Class of 2012 Sleepers: 'Full Ride' Recruiting Power Rankings

Full RideB/R VideoMarch 20, 2012

One of the best elements of recruiting is surprise.

Sure, big-name players get the most attention, with some living up to expectation while others fizzle.

Then there are the players who arrive on campus unheralded, have a big impact and make a name for themselves.

We turn to Scott Kennedy, Fox Sports National Scouting Director, as he lists his top five sleepers for the class of 2012.

One of those recruits ready to step on campus in the fall is Christian Powell from Upland, CA. The hybrid tight end/defensive end is committed to Colorado and will provide a lot of value in Boulder.

Florida commitment Latroy Pittman is a good-sized wide receiver at 6’1” and 190 lbs. With a little tutelage from Will Muschamp, the Gators should have another weapon on their hands.

So who rounds out the top five? Kennedy gives Full Ride the answer.

Make sure to check out who Scott pegs to be the Class of 2012's impact offensive players and defensive players.
