Vegas Top Underclassmen

Scout.com takes a look at the 12 best underclassmen from the Las Vegas Badger/New Level 7on7, with a host of 2012 and 2013 prospects from California headlining the list...

Bryce Treggs (2012)
Receiver, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
Helped Team AIGA to the quarterfinals and was one of the most productive receivers in the tournament.  Treggs has a verbal offer from Arizona State.

Derrick Woods (2012)
Receiver, Inglewood (Calif.)
Looks like the next big thing at Inglewood, and was a frequent target of Rettig's for Team Cathedral.

Everton Thaxter (2012)
Tight End, Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne
This tight end/H-Back and Narbonne teammate Williams had great chemistry and physically, Thaxter looms large.

Gabriel Marks (2012)
Receiver, Venice (Calif.)
Another one of Team B2G's most productive players and helped them to tourney title.

Hayden Rettig (2013)
Quarterback, Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral
Was one of the best quarterbacks, regardless of age, in Las Vegas.

Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick (2012)
Tight End, Palm Desert (Calif.)
While he may project as a lineman in college, for Team B2G, he was their big tight end target, who scored numerous touchdowns in their Sunday run.

Jordan Payton (2012)
Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian
Performed arguably the best of any receiver in Las Vegas, the future USC Trojan is strong, quick and boasts great hands, and never backs down.

Malik Gilmore (2012)
Tight End, Lakewood (Calif.)
The talent at Lakewood continues to flow with Gilmore one of the next few Lancers to watch.  He and Treggs were a potent combo for Team AIGA.

Mike Baker (2012)
Quarterback, Fresno (Calif.) Central
Despite splitting snaps with Cody Kessler, Baker looked great when it was his turn, and he was the top 2012 quarterback prospect in Vegas.

Moana Ofahengaue (2012)
Linebacker, Saratoga Springs (Utah) Westlake
Made plays at receiver and at linebacker and showed some very deceptive speed.

Tee Shepard (2012)
Cornerback, Fresno (Calif.) Central
In the toughest pool of the tournament, the youngster Shepard drew the opponents top receiver each game and didn't give up a touchdown in pool play.

Troy Williams (2013)
Quarterback, Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne
Split the duties with Max Wittek, but helped Team 1925 to a third place finish.

Honorable Mention
Sandy (Utah) Alta CB Austin Lee, Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola WR Kodi Whitfield, Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne CB Malik Cyphers, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral RB Devonte Neal,
