From pinpoint passes and game-changing interceptions, events like DR7 Road To The Crown provide a platform for athletes to showcase their skills and make a name for themselves. The mission and goal of The Platform is to #ExposeTheUnexposed and provide adequate coverage of athletes around the country giving them exposure. Here are several players who played well at the DR7 Road To The Crown Orlando tournament.

 

 

Ah’millian Jenkins | Class of 2028 | Athlete | 7v7: Spartan Chosen | Horizon Academy

Jenkins flashed early with his ability to line up on both sides of the ball. At receiver, he showed that he can run clean routes, he catches the ball in traffic well for a young player and he has the quickness and speed to make big plays with the ball in his hands. Defensively, he plays the passing lanes well, showing good ball skills when he defended passes thrown in his zone. Jenkins has a game the will flourish as he continues to mature and a frame that could possibly have him playing multiple positions.

 

Corynte’ Graham | Class of 2029 | Athlete | 7v7: Spartan Chosen

Graham has the versatility to play both sides of the ball and be a playmaker. Offensively, he was able to win on his routes often, he has reliable hands that attack the football and his ability to make big catches allowed him to be key contributor for his team. On defense he lined up at cornerback, he played well in press coverage, he is sticky defender who is able to stay locked at the hip with his opponent, which lead to several pass breakups for him defensively. Corynte’ has impressive footwork combined with natural ball skills that enables him to be in position to make plays on the football. He was one of the early standouts on day one of the DR7 RTC Orlando event.

 

 

Alloysius Tyson | Class of 2024 | Defensive Back | 7v7: Team Tampa | @AlloysiusTyson5

Tyson has excellent ball skills, he has clean footwork and his ability to be active at the snap put him in position to make plays on the ball in coverage often. Tyson flexed his muscles, he was stout at the point of attack, which allowed him to break up several passes. He has a well developed frame at  5’10 185 pounds that he uses well to play a physical brand of coverage at the cornerback position. Tyson has the measurables that could have him shift to safety at the next level. Watching him play well in one on one coverage showed that he won’t have a problem in man or zone coverage. He has the skill set to play the nickel corner or safety position. His ability to play with controlled aggression was one of several traits that stood out in his game. The William Penn commit, has the tools to challenge for playing time as a freshman when he gets to campus.

 

 

Brandon Kubay | Class of 2025 | Tight End | 7v7: Team Tampa | Clearwater Academy International | @brandon_kubay

Kubay passes the eye test at 6’5 230 pounds, he has great length combined with an extended catch radius that gives him an advantage over his opponents. He plays with good leverage, he uses his length in close quarters to free himself up and his ability to utilize his frame in tight coverage allowed him to make several catches in traffic. What stood out the most about Kubay was his route running and speed. Brandon is a very polished route runner, he has the ability to create separation at the top of his route and his knack for finding soft spots in the defense was on display on Sunday. After watching his fall tape, Kubay showed that he is a aggressive blocker in the running game and he has the tools in his game to play at the next level. Offers from Jacksonville State and Bucknell are one the table, but expect to see that number increase as he gets more eyes on him this offseason.

 

Tyler Williams | Class of 2025 | Wide Receiver | 7v7: Team Tampa | Sumner High School | @TJgokrazzy

Williams was one of the go to targets for Team Tampa, he has sure hands, runs crisp routes and his ability to make the big catch showed that he has the skill set to be dominant offensively. He has a well developed frame with a large catch radius and he has large mitts that engulf the football. Williams has a violent release off of the line of scrimmage that enabled him to get a free release and he made his opponents pay, coming down with big grabs and showing why he is one of the top pass catchers in his class in the state of Florida. He holds double digit offers from schools around the country such as, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado and Georgia Tech.

 

 

Noah Powell | Class of 2030 | Athlete | 7v7: Bay Area Buckeyes

Noah is a playmaker with great ball skills, his natural instincts take over no matter where he lines up and he showed that he has the skill set to be dominant on both sides of the ball. Defensively, he had multiple pass breakups, he plays fast and his ability to be in position to make plays on the ball helped his team cause turnovers. He has a lean, rangy build, with good arm length that allowed to extend and make several high point grabs over defenders in close coverage. He is a natural fit at cornerback and has the skill set that enables him to move fluidly in space. Noah has a nose for the ball, he has the ability to change directions quickly and he stepped in front of a pass helping his team get a turnover. As he matures, you can expect his game to continue to sharpen. Powell made a huge impact on Sunday on both sides of the ball, helping his team advance to within a game of the championship.

 

Jeremiah Sam | Class of 2029 | Wide Receiver | 7v7: MBK

Sam is shifty in space, he runs good routes and his ability to get open easily made him a reliable target offensively. He has strong hands, he is a hands catcher of the football and when he gets free, he goes to work in the open field, excelling at yards after the catch. Jeremiah plays with confidence, he has a swagger to his game and he was a leader in the huddle for MBK. His high level play made him an early standout and his ability to make big plays helped his team stay in games. Sam has the skill set that will make him one of the top players in his class in the state of Florida in the future, get him on your radar now.
