All 5-star recruits arrive on their college campuses with a ton of hype. However, not all of them deliver on the huge promise they showed as recruits.
Over the past few recruiting cycles, college football has seen several former 5-star recruits live up to their billing. For this upcoming 2014 season, several former 5-star prospects figure to finally show why they were such coveted recruits coming out of high school.
Whether it be a coaching change, a conquering of the depth chart or just an abundance of natural talent, these guys are ready.
Alabama has a tight end who figures to have a big season, while a versatile defensive back at Michigan is too talented to not immediately deliver on his hype. Plus, a former No. 1 overall recruit will really turn heads this year in the SEC.
