Top 5 East Carolina Recruits To Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. OT Jonathan McLaughlin
6-5, 280, Scout.com 69th ranked, three-star offensive tackle. Physically at 6'5 272 pounds his frame looks like he could possibly carry some additional weight if needed but he's still very impressive at this point. Has shown the ability to dominate at times but we'd like to see it on a more consistent basis. Hand placement and holding his blocks longer are other areas where he can improve his stock at this point. Gets down the field well to block for his backs. Has a lot of the tools to be a prospect with great upside especially if he adds a mean streak while he's on the field. Good student in the classroom with a 3.5 GPA. - Kerry Fair of SCPrepNation.com

2. S Lucas Thompson
6-2, 190, Scout.com 96th ranked, three-star safety. Prep coach Chip Petree told the Orlando Sentinel that Thompson "very easily could be a 4-3 outside linebacker. He run very well and has the potential to be a very large human being.”

3. WR Jabrill Solomon
6-2, 180, Scout.com 102nd ranked, three-star receiver.

Top 5 Southern Miss Recruits To Care About
Player writeups by Scout.com

1. QB Anthony Alford
6-1, 210, Scout.com 10th ranked, four-star quarterback. Alford is a true dual threat quarterback who is not just the best athlete on the team taking snaps. He could play several positions on the college level, but quarterback looks to be his best bet. When things break down, Alford is at his best. He can really frustrate a defense with his ability to evade pressure. He has a big time arm and at time he tries to a little too much with the football. Anthony is still very raw, but has a high ceiling.

2. S Marcus Turner
6-0, 195, Scout.com 67th ranked, three-star safety.

3. DT Dalvin Craft
6-3, 290, Scout.com 83rd ranked, three-star safety.
