Las Vegas Badger Sports 7-on-7 Notebook

Posted by Bryan Fischer

LAS VEGAS - One of the top corners at the Las Vegas Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7 tournament this past weekend was Ishmael Adams of event runner-up Team 1925. A big reason why he was routinely shutting down opposing teams' best receivers is the on and off the field work he puts in.

"I never feel like I'm at the peek of my game," Adams said. "I'm working on my speed with Maurice Greene. Out on the field, Brian Kelly is helping me with my footwork and hands. Keyshawn Johnson is helping me with my alignment and reading wide receivers and what they're going to do. Kelly helps a lot with cover-two because he's been to the pros where they practice that a lot."

Holding offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Oregon, SMU and Washington, Adams is planning on taking a few unofficial visits to get to know some schools a bit better.

"I'm going to Oregon's Junior Day," he said. "I'm going to visit Washington and try and go to a Cal camp. I'm going to try and get to UCLA, I think I'm going to try and get up there next week or the week after that. I'm also trying to get to a USC camp."

"With Adams' recruitment figuring to heat up over the coming months, especially with the May Evaluation period on the horizon, the 5-foot-10, 185 pound corner is looking at all schools but does see one standing out from the pack.

Not yet, I'm just keeping everything open right now," Adams said. "Washington talks to my family a lot so I talk with them and they're being real with me."

One of the first things Adams is looking for in a school is a strong dentistry program, which is what he would like to major in. Facilities and coaching staff are two other factors that will influence his eventual decision.

Utah athlete Hansen impressing at multiple positions

One of the most intriguing players at the competition was Highland (Utah) athlete Chase Hansen. A true embodiment of the athlete label, the talented recruit was working on one side of the ball during most of the tournament.

"I've been working on a lot of quarterback things but I'm out (at 7-on-7) mainly working all defense," Hansen said. "I'm definitely trying to work on defensive back/linebacker type stuff like footwork and whatever else I need."

Hansen likely projects best as a safety on defense with his 6-foot-3, 210 pound frame and good speed. However, he displayed a strong arm in limited action as a junior and has seen a number of teams also give him a look on the offensive side of the ball.

"It's been mixed. Basically what they've been saying is athlete," he said. "Some schools have said quarterback, other schools have said linebacker. Utah has said athlete while Washington has said just quarterback.

"Whatever position I'll be best at but I've been kind of working towards quarterback. We'll see what happens because I feel like I can play defense. But quarterback is definitely something I'll be working towards."

Holding just two scholarship offers, Hansen is starting to see interest from several Pac-12 schools increase and could be on the verge of several more offers.

"Just BYU and Utah right now," he said. "Stanford is recruiting me pretty heavily as a safety/quarterback and Washington as just a quarterback. As far as BYU and Utah, I'm just waiting to see what happens and get an idea of what I want to do."

Hansen is planning on taking in one-day camps at Stanford, USC, BYU and Utah over the next few months to continue to get noticed by college coaches. He recently took an unofficial visit to see the Cardinal in person and is in the process of planning several others.

"I just took one to Stanford and might take one to Washington as well as Oregon," he said. "Stanford was awesome. I mean it's Stanford. I've always kind of wondered what the visit would be like and it was good, if not better than I thought it would be. The facilities, the tradition, the field was awesome. The city where it's located is awesome too."

Hansen plans on taking his time and waiting for more offers to come in before making a decision.

Cope-Fitzpatrick sees recruiting pickup

Rocklin (Calif.) tight end Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick is one of the top pass catchers on the West Coast and is starting to see his list of scholarship offers reflect as much.

"I picked up two from Colorado and Nebraska," Cope-Fitzpatrick said. "It's nice getting an offer from Nebraska, outside the Pac-12. Florida said they are going to offer in May. A lot of schools said when they come out (for the May Evaluation Period) they're going to offer."

Though the May Evaluation period may see his stock take off even further, Cope-Fitzpatrick is planning to tone things down between now and then on the recruiting front.

"It looks like I'm going to take a break right now," he said. "I've got spring ball so no visits or anything. Right around May things should pick back up again. I'm going to the Stanford Nike Camp because it's closer to where i live in the Sacramento area. It's convenient so I can take more trips. I'm going to do some college camps but I don't know which ones yet. Maybe to some ones that I don't have an offer to so I can show them."

Cope-Fitzpatrick recently took in Cal's Junior Day and throughly enjoyed his visit the Berkley. The Bears are one of his five Pac-12 offers but he doesn't plan on narrowing the list anytime soon.

"My main thing right now is to just get quantity," he said. "I'd like to get as many as I can until July and then cut it down to eight and stick with my eight all the way through December. Then I'll make my decision in early December. Definitely before Signing Day, I want schools to know I'm their guy."

