2014 Recruits Who Could Remain Teammates in College
High school coaches are lucky to have one college prospect on their team in a season. Those with two or more probably should play the Lotto. This year, schools like Mansfield Timberview in Arlington, Texas, and Central High in Miami, Fla., feature multiple college prospects.
However, Edward Paris and Brandon Simmons of Mansfield Timberview are not going to play together in college. Dalvin Cook and Joseph Yearby of Miami Central also will embark on separate college paths. However, Yearby and offensive tackle Trevor Darling, a Miami Central teammate, will both play at Miami.
Other teammates like Michiah Quick and Tashon Smallwood, Speedy Noil and Gerald Willis, plus Erick Smith and Marshon Lattimore are just a few who could be on this list.
Nick Watkins, CB, and Jovan Pruitt, OT (Bishop Dunne HS in Texas)
Watkins is the star at Bishop Dunne in Dallas, but Pruitt is no slouch himself. The big OL prospect is a 6'6", 295-pounder who can play OT or OG.
Each player has a vast number of offers, but they're not a package deal. However, they have many offers from the same schools, so there's a solid chance they end up playing together in college.
Malachi Dupre, WR, and Kenny Young, LB (John Curtis Christian in Louisiana)
John Curtis Christian, one of the better programs in the South, features the 6'3", 195-pound Dupre as its star offensive player.
With his size, speed and hands, Dupre has a chance to be a No. 1 WR in college. Not to be outdone on defense, teammate Kenny Young leads the way as a versatile LB.
In-state LSU could be the landing spot for both players.
Jalen Brown, WR, and Natrell Curtis, OG (Mountain Pointe HS in Arizona)
Phoenix is home to Mountain Pointe, which is a high school that features Brown at WR and Curtis in the trenches. The 6'2", 185-pound Brown is a silky WR with good length, hands and athleticism.
Curtis is a 6'2", 300-pounderwho plays both OG and DT. Some schools like him as a blocker, while others feel he's better at beating up blockers on defense.
Each player has many offers and a long list of schools, some which are common between them.
Parris Campbell, WR/RB, and Donte Booker, OLB (St. Vincent-St. Mary HS in Ohio)
Perhaps best known as LeBron James' high school, St. Vincent-St. Mary has a solid football program. In fact, James was once a star WR for the Irish.
Today, Campbell is the star offensive threat and has already committed to Ohio State. Urban Meyer would also like to land Booker, a stud OLB.
Treon Harris, CB, and Chad Thomas, DE (Booker T. Washington HS in Florida)
Booker T. Washington is one of the powerhouse programs in the talent-rich South Florida region. Harris is the brother of Brandon Harris, who started at CB for Miami a few seasons ago.
His father is also legendary Miami-area high school coach Tim "Ice" Harris. Thomas is a talented 6'5", 240-pound DE with many upper-echelon offers himself.
Miami could land both players.
Erick Smith, S, and Marshon Lattimore, ATH (Cleveland Glenville in Ohio)
Smith and Lattimore are two of the top prospects Ted Ginn Sr. has on his roster this year. The Cleveland Glenville coach has put a slew of players into college football and the NFL.
OG Marcelys Jones has already committed to Ohio State, which is where both Smith and Lattimore could end up. The 6'1", 190-pound Smith is a solid safety prospect. Lattimore is versatile WR/CB.
Trevion Thompson, WR, and Donte Williams, RB (Hillside HS in North Carolina)
Thompson gets most of the spotlight, but Williams is not to be overlooked. The big back is 6'1", 210 pounds and can attack a front seven by running hard downhill.
The 6'3" Thompson is one of the top WRs in the country. He has good speed, runs good routes and snatches everything with his hands. Look for Clemson to work to land these two.
Kyle Allen, QB, and Mark Andrews, WR (Desert Mountain HS in Arizona)
With Allen being one of the best QB prospects in the 2014 class, he has an advantage many of his peers do not: a teammate who is 6'6" WR who's also a good prospect.
Andrews helps Allen out in the passing game due to his great size and hands. He is not a speedy player, but his advantage comes in able to getto balls defenders can't reach.
Both players share many of the same offers, but keep your eye on the Arizona schools for both of them.
Adoree' Jackson, CB, and Dwight Williams, LB (Junipero Serra HS in California)
Serra High School was once home at the same time to Robert Woods, Marqise Lee and George Farmer, so the school is no stranger to talent.
Jackson is one of the top pure athletes and CB prospects in the country. His quick-twitch athleticism, deceptive strength and instincts are remarkable.
Williams is one of the best coverage linebackers in recent memory. He's a 6'1" defender who weighs 210 pounds and has great range. USC may be a school where these two both end up.
Lorenzo Carter, DE, and Myles Autry, RB (Norcross HS in Georgia)
Carter is such a big-time prospect that he outshines the talented Autry. At 5'11", 170 pounds, Autry has great speed, quickness and elusiveness with the ball.
He's a great scatback prospect, yet could end up at DB in college. The 6'6", 232-pound Carter is one of the 10-to-15 best players in the nation, regardless of position.
Georgia and Florida are the schools to watch out for should these two choose to continue playing together at the next level.
Michiah Quick, WR, and Tashon Smallwood, DT (Central High East Campus in Calif.)
The Grizzlies are not unfamiliar with seeing teammates sign with the same college. Last cycle, Hatari Byrd and L.J. Moore were stud DBs who both chose Oklahoma.
Moore and Byrd would love to see Quick join them, but Smallwood is committed to USC, which also wants Quick, the 6'0", 170-pound speedster. It will be fascinating to see where Quick ends up.
Chances are, wherever he goes, he will be playing with high school teammates.
Speedy Noil, WR, and Gerald Willis III, DL (Edna Karr HS in Louisiana)
Willis' brother is Alabama DB Landon Collins, so he's seen how the recruiting process plays out up close and personal. However, do not expect Willis to spurn LSU like his brother did, which should please their mother this time around.
Noil is Willis' teammate and one of the more electrifying players in the country. The 5'11", 176-pounder plays QB for Edna Karr, but will be a WR in college.
Les Miles and his staff are going to do all they can to make sure Willis and Noil stay together and sign with the Tigers.
