Top 200 College Football Recruits for Class of 2014

Top 200 College Football Recruits for Class of 2014

1 of 103

    An elite running back, four talented defensive backs, a versatile athlete who may wind up in the secondary, two potentially dominant pass-rushing defensive ends, an NFL-sized offensive tackle and a mammoth defensive tackle populate the top 10 in Bleacher Report's list of the nation's top 200 recruits.

    There are no quarterbacks or wide receivers ranked that high. But several are sprinkled throughout the rest of the list. The wide receiver position is especially rich in talent, with several of the wideouts having the potential to be the kind of sleeper prospects every program seeks.

    And you can go 10 deep in the running back rankings and still find a player who has the potential to be a great back at the Division I level. 

    So there's a lot to look forward to in the 2014 class of recruits, as this list makes abundantly clear.

    Garrett Brumfield is the No. 5 offensive guard recruit in the nation. He has the size and fundamentals to become a great offensive lineman at the college level.

    He plays with good leverage and pad level, so that makes up for what could be considered a lack of size at just 272 pounds. He is quick, though, and that's key to guard play. He explodes out of his stance and has quick feet which allow him to get the angle at the line of scrimmage or get to the second level.

99. Dillon Bates

5 of 103

    6’3’’, 220 pounds

    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

    Ponte Vedra High School

    Outside linebacker

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Texas

     

    Dillon Bates is the No. 5 outside linebacker in the class. He's also the son of former Tennessee Volunteers defensive back Bill Bates, who played 15 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. Naturally, Tennessee is the top team on Dillon's interest list (247Sports).

    Bates is a rangy outside linebacker with good speed and athleticism. He can also take on a lead blocker on the edge, force the run outside, keep his outside shoulder free and make a play as a spill defender. He'll be comfortable in space, and he should be adept in pass coverage. He's a playmaker and a ball hawk. 

98. Bentley Spain

6 of 103

    6’6’’, 275 pounds

    Charlotte, N.C.

    Providence Senior High

    Offensive tackle

    4-star

    Schools of interest: North Carolina, South Carolina, Stanford

     

    Of the 19 predictions in the 247Sports Crystal Ball, two have Bentley Spain going to South Carolina and 17 picked North Carolina 

    Spain is an agile offensive tackle recruit who projects to be a great pass-blocker. He has a solid base, quick feet and can stay in front of defenders. Because of his size, he should also be able to push the line of scrimmage and be a good run-blocker. 

97. Cameron Denson

7 of 103

    6’1’’, 170 pounds

    Tucson, Ariz.

    Salpointe Catholic High School

    Cornerback, wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Arizona


    Cameron Denson has been committed to Arizona since January of 2013. He's the No. 5 player from the state, and you'll find highlights of him at cornerback, quarterback and wide receiver in high school.

    The skills that will translate are his elite quickness, footwork and vision. He's a great straight-line runner, so he'll be able to recover quickly on vertical routes. He also has soft hands and good length, which means he can make plays in coverage. 

96. Alex Bars

8 of 103

    6’6’’, 287 pounds

    Nashville, Tenn.

    Montgomery Bell Academy

    Offensive tackle

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Notre Dame

     

    Alex Bars is an offensive tackle recruit with good size and potential, and he's committed to Notre Dame. For as big as he is, Bars can move and be a factor in the open field.

    He'll be effective at coming down and blocking linebackers, and he can also pull and kick out at a high level. His quickness also helps him as a pass-blocker. He can move his feet and stay in front of defenders. 

95. Jalen Brown

9 of 103

    6’2’’, 170 pounds

    Phoenix, Ariz.

    Mountain Pointe High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Arizona, Arizona State, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, USC, Oregon

     

    Jalen Brown is a wide receiver with good height and length who also runs great routes. That's not even factoring in his ability to extend and go up and get the ball, or his straight-line speed. With his quick feet, Brown can take a short or intermediate route and pick up yards after the catch.

    Where Brown most stands out is with his physicality. He's going to be a solid blocker at the college level, and that's an underrated trait. 

94. Cameron Sims

10 of 103

    6’3.5’’, 190 pounds

    Monroe, La.

    Ouachita Parish High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma State, LSU, Texas


    Cameron Sims may only be the No. 14 wideout in the 2014 class, but he has star potential. He has good size and runs a 4.60 40. That's not exceptionally fast, but that speed combined with his height could make him very effective. Sims can be a pure deep threat.

    He uses his hands well to get separation off the line or in his route, and his height allows him to go up and "high point" the football. He has good extension and great leaping ability, so he should be an effective red-zone target at the college level. He can also take a shorter route and pick up valuable yards after the catch, as he's deceivingly shifty.

    Alabama is the leader on his interest list

93. Zach Whitley

11 of 103

    6’2’’, 220 pounds

    Houston, Texas

    North Shore High School

    Inside linebacker

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Alabama

     

    Zach Whitley is the No. 5 inside linebacker in the nation. Whitley has good lateral quickness, so he'll be able to defend plays to either edge as well as both the "A" and "B" gaps.

    He can fight through the wash, scrape over blocks and make a play in the alley, but he can also get downhill and meet a blocker or runner at the point of attack. Whitley has enough speed and athleticism to be a capable blitzing linebacker at the college level. 

92. Denzel Ware

12 of 103

    6’3’’, 220 pounds

    Crestview, Fla. (Crestview)

    Weak-side defensive end

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky

     

    If you look at Denzel Ware's 247Sports profile page, you'll see that there's no ranking information on him, but what's listed here was what was previously found on that page. He recently transferred schools, according to Josh Edwards of Catspaws.com on Twitter.

