51. Louisville | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Linemen. Receiver James Quick is the best recruit by any Big East team, and Kyle Bolin is a good quarterback to develop under Teddy Bridgewater, but the class is about the lines and building up the infrastructure. The offensive side gets Cameron Fraser and Skylar Lacy at tackle - both have the right frame and body to be effective after a few years in the weight room - while defensive tackles De'Asian Richardson and Finesse Middleton are nice gets. Linebacker Donel Elam will eventually be a starter, and Keith Kelsey will someday be one of the team's leading tacklers.

52. Northwestern | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Running backs. It's possible this will turn out to be the best class in the Pat Fitzgerald era. Matthew Alviti will someday be the starting quarterback with the smarts and the quickness to fit the Wildcat offense to a T. In an interesting get, Fitzgerald managed to bring in two of the nation's top center prospects in Brad North and Tyler Lancaster, and snagging safety Godwin Idwebuike and corner Marcus McShepard out of Ohio was terrific. However, after going big on skill players and running backs for the last few years, Fitzgerald and his staff are trying to improve the ground game once again with Keith Watkins out of Ohio and speedsters Warren Long and Xavier Menifield out of California.

53. Kansas | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... JUCO. Charlie Weis needs to improve his team in a hurry, and he's looking at the junior colleges to do it. Marquel Combs is a sure-thing defensive tackle starter out of California, while end Chris Martin is a ready-made pass rusher out of City College of California. Cassius Sendish, Kevin Short and Dexter McDonald are being brought in to help the secondary right away, while Rodriguez Coleman and Mark Thomas are going to help out the receiver depth. There are some decent prep talents coming in, too, with quarterback Jordan Darling and tight end Ben Johnson to eventually be a pitch-and-catch option.

54. TCU | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Linebacker. It's TCU, so don't get too comfortable with the idea of positions - Gary Patterson will move the talents around. However, the stars are at outside linebacker with Sammy Douglas, Paul Whitmill and Dac Shaw all safety sized with terrific speed and athleticism. The secondary got a boost with Ranthony Texada and George Baltimore, while the offense is bringing in a good one in running back Kyle Hicks. Bryson Burtnett and Charlie Reid are two good tight ends to eventually work the passing game around.

55. Stanford | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Linebacker. It's not a superior class compared to recent hauls, but the Cardinal came up with some nice gets led by receiver Francis Owusu and guard Dave Bright for the offense. However, with the recent run of great tight ends, the program hasn't had a problem getting its share of good prospects, bringing in Greg Taboada, Austin Hooper and Eric Cotton. The best overall recruits are on defense with Peter Kalambayi out of North Carolina and Kevin Palma two tough guys for the interior, and Sean Barton a nice option for the outside.

56. Colorado | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Offensive linemen. What do you get for the team that needs everything? Infrastructure, coming up with a few nice defensive ends, led by Jimmie Gilbert out of College Station, Texas, and loading up on offensive linemen. There aren't any sure-thing stars, but Colin Sutton and Jonathan Huckins are promising guards, and tackles Sam Kronshage and Gunnar Graham will be groomed for down the road. The offense is also getting a little more help with Devin Ross and a few good receivers, while the defense is getting a killer with George Frazier at middle linebacker.

57. Houston | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Quarterback. Who wants to be the next Case Keenum or Kevin Kolb? John O'Korn out of the Miami area has the size and the look of a high-octane playmaker, while D'Juan Hines and JUCO transfer Billy Cosh will provide some nice depth in the near future. Running back Joseph Glenn is the second best recruit for the offense behind O'Korn, while receiver Demarcus Ayers is a speedster with good upside. Tight ends Deondre Skinner and Chauntez Jackson are good recruits for a team that always uses its offensive options. The team's best recruit is Ty Cummings, considered the nation's top kicker prospect, while linebacker Caleb Tucker and corner Greg Ward are decent players to eventually give the D some help.

58. Wake Forest | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Outside linebacker. This is a massive class with a little bit for everyone. The line got a future starting tackle in Taylor Chambers, while Josh Harris could be better, and center Cory Helms will someday be the quarterback up front. The bulk is on defense with several outside linebacker prospects led by Wendell Dunn and Lance Virgile, who'll bring speed along with the size to add several pounds of good weight, while Ford Howell and Ali Lamot are going to be factors. Brad Watson will be a starting corner sooner than later.

59. Iowa State | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Offensive linemen. The Cyclones need more firepower to keep up with the Big 12 powerhouses, and they went hard after quarterbacks bringing in three options in Joel Lanning, Trevor Hodge and Alton Meeks. The line is getting the big reinforcements with tackle Jake Campos the star of the clas, and Shawn Curtis out of Orlando a decent prospect who just needs a little time in the weight room. JUCO tackle Rodney Coe and prepster J.D. Waggoner add talent to the defensive front.

60. Connecticut | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... The passing game. UConn needs more offensive weapons, and it's trying to get them for the passing game with quarterbacks Tim Boyle and Richard Lagow each big passers who can push the ball down the field, and if everything works out well, Noel Thomas, Brian Lemelle and tight end Tommy Myers should help make the air show go. Corner Javon Hadley from Miami is one of the team's better recruits, and linebacker Jalen Stevens is a good get out of South Carolina, but inside linebackers Junior Joseph, Cory Jasudowich and Matt Walsh are all interesting big-tackling prospects.
