Will Sunderland



7v7 Team: Alpha Pro
Position: S
HT: 6'2 | WT: 190
Midwest City (Okla.)


Recruiting: The Sooner State prospect has announced that he has narrowed his focus to schools like Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Nebraska and Arkansas.


Scouting Report: A big, safety prospect who is known to be a big hitter. In one game he leveled a big tight end at the one-inch line to save a touchdown. Has the perfect size to be the center field type of safety, but will need to learn to play the ball at times and worry less about demolishing receivers, still it is hard to look at that aggressive attribute as a weakness. In the open field he does show the ability to break down and make the sure tackles.


At Stake: As the lone selection from Oklahoma he is set to put on a show for his home state. One of the top rising prospects in the country after a stellar showing at the Dallas NFTC. Could he be the best prospect in the state?
