Recruiting junior college prospects can be a bit of a mixed bag.
On one hand, schools usually don’t have as much competition when recruiting an individual player and that allows them to zero in on certain guys, but on the other hand, most of the top recruits in junior college are there because they’ve had some sort of issue whether it be academics or being dismissed from a former school, so there are usually a few red flags to watch for.
That’s not to say that great players don’t come out of the junior college ranks every year though.
Last year’s top junior college prospect, Auburn’s Cam Newton, who played at Blinn College for a year, is now the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy.
There is certainly talent that can be harvested from the JUCO level, so let’s take a look at ten players who could make an impact next season.
