Sumpter, a 6', 180 pound defensive back roams all over the secondary for the Tarblooders, but his future will at least start at cornerback. Sumpter could possibly end up at safety somewhere down the road, but his senior film displays great cover ability in both man and zone.
He attacks the ball and uses solid agility to stay with his man in coverage. Once in the air, he uses plus body control to put himself in position to make a play on the ball, which is a big reason he has forced a handful of turnovers in his lone season at Glenville.
Sumpter is the second commit from the state of Ohio in the 2015 Illinois class, joining offensive lineman Zeke Martin. He is also the fourth defensive commit in an offense-heavy class as the Illini look to solidify the back end of a young squad.