    Ware has great size for a weak-side defensive end, and he's also very lanky. He has an explosive first step and uses his hands well to combat the blocker. He's a pure athlete who will be effective in pursuit coming down to the line of scrimmage, but he'll also play strong and take on blockers.

    He may have some of the best hands of any weak-side defensive end in the class. Ware is a former Kentucky commitment, according to Scott Anderson of NationofBlue.com. 

91. Saeed Blacknall

13 of 103

    6'3'', 210 pounds

    Englishtown, N.J

    Manalapan High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: LSU, Alabama, Florida State, Notre Dame, Ohio State

     

     

    Saeed Blacknall may be ranked in the 90s of this class, but he could end up being a sleeper. He has the size to be a possession receiver and the speed to be a deep threat. Blacknall runs a 4.45 40, runs good routes and has elite footwork.

    His subtle movements plus his speed make him a deep threat, but he's also elusive and can make defenders miss on short routes. His height and route-running abilities will make him a great option in the red zone. He is also an effective kick returner.

90. Jesse Aniebonam

14 of 103

    6'4'', 230 pounds

    Olney, Md. 
     
    Our Lady of Good Counsel High School

    Weak-side defensive end

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Maryland, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame

     

    Jesse Aniebonam is ranked as the No. 2 player from Maryland, and the Terrapins are on top of his interest list. He has good size for a weak-side defensive end and combines that with 4.60 speed.

    Aniebonam has good length, explodes his hands out at the snap and can rush from the outside or rip inside. He also has the speed to come off the edge and dip his shoulder as a pass-rusher or chase down the play from the outside. He does a great job of getting off blocks and making plays in the gap.

89. Josh Frazier

15 of 103

    6’2.75’’, 324 pounds

    Springdale, Ark.

    Har-Ber High School

    Defensive tackle

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Texas A&M, USC


    Josh Frazier is the No. 1 recruit from the state of Arkansas and has immense potential. He has tremendous size for a defensive tackle. He's going to demand double-teams no matter the scheme. He projects to be a dominant 1-technique in the 4-3, and he can also be an effective nose tackle in the 3-4.

    Frazier has great strength and a good bull rush, but he can also rip off the block or double-team and make a play on the ball-carrier. He'll maintain gap integrity at the college level, and offenses will have to plan around him.

    Nine experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball believe Frazier will choose Arkansas; one predicts Alabama.

88. Jalyn Holmes

16 of 103

    6’5’’, 225 pounds

    Norfolk, Va.

    Lake Taylor High School

    Weak-side defensive end

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Florida State, Clemson, Ohio State

     

    Florida State is listed as the leader on Jalyn Holmes' interest list, but Clemson and Ohio State appear to be in the running as well. According to his 247Sports Crystal Ball, he should end up at FSU.

    Holmes projects to be an elite pass-rusher at the college level. He has decent size, but where he stands out is with his explosion. He has a quick first step and was consistently in the backfield in his highlights.

    He uses his hands well and can control the gap and get after the quarterback. He can be a good defensive end in a 4-3 system or a great outside linebacker in the 3-4.

87. Josh Malone

17 of 103

    6’2.5’’, 190 pounds

    Gallatin, Tenn.

    Station Camp High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech


    Josh Malone has a great combination of size and speed for a wide receiver. He runs a 4.43 40-yard dash and is the receiver the quarterback tells to "go and get" the ball.

    He has excellent straight-line speed and can go up and snatch the ball while it's still at its highest point. Malone presents mismatches against slower, smaller cornerbacks at the college level.

    Smart defenses will keep a safety over the top of Malone. But if he's utilized correctly, he can be a great wideout. He can also be a kick returner, but he projects best as an offensive playmaker.

86. Nathan Starks

18 of 103

    5’11’’ 200 pounds

    Las Vegas, Nev.

    Dismissed from school

    Running back, safety

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, USC


    Nathan Starks was dismissed from school for violating schools rules, according to Ray Brewer of the Las Vegas Sun, so his recruiting process features more questions than answers.

    Per the report from Brewer, Starks won't be able to play high school football in the state of Nevada due to a Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association transfer rule. "It’s unclear where he’ll play in 2013, but it won't be in Nevada," said Donnie Nelson, the assistant director for the NIAA.

    That's bad news for Starks, because he has a ton of potential. He still could play out of state. He's ranked as the No. 5 athlete in the nation and can play either running back or safety.

    He projects best as a running back, as he has good size and runs a 4.46 40. He'll be effective between the tackles and can be a power runner. He runs with a forward lean, runs low to the ground, lowers his shoulder on contact and keeps churning his legs.

    He also has the speed to beat defenders on the edge and has a great cut move. He can change directions instantly and explode through a new running lane. 

85. Demarre Kitt

19 of 103

    6’1’’, 182 pounds

    Tyrone, Ga.

    Sandy Creek High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Clemson

     

    Demarre Kitt is one of the more talented wide receivers in the 2014 class. He has a good combination of size and speed, and he runs 4.53 40. He can outrun defenders to open space, but he also has quick footwork and runs some of the best routes in this class.

    Kitt can run himself open, and then he has the second burst of speed to create separation. He can play wide or in the slot, though it's hard to deny the matchup problems he'll be able to create as a slot receiver. He'll be a good safety valve, but he can also make something happen after the catch. 

84. Lamont Gaillard

20 of 103

    6’3”, 310 pounds

    Fayetteville, N.C.

