After stops in Akron and Ohio State the past two years, New Level Athletics is bringing their Midwest 7v7 Passing Camp to the University of Pittsburgh this weekend. There will be plenty of talent on hand and Scout.com the industry leader in recruiting coverage will be on hand covering the event.
Here is a preview of the wide receivers that will display their skills at this event. Who will shine the brightest one of these known commodities or will an unknown newcomer rise up and steal the spotlight?
Steel City Starz (Yellow) will look to get the ball into the hands of McKees Rocks/Pa./Sto-Rox playmaker Marzett Geter. "Boo" is one of the most talented players in the WPIAL with the ball in his hands. He lacks ideal size, but a strong showing here could lead to big things for Geter. Steel City Starz (Black) will feature talented sophomore Adam Breneman from Camp Hill/Pa./Cedar Cliff. At 6-foot-5 and 220-pounds, Breneman could grow into a tight end. The Small Ball team will likely try to feature the exploits of Greensburg/Pa./Central Catholic standout Justin Kempka.
Western PA Swag I features a ton of offensive firepower including arguably the top underclassman in the WPIAL Robert Foster. Foster is a very talented wide receiver from Monaca/Pa./Central Valley. Clairton/Pa. speed merchant Trenton Coles holds an offer from Pittsburgh. Industry/Pa./Western Beaver standout Dustin Creel is one of the best kept secrets in Western Pennsylvania. Perhaps, the best kept secret in the state and top playmaker in this event may be Pittsburgh/Pa./Penn Hills prospect Corey Jones. This tournament could go a long way in helping him pick up some well deserved offers. When healthy Chartiers Valley athlete Wayne Capers Jr. is among the best players in the state.
Western PA Swag II will also field some talented playmakers on offense. Clairton/Pa. speed merchant Tyler Boyd may not get the attention that his teammate Coles gets, but some think Boyd could be better. New Castle/Pa. athlete Justin Fleo can do a little bit of everything and it wouldn't be surprising to see him line-up at a number of positions this weekend. When it comes to possession receivers McDonald/Pa./South Fayette Zach Challingsworth will give everyone a run for their money.
The Goon Squad will look to get the ball in to the hands of South Bend/Ind./Washington wide receiver Gehrig Dieter. The 6-3, 210-pound, two-way standout holds offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan. The playmaker for the Goon Squad is Charlotte/N.C./Phillip O Berry Academy four-star Clemson commit Germone Hopper. Hopper is a running back by nature, but projects as a wide receiver in college. We are also hearing that South Allegheny/Pa. tight end and Penn State commit Jesse James may also play for the Goon Squad. The Max Ex Blitz team from Michigan will feature a talented quartet at receiver including Dennis Norfleet, Ron Thompson, Tyree Monroe and Terry Richardson. Norfleet will likely play running back, he holds offers from Cincinnati, Michigan State and Tennessee. Thompson is a four-star tight end with offers from Michigan, Bowling Green, Indiana, Syracuse and Toledo. Richardson a four-star cornerback can excel on either side of the ball and he holds double-digit offers from schools all across the nation.
The Virginia teams features a number of talented receivers including Eli Harold who holds a number of offers, including Penn State. He is also a very talented defensive end who projects as an outside linebacker. Cooper holds offers from Western Michigan, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Richmond. Maryland Flex features under-the-radar receiver Tyrone TeMoney. TeMoney from Greenbelt/Md./Eleanor Roosevelt had a very good showing at Rutgers. Duval/Md. Tight end Daniel Nwosu is a little undersized, but he also had a strong event at Rutgers. The Maryland Dream Team will try to get the ball into the hands of Calvert Hall cornerback/wide receiver Daquan Davis who holds a West Virginia offer or Baltimore/Md./Dunbar standout Deontay McManus who holds double-digit offers. One underclassman to keep an eye on will be Bowie/Md. 2014 prospect Chigozie Onyekwere.
Michigan Preps I will try to get the ball to Shane Barron who holds an offer from Central Michigan. The PA Playmakers feature two under-the-radar players who blew up at the Rutgers event Mike Burke and Will McLaughlin. The New York squad boosts talented Rochester native Marcus McGill. The Renegades team will feature New Jersey standout Elijah Hughes and Kyle LaPorte.
