RCS New Orleans: Five things to look for

MORE: Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour

NEW ORLEANS -- The Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour will head to East Jefferson High School in New Orleans this weekend and many top storylines are expected to emerge. Here are five things to watch for on Saturday.

1. Bayou State receiver battle

Who's the top wide receiver in the state of Louisiana? New Orleans (La.) Warren Easton Senior standout Tyron Johnson enters as the top receiver but he will be pushed by New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine four-star Stanley Morgan and Patterson, La. four-star Daylon Charlot who is committed to Alabama. Destrehan, La. wide receiver Kirk Merritt also has a very impressive offer list and 2016 star Stephen Sullivan from Donaldson, La. is already committed to LSU and is massive at 6-foot-6 and 210 pounds. It should be a great receivers group to watch.

2. Dylan Moses

The 2017 LSU commitment from Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab gets his own category for a reason. Every time we see Moses he looks bigger and stronger and he's projected to grow into a tall, big defensive end before all is said and done. The freshman sensation is always fun to watch and it will be interesting to see at which position or positions he decides to work out. He is arguably the biggest name at the camp and he's still three years away from his Signing Day.

3. Jashon Cornell competing down south

The defensive end from Saint Paul (Minn.) Cretin-Durham Hall is one of the top prospects in the country and perhaps the prospect who has the biggest rankings discrepancy across the industry right now. The 6-foot-3, 238-pounder is a consensus top 100 prospect and will be taking visits to LSU, Ole Miss and Mississippi State and wanted to compete at the New Orleans RCS to test his talents against players from the south. He's expected to dominate against a relatively weak offensive line group.

4. Youth movement

In addition to Sullivan and Moses, there are a ton of talented 2016 and 2017 prospects set to attend and compete at the camp. Quarterback Bladrick Veal will be slinging the football to Sullivan as well as 2016 running backs Devin White from Springhill (La.) North Webster and Tre Turner from New Orleans (La.) Holy Cross.

On defense, defensive tackles Edwin Alexander from Hammond (La.) St. Thomas Aquinas (LSU commit), Glen Logan from Destrehan, La. and George Lea from New Orleans (La.) Landry-Walker lead the way and cornerbacks Tre Jackson from Lab (Florida commitment) and Kristian Fulton from Metairie (La.) Rummel both have a lot of talent. Youth will be served at the camp as always.

5. Don't sleep on the DBs

In addition to Jackson and Fulton, there are many top defensive backs expected to attend as well. Four-star safety Hunter Dale from River Ridge (La.) John Curtis leads a deep group at his position and the cornerback position overall is very deep. The strength of this camp on offense is at wide receiver and on defense it is very likely the secondary.