    Pine Forest High School

    Defensive tackle

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Georgia, Alabama, Miami, North Carolina State, South Carolina 

     

    Lamont Gaillard is a big defensive tackle recruit, ranked No. 6 at the position. He has the size to be a nose tackle or 1-technique at the college level, depending on whether he's in a 4-3 or a 3-4.

    He's big, but he has the quickness to shoot the A-gap and get into the backfield and make a play. He's explosive, uses his hands well to rip off blockers and has the strength to maintain his gap integrity against a double-team.

    The top team on Gaillard's 247Sports interest list is Georgia, and all 16 experts in his 247Sports Crystal Ball picked the Bulldogs. 

83. Malkom Parrish

21 of 103

    5'10'', 186 pounds

    Quitman, Ga.

    Brooks County High School

    Cornerback

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida

     

    Malkom Parrish is a Georgian recruit. Naturally, the Bulldogs are on top of his interest list, followed by Georgia Tech and Florida. 

    Parrish is a physical cornerback with good size and strength. He has quick feet and good athleticism. He isn't afraid to fly up to the line and put a hit on the ball-carrier, and he runs the alley in pursuit much like a linebacker or safety would.

82. Kalvaraz Bessent

22 of 103

    6’0’’, 170 pounds

    Kingsland, Ga.

    Camden County High School

    Cornerback

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Alabama

     

    Kalvaraz Bessent is the No. 5 recruit from the state of Georgia, and he represents a big out-of-state pickup for the Crimson Tide. He's a big cornerback with good size and length.

    He can flip his hips and run with vertical routes, and he displays sound concentration when the ball is in the air. He has the leaping ability and hands to go up and make a play on the ball. He also reads the run well and will fly down to the line of scrimmage to make a play, so he fits Alabama's scheme perfectly. 

81. Trevion Thompson

23 of 103

    6’2’’, 177 pounds

    Durham, N.C.

    Hillside High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Clemson, Ohio State, West Virginia

     

    Trevion Thompson is a wide receiver recruit with good height who is ranked as the No. 10 wide receiver in the 2014 class. He's an extremely fast and shifty runner who will be able to pick up yards after the catch at the college level.

    He runs with long strides, is athletic and can change direction quickly courtesy of an efficient cut move. He has good hands and can extend and make tough grabs. Thompson will also be a vertical threat because of the combination of his height, speed and athleticism.

80. Mark Andrews

24 of 103

    6’6’’, 230 pounds

    Scottsdale, Ariz.

    Desert Mountain High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Arizona, Arizona State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, USC

     

    Mark Andrews has the potential to be a star wide receiver at the college level. He's the size of a tight end but has the agility and skill set of a much smaller wide receiver. Simply put, he's going to cause a lot of mismatches. He has good footwork and runs smooth, deceiving routes.

    His height allows him to "high-point" the ball, which will make him a great option in the red zone. He also has the quickness and agility to line up in the slot and terrorize linebackers and safeties.

    His recruitment seems pretty wide open at the moment. 

79. Drew Barker

25 of 103

    6’4’’, 210 pounds

    Hebron, Ky.

    Conner Senior High School

    Pro-style quarterback

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Kentucky


    Drew Barker is the No. 7 pro-style quarterback in the nation. He has a strong arm and throws a tight spiral. He has a nice deep ball and can get it to his receiver on a line.

    He's also pretty good at throwing on the run. Barker is the type of quarterback who can run an option play, keep it and pick up good yards. He's a strong runner with good straight-line speed. 

78. Trey Quinn

26 of 103

    6’1’’, 200 pounds

    Lake Charles, La.

    Barbe High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: LSU, Clemson, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Texas, Texas Tech

     

    Trey Quinn has the size that translates to the college level, but he'll make the biggest impact because of his speed (4.39 40).

    He can be a deep threat because of his speed, but he can also go up and "high-point" the ball to make a play. He can take a short route and make a defender miss, and he should be great at picking up yards after the catch.

    If Quinn is utilized correctly, he could end up being a future star. He's a natural vertical threat, but he could be extremely effective in the slot against slower linebackers. The top team on his interest list is LSU, and the experts went 9-of-9 in favor of the Tigers in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions.

77. Derick Roberson

27 of 103

    6’3.5’’, 218 pounds

    San Antonio, Texas

    William J. Brennan High School

    Strong-side defensive end

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Texas

     

    Derick Roberson committed to Texas in August of 2012, which is a long commitment in the recruiting world. He has the measurables and skill set to be very good at the college level.

    Roberson has good length, and he utilizes a variety of moves to disengage blockers and get after the ball-carrier. He is quick enough to rush the quarterback on a regular basis.

    He'll be hard for offensive tackles to reach-block because he can keep his outside arm open. Roberson can also play strong against the run.

76. Nick Watkins

28 of 103

    6’1’’, 185 pounds

    Dallas, Texas

    Bishop Dunne High School

    Cornerback

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas

     

    Nick Watkins is a cornerback recruit with good size and speed. He runs a 4.50 40 and is the No. 8 cornerback in the class. Watkins has the length that helps him jam receivers at the line of scrimmage, and it also allows him to go up and get the ball at its highest point.

    He has good instincts as a cover corner, and he can open his hips, flip and run with vertical routes. Watkins is also quick and agile enough to be a kick returner if needed.

75. Shaq Davidson

29 of 103

    6’0’’, 170 pounds

    Gaffney, S.C.

