Rivals football database now includes sixth-graders

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

After a couple of impressive performances at a Rivals football camp in Boston, two sixth-graders have been added to the site’s recruiting database.

Tyson Thornton (a 5-11, 170-pound running back) and Daron Bryden (a 5-2, 105-pound pro-style quarterback) — both in the Class of 2021 — caught the eye of organizers and will be actively followed by Rivals.

The two were more than 150 who turned out for the NextGen camp despite a massive snow storm. The NextGen camps, for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders, is “committed to identifying the next generation of great football players,” Rivals says.

No word on where the boys are leaning, but there’s still plenty of time.
