Sonny's Top 100 in Louisiana for the class of 2012

Rank Previous Name High School Pos. Size
1 1 Landon Collins Dutchtown S 6-0/202
Collins will make an instant impact at either LSU or Bama
 
2 2 Torshiro Davis Woodlawn  DE 6-3/220
Davis has the speed and explosiveness to play DE or LB at LSU
   
3 3 Denzell Devall Bastrop DE 6-3/240
Like Torshiro Davis, Devall could play DE or LB for Bama
   
4 8 Ronnie Feist West St. John OLB 6-2/230
Feist will get a jump on learning John Chavis' system in January
   
5 6 John Thomas Airline TE 6-5/245
Thomas missed his entire senior season but rehab is ahead of schedule
   
6 7 Lamar Louis Breaux Bridge ATH 5-11/215
The only question with Louis is will he end up at RB or LB in Baton Rouge?
   
7 4 Lorenzo Phillips Patterson OLB 6-2/205
Phillips had another banner year for the Lumberjacks despite dropping a few spots
   
8 5 Dwayne Thomas O.P. Walker CB 6-0/175
The opposition rarely threw at Thomas but he still picked off four passes
   
9 12 Derrick Raymond East Jefferson CB 6-0/165
Raymond is raw but the speedster has a high ceiling with his length and athleticism
   
10 9 Davante' Bourque Crowley RB 6-2/205
Size and speed are two of Bourque's biggest attributes but he's a good all-around RB
   
11 16 Derek Edinburgh Edna Karr OT 6-8/315
Edinburgh has worked hard in the weight room and could be a star down the road
   
12 20 Travin Dural Breaux Bridge WR 6-2/175
Dural made one of the biggest jumps in our rankings with a sensational senior year
   
13 13 Jerald Hawkins West St. Mary OT 6-6/280
Hawkins is versatile enough to play several positions but his future is on the o-line
   
14 22 Deion Jones Jesuit OLB 6-2/215
This class is loaded with LB's and Jones proved he is one of the best 
   
15 19 James McFarland West Monroe OLB 6-1/240
McFarland's motor never stops and he was the leader on West Monroe's defense
   
16 11 Dillon Gordon John Curtis TE 6-5/250
Gordon is a terrific in-line blocker and has the body to see early playing time at LSU
   
17 27 Alonzo Moore Winnfield ATH 6-2/195
Moore was one of the top players at the state championships and could play WR or DB
   
18 23 Otha Peters Covington OLB 5-11/215
Peters is one of the hardest hitting LB's in this class
   
19 10 Darion Monroe East St. John CB 5-9/170
Size is the biggest question mark with Monroe but he has excellent cover skills
   
20 18 Jerqwinick Sandolph Hahnville S 6-1/200
Sandolph is physical and has a good combination of size and speed
   
21 21 Kavahra Holmes Breaux Bridge WR 6-2/170
Holmes is a big-time deep threat with his blazing speed
   
22 46 Jacoby Briscoe Carencro DT 6-4/285
The knock on Briscoe was that he took too many plays off but he was steady in 2011
   
23 24 Trey Granier Thibodaux MLB 6-2/230
Granier is smart and instinctive in the middle
   
24 17 Terrell Lathan West Monroe DE 6-3/245
Lathan has all of the potential in the world but is too inconsistent
   
25 15 Julien Obioha Brother Martin DE 6-3/235
Obioha didn't have the senior year to support his early ranking but has a bright future 
   
26 25 Bryan Singleton Destrehan DT 6-3/255
Singleton is one of two Destrehan DL headed to Houston
   
27 33 Devon Breaux Donaldsonville ATH 6-0/180
Most project Breaux as a WR or CB if he ends up at Tulane
   
28 29 Lloyd Grogan Central Catholic OLB 6-1/200
Grogan could be a terrific safety or linebacker at the next level
   
29 30 Tylor Harris Episcopal DE 6-3/255
Harris backed up his spring and summer on the camp circuit with a good senior year
   
30 28 Daniel Taylor Lutcher RB 5-9/170
What Taylor lacks in size he makes up for with speed and quickness
   
31 48 Gerron Borne East St. John DT 6-2/290
Borne's senior season quieted some of his critics including myself
   
32 32 Jordan Batiste Lutcher CB 5-8/170
Batiste is the top cover corner in the state and only lacks height
   
33 34 Torrey Bell John Curtis DE 6-4/225
Bell can be a good rusher off the edge but can he add the weight to play in the SEC
   
37 NR Alex Johnson Carencro RB 5-10/185
Johnson led the state in rushing as a senior and is headed to a juco
   
35 44 Ryan Brown Archbishop Shaw DE 6-4/240
Brown will take his pass-rushing skills to Starkville
   
36 40 Kentrell Brice Ruston CB 6-1/185
Brice formed quite a tandem for Ruston along with Cyril Noland
   
37 31 Alex Paul Newman OT 6-4/305
Paul gives a solid tackle prospect with good feet
   
38 38 Tyree Bracken White Castle RB 5-10/215
Bracken enjoyed a stellar career at White Castle
   
39 42 Quadry Antoine Belle Chasse S 5-9/215
Antoine is one of the biggest hitters in this class 
   
40 NR Brandon Wilson Calvary Baptist RB 5-11/185
Wilson stayed healthy all year and proved to be one of the top backs in North La.
   
41 NR Jarrell Bennett Edna Karr WR 5-9/165
Bennett is a big playmaker and could put up huge numbers in the right scheme
   
42 41 Trevon Stewart Patterson CB 5-11/185
Houston landed a good all-around athlete in Stewart
   
43 39 Sydie London St. Augustine WR 6-3/205
If basketball didn't take up so much focus with London he could be really special
   
44 47 Raymond Jackson O.P. Walker WR 6-3/215
Speed is a question with Jackson but if he grows into a TE then that won't be an issue
   
45 36 Royce LaFrance Helen Cox LB 6-3/220
LaFrance is big and versatile in the middle
   
46 NR Melvin Davis Edna Karr S 6-0/195
Karr has plenty of FBS-caliber players on defense and Davis is a good one
   
47 37 Jalen Richard Peabody RB 5-9/185
Richard is on pace to recover from a torn ACL and someone will get a dynamite back
   
48 49 Jaydrick Declouet Patterson WR 5-9/170
Declouet may put up huge numbers for the Houston Cougars
   
49 50 Cyril Noland Ruston S 5-11/185
Noland is one of those players that coaches love to have
   
50 NR Jalen Nixon Carencro ATH 6-2/225