    Gaffney High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: South Carolina, Auburn


    Shaq Davidson is an intriguing wideout recruit with good size and great speed (4.40 40). South Carolina is the top team on his interest list, as all 16 experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predict that he will end up with the Gamecocks.

    Davidson plays quarterback and wideout in high school, but he projects best as a wide receiver at the college level. He's elusive, has strong footwork and can simply outrun defenders to open space—so he'll be effective after the catch. He also has good length and athleticism, so he has unlimited potential as a receiver in the right scheme. 

74. Jerrod Heard

30 of 103

    6’2.5’’, 190 pounds

    Denton, Texas

    John H. Guyer High School

    Dual-threat quarterback

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Texas

     

    Jerrod Heard is the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the 2014 class, and he's been committed to Texas since August of 2012. You may think of a runner when you think of a dual-threat QB, but Heard has the arm of a true pocket passer.

    He has a strong, accurate arm, displays good footwork and balance in the pocket, and he throws a great deep ball. Most quarterbacks have to arc the long ball down the field, but Heard can drop it in on a line.

    As a runner, he's shifty, displays good vision and has a good cut move. He's also fast enough to outrun defenders to open space. 

73. Artavis Scott

31 of 103

    5’10’’, 175 pounds

    Tarpon Springs, Fla.

    East Lake High School

    Wide receiver

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, South Florida

     

    Artavis Scott has good vertical speed as a wide receiver. He also has sound vision and footwork, and he can change direction or reverse field quickly. 

    Scott projects to be a great slot receiver at his size. He'll be too quick for linebackers and safeties to cover in between the seams, and he'll be able to pick up valuable yards after the catch.

    Scott is ranked as the No. 6 wideout in the 2014 class, and his recruitment seems to be rather wide open. 

72. Donell Stanley

32 of 103

    6’4’’, 327 pounds

    Latta, S.C.

    Latta High School

    Offensive tackle, offensive guard

    4-star

    Schools of interest: South Carolina, Alabama, Clemson, North Carolina

     

    Donnell Stanley has the size to be an elite offensive lineman at the college level. He's ranked as the No. 4 guard in the 2014 class, but he can also play tackle. He's from South Carolina, and right now the Gamecocks are on top of his interest list.

    As a tackle or guard, he'll have great explosion off the line of scrimmage. He drives his feet and has the strength to overpower the defender and get him on skates. He uses his hands well to create separation and get the defender on his heels. 

71. Bryan Mone

33 of 103

    6’4’’, 338 pounds

    Salt Lake City, Utah

    Highland High School

    Defensive Tackle

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Michigan

     

    Bryan Mone is a big defensive tackle recruit who committed to Michigan in February of 2013. He has great technique and uses his hands to disengage blockers. For as big as he is, Mone has the speed to shoot the gap and make a play in the backfield. He can also come down the line and make a play in pursuit.

    Mone will be a great 3-technique, but he's versatile enough to twist or stunt outside and be effective coming off the edge. He is the No. 5 defensive tackle in the 2014 class.

70. Damien Mama

34 of 103

    6’5’’, 340 pounds

    Bellflower, Calif.

    Offensive guard

    4-star

    Schools of interest: USC, Notre Dame, Washington

     

    Damien Mama is a big offensive guard recruit who is ranked No. 3 at the position. His size is his greatest feature, but he's not just a big player. He's solid, and that gives him tremendous potential. He can get out to a linebacker quickly and make a block.

    He has the speed and agility to double-team, chip off the block and still get to the second level. Mama also has the strength and leverage to get under a defender, get him on his heels and drive the line of scrimmage backward.

69. Christian Miller

    Columbia, S.C.

    Spring Valley High School

    Outside linebacker

    4-star

    School of interest: Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee

     

    Christian Miller is ranked as the No. 4 outside linebacker in the 2014 class. He has good size for an outside backer and runs a 4.71 40, so he has the speed to be effective on the edges. He projects to be a pure pass-rusher at the college level, but he can also be effective against the run.

    Miller does a good job of fighting to keep his shoulder free in an effort to set the edge, and he's good in pursuit. He also has an effective inside rip move as a pass-rusher, so he's much more than just a speed guy who can swim over and turn the corner on a tackle.

68. Khari Clark

36 of 103

    6’2’’, 325 pounds

    Hollywood, Fla.

    Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory School

    Defensive tackle

    Schools of interest: Miami, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame

     

    Khari Clark is the No. 4 defensive tackle in the nation. Miami is listed as the top team on his interest list, and all 13 experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predict that Clark will end up with the Hurricanes.

    He's a strong defensive tackle who has an explosive first step, and he's very adept at shooting the gap and getting in the backfield. He'll demand double-teams because of his size, and he has the strength to hold his gap, rip off and make a play.

    For as big as he is, he's surprisingly quick and agile. Clark can be effective in pursuit and can be a 1-technique in a 4-3 or a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense. 

67. Nifae Lealao

37 of 103

    6’2’’, 282 pounds

    Sacramento, Calif.

    Capital Christian School

    Strong-side defensive end

    4-star

    Schools of interest: Stanford

     

    Nifae Lealao appears to be a Stanford lean. The Cardinal are the only program listed on his interest list, and all seven experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predicted that's where he'd land.

    Laelao plays with good strength and has immense potential. He's big, quick and is fundamentally sound.

    He uses his hands to explode up through the blocker and create separation, and he plays with good leverage. He has a quick first step, is adept at coming down the line in pursuit from the weak side of the play and should be a capable pass-rusher because of his combination of speed and strength. 

