All-Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Series: Receivers and tight ends
The Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Series presented by adidas has concluded all of its regional stops. We put together the 10 best by position throughout the camp series this spring. Today: wide receivers and tight ends. They are listed in order of best performance.
Recruiting Wrap: St. Brown is still wide open, but Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Stanford and USC are considered among the top contenders.
Performance: There was no stopping St. Brown at the L.A. edition of this year’s camp, and he went out and easily won position MVP awards. St. Brown took a ton of reps and rarely lost one, while showing explosiveness, exceptional route-running and a strong pair of hands.
Recruiting Wrap: Thompson is committed to Virginia Tech.
Performance: Thompson wowed with his flair for the dramatic at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Charlotte, making several highlight worthy catches that drew praise from his fellow competitors. When he isn't making one-handed catches Thompson can also make the routine look easy, something that helped him win MVP honors at his position.
Recruiting Wrap: Knox has offers from Ohio State, Tennessee, Florida and several others.
Performance: Knox turned in one of the most impressive performances at any position on the entire camp series, dominating the competition at the St. Louis camp en route to MVP honors. Knox is just getting started on the national scene but if he can back up his showing in St. Louis with a big performance at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge he could establish himself as one of 2019's best prospects, regardless of position.
Recruiting Wrap: Adams has several offers, most notably BYU, North Texas and Texas State.
Performance: Adams was a major surprise at the Dallas camp, earning MVP honors over a loaded field of competitors. Adams has impressive size and he knows how to use it to go up and make big plays, something he did with regularity at the event.
Recruiting Wrap: Moore holds a number of offers, but Miami seems to be his leader.
Performance: Moore was the wide receiver MVP of the camp series' Miami stop. There, he impressed with his sudden change of pace and an ability to get open on deep routes. He was the most constant wideout in a loaded position group.
Recruiting Wrap: North Carolina is the favorite to land Adams' commitment over Clemson later this month.
Performance: Adams was dominant at the Charlotte Rivals Camp. He is a fantastic route runner and had no problem creating separation regardless of the play that was called. Adams is explosive but sneaky fast and that left defensive backs almost standing still as he blew passed them.
Recruiting Wrap: A summer decision is likely and Fitzpatrick is still looking at a long list of schools, including UCLA, which he plans to visit June 15-17.
Performance: Fitzpatrick put on a show in Atlanta. He was hurdling linebackers, making catch after catch and he showed he is much more than just an inline blocker in a triple-option offense. He had one of the more impressive camp performances in 2017.
Recruiting Wrap: Indiana, Kentucky and Mississippi State, among others, are in the race for Lewis. He has added more than a dozen offers this spring.
Performance: Lewis was at the front of the line all day in New Orleans getting rep after rep — he won most of them. He is a tight end who can flex out and create mismatches on the next level. He has good hands and he is a solid route runner.
Recruiting Wrap: Taylor is committed to Tennessee.
Performance: Taylor is a versatile athlete whose focus on wide receiver has paid major dividends on the camp circuit this spring. He wowed at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in St. Louis, showing impressive speed, route-running and hands.
Recruiting Wrap: Jones is committed to UTSA.
Performance: The prospect commonly referred to as "Sticks" by his peers put on a show at the Rivals Camp in New Orleans, showing impressive route-running ability, terrific quickness and hands. Jones still needs to add some weight to his frame but his production can't be doubted.
