Pre-Spring Evaluation: SC Top 25

In what may be the most talented crop in recent memory, the 2010 South Carolina top 25 has elite-level talent, outstanding depth, and a nice balance of recruits by position.

Today, takes a closer look at the top 25 prospects in South Carolina for the class of 2010, finishing up with the second of a two-part series which began yesterday.

Listed below are the top 10 prospects in South Carolina:

#10 – Bashaud Breeland (Allendale Fairfax)

Great athlete that could play a number of positions, but projects best at safety. Lanky build with room to add weight yet has good speed and really likes to hit.

Stock Forecast – Potential Riser

#9 – Eric Mack (Calhoun County)
Offensive tackle

Huge lineman that is dominant at times. Has a great offer sheet and a lot of upside. Lacks technique and isn't as athletic as a top flight lineman should be.

Stock Forecast – Potential Riser

#8 – A.J. Cann (Bamberg-Ehrhardt)

Could play on either side of the ball, but may be one of the best center prospects in the southeast. Smaller frame and size limitations are concerns.

Stock Forecast – Holding Steady

#7 – Corey Miller (Byrnes)
Defensive end

Great combination of size and speed. Could play either strongside or weakside end in college and has nice versatility. May have the best upside of any of the Byrnes big three.

Stock Forecast – Potential Riser

#6 – Mustafa Greene (Irmo)
Running back

Most underrated player in South Carolina. Very complete back, runs with speed and power. Shows good vision and balance in the open field and projects favorably at the college level.

Stock Forecast – Potential Big Riser

#5 – DeAndre Hopkins (Daniel)
Wide receiver

Best pure athlete in the state could play on either side of the ball and dominate. Higher ceiling at safety as he has an uncanny knack to anticipate and break on balls.

Stock Forecast – Holding Steady

#4 – Kelcy Quarles (Greenwood)
Defensive tackle

Best pure defensive tackle in the state. Unbelievable burst and motor for a prospect with his size, can be absolutely dominant. Concerns that he isn't as big as advertised.

Stock Forecast – Holding Steady

#3 – Martavis Bryant (T.L. Hanna)
Wide receiver
Great blend of size and speed. Has a frame that should allow him to become more physical. Tailor made deep threat with tremendous hands. Needs some polishing in route running.

Stock Forecast – Holding Steady

#2 – Brandon Willis (Byrnes)
Defensive tackle

Very raw prospect who has a nice size and great strength. Will likely grow into a tackle, but could be very good as a strongside end. Concerns that his ceiling/upside isn't as great as others.

Stock Forecast – Potential Faller

#1 – Marcus Lattimore (Byrnes)
Running back

Most complete back the state has produced in years. Great out of the backfield, nice vision; tough, workman-like. Concerns about his burst and speed may separate him from the elite.
