PPI Showcase camp in Finland Sunday, July 19

Brandon Collier and the Premier Players International crew are headed to the Helsinki Velodrome in Finland Sunday, July 19 for a PPI Finland Showcase event.

Players registration is 12 noon (Finnish time) and the camp winds up at 3 pm.

This is fourth year for PPI and Collier as they scour Europe and the rest of the world for football talent and assist players find their way to major American football colleges.

Collier launched the DreamChasers tour in 2017 to help young athletes.

On the first DreamChasers tour, Collier packed 13 of Europe’s top young football players into a bus, then made stops at five Division I schools and a handful of other scouting combines.

That was three years ago. Last year, Collier took 43 players with him to audition for 12 university programs including Alabama and Clemson. He’s also helped send players like Germany’s Julius Weischoff, a 6-6, 250-pound former mogul skier turned defensive end, to Michigan; Germany’s Alex Ehrensberger, a 6-7 240-pound defensive end, to Notre Dame and Sweden’s Viktor Wikstrom, a 6-3, 225-pound tight end with 4.5 speed to West Virginia.

Penn State, meanwhile, sent its coaching staff to Germany spring 2019 where they signed Joseph Darkwa, a 6-5, 270-pound defensive lineman. And TCU has landed Alexander Honig, a 6-5, 230-pound quarterback with a 38-inch vertical.
