Texas 7v7: DII — Emerging Sleepers

Scout.com analysts break down the top sleepers from the first day of the Texas State 7-on-7 Championships.

DB Joseph Clark (5-9 170) - Tyler Chapel Hill - 2014

I did not get the chance to see Joseph Clark live in action and I still do not know what role fits him  most perfectly in college, but I really enjoy what he brings to the game when he steps in the field. Great quickness and anticipation. Will be a good D1 pickup.

S Mookie Carlile (6-1 185) - Stephenville - 2014

Stephenville (Tex.) safety Mookie Carlile impressed on Thursday, displaying an ability to break up the pass and pick off the opponent. Carlile is a recent UTEP commit, and though the Miners' offer is the only one he currently holds, expect more to soon head his way.

WR Ian Sadler (5-10 194) - Argyle - 2014

Ian Sadler may be one of the most overlooked prospects in the state- and that's with an average of 20.5 yards per catch last season for more than 1,000 yards and 27 total touchdowns AND a commitment to Texas Tech. What a steal for the Red Raiders as the physical 5-foot-10, 194-pounder put on a display Thursday, weaving his way up and down the 7on7 field, showcasing his impressive footwork and hands and ability to out-body defenders in the endzone. Sadler will be one to follow this fall.

OLB/S Wesley Thompson (6-1 190) - Tyler Chapel Hill - 2015

He has shown some blazing fast times at the camps he attended this past off season and he looked solid in coverage today for Chappell Hill as well. There are a few smaller Division I programs looking at him. Don't be surprised if he picks up a couple after a few games this upcoming season.

LB Somari Wright (6-1 210) - Cameron Yoe - 2014

Wright is kind of an interesting prospect in that he was on a ton of radars, including Texas's as a second-choice linebacker following a stellar junior season that saw Wright help Yoe to a state championship. But Wright is still kind of where he was before … on the radar but without the major offers that it appeared he might get. Wright has a thick, muscled frame and might be best playing middle linebacker, despite the fact that he lacks ideal size for the position. But as a football player, he's awfully good.
