YU Yellowjackets Caleb Mitchell He looks like he was sculpted to be the prototype defensive end. He is still growing into his body and is going to be much bigger and stronger in few years than he is now. He has ideal arm length for the position and looks exactly who every coach would want a defensive end to look at that age. Caleb is nowhere near being finish product, but even being raw he terrorized team Framp. How does 2 sacks with 4 tfl sound for a kid still learning on the job? Impressive huh. Well this one man wrecking crew is still a work in progress, but there is no doubt in my mind you’re looking at a future 5-star recruit when he figures it out.

 

Name: Hines Ward Lilomaiva

Position: Ath

Team: Talib (Cali)

Class: 2024

Skinny:

Over the past 2 years Hines Ward Lilomaiva has arguably been the top Rb in his age group. Hard to dispute facts when he is a huge reason why his Wilmington Pilots are back to back Ayf National Champions. Versus Team Framp on Memorial Day it was hard to find any running lanes for the Pilots X-factor. But no worries for this kid he is a football player not restricted to one position. With Team Framp putting on a passing clinic, Hines took on the task of covering their top receiver resulting in 3 pub. This kid helped to stop the bleeding, because after all big time players make big time plays in big time games. And you’re looking at one of the class of 2024 top players in the country.

 

Name: Keltric Luster

Position: Qb

Team: Talib (TX)

Class: 2023

Skinny:

Keltric Luster runs the zone read very well. He can make people miss in the open field and has great vision as a runner. He can gash a defense when he gets the right opportunity. He avoids the rush well and can improvise and make plays on the run. While keeping his eyes down field and creating big plays off of this. All the attributes I mention about this Dual-threat young Qb were on full display. Luster ran for 2 touchdowns also threw a touchdown pass leading Team Talib to the most lopsided win on the day 42-14. If you’re looking for the 1# Qb in the class of 2023 look no further than Texas native Keltric Luster he holds that title.

 

 

Name: Dahmeir Scott

Position: RB

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2023

Skinny:

Dahmeir Scott has tremendous feet and balance as a runner. He never goes down on first contact and has the ability to run through tackles. He hits the h*** very fast and is a good inside runner. Runs with authority and is not afraid to run people over. His speed is good enough to get the corner and take it the distance. Scott lead the ground assault on Team Framp accounting for 1 of the teams four touchdowns on the ground. With more than enough size Scott showed glimpses of what makes him one of the top backs in the Lonestar state.

 

Name: Lontrell “BooBam” Turner

Position: Rb/ Ath

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2023

Skinny:

Every team at any level of football is looking for a dynamic presence to make big plays for them. Someone who can turn three-yard gains into eleven. Eleven-yard gains into twenty-five. Twenty-five-yard gains into six points. Lontrell aka “BooBam” is a very confident & vocal leader on his team, put it like this he walks it like he talks it. Smooth and light on his feet with a killer combo of vision & patience to allow his blocks to develop, BooBam gets the job done and Memorial Day was no different. Over 50 yards rushing with 1 touchdown along with a couple tackles on defense, it’s safe to say this kid is a bonafide stud.

 

Name: Jeremiah Jones

Position: Ath Team: Framp (Tx)

Class: 2023

Skinny:

No matter the circumstances or what the scoreboard read, Jeremiah Jones left it all on the field. It’s something to be said about a kid that made plays all over the field giving a 110% on every play. Jones broke up passes, pulled up and accounted for at least 5 tackles. Last but not least he scored on a touchdown reception. His team may have suffered the defeat, but this kid played like winner.

Name: Savion Redd

Position: WR

Team: Framp (Tx)

Class: 2022

Skinny:

Savion has it all physically. Some High School receivers aren’t put together like he is. His catch radius is impressive. He can flat out go up and get the football and is tremendous at catching bad balls that should be incompletions and hauling them in. He has great hands and always snatching the football away from his body. Even when there is contact, it doesn’t faze him and he is able to bring down the football the majority of the time. He uses his body really well to shield defenders and will also just go up over top of them to grab the football. He has the speed to threaten over the top and is a beast after the catch. He fights hard for extra yards and can run through arm tackles. He has the ability to take short passes to the house and pursuit to the football is huge if facing him because he can shake that first defender and be gone. Team Talib couldn’t contain this future phenom he made an ESPN top 10 play on a touchdown he snatched over two defenders. Get your popcorn ready watching this kid he is as advertised ah #Beast

 

