Congratulations to Next Level Athletix 2017 QB Jaylon Banks from Oswego, IL. Banks announced today that he has been offered a football scholarship from the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. We recently caught up with Banks at the Chicago Showcase, where he felt right at home doing what he enjoys best, spinning the ball. Banks was extremely impressive displaying great arm strength and effortlessly hitting his receivers deep. He credits his superior footwork to his QB instructor, Greg Holcomb founder of Holcomb stated at the Chicago Showcase that Banks should do well this season on the camp circuit because of his great technique and his commitment to the position.

Banks reported on the Sound Mind Sound Body Talk Show this week that he will possibly attend three of their six city camp tours in Detroit, Houston and Atlanta. He said “it’s about competing outside of my city.” Keep your eyes on Jaylon Banks this summer and continue to follow him this season @JayAlpha15banks.

1-On-1's This Week Under The Keen Eye Of Taylor Scouting

Next Level Group Training is a high energy, competitive training environment where High School-level QB's and Skill Position players learn critically important position-specific mechanics and techniques to instill confidence and gain maximum output on the field. And with the elite skill player talent on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, competitive 1-on-1's and half skeleton sessions allow our athletes to be more prepared than most athletes. 

This Sunday Next Level Athletes will train and compete under the keen eye of Randy Taylor, Founder and CEO of Taylor Scouting, one of the more respected recruiting coordinator services in the country. Randy has over 30 years in the business and is an excellent resource to help athletes and parents understand the recruiting landscape, evaluation process and a transparent view into what lies ahead in the next 2, 3, 4 years.

While we will allow athletes in the classes of 2021 and 2022 train this Sunday, only those athletes in High School classes of 2020 and older will be able to compete in the last hour to hour and 15 minutes of the training. During that 2nd half of the session, Randy will be watching Next Level Athletes compete against one another in half skelly and 1-on-1's. And we only want to have our High School athletes participate. Youth QB's & skill players will receive a discount this week to account for the limited training time.

To maintain a high coach to athlete ratio and to allow Randy to get a good view of all of our High School Quarterbacks, we are capping the Quarterback number this week at 15. QB's in the classes of 2020, 2019, 2018 & 2017 must RSVP by sending a text to 773-615-5060 or email to to attend. We have already received RSVP's from our post on social media, so please reserve your slot right away.

The coaches Next Level are very grateful to have the opportunity to coach, train and mentor the phenomenal young men who are a part of our program. So as a thank you to you the athletes, we will be giving a $100 scholarship to 1 athlete who will receive a single season pass to Randy Taylor Scouting.

Oak Park (Ill.) River Forest junior quarterback prospect Jeremy Hunt (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) is making quite an impression so far this season in leading the Huskies (2-0) to a terrific start. Get to know yet another Prospect to Watch here.

"This is my first year as a starter at the varsity level," Hunt said. "It took me a few plays in the first game before I felt comfortable out there. It seemed like once I got into the flow of the game it all started to click and it's been going well so far this season. It's been pretty exciting."

Hunt, a three sport athlete (football baseball basketball) at Oak Park-River Forest talked about his latest recruiting news.

"I still haven't heard too much from schools for now and I plan to get some of my video out soon. My dream schools would be either Ohio State or Michigan State. I just always loved Ohio State going back to when I was a little kid. I was able to visit Michigan State this past summer with my 7on7 team. I saw the campus and the facilities at Michigan State and it was just really impressive."

Hunt also talked about what he feels he does well and what area's he needs to improve upon.

"I think that I throw it pretty well. I can make good reads and I also can read opposing defenses pretty well. I try to be smart with the football and take pride in making the right decisions. I worked hard this off season on improving my accuracy, footwork and just getting stronger. I'm just planning to improve my overall game this off season."

EDGY's Take on Jeremy Hunt: A kid who I saw on film this summer working with QB Coach Greg Holcomb and Next Level Athletix. Great physical tools and size and has the look and feel of a kid who could wind up being a major level recruit. I'm very excited to see where things go with Hunt over the next few months and wouldn't be shocked to see him start to add offers sooner rather than later.
