Five Cincinnati Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. RB Jameel Poteat
Decommitted from Pitt. 5-11, 200, Scout.com’s 28th ranked running back. A four-star prospect.

2. QB Patrick Coyne
Strong arm with the ability to make all the throws. Will continue to get better with experience. Above average athlete who could also play at linebacker at the college level. Hard runner who is not afraid to take a hit or give one.

3. WR Shaquille Washington
5-9, 160, Scout.com’s 60th ranked receiver

4. S Nick Temple
5-10, 200, Scout.com’s 37th ranked safety

5. OT Parker Ehinger
6-8, 260, Scout.com’s 51st ranked offensive tackle

Five Connecticut Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. QB Michael Nebrich
Nebrich has been a very productive quarterback who has led his team to a state championship and shows great poise and pocket presence. He spreads the ball around, has good field vision and isn't afraid to throw the ball into tight spots or get vertical in the passing game. He has very good mobility and is a speedy runner who can make people miss in the open field and is dangerous outside of the pocket.

2. RB Deshon Foxx
5-10, 173, Scout.com’s 81st ranked running back

3. S Wilbert Lee
6-2, 205, Scout.com’s 63rd ranked outside linebacker

4. LB Marquise Vann
6-0, 230, Scout.com’s 63rd ranked outside linebacker

5. WR Kamal Abrams
6-0, 175, Scout.com’s 143rd ranked receiver 

Five Louisville Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. QB Teddy Bridgewater
Playing for a team like Northwestern, even as a sophomore, is a good confidence builder. Bridgewater can stand safely in the pocket for extended periods of time and read defenses without fear of being hit in most games. Bridgewater has better than average arm strength, very good accuracy, and excellent mobility. He's very good at throwing on the run in either direction, uncannily so rolling left

2. S Gerod Holliman
Holliman emerged as one of the top safeties in Miami as a junior. With ideal size to play either free or strong, Holliman also has good instincts and he's around the ball a lot. He picked off four balls as a junior, while showing good hands and ball skills. He's very competitive, too. He's still a little raw in some of his coverage techniques but he has all the tools.

3. QB DaMarcus Smith
6-0, 179, Scout.com’s 20th ranked quarterback

4. WR DeVante Parker
A big receiver with long arms making him an even bigger target, Parker is a long strider who will get stronger as he matures making his change of direction and burst out of breaks better. A good route runner, Parker does a good job of going to the ball rather than letting it come to him. A raw talent with a high ceiling.

5. S Calvin Pryor
6-2, 200, Scout.com’s 31st ranked safety

Five Pitt Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. CB/RB Lafayette Pitts
5-11, 180, Scout.com’s 12th ranked corner. A running back for his Woodland Hills team, Pitts is comfortable with the ball in his hands, but at his size, it's not hard to project him at corner. He's a fluid athlete with an easy change of direction. He is extremely calm and poised on the field, which will serve him well on his island at cornerback. He has a good frame and should be able to carry a lot more weight in muscle as he's thin. Could see time as a return man.

2. RB Malcolm Crockett
He says he can bench 245-pounds and squat 425. Crockett also runs track and may do both sports in college. He runs a 10.9 100m and a 22.7 200m.

3. RB Corey Davis
5-11, 180, Scout.com’s 63rd ranked running back

4. WR Darius Patton
5-9, 170, Scout.com’s 172nd ranked receiver

5. C Artie Rowell
6-3, 280, Scout.com’s 14th ranked center

Five Rutgers Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. RB Savon Huggins
6-0, 200, Scout.com’s 4th ranked running back. A shifty runner capable of making multiple cuts in a single run. Has excellent vision and the running instincts to set up a second tackler while running by a first. Runs with a good center of gravity and low pad level. His combination of balance and low center of gravity make him nearly impossible to get a clean hit on and he must be wrapped up to be brought down. He keeps his feet moving in traffic and runs with surprising power.

2. Marquise Wright
6-3, 265, Scout.com’s 17th ranked defensive tackle. As a senior, Wright had 56 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and nine sacks.

