The OT7 National Championship held in Los Angeles, California this past week was the most loaded 7on7 tournament of the year. The invite only tournament only had twelve teams participating, but every game was stacked with blue chip prospects across the board. The competition among all of these top prospects was incredible, but several performers stood out among the rest.
QB Julian Sayin
Julian Sayin showed up to the OT7 National Championship fresh off of winning the Elite 11 MVP and kept on rolling. Sayin lead his Raw Miami team to a 3-0 record during Friday’s pool play and helped them reach the finals in the elimination rounds on Sunday. Sayin displayed incredible accuracy, ball placement and decision making. The five-star Alabama commit found success at all levels and was able to fit the ball into tight windows downfield. Sayin was arguably the most impressive of any player in the entire tournament.
WR Jeremiah Smith
Five Star WR Jeremiah Smith is regarded as the top wideout prospect since Julio Jones over a decade ago. Smith’s combination of size, speed and route running makes him a mismatch nightmare. At nearly 6’4-215lbs, Smith was able to dominate down the field and often take over games by himself. The Ohio State commit often found himself behind the defense making incredible touchdown catches. Smith left no doubt that he’s the best WR in the country.
WR Dakorien Moore
Dakorien Moore is a 2025 prospect, but that didn’t stop him from having a dominant performance. Moore is ranked as one of the top three receivers in the 2025 class and his skills were on full display. While the five-star receiver out of Duncanville, Texas only stands at about 5’11-175lbs, his speed, athleticism and hands make him nearly impossible to stop. Moore has the speed to run by any defensive back and the ability to out jump anyone lined up across from him. Moore made countless spectacular leaping catches over the top of defenders and solidified himself as one of the best pass catchers in his class.
CB Ellis Robinson
Top ranked 2024 corner Ellis Robinson was the most impressive defensive player on the field all tournament. Robinson has all ofthe physical and mental traits of an elite corner and is an ultimate competitor. Robinson would often follow around the opposing team’s best receiver and shut them down. Robinson followed Jeremiah Smith around and came up with two massive interceptions to help Raw Miami beat SFE. The five-star UGA commit didn’t allow a touchdown all tournament and was constantly making plays. Much like Jeremiah Smith, you could make an argument that Robinson is the top prospect at his position in quite some time.
CB Devin Sanchez
Devin Sanchez is one of the top ranked players in the 2025 class. At 6’2-170lbs with long arms, Sanchez has an elite frame and plenty of speed to go with it. Sanchez is incredibly comfortable in coverage and is always in the right position. The five-star out of Houston, Texas also has great ball skills and can go up and make a play on any ball in his direction. Sanchez was constantly using his length and athleticism to break up passes for the Trillion Boys.
S Zaquan Patterson
Five-star safety Zaquan Patterson was all over the field for Defcon at the OT7 National Championship. Patterson has incredible size and strength that had some considering him as a possible OLB at the next level, but he’s shown everyone throughout the 7v7 season that he has the speed to cover anyone. Even as a safety, Patterson often shadowed the opponent’s top receiver and was able shut down just about everyone. The Chaminade Madonna product is an incredible athlete that also played receiver for Defcon as well.
