Malik Jefferson, 2015 LB, Mesquite (Texas) Poteet
Scout.com's No. 1 player in Texas, Jefferson did not disappoint Saturday, which ended for him with an invitation to The Opening. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder outside linebacker started the day with an impressive 4.56-second 40-yard dash and a 35.8-inch vertical leap. As expected, he was good in drills and competition, showing plenty of fluidity and flexibility for a prospect likely destined for a 3-4 outside linebacker spot at the next level.
Will Sunderland, 2015 S, Midwest City (Okla.)
Size was the first thing noticeable about Sunderland, who measures 6-foot-3, 185 pounds. His size and length make him a rangy safety prospect who can cover a lot of ground, which he did during 1-on-1 competition Saturday afternoon. Sunderland joined Whitehouse (Texas) safety and Texas A&M commit Justin Dunning as The Opening invitees following impressive performances. Sunderland also received the defensive backs MVP.
George Lea, 2015 DE, New Orleans (La.) Landry-Walker
Lea was 1 of 2 impressive Louisiana defensive linemen at Saturday's Dallas NFTC, which also hosted Shreveport Woodlawn 2015 defensive tackle T.D. Moton. Lea looked good in the defensive linemen drills, displaying good footwork and agility, especially for a prospect standing 6-foot-2 and 250-plus pounds. Lea garnered D-line MVP honors at the end of the day.
Justin Dunning, 2015 S, Whitehouse (Texas)
Saturday's Dallas NFTC was the first really intense football activity in which Dunning has participated since getting cleared from ACL rehab a couple of weeks ago. He delivered, even if he expressed dissatisfaction in his 4.58-second 40 time. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Texas A&M pledge was tough in one-on-one matchups and at one point used his length and leaping ability to elevate above an overmatched receiver and pull down an impressive interception.
Josh Butler, 2015 CB, West Mesquite (Texas)
Butler's inclusion on this list comes as no surprise to anyone who has followed his recruitment in recent weeks. The 5-foot-10, 163-pounder has seen his offer list climb into the teens and includes programs from across the country. He used his long arms and good instincts to pester receivers during Saturday's 1-on-1 portion. Butler will team with another cornerback who performed well Saturday -- 2016 prospect Bailey Phillips -- this fall for West Mesquite.
Darrell Miller, 2015 CB, Cedar Hill (Texas)
Miller is one of Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire's many FBS-caliber prospects, and he showed it Saturday. Even his position coaches were singing his praises during the 1-on-1 competition. The long-limbed cornerback displayed good athleticism and instincts to successfully cover his receivers.
P.J. Mbanasor, 2015 CB, Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson
An impressive day for one of the state's hottest recruits in recent weeks started with his measurement of 6-foot-1 1/2, 179 pounds and ended with an invitation to The Opening. Mbanasor displayed his elite size for the cornerback position and it obviously caught the attention of Nike's decision-makers.
Justice Austin, 2015 LB, North Little Rock (Ark.)
The 6-foot-1, 229-pounder competed in a strong linebacker group led by the aforementioned Malik Jefferson and -- when he wasn't at running back -- 2017 star Dylan Moses. Nevertheless, Austin made a name for himself with the highest Nike SPARQ rating at the event with a 124.08.
