Underrated prospects from Elite 11 regional

by Jamaar Hawkins, i64sports

Here is a look at the guys we felt performed well and could use this offseason to see a bump in their recruitment.

Darian King, ’22 RB/WR IC Norcom High School

One of the quickest athletes in the Hampton Roads area. Dynamic with the ball in his hands. King posted laser times of 4.52 and 4.36 in the 40-yard dash and agility shuttle drill.

Jamauri Knox, ’24 WR Oscar Smith High School

It seems like each year Oscar Smith has a bevy of talented skill position players. Knox will be apart of a talented wide receiver group for the Tigers this year. While he didn’t run the 40 at the regional camp it was easy to see the shiftiness in Knox during the drill portion.

Devin Douglas Morgan, ‘22 DL Bishop McNamara High School

Douglas Morgan is a name that should pop up on college coaches radar should there be a high school football season in Virginia this year. Slighty undersized for an interior defender, Douglas Morgan makes up for his lack size with a tremendous motor. Coaches raved about his work ethic and fire off the ball during drills.

NaiQuan Pearce, ’23 LB Kempsville High School

Young linebacker with plenty of upside. Inaugural Futures Game MVP two years ago. At his best when he is able to play downhill. Has also played running back in the past so that tells you about his level of athleticism. Pearce is a backer that college coaches should be monitoring over the next few years.

Not pictured:

Paul Billups, ’23 WR Western Branch High School

Good ball skills. Athleticism really translated well during game action. Still learning the wide receiver position but has the potential to be one of the best in the state if he continues to improve.

Quedrion Miles, ’22 DB Green Run High School

First-year starter as a sophomore last year. Finished with 42 tackles (5 for loss) and 2 interceptions. Solid playmaker. Receiving interest from UVA, Pitt & UL-Monroe.
