Ty Hahn, WR/DB, Johnson-Brock (2020): Hahn looked like he was back to full health after suffering a hamstring injury during the track season. It was the third day in a row Hahn had participated in a camp of some kind. Friday he was at Northwestern; Saturday he was at Iowa State, and Sunday he played with Warren Academy in Lincoln. Hahn made plays pretty much the entire day, but one that stands out was a back of the endzone leaping grab for a touchdown. At 6-foot-2, 187-pounds, Hahn brings a wealth of versatility to the field and is one to keep an eye on to potentially grab some power conference scholarship offers as June progresses.
Xavier Watts, WR/DB, Omaha Burke (2020): Playing for Warren Academy, Watts made more than one highlight reel catch. Watts was clearly the biggest potential recruit at the event as evident by most, if not all, of Nebraska's football staff watching every game he played. Although he won't participate, Watts is set to return to Lincoln on Friday for NU's first of two Friday Night Lights camps. Prior to Friday's return, he said he is considering making a trip to Iowa State for an unofficial visit on Thursday.
Tyreese Schieffer, WR/DB, Omaha Benson (2020): Schieffer is clearly not as popular of a player in recruiting circles as his Warren Academy teammates. That didn't matter on Sunday. He had a great day on Sunday grabbing touchdowns and deflecting passes on defense.
Xzavier Reed, DB, Creighton Prep (2020): Reed is another player that had a nice day. His frame translates really well to the next level, and it would be difficult to find a player with as much length as him at the corner back position.
Jace Cooper, WR/DB, Omaha Northwest (2020); Rhakim Prince, QB, Omaha Northwest (2020): Cooper and quarterback Rhakim Prince (2020) have a great connection. In bracket play, Prince made a tremendous catch on a deep ball that just made it inside the pylon for a score. He's not a burner but has solid hands and uses his 6-foot, 180-pound body well on crossing routes. Prince was one of the better quarterbacks in the camp. He has command of the huddle, takes coaching well and is a true competitor as evident by his show of emotion when Northwest to lost Warren Academy in the quarterfinals on a late controversial call.
Aidan Oerter, QB, Norris (2020): Norris defeated Creighton Prep in the quarterfinals and then fell to Warren Academy in the semifinals. That was without star 2020 running back Ashton Hausmann, who was camping at Virginia Tech this weekend. Orter passed for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns last season as a junior, and he is poised for an even better senior season. He can throw with good velocity and, at the same time, put a good touch on the ball. He followed progressions well and found the open man often.
Gabe Knisley, Ath, Seward (2020): At 5-9, 185-pounds, Knisley is the prototypical label of athlete. As a coach, you just need to find a way to get him on the field. He played running back, defensive back and looked as though he is capable of being an in-the-box outside linebacker.
