Subiaco's Neil Erasmus is an agile midfield/forward prospect with plenty of upside to his game.
The West Australian hasn't had a deep sample size to offer scouts, however the glimpses he has shown with the Lions in the WAFL U18s competition have been enough to suggest a first-round calling for the 17-year-old.
An inside midfielder that has the ability to move forward and impact the scoreboard, Erasmus frames as one of the more versatile smaller options in his class that could be a key feature for an AFL club as early as next year.

"Medium forward with exciting natural sporting talent only this season focusing purely on an AFL career after being an elite underaged cricketer. A mercurial type of player his overhead marking and footy smarts help make him an exciting prospect.” - Kevin Sheehan
"The tall midfielder has steadily been rising up draft boards this season and now shapes as a top-10 pick contender. Something of a surprise packet in 2020, Erasmus has taken things up a notch in 2021." - Callum Twomey
