Thank You again to Coach Hoff for letting me stop by again Saturday in Schaumburg. World class organization with great coaches that put the kids first. Always have been impressed with Top Gun 7on7 and their ability to help groom these great young men to be better on and off the field. Great number of talented players crafting their game were featured in the gym Saturday. Below are my comments on some of the QBs/WRs/ATHs from the workouts today. Will be at the Top Gun 7on7 invitational in March and can't wait. College Coaches if you need any more info, you got my number/email feel free to request my info and full notes.
*NOTE: I'm hoping I got the names right. Little tough when you are taking notes on your phone.
Players To Look Out For From Top Gun 7on7 Practice 2/26/22
Players that impressed with their workout today and HUDL film
Michael Jefferson Jr. Grayslake North DB Class Of 2023HUDLTWITTER
Michael again proved to me today why he is one of the best defensive backs in the state of Illinois. His overall athleticism and a hip tracing are impressive on the receivers. Will be a huge recruit this summer camp season to lookout for and also going into the 7on7 season. Going shock the recruiting world in these coming months when college coaches work on their senior board.
Welp... Ethan was catching everything that was thrown his way this afternoon. Made some remarkable catches and this Barb WR will be a big-time recruit once we get into the Spring. Ethan has wonderful hands and a great ability to catch the ball and will be huge with the DeKalb offense. Ethan has been unbelievable this whole Winter and made a huge name for him. Ethan biggest trait is that the kid never gives up on his routes and commits to his position.
Tyler has been on the mark since spring 2021. Multi-faceted QB that we should be talking about. His overall mobility and playmaking on the fly are what makes Tyler a special QB in the state of Illinois. Already my watchlist QB that you need to know about but will be overlooked because of his size. One of the very few QBs that is patient with his decision making and doesn't fret under pressure.
Name to watch out for in the state of Illinois. Again, another young athlete that comes from this SEHS offense that you need to keep eyes out for this upcoming season. His ability to play both sides of the ball is what makes him dynamic and recruit to watch. Watch out for Mr. Corbin in these coming 2 years on varsity. Can't wait to see his growth this Summer going to Fall.
Frankie Riccardi Niles Norte Dame RB/ATH Class Of 2023HUDLTWITTER
Guy is a flat-out multipurpose running back that just makes defenders miss all the time. Will be fun to watch when we get in the summer for some camp action. Love the fact that he does not give up on plays and still fights for it. Finds the open hole and lets his blocks develop to make his play.
Caden Casimino Crystal Lake Central QB Class Of 2024 HUDL TWITTER
Was taken aback by his throws and his demeanor is unlike other QBs. Great on the rollout with the smooth touch on the ball. Caden could be a major Fox Valley sleeper in the coming years that you must watch out for.
OTHER PLAYERS THAT INTERESTED ME TODAY AT TOP GUN 7on7
Cooper Kmet St. Viator QB/ATH Class Of 2025 TWITTERHUDL
Nice touch on the ball for young Cooper along with the rest of the QBs, but this sets Cooper aside is his growth. Still at the class of 2025 and one of the more talked about recruits.
Anthony Palano Buffalo Grove LB/WR Class Of 2024 TWITTERHUDL
Anthony reminds me of other MSL players in pat that we don't know about till one huge game in the Fall, and they explode on the recruiting scene. Don't sleep on this kid.
