NEW ORLEANS -- The Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour will head to
East Jefferson High School in New Orleans this weekend and many top storylines are expected to emerge. Here are five things to watch for on
1. Bayou State
Who's the top wide receiver in the state of Louisiana? New Orleans (La.)
Warren Easton Senior standout Tyron Johnson enters as the top receiver
but he will be pushed by New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine four-star
committed to Alabama. Destrehan, La. wide receiver
Kirk Merritt also
has a very impressive offer list and 2016 star Stephen Sullivan from
Donaldson, La. is already committed to LSU and is massive at 6-foot-6 and 210
pounds. It should be a great receivers group to watch.
The 2017 LSU commitment from Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab gets his own
category for a reason. Every time we see Moses he looks bigger and stronger and
he's projected to grow into a tall, big defensive end before all is said and
done. The freshman sensation is always fun to watch and it will be interesting
to see at which position or positions he decides to work out. He is arguably the
biggest name at the camp and he's still three years away from his Signing Day.
3. Jashon Cornell competing down south
The defensive end from Saint Paul (Minn.) Cretin-Durham Hall is one of the
top prospects in the country and perhaps the prospect who has the biggest
rankings discrepancy across the industry right now. The 6-foot-3, 238-pounder is
a consensus top 100 prospect and will be taking visits to LSU,
Ole Miss and
Mississippi State and wanted to compete at the New Orleans RCS to test his
talents against players from the south. He's expected to dominate against a
relatively weak offensive line group.

In addition to Sullivan and Moses, there are a ton of talented 2016 and 2017
prospects set to attend and compete at the camp. Quarterback
Bladrick Veal will be slinging the football to Sullivan as well as
2016 running backs Devin White from Springhill (La.) North Webster and
Tre Turner from New Orleans (La.) Holy Cross.
On defense, defensive tackles Edwin Alexander from Hammond (La.) St.
Thomas Aquinas (LSU commit), Glen Logan from Destrehan, La. and
George Lea from New Orleans (La.) Landry-Walker lead the way and
cornerbacks Tre Jackson from Lab (Florida commitment) and Kristian Fulton from Metairie (La.) Rummel both have a lot of talent. Youth will be
served at the camp as always.
5. Don't sleep
on the DBs
In addition to Jackson and Fulton, there are many top defensive backs
expected to attend as well. Four-star safety Hunter Dale from River
Ridge (La.) John Curtis leads a deep group at his position and the cornerback
position overall is very deep. The strength of this camp on offense is at wide
receiver and on defense it is very likely the secondary.