News and Notes

- 2013 Bingham (Utah) defensive end Lowell Lotulelei was named Defensive Line MVP while Encino (Calif.) tackle Jordan Simmons was named Offensive Line MVP.

- Upland (Calif.) wide receiver Kenny Lawler said his recent commitment to Arizona State, "Was a soft verbal." He'll take all five of his official visits in the fall and will visit UCLA's spring practice and go to the Nike Camp at USC. Lawler also plans on attending the Arizona State Junior Day on April 2nd.

- Marc Evans was the top quarterback at the event and led his team, B2G, to a comeback win in the championship game. Though he doesn't have an offer, he said Cal and Oregon State are the front runners. He added that he plans on taking in Oregon State's spring game next month.

- Wide receiver Bryce Treggs said he was still sitting at eight offers, including ones from Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Stanford and UCLA. He is in the process of attending Junior Days over the next few months in order to get to know the coaching staffs of several schools.

"I'm going to ASU Junior Day and Notre Dame on the 16th," he said. "I was at Cal Junior Day and that was pretty good."

- Quarterback Jeff Lindquist reported offers from Washington, Washington State, Stanford and Northern Colorado but it appears that the Huskies might have the upper hand in his recruitment.

"It's really exciting, that's been my childhood school," he said. "I like the coaches and it's a really good school. Both my parents went there and I like that it's close to home."

- Wide out Kodi Whitfield is holding an Arizona State offer and recently picked up one from Washington. The Atlanta-born Whitfield said he plans on checking out several SEC schools such as Georgia in addition to taking a closer look at several Pac-10 schools.

"I have a lot of interest in Washington and I want to take a visit up there and will probably go up there for their spring game on April 30th," he said. "I'm thinking about going to Arizona State's Junior Day on the 2nd. I've taken a Junior Day visit to UCLA and have been receiving mail from Pac-10 schools like Oregon, Stanford, USC, Cal and some Big 10 schools like Northwestern."

B2G comes out on top (again) at Vegas 7-on-7

Posted by Bryan Fischer

LAS VEGAS - On another dreary day on the campus of UNLV, defending champion Team B2G proved that - especially in Las Vegas - it's hard to knock off the champ. Running the two minute drill to perfection to tie the game, the defending Las Vegas Badger Sports 7-on-7 champions pulled out the narrow victory over Keyshawn Johnson's Team 1925 in a thrilling, back and forth game between California based all-star teams. 

Following the game-tying touchdown with no time left on the clock, B2G grabbed a quick 10 yard completion to pull out the win in a longest yard-format overtime. The come from behind victory over rival 1925 made holding up the trophy that much sweeter for many on the team.

"it was amazing. To win twice, I feel like this one was even better than last year," Rocklin (Calif.) tight end Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick. "We did so bad yesterday and this is my last time out and I'm going out a winner. I'm going out on top.

"This should have been a TV show."

There were plenty of camera crews in attendance at the popular event but Cope-Fitzpatrick would likely tell them to erase the tape of B2G's round-robin play from Saturday, when the team went 1-3. They ended up seeded 27th out of the event's 34 teams but the talented group of all-stars ended up pulling things together for day two.

Thanks to several great plays from USC-bound wide receiver Jordan Payton early in the game, Team 1925 took a 22-16 lead ahead of B2G's final posession. Though they gave up the game tying touchdown, 1925 almost had a chance to win the game in overtime but highly regarded wide receiver Bryce Treggs couldn't quite get to a deep pass along the sidelines for the win.

"I tried to adjust to it but the wind pushed it a little bit," Treggs said. "You just have to adjust to it, you can't use the wind as an excuse."

B2G ran through their section of the bracket to reach the championship game, finding the end zone with ease using a move-the-chains attack. The impressive play Sunday afternoon was a much different sight from the day before when the team struggled to score offensively.

"We were a lot more focused today. We fixed a lot of the little things, looking the ball in, coverages and everybody's energy was up," Cope-Fitzpatrick said. "(Marc Evans) lit it up. Michael Bercovici did the same thing last year."

Evans, a lightly recruited quarterback stole the show from many of his talented teammates. Rarely throwing an incompletion, the 6-foot-2, 210 pounder out of Ventura (Calif.) displayed poise and a strong arm as he led his team to the championship.

"It was really fun out here with all my teammates," Evans said. "All these players are D-1 talent and I can go to any one of them. It's really just what the defense gives me. Just take what they give you because sometimes you don't know what coverage they're going to be in. I always just look for the open man."

