Under Armour Houston Camp Top Underclassmen

SPRING, Texas -- Factoring in performance in the drills and in the one-on-ones Scout examines the top underclassmen at Under Armour regional camp stop in Houston on Sunday.

DB Lejond Cavazos - Cibolo (Texas) Steele

The Class of 2020 prospect played on the sub-varsity team last year as the Knights were stacked with talent in the defensive backfield on its march to the state title game, but he has exploded onto the scene with strong camp showings over the past few weeks. He tested well at The Opening Dallas, but he may have performed even better in the one-on-ones at UA Houston. Offers have poured in from schools like Auburn, LSUOklahoma, and Tennessee

DE Nelson Ceaser - Ridge Point (Texas)

A rangy defensive end prospect who should be on more radars. There are a lot of players with a similar skill set getting top-tier offers, so look for things to really put pick up soon for Ceaser, who won the big man challenge. He already has P5 offers from schools like MississippiMissouri, and Texas Tech, but he could be on the verge of a major blow up nationally. 

OT Kenyon Green - Atascocita (Texas)

The LSU Tigers commit in the 2019 class certainly did not look like an underclassman or younger competitor in any way. He has the skills to play left tackle and he continues to get better and better each time we see him. At this camp he came out with a bit of a chip on his shoulder and was able to showcase why all of the top programs in the country would like him to suit up for them in college. He has been successful in the two biggest camps in the off-season and also played well against some top competition in pads versus 6A TXHSFB competition. Will be one of the top-rated OL prospects nationally in his class. Earned an invite to the Future 50. 

WR Arjei Henderson - Richmond (Texas) Travis

Henderson had a very strong day in the drills. The Oklahoma Sooners commitment is going to be one of the top-rated recruits in his class and he played with that swagger at the UA Camp. he was able to get open and he made some very tough catches with some of the nation's best defensive backs draped all over him in coverage. You can see why so many colleges have been on him early and extending him offers. 

DT Ishmael Sopsher - Amite (La.)

One of the most physically imposing prospects at the camp, Sophser was able to use his size to overpower offensive linemen. He earned an invitation to the Future 50 with a strong performance. He is playing a position that it is hard to find talent and he is one he has all of the skills that major colleges covet. He is explosive for his size. He already has offers from schools like AlabamaLSU Tigers, and Tennessee.

OL Kardell Thomas - Southern Lab (La.)

Not a prospect I was too familiar with coming into the camp, but after watching him on Sunday it was easy to see why he has been tabbed as an early four-star prospect on Scout and why a college like LSU stepped up to the plate with an early offer and promptly accepted his commitment. The foundation that Thomas and Green will build for the Tigers' 2019 recruiting efforts could be quite special. Quarterbacks and running back prospects will definitely take note. Thomas is massive in the upper body and plays with a mean streak. He was putting some top defensive tackles on their backs. Earned an invite to the Future 50.
