Top 100 Recruits, 21 - 30

We look at recruits #21 to #30 as we continue the BorderWars.com countdown of the top 100 football recruits.

#30 Fernando Velasco
Offensive Line
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 325 40: 5.3
Jefferson County HS (Louisville)

Fernando Velasco is a big, powerful interior line prospect that has the size to contribute right away at guard. He is not a track and field type guy that is going to run a 5.0 forty, but the biggest testimonial that could be given to Velasco came from a coach that had his Top 100 lineman at Georgia's summer camp. He said, "My guy was probably the second best lineman there behind that Velasco kid. Velasco committed top Georgia shortly after that camp.

#29 Tim Cesa
Linebacker
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 230 40: 4.65
Harrison HS (Kennesaw)

Tim Cesa is a great overall athlete that played outside linebacker last year. He teams with Jon Abbate to form one of the best linebacking combos in the nation. Harrison's defense is geared towards the middle linebackers, and Cesa is poised for a huge year moving in to pair with Abbate. Cesa has good height and speed, and he is solidly built at 230 pounds. He chose Maryland 2 weeks ago over a host of other offers.

#28 Danny Verdun
Linebacker
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 230 40: 4.7
Thomson HS (Thomson)

Danny Verdun is one of the fastest rising prospects on this list. His first offer came late this summer, but since Georgia made the first offer, Auburn and Colorado have hopped on the bandwagon. He has good size to play inside or outside, and he has excellent footwork that come from playing football. His soccer position is aptly named "Stopper".

#27 Sean Dawkins
Running Back
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 220 40: 4.53
Parkview HS (Lilburn)

Every year there is at least one player that is not getting the play from colleges that he deserves. Sean Dawkins is that player to this point this year. Sure he plays behind the number 1 offensive line in the nation, but that doesn't change the fact that he is a 220 pound sledgehammer at tailback. He ran a 4.53 at Georgia's camp this summer, has excellent hands out of the backfield, and covers the field sideline to sideline at linebacker. He doesn't have any offers yet, but it's only a matter of time.

#26 Josh Thompson
Defensive Tackle
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 289 40: 4.97
Statesboro HS (Statesboro)

Josh Thompson played a big part in propelling Statesboro to the state title as a junior, and he's back bigger and stronger than ever this year. He shattered the Nike Camp record for reps of 185 in the bench with 56 reps. His record didn't last long that day as a sophomore from Tennessee did 62, but Thompson's mark was 8 better than anyone else had ever done. He has exceptional quickness for a player of his size, and he has the ability to make an early impact at the next level. Thompson was Auburn's first public verbal.

#25 Ken Shackleford
Defensive Tackle
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 305 40: 5.01
Villa Rica HS (Villa Rica)

Ken Shackleford could end up being one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the state this year. At 6-5 and 305 pounds, he has the ability to play on either side of the ball early on the next level, but his first love is defense. 

#24 David Overmyer
Offensive Line
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 270 40: 5.2
Parkview HS (Lilburn)

David Overmyer is one of the big men that help pave the way for Parkview's powerful running game and efficient passing game. He has long arms and an excellent frame to add even more weight to his 270 pounds. Overmyer has a collection of top scholarship offers in the south and around the nation. It could come down to a Clemson / Georgia battle. 

#23 Brandon Allen
Wide Receiver
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 190 40: 4.5
Westlake HS (Atlanta)

Brandon Allen has the size and speed that coaches covet in today's modern aerial attacks. At 6-5 he can jump over smaller defensive backs, and he has the speed to run by them. He will be the focal point of Westlake's offense this season, and he will put up huge numbers if he remains healthy. He has gotten offers from a host of schools including Michigan, LSU, and Virginia.

#22 Adrian Griffin
Cornerback
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 160 40: 4.5
Lagrange HS (Lagrange)

Adrian Griffin is a talented player on a talented LaGrange team. Blake Mitchell and Skyler Thornton get the bulk of the publicity, but cousins Adrian Griffin and Emmanual Harrell may be the 2 best players on the team. Griffin is a bit undersized, but he plays with a tenacity that will quickly make him a fan favorite on the next level. He has a load of offers from teams such as Georgia, Maryland, and South Carolina. He is wide open at the moment.

#21 Scott Lenahan
Offensive / Defensive Line
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 296 40: 4.9
Harrison HS (Kennesaw)

Scott Lenahan is an absolute monster on both sides of the ball for the Harrison Hoyas. He is big, strong, and quick. His 46 reps of 185 were 2 off of the previous Nike Camp record, and his 4.42 shuttle time was better than most wide receivers and corners. This will be the first season of playing defensive tackle full time, and he will be a handful for any lineman to deal with. He committed early to North Carolina.
