Top performers from the Under Armour All-America Camp in Atlanta
CARROLTON, Georgia. More than 150 recruits from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and other nearby states took part in the first stop of the Under Armor All-American Camp Series on Sunday as the tour kicked off outside of Atlanta. 247Sports has top performers and others below.
ALPHA DOG: David SandersOT, Charlotte (NC) Providence Day School Class of 2025
You only need one word to describe Sanders: traits. 247Sports’ No. 1 prospect in the 2025 class won part of Sunday’s camp measurements when he showed up with 36-inch arms and a nearly 7-foot wingspan. He then continued with fast positional drills before winning two one-on-one reps against Alabama commit Sterling (who turned out to be one of the best pass rushers in the room). Sanders is lean and light right now, but that’s completely normal because he moves his legs like lightning and is able to recover and strengthen like few others with his height and reach. Sanders, who has only played offensive offense for a few years, will eventually need to add some power and fill in the bottom half, but it was an extremely encouraging outing after a sophomore campaign in which he defended a blue-chip corner. quarterback Jayden Davis. He hopes to visit Alabama, Ohio, South Carolina, Georgia and other countries in the coming months.
THE FOLLOWING FIVE OFFENSES
–Ryan WilliamsWR, Saraland, Alabama, Class of 2025: On Sunday, Williams made it look easy. He threw perhaps a dozen or so touchdowns and made short work of any defender who lined up opposite him. In fact, the only defender that seemed to give him a lot of trouble was his boots, as one of them came off mid-replay. Williams, who was named Mr. Football in Alabama in his sophomore year, is a smooth trail runner with a huge catch radius. He’ll be a problem on Saturdays.
–Michael SmithTE, Savannah (Georgia), Calvary Day School, South Carolina, commits: It was a pretty talented group of tight ends and Smith was the one who made the most noise when 1v1 matches started as he was constantly opening up and catching pretty much anything that was in his area code. Commitment Gamecocks may not be the tallest man, but his ability to create a lead at the top of the route tree with his speed in short sections is extremely promising. Smith found the end zone 12 times last season.
–Air NolandQB, Fairburn (GA) Langston Hughes: Perhaps there was no hotter hand in America right now than Noland, and it was pretty easy to see why. The southpaw has thrown several dimes in 1-on-1 matches and has thrown the ball quickly during positional work thanks to his instant shot. This performance earned Noland an invitation to the Under Armor All-American Game. It will also likely lift him up in our rankings as he could be the best southpaw we’ve seen since Tua Tagavolia.
–Cameron ColemanWR, Phoenix City (AL) Central: Coleman was an instant eye-catcher during testing as it has a lanky frame that appears to push 6ft 3in. Obviously this type of size is notable, especially for someone who is likely to be deployed on the perimeter, but we were just as impressed with how he stacked the defensive backs and was able to get upright on the outside throughout the first round. – in 1 session. Coleman was also quite competitive at the interception point, which is very important.
–Max LeBlancTE, Chattanooga (Tensylvania) Baylor School: We have already noted that this was a deeper group of tight ends and Leblanc was another big body that showed some mobility as a route runner. He drew attention during a simulated bouncing ball exercise where he demonstrated excellent body control and was able to perform several acrobatic stunts relatively routinely. Stock up on a Canadian native who is somewhat similar to another Canadian, current Penn State tight end Theo Johnson.
THE FOLLOWING FIVE PROTECTIONS
–Jordan RossEDGE, Birmingham (AL) Vestavia Hills: Ross made a lot of noise in the early morning hours when the camp organizers reported that his results were beyond praise. We’ll see what the numbers actually turn out to be, but in terms of height and speed, Ross looked the part with his initial burst and long limbs as he maneuvered around the bags. He then did a couple of solid reps against Daniel Calhoun in a Top247 offense. If Ross, who plays basketball this winter, can bulk up, he’ll be fit on Saturdays.
