Atlanta – 2022 Rival Camp Series It ends on Friday Rival Underclassman Challenge Some of America’s best young football prospects in Atlanta have made the trip to show off against outstanding players from different parts of the country. Check out this breakdown of today’s positional MVP.
Quarterback MVP: Kamari McClellan
The loaded quarterback group has multiple four-star prospects but McClellan was the most consistent from start to finish. Outside of Alabama the 2024 rival has a smooth delivery of 250 prospects and has shown impressive accuracy during part of the camp position drills. McClellan also has one of the best performances in the long toss competition. Between 1-on-1 time and skill demonstrations, McClellan was on target and did a great job of exposing receivers against tight coverage. Tennessee, Georgia, Ole Miss and Alabama have hosted him recently and each of these teams is considered a serious competitor to his promise.
Running back MVP: Jaden Scott
Scott rose to the top of a talented team of running backs, showing resilience during blitz pickup drills and the ability to run intelligent routes during one-on-one. The 2024 back out from Georgia may not be a complete burner but he showed sudden and great footwork during the position drill. Scott’s quickness helped him to make one break after another with the linebackers and it made it easier for the quarterbacks to get him the ball. On the Downfield route, Scott did a great job avoiding the linebackers as they tried to disrupt his time. South Carolina, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Duke Hall Scott are some of the programs recently visited.
Wide receiver MVP: Winston Watkins
The race for the receiver MVP award was really tough but Watkins went out of competition. The 2025 Texas A&M promise is so explosive that hardly any defensive backs from the line of explosion can even stick to it. Watkins does a good job of running the flashy route and meshing the defensive back through subtle shoulder or hip movements. The quarterbacks would love to pair up with him because they knew they would have big windows to throw the ball. Ohio State, Texas and Georgia have all offered Watkins since early May and he wore Clemson gloves to Camp Friday.

Offensive line MVP: Eddie Pierre-Lewis
In these events often the inner linemen could not win the MVP but Pierre-Lewis was outstanding. He narrowly defeated 2025 lineman Douglas Otuke for the award but won the trophy by literally throwing around some defensive linemen he faced during the one-on-one. Pierre-Lewis still has some technical tactics to smooth out but he was so effective against even the best defensive linemen. Once he got his hands on the upcoming pass racer, the representative became the best Pierre-Lewis was so strong and he could control where the defensive lineman went. He also won a bench press competition, including 26 225-pound raps. Teams across the country are working hard to bring him to campus before the start of the season.
Defensive Line MVP: Marquis Lightfoot
Lightfoot was not one of the headliners who came to the event on Friday but he must have left as one. He was already set to rise to the local rankings in Illinois during the next update, and he justified that move with the way he played in 1-on-1 seconds. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound tall, lightfoot has the ability to bend around the edges when running outside and knows how to use his hands to prevent aggressive linemen from slowing him down. His strength surprised some offensive linemen, and his ability to quickly close the gap between him and the offensive lineman made it difficult for them to adjust their hands or slide in front of him. Notre Dame, Illinois and Michigan are some of the programs that Lightfoot is hiring.
Linebacker MVP: Dylan Williams
Williams and Sammy Brown had neck and neck for the MVP award but Williams was a bit better during the one-on-one. Williams was able to force a worse pass from the quarterback because his long arm allowed him to throw a pass that the running backs and quarterbacks did not think he would get. The USC has done a great job of covering the area of promise as well. This is not something that linebackers are often asked to do in game situations but Williams was very effective when defending wheel routes and seam routes, coming down with at least one obstacle and dropping multiple passes. Georgia, Alabama, Florida and Oregon are some of the teams that are trying to keep Williams away from the Trojans.

Defensive back MVP: Christian Dunbar-Hawkins
The defensive back could be the deepest position in Friday camp, which makes Dunbar-Hawkins’ performance even more impressive. Rival from outside California faced a challenge with almost every receiver on Friday using a combination of 250 probability strategies and instincts. Dunbar-Hawkins did a great job of making sure the receivers were running on the route and jumping in front of the receiver to make sure they couldn’t get close. He had multiple chances to block but was able to bat farther than that. Some major competitors for Texas A&M, Georgia and USC Dunbar-Hawkins.
