Fasten your seat-belts as I take you on a tour around the country highlighting some of the Class of 2022 top Offensive skill players in the nation. While some may not agree with spotlighting kids at a certain age, I beg to differ it’s always huge for kids to have a digital foot print from their childhood achievements. A digital foot print goes a long way in validating some prospects history of being one of the most talented players in their age group or region. With that being said it’s now time to get into some of the cream of the crop in the class of 2022 which has no shortage of big-time ball carriers.

 

 

Class of 2022 Watchlist

 

Name: Jeremiah Connelly

Height: 5’4

Weight: 117

Position: Ath

Team: Orlando Outlaws 12u

                                                           

The Skinny:

 

If your ever in the Central Florida area treat yourself to an Orlando Outlaws game, why you ask? That’s easy two words for you Jeremiah Connelly and I guarantee you won’t leave disappointed. A lot of times when you hear about a kid scoring over 50 touchdowns in a season you question the level of competition. But Connelly can be a playmaking receiver who shows great ability after the catch. He uses his speed vs. man coverage and his great vision to find soft spots in zone coverage. Does a great job of making the catch, getting up field, and making people miss. Connelly is a home run threat every time he touches the ball with his speed and elusiveness. As for the competition, this kid has shown in Fbu & scoring 2 touchdowns versus the 1# ranked 12u team in the nation the Ft. Lauderdale Hurricanes, who only gave up 4 touchdowns the entire year guess who scored two of the touchdowns? You guessed it Connelly, who shows no matter the stage he shows up in a big way when his number is called.

 

 

 

Name: Glenn Rice Jr.

Height: 5”9

Weight: 140

Position: Qb

Team: SGP Rams

 

                                                    

The Skinny:

Not to be confused with the Basketball player this class of 2022 Quarterback Glenn Rice made a name for himself around the country with his Fbu National Championship run. Glenn Rice Jr. is one of the elite quarterbacks in this class and has the tools to be a big-time player at the position at the High School level. Rice is a good, not far from being dynamic, athlete at the position that runs well.  Rice has solid footwork and is light on his feet in the pocket. He has a quick release and shows an above average arm on intermediate and deep throws. The football comes out tight the majority of the time. He also shows nice touch when needed, especially on the deep ball. One very encouraging thing is how he handled throws under pressure. He wasn’t afraid to deliver the football and showed enough natural arm strength to still get the ball to where it needed to be even if he was unable to step into the throw properly. I loved seeing his ball placement on short throws. He put the football exactly where his receivers could do damage after the catch. Overall his ball placement was very good. With the way, this kid tore thru the Fbu Tournament & his elite skill set safe to say the odds are in this young man favor to be a highly sought after signal caller in the near future.

 

 

Name: Demarieon Young

Height: 5’9

Weight: 150

Position: Ath

Team: Moreno Valley Falcons

 

                                                    

The Skinny:

 

Demarieon a home-run hitting sprinter with insanely long strides due to the tremendous power and flexibility he has in the hip girdle. All he needs is a sliver of daylight and he's off to the races. Demarieon is special in the open field. He's simply too big and fast for the typical 12u youth football secondary to contain once he hits full speed. The thing that stands out about Young is his burst. It looks like he is just getting going then whoosh, he’s running away from people for six. He’s a slasher who is at his best when he’s a one cut and go runner that hits the h*** at top speed. Not to be forgotten is this kids impact in the passing game a pure hands catcher who effortlessly snatches the ball out of the air. Is able to make the tough catch in traffic and turns into a threat the second he secures the ball. Will be a major threat catching the ball out of the backfield & out wide in the screen game or on basic routes. It’s too early to predict what position this kid will end up at but rest assure he has talent to excel in several different positions simply because he is that talented.

 

Name: De’Nylon Morrissette

Height: 6’1

Weight: 165

Position: WR

Team: Central Dekalb Jaguars

 

                                          

The Skinny:

 

Morrissette has great size. He is physically ready to compete right now and is a mismatch with just about any corner in one on one coverage. He shows just enough speed to separate for a guy his size as well. Most big guys can’t move like he does. He doesn’t have explosive short area burst, but it’s solid. He’s much more than a big body and is a plus athlete with very good lateral agility. He is a big receiver and plays big. He has speed to and power to do serious damage on every touch. Very strong at catching contested balls. Will go up and high point the football and has improved at snatching the ball away from his body. Shows great body control when in the air and has good awareness of the sideline and keeping inbounds. He’s a solid route runner that shows good burst out of his breaks and will use subtle fakes to gain separation. As young as this prospect is he hasn’t begin to tap into his potential which means when his game catches up to his body you are most likely looking at a 5 star recruit down the line.