Name: Deshaun Lee

Position: Db/Ath

Team: Framp (Mi)

Class: 2023

Skinny:

One of the most dangerous playmakers with the ball in his possession decided to focus on Defensive back because he gets it. That mind frame alone tells me Deshaun Lee is ready to take it to another level. Deshaun has very good ball skills. He uses his length well to contest and break up passes. He can also be a physical presence when the ball is in the air. If he can’t make a play on it, he’s looking to make the receiver pay for catching it. He does a good job of reacting quickly and planting his foot to break on the football, Deshaun has elite footwork. That will help him transition to the High school level and help at breaking up passes. You can tell versus Team Talib Deshaun was dialed in at corner he didn’t allow any catches had 2 pbu, 5 tackles and a forced fumble. Stamp this kid with the seal of approval future 5-star if he keeps growing.

 

 

 

Name: Emeka Megwa

Position: Ath

Team: Framp (Tx)

Class: 2022

Skinny:

Any time I see that a linebacker is also a running-back on offense, it’s a check mark in the positive section for me as an evaluator. I don’t care about how a future linebacker runs the ball. I care that he is an athlete and playing running-back usually equates to a kid being a pretty good athlete. He is a downhill player that is great in pursuit. He always is attacking. It allows him to make a ton of tackles for loss and knife into the backfield. Emeka is freak of athlete it showed Memorial Day versus Team Talib he was stalking ball carriers making plays all over the field. Even though Emeka had limited carries on offense you seen the potential. I have to keep an eye on this kid something tells me he is on his way to a special High school career.

 

 

 

Name: Safdar McCrary

Position: Qb Team:

Framp (Cali)

Class: 2022

Skinny:

Safdar is a prospect I wanted to evaluate with my own eyes playing in Northern Cali left me with questions, so the Process was the perfect situation. Although Safdar made two mistakes the talent is for sure there, still raw as a passer and developing. Now on the upside of things this kid has heart, speed & toughness and plays with passion. He made some pretty impressive plays with his feet running over defenders in his path. As for arm strength he made a big time throw to Savion Redd for a touchdown that excited the crowd. But in this kid defense All American games only allows two to three days of practice for a Qb that is a hard job. So, with that being said Safdar frame and physical attributes It's safe to say if he makes the right choice on High school he will be one of the top Field generals in the class of 2022.

 

 

Name: Jacob Williams

Position: Dl/Ol

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2022

Skinny:

Players like Jacob Williams is why the state of Texas is so talent rich. They just have guys like him that bigger, faster, stronger than many other states don’t have. The athletic big man has the tools to develop into a dominant force against the run and the pass at the next level. Rather it was collecting pancakes on the offensive line or making a home in offensive backfield Jacob dominated both lines of scrimmage. I was told from the first day of practice how good Jacob was he proved it bringing home Defensive MVP. What better way to prove you’ve arrived as a prospect than taking your game to another level on an even playing field.

 

 

 

 

Name: Jarred Kerr

Position: DB

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2022

Skinny:

There’s always a balance between great athlete and great football player when it comes to evaluating Youth football players. In most cases, it’s a little bit of one and a little bit of the other with some room to improve in both areas. That’s what I see with safety Jarred Kerr someone who is a really good athlete and flashes some skills that can make him a top recruit on the next level. He has good speed and even better change of direction skills. He transitions very fluidly. He already has the size to play safety at the high school level. Jarred flashed several times versus Team Framp, none brighter than when he baited the Quarterback into a throw jumped the route with the pick six that went 101 yards for the score. Jarred has natural instincts as a defensive back which leads me to believe that’s his calling.

 

 

 

Name: Kevin Adams

Position: Rb

Team: Talib (Tx)

Class: 2022

Skinny:

Kevin Adams is a strong runner that has the lower body strength to run through tackles. He isn’t someone who is going to go down on first contact very often and a lot of defensive backs will struggle to bring him down. Kevin does a nice job of lowering his pad level when he has to as well. He’s not a huge make-you-miss back but shows a little bit of subtle wiggle to avoid defenders. Team Talib rode Kevin Adams to victory behind his 2 rushing touchdowns and over 90 yards rushing. Kevin dished out the pain with his bruising style of running, but don’t get it twisted he has that extra gear to get missing. This special talent was virtually unknown to much of the state of Texas, but Kevin made it clear he is a force to be wrecking with. Throw his name in their as best 8th grade back in the state of Texas.
