South Region: Commitment Rewind

Nine of the top prospects out of the South made their decisions over the past week and you can find out who they committed to and what they take to those schools here.

Tuesday July 5

Jordan Watson - 6-4/290 – Offensive Guard – Fayetteville, Ga.-Whitewater
Committed to: Kentucky
Quick Hitter: Watson is a strong blocker on the offensive line and he could help Kentucky out at tackle or guard. He is strong at the point of attack, he has a strong lower-body, and he is an OL that goes until the whistle blows.

Wednesday July 6

Maurice Bennett - 6-2/280 – Defensive Tackle – Madison, Ms.-Madison Central
Committed to: Washington State
Quick Hitter: Bennett is a player who plays with a lot of effort and intensity. He is quick off the ball, he plays with pretty good leverage, and he is someone who has the tools to be a very big contributor down the road.

Kwinton Smith - 6-4/200 – Wide Receiver – Dillon, S.C.-Dillon
Committed to: South Carolina
Quick Hitter: Smith is a long and rangy wideout that is very fluid. He not only excels at going to get the jump balls, but he can also stretch the field vertically. He is quicker than many expect when they first put eyes on him.

Friday July 8

Jabril Solomon - 6-2/280 – Wide Receiver – Hemingway, S.C.-Hemingway
Committed to: East Carolina
Quick Hitter: Solomon is a good athlete that has good straight-line speed. He is a lengthy athlete that will likely play wide receiver on the next level, but he has the size and ability to play free safety as well.

Javarius Leamon - 6-6/280 – Offensive Tackle – Woodruff, S.C.-Woodruff
Committed to: Clemson
Quick Hitter: Leamon is an offensive lineman who is still developing physically. He played 2010 season at around 255 pounds and he is now pushing 280 pounds. He has room to carry over 300 pounds and he has good mobility. He has the long arms you look for and a lot of upside at tackle.

Jody Fuller - 6-0/200 – Wide Receiver – Monroe, N.C.-Sun Valley
Committed to: South Carolina
Quick Hitter: Fuller is a wide receiver that is built like a strong running back. He is a wideout that can break tackles to get yards after the catch. He will be a guy South Carolina can move around on the next level. He can me that guy that goes across the middle or someone that can catch the slip screens.

Saturday July 9

Shaq Roland - 6-1/180 – Wide Receiver – Lexington, S.C.-Lexington
Committed to: South Carolina
Quick Hitter: Roland is one of the top athletes in the country and he can do a lot of things well. He does not have a lot of true weaknesses. He can still get stronger and he could play with a little more intensity, but he can do everything you want a top flight wide receiver to do. He could also be a good safety on the next level.

Sunday July 10

James Burgess - 6-0/205 – Linebacker – Homestead, Fla.-Homestead
Committed to: Miami
Quick Hitter: Burgess is an athletic linebacker with good instincts. He likes to play inside linebacker because it allows him to chase the football, but he will likely settle in on the outside at UM. He moves well, he has good quickness to the ball, and he plays the game with intelligence.

Herbert Waters - 6-0/170 – Wide Receiver – Homestead, Fla.-Homestead
Committed to: Miami
Quick Hitter: Waters has very strong hands at wide receiver and he gets good separation. He is not the fastest wideout, but he has good quickness, and he gets in and out of his breaks well. He is 6-feet tall, but has long arms, so he plays bigger. He is strong at receiver, but he could get a look at corner on the next level as well.

These are all three-star prospects and above out of the South Region that have committed since Sunday July 3.
