BRADENTON, Fla. – Some of the top players in the class of 2025 are performing at IMG Academy this weekend in the Under Armour Future 50 event. Today marked workouts for the prospects, split into two sessions.
Numerous recruits showcased their skillset in the Sunshine State this weekend. That group was led by one of the best wide receivers in the country.
On3 MVP: WR Jamie Ffrench (2025)
Jaime Ffrench is one of the most polished wideouts I have seen with my own eyes this cycle. This has been the fourth time I’ve been able to watch him workout in person and he continues to not disappoint. Ffrench, who plays at Jacksonville (Fla.) Mandarin, makes the game look effortless. His movement skills and ball tracking are all so smooth that it almost looks like he is working at half-speed.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound wideout also was arguably the most versatile of the receivers out there on Saturday. In one-on-one’s, he showed the ability to throttle up and down in order to set up defenders and create separation. His skillset combined with his size allows him to play as a true Z or X receiver at the next level.
In the seven-on-seven portion, Ffrench contributed to show off his smooth route running and remained open for the majority of the evening. Ffrench is a technical wideout that is a savant at playing the position. He can win at all three levels of the field and can catch the ball naturally. He is a bonafide PRO.
2. DL Justus Terry — Georgia (2025)
Georgia four-star defensive lineman Justus Terry is definitely going to be one of the first guys to get off the bus at the next level. His frame is terrific. He is barrel-chested with quality length, has an athletic lower half and a quality trunk that will allow him to gain mass while adding hardly any bad weight. Terry, who plays at Manchester (Ga.), is exactly what defensive coaches are looking for when it comes to versatile defensive line prospects.
He has the burst and athleticism to play off the edge, but he also has the raw power and ability to play with leverage in order to kick inside. Terry’s movement skills combined with his size made him a borderline impossible defender to block all day long on Saturday. I expect his best football to be ahead of him based off of what I saw today. He has all the physical and athletic gifts in order to be a special talent at the next level.
3. WR Dakorien Moore (2025)
Five-star wide receiver Dakorien Moore stood out in an absolutely loaded field of talent. His suddenness and ability to get in and out of his breaks combined with his long speed and ability to naturally pluck the ball was phenomenal. Moore, who plays at Duncanville (Texas), can change gears with ease and has such a natural feel for throttling up and down in order to keep defenders off-balance and off-tempo.
Add in the fact that even when he does happen to be contested, he can still go up and win the 50-50 ball and play above the rim. Long story short, he’s going to be a pro. And on a field full of future pros, Moore was the one of the few that genuinely stood out.
4. RB Harlem Berry (2025)
Four-star running back Harlem Berry is electric, plain and simple. He has unbelievable burst and possesses the ability to stick his foot in the ground and disappear from his defender. The foot speed and change of direction are truly special and it allows him to make defenders wrong even when they play things right. Not only is Berry sudden and agile, he has the long speed to hit the home run ball consistently.
In the Fastest Man 40-yard dash Challenge to end the morning session, Berry ran a 4.31 (according to my watch) to get into the finals and then won the contest with a 4.28 to win the competition. All of this was done after completing a two-hour workout. Berry, who plays at Metairie (La.) St. Martin’s Episcopal School, is an offensive weapon and let everybody on the field today know that he is the last one anyone wants to try and defend out of the backfield in one-on-one situations.
5. Safety Faheem Delane (2025)
Four-star safety Faheem Delane was the best looking defensive back out there today, both physically and in terms of his ability on the field. His natural home is at safety at the next level, but he was able to hold his own and then some as a cornerback during the one-on-one session. He carried over his confidence during the morning session into the evening seven-on-seven session and dominated.
Delane had a pass breakup and an interception while switching between cornerback and safety. With his size and movement skills, Delane showed his versatility and proved he can be a Swiss army knife at the next level and beyond.
6. WR Naeshaun Montgomery (2025)
Four-star wide receiver Naeshaun Montgomery is the definition of consistent. Between eight and 16 yards, he is a menace. Montgomery, who plays at West Palm Beach (Fla.) Cardinal Newman, is able to constantly separate from defenders with his wiggle and fluidity at the top of his routes. He genuinely may be the smoothest wideout in the cycle. Montgomery was paper-cutting the defense to death during the seven-on-seven period.
Everyone on the field knew where the ball was going and it didn’t matter. Montgomery is so good at taking over the middle of the field and making his presence felt on every down. It helps too that he is such a natural pass catcher and is able to pluck the ball away from his body and hold on to it despite being collapsed on by defenders as soon as the ball hits his hands. Montgomery put on a clinic today and deserved a spot on this list.
7. DL London Merritt (2025)
Four-star defensive lineman London Merritt was arguably the most explosive and fluid pass rusher at the event today. His ability to bend and turn the corner was second to none. Merrit, who plays at Atlanta (Ga.) Woodward Academy, flashes such great athleticism for his body type and has the rare blend of pop in his pads and fluidity for a defensive lineman.
