CB | 6-0 / 165
Deshler (AL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 23
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 6/20/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Clemson, South Alabama, Southern Miss
Scouting Report: Belue is an electric playmaker with the ball in his hands. He can make defenders miss when returning kicks and is an aggresive player on the defensive side of the ball as well. He has excellent ball skills and is truly a gifted athlete.--Andrew Bone Scout.com
Ronald Carswell
WR | 6-0 / 171
Westside (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 254
Pos Rank: 38
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 4/7/09
Committed Over: Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Mississippi
Scouting Report: Carswell is very quick off the line and it is tough for corners to get their hands on him. He brings the ball into his body well and catches the ball away from him. While he is not a burner, he is elusive when he gets the ball. He needs to work on blocking down field and his overall strength to become a more complete receiver. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
Cade Foster

C F Vigor (AL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: PG
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 2/14/09
Scouting Report: Fowler is a jumbo athlete who could play several positions. He is tough to tackle and has a lot of speed and quickness for his size. He reminds many of former Alabama fullback and now Pro Bowler Le'Ron McClain. He is a force with the ball in his hands, makes acrobatic catches and makes people miss in the open field.--Andrew Bone Scout.com
CB | 6-0 / 175
Manning (SC)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 6
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 1/2/10
Committed Over: Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, South Carolina, Virginia Tech
Scouting Report: Fulton is an elite corner that has good length, very good speed, and a lot of potential. He is defintiely a stronger corner when plaing press coverage so he needs to work on playing off receivers and understanding the coverages. He is a physca guy that tackles well, he is quick out of his breaks, and his length makes it hard to get a pass over him. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons
RB | 5-9 / 190
Opelika (AL)
Rating:
Scout300: 266
Pos Rank: 23
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 7/23/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Grant is aeeps his feet underneath him without overstriding, setting himself up for extremely quick cuts and change of direction. By not overextending, Grant can not only cut quick, but keeps his legs driving on contact. Runs with good power between the tackles despite not being a big back. Returns kicks, takes direct snaps and can catch out of the backfield. A terrific change of direction athlete - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com
DE | 6-4 / 245
West Brunswick (NC)
Rating:
Scout300: 185
Pos Rank: 26
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 9/9/09
Committed Over: Duke, East Carolina, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia Tech
Scouting Report: You have to love Hill’s athleticism. He really closes on the ball well, he is great in pursuit, and he plays with a lot of speed when going north-south. Coming off the edge out of a two-point stance is something he does extremely well. He is strong when not engaging with an offensive lineman and he is athletic enough to drop back into coverage. He needs to get stronger, he needs to work on his hands, and he needs to work on shedding blocks.
Arie Kouandjio
OT | 6-6 / 320
Dematha Catholic (MD)
Rating:
Scout300: 282
Pos Rank: 29
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 2/2/10
Committed Over: California, Maryland, Miami, New Mexico, Notre Dame, Tennessee, USC
Scouting Report: Kouanjio has exceptional feet and is very agile for a big guy. He moves well in space and is very quick getting to the second level in a hurry. Kouandjio is a technician and he is very versatile. He is capable of playing every position along the offensive from. Sometimes struggles with bigger guys at the point of attack.--Bob Lichtenfels/Scout.com
Adrian Hubbard
DE | 6-7 / 227
Norcross (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 157
Pos Rank: 20
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 12/8/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Hubbard is an athlete that is still growing into his long and rangy frame. He has to really work on his technique and add more moves off the ball to be successful on the next level, but he has a lot of natural talent. He is long, he is quick, he chase the ball down well, and he has a lot of room to grow physically. It may take a little time to all come together, but when it does he could be a force. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
DT | 6-3 / 330
East (TN)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 185
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 1/28/10
Committed Over: Memphis
TE | 6-4 / 225
Evangelical Christian (TN)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 24
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 8/25/09
Committed Over: Florida State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Stanford, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Jones is a competitor and he may be a tad undersized physically as a true tight end, but he is a threat in the passing game. He has the size and speed to line up off the ball and create mismatches with linebackers or defensive backs. He has great concentration when catching the ball. Blocking is not what he does best right now, so he will need to work on that and gaining weight on the next level. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
DT | 6-3 / 280
East Mississippi (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 2/5/09
Scouting Report: A solid interior lineman that controls his man at the line of scrimmage, Lewis excels at occupying blockers and freeing up defensive ends and linebackers. He uses his hands well and plays with good pad level and leverage. He has an excellent motor and can frequently be found tracking down running plays from behind. Will need to work on his technique to become a pass rushing force, but is already solid against the run - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.
