Tupelo (MS) 31/Itawamba AHS (MS) 6
P.J. Jones Tupelo (MS) / DL
C/O 2011 | Watch Video

Scout's Take: The senior defensive lineman receiver has the size (6' 4", 275) to play at end or defensive tackle on the next level. He totaled double digit tackles, 2 sacks, and countless QB pressures in the game against Ole Miss QB commit, Maikhail Miller. Jones has all of the tools to become a big time player on the next level but will need to continue to work on his conditioning.

Matt McIntosh Tupelo (MS) / WR
C/O 2012 | Watch Video
[GALLERY:]
Scout's Take: The 6' 2", 180-pound receiver missed his junior season with an injury, but he has rebounded well and continues to be a playmaker for the Golden Wave's offense. Against Itawamba he was used in motion and possesses good body control, vision, and hands. Matt will need to continue to work in the weight room but he will definitely be one to watch in next year's class.

Terrell Pinson Tupelo HS (MS) / WR
C/O 2011 | Watch Video|
[GALLERY:]
Scout's Take: The 6' 4 ", 190- pound receiver shows big play ability in the passing and special teams departments. He returned a punt for a 55-yard TD but it was called back due to a penalty. He has great hops and can go up and get the ball but will need to continue to work on his hands and explosion for the next level.

Ashton Shumpert Tupelo HS (MS) / RB
C/O 2013| Watch Video
[GALLERY:]
Scout's Take: The 6' 2", 205-pound tailback is one of the more dynamic tailbacks to come out of Mississippi in years. He has size, power, and the ability to cut on a dime. He brings a unique dimension to the tailback slot and reminds me of a young Cadillac Williams.

Maikhail Miller Itawamba AHS (MS) / QB
C/O 2011| Watch Video
[GALLERY:]
Scout's Take: The 6' 2", 240-pound Ole Miss commit continues to show a cannon for an arm and a power running game that reminds some of Tim Tebow. He has lost a lot of weapons from last year's team, mainly Ashton Shumpert who transferred to Tupelo, but Miller seems to be taking it all in stride. He will need to continue to work on his mechanics for the next level.

Devonta Jackson Itawamba AHS (MS) / WR
C/O 2011 | Watch Video
[GALLERY:]
Scout's Take: Jackson patterns his game after Dexter McCluster. He is quick, small in stature (5' 9") and shows good speed and play making ability. Jackson will need to work on his consistency and hands for the next level.

Austin Shumpert Itawamba AHS (MS) / CB
C/O 2012 | Watch Video
[GALLERY:]
Scout's Take: Austin shows good coverage skills for someone that is as tall as he is (6' 1"). He will need to continue to work on being more physical and getting stronger for the next level but will be one to watch in next year's class.

Jimmy Ruff Itawamba AHS (MS) / WR/DB
C/O 2011 | Watch Video
[GALLERY:]
Scout's Take: A nice sized young man (6' 1", 185) who shows good enough foot speed and athleticism to play someone on the next level. He will need to continue to work on his hands and going over the middle.
