Changing positions in college can be huge for a recruit. Often, college prospects are the best and most athletic players on their teams, so they're usually forced to play out of position for the better of the team.
But in college, they can settle into one spot and develop. Other recruits simply are listed at one position but figure to be better suited at another position due to their size, athleticism or speed.
Looking at the 2015 class of recruits, there are several prospects who could change positions at the next level. A 5-star cornerback could get moved to safety, while a 5-star offensive tackle may be an all-conference guard. Plus, an athlete who plays quarterback may be a better running back.
