WENTZVILLE, Mo. — Six Star Football held its Camp & Combine showcase event on Sunday at Heartland Park outside of St. Louis, drawing several talented prospects from across the region.
Here, we look at several of the day’s most talented DE prospects.
Elijah Bryson, 5’10, 198, DE, 2023, DeSmet @elijah_bryson05
Power Ball: 28, Broad Jump: 6’11, Shuttle: 5.03, 40-Yard Dash: 5.88
Bryson is not the biggest defensive end but he certainly is one that can rely on some good speed off the outside edge for DeSmet. A player that is one of the super sophomores for DeSmet and one that we think has a very bright future ahead. Has the skills to be a natural play maker on the outside edge and is a player that will look to be in the mix of defensive standouts for the 2021 season. Has a very lean and muscular build, could be one of the top ‘23 athletes on the team and is a hot prospect to take some notice of for sure.
Tyler Gant, 6’3, 262, DL, 2023, CBC @TyGant44
Power Ball: 32, Broad Jump: 6’10, Shuttle: 5.06, 40-Yard Dash: 5.50
Gant was very good at the 6Star Football Combine in St. Louis and tied for third best broad jump mark with a distance of 8’0. Had a very respectable power ball toss of 32, and is a player that was able to show some nice athletic skills along with some good footwork at the combine. Have to love the talent the CBC super sophomore DL Tyler Gant brings to the table with a good frame also at 6-3, 262 pounds he can be a beast on the Defensive front for the talented CBC defense. A big time future and a player that has a nice motor, we think sky is the limit for the big and impressive play maker from CBC. Gant has already landed an offer from D1 Kansas, the first of many to come.
Jeremiah Hardnett, 5’7, 261, DL/OL, 2023, O’Fallon Towns. (Ill.) @jeremiahhardne1
Power Ball: 35, Broad Jump: 6.8, Shuttle: 4.97, 40-Yard Dash: 5.30
Hardnett tossed the powerball a distance of ‘35, very impressive and among the best among all DE in the ‘23 class. Is always great to have some of the best of the best from the Metro East area in Illinois, and we really like the talented super sophomore from O’Fallon Township in 5-7, 261 pound Jeremiah Hardnett, a big man that has power and toughness that will take him a long way and should make him one of the players to watch among Illinois lineman in the St. Louis area.
Jahkai Lang, 6’3, 225, DE, 2023, Troy @Jahkai0
Power Ball: 32, Broad Jump: 9’1, Shuttle: 4.35
One of the most active and impressive pure athletes in the super sophomore class that attended the 6Star Football Combine in St. Louis, Lang showed up with the top mark among all Defensive Ends at the combine with a broad jump of 9’1. Lang was also second among all Defensive Ends at the combine in the shuttle with a very impressive time of 4.35, no doubt a player that really moves well on the field and can make a lot of plays most DE’s couldn’t get to or make. Lang also racked up 1st Team All-Conference/All-District honors this season.
Jamond Mathis, 6’1, 202, DE, 2023, Duchesne @mathisjamond
Power Ball: 34, Broad Jump: 8’10, Shuttle: 4.56, 40-Yard Dash: 5.04
Mathis is a good one with a 6-1, 202 pound frame, this super sophomore could end up becoming one of the top stock risers in the ‘23 class in the St. Louis area. Mathis was among the best of the best for Defensive Ends at the 6Star Football Combine as he tied for third best broad jump at 8’10 and also had the fifth best shuttle time, recording a time of 4.56. A player that can do it all and do it all well, Mathis has a load of talent and has the makings of being a big time name in the ‘23 class. One of the hottest looking class of ‘23 play makers in the St. Louis area, Mathis is the real deal.
Ashton Noble, 6’2, 247, DE, 2023, Roxana (Ill.) @ashtonnoble_
Power Ball: 39,Broad Jump: 8’1, Shuttle: 4.94, 40-Yard Dash: 5.31
A super sophomore that really showed out at the 6Star Football Combine in St. Louis with the third best mark among all Defensive ends in the power ball (39). No doubt a big time explosive player and at 6-2, 247 pounds he has both size and power already, plus a long and athletic frame that colleges should be very impressed by. Taking a look at a very impressive Illinois player from Roxana, Noble is one of those rush ends that can make big plays and make them often, only a super sophomore ‘23, Noble has some very big potential and is a player that is primed for a huge junior season in 2021.
