As one of the best camps on the circuit in terms of elite talent, Rivals 3 Stripe Camp Miami has been bringing together the best of the best in South Florida to compete on the gridiron for years now.

And the 2018 version of the camp did not disappoint: over 200 of the area’s best prospects again came out to show their stuff versus the cream of the crop this past Sunday and earn an invite to the Rivals 5-Star Challenge.

With the 2018 class wrapped up and in the books, of course the focus of the camp was the rising seniors of 2019, but plenty of others in the 2020 and 2021classes made a name for themselves as well.

As always, take this with a grain of salt: in a camp setting, kids are spread out all over the field into different groups and it’s impossible to see every play. Still, for my money, here are my top performers from the Rivals 3 Stripe Miami Camp.

Top Performers

Class of 2019

Mark-Antony Richards, ATH, West Palm Beach, FL (Wellington)

The younger brother of Ahmmon showed he can generate plenty of his own excitement, lining up at running back and taking home RB MVP honors on the day. He’s so fluid in his movements and elusive in space, and, on a day where the RB position was inconsistent, Richards was the clear standout. He feels like a Miami lean at this point, but the staff is currently recruiting him as a DB. If RB ends up being Richards’ preferred position at the next level, they’d be crazy to take a pass on him.

John Dunmore, WR, Hollywood, FL (Chaminade-Madonna)

Dunmore was the star of this camp, no doubt about it. At one point, it seemed like every time the WR MVP lined up for a rep in 1-on-1’s he was making a spectacular play. First was a sprawling, one-handed grab near the sidelines where he was blanketed in coverage, but Dunmore reached across the DB’s body and was still able to make the grab. Next, he came back for an underthrown ball and went up and over the DB, completely mossing him.

Finally, matched up against Palm Beach Central DB Akeem Dent, Dunmore had the highlight of the day: Dunmore gave Dent a jab step to the outside and Dent bit hard on the move, freeing up Dunmore completely on the inside. Dent tried to quickly recover, but ended up tripping over himself and falling to the turf, giving Dunmore an easy touchdown and sending the sidelines into a frenzy. The former UF commit is wide-open recruiting-wise after recently backing off his pledge to the Gators; UM has been in contact but has not sent an offer. I’ll go out on a limb and say that changes in the near future.

Dontae Lucas, OT/OG, Bradenton, FL (IMG Academy)

By far the most dominating lineman at the event, Lucas was also the most physically imposing. He didn’t weigh-in at the camp, but he looked every bit of his previously listed height-weight of 6’4” 330 pounds. From what I saw, Lucas only whiffed on one rep during the 1-on-1 action, and he was making breakfast out there with pancake after pancake on some of the top D-Linemen in the region. Miami, FSU, South Carolina, and Tennessee are some schools going after Lucas the hardest.

Demetris Dorceus, DE, Fort Lauderdale, FL (Fort Lauderdale High)

There was a buzz going around about Dorceus throughout the sidelines because not many knew who he was, yet he was winning almost every rep in linemen 1-on-1 drills. He beat out an extremely deep D-Line field to take DL MVP honors and it was well deserved. Dorceus’ rip and swim move is extremely polished for just a junior. A bit under-sized height-wise as a 6’1” DE, NC State and Wake Forest are his only two Power 5 offers, but if this camp is any indication, that number is going up soon. Miami has been in contact.

Khris Bogle, DE, Fort Lauderdale, FL (Cardinal Gibbons)

If Dorceus was the most impressive DL at the camp, Bogle was a very close second. He made his living in the backfield and was nearly impossible to block all day. Per Rivals’ Matt Shodell, Bogle would list Miami in his top 5 if he had one and the Canes are pushing hard here. FSU, Clemson, Alabama, and Michigan are others coming after Bogle.

Cameron Williams, DE, Hollywood, FL (Chaminade-Madonna)

Miami’s newest commit flipped from UF recently and made his presence known early and often on Sunday. Williams’ speed off the edge was surprising for a 6’4” 225 pound player and it seemed the offensive lineman trying to block him were shocked too. Williams’ first step was devastating and he straight up overwhelmed some of the guys across from him. Williams is solid in his commitment but plans to still take visits.

Anthony Solomon, LB, Fort Lauderdale, FL (St. Thomas)

Camps are usually tough for LB’s to shine, but Solomon didn’t seem bothered at all. Solomon has unreal speed for a LB prospect and is a sideline-to-sideline type of player. He was great in coverage and was consistently quick to the ballcarrier, earning him LB MVP. Michigan is an early leader for Solomon, but several programs, including Miami, are still chasing him.

Kaiir Elam, CB, North Palm Beach (The Benjamin School)

The son of Abe Elam and nephew to former Gator DB Matt Elam, Kaiir is a lockdown corner from Palm Beach that was sticking with a deep receiving corps in Miami all day. He has next-level instincts and displays great hip-flip when running with receivers, taking home the DB MVP award as proof of his prodigious talent. Florida is the early leader here for Elam, who also holds a UM offer.

Jordan Battle, S, Fort Lauderdale, FL (St. Thomas)

For my eyes, Battle was the top DB of the day. He was consistently right in his man’s hip pocket and it seemed like he was gliding through the air effortlessly on his many pass break-ups. Miami has yet to offer this talented safety, but Florida, Georgia, Michigan, and Clemson are pursuing Battle with vigor.

Tyrique Stevenson, CB/S, Miami, FL (South Dade)

Stevenson just smothers receivers in the passing game and has that rare ability to take half the field away from an opposing offense. The South Dade star runs well for his size and features elite closing speed. He was one of the few to not win an MVP award and still get an invite to the Rivals 5-star challenge. A former UF commit, Stevenson is taking his time with his recruitment, but has made no secret of his Miami interest, frequently visiting campus for unofficial visits throughout the 2017 season.

