All-Oregon NFTC Team: The Underclassmen

Here's a look at the top 10 underclassmen from Oregon at the Nike Football Training Camp...

Top Ten Underclassmen

Benning Potoae
Defensive End, Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes (2015)
Really quick off the ball, and if there is anything he needs to do, it's just continue to add more strength- some of the more physical and athletic offensive lineman held their own against him. He's also in need of better technique, but that will come. What he's got already is an endless motor, great quickness and agility, and passion. He was leading the defensive lineman and getting them hyped up during the tug-of-war and the 1ons1 and was pretty fun to watch.

Dalton Schultz
Tight End, South Jordan (Utah) Bingham (2014)
The 6'5" 215lbs sophomore already holds an offer from Utah and will camp at Stanford this weekend. Schultz has the softest hands I have seen this spring and runs routes with a true ease. Schultz could be one of the top tight end prospects in the country in 2014.

K.J. Carta-Samuels
Quarterback, San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep (2014)
Carta-Samuels name should ring a bell for recruiting fans. His older brother quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels signed with Wyoming before ending up at Vanderbilt. Carta-Samuels might have had the strongest arm in the group and can put real zip on the ball. He is extremely mechnically sound and doesn't waste any motion.

Devante Downs
Running Back, Mountlake Terrace (Wash.) (2014)
Downs will probably end up on defense at the college level, but worked with the running backs this weekend. Downs is extremely physically developed and looks like a player ready to head to college. Downs has been able to maintain his athleticism while adding significant mass to his frame. He should be a highly recruited prospect in 2014..

Isaiah Brandt-Sims
Running Back, Wenatchee (Wash.) (2014)
Already 5'11", Brandt-Sims should continue to grow and could develop into a wide receiver down the road. He excelled catching the ball at 7on7 events earlier this spring.

Jordan Hoeim
Outside Linebacker, Wailuku (Hawaii) Baldwin (2014)
Hoeim was an unexpected standout. Hoiem is all of 6'4" 207lbs. He already holds an offer from Hawaii and should have a lot more by his senior year. Hoeim has an incredible frame and could easily add 30lbs without losing any speed. He has long arms and looks to be a perfect fit for the rush end position in a 3-4 defense.

Kaleb McGary
Offensive Line, Battle Ground (Wash.) (2014)
McGarry was one of the more physically impressive players, with huge feet, and quick feet, and long arms. He struggled in the 1on1s, especially technique-wise, but you can see a lot of upside there, and with a body that will only get thicker, he's definitely a player to remember in next year's class.

Chico McClatcher
Running Back, Federal Way (Wash.) (2015)
The 5'7" 150lbs prospect garnered attention last fall when he got carries for the undefeated Eagles as a freshman. McClatcher was behind Wyoming bound tailback D.J. May and should get the bulk of the carries this fall. McClatcher has elite quickness and unbelievable cutting ability..

Asan Neil-Evergin
Running Back, Lacey (Wash.) Timberline (2014)
Neil-Evergin is a diminutive running back that stood out for his explosiveness and effort. He will need to grow some to maximize his potential, but has FBS level athleticism.

Tyler Hilinski
Quarterback, Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame (2015)
Hilisnki doesn't have the height his brother does, but still has plenty of size to play the position.  His older brother won the MVP award, but the younger one could challenge for an MVP award down the road.
