George Campbell | WR | 6-3.5/185 | Tarpon Springs (FL) East Lake

Highlights: Watch Video
Quick Hitter: Campbell is such a natural athlete and he can do so many things well on a football field. As a wide receiver, he has great size, he is a long-strider, so he covers a lot of ground quickly, and he really knows how to go up and get the football. He is very lean and will need to refine his route-running skills, but there is so much to like here. He will be an outstanding outside receiver on the next level.
Recruiting: Committed to Michigan over 20-plus other schools.

Terry Godwin | CB | 6-0/158 | Hoganville (GA) Callaway

Quick Hitter: Godwin is an elite athlete who is looking to play both ways on the next level. He could do that, but when looking at his upside, corner is his position. He has very quick feet, he plays the game with great speed, and he is a natural athlete. He knows more about the wide receiver position, but he has a little more potential at corner.
Recruiting: Grew up a Georgia fan, but is open to everyone at this time. Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Ole Miss, and others are in the mix.

Mitch Hyatt | OT | 6-6/272 | Suwanee (GA) North Gwinnett

Highlights: Watch Video
Quick Hitter: You do not see many offensive tackles as skilled as Hyatt. He is long and lean with great feet and solid in the run game and in pass protection.
Recruiting: Has ties to Clemson and the Tigers are looked at as the team to beat.

Martez Ivey | OT | 6-6/280 | Apopka (FL)

Highlights: Watch Video
Quick Hitter: Ivey was one of the most impressive offensive tackles I saw all spring/summer. He has wide shoulders and a great foundation to build on with those long arms and good feet. He bends well and he displays very good balance. He will continue to fill out and add strength.
Recruiting: Looks to be pretty open, but Florida and Ohio State are two schools we know he has interest in.

CeCe Jefferson | DE | 6-3/255 | Glen Saint Mary (FL) Baker County

Highlights: Watch Video
Quick Hitter: Jefferson is an athletic guy on the edge who really liked to get after the quarterback. He has good quickness off the ball, his hands are active, and he is great in pursuit. Will continue to get bigger and better.
Recruiting: Alabama currently leads and Florida is a very close second.

Daron Payne | DT | 6-3/315 | Irondale (AL) Shades Valley

Highlights: Watch Video
Quick Hitter: Payne is the man in the middle you look to build your defense around. He can really anchor the defensive line and cause teams to double-team him. He is very strong at the point of attack and he can move well side-to-side. He is more of a bull rush guy right now and can help collapse the pocket up the middle. .
Recruiting: Closing in on double-digit offers and Alabama currently has a strong lead over Auburn.

Kevin Toliver | CB | 6-2/180 | Jacksonville (FL) Trinity Christian

Quick Hitter: Toliver is a big corner with long arms and you don't see many like him. He is very fluid, he has loose hips, and he is strong in coverage on and off the ball. He is what top schools look for in an elite corner. He is only going to get better too.
Recruiting: Committed to LSU, but will likely visit other schools.

Trenton Thompson | DT | 6-3/287 | Albany (GA) Westover

Highlights: Watch Video
Quick Hitter: You draw interior defensive linemen up to look like Thompson. He has a great frame with great lower-body strength, longer arms, very strong hands, and a great burst off the ball. He is still raw, so his ceiling is very high. He can be very disruptive and he is only going to get better.
Recruiting: Georgia is the leader for Thompson will Auburn, Florida and others behind the Bulldogs.
