Sleepers- Junior Cole Neubeuer from Pinnacle and Zach Denney from Basha are going through position changes. Both move from the d-line, where they had plenty of success last year, to have a better chance to get recruited because of their size.

Up and Comers- Taylor Powell from Salpointe started games last year on varsity as a freshman, keep an eye on him. The Notre Dame Prep coaches are excited about 6-2 210 pound junior Phillip Caniglia. There is a lot of talk that Cassius Peat may be the best of the brothers. Not sure what position he plays but at 6-2+ and 200+, linebacker could be it.

Riser- Aaron Borg from Saguaro is a player that could rise up this list. He wasn't a starter until the end of last year but he showed quicks and explosion.