Evans played well throughout the day and took the reigns of his team as the only quarterback taking snaps once single elimination play began. He had good touch and was impressive in looking off defenders and going through his progression. The very humble Evans never seemed to get caught up in the moment and came into the day focused on just getting better.

"Mainly working my deep ball," he said. "Quicker release, throwing off my back foot too."

Though Evans does not hold any offers, Cal and Oregon State are among the schools that have showed interest. He plans to unofficially visit the Beavers while they go through spring practice. Likely to receive more attention based on his performance the past two days, Evans is looking for one offer in particular.

"UCLA is probably my main one," he said. "I've always liked them ever since I was a little kid. I went to the Oregon State-UCLA game and I really liked it. I've always wanted to play there."

Based on his performance at the Badger Sports 7-on-7 tournament, it wouldn't be all that surprising if the now championship-caliber signal caller gets his wish.

Badger Sports Day 1 Standouts

Posted by Bryan Fischer

LAS VEGAS - Wind? Check. Cold? Check. Elite talent? Double check.

That was the story at the Badger Sports Elite Lineman Challenge and 7-on-7 competition held on the campus of UNLV on Saturday. Some of the top talent from all over the west came to compete and get noticed. Here's six players who stood out with their play on the field.

1. Wide receiver Deontay Greenberry

The Fresno (Calif.) wide out/safety was one of the few players to make consistent play after play despite the conditions. It's hard to stand out from the crowd with so many players at an event like this but Greenberry easily was the top performer. The 6-foot-2, 180 pounder has good size and speed and was a touchdown machine all day. Greenberry was also smooth in coverage and picked off several passes. At this point he is probably more of a wide receiver but he could play safety due to his excellent size.

2. Wide receiver Darreus Rogers

The USC commit was the complete package out on the field. Rodgers ran good route and got in and out of his break quickly on most routes while using his body to effectively keep defensive backs away from the ball. He was a terror in the red zone and had a great set of hands that snatched the ball out of the air.

3. Quarterback Troy Williams

On a day where the wind was gusting up to 40 miles per hour, Williams was one of the few quarterbacks who seemed to deal with the wind well. Though he doesn't have ideal height at 6-foot-1, he has a cannon and can throw the ball just about everywhere on the field. The Harbor City (Calif.) signal caller said he has offers from Washington and Nevada but that Oregon has been showing interest. Though he didn't have the best set of receivers on the field at times, Williams made his team better and led them on an impressive run in round-robin play, including an upset of all-star Team 1925.

4. Offensive lineman Jordan Simmons

Simmons is one of the best offensive linemen in California and he showed he's one of the best in the west with his performance in the Elite Lineman Challenge earlier in the morning. He's adjusted his weight and looks better than he has in the past but still projects to be a very good guard at the next level. He threw bags and defenders away with ease and was surprisingly agile for someone his size. He said he'll visit local school USC unofficially in a few weeks but he's wide open at this point and has offers from coast-to-coast.

5. Cornerback Kevon Seymour

Holding down the corner spot for one of the top teams in the event, B2G, Seymour was impressive in coverage against some of the top wide receivers in the competition. The Pasadena (Calif.) corner played well in press coverage but also peeled off his man and played zone very effectively. By the end of the day, quarterbacks stopped throwing in his direction because they just couldn't complete anything. Expect his recruitment to take off as he's quickly becoming one of the top corners in California.

6. Defensive end/offensive lineman Dejon Allen

One of the few defensive lineman to impress at the event, Allen was very good in one-on-ones and won nearly every repetition. He showed a good initial burst but also good footwork and strength to push around opposing lineman. He also was one of the better offensive lineman when going on that side of the ball but at 6-foot-3, 265 pounds, projects better on the defensive side. He reports offers from Arizona and New Mexico.

Update from the Orlando Elite 11 competition

Posted by Bryan Fischer

ORLANDO, Fla. - The annual ESPN RISE Elite 11 quarterback competition kicked off at Central Florida Saturday morning with several of the top quarterbacks from the state of Florida and elsewhere showing up to display their arms.

One of the top quarterbacks at the event was Plant City (Fla.) signal caller Bennie Coney. Despite having to throw into the wind most of the day, Coney displayed a strong arm and very smooth delivery, throwing a perfect spiral on just about every ball. On top of competing against top flight competition, the senior-to-be came into the day just looking to get better.

"Just basic stuff, footwork, progression and learning how to read the field faster," Coney said. "I felt like I did good, accomplished a lot. "I just felt like I got better overall."

The 6-foot-2, 215 pound quarterback was physically the most impressive looking player at the competition. Already drawing scholarship offers from Auburn, Boston College, Florida State, Michigan and Virginia Tech among others, Coney recently picked up two more from two intriguing programs.