The question with Merritt will be if he develops into an interior defensive lineman or stays on the EDGE. He stands in right around 6-foot-2 with solid length, but is not freakishly long. However, he proved that he is not afraid to be physical in the trenches and he can get to the quarterback from the EDGE consistently.
8. OT Michael Fasusi (2025)
Four-star offensive tackle Michael Fasusi is a large human being with fantastic footwork. He is tremendously light on his feet for someone with his size. Not only is he large in mass, but his arm length is also absurd. Fasusi, who plays at Lewisville (Texas), looks like what they are supposed to look on Sundays.
He showed some serious flashes of dominance during the one-on-one sessions in the morning and in the evening, including reaching the finals in the Big Man one-on-one challenge to finish off the entire event. He had some moments where he didn’t tie his feet to his shoulders and was caught off-balance at times, but he has all the physical and athletic tools that coaches dream about along the offensive line.
9. RB Ousmane Kromah (2025)
Four-star running back Ousmane Kromah was easily the most physically-ready player at the event today. If I had to pick someone to put on a college field right now, it would be Kromah. His build is game ready and he has the burst and body type to carry the load with ease. Kromah, who plays at Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County, is surprisingly twitched up for his size and he gets downhill in a hurry.
I thought he had much better footwork than I expected and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable he was moving around in space. He can fight the football at times when trying to catch the ball downfield, but he proved that he is more than comfortable enough to be a threat in the underneath passing game. Kromah looked the part of an immediate contributor at the next level.
10. WR Dallas Wilson — Oregon (2025)
Oregon four-star wide receiver commit Dallas Wilson was one of the true X receivers at the event today and he shined during the seven-on-seven session this evening. He started the period with a drop in the end zone and it must have lit a fire underneath him because he went on to score three touchdowns on three straight possessions.
Moore, who plays at Tampa (Fla.) Tampa Bay Tech, has an ability to go up and attack the football with his size and speed. That is what wide receiver coaches cover most at the X receiver position. He has some rawness in his ability to run routes and separate from a technique standpoint, but his athleticism for his size is exactly what teams are looking for at the next level.
Just Missed — Offense
The quarterback group was a bit sporadic all day for the most part, but Findlay (Ohio) four-star quarterback Ryan Montgomery and San Diego (Calif.) Lincoln four-star quarterback Akili Smith Jr. had their bright spots throughout the day on Saturday.
The skill group was extremely loaded. A lot of offensive weapons looked great today, but I wanted to shine a spotlight on Alabama five-star wide receiver commit Ryan Williams, Fulshear (Texas) Katy Jordan four-star wide receiver Andrew Marsh, Lucas (Texas) Lovejoy four-star wide receiver Daylan McCutcheon, Alpharetta (Ga.) four-star tight end Ethan Barbour, Selma (Ala.) Southside four-star athlete Derick Smith, Colorado four-star wide receiver commit Winston Watkins Jr., Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei four-star running back Jordon Davison and Alabama four-star running back commit Anthony Rogers all had their moments of brilliance.
The offensive line unit was strong. I was honestly impressed with most of the group. Some of the players that had great moments were Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman four-star interior offensive lineman SJ Alofaituli, Georgia four-star offensive tackle commit Micah DeBose, Jacksonville (Fla.) Raines four-star offensive tackle Solomon Thomas and Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman four-star offensive tackle Douglas Utu.
Just Missed — Defense
The defensive side of the ball had a lot of impressive athletes. The secondary in particular was extremely strong including Ohio State four-star safety commit Jontae Gilbert, Upper Marlboro (Md.) St. John’s four-star cornerback Tariq Hayer, Brownsboro (Texas) four-star cornerback Micah Strickland, Enterprise (Ala.) four-star safety Eric Winters, New Iberia (La.) Westgate four-star cornerback Jaboree Antoine, Orange Park (Fla.) Mandarin four-star cornerback Hylton Stubbs, Lexington (Miss.) Holmes County Central four-star cornerback Cortez Thomas and Mission Viejo (Calif.) four-star cornerback Dijon Lee.
The linebacker group was solid. The group as a whole was very athletic and showed some impressive ability in space. The few that I want to highlight are Horn Lake (Miss.) Lake Cormorant four-star linebacker Jarcoby Hopson, Dallas (Texas) South Oak Cliff four-star linebacker Kelvion Riggins, Omaha (Neb.) Westside four-star linebacker Christian Jones and Port Saint Lucie (Fla.) Vero Beach four-star linebacker Tarvos Alford.
The trenches were full of physical specimens. Out of all the players that put on great performances, I wanted to spotlight Tallahassee (Fla.) James Rickards four-star defensive lineman Jalen Wiggins, Greensboro (N.C.) Grimsley four-star EDGE Bryce Davis and Hattiesburg (Miss.) four-star defensive lineman Kevin Oatis.
