Ten to watch in the Class of '08
With the Class of '07 signed, sealed and waiting to be delivered to college campuses, Scouts Inc. turns its attention to the Class of 2008. Though we won't begin evaluating players from this class until March, here are 10 players to watch:
WR Julio Jones (Foley, Ala.)
Big, physical and fast. He will be a favorite among SEC schools.
WR A.J. Green (Summerville, S.C.)
Big wide receiver already has committed to Georgia and sports plenty of other offers. Already one of the more publicized recruits in the class.
RB Darrell Scott (Moorpark, Calif./St. Bonaventure)
Big back with the size to run inside and the speed to make plays outside. Transferred from Moorpark High School.
DT Marcus Forston (Miami, Fla./Northwestern)
One half of a very talented defensive tackle duo on an excellent Miami Northwestern team.
RB Eric Smith (Seffner, Fla./Armwood)
Will look to rebound from an injury-shortened junior season in 2006. A big-bodied back with surprising quickness.
RB Sam McGuffie (Cypress, Texas/Cy-Fair)
He has a diminutive stature with big-play capability and can be considered an overachiever.
OL J.B. Shugarts (Klein, Texas)
An offensive tackle who fits the physical mold and is already receiving major attention.
CB Terrance Parks (Fairburn, Ga./Creekside)
Already has several SEC offers, and his big frame for a corner will undoubtedly draw him more attention.
OT Khaled Holmes (Santa Ana, Calif./Mater Dei)
Brother Alex was highly recruited before picking USC, and Khaled will cause a big stir of his own. He's already receiving national attention from recruiters.
Scouts Inc. recruiting analysts Tom Luginbill and Craig Haubert contributed to this report.
