The Gila Monsters return their second-leading rusher from last season, Devin Mohn, who racked up nearly 500 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.
At 5'11" and weighing in at over 220 pounds, Mohn is a bruiser who pounds defenses into submission.
Leading the way up front are two solid offensive line prospects -- Andre Harris and Javius Townsend -- both of whom should see a lot of attention from four-year schools.
Townsend is a bounceback from Oklahoma State while Harris signed with Auburn out of high school.
Harris has outstanding size and quick feet while Townsend is a powerful prospect who could play almost anywhere along the line.
On defense, Tysheem Smith is a player to keep an eye on along the defensive line.
Smith has ideal size and can play either the nose tackle spot or as a three-technique (pass-rushing) defensive tackle.
The linebacking corps sports two solid linebackers that are already getting looks from four-year schools.
Larry Butler III is a solid middle linebacker prospect with offers in the bank already from the likes of Alcorn State, Arkansas State, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Purdue and Tennessee and he's got quite a few other schools interested in what he can add to their programs as well.
On the outside, Anthony Hamm looks to have all it takes to be special. He can fly to the ball and he's got great instincts.
EAC sported the top JUCO corner prospect in the country last season (Travell Dixon) and while they don't have someone of that caliber back this year, they still have two nice prospects in S Okoye Bozeman and CB Josh Edet.
Edet can be a shutdown corner for the Gila Monsters this fall and posted solid numbers -- 29 tackles, one interception and 10 passes defensed -- as a freshman in 2011.
Bozeman was an enforcer as a freshman last fall, racking up 59 tackles and one interception. With a good start to the season, he should see a lot of attention from four-year schools.
