King Of The Spring Recap: Watch List

PA Swag and Team 412 co-hosted the King Of The Spring 7-on-7 this past weekend, held at Duquesne University. Here is a look at some of the prospects to keep an eye on.

J.J. Cosentino (Florida State commit) Pittsburgh (PA) Central Catholic, 6-5, 230 QB
Florida State fans should have a lot to be excited with in the 6-5, 230-pound Cosentino. For being as big as he is, Cosentino is very mobile. For not having much practice time with his 7-on-7 team, Cosentino didn't look one bit rusty.

He puts a whistle on the ball in both short-range and long-range situations. He's also able to put a soft touch on the ball in goal line situations. Cosentino said afterwards he's more and more excited with his commitment to Florida State, even though he says 30-40 schools have come by his high school, expressing interest.

Terry Swanson, RB 5-11, 195 Aliquippa (PA)
Swanson has bulked up a little in the offseason, gaining another 10 pounds of muscle. He rushed for over 200 yards in the WPIAL championship game in November, and since then has racked up six offers from Ohio, Temple, Toledo, Akron, Stony Brook and James Madison.

Even though teammate Dravon Henry, a four-star corner prospect, also runs the ball for Aliquippa and has racked up close to 30 offers, Swanson has still been able to gain interest as well. Swanson is a shifty player, and does a good job of making people miss. He proved this past weekend that he's able to run just as fast, if not smoother, with the added weight. He will camp at Michigan State, Penn State, West Virginia, Ohio State and possibly Pittsburgh.

Eddie Edwards, WR, 5-11 171 Hampton (PA)
Edwards is someone who might be flying under the radar for now. He played both receiver and corner this past weekend, has great hips and great change of direction.

He's listed as a receiver, but he was very strong at corner this past weekend--good ball skills from playing receiver, also strong in coverage.

Don't be surprised to see him as Hampton's quarterback this season, the focal point of their offense. He will camp at Pitt this summer, and has also had some interest from Ivy League schools.

Ricky Rogers, WR 6-2, 195 Monroeville (PA) Gateway (West Virginia commit)
Rogers has been on the radar for awhile, but looks like he's added some size from his 195-pound frame. He looks about 205 right now, and even stronger.

All you need to know about Rogers is that he was the favorite target of quarterback Cosentino. He loves to go up and get the ball.

Nate Stone LB 6-0, 230 Greensburg (PA) Central Catholic
The great thing about Stone is his size. He is comfortable right where he's at, and he shows it with his ability to move.

Strong in coverage, and reacts to the ball. He finished with 121 tackles as a junior, and should easily do the same this year as a senior.

Stone will camp at Pitt this summer, and recently added Ivy League offers from Cornell and Penn.

Eric Taylor QB 6-3, 207 Linsly School (WV)
This prospect is entering his sophomore year at Linsly, and is certainly one to keep an eye on.

He has good field vision--knows exactly where his receivers are going to be. He also looks like he's not done growing. Could easily be 6-5 or 6-6 by the time he enters college. His mechanics will only fine tune with age. He's also a pitcher in baseball, and has made a name for himself on the AAU circuit.

Pitt and Ohio State are just two of the schools he plans on camping at this summer. He says he likes Ohio State a lot at this point, for two simple words: "Urban Meyer."

P.J. Fulmore CB 5-9, 170 Pittsburgh (PA) North Catholic
Fulmore rushed for over 1,200 yards last season as a sophomore for North Catholic. He'll still be the feature back on offense, but he is turning his attention to defense because he feels that will give him the best shot at the next level.

Last season Fulmore was at safety, and he will now move to corner where he has been working out in 7-on-7. Because of the time he has spent on offense, he has good ball skills. He managed to get his hands on a lot of passes on Saturday. He plans on hitting at least a dozen or so camps this summer, including a big trip to Miami.

Therron Coleman ATH 5-11, 170 Pittsburgh (PA) Brashear
Coleman is another prospect to watch for the Class of 2016.Entering his sophomore season at Brashear, he has a chance to be Brashear's quarterback this season, though he will eventually be recruited as a receiver or corner.

Coleman has good speed, and has great cover skills. Found himself near the ball a lot while on defense.
