Spencer Adams S Matthews, N.C. Butler undecided The No. 2-rated safety in the ESPN 150 flashes all the tools to be an excellent defender at the next level. He collected over 100 tackles as a junior defensive back.
Dwayne Allen TE Fayetteville, N.C. Terry Sanford Georgia The No. 2-rated tight end in the ESPN 150 may be one of the best all-around blocking and receiving tight ends in this class.

Brandon Barnes RB/ATH Louisburg, N.C. Bunn N.C. State Another Joe McKnight type and arguably the fastest player in North Carolina. Can do it all -- run, catch, play defense and is an exciting kick returner.
Ricky Barnum OG Lakeland, Fla. Lake Gibson Undeclared Barnum might not be the biggest kid on the field but he plays with more power and physicality than his listed measurables might indicate. Versatile, athletic and sound in technique; Barnum should be a productive offensive lineman at the next level.
Martin Bayless Jr. WR/S Fresno, Texas Hightower Undeclared A long strider with an NFL pedigree. Can make the tough catch and is great at making adjustments to the ball.
John Michael Boswell OT/OG Northport, Ala. Tuscaloosa County Alabama A good line prospect who can knock a defender on his heels. He should only get better during his career at Alabama.

Ramon Buchanan LB Melbourne, Fla. Palm Bay Miami Could be one of the most underrated defensive players in the state of Florida and maybe the country. Although on the smaller side for an outside linebacker, he possesses great speed and is a fierce hitter.
Jermie Calhoun RB Van, Texas Van Oklahoma The total package at running back, much like Marc Tyler a year ago. Routinely faces 10- and 11-man fronts. Offense at Van is going to the spread, which should lead to a huge senior season.
Blake Cantu WR Southlake, Texas Carroll Oregon The ultimate do-it-all, catch-it-all possession receiver with great hands and sharp route-running skills. He reminds us of the great BYU receivers in the early 1990s. Not the fastest or quickest, but he is productive and a great competitor.

Keanon Cooper LB Dallas, Texas Skyline undecided Plays just about every defensive position at Skyline and excels at all of them. He is projected to play outside linebacker in college and is an explosive athlete with great upside.
Nick Crissman QB Huntington Beach, Calif. Edison UCLA Quick, compact release and extremely accurate. Underrated, talented passer who had a huge junior year and will receive significant exposure during his senior campaign.
Curtis Cunningham DT Littleton, Colo. Columbine Colorado Tough, explosive and should be disruptive at the next level as he continues to physically develop. Plays the game fast and with a good motor.
De'Anthony Curtis RB Camden, Ark. Fairview Arkansas Talented prospect who is falling a bit under the national radar. He blends high-carry, workhorse qualities with home-run ability in the open field; rare combination should result in a great college career.

Aundre Dean RB Katy, Texas Katy UCLA A workhorse with great leg drive and the ability to run inside and outside. UCLA got a good one from Texas.
Vaughn Dotsy OG Ventura, Calif. Saint Bonaventure undecided A mammoth guard who will surprise you with his ability to move. Possesses a great feel for zone blocking.

Mike Glennon QB Westfield, Va. Westfield N.C. State Possibly the best pure pocket passer this class has to offer. In the right scheme, he can sit and pick defenses apart. Huge pick-up for NC State.
Mike Goodman OT Miami Columbus Boston College Goodman is still relatively new to football and a little raw, but he shows a great feel for the game and has excellent upside. He is hard-nosed, physical and should give opposing defensive ends all they can handle down in Orlando.
D.J. Grant WR Austin, Texas LBJ Texas Little-known gem who could explode at the next level. He's the complete wide receiver with big-catch, big-play ability.
A.J. Green WR Ridgeville, S.C. Summerville Georgia Once he adds bulk and strength, this top-five overall prospect could get even better. He's fast, tall, very smooth and fluid.

Brandon Harris CB Miami, Fla. Booker T. Washington undecided Explosive feet and change-of-direction skills to be a shutdown, cover corner. Is great in run support, plus he doubles as a wide out.
Antoine Hicks QB/ATH Arlington, Texas Timberview Texas Going to be a better receiver than John Chiles (2007 Texas signee) would have been. Very sudden and quick for a player of his size. Underrated, both as an athlete and football player.
Will Hill QB/ATH West Orange, N.J. Saint Peter's Florida 2008's version of Joe McKnight, only Hill plays QB in high school. He can do it all and be an impact guy at multiple positions.

