Texas "Under The Lights": Top Sleepers

AUSTIN, Texas -- Scout.com takes a look at some of the under-the-radar prospects who made names for themselves at Friday's "Under The Lights" camp hosted by the Texas Longhorns.

Isaac Warren, 2015 CB, Tyler (Texas) John Tyler

Warren (pictured above) may have drawn more ooohs and aaahs from fans and media than any other player during the receiver/defensive back 1v1 matchups. Warren dominated most of his reps, finishing with two interceptions and four pass breakups. He allowed very few receptions and displayed his trademark physical nature, at one point jamming a receiver three yards behind the line of scrimmage as the ball was being released. His fellow defensive backs were going crazy watching him go to work. At 6-foot-1, 189 pounds, Warren is a huge cornerback prospect who could also play safety, which he got several reps playing when the Texas staff asked to see him play there. His camp performance was not a shock given his penchant for delivering impressive performances at camps, combines, and 7v7 games. Surprisingly, Warren has no FBS offers, only five FCS offers. He's remained patient and it may pay off in the near future. Expect a big senior year from Warren.


Jaylen Veasley, 2015 DT, Rockwall (Texas)

Veasley caught my eye during defensive linemen drills, where he displayed impressive lateral quickness and straight-line burst, as well as an aggressive nature that translated to good physicality when asked to do so. The 6-foot-1, 265-pounder is a bit undersized for a defensive tackle prospect, but compensates with his style of play and agility. Veasley also said he's gotten looks as a fullback/jumbo H-back hybrid. His only FBS offer so far is from Louisiana-Monroe, along with four FCS offers. Veasley should add to his offer list with a solid senior season, especially considering that he will get plenty of exposure with 2015 running back Chris Warren and 2015 athlete Xavier Castille as teammates.


D'Aundrey Bradley, 2015 WR, Cedar Hill (Texas)

If Warren is the defensive player who always delivers at these types of events, then Bradley is the same on the offensive side of the ball. The 6-foot-1, 179-pound Bradley has only one offer from New Mexico State, but do not expect that to remain the case. After spending his junior season at Dallas First Baptist, he'll play for an absolutely loaded Cedar Hill program coming off a state title and expected to compete for another. Head coach Joey McGuire is confident Bradley will soon blow up. Bradley backed up those expectations with another solid outing Friday, when he showed off his promising frame, great body control, and a natural feel for the receiver position that is evident in his ability to almost always make a play when asked.


Ashton Preston, 2015 CB, Edmond (Okla.) Santa Fe

Preston definitely looked the part. The was among the most physically impressive cornerbacks at the event. At 5-foot-10 1/2, 179 pounds, Preston has the size and frame that gives receivers problems, especially if they don't get off the line of scrimmage well. Preston has one FBS offer so far and he's already committed to that school: North Texas. However, don't be surprised if his offer list grows, especially with a big senior season.
