Vote: Who was the top performer from Under Armour NEXT Miami 2024 camp?

More than 100 athletes partook in the Sunday morning camp down in South Florida

Last Sunday morning down in South Florida, hundreads of athletes gathered to take part in the Under Armour NEXT Miami camp.

The origin of the athletes on hand ranged from all over the Sunshine State, with many of the top players from the 2025 through 2026 classes.

There was no shortage of talent on hand as the camp featured many players that were standouts from the 2023 season and some that could continue to bloom this spring and well into the summer.

SBLive Sports Florida compiled a list down below of the players that stood out based on coverage of the camp.

Plenty of worthy names are on this list, so be sure to vote in our poll for which top standout from the Under Armour NEXT Miami you believe emerged as the top performer. Voting will close on March 22nd, 11:59 p.m. 

Editor’s note: Our corresponding poll is intended to be fun, and we do not set limits on how many times a fan can vote during the competition. This poll is specifically for fans to vote on the players that have been nominated and in no way discredits any other player that may not be mentioned in our poll.

Here are the nominees: 

Jordan Durham, QB, Zarephath Academy: Standing out at the camp helps Durham's stock heading into his senior campaign. Durham last season threw for 2,104 yards and 16 touchdowns to just four interceptions. 

Nae'shaun Montgomery, WR, Miami Central: Now joining one of the top programs in the state, Montgomery is off to a solid start during the off-season. Montgomery last season at Cardinal Newman caught 30 passes for 451 yards and five scores. 

Shawn Simeon, RB, Naples: Displaying his speed at the running back position was something that wowed folks in attendance at the camp. The Golden Eagles' tailback was terrific in 2023, rushing for 2,040 yards and scoring 27 touchdowns. 

Jayvan Boggs, WR, Cocoa: If you didn't know who Boggs was going into the camp, well, you must be living under a rock. The Ohio State commitment helped Cocoa win a Class 2S state championship, surpassing over 1,000 yards receiving. 

Winston Watkins, WR, First Baptist Academy of Naples: Watkins helped make a big difference once he arrived at First Baptist Academy. He looked smooth running routes against defensive backs and remains one of the state's best at the position heading into 2024. 

Floyd Boucard, DL, Miami Central: Could Boucard be the next great Miami Central defensive lineman? Following the line of players like Reuben Bain and Armondo Blount has to be somewhat motivating for Boucard as he impressed a lot of people last weekend. 

Derrek Cooper, RB, Chaminade-Madonna: Maybe the Lions will run the ball a little more with a back like Cooper in the backfield? No more Jeremiah Smith or Cedrick Bailey, but Cooper showed out at the camp. Will be a South Florida running back to keep an eye on. 

Caleb Harris, OL, St. Thomas Aquinas: A staple of any St. Thomas Aquinas football team is stout offensive line play. That's where Harris comes in as the offensive lineman helped pave the way for over 5,000 yards of offense in 2023.  

Kerby Vital, OL, West Boca Raton: You've got to love the size of a kid like Vital. The Bulls' offensive lineman stands 6-foot-3, 275 pounds and will be one of the best among the Class of 2026. 

Adam Balogoun, LB, Benjamin: Just a sophomore linebacker last season, Balogoun led the Buccaneers in tackles. Making 64 tackles and 12 of them going for a loss, the backer was a standout among the rest at the UA Miami camp. 

Cortez Mills, WR, Homestead: From making acrobatic catches over would be defenders to just creating plenty of separation from defensive backs at the camp, Mills is proving he's one of the best receivers of the 2025 class. He had a big 2023 campaign with the Broncos and much is expected this fall. 

Myron Charles, DL, Port Charlotte: Difficult to block for any offensive lineman, the defensive stalwart stood out among his peers. Charles last season for the Pirates tallied 29 tackles and 9.5 went for a loss.