 

 Name: Myzel Miller

Height: 5’’8

Weight: 161

Position: Rb

Team: San Antonio Outlaws

 

                                                 

The Skinny:

 

The tv star from Friday night tykes is a physical specimen he has the size of someone who can carry the ball over twenty times a game, but why carry it 20 times when this phenom can crib it in a matter of a couple seconds yes, he is that explosive. He has breakaway speed and very good agility. It’s the little things that add up to make Miller an exciting running back prospect. He is very slippery and seems to maneuver his way out of crowded areas to bust out for big gains. When he is boxed in, he does a great job of fighting for every yard and is tough to tackle one on one. Miller’s greatest strength though is his vision. He sets up blocks and sets up defensive backs who take bad angles to turn what should be a smaller gain into a touchdown. I love his instincts with the ball in his hands. Miller reminds me a lot of Lasean McCoy as a runner. He has top end speed, also the rest of his skills make him a big time back with the potential to break long plays. He’s got the potential to be an elite running back on the High School level.

 

Name: Mike Barnes

Height: 5”9

Weight: 173

Position: Ath

Team: Fort Lauderdale Hurricanes

 

                                                     

The Skinny:

 

The talent may be raw at times, but Mike Barnes can beat you in a variety of ways. The 5'9", 173-pound playmaker is oozing with athleticism and displays true top-level speed, so it's no surprise he can compete with anybody in the country. Questions about his ideal high school position put Barnes into the "athlete" category. Barnes quickly gives the impression that he has always been the most impressive athletic specimen to step on the playing field among his peers. He glides past players who would be deemed quick themselves and he does so with an extra two to three inches on his frame. Barnes has proven he can adjust at the end of a route. His athleticism and improvisation make him a dangerous target when a play breaks down. Defensively, Barnes lines up all over the place. His blend of height and quickness make him a rare commodity on the youth level so he spends time at Linebacker and safety during the course of a game. He is excellent in the secondary. Barnes is impressive in coverage and can cover the entire side of the field, He has returned several interceptions for touchdowns during the season baiting quarterbacks. Barnes versatility makes him an intriguing option on defense, where safety makes the most sense. With Mike physical attributes and versatility, he can’t go wrong on either side of the ball this kid is that good.

 

 

Name: Chad Mascoe II

Height: 6”0

Weight: 180

Position: QB

Team: McIntyre Park Bulldogs

 

                                          

The Skinny:

 

You would be hard pressed to find any youth football player in history as accomplished as Chad Mascoe Jr. his resume speaks for itself. Let’s just touch on his most recent achievement Fbu National Champion and Mvp, Chad made the Fbu Tournament his personal playground on the ground and thru the air. 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 with ease. Mascoe has solid mechanics. Has a good release and good arm strength. He is balanced in the pocket and throws an accurate deep ball. This young phenom had no issues going through his progressions and finding his second & third reads. And whenever the pocket broke down this kid stayed composed and poised finding his receivers running free because he had a knack for knowing when to pull it down and when to stay in the pocket. Mascoe looks great as a runner. He reads his blocks well and knows when to turn it up and run. That is what enables him to be a big play threat with his feet just as much as his speed. Chad Mascoe has earned the 1# spot as the top prospect in the country in the Class of 2022….

 

 Name: Isaiah Broadway

Height: 5’11

Weight: 175

Position: RB/ATH

Team: Carrollton Steelers

 

                                        

The Skinny:

 

There's plenty to appreciate about the way Broadway competes. He's invested in executing his role on every play, regardless of whether or not he's taking a handoff. He attacks defenders at full throttle, contributing as a capable blocker and dangerous diversion out of the backfield. Of course, the spotlight really shines when Broadway has the football. The primary element of his rushing approach is power, and it stands out immediately. Broadway maintains a low base and swiftly accelerates, gaining forward momentum in a hurry. By the time, he's advanced beyond the line of scrimmage, tacklers have a tough time halting his progress. Broadway has a powerful lower body, which enables him to churn through defenders and rumble out of the ruckus. His vision is outstanding, guiding Broadway through rushing lanes at every level of an opposing defense. The patience he exhibits while allowing blocks to develop downfield is an asset that's predominately instinctive and often sets consistently great running backs apart from the pack. Yet another player who name will ring bells based on his outstanding play versus some elite competition, Broadway can easily grow out of the RB position good thing he is football player not define by a position.

 

Name: Deandre Moore Jr.

Height: 5’9

Weight: 140

Position: WR

Team: Cerritos Steelers

                                    

The Skinny:

 

The very first thing that really makes Moore stand out is that he is a burner. He’s a long strider who eats up a lot of ground and if he gets a crease, he’s gone. I also really like his agility and his cutting ability. Like most receivers at the youth level, he’s not asked to run a variety of routes. It’s pretty much slant, hitch, or go for Moore. But for right now, he does a solid job catching the ball with his hands and has the ability to take it to house running any of the three routes he primarily runs. I love that Moore never settles for what he gets. He wants to get six with every catch. Moore is a dynamic kick returner as well. My lasting impression on this kid is he leaves it all on the field and gives 110% on every play and plays with an edge with tons of passion.

