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

1. QB Parker Boehme
No. 62 quarterback, three stars

He's a powerful runner who isn't afraid to initiate contact with opposing defenders. He'll take a LB head on and get the necessary yardage. He ran for just under 1,000 yards as a JR and accounted for a lot of TD's on the ground. Down near the goal line, especially, he's a major weapon because of his ability to run the football. He's also a skilled passer. He takes good care of the football. He's accurate.

2. CB Johnell Barnes
No. 38 cornerback, three stars

Exceptionally quick, Barnes is young for his grade and is just coming into his own physically. At 6-0, 170 his ceiling is at cornerback right now, but we think he ends up getting much bigger. Long frame with a body to add weight, this is a competitor who plays with the game with a lot of savvy. Former quarterback that made big plays at wide-out all season long. Capable of making defenders miss in space. Has the loose hips to play corner.

3. C Austin Davis
No. 23 center, three stars

4. S Chris Holmes
No. 77 safety, three stars

5. RB Joseph Ajeigbe
No. 81 running back, three stars

1. OT Shamire DeVine
No. 15 offensive tackle, four stars

DeVine moves and bends very well for an offensive lineman with his size. His arm length is good, he is light on his feet, and he consistently displays good balance and body control. He does need to work on his technique, holding his blocks, and continue to add strength to his frame in both lower and upper-body. He has a lot of potential, he has size you cannot coach, and has a lot of tools that will attract college coaches.

2. RB Travis Custis
No. 34 running back, four stars

Custis is a true downhill running back. He is a force when running through the hole, he sheds would-be tacklers with the best of them, and he runs with good pad level. He is not a back that will break the 80 yarders, but he has good foot quickness through the hole, and he hits the hole quickly when it opens. He is also a back that can get positive yards when nothing is there. He is durable, he is strong, and he is productive.

3. K Harrison Butker
No. 3 kicker, three stars

Butker made 16 of 17 field goals, a success rate of 94.1 percent. He also made his last dozen field goals to help Westminster to the second round of the playoffs. Butker also excelled in kickoffs and punting to round out a spectacular junior season. Nine of his 16 field goals were from 41 yards or more and he made 20 of 22 extra points (one miss was the result of a bad hold). He drilled 47 touchbacks on 59 kickoffs and averaged 39.5 yards on 33 punts. Four of Butker’s punts were more than 50 yards with six downed inside the opponent’s 20. He averaged 67.3 yards per kickoff with a 3.87 hang time.

4. DT Darius Commissiong
No. 39 defensive tackle, three stars

5. DE Kevin Robbins
No. 55 defensive end, three stars

1. QB Kevin Olsen
No. 4 quarterback, four stars

A technician, Olsen has a very clean, quick release and is very accurate with the ball whether going deep or throwing underneath. He put good touch on his passes, rarely trying to overthrow. Olsen is a good athlete with excellent footwork. He is a good scrambler and throws well on the run. He'll continue to get bigger and strong as he matures. He has an excellent frame. One of the best pure passers in the nation.

2. WR Stacy Coley
No. 8 receiver, four stars

Coley has the tools to be a number one receiver on the next level. He is a very fluid wideout with speed, a quick burst off the ball, and great body control. He can be a homerun threat down the field and make a big play in space as a wideout or return man. He is still very thin and he needs to add weight and strength, but that will come in time. He can run more crisp routes as well. In the end, he can be as good as he wants to be.

3. DE Alquadin Muhammad
No. 8 defensive end, four stars

Muhammad has outside linebacker size and quickness from his defensive end spot. He terrorizes offensive tackles with his quickness off the edge, and he's surprisingly strong against the run. He has the frame to grow into a fulltime defensive end in college or could see some time at outside linebacker depending on scheme. A heady player who reads the option well and is a weapon in passing situations.

4. S Jamal Carter
No. 17 safety, four stars

Carter is a very talented safety prospect who has the size and tackling ability to play up near the box as a strong safety. He's also athletic enough and has the necessary ball skills to play free safety in college.

5. TE Standish Dobard
No. 7 tight end, four stars

Dobard is a prototypical tight end with his combination of size, speed, and toughness. He is a solid blocker, but he can also line up outside, and create mismatches. He can still improve his route-running and his quickness out of his cuts, but he has a good mix of what it takes to be an every down tight end on the next level. He has very strong hands, he can block down, and he can make plays.

1. DT Greg Webb
No. 10 defensive tackle, four stars

Webb is a compact defensive tackle who missed most of his senior season because of an ACL tear. He showed flashes of his ability at Army Bowl practice with a quick first step, a full array of pass rushing skills and a high motor before wearing down from a lack of conditioning after not playing for a year. Webb has played a lot of end, and it shows with his pass rush, he's plenty strong to move inside and occupy a double team.

2. QB Mitch Trubisky
No. 15 quarterback, four stars

3. RB T.J. Logan
No. 28 running back, four stars

4. DE Dajuan Drennon
No. 29 defensive end, four stars

5. S Desmond Lawrence
No. 28 safety, four stars

2. S Tim Harris
No. 27 safety, four stars

3. QB Corwin Cutler
No. 48 quarterback, three stars

4. OT Sadiq Olanrewaju
No. 35 offensive tackle, three stars

5. CB Kirk Garner
No. 41 cornerback, three stars

- Virginia Tech | Signing Class

1. CB Kendall Fuller
No. 3 cornerback, five stars

Fuller is outstanding on both sides of the ball for his Good Counsel team. He can lineup at receiver or any of the defensive back positions. He got a lot bigger as a senior and could see himself as a free safety one day. He still has cornerback skills and excels in press coverage because of his strength. Very instinctive player who has great field vision.

2. LB Holland Fisher
No. 3 outside linebacker, four stars

Plays inside and outside linebacker, but with his size he projects best on the outside. He runs extremely well and has a quick first step. Doesn't take on blockers, so much as he seems to bounce off of them in order to make a tackle. His ability to disengage from a would-be blocker is astounding. He can run sideline to sideline and does a good job in pass coverage. A 3-down linebacker who shouldn't have to leave the field.

3. DT Wyatt Teller
No. 28 defensive tackle, four stars

4. LB Andrew Motuapuaka
No. 24 middle linebacker, three stars

5. QB Bucky Hodges
No. 43 quarterback, three stars
