Quincy Jones WR Lakewood St. Edward (Ohio) --- 176 159

These guys all had great senior years. No prospect has burst onto the scene quite like Stewart this year. After moving into O'Fallon, he's been lights out on offense and defense. We love his athleticism and speed. He's a head hunter on defense as well and that's why he's added so many offers in recent months. Johnson, the Michigan commit, is in the same vein. After not camping much, he's run for nearly 2,800 yards as a senior against pretty good competition. It's not just the production though. He's a track star in a 6'1, 205-lb frame, and the upside is there.

The three MAC commits have been outstanding. Larkins had a great summer and carried it over into the season. He's versatile, able to play both DB and WR and is a football player that seems to always come up with big plays. Rush has been excellent as a senior and has his team still playing. He's consistent, accurate and mobile, and we've liked what he's done this year. Terrell is a bull. We saw him take on some of the state's top defenders and not only hold his own, but out perform some of them.

The two uncommitted guys, Bain and Jones have been good this year too. Bain is a throw back that plays every play hard and we like his toughness and competitiveness. Jones is a great athlete that plays on a running team, but we think he has a chance to be a diamond in the rough as a result.