"Cincinnati and USF," he said. "I checked out (Cincinnati's) roster and they're low on quarterbacks. Florida State, LSU, Notre Dame are all good schools too. In the summer I know I'm going to take a lot of unofficial visits."

Coney will not make the short drive over to the Badger Sports 7-on-7 in Tampa this weekend but he is scheduled to attend the Josh Freeman Football Camp in a few weeks.

Other quarterbacks impress

After impressing everyone at the Rutgers Badger Sports 7-on-7, Wayne (N.J.) quarterback Kevin Olsen continued to show why he's in the mix to be the top quarterback in the class of 2013. Displaying a strong arm, he had several very nice looking throws on outs and to the flat. The younger brother of Chicago Bears tight end Greg Olsen, Kevin stood out as one of the few quarterbacks who was a passer and not a thrower at the position.

Miami commit Gray Crow was also one of the better quarterbacks at the event. The Clearwater (Fla.) native displayed a slightly above average arm but was fairly accurate throughout the day. His footworks and mechanics are very sound and the 6-foot-2, 210 pound Crow was easily one of the more polished passers in attendance.

We'll have more on the Orlando Elite 11 competition and the Badger Sports 7-on-7 at USF later today.

Rutgers Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7 Top Players

Posted by Bryan Fischer

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7 started it's 2011 campaign on the campus of Rutgers this past weekend and many of the top prospects from across the Northeast were looking to make an impression over the course of the two-day event.

Here's just a few of the players who stood out from the crowd.

Quarterbacks

Casey Cochran, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, Monroe, Conn. 
One of the top quarterbacks on day one, Cochran was an impressive signal caller. He lacks ideal height but makes up for it with a very strong arm that can make every throw. He has a good release and throws a very pretty, catchable ball to his wide outs. He's ok on the move and can work on his weight transfer and keeping his feet closer together when in the pocket. The ball just jumps out of his hand though and he should be adding to his only offer from Boston College.

Blake Rankin, 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, Bloomsburg, Pa. 
Rankin has ideal size for a pro-style quarterback and had a very nice deep ball, putting just the right amount of touch on most of them. He doesn't have the strongest arm but is very accurate and could develop into a very well-rounded quarterback. He currently has an offer from Rutgers.

Max Ward, 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, Steelton, Pa. 
One of the impressive things about Ward was his tight spiral on just about every ball he threw. A gunslinger, he has a cannon on his shoulder and that makes up for what he might lack in ideal height. He currently has an offer from Akron.

Kevin Olsen, 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Wayne, N.J., class of 2013 
Despite being younger than many of the quarterbacks in the competition, Olsen was near or at the top. He has an excellent frame but needs to add a few pounds to it. He was a little indecisive with some throws but he also had a very quick release and above average footwork. The younger brother of Chicago Bears tight end Greg, several programs are showing interest early on.

David Sills, 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, Bear, Del., class of 2015 
Sills was the big name at the event as the large number of cameras trained on his every drop back would attest. The first thing you notice is his impressive size for just an eighth grader. He had a good understanding of what the defense was doing but still tried to force a few throws. He wasn't as accurate as he has been at other competition but he was maybe the most vocal leader. Seeing him go through an event like this shows why Lane Kiffin offered him a scholarship as a eighth grader.

Brandon Napoleon, 6-foot, 175 pounds, Jersey City, N.J. 
Napoleon is being recruited as an athlete but he was impressive as a quarterback at the event. He threw a nice ball with some zip and a spiral every time. He's light on his feet and can make every throw on the field. Holding double digit offers, Rutgers, Virginia Tech and North Carolina among them.

Ryan Burns, 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, Ashburn, Va., class of 2013 
A big quarterback with a decent drop back, he showed off a very big arm and quick release better than most of the older quarterbacks. His feet get too wide at times which causes him to use almost all arm on some throws. That said, he can throw the ball into any window and already has an offer from Boston College.

Wide receivers

Deontay McManus, 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Baltimore, Md. 
One of the top players at the competition, McManus is being pursued by just about every program in the country. A long-strider when he gets going, McManus is more fast than quick. He displayed some impressive ball skills and attacked the ball in the air, rarely letting anything get by him that was thrown his way. Despite his skills at wide receiver, it wouldn't be too surprising to see him move to safety or even outside linebacker in college. His double digit offer list includes Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and Tennessee among others.

