2009 CFN Recruiting Rankings

90. Wyoming | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Receiver. Austyn Carta-Samuels has to throw to someone. After hitting the jackpot and getting a quarterback who could play right away last year, the Cowboys now need to upgrade the passing game with more dangerous targets. JUCO transfers Mazi Ogbonna and DeJay Lester need to be a big part of the offense right away, while C.J. Morgan will be a speedy target who could be the No. 1 in the near future. On the other side of the ball, JUCO transfer Austin Daniels might start right away at one corner.

89. FIU | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Willis Wright. In a major "huh?" moment, Wright, a very strong, very fast safety prospect who could become a whale of a wide receiver or two-way player, signed with FIU despite receiving offers from Auburn, Miami, Ole Miss, Nebraska, and several other BCS schools. He's the star of a really nice group of defensive players brought in with a special emphasis on the defensive front. Seven defensive linemen were signed including Jordan White, a 320-pound tackle.

88. Tulane | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Linebackers. The Green Wave has to do something about its defense, and while there isn't any instant help from this class, there are plenty of safety-sized athletes who will upgrade the athleticism and the potential. Ray Oppman will be a fixture on the inside within the next three years, while Zach Davis could be an ideal strong safety or a dangerous playmaker as an outside linebacker. Jamar Thomas has the potential to be the next great Green Wave running back.

87. Hawaii | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive linemen. It's Hawaii so the passing game was hardly ignored with a slew of new receivers signed to go along with QB Kevin Spain from Arizona, but this class is all about the defense and all about getting better up front. There isn't the JUCO influx of last year when head coach Greg McMackin looked to immediately patch all the gaping holes. This is about the strength in numbers with seven linemen of all shapes and sizes to build around.

86. Navy | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Linemen. As always, Navy brought in a ton of running backs to use and move around where needed. Dylan Chynoweth is the best of the lot, but Ryan Williams could be more explosive. Seven defensive linemen were signed on with the potential stars on the ends led by Daniel Godkin, who could've gone several other places, and possible speed rusher Joseph Champaign. The Navy defensive line will actually have a little bit of size with the addition of 6-0, 280-pound Brice Musgrove for the inside.

85. New Mexico | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Wide receivers. After bringing aboard a slew of quarterbacks last year, the Lobos needed an upgrade in receiving talent for the near future. Head coach Mike Locksley, even after a bizarre and disastrous 2009, was able to use his talents as a recruiter, which was considered his strength when hired, to sign on four receivers led by Joshua Ford from Washington D.C., Locksley's pipeline that brought in so much talent to Illinois, and Detchauz Wray. Even with all the quarterbacks in last year's class, Locksley was still able to get Tarean Austin out of Florida.

84. Kansas State | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... JUCO transfers. If it's Kansas State there are going to be Junior College transfers. Overall this is a mediocre class with the bulk of the players for the near future coming in last year, especially in the secondary, and Bill Snyder is going for the immediate boost to get the program back over the hump and into Big 12 South title contention. Matthew Pearson will start somewhere in the secondary and Adam Davis will be used from Day One on the line as a pass rusher. In the freshman class, linebackers Tre Walker and Laton Dowling will be the keys to the 2013 Wildcat defense.

83. Air Force | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Linebacker. This is a diverse class with a little something for all spots, but for the second straight season the top players are on the defensive side. Linebacker got the biggest influx of talent with three interesting prospects including Austin Arias, a safety-sized tackling machine who got a little interest from the Arizona schools but was too small for a big-time program. He, along with Joey Nichol and Seth Kline, will be the keys to the defense in a few years.

82. San Jose State | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Defensive linemen. SJSU had one of the smallest classes in the country last year, and it made up for it by loading up this year for both sides of the ball. New coach Mike MacIntyre is a defensive head coach and he needed bodies up front. He got them, led by stud JUCO transfer Ah'Keem McKinney, who'll likely be penciled in as a starting tackle. JUCO transfers Andrew Moeaki and Ja'Rodd Watson also add some instant beef up front, while speed ends Sean Bacon, Marcus Howard, and Vince Buhagiar are for the future.

81. Western Michigan | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Offensive potential. The Broncos beefed up the line with last year's class creating the foundation for this year's haul of skill players to potentially roll. Mike Perish and Zack Wynn will battle it out for the starting quarterback spot sooner than later, while running backs Dareyon Chance, Tevin Drake, and Weston Ross all provide something difference and should all the offense to be more ground oriented than in the past.

80. Marshall | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Receivers. If nothing else, new head man Doc Holliday will have plenty of pass catchers to use in a rotation. Last year's Herd class was full of big, strong receivers. This year's class is loaded with small, quick ones led by the lightning-quick Fred Pickett. Josh Lovell is a do-it-all tight end who could be good enough to be better than Cody Slate with a little bit of work, while Jazz King, Antwon Chisolm, and Demetrius Evans are all talented enough to be given a long look for early playing time. New quarterback Eddie Sullivan will have plenty of practice options to play around with.

79. Troy | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Greg Jenkins to Brett Moncrief. The Trojans are now known for their high-powered offense and huge passing numbers, and they got a couple of stars to keep the production rolling. Greg Jenkins is an athletic JUCO transfer with the ability to step in and take over Levi Brown's old starting spot right away. Adding to the receiver talent is Brett Moncrief, a 6-3, 205-pound JUCO transfer who looks the NFL part. He could've gone to Ole Miss or Mississippi State, but chose Troy. On defense, the recent struggles in the secondary were addressed with seven corners signed including Dionte Ponder, a ready-made playmaker with big-time upside.

78. Memphis | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Quarterbacks. New head coach Larry Porter isn't going to start out his era without any firepower. JUCO running back Ketarus Stanton and running back Jerrell Rhodes and Sean Farr from Hargrave Military Academy might be plugged in immediately. It'll be an interesting battle for the starting quarterback gig with four passers brought in. Kevin Wright is the best of the bunch, but JUCO transfer Andy Summerlin is ready right now. He'll be in spring ball and might have the inside track for the No. 1 spot.

77. UTEP | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Receivers. The Miners have needed to work on improving the defense for the last several seasons and came up with a big class of defenders last season. The D was hardly ignored this year, especially on the line, but the talent is at receiver eight very big, very interesting prospects signed including Jordan Leslie, Darius Tubbs, and Devin Patterson. These three will be the key to the Miner passing game sooner than later.

76. Temple | Scout List
The Class Is Heavy On ... Skill players. For a program that has struggled so much to put points on the board, and has had so many issues getting things moving through the air, the passing game got some special attention. Al Golden has gone big on skill guys in the past, and last year was supposed to be about the offensive line and RB Bernard Pierce turned into something special. This year, RB Myron Ross is a big thumper who should make a difference while WRs Antonio Belt and Deon Miller might be better than anyone currently on the roster. This is an instant impact class of receivers.