66. Caleb Henderson

    He can get after the quarterback with his fundamental use of hands to disengage blockers, but he's also strong enough to lock up and bull-rush a blocker back. Thornton can set the edge because of his length and ability to disengage, and he'll come down the line and make plays on the interior against the run.

    Tyler Luatua is the No. 1 tight end in the nation. Luatua has excellent size, so he'll be able to stay home and block, but he can also be a mismatch in the seams against smaller safeties. He can outrun linebackers on crossing routes with his speed and fluid running ability.

    As a tight end, Luatua can stay in-line and work the middle of the field, but he can also split out and be a vertical threat. He has the agility and vision to make something happen after the catch, but he can also be a pure possession wide receiver. He'll be a good blocker downfield, but he also projects to be able to stay home and set the edge as a blocking tight end.

    All 11 experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball have predicted that Clark will end up at Alabama, where he'd fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker. If he were to choose Auburn, though, he projects well at the hybrid safety position in the 4-2-5.

    Drake Harris is the No. 4 wideout in the 2014 class, and he has the potential to be a star for the Wolverines. He gets good separation from defensive backs because of his speed and long stride. He covers a lot of ground quickly, so he'll be a legitimate deep threat at the college level.

    Harris will be able to go up and make a play on the ball with his soft hands. He will be good vertically, but he can also take a short route and make something out of it. He has good vision as a runner, makes quick, sharp cuts and changes direction quickly.

I’m just going to focus on Clemson and my high school season. I’m not interested in going to visit anywhere. I’ve been thinking about it a lot. I talked to my mom, and she said it was fine with her.”

    Watson is the No. 4 pro-style quarterback in the 2014 class. He has good size, but he also has top-notch speed (4.65 40).

    He's a strong runner who gets downhill quickly, but he also has an effective cut move and displays solid vision. As a quarterback, he has a strong arm and can zip the ball in on a line.

    He displays good pocket presence and steps into his throws. He's also agile and able to move around in the pocket. And even though he's not ranked as a dual-threat quarterback, he will be a threat to take off and run when the play breaks down.

    Like some of the best quarterbacks in the game, he should be able to set himself apart with his ability to make accurate throws on the run.

    Michiah Quick is ranked as an athlete, but according to a report via Pete Sampson and Jake Brown of Irish Illustrated, he'd prefer to play wideout in college: "Quick is considering an offer from Notre Dame along with Alabama, Cal, Oklahoma, UCLA, USC and Washington, among others. While some have projected the 6-foot, 170-pound prospect on defense, the Irish see a wide receiver."

    Quick projects to be a viable option at wide receiver. He's a lanky wideout with long strides, has good footwork and excels at getting separation from the defender. He could also be utilized as a kick returner, where his long strides, vision and patience make him very effective.

    Dupre has good concentration and soft hands. He's quick enough to beat defenders vertically and runs crisp, deceiving routes that allow him to create separation.

    He has the potential to be the best receiver in the class if he's utilized and coached correctly. LSU is the leader on his interest list, but he did pick up a notable offer from Alabama in early May

    Edward Paris is the No. 3 safety in the 2014 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He's a rangy safety with good speed, he can open his hips and run with a vertical route, and he's a natural ball hawk.

    Paris can go up and high-point the ball, and he's strong and savvy enough to take the ball away from would-be receivers while it's in the air. He has an effective backpedal and tremendous recovery speed. He can also line up at cornerback and be effective, especially in LSU's defense.

    Greenville, N.C.

    J.H. Rose High School

    Strong-side defensive end

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Georgia, Clemson, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Alabama, N.C. State

     

    Kentavius Street is the No. 1 player from North Carolina and the No. 4 strong-side defensive end in the nation. He's a bit short for a defensive end, but he has good speed, running a 4.75 40.

    Street is an effective pass-rusher because of his speed, but he complements that with fundamental moves with his hands. He's adept at coming down the line of scrimmage and making a play from the backside, but he's also disciplined enough to stay home and contain the edge. Street can close down a gap and nullify an out block thanks to his speed.

    Georgia is the leader on his interest list, and it will be interest to see how Street's recruitment plays out.

    Pro-style quarterback

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Stanford, USC, Pittsburgh, Alabama

     

    Keller Chryst is the top pro-style quarterback in the nation (247Sports Composite). For now, he appears to be a Stanford lean, and all 16 experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predict Chryst will commit to Stanford.

    He has strong footwork and poise in the pocket. He can really hurl the ball on a line to his receiver, but he also has a good deep ball that he throws with touch. Chryst is an accurate quarterback with a natural throwing motion.

    Detroit, Mich.

    Loyola High School

    Strong-side defensive end

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Michigan, Michigan State

     

    Malik McDowell has superstar potential, if only for his size. He's a big strong-side defensive end, but he also has top-notch speed. McDowell runs a 4.70 40, and he is the No. 3 strong-side defensive end in the 2014 class.

    He's a Michigan lean, but Michigan State is also on his leader board right behind the Wolverines. McDowell has great length and agility, good fundamentals and explosive hands that help him disengage from blockers. His swim move really stands out, and he should be a great pass-rusher at the college level. 

25. John Smith

79 of 103

    Long Beach, Calif.

    Long Beach Polytechnic High School

    Schools of interest: Notre Dame, Michigan, Alabama, Ohio State, Ole Miss, UCLA, USC, Washington, Wisconsin

     

    John Smith is an extremely versatile athlete, ranked No. 3 at the position. He can play safety or wide receiver. As a receiver, Smith has quick feet and good hands. He may run the best routes of any receiver in the 2014 class.

