RIVALS CAMP SERIES: Info for 2022 series




Lewis will soon be a household name for college football recruiting fans. Another rising star out of Carrollton (Ga.) High School, Lewis has already piled 11 offers up before getting varsity action.

Going through drills against quarterbacks committed to top Power Five programs, Lewis was in his element and as good as anyone else regardless of age. Lewis is so well-drilled in the fundamentals showing excellent footwork and throwing mechanics which helped him pinpoint the pigskin throughout the day especially during 1-on-1s.



Florida State fans have a reason to be happy with Davis attached to their 2024 class. Davis is muscled up which came through during drills against the linebackers picking up the blitz. In one of the surprises of the day, Davis separated himself from other tailbacks running routes hauling in passes against safeties and linebackers; he is more than a power back with speed.

Davis is a Rivals100 talent for all the right reasons and those abilities were verbally committed to the Seminoles in Feb. 2021. Programs continue to recruit Davis, who is up to nearly 40 offers despite his pledge to the Seminoles.



STOCK BOOSTER: Antwann Hill, Jr.

The hype and push for Hill along the recruiting trail may take a few more months, but after his performance on Sunday it will be well-earned. The 2025 Houston County (Ga.) quarterback had a slow start going through the drills but found his grove, especially when connecting with receivers against top defensive backs, raising his stock.

Hill already holds offers from Pitt, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Arkansas and Georgia.



Taking them deep, breaking ankles on comebacks, and dragging defenders across the field, White did a little bit of everything on Sunday, and did it in style. The talk on the field after seeing him perform, White began the day as a relative unknown but left having raised his stock. The size of a prototypical inside receiver, White has the extended second gear to burn corners on the outside as well.

Expect to see college scouts make the trip to Cartersville’s Cass High School to follow up on White. The programs getting a leg up on his recruitment are Troy, Florida A&M and Maryland.



If Metcalf wasn’t knocking a pass away he was hauling one in discouraging quarterbacks and receivers alike. So it seemed, every other opportunity during the 1-on-1s, Metcalf was stepping up to the challenge taking on whoever dared line up. His backpedal, hips, and explosive speed was a shadow of hopeful receivers rep after rep.

Metcalf earned an invite to the Rivals Underclassmen Challenge with his performance on Sunday. His play on Fridays have brought three reported offers to the Alabama prospect with Jackson State, Alabama A&M and Arkansas already seeing his next level skills.


MR. ENERGY: Jack Luttrell

Luttrell was a pest against receivers, getting great jams and opening his hips covering any and all opponents. Besides taking as many reps as possible on defense, he flipped the script taking reps at receiver. Lining up on the other side of the ball allowed Luttrell to show just how athletic he is looking the part of a FBS receiver as well.

The Peach State talent committed to Tennessee last summer.




The world of football is known for producing dudes of massive size, but Lange is in a whole other universe. The Minnehaha Academy offensive lineman wowed all with his massive size measuring in at 6-foot, 9-inches, 375 pounds. Big is one thing, but Lange is not a statue; he can move. He made the state of Minnesota proud with his effort going against some of the best defensive linemen in the country.

Lange entered the camp without an offer but that will change in a hurry as he makes the college camp circuit rounds this summer.


FUTURE PHENOM: Nicolai Brooks

One has to feel sorry for opposing high school defensive linemen going against Brooks over the next three years. Brooks is already big at 6-foot, 7-inches, and well north of 300 pounds. The developing skills showed going against players two to three years his senior. Far from a finished product, still, Brooks impressed with his kick step, lateral movement, and long arms knocking pass rushers cold in their tracks.

Cornerstone offensive tackles are rare making Brooks a unique prospect. College teams will fight over Brooks as long as he remains uncommitted. Penn State, Georgia Tech, Auburn and Georgia have already put an offer in his massive hands.


TOUGH GUY: Bradyn Joiner

The collective of offensive linemen were pumped on Sunday from the moment they stepped foot on the field. The group showed up ready to bring the spotlight to their side of the offensive line and Joiner was a ringleader hyping up his peers with his play. As the trench hogs won their battles dominating in stretches of the 1-on-1s, Joiner was among the best in attendance walling off nose guards and defensive tackles. With each victorious rep, Joiner would let the defeated verbally know who was boss.

Joiner dominating the way that he did wasn’t a big surprise, after all he is the top-ranked center in the 2023 class. The good news for Auburn fans, the hometown Auburn High School talent wants to stay home for college to play for the Tigers.



MR. CONFIDENCE: Ja'Qualin Birdsong

Talk about no fear and bringing the heat off the edge, Birdsong was that guy for the defense during the early portion of the camp. Nowhere near the biggest guy on the field, Birdsong brought his brand of play to the camp being a sparkplug of energy at end repeatedly winning reps regardless of who was lined up against him.

The recruiting stock for the 2024 Rivals250 defender continues to rise. Showcasing his skills with Georgia’s Troup County High School, Birdsong has early offers from Notre Dame, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Georgia Tech.
