Top 25 Impact JUCO Signees (Pt. 1)

With fall camps approaching, here's a look at some of the top 2016 JUCO signees who could have an early impact with the teams they signed with...

Our Take: At 6'6", 220 pounds, Ross is a huge target who should be able to make plays in the redzone for the Wildcats.

Our Take: Sanders is one of the most impressive looking players you will see with his legit 6'5", 260-pound frame. He's great at getting up the field, but he's also good at stopping the run. He will be an every-down player for Arkansas State right away.

Our Take: Johnson was a dynamic playmaker for COD last season, putting them back on the competitive map in the So Cal JUCO ranks. He can make plays with his legs, but make no mistake, he's a pass-first guy with the ability to really hurt defenses with his pin-point passing. He might not start right away at Kentucky, but he'll definitely put pressure on the expected starter Drew Barker and he'll be great in the quarterback room with his ability to read defenses and help setting up the game plan.

Our Take: To be sure, the Gators already have some very good tailbacks in the fold, but Thompson is a difference-maker, able to break tackles while also possessing enough quickness to make guys miss in space. He could have gone almost anywhere, but Thompson chose Florida and the expectation is that, at the very least, he will be the bruiser of the group this coming fall.

Our Take: Fatu could play every down for the Trojans, but he'll be worked into the rotation up front and he'll be asked to get pressure on the quarterback, something he does really well, from the interior.