Class of 2020

Marc Britt, WR, Hialeah, FL (Champagnat-Catholic)

Britt was the only underclassman to earn an invite to the Rivals 5-Star Challenge on Sunday. The UM commit was uncoverable at times, and unleashed his blazing speed on a few different DB’s in attendance. He’s a long way away from his signing day, but Britt feels pretty solid to the Canes.

Marcus Rosemy, WR, Fort Lauderdale, FL (St. Thomas)

Rosemy uses his size well and straight up bodies and bullies some DB’s. Rosemy made some great catches in traffic on Sunday and is a technician as a route runner. Miami hasn’t offered, but Rosemy attended Paradise Camp back in July, so there’s at least some cursory interest between the two parties. Georgia, Ohio State, and UF are Rosemy’s biggest offers.

Xavier Restrepo, ATH, Fort Lauderdale, FL (St. Thomas)

The second St. Thomas WR on this list, Restrepo mainly lined up at WR, but pulled double duty at DB for some reps as well. He shined as a receiver though, scoring multiple TD’s in the 1-on-1 drills and showed off his amazing quickness. Miami recently offered the St. Thomas Aquinas star, who also lists scholarships from Louisville, Mississippi State, Pitt, and Kentucky.

Samuel Anaele, DE, Miami, FL (Norland)

The fourth DE that could have been in the conversation for MVP, Anaele looked to be right at home going up against a majority of kids that were a year older than him. He’s just so strong at the point of attack, but can also blow by you with his speed. Like Britt, Anaele is a solid Miami commit.

Class of 2021

Aaron Mclaughlin, QB, Buford, GA (Buford)

Half of the battle in these camp settings is showing up and looking the part physically. McLaughlin certainly passed that test with flying colors, as he looks every bit of his 6’4” 226 listed weight. The impressive looking QB was no slouch on the field either, slinging the ball all around the camp with accuracy and zip. Miami is not currently involved, but the talented sophomore sports early offers indicative of a true blue-chip recruit. Michigan, USC, FSU, UCLA, and Texas A&M make up some of his offer list.

Jacorey Brooks, WR, Miami, FL (Booker T. Washington)

With a deep crop of upperclassmen WR in attendance, Brooks didn’t look out of place as one of the top-tier WR’s on Sunday. He’s a future stud and was snatching passes out of the air with his extremely enormous and reliable hands. Miami, Florida, and Tennessee are early verbal offers for Brooks.

Notes

*Fresh off signing his Miami LOI earlier in the week, Nesta Silvera was in attendance at the camp as he watched the action from the sidelines in a Miami tee. Silvera was also rocking some serious orange and green kicks as he spent most of Sunday chatting up teammate and UF signee Andrew Chatfield.

*2019 Miami commit DT Denzel Daxon was in attendance and participated in part. He was plainclothes and wearing Miami gear after the event as well.

*Messing around when switching between stations, Cardinal Gibbons QB Nik Scalzo made one of most jaw-dropping and athletic plays of the day. The play? A back-flip in which Scalzo caught a pass in the air, mid-flip, and basically parallel to the ground. Awesome.

*As can be common at camps featuring Gladiator-style, 1-on-1 wars in the trenches, Lucas and Bogle got into a bit of a scuffle on one rep mid-way through camp. Coaches and players quickly broke it up and Lucas was laughing it off seconds later.

Thanks, Richards desperately needs to be in this class, kid is a special kind of athlete. I'm curious to see what position he ends up playing in college.

Great stuff. This Dorceus kid is intriguing. Any other measurables besides height? How much does he way? If this kid has measurables and produces, I'd be all over this kid.

Thanks to our super secret and well-placed sources *cough cough Duasso* we were able to get our hands on the updated heights and weights of the kids that measured in right there at the camp.

We'll have a full post on the height-weight of the Miami targets in attendance, but since you asked... Dorceus is 6'1" 237.5 pounds

I have an interview with Cam in the pipeline for tomorrow. He lights up when talking about Miami and I believe he is extremely solid to the Canes. I think it's simply a case of wanting to go see other places just to get out there and explore. Even Blades visited a bunch of places this past year.

Nice to know Demetris Dorceus was there. He’s an under the radar kid...very few people know about him.

My son plays in the same 7 on 7 program as Marcus Rosemy and the two teams practice together. Marcus has the size, speed, jumping ability, football IQ and route running skills that you don't find in many kids. The only reason I can think of for him not having a UM offer at this point is he might not have a lot of film. Trust me, Marcus is a better prospect than Trevon Grimes at this stage. If we don;'t offer Marcus, our coaching staff should be fired. One more thing about Marcus: he has worn UM gear every time I've seen him.

I believe Elam is Abe elam’s Son not Matt’s brother since he and Abe are brothers

Abe has no connection to UF so that could help us

I wasn't at the camp, but I've been touting Jordan Battle for a while. If we aren't looking at Jordan Battle, I don't know what we are looking for.

As far as Anthony Solomon is concerned, I was told by family members that University of Miami calls him every day.

We also already have 3 WR's committed in the 20' class

Awesome, thanks. Curious to see how fast this kid is. Love his makeup - 6-1 kid with good size and excellent technique from the outside. He has a great frame based on his pic. Honestly, I know how folks love 6-4, 220 pound DEs but sometimes, the guys with great bend, technique, burst and ability to out-leverage (these guys usually are b/w 6-1 and 6-3) are the best ones.

GoGeta said the same thing about Battle

If that's confirmed, I'll edit it out. That tidbit was told to me by Rivals analyst Chad Simmons after the camp. My b

Really excited about 2019. Going to be one of the most exciting and best recruiting classes in a long time, which is saying something considering 2018

Solomon will also be on campus this weekend per Ivins
