The Top Under the Radar Prospects Who Performed at UnderArmour Dallas

CEDAR HILL, Texas -- Factoring in performance in the drills and in the one-on-ones Scout examines some prospects on the rise at the Under Armour regional camp stop in the Dallas area on Sunday.

Trace Clopton, 2018 OL, Brookhaven (Miss.)

This offensive lineman really caught our eye because while he is a bit undersized at 6-foot-2, 285 pounds, he is not affected by that. he has good technique and a strong back. He uses his height to his advantage to outmaneuver defenders and win the pad level battle. Played guard and center, but love his upside as a center on the next level. More schools should be giving Clopton a look. He picked up a Marshall offer yesterday and now has four D1 offers.  

Dekalen Goodson, 2018 OLB, Tyler (Texas) John Tyler

The linebacker group was one of the highlights of the camp, up and down the camp roster there were very talented linebackers and they were making plays. Goodson is very athletic and we feel like he has a very high upside for development once he arrives in college ad he was able to display all of the requisite quickness and coverage skills that we liked on tape. Has offers from schools like Houston and Mississippi State and a couple of others. 

Demarcus Marshall, 2018 OL, Grand Prairie (Texas)

Get to know this 6-foot-3, 335-pound barrel-chested monster as he had his breakout performance on Sunday and has the type of power and strength that will translate to the highest levels of college competition. He worked out at right tackle and was able to overpower defensive ends and also showed that he was quick enough to stand up to a speed rush. P5 offers are already in from schools like Colorado, KansasKansas State, and Texas Tech, but he is not yet rated at all. This will soon change. 

Oliver Nasilai, 2018 ILB, Springdale (Ark.) Har-Ber

Nasilai is a physical inside/middle linebacker prospect who packs a punch at the point of attack and shows the ability to fly sideline to sideline, especially against the run. Nasilai's only offer so far is BYU. Expect that to change this spring. He's one of the top defensive prospects in Arkansas for 2018.

Nathan Page, 2018 WR, Little Rock (Ark.) Robinson

Three FBS programs have offered Page, but he surprisingly has not yet picked up a Power Five conference offer. That should change this spring. Page has gotten attention on both sides of the ball and could play receiver or defensive back in college, though we like him best with the ball in his hands, where he can be electric as a pass-catcher or return man. Page is one of the best players in Arkansas regardless of position.

Jonathan Shepherd, 2018 WR, Kilgore (Texas)

In a field full of good receivers, Shepherd stood out and has solidified himself as one of the very best sleeper prospects in the entire state of Texas. The 6-foot-4, 182-pounder won several 1-on-1 reps as his frame and top-end speed give him a dangerous combination. He has made recent unofficial stops in at LSU and Texas.
