Vernon Hargreaves III is a rare talent, and every school in the nation seems to be after the top recruit. 

Watch this video to find out which NFL player compares most to Hargreaves. 

Football excellence runs in Vernon Hargreaves' family. The 5'11" product of Wharton High School in Tampa, Fla., is the son of South Florida defensive end and special teams coach Vernon Hargreaves II.

He is heralded as being one of the smartest and quickest defensive backs in the 2013 class, whose only area of improvement is in his tackling ability.

And even that isn't of huge concern.

According to 247 Sports Composite, Hargreaves is a five-star recruit who ranks as the best cornerback prospect and the sixth-best overall prospect of his class.

In his senior season, Hargreaves had five picks, five forced fumbles, 110 total tackles and two fumble recoveries. He is also ready—right now—to step onto the field and dominate.
