    Scouting Report:

    John Smith is the No. 5 ranked athlete in the 2014 class (247Sports Composite) and he can play safety or wide receiver at the college level. Personally I believe he projects best as a wide receiver. He has great vertical speed, crisp footwork and incredible body control. He can go up and high-point the ball and he displays very good hands and concentration. On defense he could be a rangy free safety that can be very good over the top and in jump ball situations.

12 of 50

He won't get beat deep because of his speed and great footwork. He's 5'9'', 175 pounds. 

Michiah Quick, 4-Star ATH, Central East High School (CA)

17 of 50

    Schools of Interest: USC, Alabama, California, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, UCLA, Oregon

    Analysis:

    Michiah Quick is the No. 4 athlete in the 2014 class according to the 247Sports rankings. He can play receiver, and he projects best as a slot receiver in my estimation. He has decent speed, but where he really stands out is with his vision. He can see the field and can find cutback lanes, and he's agile enough to make defenders miss, cut and explode through those lanes. He'll be very good with the ball in his hands and room to work in the open field. Quick is 6'0'', 170 pounds.

He has the vertical speed to be a deep threat, but I really like the way he would fit as a slot player at the college level. He takes great angles as a route runner and just needs a bit of open space to make a long run happen after the catch.
