Scout Dishes out a Handful of Underclassmen From the Opening Miami That Really Proved Their Worth All Afternoon

DAVIE, Fla. -- Scout was in attendance for the Opening Miami Regional, and lists the top five underclassmen from the talent-loaded event in South Florida.

Top Five Underclassmen (Alphabetical Order)

Samuel Brooks, 2018 OLB, Miami (Fla.) Northwestern

Brooks did a significant amount of damage during the Opening Orlando, resulting in a spot on Scout's list of top underclassmen, and did nothing but boost his stock once again after lacing up the cleats in nearby Davie this past weekend.

The 6-foot-1.5, 193-pound sophomore out of Miami Northwestern posted a Nike Football Rating of 106.26, placing him fifth overall at one of the more talent-loaded camps across the map. Brooks, who's played with his hand in the dirt at defensive end, has done a good job of utilizing his finesse style against some of the more heavy-footed offensive linemen.

John Dunmore, 2019 WR, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Cardinal Gibbons.

Dunmore, who's been under consideration for a fourth star on Scout, is a bouncy pass catcher that's also equipped with intriguing length for an up-and-coming receiver. At 6-foot-2, 172 pounds, Dunmore is one of those pass catchers that makes things look effortless at times.

The 2019 prospect posted a Nike Football Rating of 100.77, placing him in the top 15 overall for the afternoon. He was consistent when stretching the field during one-on-ones, and then ended the day with an offer from the in-state Florida Gators.

Leonard Manuel, 2020 WR/TE, Ocala (Fla.) Vanguard.

Regardless of what position he plays nearly three years from now, Manuel is an elite talent that's tagged as one of the can't-miss prospects for the class of 2020. He checks in with that top-notch size at roughly 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, and has a chiseled frame that should really expand nicely throughout his prep career.

He was fluid when releasing off the line and getting into his routes, and showed good body control for a prospect of his stature. Wide receiver, tight end and defensive end are positions he'll continue to generate interest for, but it was on the offensive side of the ball where Manuel turned heads.

Kenny McIntosh, 2019 four-star RB/ATH, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School

A blue-chip prospect with brothers currently strapping up the pads for Miami (Fl) and Notre Dame, McIntosh backed up his reputation this past weekend when he represented the running backs with positional MVP honors.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound McIntosh was one of the more physically gifted running backs in attendance, despite being just a sophomore, but also showed off his agility throughout the drill portion of the camp. The four-star prospect also looked comfortable when chipping in as a pass catcher out of the backfield.

Keontra Smith, 2019 safety, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna

Smith, who's leaning towards the Auburn Tigers early on, performed exceptionally well throughout the morning drills. He flashed nimble feet and was under control when going through ladder drills, but also ranked in the top 15 overall with a Nike Football Rating of 100.95.

The 5-foot-10.5, 189-pound safety was one of the more competitive kids that continued to climb to the front of the line for additional repetitions. A flurry of Power Five schools have already dished out offers to this standout defensive back.

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
