Scouting Report: Kenneth Carter (6-4, 270), Scout.com four-star defensive tackle from Greensville High School, had a very strong senior season. He chose Auburn over scholarship offers from Clemson, Kentucky, LSU and Ole Miss. Carter is a very strong defender and is quick off the ball. He plays aggressive and uses his hands extremely well.--Andrew Bone Scout.com

Scouting Report: Christian is a hard-nosed offensive lineman that plays with intensity until the whistle blows. He is a run block specialist coming out of high school because of the offense he plays in, but he has the athelticism to do well in pass protection down the road. He has great knee bend and he comes out of his stance well. Christian really drives his man off the ball and holds in nicely. - South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons

Scouting Report: Curry is a physical football player with great instincts at linebacker. He plays the game the way it is supposed to be played with great toughness. His skills and knowledge of the game could land him at middle linebacker, outside linebacker, or fullback in college. While tackling and instincts are strengths, he needs to work on his change of direction and overall speed. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons

Commit Date: 12/12/09
Committed Over: Kentucky, South Carolina, Southern Miss
Scouting Report: A multi-faceted athlete, Chris Davis does a lot of things for his Woodlawn team, but no matter where he is, it doesn't take long for him to show off his athleticism. He has an outstanding change of direction, coupled with breakaway speed. He's compact and strong and can break tackles as a receiver or jam his man as a defensive back. His athleticism makes him a potential receiver, defensive back, and kick returner - Scott Kennedy, Scout.com

Scouting Report: Dyer is a top tier back and he brings a lot out of the backfield. He runs low to the ground so he is extremely hard to tackle. He gets a lot of yards after contact and he catches the ball well also. The questions are his blocking ability and he can work on his acceleration a little as well. His top end speed is good, but he can improve his explosiveness. Overall, he is an elite back ready to make plays.- South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmon

Scouting Report: Goodwin is one of the fastest prospects in the state of Georgia and that is what makes him a top recruit. He is a vertical threat, he is explosive, and he is someone that can make a big play downfield at any time. He needs to work on his route running and catching the ball more consistent. He has great length (6-2), he goes up for jump balls well, and his best ball is ahead of him. - Chad Simmons - South Region Analyst

Scouting Report: Kitchens is a very versatile athlete that could end up at linebacker, defensive end, or even wide receiver at Auburn. He has a lot of athelticism and could be effective any one of those positions. Naturrally you look at him and his aggressive nature and think defense, but he could be a big target at receiver as well. He is not a great speed guy, but he is tough, and a true football player. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons

Hialeah Senior (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 7
Committed to: AUBURN
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Illinois, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Size, speed and athletic ability are three traits that make Corey Lemonier one of the top defensive players in the country. A great first step allows him to get the edge on any given play and is a disruptive force once in the opposing backfield. Like any player entering his senior season of football he needs to work on his overall strength but as he grows and continues to get bigger he will be a force at the next level.

Commit Date: 1/20/10
Committed Over: Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, South Carolina
Scouting Report: First thing that jumps out about Mack is how nimble he is on his feet. He moves well, especially for someone weighing 320 plus pounds. He needs to work on attacking the defensive lineman more when run blocking, but he is more than solid in pass protection. He uses his hands well, he really locks in on the defender, and he gets down field well on screens. He has nice knee bend, but he needs to be more consistent on his pad level.

Commit Date: 7/18/09
Committed Over: South Carolina, ULM, West Virginia
Scouting Report: McNeal plays the game hard, sacrifices his body, loves contact, and will play anywhere coaches ask him to play. Needs to work on his coverage skills, reading the quarterback, and taking the proper angles, but he closes well on the ball, he is a big tackler, and he will fly around the field trying to make a play. He does not have the elite speed, but he is fast enough and playing offense helps him on defense. Should impact early on special teams.

Scouting Report: Mincy is a smart corner and one that likes to play press or soft coverage. He loves to be aggressive in man to man, but his strength could hurt him a little against the bigger receivers in college. He is a little thin and light, so he needs to get bigger and improve his strength. One of his biggest strengths are his hands. If in reach, he can make a play on it and turn the ball over. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons

Committed Over: Arizona, Kansas State, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee
Scouting Report: He has great size for a quarterback, a strong arm and can run. His leadership skills are evident on and off the field, he is the unquestioned leader of his team. In the game he had a field day throwing into the flats and picked apart the defense all day long. He did not have any opportunities to air it out but he was good on his other passes of the day. Very effecient passer, he had few mistakes in a Championship game.

Scouting Report: Owens played throughout his high school career with his hand on the ground. He is a very athletic defender with great speed. He is aggressive and has excelled rushing the quarterback. He'll do well chasing down players in the backfield and running sideline-to-sideline once he learns the new position on the next level.--Andrew Bone Scout.com

Scouting Report: Reed played QB at Thibodaux but will play WR and could even get a look at CB if the team needs him there. He is very elusive and has big-play potential when he has the ball in his hands. Getting his blocking and route running down will be something that Reed will need to work on but his speed and quickness should allow him to play early.

Scouting Report: One of the top jumbo athletes in the country, Sanders lines up at outside linebacker, down lineman, fullback, tailback, and quarterback among other places. With his size and frame, he'll likely end up putting his hand down at defensive end, and once he begins to focus on one position and adding size and strength, his athleticism, talent, and intensity will take over. The type of player that can change the course of a game - Scott Kennedy

Scouting Report: Ryan Smith was "Mr. Everything" in high school and certainly can play a number of positions at the next level. He is a very talented athlete who has good speed and coverage skills. He is a physical player and can lay the lumber on defense. He has a total grasp of the game.--Andrew Bone Scout.com

Scouting Report: Whitaker is a powerful defensive tackle. He is a lineman that does an excellent job of holding his blockers and freeing up his teammates. He is a space-eater and will likely demand double-teams on the next level. Making a lot of big plays is not his specialty, but he is going to make others around him better. He plays with a lot of power, but can improve his explosion off the ball and pass rushing skills. -South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons

Scouting Report: White is a great athlete who will be going to play corner based on that athleticism. He played quarterback all through high school so he's used to making plays with the ball in his hands. At 5-11, he can really tun too. He'll need to develop his cover skills and work on the fundamental things, like tackling, etc. -- Mike Bakas