Stefon Diggs, 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, Olney, Md. 
Diggs was easily one of the top receivers in the competition and was explosive everywhere he went. One of the fastest players on the field with great feet that allowed him to turn on a dime, Diggs was very aware of where the defenders were and would slow it down in order to find open spots in zone coverage. An Army All-American Bowl invitee, he has offers from Alabama, Cal, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Notre Dame and others. He said he will likely pick a school outside of the northeast.

Anthony Cooper, 6-foot, 180 pounds, Virginia Beach, Va. 
A speedy wide out on a team full of them, Cooper stood out with his impressive ability to catch and run. He also plays defensive back and had a very nice back pedal and good change of direction. Local programs Virginia and Virginia Tech have already offered.

Romond Deloatch, 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, Hampton, Va. 
Physically the most impressive receiver at the event, Deloatch was a nightmare for opposing defensive backs to cover. He's still a bit raw but displayed quick feet and a good ability to turn on a route quickly. Very fluid while running routes, he's a bit reminiscent of class of 2011 receiver Quinta Funderburk. During one play, he snatched the ball out of a corner's hand on a fade route. He has offers from Florida State, North Carolina and Virginia.

Tight end

Charles Tapper, 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, Baltimore, Md. 
One of the most physically imposing recruits at the event, Tapper didn't play too much. He will likely be a defensive end or outside linebacker in college but he did flash some potential at tight end. He just picked up an offer from Oklahoma and should be receiving more as the weeks go on.

Kalief Joyner, 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Middle Village, N.Y 
More of a receiving tight end in this event and likely at the next level, Joyner has good height and does a solid job of getting off the line. He's not super fast or quick but he does go over the middle and finds spots in zone coverage. He has great hands and several programs are on the verge of offering.

Devin Funchess, 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Farmington Hills, Mich. 
A very tall target, Funchess needs to start packing on the pounds to play tight end. He doesn't have great speed as a receiver but could be very good at tight end with his hands and moves in space. Michigan and Michigan State are among the schools to offer.

Defensive back

Brandon Banks, 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, Brandywine, Md. 
An impressive performance over the weekend from Banks, who might have been the top corner on the field this weekend. A bit skinny, he still wouldn't give up any ground to opposing wide receivers. Fast and smooth, he sinks well when playing in cover-2 and excelled in man coverage. He got to top speed quickly and no receiver was able to create much separation. He currently has an offer from Maryland but should be collecting more soon.

Ronald Darby, 6-foot, 180 pounds, Oak Hill, Md. 
Darby was one of the top players at the event and has seen just about every program send out an offer to him. One of, if not the, fastest players running around the field, he played mostly on defense at safety before eventually playing on both sides of the ball. He was very impressive in coverage with a good backpedal and quick turn to break on the ball. He holds offers from Miami, Florida State, USC, Notre Dame and others and has five-star potential at multiple positions.

Devin Fuller, 6-foot, 185 pounds, Old Tappan, N.J. 
Fuller played on both sides of the ball but stayed mainly in the secondary. He could play a number of positions in college, from quarterback to cornerback to receiver and is being recruited as such. He has very quick feet and reacts well to what is being thrown at him. He was very fluid at cornerback and safety and might be best suited there. He currently has offers from Michigan, Florida State, Maryland, Rutgers and Penn State among others.

Linebacker

Dorian O'Daniel, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, Olney, Md., class of 2013 
A running back and linebacker, O'Daniel looked a tad better playing on defense for the Maryland Speed. He has excellent closing speed but did tend to guess a little bit after his initial drop into coverage. He's very physical and despite being just a sophomore, already holds offers from Maryland, N.C. State, Pitt and Virginia.

Eli Ankou, 6-foot-3, 240 pounds, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada 
Easily the best player at the event from north of the border, Ankou turned a few heads with his size and agility. He was pretty good side-to-side and played on the balls of his feet. His hips are a bit stiff in coverage but he runs well enough to chase faster players down.

Kenny Bigelow, 6-foot-3, 260 pounds, Bear, Del., class of 2013 
He will play defensive end at his size but he came out and competed at linebacker at this event. He was a little too upright and needs to bend at the hips more when standing up but for a young defensive end, did pretty well. At his size, he could develop into a strong side defensive end or slim down and play outside linebacker if needed. He has an offer from Auburn already and is very impressive for a sophomore.

Abner Logan, 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, Salem, Mass. 
One of the best linebackers in coverage, he could be a great fit at outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme. He was a tad stiff at times but he has a great base and is very fluid when moving around. He might be a name that starts to receive offers by the bucketload as the summer progresses based on what he showed over the weekend.

Jazzmar Clax, 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, Freehold, N.J. 
Already on the 2012 All-Name team, Clax looked like a good fit as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. He was above average on his coverage drops and opened his hips nicely to turn and run. He has an offer from Rutgers.