OG | 6-3 / 310
The Woodlands (TX)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 13
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 4/6/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Tennessee
DT | 6-4 / 270
Mt. Brook (AL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 60
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 4/18/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Stanford, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Love is the younger brother of Alabama offensve tackle Tyler Love. Wilson is a jumbo athlete who has excelled on the defensive line, but could end up on offense on the next level. He is very strong and quick off the line. He has good footwork and is a smart player overall.--Andrew Bone Scout.com
WR | 5-11 / 165
Mitchell Road (TN)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 48
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 2/6/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Miami (Fl), Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee
Scouting Report: With Malone's speed, he is a candidate to play any of the wide receiver positions, but his change of direction and size make him an ideal candidate as a slot receiver / return man. Malone has excellent hands and elevates well in tight spaces. Lethal in the open field, Malone is the type to make a guy miss in space - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.
CB | 6-0 / 180
Copiah-Lincoln (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 1/31/10
Committed Over: Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Mississippi, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, Tennessee
Demarcus Milliner
CB | 6-1 / 185
Stanhope Elmore (AL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 1
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 6/4/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Stanford, Tennessee
Scouting Report: A two way athlete that has the skills to play on either side of the ball in college. As a receiver, Milliner does a good job of running after the catch and making guys miss. As a defensive back, Milliner is aggressive at the point of attack, reads and anticipates well, and he has an excellent frame to add more size and muscle. A versatile athlete that lacks blazing speed, Milliner could star on either side of the ball - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.
C.J. Mosley
OLB | 6-3 / 220
Theodore (AL)
Rating:
Scout300: 183
Pos Rank: 15
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 1/9/10
Committed Over: Auburn, Clemson, LSU, Oklahoma, Stanford, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Mosley is one of the best football players in the South. He excels running sideline-to-sideline and is good in pass coverage. He looks to become the future for Alabama in the middle of the defense.--Andrew Bone Scout.com
S | 6-2 / 190
Prattville (AL)
Rating:
Scout300: 187
Pos Rank: 17
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 4/1/09
Committed Over: Auburn, LSU, Southern Miss, Stanford, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Perry helped lead his team to four consecutive state championship appearances with only one loss. He is a very physical safety with good ball skills. He is a smart player who rarely lets anyone get behind him. He is outstanding at coming up against the run.--Andrew Bone Scout.com
Austin Shepherd
OG | 6-4 / 310
North Gwinnett (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 25
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 3/9/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Stanford, UAB
Scouting Report: Shepherd is an offensive lineman with that nasty attitude you look for. He plays with a lot of intensity, he loves to put guys on their backs, and he likes to drive his guy off the ball. He can still work on his quickness off the ball and bringing his pass protection to the level of his run blocking. Overall he is a nasty OL with the size and strength to fit right in at Alabama. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
Blake Sims
WR | 6-0 / 191
Gainesville (GA)
Rating:
Scout300: 273
Pos Rank: 42
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 1/16/10
Committed Over: Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Tennessee, Troy, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Sims is a versatile athlete that could play quarterback, wide receiver, or safety on the next level. He does not have the ideal size for QB, but he has a strong arm, great mobility, and he makes good decisions. With the ball in his hands, he is dangerous, but he also has the ability to play defense. When talking about Sims, you are talking about one of the top athletes in Georgia and the South. - Chad Simmons - South Region Analyst
Phillip Sims
QB | 6-2 / 215
Oscar F. Smith (VA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 2
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 4/15/09
Committed Over: Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, West Virginia
Scouting Report: A strong-armed, super productive pocket passer who should finish his storied prep career as the all-time leading passer in Virginia state history. Sims has been a standout since his freshman year at Oscar Smith, when he threw for 1,700 yards and 16 TDs and enters his senior season this fall with 7,597 career passing yards. Bob Lichtenfels/Scout.com
Brian Vogler
TE | 6-7.5 / 246
Brookstone (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 13
Committed to: ALABAMA
Commit Date: 7/22/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Miami (Fl), Oklahoma, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Enormous TE with even more upside, Vogler is the next great TE from the state (GA). Has very good and very soft hands. Concentrates well and can take a hit. Is a solid blocker, both at the LOS and down-field. Must gain weight to battle for a full season. Long-strider who covers ground quickly, he will develop better body control as he gains strength and physical maturity, thus adding change of direction to his skill set--Burke Hayes ">