    As a defensive back, he's able to stay over the top of routes and displays good range. He also has a quick break and gets downhill fast, and he's not afraid to be physical and get involved in the running game. 

24. Kc McDermott

    West Palm Beach, Fla.

    Palm Beach Central High School

    Offensive tackle

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Miami

     

    Kc McDermott has great size, but he plays with good leverage and bend in his legs. He explodes out of his stance and uses his hands and legs well to drive back the defender.

    He's a tenacious blocker with enough speed and agility to get to the second level and wall off linebackers. McDermott is the No. 3 offensive tackle in the 2014 class. 

23. Ermon Lane

81 of 103

    6’3’’, 193 pounds

    Homestead, Fla.

    Homestead Senior High School

    Wide receiver

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Florida, Miami

     

    Ermon Lane is the No. 1 wideout in the nation. Nine experts predict he'll end up at Miami, while four predict Alabama.

    Here's what Lane had to say about Miami back in mid-April, per Matt Shodell of CaneSport.com: "Well Miami, it's benefiting them because it's my dream school. But I'm keeping everything open at this point."

    Lane is a tall wideout who will be a deep threat at the college level. He has above-average speed, runs with long strides and has the leaping ability and athleticism to go up and high-point the ball. He can make a catch in a crowd, especially in jump-ball situations.

    He uses his hands well to disengage from jams and get vertical, and he also has good footwork and elusiveness after the catch. He's the most complete wide receiver in this class.

22. Kain Daub

82 of 103

    6’3’’, 234 pounds

    Jacksonville, Fla.

    Sandalwood High School

    Inside linebacker

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Florida State

     

    Kain Daub has tremendous size and great potential as an inside linebacker. He's the No. 2 inside linebacker in the nation, and he's a physical player with good speed and strength.

    He can scrape over blocks, run to his spill lane and make a play on the ball-carrier, but he can also play head-up, take on a lead blocker, rip off and control the A-gaps. He'll be a good blitz linebacker, though his first step seems to be a bit inconsistent. 

21. Dalvin Cook

83 of 103

    5’11’’, 190 pounds

    Miami, Fla.

    Miami Central High School

    Running back

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Florida

     

    Dalvin Cook was previously committed to Clemson before Will Muschamp and his staff were able to flip the running back. Cook is the No. 5 back in the 2014 class and No. 3 player from Florida.

    He's an explosive runner with good straight-line speed and vision. He can be elusive, but he's more of a one-cut-and-go runner. He hits the hole hard and runs with a forward lean, always churning his feet. Cook can also be utilized as a receiver out of the backfield.

20. Solomon Thomas

84 of 103

    6’3’’, 256 pounds

    Coppell, Texas

    Coppell High School

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC

     

    Solomon Thomas is the No. 2 strong-side defensive end in the nation, and he seems to be a Texas lean at the moment.

    The 247Sports Crystal Ball also has him heading to Texas, with all 17 experts predicting that he will end up with the Longhorns. It is worth noting that he has taken a few trips to both Oklahoma (unofficial visit and junior day) and Arkansas (two unofficial visits).

    Thomas could end up being the best defensive end from this class. He has great strength and plays with excellent fundamentals. He's able to fight through blocks and move toward the ball, and he uses his hands well to disengage from the block.

    He explodes out of his stance, drives and uses good leverage. He can push back the line of scrimmage and will be able to effectively set the edge at the college level.

19. Joseph Yearby

85 of 103

    5’9’’, 190 pounds

    Miami, Fla. 

    Miami Central High School

    Running back

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Miami

     

    Joseph Yearby is the No. 4 running back in the 2014 class. He has tremendous footwork and uses it to his advantage with a variety of jukes. His best move is undoubtedly his cut, as he can change direction very quickly.

    He has good open-field speed, but he can also be a physical runner. He drives his feet on contact, lowers his shoulders and picks up extra yards.

18. Jalen Hurd

86 of 103

    Jalen Hurd is the No. 3 running back in the 2014 class and the No. 1 player from the state of Tennessee. He is a big, powerful running back who hits the hole hard and has great straight-line speed.

    He's explosive out of the gate and can run through tackles. He also has great agility and footwork. Hurd can be effective between the tackles, but he can also beat defenders to the edge and outrun them to open space.

    He has the potential to be an elite running back. 

17. Hoza Scott

87 of 103

    6’2’’, 220 pounds

    La Porte, Texas

    La Porte High School

    Outside linebacker

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Texas A&M

     

    Hoza Scott is the No. 1 outside linebacker in the 2014 class. He's athletic and fast, but he has the size and strength to be a complete linebacker.

    He's rangy and explosive as an outside linebacker. He gets into the backfield quickly in blitz situations, and his speed will be hard for offensive tackles to defend.

    He defends the outside with speed and strength, and he'll be able to set the edge and make a tough tackle in open space. He'll also be a good coverage linebacker because of his athleticism.

16. Laurence Jones

88 of 103

    6’2’’, 200 pounds

    Monroe, La.

    Neville High School

    Safety

    5-star

    Schools of interest: LSU, Alabama, Ohio State

     

    Laurence Jones has great size for a safety recruit, and he has equally great potential. He's the No. 2 safety in the 2014 class.

    He's athletic, quick and has the leaping ability to go up and high-point a ball. He's able to stay over routes and has flexible hips and good footwork. He'll make quarterbacks pay for errant passes. Jones is a true ball-hawking safety.

    Right now, LSU is listed as the top team for his services.

15. Bo Scarbrough

89 of 103

    6’2’’, 225 pounds

    Tuscaloosa, Ala.

