New Level Athletics will be bringing the Badger Sports 7v7 Passing Camp to the UPMC Indoor Facility this weekend and will have plenty of coverage of the event.

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 the industry leader in recruiting coverage will be on hand covering the event.

Here is a preview of the linebackers 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 (Black) will be led by a pair of hard-nosed run stuffing backers Corey Garry and Mike Shinsky, of course in 7v7 you have to be able to cover, so we’ll see if these guys can make that adjustment. Western PA Swag I has a talented corp of linebackers led by Pittsburgh/Pa./Peabody standout Jaylen Coleman who holds offers from Pittsburgh and Toledo. Coraopolis/Pa./Cornell athlete B.J. Lipke is one of the most under-rated pass rushers in the state and he can play linebacker or wide receiver. Pittsburgh/Pa./Upper Saint Clair athlete Dakota Conwell is as smooth as any linebacker we’ll see in this event, why he has no offers is beyond me. Also keep an eye out for 2013 stud linebacker Delton Williams from Erie/Pa./Cathedral Prep.Western PA Swag II will have two-way standout Joell Nesbit, Nesbit can play running back or linebacker. The Pittsburgh/Pa./Brashear standout is still waiting on his first offer.<p>

The Goon Squad managed to lure four-star outside linebacker Deaysean Rippy away from his Western Pennsylvania roots. The McKees Rocks/Pa./Sto-Rox athlete should have a chip on his shoulder after some things a local newspaper said about him recently. Team Canada will feature Eli Ankou. Ankou was very impressive at the Rutgers 7v7 event. Max Ex Blitz will be led by Detroit/Mich./Cass Tech four-star Royce Jenkins-Stone, who has offers from everyone.

Leading the Michigan Preps I team will be Lathrup Village/Mich./Southfield-Lathrup outside linebacker Jamal Lyles who holds offers from Illinois, Toledo and Western Michigan. Muskegon/Mich. Running back Juwan Lewis, who holds an offer from Western Michigan may also share time at linebacker.
