It was certainly a great day in Kent, Washington on Saturday as the Avery Strong NW Stars Football Camp came to town. The 3rd year camp brought almost 35o prospects from around the Pacific NW to the showcase event where 20 colleges showed up to have a close look at some unsigned Seniors and a great group of underclassmen.'
Northwest Prep Report joined Northwest Elite Index in providing camp coverage before and after the event. We completed 42 interviews, 1,287 pictures, and will be covering top performers the next two weeks. We saw some familiar names show up and show out as well as meeting some newcomers who stole the show. All in all the athletes and coaches showed up and laid down a tremendous camp. While is rained all day and was a cool 43 degrees the work got done and many athletes left with contacts and options for their futures.
Here is a look at some names from the first Session of the Camp- RB,LB,OL,DL
NW Stars Camp Delivers Great Experience & Talent - 10 In Focus
Elijah Elliott is a 2020 Rising Star from Jefferson High in Portland, Oregon. He may be young but he was one of the fastest recruits at Camp and most skilled. He is a big time talent on the rise.
Giovanni White shown here on Defense is a D1 recruit from Lincoln HS in Tacoma and at 6'3"- 285 lbs he is a major force. He has two seasons left and will no doubt be a Pac 12 D-Tackle and OG/Center. Gio is one of the best linemen in the Pacific NW in any class and he showed that at Camp.
Tyler Ganoung seen here on the OL is 6'5"-310 lbs and a very solid line prospect. Tyler showed great pass pro technique only losing one battle and he can punish opponents. As he transforms his body he rises up higher. A very good oline prospect for his 2018 Class.
Alexx Schmidt is a 2019 Prospect out of Todd Beamer HS in Washington. This kid blew up at the NW Stars camp showcasing superior strength and ability and a brand of toughness the great ones all have. He is 6'3"- 270 pounds and it appears he is on his way to making a serious case that he is a top line prospect for the future!
Solomon Hines of Kentridge HS showcased blinding speed (4.48 40) and great length and size in the RB session. He has long arms, moves well in space and projects as a big time Athlete. We were impressed with this kid all day long!
Kylan Touch from Aberdeen HS was for sure a top 5 Camper on the day. This young man displayed sick skills at the RB position and came back and totally owned the DB section of camp 3 hours later. He is 5'8" and 175 lbs and so quick. Any college will be very wise to lock down on this kid; he is very special.
Mick Johnson is a 2018 RB/DB from Steilacoom HS (WA) who was on point all day. He has a great stutter step and broke ankles in the drills and showcased serious speed too!
Yousef Koborsi from Liberty High in Hillsboro, Oregon was rolling all camp. The LB / RB was explosive, on point, and tough all day. He may end up as a Safety but there is no doubt he is in the conversation about who is the best in this 2018 Class.
Sage Leigh has played 1 year of HS FB. At 6'5"- 225lbs this long armed Defensive End is a Stud! He has a bright future and dished out some serious trouble for the many top O linemen at the NW Stars Camp. Sage was a break out performer at the Camp!
Carson Shuman of Helena (MT) is 6'4"- and 275 lbs and he came out to make a name and he did just that. This guy is a grinder and he is superbly tough. He had a really nice camp and deserves a look. He is at Capital High.
Look for 10 more standouts from Camp to be mentioned tomorrow right here at NWPR