    Northridge High School

    Athlete

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Alabama

     

    Bo Scarbrough is the No. 2 athlete recruit in the 2014 class, but he projects to be an elite running back. He's been committed to Alabama since September of 2012.

    He's a bruising runner who gets downhill quickly and explodes through the hole, but he also has top-notch speed and good elusiveness.

    Because of Alabama's surplus of talented running backs, he could play outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense. But it's hard to ignore the potential he has as a running back.

14. Raekwon McMillan

90 of 103

    6’2’’, 242 pounds

    Hinesville, Ga.

    Liberty County High School

    Inside linebacker

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Ohio State, Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, USC

     

    Raekwon McMillian is the No. 1 inside linebacker in the 2014 class. He has ideal size for an inside linebacker and combines that with good speed (4.65 40).

    Ohio State is the leader on his interest list, and here's what he had to say about the Buckeyes, via Miles Joseph of Eleven Warriors: "Right now, Ohio State is on top. I don't have a list after that though. I'll have a top three, top five, top eight, top 10—something like that in a couple of weeks."

    McMillian is a tough linebacker with sideline-to-sideline range. He can get downhill in a hurry and fill the gap, but he also has the speed to scrape over blocks, run the alley and make a good tackle on the ball-carrier. He'll be comfortable in space dropping back into coverage. 

13. Jalen Tabor

91 of 103

    6’1’’, 182 pounds

    Washington, D.C.

    Friendship Collegiate Academy

    Cornerback

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Vanderbilt

     

    Jalen Tabor is the No. 4 cornerback in the 2014 class. He's a lanky cornerback who plays a physical and disruptive brand of football. He uses his hands to jam receivers, and he has a knack for getting between passing lanes.

    Tabor is good in press coverage and flexible enough to open his hips and run. He also has solid recovery speed and acceleration. He's a sure tackler and isn't slow to come up against the run.

    Tabor had this to say about Alabama early in May, per Andrew Bone of Rivals.com: "You know I feel great about Alabama. It's my parents' favorite school. That's the only school they talk about. That's not going to play a role in my decision, though."

    According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball, five experts out of seven predict he'll go to Florida, and the other two predict Florida State. 

12. Damian Prince

92 of 103

    6'6'', 300 pounds

    District Heights, Md.

    Bishop McNamara High School

    Offensive tackle

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Florida State, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Rutgers

     

    Damian Prince is a recruit with immense potential. He has the size, agility and speed to be an elite offensive lineman at the college level. He runs a 5.0 40 and is the No. 2 offensive tackle recruit in the nation.

    Prince is an aggressive run-blocker who runs his feet until the whistle, and he plays with good bend and leverage. He also projects to be a great pass-blocker. He has an effective kick-step and gather, and his footwork and quickness allow him to move with the defensive lineman.

    As you can see, his recruiting process is still rather wide open at the moment. 

11. Sony Michel

93 of 103

    5’11’’, 205 pounds

    Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

    American Heritage High School

    Running back

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Georgia

     

    Sony Michel has the potential to be elite. He's fast and can get where he needs in a hurry. He also has tremendous footwork. Michel is elusive in the open field and has the agility to instantly change direction.

    For as fast as he is, though, he also displays great power and strength, especially with his stiff arm. Michel is committed to Georgia, picking the Bulldogs over Notre Dame and Miami. He's the No. 2 running back in the 2014 class.

10. Tony Brown

94 of 103

    6’0’’, 188 pounds

    Beaumont, Texas

    Ozen High School

    Cornerback

    5-star

    Schools of interest: LSU, Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M

     

    Tony Brown is the No. 3 cornerback in the 2014 class, but he's also the No. 1 player from the talent-laden state of Texas. He has good size for a cornerback recruit, and he'll stand out because of his speed (4.37 40).

    He appears to be an LSU lean, and 22-of-23 experts predicted the Tigers in his 247Sports Crystal Ball. His sister also committed to the LSU track team, so that could be a factor in his recruitment.

    Here's what he had to say about that back in February, according to Brian McLaughlin of the Sporting News: "I'm definitely weighing all of my options, and all of them have offered me. Since my sister committed to LSU, I'll evaluate them more than I was before, even though they were already high on my list. I'm not really going to have an early commitment. I won't make it last-second, either."

    Brown is an extremely physical cornerback who could probably play safety if he put on more weight. That said, if he were to commit to LSU, he'd be a perfect fit in its scheme. He's a strong, fundamental tackler who excels at setting the edge and sniffing out run plays.

    He's comfortable near the line of scrimmage and has good length. He should be able to jam receivers as a corner at the college level, and he'll fight to keep outside contain and squeeze down against edge runs. 

9. Quin Blanding

95 of 103

    6’2’’, 200 pounds

    Virginia Beach, Va.

    Bayside High School

    Safety

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Virginia

     

    Quin Blanding is a huge pickup for the Cavaliers, as he's the No. 1 safety in the 2014 class. Blanding has a good combination of size and speed (4.50 40). He is a true athlete and ball hawk, and he has the speed to stay over the top of routes.

    Blanding displays good footwork that allows him to break and jump routes. He's not afraid to come up and play physically against the run, and he runs the backside alley well in pursuit. Blanding is also a strong tackler.

    Gardena, Calif.

    Junipero Serra High School

    Cornerback

    5-star

    Schools of interest: USC, Florida, Florida State, Illinois, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, UCLA

     

    Adoree' Jackson appears to be a USC lean. The Trojans are the top team on his interest list, and 12-of-13 experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predict he'll end up with USC. He's also lives in Gardena, Calif., which is less than a half-hour away from USC.

