You might not recognize these players' names, but if Wednesday's Spoto-Wesley Chapel  7-on-7 scrimmage was any indication, you'll be reading them a lot in the fall.

Spoto receiver Geronimo Allison and Wesley Chapel defensive back Chris Mattear were the two most dominant players on the field.

Allison, a 6-foot-4 senior, has the size and speed to make any catch. He had one of the afternoon's best players, soaring for a touchdown on a fade pass in the left corner of the end zone. He also intercepted a fourth-down pass on the sideline.

After being ineligible for the last two years, Allison looks like a legitimate Division I prospect.

Mattear sat out last year for personal reasons but is also developing well in the summer. He doesn't look like a rookie cornerback, even though he recently switched to that position from safety. Mattear had five interceptions, including a sliding catch on an overthrown ball.
