Sleeper

Skylor Clinton – Prescott- He plays all over the field including QB, WR, TE, RB and LB but I think his best college position is on defense where he is athletic enough to be an every down player.

Riser

Zach Compestine – Paradise Valley- Has zero defensive film yet has an offer as a linebacker from South Dakota State. Great looking prospect who was a very productive WR last year. He could easily crack the top 5 by season’s end.
