DETROIT – There was a lot of talent on display on June 1st at the Wayne State mega camp. It was a star-studded group led by plenty of five and four-star recruits. Top 100 recruit Boo Carter(TN), 2025 star QB Bryce Underwood(MI), top 100 WR Andrew Marsh(TX), 2025 top 100 QB TJ Lateef(CA), top 100 DL London Merrit(GA), and a host of other big timers were in attendance.
The one-of-a-kind event was also full of young elite talent that stood out to coaches during the showcase. Impressed coaches met with athletes at the end of each session, which led to college offers for many in the high-level group.
The 2026 ATH Shavar Young out of Knoxville Webb (TN) is one to watch for. The dynamic playmaker has big-time ability on both sides of the ball. His only expectation before the camp was to “not lose a rep, go hard during the drills and show effort.” During the off-season, Young has focused on “putting on weight, getting off the ball, getting faster, and tightening up his technique.” Young picked up a Michigan State offer after his performance at the camp, proving his underrated speed and “hard work is being rewarded.”
The best QB in the younger group was phenom 2027 Trae Taylor (IL). Taylor checked in at 6’1, which is a good size for a QB his age. He has a good IQ for a young QB and soaks in information. Taylor throws a nice deep ball where only the receiver can reach it. Taylor will be one to watch in the near future. The mentally tough and talented QB picked up a CMU offer after the camp.
2025 DB CJ Spence (MD) perfectly executed his goal of “getting a lot of reps and competing” during the camp. With 16 offers before the event, Spence was very optimistic about meeting coaches and learning as much as possible. Referring to drills, Spence shared, “I learned a lot at the camp that I’m going to take back home to work on my craft more.” The big 6’3 DB has long arms and good feet. Spence is as good as advertised. The 2025 WR/TE Sele Cox (MI) was a beast in one-on-ones. He uses his 6’4 frame well and has good ball skills when tracking the ball in the air. Cox lines up at WR for his high school, but his current position in college will be TE.
