61. BYU | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive backs. It's a surprisingly mediocre class, even though Bronco Mendenhall is bringing in a ton of prospects sprayed all across the positions. The defensive front has a great one in JUCO transfer defensive tackle Maataua Brown, and offensive guard Braden Kearsley is by far the star of the class with tackle ability and the strength to play inside. The defensive backfield has more than its share of bodies with Dallin Leavitt an excellent safety out of Oregon and Kai Nacua a good one out of Nevada. JUCO transfer Trenton Trammell is going to push for a starting corner job right away, while fellow JUCO pickup Samuel Lee will see time right away somewhere in the secondary.

62. South Florida | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive linemen. Willie Taggart has built up a nice class with several decent talents. The linebacking corps has a good one in JUCO transfer Rahmon Swain and prepsters Mitchell Wright and Nigel Harris. Corner Nate Godwin leads a deep class of defensive backs, but the D is getting the most star power on the front line with Derrick Calloway a potential anchor at tackle and 310-pound Deadrin Senat a big body for the interior. Mike Love needs to add more weight, but he'll turn into a good pass rusher. The offense wasn't ignored, especially on the line with three good guards led by Dominique Threatt and Cameron Ruff.

63. Marshall | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive backs. What does the nation's best passing game need? More receivers, and Doc Holliday has brought in some interesting ones with Angelo Jean-Louis destined to be a Conference USA all-star and Deontay McManus a dangerous weapon who'll quickly put up big numbers. However, the Herd also needs to stop someone, especially someone's passing game, and the hope is for JUCO transfer Taj Letman can hold down a safety job while fellow JUCOer Lakeith Murray will push for a corner gig. Those two are good, but Chocolate Wilson has the potential to be great at corner.

64. Minnesota | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Receivers. This is when the Jerry Kill era is supposed to be hitting its stride when it comes to getting some good players to come in and take the program to another level, but that's not really happening with this class. Defensive end Owen Salzwedel needs to become a top pass rusher and offensive tackle Alex Mayes has to shine in a few years, but the key to the class will be at receiver with Drew Wolitarski out of California and De'Niro Laster out of Cleveland two big targets who could sneak their way into the rotation almost immediately.

65. Kansas State | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive ends. JUCO transfer Jake Waters has the potential to fight for the starting quarterback job right away, while Jesse Ertz fits what Bill Snyder likes to do. However, this class is big for the defensive side with end Tanner Wood one of the best recruits to come to Manhattan in a while, and JUCO transfer Devon Nash and Jamone Boyd making this a good haul of linemen. JUCO transfers De'Vondre Campbell and Nate Jackson will start soon at linebacker and corner, respectively, while linebacker Nick Ramirez is a future leader in the middle.

66. Purdue | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive line. Two years ago Danny Hope went big on beefing up the defensive front. New head coach Darrell Hazell is getting an even bigger haul for the front wall with eight prospects coming in - but don't expect an immediate impact. Tackles Antoine Miles and Johnny Daniels need time to get bigger for the interior, while Danny Ezechukwu out of Georgia has the potential to be a pass rushing terror down the line. The offense isn't being ignored with running backs Keyante Green and David Yancey to pack a 1-2 punch by 2016.

67. Duke | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive backs. It's an easy recruiting pitch. Our secondary was awful and there are several holes needing to be filled - come to Duke and play defensive back right away. Corners Johnell Barnes, Evrett Edwards and Deondre Singleton all have the potential to be an instant upgrade, while safeties Chris Holmes and Jake Kite were nice gets. David Cutcliffe isn't going to totally ignore the offense, picking up quarterback Parker Boehme and running back Joseph Ajeigbe.

68. San Diego State | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive back. The defensive line is getting two fantastic prospects in Dakota Turner and Jordan Watson, and the receiving corps is getting some help with Julius Wilson and Joe Morrow two good-sized targets, but this class is about the secondary with corners Charles Okonkwo and Kalan Montgomery along with safety Marcus Stamps leading a loaded group. It's not a stretch to call this the Mountain West's best area of improvement this recruiting season. Sergio Phillips will soon be the team's starting center.

69. East Carolina | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Wide receivers. The Pirates went big on offense last year, too, and now there are more weapons to add to the lot. Linebacker Devaris Brunson is the best new recruit, and offensive tackle Brandon Smith will eventually start, but Isaiah Jones and Trevon Brown could be the keys to a deep group of receivers to help the Ruffin McNeill passing game shine. Kurt Benkert is a good quarterback pickup who committed early and should be a factor by 2015.

70. Georgia Tech | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Skill players. Quarterback was addressed last season, but that still didn't stop Damon Mitchell from signing on. Travis Custis will eventually be a star among the running backs, while Donovan Wilson should bring a little bit of pop. JuMichael Ramos fits the Georgia Tech mold of big receiver. Offensive tackle Shamire DeVine is a massive big body who's ready to roll out of the box, while the defensive front has few nice options led by tackle Darius Commissiong and end Kevin Robbins.
