Pos Rank: 117
Committed to: LOUSIVILLE
Commit Date: 1/19/10
Committed Over: Florida Atlantic
Scouting Report: Acosta has been a very good lineman in a tough area and has the ability to play all five line positions. He's a smart, tough kid who's been very productive. He'll need to bulk up, become a little more flexible, and find ways to come off the ball a little better. -- Mike Bakas

Scouting Report: Bivin exhibits good footwork and keeps a wide base while using his hands well in pass protection. He bends his knees and drives his opponents off the ball, controlling him with his powerful upper body. Bivin does a good job of sustaining blocks and then finishing them and shows a nasty streak, playing to the whistle and sometimes a bit past it. One concern with Bivin is simply the level of competition he's playing against. – Matt Alkire

Commit Date: 1/29/10
Committed Over: Illinois, Minnesota
Scouting Report: Brooks emerged as one of the top defensive tackle prospects in Dade County as a senior. He's a big kid at 6-3+ and over 300 pounds. He's a strong kid who's tough to move off the ball. He moves around really well for a kid his size and you'll see him chasing guys down. He does need to improve his technique, as he's still raw, and he just needs to keep his motor running all the time. -- Mike Bakas

Commit Date: 2/1/10
Committed Over: Boise State, Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, Ohio State
Scouting Report: Fantastic athlete who could play a variety of positions. As a quarterback, he has run an option system where his speed, balance and overall ability with the ball in his hands were on display. He has a nice arm and puts good touch on his passes, but unless he plays in a similar offensive system in college, he will need to work on his footwork and drops as well as continue to improve at reading coverage. - Allen Trieu

Scouting Report: Butler plays all over the field on the high school level, but he will end up as a big linebacker or defensive end in college. Lining up on the edge is where he may be the best - he is quick off the ball, he really changes direction well, and he has a lot of room to grow physically. He will need to work on his technique, especially his use of hands, but that will come in time. - Chad Simmons - South Region Analyst

Scouting Report: Coleman is a pass rush guy for and foremost. That is where he is most effective because of his pursuit and moves off the ball. To become a more complete end that can play the run as well, he needs to add strength, play with better leverage, and use his hands more. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons

Committed Over: Rutgers, Syracuse
Scouting Report: Dominguez is as tough as they come and he can do a little bit of everything. if you asked him to play guard he would do it. Dominguez may be best suited as a possession type of receiver, but he could also become a very good defensive back. He is also an exceptional special teams player. he runs good routes and shows solid ball skills.--Bob Lichtenfels/Scout.com

Scouting Report: Harris is not going to wow anyone with one part of his game, but he is just a solid receiver all the way around. He runs very good routes, he always gets open, and he catches the ball with his hands. His top end speed needs to improve, but he gets off the line well and gives the quarterbacks a reliable receiver to throw to. Harris will be a dependable and go-to guy on the next level. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons

Scouting Report: Hogan is the best pure big back in the East. Hogan is a tremendous North and South runner with deceptive speed. He has the ability to run through you or around you. He has the build to be able to take the punishment of 20+ carries a game.Bob Lichtenfels - Scout.com

Scouting Report: Lamb is one of the fastest kids in this year's class. He has big time speed and is a threat to score every time he touches it. He's a kid you just try getting the ball to. He has limited experience, however, since he only started one year (as a RB) in high school. He lacks ideal size at 5-9. -- Mike Bakas

Trotwood-Madison (OH)

Commit Date: 6/14/09
Committed Over: Akron, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Ohio State, Pittsburgh
Scouting Report: A track athlete with great speed. Also a standout on offense, where he showed open field ability and special teams, where he could make a mark in college. In run support, he finds the ball well and is able to hit gaps and creases and make tackles. He is still on the thin side for the safety position and will need to add some weight and strength. - Allen Trieu

Committed Over: Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan State, Notre Dame
Scouting Report: Has great explosiveness and big play ability. Top end speed and acceleration are top notch and is dangerous in the open field. Lacks great size and could have trouble with press coverage at the next level, but looks like he could step in right away as a slot receiver or return man.
OLB | 6-2 / 190
Treasure Coast (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 53
Committed to: LOUSIVILLE
Commit Date: 7/25/09
Committed Over: Cincinnati, Georgia, Mississippi State, Ohio State
Scouting Report: Rogers is best at attacking the football north-south. He spent the first two years playing defensive end before moving to linebacker as a junior. He has great length, speed, and athleticism, but is still raw as a backer. He has good feet and nice range, but needs to work on strength, shedding blocks, and dropping back into coverage. He is a raw athlete now, but he has potential. - Chad Simmons

Committed Over: Ball State, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Purdue
Scouting Report: Big play back with good top end speed and a very nice burst. Gets himself going quickly with good acceleration and can get the corner. More straight line than elusive, but does show some wiggle. Has good balance and is stronger and runs tougher than you may expect from a kid his size, but he still needs to add weight and strength. - Allen Trieu

Scouting Report: Wilson has played offensive tackle throughout his high school days and has done a great job holding up against the area's top pass rushers over the years. He'll likely move inside in college and has the size, strength, and drive-blocking ability to be a good one. He's still raw from a technique standpoint and will need to come off the ball better. -- Mike Bakas