    He's a small yet quick cornerback with good footwork and athleticism. He's constantly around the football when it's in the air and can flip his hips and run vertically.

    Jackson is not afraid to fly up to the line of scrimmage and make a play on a ball-carrier in open space. He'll be an effective slot cornerback right away, but he has the potential to be a starter at either cornerback spot.

7. Andrew Brown

97 of 103

    6’4’’, 282 pounds

    Chesapeake, Va.

    Oscar Frommel Smith High School

    Defensive tackle

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Virginia, Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, West Virginia

     

    Andrew Brown is the best defensive tackle in the nation. He's a big player, but he stands out because of his quickness and technique. He uses his hands extremely well to disengage blockers and has a nice swim move. He also has a quick first step and can shoot the gap.

    Brown plays strongly against the run and is good at coming down the line of scrimmage, fighting the wash and closing on a play. Virginia is listed as the top team on his interest list, and 23-of-25 experts predicted that he'll choose the Cavaliers.

6. Marlon Humphrey

98 of 103

    6’1’’, 175 pounds

    Birmingham, Ala.

    Hoover High School

    Cornerback

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Mississippi State, South Carolina

     

    Marlon Humphrey is the No. 1 cornerback recruit in the 2014 class, and he appears to be an Alabama lean. All 35 experts predicted that will be his choice in the 247Sports Crystal Ball.

    Humphrey is a physical corner with good instincts and fundamentals. He has an explosive break and can quickly get back to the line of scrimmage to make a play. He also has the speed to turn, run and make a play on a vertical route.

    He sets the edge well as a run defender and fights to keep outside containment. He could also be an option as a kick returner, as he displays sound vision and runs with long strides.

    Humphrey utilizes the shuffle technique that Nick Saban teaches his cornerbacks at Alabama, so that's another reason to believe that Humphrey and the Crimson Tide are a good fit. 

5. Lorenzo Carter

99 of 103

    6’5’’, 232 pounds

    Norcross, Ga.

    Norcross High School

    Weak-side defensive end

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, South Carolina, USC, Vanderbilt 

     

    Lorenzo Carter has the potential to be a strong pass-rusher at the college level. He runs a 4.60 40, and he's the No. 1 weak-side defensive end in the country.

    He has a quick first step and is explosive out of his stance. He turns the corner quickly and has the agility to change angles to adjust to the quarterback's movement in the pocket. Carter is strong enough to set the edge against a tackle or tight end, fight to keep his outside arm free and stretch the play outside.

    His recruiting process is still rather wide open, but he did name Alabama and Georgia as programs that will be in his top five, according to Mark Heim of AL.com.

4. Cameron Robinson

100 of 103

    6'6'', 330 pounds

    West Monroe, La.

    West Monroe High School

    Offensive tackle

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, LSU

     

    Cameron Robinson is the No. 1 offensive tackle recruit, according to the 247Sports Composite, and he has the potential to be elite because of his size alone.

    As a run-blocker, he plays with a good forward lean, is explosive out of his stance and uses his hands well to disengage and keep the defender off him. He has the quickness to get to the second level to combat linebackers, and his agility will translate into him being an effective pass-blocker as well.

    Robinson's top two consists of LSU and Alabama. His most recent visits have been to Alabama.

3. Jabrill Peppers

101 of 103

    6’1’’, 205 pounds

    Paramus, N.J.

    Paramus Catholic High

    Safety, running back, athlete

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Committed to Michigan

     

    Jabrill Peppers is the No. 1 athlete recruit, but he projects to be a stellar cornerback or safety at the college level. He could make the most impact as a corner. He displays great strength and athleticism, and his height and size will give him an advantage.

    He'll be able to jam receivers at the line, but he can also turn and run with vertical routes, and he has the agility and skill set to go up on the ball and make a play. Peppers could also play running back, as he's a very strong downhill runner, but that skill will translate to cornerback or safety.

    He'll be strong and physical when setting the edge and won't be afraid to make a big tackle in open space.

2. Da’Shawn Hand

102 of 103

    6’5’’, 247 pounds

    Woodbridge, Va.

    Woodbridge High School

    Strong-side defensive end

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Michigan, Virginia Tech, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina

     

    Da'Shawn Hand is the former No. 1 recruit in the class, but he's still the No. 1 strong-side defensive end. He also still possesses tremendous potential.

    Hand isn't as big as you'd like just yet, but he has tremendous speed, agility and fundamentals. He uses his hands well to disengage blockers, and he has the speed to be good in pursuit. Hand should also be an effective pass-rusher (4.60 40).

    Michigan and Virginia Tech are on top of his interest list. He's had good things to say about all of his visits so far, though it's worth noting that 27-of-36 in his 247Sports Crystal Ball are for Virginia Tech.

1. Leonard Fournette

    New Orleans, La.

    Running back

    5-star

    Schools of interest: Alabama, LSU

     

    Leonard Fournette is the No. 1 overall player in the class of 2014. He's an extremely strong runner who's explosive hitting the hole and will run through arm tackles. He'll be excellent in short-yardage situations, and he also has terrific speed and agility.

    He displays good vision and can make defenders miss in open space, but he's more likely to run them over. He's fast, yet powerful. He has good vision and can make defenders miss, but he can also put his shoulder down and pick up tough yards. He'll also be able to catch the ball out of the backfield.

    Of the 28 experts who offered a prediction, 26 predict Fournette will pick LSU.
