LAS VEGAS – This weekend, the ESPN 300 Elite Underclassmen Camp tour heads to Sin City for another long-awaited stop at Bishop Gorman High School.
The list of expected participants is headed by the Top247 prospectus quartet.
Outside Linebacker Blake Purchase from Englewood, Colorado, Cherry Creek is in the midst of an exciting recruiting season ahead of summer, with representatives from Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Oregon and Washington coming on official visits next month. The purchase is ranked 32nd in the nation and 2nd in prospects in the state of Colorado in the class of 2023, according to the industry’s 247Sports Composite rankings.
The roster also includes a couple of talented players who are already in the top 100 in the class of 2024 – wide receiver. David Washington from Las Vegas (Nevada) Arbor View and quarterback Isaac Wilson Draper (Utah) Corner Canyon.
Washington has crossed the 20 offer mark in recent weeks and used to be the top player in this camp, showing off his ball handling skills, trail running and competitiveness in one-on-one battles.
Meanwhile, Wilson has his own momentum. He’s been winning a couple of 7v7 tournaments over the past couple of months and has been attracting interest from coaches all over the country. The brother of New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson is looking to develop his own resume ahead of a season in which he will take the reins after stellar performances in Jackson Dart (Ole Miss) and Devin Brown (Ohio) in Corner Canyon over the past two years.
Isaiah Rubin, four-star cornerback from Las Vegas, Nevada Desert Pines, is a physical and athletic quarterback who has excelled in hitting coverage at the event in the past. He is one of the top defensive prospects in the West in the class of 2024.
Seuseu AlofaituliAndre Burton, Georgy Dragovich, Ed HaynesPeyton Nobel, Logan Powellxander Ruggeroli, Douglas Utu are one of the notable characters of three different classes in the offensive line group. Among the linebackers who are expected to test them in always energetic one-on-one battles, Zurich AshfordIdgerrin Dean, Gavin Geveniger and Tyson Simmons.
Ty Brown, Quincy Davis, Principles, John Leaa, Jami Otis and Kahekili Paaoao lead a very good group of midfielders while Dajon Hinton and Jeremiah Wessel are two defensemen from Arizona State who are heading into the tournament with recent momentum after solid performances this spring.
In the quarterback stable, we expect Wilson to be surrounded by the likes of Mika Away, David Rasor, Brady McDonough and Beckem CritzaClass of 2025 graduate from Colorado State, who came to the attention of recruiting during the evaluation period this spring.
Zedekiah Anahu-Ambrosio, Landon Bell and Tavian McNair will be among the pass catchers who want to get their shots.
