Strikers Chris Brown and Neil Teggart, defenders Patrick Collins and Chris Scott, and midfielder Richie Ryan have all been given places in the senior set-up at The Stadium of Light as The Black Cats look to rebuild following relegation from The Premiership last season.
"We've brought five up from the academy," confirmed manager Mick McCarthy (pictured).
"They've done well at youth level and deserve their chance."
Also included in the squad are young defenders Simon Ramsden and Craig James.
The pair both spent last season on loan at Notts County and Hibernian respectively.
