WR Elliot Faerber, a 6-foot-4, 190-pounder from Shawnee Mission East High in Kan., is talked about as being one of the most under the radar players in the region, despite the fact that he is already committed to play for a BCS school.
TE/WR Jason Croom, a 6-foot-5, 233-pounder from Norcross High in Ga., holds offers and is considering schools like FSU, Tennessee, Miami, Mississippi and Mississippi State. He is rated as a 4-star receiver, but is built like a tight end. It will be interesting to see where he falls after seeing him amongst some other top receiver targets.
WR Roger Lewis, a 6-foot-2, 190-pounder from Pickerington Central High in Ohio was named as the WR MVP at Ohio State and has been on fire this summer, tearing up camp stop after camp stop. He has over 10 offers already.
TE Darrion Hutcherson, a 6-foot-7, 245-pounder from Dadeville High in Ala., will be the third huge receiving target on the roster and proves that this squad went big with its roster strategy. The Scout.com 4-star is already committed to Auburn and will catch passes from his future QB.
LB Deaysean Rippy, a 6-foot-2, 200-pounder from Sto-Rox High in Pa., is a Scout.com 4-star who is considering schools like Florida State, Florida, Ohio State, West Virginia, and USC. He is as good in coverage as a defensive back. A lot of schools are looking at Rippy as a potential safety prospect.
LB Steve Longa, a 6-foot-2, 210-pounder from Saddle Brook High in N.J., has plus speed and moves well laterally as well. The Scout.com 3-star is committed to Rutgers.
CB Jalen Mills, a 6-foot-0, 180-pounder from DeSoto High in Texas has seen a spike in his recruitment as of late and now has offers from Baylor, Virginia, Kansas, Houston, Iowa State, Memphis, Tulsa, North Texas, Colorado State, Utah State, UTEP on the table.
The team will also use a little bit of youth. 2014 prospect S Brandon Simmons from Mansfield Timberview High in Texas recently picked up his first offer from SMU. Also it is noteworthy that seventh grade Junio Rank All-American Graham Gillispie will be getting the chance to show his wares against the big boys.
