Two Add Fifth Star
If you are familiar with Scout, then you know our Top 50 are the five-star prospects for us each year. In 2012, 19 of the 50 are out of the South. John Theus (Georgia commitment), Landon Collins (Alabama commitment), and Keith Marshall (Georgia commitment) are the top three, and they have had five stars beside their names since the beginning.
Clemons is a 6-foot-4, 205 pound linebacker that is long, lean, and fast to the football. He had a strong week in San Antonio, he played all over the field as a senior, and he will settle in somewhere on the next level as a big safety or outside linebacker. Florida, Florida State, and Georgia are the main three on his list of schools.
Casher sat out the 2011 season after transferring to Davidson from Faith Academy in the offseason. The 6-foot-4, 240 pound defensive end still has some academic concerns too, but the odds of him making to FSU for the 2012 season are greater than they were this time a year ago. Casher stood out daily on the practice fields in Orlando and he made plays in the Under Armour All-America game as well.
The two that fell out of the Top 50 for these two to move in were Kwon Alexander and Nelson Agholor. Alexander went out early in the fall with an ACL injury and Agholor had an outstanding year on the field at Berkeley Prep, but missed all the Under Armour practices and the game with a shoulder injury. Neither prospect has committed yet.
Four Break Into Top 100
Mike Davis was just on the outside looking in when rankings were updated in December, but after seeing him live for a few days in San Antonio, the four-star running back moved into the top 100. The 5-foot-10, 200 pound back out of Stone Mountain (GA) Stephenson now sits a number 71. Davis is a former Florida commitment and he is now considering Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
The other three prospects are now considered top 100 prospects and they are wide receiver Amari Cooper (Alabama commitment) at no. 86, defensive tackle Tyler Nero (Auburn commitment) at no. 98, and wide receiver Jaquay Williams (Auburn commitment) at no. 100.
