TAMPA, Fla. – Dozens of blue-chip prospects are in Tampa this week to take part in the OT7 Championship – the championship of Overtime’s 7-on-7 league. The event features double-digit select 7-on-7 teams with play running from Friday to Sunday. Many top skill prospects from the 2025 and 2026 cycles are in attendance.

Overtime OT7 Finals Roster | Day 1 Top Performers

The setting allows for an up close evaluation of 2025 and 2026 wide receivers, defensive backs, linebackers, tight ends and running backs in 7-on-7 action. We’re able to get a sense for some of the physical tools, technical ability and level of development of the participants. This order is based solely on the performances from Saturday.

On3 MVP Devin Sanchez – Ohio State

Devin Sanchez is the highest-ranked 2025 prospect at the OT7 Championship and has played up to that status through two days. The Five-Star Plus+ cornerback had two interceptions on Saturday. Even when he did give up the occasional completion, he was still in good position. Sanchez got things going by coming down with an eye-popping leaping pick that he nearly ran back for a touchdown. He followed that up with another interception, jumping a pass out of zone coverage. Sanchez has turned in some of the best ball production among defenses backs on hand, picking off three passes through two days despite not being targeted often. His target to interception rate is outstanding and borderline preposterous to this point. The Ohio State pledge and top ten prospect has top shelf coverage ability that stacks up with anyone in the 2025 cycle.

2. QB Deuce Knight – Notre Dame

Deuce Knight was the standout individual performer in the first session of Day 2 at the OT7 Championship. Knight looked like the most talented signal caller on hand, flashing a strong arm and his well-known plus athleticism at times. Knight’s deep ball was more dialed in on Saturday as he connected with several well thrown passes for long scores. We also saw him attack the middle of the field and deliver fade passes with nice touch. The Mississippi native looked increasingly comfortable in working through his progressions and did a nice job of finding open receivers. Knight is arguably the most athletic quarterback in the 2025 cycle and was able to show his speed when blitzed. He had a few long runs and was able to beat defenders to the edge, providing a glimpse of his potential as a run threat at the next level. The Irish commitment ranks as the No. 54 overall prospect in the On300.

3. WR Talyn Taylor

Talyn Taylor was outstanding on Saturday at the OT7 Championship, showing his advanced technical ability yet again. The Geneva (Ill.) Geneva Community product is one of the top route-runners on hand. He creates separation with advanced change of direction and head fakes. Taylor also showed high-end ball skills, making one of the catches of the day, fully extending for a touchdown. In his final game of the day, we saw Taylor draw a best-on-best matchup against fellow blue-chipper Dijon Lee, with the wideout coming down with a high-difficulty toe-tapping touchdown catch in the back of the end zone. Taylor, who ranks as the No. 72 overall prospect in the On300.

4. QB Luke Fahey (2026)

Luke Fahey carved defenses throughout day two of the OT7 Championship. Fahey caught fire early on Saturday finding his favorite target and high school teammate, Vance Spafford, for multiple deep touchdowns showing arm strength and touch. His ball placement and accuracy in delivering catchable footballs away from defenders consistently caught our eye. Fahey was clicking on all cylinders and throwing strikes at every level of the field. He was arguably the most consistent passer on day two of the OT7 Championship. – National Scout Cody Bellaire

5. WR Donovan Olugbode

Donovan Olugbode came alive on Saturday. The IMG Academy pass-catcher found the end zone on three long catch-and-runs. Olugbode showed good burst in the open field and was able to weave through the defense and evade defenders, which is easier said than done in the 7-on-7 setting where a tag counts as a tackle. The ability to make defenders miss at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds should translate to padded situations on Friday nights. Olugbode also showed strong and reliable hands at the catch point.

6. WR Jaime Ffrench

Jaime Ffrench continued to be a show-stopper, building on his On3 MVP Performance on Friday with another strong outing on day two. Ffrench wasted no time making his presence felt on Saturday, finding the end zone on his team’s first play from scrimmage, separating on a vertical route for a long score. Ffrench has been lethal on back shoulder targets in the red zone. His timing with quarterback and high school teammate Tramell Jones is spectacular. Ffrench is able to quickly turn and locate the football away from his frame, making the route virtually unguardable. He also showed very encouraging burst, taking a pass over the middle, making a defender miss and turning on the jets for a long gain. Ffrench has a case as the top pass catcher at the event to this point.

7. TE Mark Bowman (2027)

Mark Bowman was a machine in the red zone on day two of the OT7 Championship. If California Power was in the red zone, Bowman was the primary target. His hip fluidity and wiggle allowed him to consistently create separation. Bowman’s natural ball skills and strong hands allowed him to pluck the ball away from his frame and above the heads of defenders. He’s already a very comfortable route runner and is an effective vertical threat up the seam. Bowman was borderline unstoppable on Saturday and has arguably been the most productive tight end at the OT7 Championship to this point. – Cody Bellaire

8. QB Jonas Williams (2026)

Jonas Williams played in his first games of the weekend on day two of the OT7 Championship and made an immediate impact. The 2026 signal caller was dishing out completions at every level of the field. His ability to get the ball up and out quickly with velocity stood out. Williams can drive the ball with the best on hand in Tampa and is a consistent deep ball thrower. His plus touch and arm strength was on full display during day two of the OT7 Championship.

9. WR Vance Spafford (2026)

Vance Spafford was near the top of On3’s top performers after his stellar display on Friday evening and he continued his run of dominance again on day two of the OT7 Championship. His ability to get vertical and stack defenders at the line of scrimmage creates natural separation at the very beginning of the route. The initial quickness allows him get over the top of the defense and was on display as he scored multiple touchdowns on Saturday. Spafford has been the most targeted receiver for California Power through two days. We will see if he can continue his hot streak on the final day of the OT7 Championship on Sunday. – Cody Bellaire

10. Chris Henry Jr. (2026) – Ohio State

Chris Henry Jr. was productive on day two of the OT7 Championship making his presence felt at every level of the field. His hand strength and ability to attack the football made contested catches look simple even when blanketed. Henry Jr. was able to separate from defenders often on Saturda,y especially when his team needed it most for a late go-ahead touchdown in the penultimate game of the day. He makes playing the receiver position look easy with his fluid and smooth route-running. We wouldn’t be surprised to see him continue his impressive production into the final day of the OT7 Championship on Sunday. – Cody Bellaire
