Road to the Crown: DR7 Tulsa — Notable Weekend Standouts

Written by: Drew Johnson (@RealNews102)

There’s no doubt that nobody has done it like DR7 when putting together a structured tournament and now combining the scouting service of The Platform has the organization unmatched. The DR7 national circuit allows scouts and coaches to get eyes on various kids early on from different areas. The mission and goal of The Platform is to #ExposeTheUnexposed and provide adequate coverage of athletes participating in DR7 tournaments and around the country. Let’s evaluate a few standouts from this weekend in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


Chase Loftin | TE | 2025 | Millard South | @ChaseLoftin8 

Loftin performed this weekend on the DR7 circuit and displayed his Real Deal potential to be a top 2025 tight-end prospect in the country. The 6-6, 215-pounder is currently ranked as the No.1 recruit in Nebraska with big-time Power 4 offers coming in as he recently locked in his top 10 schools. Loftin showed off his sticky glue reliable hands and surprising speed/route running for his size. Look out for a productive senior season as he looks to make an important decision for the next level.


Jaden Nickens | WR | 2025 | Millwood | @jaden_nickens 

This kid is for sure a DOG who finished as a top wide receiver standout this weekend on the DR7 circuit. Nickens makes the game look easy with his athletic build and crazy catch radius. He’s now back on the market for college coaches to build a relationship after a decommitment from the University of Oklahoma. Nickens is a premier recruit with another season to build on his bag of skills.


Donald Collier | WR | 2024 | Trinity Academy | @CollierDonald4

The recent Kansas commit made his appearance on the DR7 circuit this weekend and helped WHEAT 7v7 bring home the 18U championship. Smooth route running, electric speed, reliable hands. These are some of the traits that describe this kid on the gridiron. After a record-breaking high school season, Collier has a purpose this offseason to show he’s the real deal with a chance to make an early impact at the next level.


DeSaahn Brame | TE | 2025 | Derby | @dasaahn 

One of the top tight-end prospects in the country dominated competition this weekend in Tulsa. Brame showed he’s not just a big framed riser at around 6-4 but has the skills and fluid route running to be a problem in the pass game. Impressed with his speed and ability to bring in tough catches across the middle of the field. Brame has offers from nearly every Power 4 who will look to lock in on his tremendous potential. 


Amarion Jackson | ATH | 2026 | Millard South | @AjJackson_21 

Not sure many 2026 prospects made more of an impact for his team this weekend than Amarion Jackson. This kid has all the tools to be a big-time wide receiver recruit on the market in the next two seasons. At 6’2, 185-pounds, Jackson displayed playmaker abilities to bring in tough catches with speed and strong hands. He’s fresh off a 1,000+ yard receiving season where he can build on that solid performance heading into the spring.


Nate Roberts | TE | 2025 | Washington | @nateroberts2025 

All weekend in Oklahoma was dominant tight ends and Roberts was amongst the best as the national recruit appeared on the DR7 circuit competing with Sooner Seven this weekend. Roberts recently announced his top 5 schools with a big-time senior season on the horizon to focus on. The dual-sport decorated athlete is a 4x state football (2) and baseball (2) champion and will look to bring great upside potential to the next level.

Josiah Dickerson | RB | 2028 | NJHS | @JosiahDickers16

It’s kids like this who make the 7v7 traveling journey worth it. To get eyes on some of the top rising prospects in the country is what these offseason settings are all about and man, Josiah Dickerson is for sure the real deal. Pure electricity on the gridiron as he’s a versatile athlete with pure speed and athleticism. One of the premier 2028 recruits had a highlight video worth of notable plays he made. He should continue making noise heading into the spring with college camps on the horizon.


Chris Joe | ATH | 2025 | WHite Hall |@chris_joe07

This kid was one of the better versatile athletes this weekend on the DR7 circuit who made impact plays on both sides of the ball. I locked his name in after watching him grab an interception out of the air and take it to the house. He followed up on the next offensive drive with an athletic head-topping touchdown catch. The 6-3, 205-pound rising junior has been slept-on but not for long when coaches get eyes on his playmaking abilities. 


Best of the Rest:

Colton Yarbrough | EDGE | 2026 | Durant | @ColtonYarbrou7

A premier 2026 national recruit who played some tight end this week but will be a big-time playmaker coming off the edge for years to come.

Walter Hicks | LB | 2025 | Benton | @WalterHicks2025

Dwayne White | ATH | WR | Prescott | @Dwaynewhite2025

Kamauri Austin | WR | 2026 | Bryant | @WhynotKam

Ashton White | WR | 2024 | @AshtonW285
