Who Are Some of the Top Offensive Sleepers in the the Midlands Region?

Scout goes position-by-position to identify some prospects who currently don't have Power Five conference offers but could by the time signing day rolls around.

QB: Aaron Allen

The recent Louisiana Tech commit from Fort Bend (Texas) Ridge Point has 16 offers, but he is the perfect fit for today's style of offense and has plenty of arm to be a success. TXHSFB fans will get to know his name even more this season as Ridge Point could contend for a state title. We really love his poise in the pocket.

RB: SaRodorick Thompson

Thompson really passes the eye ball test and he could even get some looks on the defensive side of the football, but guys who are put together and play like him are not too often left out of the P5 mix. Bowling Green and San Diego State have offered the Carrollton (Texas) Ranchview RB and both of those programs have a keen eye for Texas-based talent.

WR:  Danny Gray

There is not any question about the talent that Gray possesses. The Dallas (Texas) Madison wideout is one of the most talented prospects in the state and has a great blend of size and speed. There may be a question surrounding his eligibility next season and that may be giving some schools pause if he does have NCAA clearinghouse issues.

ATH/Slot: Nathan Page

Page is an excellent athlete who has been catching some serious interest as of late from P5 schools like ArkansasGeorgiaLSU, and Mississippi State. The Little Rock (Ark.) Robinson speedster is rated as Top 5 in-state prospect and it would be a surprise to not see bigger offers come in by the time he signs.

OT: Jake Syptak

Syptak is closing in on the 20 offer plateau, yet none of the offers are from P5 programs, but he is firmly on the radar with more than a few schools, most notably CaliforniaDukeUCLA, and Vanderbilt. Plays against some of the best prep competition in Texas competing at The Woodlands (Texas).

OG: Chris Elam

This kid already has the size that college coaches covet on the interior and he has had some very good camp performances this off-season. Memphis is the most recent offer for the Kingwood (Texas) riser, but is likely on a lot of the boards for P5 schools in the Midlands region.

Josh McCulloch

The younger brother of Texas Longhorns linebacker Jeffrey McCulloch, Josh is a prospect from Houston (Texas) Davis who just wins battles up front. He does not have the frame that some other top-rated interior prospects possess, but he outperforms many of those guys. Versatility should be considered a strength as he could play multiple roles.