Omar Hunter DT Buford, Ga. Buford Notre Dame A compact and powerful defender in the trenches. He is a tough player to move off the ball and is explosive enough to get into the backfield and cause problems.
Josh Jarboe WR Ellenwood, Ga. Cedar Grove undecided Raw, but upside is awesome, and he can really run for a bigger wide receiver. He is very strong after the catch and difficult to handle one-on-one.
Janoris Jenkins CB Pahokee, Fla. Pahokee Florida Jenkins possesses the smooth hips and quick footwork highly sought after in top cornerback prospects. He flashes the skills and recovery speed to be a potential cover corner at the next level -- best football is ahead of him.

Ben Jones OC Centreville, Ala. Bibb County Georgia Versatile and tenacious, he is a tough and productive run blocker who gets into defenders and creates push. Lesser-known name who could open some eyes throughout the all-star week.
Julio Jones WR Foley, Ala. Foley undecided Most dominant wide receiver we have seen in a long time and arguably the best player in the country -- we certainly think so.
Landry Jones QB Artesia, N.M. Artesia Oklahoma Most highly-publicized recruit to come out of New Mexico maybe ever. Will play on our ESPNU this season against rival Clovis and is also an Elite 11 participant.
Uona Kaveinga ILB Lawndale, Calif. Leuzinger UCLA Kaveinga is one of the hardest hitters in the 2008 class -- period. He plays the game fast and physical from his linebacker position and consistently attacks downhill with excellent closing speed.

E.J. Manuel QB Virginia Beach, Va. Bayside Florida State Tremendous athleticism, but he's a passer first, which make him dangerous. Will push for the No. 1-ranked QB spot in the 2008 class this fall. Smart, great character and his ceiling for development is sky high.
Michael Matt FB Jeanette, Pa. Jeanette undecided Fullback, H-back, linebacker, kicking game demon and the ability to long snap to boot. Coming off knee injury in junior year.
Antoine McClain OT Anniston, Ala. Anniston undecided Offensive tackle who carries his weight well for a 300-pounder and plays with a motor. He can push a defender off the ball and has good active feet for a big man.
Brandon Moore TE Trotwood, Ohio Trotwood-Madison Michigan At 6-foot-6 and 243-pounds, he is still one of the more athletic tight ends in the country. Flashes his power forward basketball skills on the gridiron and might possess more upside than any other tight end in this class.

Terrance Parks CB Fairborn, Ga. Creekside Florida State Big, physical cornerback/safety hybrid with great ball skills. Ideal in press situations. Tons of attention will be placed on him now that Eric Berry has moved on to Tennessee.
Zebrie Sanders OT Clayton, Ohio Northmont undecided Sanders is a physically impressive offensive tackle with the tools to match. He possesses great upside when projecting for the college level; should develop into a well-balanced run and pass blocker.
Burton Scott WR/ATH Prichard, Ala. Vigor Alabama High School QB who will end up at cornerback or wide receiver. Will play corner in the AA game and is a dangerous return man. Very explosive, sudden and fast.
Jamoris Slaughter S Stone Mountain, Ga. Tucker Notre Dame Will join current high school teammate and defensive back Neiko Lipscomb in the game. He is a rare athlete who blends the coverage skills of a corner with the physicality of a strong safety.
Sean Spence LB Miami, Fla. Northwestern Miami Will join fellow Miami Northwestern teammate Aldarius Johnson in the game. He plays harder and faster than his listed measurables, racking up an amazing 151 tackles as a junior.
Kye Staley RB Guthrie, Okla. Guthrie Oklahoma State Just watch the tape and you'll see this guy is a versatile player used in the same manner as Darren McFadden at Arkansas when under center. Being recruited as a running back and safety. Under the radar guy.
Matt Stankiewitch OC/OG Schuylkill Haven, Pa. Blue Mountain Penn State A blue-collar lineman with good feet who will likely slide down from tackle to either center or guard in college.
Darryl Stonum WR Stafford, Texas Dulles Michigan Tall, lanky speedster out wide with quick hands and the ability to stretch the field.
Caleb Sturgis K St. Augustine, Fla. St. Augustine Florida Strong-legged kicker who is under the radar. Huge potential in terms of long field goal range. Leg strength will help with college kickoff rule change.

An exciting prospect who is consistently around the football and has the knack for making the big hit.
