charles power hsby:Charles Power04/14/24


Brentwood, Tenn. – Dozens of prospects headed to Nashville for the next stop of the Under Armour Next Series – the seventh event of the year. The event featured several blue-chip prospects from the 2025 and 2026 cycles.

On3 was on hand at Brentwood Academy on Sunday to take in the action. Here are On3’s top performers from the day, headlined by a touted 2026 quarterback who has already pledged to a SEC program.

On3 MVP: QB Jared Curtis – Georgia (2026)

Jared Curtis entered the event with the reputation as one of the top pure arm talents in the 2026 and lived up to that lofty billing. On a blustery spring day, Curtis had zero issues delivering well-thrown passes with palpable velocity. The Nashville native’s throws cut through the wind. The ball jumps out of Curtis’ hand. We saw him uncork some beautiful throws on vertical routes during the 1-on-1 period. Curtis also showed the ability to locate his passes into tight windows on outbreaking routes. This setting largely confines quarterbacks to pure passing situations and the 6-foot-3.5, 225-pounder looked like a top arm talent. Curtis, who currently ranks as the No. 4 quarterback in the 2026 On300, committed to the Bulldogs in March.

2. QB Kamario Taylor – Mississippi State

Kamario Taylor earned strong consideration for the On3 MVP and could’ve easily gotten the nod. The Mississippi State pledge had an outstanding day, flashing a powerful arm, good natural mechanics and light feet. No quarterback on hand was more physically imposing. Taylor is a very well built 6-foot-3.5, 205 pounds and moved effortlessly through drills. We came away impressed with the arm talent. Despite still being relatively early on his developmental curve, Taylor has a concise throwing motion and consistently gets over the top of the football. He has very large hands and showed the ability to manipulate his throws and deliver tight spirals on a consistent basis. The Magnolia State native was consistent over the course of the day and went throw for throw with Jared Curtis in 1-on-1’s. Given what he showed on Sunday, along with a big junior season at Macon (Miss.) Noxubee County that saw him account for 4,081 yards and 60 touchdowns, it’s safe to say Taylor may have one of the highest upsides among 2025 signal callers.

3. WR Joakim Dodson – Tennessee

We didn’t see a wide receiver make more big plays during the 1-on-1 period at Under Armour Nashville than Joakim Dodson. The Tennessee pledge won in a number of ways. We saw him get vertical for a long touchdown. He elevated to high-point the ball, out-leaping a defensive back. The Memphis area standout also showed the ability to get open with change of direction. Dodson’s vertical bounce and strong hands allow him to play bigger than his size, listed at 6-foot, 185 pounds. He’s able to finish through contact and come down with tough grabs. In all, it was a strong showing for the in-state product.

4. IOL Isaac Sowells

Isaac Sowells was the top offensive lineman on hand at Under Armour Nashville. The Louisville (Ky.) Male standout was outstanding drills and 1-on-1’s, where he won every rep we saw. While he’s not the tallest offensive lineman at around 6-foot-1.5, Sowells is very well built with outstanding weight distribution and elite lower body flexibility. The NFL legacy was able to effortlessly redirect and stymie defensive linemen at the point of attack. He looks like an intriguing center prospect. Sowells has official visits scheduled for South Carolina (May 31), Kentucky (June 7), NC State (June 14) and Miami (June 21).

5. RB Jamarion Morrow

In a setting that is tailor made for his skill set as a skilled pass-catching running back/slot receiver, Jamarion Morrow didn’t disappoint. The Memphis area talent carved up linebackers during 1-on-1’s, winning nearly all of his reps that we saw. Morrow is a quick, loose athlete. He consistently broke of linebackers in space with his shake and lateral agility. We were impressed with the ball skills, as he caught the ball as well as any back in attendance. The On300 prospect has official visits set for Missouri (June 14) and Georgia (June 21).

6. S Bralan Womack (2026)

Bralan Womack made the most plays of any defensive back that we saw during Under Armour Nashville. The rising junior from Brandon (Miss.) Hartfield Academy came down with an interception, a pass breakup and several other strong plays in coverage. Womack has good size, coverage instincts and ability to track and make plays on the ball. He’s visited Ole Miss, Alabama and Ohio State this year.

7. LB Tyler Lockhart

In a setting that isn’t typically favorable for linebackers, Tyler Lockhart managed to make some nice plays while flashing intriguing upside. The Winona (Miss.) High product has a great frame with plus length. He moved well in drills and managed to make some plays in 1-on-1’s. Lockhart closed quickly on a route in the flats and later stayed in-phase defending a wheel route, leading to a pass breakup. The On300 prospect has an official visit set for Auburn (June 14), per the On3 Visit Center and is a lean towards Mississippi State according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.

8. DL Stephon Shivers – Georgia

Stephon Shivers looked to be the largest defensive lineman on hand, perhaps by a good margin. The 6-foot-4, 350-pounder looks like a pure nose tackle at the next level. Shivers was a load for offensive linemen to handle in 1-on-1’s winning with pure power via his bull rush. Once the Humboldt (Tenn.) High product generated a head of steam, he was able to walk offensive linemen deep into the backfield. While he’ll need to continue improving his quickness and overall movement skills, there’s no doubt the Bulldogs have a big, physical presence in the fold.

9. DL Ethan Utley – Tennessee

Ethan Utley showcased versatile pass rush ability at Under Armour Nashville. The local product won most if not all of his reps in 1-on-1’s with a nice combination of initial quickness, active hands and functional strength. Utley has mismatch ability as an interior pass rusher along with the skill set to be an edge setter on the outside. The On300 prospect committed to Tennessee on March 28.

10. WR Derion Talbert

After Joakim Dodson, Derion Talbert made the most plays among the wide receivers. The 5-foot-9, 150-pounder had several touchdowns during 1-on-1’s. His quickness and ability to separate downfield gave defensives backs issues throughout the day. The Lexington (Ky.) Frederick Douglass product reports an offer from Miami (Ohio).

Additional notes

+ Tennessee quarterback commit George MacIntyre was the highest-ranked signal caller on hand. MacIntyre had an up and down day. He was able to deliver some nice passes downfield and while rolling to his left, but also had some difficulties consistently spinning the football and delivering with velocity in the windy conditions.

+ Alabama running back pledge Anthony Rogers used his speed and quickness to separate from linebackers in 1-on-1’s. Rogers showed a good burst and ability to get upfield on vertical routes. He can continue to improve his ball skills as a pass-catcher.

+ Michigan tight end commit Eli Owens caught the ball well in drills and made a few plays in 1-on-1’s. Owens has a good pass-catching skill set as a H-back/full back type.

+ At defensive back, corner Michael Igbinoghene showed some high-end athleticism and closing speed, which isn’t a surprise given his background as a top track athlete.

+ Kalvin Meadows, Sam Browder, Jarvis Strickland and Chauncey Gooden were four offensive linemen who had good reps over the courses of the day.
