Campbell Heads New England States
Posted Aug 19, 2005
The Scout.com class of 2006 state rankings are here, and today's list includes appearances from New England, Montana, Alaska, and Nevada.
New England 35
The New England states are loaded this year. Potentially this could be one of the best classes the region has ever had. Hyde Leadership (Conn.) defensive end
takes the regions top player honors.
“Campbell has a great frame and tremendous athletic ability for a player his size," says Northeast recruiting analyst Bob Lichtenfels. "Campbell’s teammate Jamie Nixon has the skills to be one of the top cover corners in the country. Billerica (Mass.) linebacker
is going to be a special player in college. He does everything at Billerica, except maybe drive the team bus. I think once McCluskey focuses on one position in college the sky is the limit for him."
Another prospect with unlimited ability is Middletown (Del.) defensive end
"He may be the only player in the region who can compare to Campbell in terms of physical measureables," adds Lichtenfels.
Normally what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. However with nine of the top ten players in Nevada from the city, word is getting out about the talent, especially with a player like five-star running back
in the field.
"I love DeMarco Murray and his game quite a bit," Southwest/Midlands recruiting analyst Stacey Dean said. "He can get the job done via ground, or air, might as well call him: Fed Ex, destination end zone. Currently sitting No. 7 in the Southwest Hot 100, behind only Michael Goodson as the top back in the Southwest, Murray attracted offers from all over the country. Look for USC, though, to walk away with the Reggie Bush-clone when it's all said and done."
Alaska is the biggest state in the nation, and it is only fitting that the name
takes the number one spot.
"The Last Frontier usually will have a D1 player or two every couple of years, but this year just might be the exception," says West recruiting analyst Chris Fetters. "Kenai's Papapa Nicholas-Silvira and Palmer LB
both have Pac-10 potential. Anchorage West has some intriguing line prospects in Taufi and Salunga, while
- who plays quarterback for Anchorage East - could be a big receiver target in college."
Fetters adds that Montana is a place with quite a bit of potential, especially in the number one player
"Drew Savage showed the Scout.com staff this spring that he's one of the top pure athletes in the country, running a legit 4.51 40 at the New Orleans combine.
both lead powerhouse programs, while
are D1 prospects from much smaller schools."
