JCFootball.com Top 101

The 2003 pre-season JCFootball.com JC Top 101 is here. The list consists of student athletes from around the nation who are impact players for their teams and likely to move on to play D1 football. The early 101 list is not ranked in any kind of order--all of this guys are darned good. As you can imagine, it's incredibly difficult to determine who to put on our list! So many possibilities...so few spots. (more early next week)

The JC Top 101 is not broken down in numerical order. These are simply the best 101 players in our opinion. After the season JCFootball.com may put out its final JC Top 101 with players ranked in order, 1 through 101.

1 Ryan Powdrell ILB 6-1 250 Saddleback
A prep All-American who is proving to be a JC All-American too. Committed to Fresno State out of high school. USC, Washington, and many others are pursuing.
2 Duce Lutui OT 6-5 350 Snow
The best offensive lineman they've had at Snow in a long, long time. Could have an NFL future.
3 Albert Toeiana OT 6-7 325 CC San Francisco
Arguable the best offensive lineman in the state. Signed with Oregon out of HS but didn't qualify. Would be starting for the Ducks right now. Powerful, great feet, long arms...the whole package.
4 Robert Johnson QB 6-1 200 Reedley
Has the same qualities as former Sac City/Iowa State QB Seneca Wallace. Fast and elusive in the open field. State offensive MVP as a freshman. Texas Tech, Tennessee, Kentucky, Kansas State, and Washington are just a few who have offered.
5 Paul Soliai OL 6-4 325 Coffeyville
Big time, NFL prospect. Committed to Utah much to the dismay of every other D1 in the country.
6 Jesse Mahelona DT 6-2 295 Orange Coast
A real plugger who can also wreak havoc in the backfield. Tripped Oklahoma. Heavily recruited. Broke his foot early this year and will miss remainder of season.
7 Delanie Walker WR 6-2 220 Mt. San Antonio
Being recruited by Kansas State, Pac-10 schools, etc. Started in 9 games last year….named to the '02 Mission Conf. – 2nd Team as Wide Receiver…36 catches for 613 yards, 5  TDs…superior leaping ability, great blocker, and 4.4 speed. High School:  2001 1st Team Division VII…2001 The Times' All-Region Football Team, San Gabriel Valley…2000 and '01 All Miramonte League Offensive POY… 2001 Pomona Red Devil of the Year….played in East/West All Star game….placed 1st in the Division III 100 meters…1st place in 2002 Miramonte League Meet.
8 Tyler McMeans OG 6-5 342 Lackawanna
Committed to Miami. Former military man turned future NFL prospect. Following in footsteps of ex-Lackawanna grad Bryant McKinnie (Minn. Vikings). Consistent. Spent 4 years in the Marines before enrolling at Lackawanna.
9 Quincy Butler CB 6-2 200 Tyler
First Team All-District Cornerback/QB; three-time All-State. Cornerback/QB; All-American Safety in high school; signed with Texas Tech out of high school. Leads the Apaches this season in INTs with 3.
10 E.J. Kuale LB 6-3 225 Dodge City
Leading the Jayhawk Conf. in tackles. A sideline-to-sideline terror. Getting looks from SEC and Big 12 schools. Transfer from Georgia Tech.
11 Shawn Huntsinger C 6-3 285 Canyons
All-Conference performer as a frosh. Technically sound.
12 Yamil Lebron DE 6-1 260 Tyler
An All-Central Texas and state top 100 prospect in HS. Had six tackles and two sacks in a 41-17 TJC victory over Cisco College this year. Also returned a Cisco fumble 75 yards for a score. "He's very mature for his age and smart," said TJC football coach Dale Carr, who added that Lebron would also be a good coach. "Whatever he wants to do, he's one of those guys that's going to be successful."
13 Randall Swoopes OL/DL 6-3 305 Georgia Military
Playing both ways in 2003. Placed by U. of Georgia and will probably re-sign with the Bulldogs.
14 Remi Ayodele DT 6-3 280 NE Oklahoma
Placed by Purdue. Brother is Akin Ayodele, who is a starter for Jacksonville.
15 Kolo Kapanui TE 6-4 245 El Camino
Bounceback from U. of Southern California. The whole package: hands, toughness, blocking. Coaches will frequently put him in the slot.
16 Tyron Brackenridge CB 5-11 180 Chaffey
Wash. State, Hawaii, Kansas, and many others are interested early. Great cover skills.
17 Scott Ware S 6-2 220 Santa Rosa
Committed to U. of Southern California where he'll probably be a free safety. 4.0 student who graduates in December.
18 Byron Smith DT 6-2 280 Kilgore
Could be the top defensive tackle in the conference.
19 Dashon Goldson S 6-1 205 Coffeyville
Redshirt freshman who signed with Wash. out of Narbonne HS in Calif. Coach says he's in mold of Kenny Easley. Playmaker.
20 Aaron Brown OLB 6-2 230 Compton
Great motor. Was a sack-machine as a freshman. Ran consecutive 4.44 forties at last spring's JCFootball.com SoCal combine (on a track).
21 Deqawn Mobley WR 6-2 195 CC San Francisco
All-Conf. as a freshman. Arguably the top WR on a team rich in WR tradition.
22 Tim Brown RB/RET 5-7 175 CC San Francisco
Electrifying. In the mold of Johnny Mack, a CCSF grad now at Texas Tech. Small but more than capable.
23 Jeremy Stewart LB 6-2 230 Compton
An All-Calif. regional pick as a freshman. Great instincts. A step slower than teammate Aaron Brown, posting mid-4.5s at the JCFootball.com combine in SoCal last spring.
24 Mario Stevenson CB 6-1 192 East Mississippi

Stevenson enrolled at Alabama St. after graduating from Melrose HS in Memphis, Tenn. He reports offers from Florida, Louisiana State and Arkansas among others.

25 Claude Wroten DT 6-3 315 Mississippi Delta

Committed to LSU in July. Very quick and strong. Turned down offers from a bevy of SEC and ACC programs.

26 Lee Foliaki

LB

6-2 235 Butler County
Committed to Colorado. Instincts are as good as any LB they've had at Butler Co. according to the HC. Physical and excels at blitzing.
