The 2013 recruiting cycle had one of the better player pools in recent memory. With top talents like Robert Nkemdiche, Vernon Hargreabes III, Su'a Cravens, Jaylon Smith, Max Browne, Carl Lawson, Matthew Thomas and Kelvin Taylor, it's easy to see why there are high expectations for this class.
The 2014 recruiting class features several players who not only are highly ranked, but would have been at the top or near the top of the board in 2013 recruiting. Defensive Da'Shawn Hand, RB Leonard Fournette, ATH Jabrill Peppers and OT Cam Robinson are all in that category.
Here's a look at those prospects and a few others who are better than some of the top recruits from last year.
