PA Swag: Top 10 Offense

Quadree Henderson

WEST CHESTER, Pa. -- The PA Swag 7-on-7 hit West Chester University during the weekend, and has its Top 10 on the offensive side off the ball.

The two-day PA Swag 7-on-7 was held at West Chester University, and there were plenty of standout performers. In this segment, takes a look at the top offensive players at the event:

1. Quadree Henderson, WR, Wilmington (Del.) Alexis I. Dupont

Skinny: Henderson was the best player on the field both days. He could not be covered and was so elusive in the open field, defenders had trouble getting a hand on him after the catch. The only thing that kept Henderson from catching every pass was other teammates were open on occasion. His top three is West Virginia, Nebraska and Boston College, and someone will get a dynamic athlete.

2. Aaron Mathews, WR, Clairton (Pa.) High (2016)

Skinny: Mathews stood out from the beginning because of his size, and then his play took it to another level. He tracked the ball well, caught it at its highest point, was quick out of his breaks and a threat all over the field. It's no wonder he has offers from the likes of Pittsburgh and West Virginia, and why Penn State likes him so much. Once he gets a big stronger, look out.

3. Isaiah Esdale, WR, Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian

Skinny: It's simply amazing Esdale has nothing going on when it comes to recruiting because he plays at a school that a lot of college stop by, and he was one of the best players at the event. Esdale caught everything, was precise in his routes, understood how to drive a cornerback out of a play make a quick cut to get open. He needs to get stronger, but he was a treat to watch.

4. Kelvin Harmon, WR, Palmyra (N.J.) High (2016)

Skinny:Harmon first jumped out during a combine in January, and each time performs, there is no disappointment. He ran good routes and again showed above average hands, but what stood out was his willingness to play tough and compete hard. He got behind the defense enough to show his speed, and also show why Rutgers offered him early.

5. Ahmir Mitchell, WR, Egg Harbor City (N.J.) Cedar Creek (2016)

Skinny: It didn't matter whether Mitchell lined up at wide receiver or defensive back: when the sophomore was on the field, everyone knew it. He already made our Top 10 defensive players, and he was also among the top offensive players. He mixed range with physicality, attacked the ball and did a nice job of using his long arms and body to gain separation down the field.

6. Alex Hornibrook, QB, Malvern Prep (Pa.) High

Skinny: Hornibrook, a lefty, was his usual consistent self. He was accurate and repeatedly got past his first read. He didn't fall in love with the deep ball, which most quarterbacks do in a 7-on-7, and he moved his feet well while scanning the field. He showed good arm strength, and he throws from above, which accentuates his 6-foot-4, 205-pound frame. Rutgers offered him Monday, and he also has an Akron offer and several FCS offers.

7. D.J. Moore, WR, Philadelphia Imhotep

Skinny: Moore's quickness off the line of scrimmage and his ability to accelerate out of breaks stood out. He showed good hands and was able to get open across the field and deep. As the tournament wore on, teams starting using a safety over the top. His offer list includes Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Virginia and Wake Forest, and it's easy to see why in the 7-on-7 setting.

8. Travon Williams, WR, Philadelphia Lincoln

Skinny: Williams popped into action only every so often, but when he did, it often ended with a long gain or touchdown. The 2015 Abraham Lincoln pass catcher does not yet have his first offer, but he was shifty and quick in short spaces.

9. Alex Barker, QB, Eastern Christian (2017)

Skinny: The left-handed Barker led the Flash Training down the field to win on the last play of the title game, and he did it with poise and accuracy. He was much better throwing the short passes, but he has the arm strength and the delivery to be a BCS quarterback. He is strong but also moved his feet well. As a lefty, he favored the left side of the field, but his short passes were on the money.

10. Amir Ealey, TE, Coatesville (Pa.) High

Skinny: Ealey showed up late Saturday due to school events, but he quickly showed why colleges up and down the Mid-Atlantic are clamoring for his services. The junior was a physical presence - one of the biggest pass catchers in attendance - and used his body and soft hands to turn something into nothing on more than one occasion. He was a little more quiet Sunday, but had flashes of plays down the field. He moves well for being 6-4, 235, which is why Cincinnati, UConn, Maryland, Rutgers, Syracuse, Virginia and West Virginia each offered.'s Greg Pickel contributed Recommended Stories
