OT7: First Rosters Revealed for Overtime’s 7-on-7 Football League

Over 70 4- and 5-star recruits will take part in the inaugural season of OT7, including 2024 No. 1 QB Jadyn Davis.

In June out in Las Vegas, the world of prep football welcomes a new and innovative player — OT7, a seven-on-seven amateur competition founded by Overtime and backed by former NFL MVP Cam Newton will feature a long list of elite-level prospects split into 18 teams.

On Thursday, OT7 made its first roster reveal, and much like big sister basketball program Overtime Elite, this is a star-studded affair. All told, OT7 boasts:

  • 19 5-star prospects
    • Includes 2023’s No. 1 WR Brandon Inniss and No. 1 DB Cormani Mcclain, plus 2024 No. 1 QB Jadyn Davis and No. 1 WR Jeremiah Smith
  • Over 50 4-star prospects
  • Over 70 3-star prospects

The full, finalized list each team’s participating players is still to come — but for now, let’s roll through the highlights and get to know the OT7 rosters.