–Jamonta WallerEDGE, Picayune (Miss) Picayune Memorial: Waller entered the Top 247 earlier this month after Washington quarterback Austin Mack was reclassified. We feel even better about the decision to move him up the rankings after watching him practice on Sunday. Waller is a bit of a brat (he’s under 6ft 3in), but not many have the quick wit that he has on the edge. Not many can change direction like him. Once the one-on-one meetings began, Waller was able to cross several blockers.
–Sterling DixonEDGE, Mobile (Alabama) Mobile Christian School, Alabama is committed to: Dixon, like Waller, is a forward seven defender with some positional ambiguity that is not without twitch. On one of his 1-on-1 reps, he earned a free throw, and on several others he hit what would have been the quarterback in the face. Dickson, MVP of the day for the defensive line, showed not only the ability to dive and go around the corner, but also to win with his hands. His lateral movement patterns also suggest that he could be useful for covering if needed.
–Your MetcalfeDB, Pinson (Alabama) Pinson Valley: Metcalfe was the most valuable player in the defensive group. He shone in the weaving routine and then made one of the few shots of the day when he ran out and secured an interception. Speed and quickness have been Metcalfe’s sticking points in the past, but on Sunday he showed he could get over obstacles and hit the ball. Metcalfe’s older brother, T.J., signed with Arkansas last season. He is also associated with D.C. Metcalfe.
–Fountain CameraDL, Atlanta Booker T. Washington: Fountain entered Sunday unranked by 247Sports, but it won’t take long as he has a lineup of potential difference-maker ahead at the Power Five level. The rising senior attacked the bags with some power as he shifted his weight well and used his long leverage to rip apart would-be blockers. The fountain will need a lot of polishing, but it can be worth the investment. After all, there are not so many pass-rushers dunk like him.
MORE ABOUT THE OBJECT
–Other MVPs awarded by UA staff (which included several former NFL players) working in the camp: 2026 QB Julian LewisRB Jeremy Gavin Hill, 2026 WR Devin Carter (son of the great ex-USSR Dexter Carter), OLs Kalil House/2025 Isaac Sowells and L.B. Montez Smith.
— Lewis and Jake Merklinger there were two other quarterbacks who had chances on Sunday. The same goes for the Georgia Tech fix. Jahari Williamswho has an athletic build and throws well on the move.
Hill was one of the most dynamic runners in the group of runners. fss commit Cameron Davis, Kanen Daniels, Mika Welch, Anthony Rogers, Chris Davis And Akylin Dear were some of our other favorite 1-on-1 runners.
– Mike Matthews (#1 on 247Sports) worked wide receiver and went deep a few times. LSU fixation Joseph Stone, Braylon Burnside, Camron Mikell and Isaiah Mitchell had strong days in 2025 too.
– When it came to tight ends, Kaylan FoxJordan White and Cameron Sparks (Athlete No. 1 in 2025) all caused problems for defenders.
– By far the biggest man in the room was the tackle. Jacob McRoywho looks like he’s lost some weight. He matches his 6ft 8in height and 365lb weight and doesn’t resist as one might think when asked to get east or west.
–Daniel CalhounDuke commits Bradley Smith2025 Mason Short2025 Nicholas Brooks2025 Juan Gaston and 2025 Braden Jacobs (son of former NFL running back Brandon Jacobs) there were other offensive linemen who impressed with either practice or heads-up play.
“All the top five spots in defense could have gone to the linebackers, but we wanted to distribute the wealth a bit. At the same time, Georgia 2025 is committed to Justus Terry this is the real deal. Same with Jeremiah Beeman and 2025 Jared Smith. Geoffrey Rush2025 Jurdin Crawford and 2025 Kevin Oatis (nothing to do with Jaheim Oatis of Alabama) there were a few other A’s in the trenches.
It wasn’t exactly his setting, but Bradley Shaw did some good things in coverage as a linebacker. Also Tristan Jerniganwhich begins to collect Power Five tenders.
– There were noticeable absences from the defenders. However, Auburn commits A’Mon Lane made himself known during one-on-one meetings, as did Georgia Sakovi WhiteOhio State 2025 Yonte Gilbert, Daniel James, Jacob Boyes And Naim Offord.