 

Name: James Smiley

Height: 5’7

Weight: 188

Position: RB

Team: Westchase Colts

                                    

The Skinny:

 

Like most big backs, Smiley is no burner. He’s got above average speed but enough to take it the distance and I do like his feet quite a bit. His greatest asset though is his size and strength carrying the football. He is a big back and plays like one as well. Smiley runs with authority. He’s a good inside runner that consistently runs through arm tackles. When he gets into the open field, his feet are surprisingly nimbler than most would expect from a player his size. For the most part, I think he’s got good instincts running with the ball. There are some plays where he, correctly, bounces outside for big gains and it’s nice to see he’s capable of getting more than what appears to be there. James Smiley is Tampa’s finest and also one of the nation’s best which he proves any time he is among the elite, wouldn’t be wise to get in front of this Mac truck because he goes hard.

 

 

Name: Theodore Sherrod

Height: 6’1

Weight: 141

Position: WR

Team: Virginia Cavaliers

                                    

The Skinny:

 

Sherrod looks a little thin right now, but he has plenty of time to add weight to his frame. I don’t think there is a question with his overall speed. He has good long speed, but doesn’t have explosive quickness. While Sherrod might not be explosive, there are other things he does very well to make up for it. He’s a very good route runner and knows how to set up defensive backs to get open. He does a good job against press coverage and creating separation with subtle movement. He’s got outstanding hands and really shows up catching the ball in traffic. Not afraid to take a hit to make a play. Has deceptive long speed. If he gets a step, he can run by people. Sherrod does so many small things really well, which is what separates him from the rest of the pack in the class of 2022.

 

 Name: Jordan Crook

Height: 5”10

Weight: 175

Position: RB/ATH

Team: SGP Rams

                               

The Skinny:

 

Crook is considered a giant running back at 175 pounds on the youth level, yet he doesn't appear overweight at all. Some have questioned his ability to stick at running back, because Crooks is also a outstanding Lb but Crook seems like he is still growing, which is good for his future at either position. Crook is a runner with a great stiff-arm, keeping defenders at bay. And he can run with excellent power and balance, driving his legs and keeping his feet through contact. But power is not the only part of his game. Crook has very good top-end speed for a prospect of his size, and he flashes some good change-of-direction as well at times. He shows the ability to put his foot in the ground and explode up field, and shows good vision. Crook is a very good running back who is capable of carrying the load or flipping to the defensive side of the ball and wreaking havoc in passing lanes destroying ball carriers showing why he is considered elite prospect in the class of 2022.

 

 

Name: Dylan Turner

Height: 5”7

Weight: 149

Position: RB

Team: Sarasota Seminoles

          

The Skinny:

 

Meet the Pal Elite Juniors Heisman Trophy winner Dylan Turner who has never seen an angle he can’t out run let’s just say he is lightening in a bottle. He's slight and shifty, far more comfortable running outside the tackles than pounding out six-yard gains in the middle of the field. Right now, he's more of a ridiculously fast player who happens to have a predilection toward embarrassing people with the ball in his hands. If you give the ball to this kid in the open field, good, explosive things are going to happen. Tuner is electric as a playmaker. He's a smart, elusive open-field runner with the type of second burst that makes it nearly impossible to catch him after he gets a step. It's not hard to look at Turner in the open field and see flashes of De'Anthony Thomas. He’s a tougher inside runner than you would assume based on his size. He’s not running people over, but is slippery and will fight for extra yards. You would have to admit watching this kid play that numbers don’t lie and you will begin to see how he accounted for more than 30 touchdowns on the year speed, speed & more speed.

 

 

 

Name: Kamron Singleton

Height: 5”7

Weight: 135

Position: Wr

Team: Desoto Dolphins

                             

The Skinny:

 

Kamron Singleton would not really look the part if he stood next to some of the other monster receivers that he would be compared to. But there is no denying how athletically gifted he is when watching him. Singleton shows he can beat press coverage and uses his hands well at the line. He has the speed to get behind defensive backs. He’s extremely slippery in the open field and has a great burst after the catch. It might not be indicative by his size, but he has great potential as a red zone target. He has great body control and will go up and get the football at its highest point. He flashes great hands and can make spectacular catches. He is simply an athletically superior player that is really tough for defensive backs to cover. He is a threat to make a big play on short routes and can turn reverses into big chunk plays. He has also shown some ability in the return game as well. This young fella is relentless when it comes to getting it done and he won’t allow anyone to keep him from what he has insight, which happens to be the red zone which he frequently visits when he is in his zone.

