111. Army | The 2013 Recruiting Class  

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive linemen. The Knights have a decent quarterback recruit in Kado Brown, and there are plenty of running backs and receivers for the offense to work with. Offensive guard Patrick Joseph is the team's top recruit and might be needed sooner than later, and there are plenty of linebackers are bring brought in to add more speed and athleticism to the position. The talent, though, should be on the defensive line with ends Andrew McLean and Caleb Newman each good enough to have played at bigger schools. The each need to turn into pass rushers, and next year, the coaching staff has to find more bulk for the interior.

112. Massachusetts | The 2013 Recruiting Class  

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Receivers. There might not be a Victor Cruz in the bunch, but Shaquille Harris was a good get out of Florida and E.J. Burston and D.J. Woods out of Florid will bring some depth. JUCO transfer Josh Bruns could find a job right away on the offensive line, while defensive ends Shane Huber and Peter Ngobidi are going to eventually be key starters. The hope is for big bomber Todd Stafford to become the trigger man for the passing attack in the next few years.

113. Akron | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Linebackers. The secondary is getting several pieces including corner Mykel Traylor-Bennett and JUCO transfer Donte Williams, and quarterback Tommy Woodson and receiver Austin Wolf will end up making an impact down the road, but best position is linebacker with local products Jerome Lane and Deontae Moore eventual starters, and JUCO transfer Jon Shelby bringing some instant depth.

114. Tulane | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Quarterbacks. With starter Ryan Griffin done, three big passers are coming in with JUCO transfer Nick Montana looking to fill the void immediately after starting out his career at Washington. The secondary is getting the most overall help with safety Nico Marley leading a deep class and Richard Allen and Parry Nickerson adding speed to the outside. Local product, guard Kenneth Santa Marina, is the team's best prospect and needs to add more to the ground game as soon as possible.

115. Louisiana Tech | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Linebackers. Can Skip Holtz take advantage of some strong classes brought in by Sonny Dykes? The coaching change made life harder this recruiting season, but there are still some decent prospects coming in, especially at linebacker with JUCO transfers Nick Thomason and Mitchell Villemez each expected to help out the nation's worst defense right away. Wide receiver Ladell Marshall and end Nicholas Bickham are good prospects for down the road.

116. Kent State | The 2013 Recruiting Class  

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... The offensive backfield. The Golden Flashes aren't exactly building on their amazing 2012 season, but they're getting a couple of decent players here and there with linebackers Ryan Seibert and Dustyn Moore to eventually be main tacklers, and tight end Brock Macaulay a shining star for the passing game. The stars of the haul are on offense with running back Roman Clay talented enough to eventually carry the workload, while quarterback Nathan Struck is the star of the class with a live arm and tremendous upside.

117. Troy | The 2013 Recruiting Class  

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Running back. After rocking with the Sun Belt's best recruiting classes over the last few years, there weren't too many openings. Guard Taylor Edwards was a good get, and some decent defensive backs were signed, but the best players are for the offensive backfield with the signing of Tim Longmire out of Tallahassee and fullback Josh Anderson, who could've gone to a much bigger school.

118. Buffalo | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Receivers. There weren't many spots open in the recruiting class after a few huge hauls, and once again the Bulls are going after the passing game. JUCO linebacker Blake Bean is an interesting option to help on the outside right away and quarterback James Coleman will be groomed to be in the mix in 2016. Receivers Jamarl Eiland out of Michigan and DuBois Ross are the two best players in the class, but it might take a few years before they make any sort of impact.

119. Florida Atlantic | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Players from outside of Florida. Carl Pelini is starting to settle in a bit, but he's not exactly putting a fence around the State of Miami. JUCO transfer Jacquez Johnson is a smallish quarterback from Mississippi who'll try to get the woeful offense going, while guard Austin Bland and JUCO transfer Braden Lyons will get a long look for the O line. Defensive tackles Lance Burlingame from Massachusetts and Derek Butcher from North Dakota are JUCO transfers brought in to fight for time in the interior. The best players in the class, though, are at linebacker with Robert Relf and Andrew Curtis both coming in from Brophy College Prep in Arizona.

120. Florida International | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Offensive linemen. The coaching change has made it interesting to try bringing in local recruits, but offensive tackle Sandley Jean-Felix is still coming in and should turn into an anchor. Guard Jordan Budwig is big and can hit, while Jason Rae is a short blocker with upside. Now Ron Turner needs more decent defensive players to work into the rotation.

121. Arkansas State | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive backs. It's not a star-studded class, but it's not too bad considering the coaching change. JUCO transfer Chandler Rogers will boost the quarterback depth, while defensive tackle Logan Carl was a great get who'll eventually anchor the line. Eventually, receiver Dijon Paschal will be a No. 1 target. Safety Jeremy Fulcher and corner Mark Johnson lead a deep group of defensive back options to build around for the next few seasons.

122. UTEP | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... 2014. It's a small class for Sean Kugler to deal with after a few years of loading up on bodies under Mike Price. Quarterback Mark Leftwich is an interesting option, but he'll likely have to wait in line with the 2011 class of passers maturing. JUCO transfer Nick Gathrite will try to produce for the passing game right away as a key receiver, while JUCOer Jameel Erving and freshman Jaylon Scott will bring the most immediate help at corner.

123. Georgia State | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive linemen. The Panthers need to boost up the talent level almost everywhere, and it's going to start on the defensive line with JUCO transfer George Rogers out of Miami and end Mackendry Cheridor two nice pieces to work around for the next few seasons. Linebacker Kight Dallas will one day be the team's leading tackler, while Kingsley Ejike is a nice athlete for somewhere in the corps. The offense is going the JUCO route for backfield depth getting quarterback Clay Chastain and running back Gerald Howse, but receiver Calvain Holmes might be the team's best pickup for the O.

124. North Texas | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Offensive linemen. Dan McCarney likes his offensive linemen, and after a year when the Mean Green front five was so strong in pass protection, he knows how to coach them. JUCO transfers Justin Manu at tackle and Shawn McKinney at center are at least ready to step in and help out with the depth, while guards Harrison Sorge, Dominic Walker and Hunter Siddons will be starters in three years. JUCO transfer Brock Berglund is an interesting option to at least fight for the No. 2 job.

125.
ULM | 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Offensive linemen. Quarterback Bivins Caraway is a smallish baller who could fit the Kolton Browning mode, and tight end Everett Anderson was a good signing for an offense that could use as many targets as possible for down the road, but the offensive line got the biggest boost with tackle Chase Regian the best option in the class and guards Trey Martin and Matt Oubre good interior blockers who could be big factors with a few years in the weight room. Defensive tackle David Elias will someday be a factor as an interior pass rusher.

126. New Mexico State | The 2013 Recruiting Class

The 2013 Class Is Heavy On ... Receivers. It's a tough beat for Doug Martin with almost no time to work and no conference to sell to prospects, but he's doing what he can. Linebacker Brandon Hines is a nice get out of Texas, and running back Marquette Washington has the speed and size to end up working the offense around, but the key might be the receiving corps. Jerrion Burton and James Ooten out of California will eventually be starters, while Prentavious Morehead will someday be a No. 1 target.
