Let’s get ready toooo…wait. We don’t have that kind of budget to pay a certain someone for the rights to that phrase, but you can figure out the rest. The 2015 edition of the BCP Xecutives wraps up the E7 camp series with an all-invitation affair this Sunday in Lakeland on the campus of Southeastern University. The thunder from afternoon storms in the distance shouldn’t be the only thing rumbling as the phrase “best-on-best” will be the only option the coaches have available come this weekend. We are just beginning our week-long coverage leading up to the showcase, so here is the first group of guys (by position group) that we feel just might live up to the expectations when the time comes to make a play.
Malik Tyson -Robinson (6-2,190) -2016
Hunter Orem -Lake Gibson (6-1.5,203) -2016
We expect to see quite a bit of competition at this spot, and we expect the usual suspects like Garrison Bryant or Larry Dalla Betta to perform with consistency and to set the standard. Both of Tyson and Orem could push for that MVP spot with a strong performance on Sunday. Both these guys have made it tough for coaches to choose in the past, so we look for things to be no different this weekend.
Chris Schwarz -River Ridge (5-9,198) -2016
Glass Wilson V -Ridgewood (5-10,185) -2016
The RB position group is stacked upon further review and all 12 of these fellas have something to bring to the table to set the standard for the MVP, but we also expect these two guys specifically that have shown they’re more than just a couple of nice guys from West Pasco. The weight class has gone from lightweight to heavyweight overnight. We think these two players from Pasco can handle it, though.
Keyshon Hopkins -Crystal River (6-2,160) -2016
Kee Whetzel -Countryside (6-3.5,180) -2016
One of these guys has had an invite from day one, and the other received his invite after bursting onto the radar at e7 Summer in Land O’Lakes. Whetzel is an absolute beast and we look forward to seeing him since Ignite all the way back in January. Hopkins was feeding on smaller DB’s during e7 Summer, but don’t get it twisted…dude will stop on a dime and give you change before you can blink.
Matthew Elkins -Anclote (6-4,220) -2016
Aaron Zofnas -Durant (6-3,217) -2016
This group is going to give fits to whoever is covering them. Whether it’s cornerbacks, safeties OR linebackers, there’s size, speed and good hands in this group…on top of of the fact that seven of the twelve spots are made up of members of the classes of 2017 & ’18. These two guys represent all of the attributes that we mentioned will test defenders to their limits.
Trevon Lincoln -Brooksville Central (6-3,305) -2016
Bryce Cooley -Sunlake (6-4,245) -2016
Tons (no pun intended) of reasons to be excited about watching these byos go to work. The list of invitees is impressive to say the least, but these big fellas made even bigger impressions at e7 Summer and should be able to more-than-handle their own.
Zach Carter -Hillsborough (6-5,234) -2017
Richard Drummond -Wharton (6-1,280) -2016
Bobby Roundtree -Largo (6-4,220) -2017
All three of these dudes have the baddest-of-bad intentions and will give the OL position group “the business” if these fellas can’t be stopped. Carter and Drummond are most definitely going to turn some heads, while Roundtree is one of those dudes whose summer has been full of progression and is starting to turn into a man amongst boys.
Josh Anderson -Lennard (6-1,261) -2016
Armand Chalk -Hillsborough (5-9,208) -2017
Tyler Mirabella -Steinbrenner (6-0,215) -2016
There’s eighteen players in this group and all of them are at this event for a reason, but these three could end up making some plays that put them over the top at some point during the day. It’s a diverse group from frame to skill-set, from top-to-bottom throughout the group…but these fellas specifically possess the ability to be as diverse as any of them which is why we think they could flash this weekend.
Mustafe Majeed -Lake Wales (6-1,156) -2016
Jeconiah Jones -Lake Gibson (5-9,164) -2017
A pair of Polk County pigskin poachers…(say that fast, three times)…try and say it as fast as these guys get into phase with the WR’s and you’ll be tongue-tied like a Bavarian Pretzel. Majeed is a transfer from California and has that “west coast” speed and flair to him while Jones has some of that “dawg” in him. Whoever they match-up against should be fun to watch all day.
KJ Sails -East Bay (5-11,170) -2016
Darius Wiliams -Northside Christian (5-8,170) -2016
Kwest Fluitt -Plant City (6-0,190) -2016
These three are about as diverse as the linebackers that we’ve highlighted in terms of how they fit into the position group as a whole and as individual prospects. Sails and Williams are veterans of these camps and we expect them both to play with HUGE chips on their shoulders while we cannot wait to see if Fluitt’s functional athleticism is on display when he takes the pads off.