 

 

 

Name: Jai Ayviaynn-Celestine

Height: 5”7

Weight: 150

Position: RB/ATH

Team: Goulds Rams

                            

The Skinny:

 

Celestine has good, but not elite, speed. He does have really great feet and balance though to go with outstanding lateral agility. He does not have great size right now, but plays way bigger than his weight would indicate. Celestine is more of a combo back with a unique blend of speed & power. He is a very good inside runner that can break tackles. He is always falling forward and fighting for extra yards. If defenders don’t wrap up, he will run right through arm tackles in route to 6 points. His feet help him make defenders miss. He is able to make subtle cuts to gain extra yards. So many running backs have the luxury of running through gigantic holes in youth football and there isn’t any indication of how they will perform when they are asked to run through contact. That is not the case with Celestine. He already shows an advanced ability to run physically and that is really going to help him at the next level. Ask any spectator of Fbu national about this kid and I’ll bet the house they stamp him as certified baller.

 

Name: Freddie Manning

Height: 5”6

Weight: 135

Position: Wr

Team: Forestview Steelers

                                  

The Skinny:

 

He’s back!, one of the top wide receiver prospects in the Class of 2022.  A gifted athlete with high-end playmaking ability and a past history of being a bigtime player in bigtime games. It's easy to see why he's also a threat on special teams. Get him the ball in space and he can make people miss. Once there's a lane, there aren't many players who can chase him down. Given his hard work on route running, along with his understanding of basic coverage's, it doesn’t surprise me his growth all in a years’ time Freddie Manning made headlines in Pop Warner Nationals over a year ago, making play after play almost leading his team to a National Championship. It appears this kid is back healthy and hungry as ever and ready to make a case for being one of the top receivers in the country and he is well on his way to proving that. 

 

 

 

 

Name: Savion Red

Height: 5”8

Weight: 155

Position: WR

Team: SGP Rams

                          

The Skinny:

 

Everyone wants the ideal in terms of body type for football players, but there are always exceptions that don’t fit the mold. Savion Red fits into that category. His dynamic athleticism helps him shine even though he doesn’t have ideal size. When lined up in the slot, teams should think twice about matching up a safety with him. He can blow right past a lot of players on straight go routes and can embarrass them on double moves. He does get away with some rudimentary route running at the youth football level. He definitely has the quickness to be very good in this area, but can just run by inferior athletes in youth football. He’s a natural hands catcher and will never let the ball gets to his chest. He needs no improvement in the hands department seeing as he makes some pretty acrobatic catches effortlessly, so he’ll have no problem making more contested catches at the next level. With his consistent showing of strong hands, he has the chance to be a big play threat for multiple seasons at the next level.

 

 

Name: Ja”Randy Swint

Height: 5”7

Weight: 160

Position: RB

Team: Osceola Panthers

                                   

The Skinny:

 

Swint isn’t the biggest back, but runs bigger than his size. He has great burst and can kick it into another gear with his speed. He has very good lateral agility. Swint is a good inside runner that has a lot more power than you would think. His ability to get skinny through small creases and keep his balance after contact is very good. He also does nice job of reading off the iso block. He has the ability to turn what should be three yard gains into first downs. He can make defenders miss and can cut and explode to gain maximum yardage. If he has space, he can be gone for six. He has the speed to outrun defenders who have the angle on him and has great vision at the second level. He can line up all over the field and be effective whether it’s out of the I-formation, as a single back, or out of the slot on jet sweep type of plays. Swint has the potential to be a dynamic playmaker at the next level and the tools to develop into one of the top backs in the Class of 2022, so watch out for this star on the rise.

 

 

Name: Ghana Oboh

Height: 5”9

Weight: 158

Position: Ath

Team: Ives Estate Thunder

                         

The Skinny:

 

Oboh is an explosive athlete with great speed. He needs to fill out and add weight, but has plenty of time to do so. His acceleration is outstanding. Oboh has great ball skills that are great on either side of the ball. As a receiver, he shows great burst out of his breaks to create separation and has the speed to run away from people. He’s got good skills after the catch and is someone who is also lethal in the backfield, he could easily take a handoff or reverses/jet sweeps to the promise land. On defense, he takes aggressive angles and tackles through ball carriers. Is more physical than I expected for his size. He’s a very good open field tackler. He can erase mistakes and make up for false steps with his speed. If he gets a little cleaner in his transitions, then he’ll make an even bigger impact breaking up passes. He plays safety for his Ives Estate Thunder 13u, but I’d like to see him at corner more to see him in man coverage situations. Also, has skills as a returner and can make an impact in that area of the game. I love Oboh potential and think he may ultimately end up being one of the top players in this recruiting class regardless of position. I’m excited to see his improvement on year to year basis.