3. WR Miles Shuler
A quarterback for his Long Branch team, Shuler is a competent thrower, but he’s much more dangerous on the move. Throws well enough to take snaps as a wildcat quarterback in college and still be a threat to pass, but it’s his change of direction and acceleration that puts pressure on a defense. Needs to make the adjustment to slot receiver by showing he can catch in traffic and run crisp routes.

4. OT Keith Lumpkin
A very good athlete who average 12 ppg per on the basketball court while starting at Right Tackle on the football field.

5. RB Charles Davis
Davis waits for blocks to develop and explodes through the hole and is then a home run threat waiting to happen at all times. He loves to kick the play to the outside and use his speed to the advantage on the sideline. Very decisive and doesn't waste steps behind the line of scrimmage and also catches the ball very well out of the backfield. While he isn't a powerful runner, he does have very good balance and bounces off tackles.

Five South Florida Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. WR Andre Davis
Davis is going to be a quarterback favorite on the next level. He runs very good routes, he really dips his hips well when getting in and out of his routes, and he plays at a steady speed. He is not a burner that will consistently run away from defenses, but he does get separation, he does have reliable hands, and he does know how to get open. He needs to work on being more explosive and getting stronger.

2. OT Max Lang
6-5, 280, Scout.com’s 49th ranked offensive tackle

3. LB Edsel Caprice
6-2, 200, Scout.com’s 55th ranked outside linebacker

4. WR Ruben Gonzalez
6-3, 185, Scout.com’s 81st ranked receiver

5. WR Alex Mut
He is a terrific all around athlete with light feet and solid speed. Mut will catch everything thrown his way and runs precise routes with a keen understanding of the position. Mut lacks the ability to make players miss in space, he should be a possession type. He has shutdown top opposing WRs while playing CB.

Five Syracuse Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. WR Defarrel Davis
6-2, 180, four-star JUCO transfer.

2. QB Ashton Broyld
As a senior, Broyld ended up throwing for 1961 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also had 1560 rushing yards and 24 more scores. As a sophomore, Broyld threw for more than 1,800 yards and 17 touchdowns and ran for more than 600 yards while at Marshall High School. Threw for 1769 yards and 17 TDs and ran for 595 yards and 8 TDs as a junior at RHS HS.

3. LB Cameron Lynch
Lynch plays outside linebacker for his Brookwood team, and he's a very good tackler in space. He is strong enough to move inside where his height might not be as big of a liability. He is an instinctive player that would be an asset against a spread option as he makes good reads and can accelerate in tight spaces well

4. DE Donnie Simmons
Simmons size is an advantage and a disadvantage depending on where he plays in college. As a junior he lined up with his hand down and he is not your prototypical end or tackle on defense. With Simmons speed he could very easily make the move to outside linebacker. He is very quick and disruptive off the edge. He gets to the quarterback or disrupts the play a lot. He has a frame which should allow him to bulk up considerably.

5. OG Robert Trudo
6-4, 280, Scout.com’s 34th ranked guard

Five West Virginia Recruits You Should Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. S Shaquille Petteway
6-1, 200, Scout.com’s 44th ranked safety

2. CB Terrell Chestnut
A quarterback for his Pottsgrove team, Chestnut projects to another position on the field whether it be defensive back or wide receiver. He is an excellent runner with the ball, showing a great change of direction and very good top end speed. He has good size for a corner or slot receiver. Should he end up on defense, he could still make an impact with the ball in his hands as a return man

3. RB Andrew Buie
5-10, 192, Scout.com’s 49th ranked running back recruit

4. LB Jared Barber
Four-year starter who helped lead Davie to a record of 27-24, including a 9-7 mark in 2010 and an appearance in the North Carolina 4A state championship game … SuperPrep North Carolina Top 40 … Scout.com Top 50 middle linebacker … finished career with 529 total tackles, 78 tackles for loss, 18.5 sacks and one interception … 2009 Central Piedmont Conference Defensive Player of the Year … also offered by NC State and Wake Forest.

5. DE Kyle Rose
6-4, 235, Scout.com’s 68th ranked defensive end
