UA Game: Top 5 Overall

Three practices are in the books and everyone can look forward to what should be a real competitive game on Friday evening. Here are FoxSportsNext's top five overall performers from the week of practices.

1. DE Robert Nkemdiche, Grayson (GA)

Notes: What more can be said than he is literally a prototype and should be a big time performer down the road, likely at Ole Miss.

2. DT Greg Gilmore, South View (NC), committed to LSU

Notes: Gilmore is nationally ranked so it should not be much of a surprise that he is here, but he really had a strong week of practices and still has so much physical potential left (room to fill out).

3. DE Carl Lawson, Milton (GA), committed to Auburn

Notes: Lawson is here because he is explosive, explosive, explosive. He should be an elite pass rusher at the next level. He is a soft verbal to Auburn at this time.

4. WR Robbie Rhodes, Southwest (TX), committed to Baylor

Notes: Good size (6'0+), great burst, and terrific hands highlight this young man's game. He should be a near perfect fit in Baylor's wide open, fast-paced offense.

5. LB Ben Boulware, T.L. Hanna (SC), committed to Clemson

Notes: Boulware had a tremendous week of practice as he finds the football, is very tough, and has a body made for contact. Boulware projects to MLB and will essentially stay home for college at Clemson.
