2015 College Football Recruits Who Will Be Big Headliners
Whether it be 5-star quarterbacks, a 348-pound offensive lineman or a defensive end with superstar potential as just a rising junior, the recruiting class of 2015 boasts plenty of headliners.
These are recruits that everybody is going to want to follow. If they visit a school, it's going to be all over the Internet. If they send out a tweet, about anything, expect a flurry of analysis to follow.
Once they narrow down their respective interest list, recruiting fans and coaches around the nation will be tuned in hoping to see that their program made the cut. And once these players eventually commit and sign, they will be the marquee recruits of their respective classes.
In fact, even though signing day 2015 is far away, these top recruits are already making headlines.

Maea Teuhema, 5-Star OT, Keller (Texas.)
Texas is known for churning out some of the best recruits in the nation on a yearly basis, so being the best player from the talented state tells you all you need to know about Teuhema. If you're still not convinced, just take a look at his size.
He's 6'4.5'', 348 pounds and he's still a sophomore in high school.
Size cannot be taught, even by the most experienced coach, so Teuhema has an intangible that will make him one of the most coveted recruits in this class.
Texas is the top team on his 247Sports interest list right now, and the Longhorns are followed up by Baylor and Oklahoma.
He's already taken three unofficial visits (247Sports) to Texas, so keep an eye on Teuhema if you're a Longhorns fan.
Josh Rosen, 5-Star PRO-QB, St. John Bosco (Calif.)
In a recruiting class that appears to be very strong at the quarterback position, he has the measureables to really stand out.
He's 6'3.5'', 200 pounds and he has a nice arm. He throws a pretty deep ball, with good arch and touch. Rosen is also accurate and can fit his intermediate throws into tight windows.
What makes him really intriguing as a quarterback recruit is his speed. He runs a 4.55 40, according to 247Sports, which points to a great amount of athleticism.
Michigan, Cal, Stanford and UCLA are the top teams on his 247sports interest list. Out of the four, he only holds an offer from Michigan so far
Terry Beckner Jr., 5-Star SDE, East St. Louis (Ill.)
The No. 2 recruit in the 2015 class is Terry Beckner Jr, out of East St Louis, Ill. (247Sports Composite).
He's 6'4'', 268 pounds and he's a tremendous athlete. He has great speed, the ability to pursuit down the line of scrimmage, and he's explosive enough to demand double teams.
Beckner Jr. has superstar potential, and considering his high-profile offers, he'll be a headline grabber.
Ricky Town, 5-Star PRO-QB, St. Bonaventure (Calif.)
Those qualifications are enough to consider him an instant star from this class.
He has good footwork and elite pocket presence. Town is able to move around the pocket and evade the rush, and he's also adept at throwing on the run. He can bootleg out and be a threat to throw the ball or make a play with his feet.
He's a strong runner, elusive and surprisingly quick.
Town also has a strong, accurate arm, though most of high highlights are of check-down plays. Still, you can see how he doesn't need to have his feet set to get the ball to his receiver quickly and accurately.
Miami, UCLA, Alabama, Georgia, Stanford and USC are on top of his 247Sports interest list. He only has offers from Miami, UCLA Florida State and Arizona State so far, though.
Canton Kaumatule, 5-Star SDE, Punahou (Hawaii)
The potential he possesses is undeniable, as he already checks in at 6'6.5'', 275 pounds. He's lanky but built like a true strong-side defensive end. He plays with leverage and is quick for his size. He'll be able to get after the quarterback, as well as come down the line and make plays against the run.
Kaumatule has the technique and raw size as just a rising junior, so one can only imagine just how good he'll be with two more years of high school football under his belt, plus the teaching he'll receive at the college level.
If he continues to put on mass, develop his technique and increase his overall knowledge of the game, Kaumatule has dominant potential.
Stanford, Hawaii and Washington are on top of his interest list (247Sports), but he only has offers from Utah, UCLA, Ole Miss, Cal and Hawaii.
The offers will roll in sooner rather than later though, because Kaumatule is already a headliner.
