Oakland Opening Regional - Top Ten Underclassmen

May 27 -- A look at the top ten underclassmen at The Opening Oakland...

QB Colson Yankoff, Coeur d'Alene (Idaho)

A good sized quarterback with a big arm, Yankoff was one of the players we had high expectations for going into Sunday and he didn't disappoint and he'll be a national recruit in the 2018 class. 


QB Blake Stenstrom, Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian

Stenstrom backs up Elite 11 finalist Dylan McCaffrey but given a chance to shine on Sunday, he did and made sure that McCaffrey wasn't the only Valor quarterback to have a big day.


RB Dusty Frampton, Stockton (Calif.) St. Mary's

Frampton had the second best SPARQ score on the day, and highest for an underclassmen, with a 122.88, including a 4.59 40 and measured in at 5-11, 213.


WR Chase Cota, Medford (Ore.) South

http://www.scout.com/player/200862-chase-cota?s=73

The four-star Cota impressed us a year ago at The Opening Eugene as a freshman and followed it up with an even better performance in Oakland, cementing himself as one of the best receivers in the West in the 2018 class.


TE Isaiah Foskey, Concord (Calif.) De La Salle (2019)

http://www.scout.com/player/204887-isaiah-foskey?s=73

Still a freshman, Foskey will take over for All-American Devin Asiasi this fall and may already be a better prospect at the same stage, showing good size, speed and hands during the regional. 


OL Tommy Brown, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei

http://www.scout.com/player/202587-tommy-brown?s=73

The early four-star won just about every rep he took and continues to refine his body.  He may have been the most consistent lineman, regardless of class, on Sunday.


OL Justin Dedich, Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral

http://www.scout.com/player/208999-justin-dedich?s=73

The lone underclassmen to make the Final Five for the lineman, Dedich has all the makings of a Power 5 center and landed his first offer in the days after the event.


LB Ferrin Manuleleua, Manteca (Calif.)

http://www.scout.com/player/209105-ferrin-manuleleua?s=73

Manuleleua isn't the biggest linebacker, at just about 5-11, but he impressed the linebacker coaches throughout the day.


LB Rocky Savea, Orem (Utah)

http://www.scout.com/player/198044-rocky-savea?s=73

Savea continues to add weight but hasn't sacrificed his athleticism in the process and drew rave reviews from the coaches for his performance.


LB Merlin Robertson, Gardena (Calif.) Serra

http://www.scout.com/player/195238-merlin-robertson?s=73

Robertson is one of the top linebacker prospects in the West, regardless of class, and the four-star had some spirited matchups with Najee Harris, more than holding his own.
