1. ROCCO BECHT
After a second consecutive Camp Rivals MVP victory, Rocco Becht is in line for a stock increase in the next leaderboard update. Iowa State’s commitment has always been excellent throughout the competition, becoming the best pitcher in the group early on and never letting go.
Becht has fast, efficient and repeatable delivery that produces consistent football with every throw. It throws with excellent velocity, and does nothing in terms of precision either. Beyond his physical tools, Becht also displays natural leadership characteristics. He set the tone for his post at Miami Rivals Camp in April, and again last week Five Star Challenge.

2. DANTE MOORE
After a slow start, Detroit Class 2023 quarterback Dante Moore finished strong and threw just as well as one of the quarterbacks at the end of the day. It took the four-star a little while to find its rhythm in the first part of Thursday’s competition. A two-year incumbent who led Martin Luther King to a state title in his first year, Moore is at his best when the pressure is greatest. The one-on-one session was the most intense part of the camp and that’s when Moore was the most impressive.
His recruitment is hotly contested, with local schools in Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame battling national competitors Auburn, Florida State and Oregon.
3. JC FRENCH
JC French of Georgia was arguably the most technically sound of any quarterback in the Five Star Challenge. Currently without obligation with offers of Freedom, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest, the French obviously had years of quarterback coaching.
His footwork is clean and efficient, he carries the ball in an ideal position and has a good point of high relief. French’s performance is a bit long, but for the most part he had consistent good football. In individual sessions he proved decisive with football and kicked off with good timing.
4. CADE CLUB
It has been an eventful day for Clemson rider Cade Klubnik, who is still recovering from a shoulder injury suffered at the end of his junior season. On basic dropbacks where he was throwing at a fixed target, no one looked better than Klubnik.
However, when additional difficulty levels were added to the equation, the results were inconsistent. During the one-on-one, Klubnik struggled to put too much or too little air on his passes, which affected when the ball got to his receiver. The talent was evident, but not as polished as we had hoped mid-season.

5. JADYN DAVIS
It must have been intimidating for the class of 2024 Jadyn Davis to enter the Five Star Challenge and compete against the best students of the upper class. But if South Carolina’s freshman was nervous, he didn’t let it show.
From the start Davis looked comfortable and never rushed his throws. He has natural, fluid movement and easy power in his arm. Davis also showed he can spot his deep ball well, dropping two passes into the deep net during the passing competition and narrowly missing with the other two.