Darius Pahmahmie, 6’1, 280, DL, 2024, Liberty North @PahmahmieDarius
Power Ball: 28, Broad Jump: 7’1, Shuttle: 5.70, 40-Yard Dash: 5.70
A very impressive true freshman and the lone defensive lineman at the 6Star Football Combine among Defensive Lineman that competed as a true freshman, no doubt the class of ‘24 big man held his own and is a player that should be looking forward to a very fine career for Liberty North. Pahmahmie is a big 6-1, 280 pounds and only a freshman, so you can see just how impressive his size already is. Is a player that we expect to get some early attention or get one the radars soon for his size and power. Has a load of potential and promise and we think he is a must see in the ‘24 class.
Kian Payne, 6’3, 235, DE, 2024, Aquinas (Kan.) @KianPayne4
Power Ball: 31, Broad Jump: 7’3, Shuttle: 5.13, 40-Yard Dash: 5.60
One of the youngest defensive ends at the 6Star Football Combine, a class of ‘24 fab freshman from perennial powerhouse Aquinas, Payne is a player that has some very impressive potential and is a player that also has great size as a freshman, already at 6-3, 235 pounds, Payne could end up being a scary good player in the next three seasons. WIth a powerball of 31 already, the freshman showed he has the power to be a force to watch out for in the coming years.
Sa’o Siavi’i, 6’0, 229, DE, 2023, Aquinas (Kan.) @34SAOSIAVII
Power Ball: 40.5, Broad Jump: 8’7, Shuttle: 4.50, 40-Yard Dash: 4.85
One of the top ranked players in the Kansas class of ‘23 by 6Star Football, Siavi’i has all the makings of being a major D1 recruit with major size and power, plus mobility at a very young age. The elite Aquinas High prospect showed at the 6Star Football Combine why he was one of the best of the best. Siavi’i had the best 40 yard dash time among all Defensive Ends in attendance with a time of 4.85. No doubt that speed is impressive, you have to be impressed by his ability off the edge to get into the backfield in a hurry and be a major pressure man for the Aquinas defense. Sa’o had the second best power ball toss among all DEs, with a very impressive mark of 40.5, and also had the fourth best shuttle time as well among DEs with a time of 4.50. A player that has huge potential and one exciting play maker to know in the Kansas super sophomore class.
Morgan Simmons, 5’11, 215, DE, 2023, Aquinas (Kan.) @morgansimmons24
Power Ball: 34, Broad Jump: 8’5, Shuttle: 4.90, 40-Yard Dash: 5.04
Aquinas really had some big time impressive defensive players attend the 6Star Football Combine in St. Louis, and no doubt one of those most impressive up and coming Defensive end prospects has to be Morgan Simmons, a big time 5-11, 215. Simmons had a very impressive power ball toss of 34, a broad jump at 8’5 and was a player that you could tell has an impressive power build, already a 215 pound DE that has some speed and power, Simmons could be a name you hear a lot from in the coming years for the Aquinas team.
Tristan Tran, 5’8, 180, DE, 2024, Free State (Kan.) @Tristan03561415
Power Ball: 25, Broad Jump: 6’5, Shuttle: 5.31, 40-Yard Dash: 5.70
Tran is one of the freshman defensive ends that competed and looked like a good looking fab freshman to keep an eye on in the future for the Free State program. Free State graduated some nice talent this year and returns some very nice talent too, no doubt Tristan Tran will be a guy that will look to put his name in rotation and be a force on the outside edge for the defense. A name to know and a name to watch out for.
Marc Williams, 5’8, 227, DE, 2023, CBC @marc92w
Power Ball: 28, Broad Jump: 6’11, Shuttle: 5.43, 40-Yard Dash: 6.00
One of the super sophomores from the St. Louis area that looks to be an up and coming prospect to know. Williams is a player that will look the jump in the mix in the trenches for the talented CBC team and be a force to watch out for. A young player, but a very good player, Williams has the potential to be a very high stock riser in the super sophomore class and is a guy that will look to be a big impact maker for CBC.
