This is an article from the Jan. 13, 2014 issue
CB Hoover (Ala.) High
The 6-foot 179-pounder has size and physicality. As a sophomore, he broke Robert Griffin III's AAU record in the 110-meter hurdles.
Considering: Florida State, Alabama (his father, Bobby, played at Bama)
2 ADOREE' JACKSON
CB Junipero Serra High (Calif.)
He'll likely end up a corner but could line up at slot receiver and punt returner. At 5'10", 182 pounds, he's also a 2016 Olympic hopeful in the long jump.
Considering: USC, Florida, LSU, UCLA, Oklahoma, Tennessee
3 DAMIAN PRINCE
OT Bishop McNamara High (Md.)
When the 6'6" lineman trimmed from 337 pounds to 292, his stock ballooned. With sound footwork and oven-mitt-sized hands, he's a future stud.
Considering: Several schools, but leaning toward Maryland
4 MALACHI DUPRE
WR John Curtis Christian High (La.)
A 6'3" 190-pounder with soft hands, he's the 2013 state champ in the high jump, long jump and triple jump who excels at going up to get the ball.
Considering: LSU is the favorite
5 JOHN SMITH
S Long Beach Poly High (Calif.)
Smith, nicknamed JuJu, continues to add muscle to his 6'1" frame. He has the classic skill set for a safety and grew up dreaming of USC. (He played in Snoop Lion's Pop Warner league.)
Considering: USC, Alabama, Notre Dame, Oregon
6 SOLOMON THOMAS
DE Coppell (Texas) High
The 6'3" 258-pounder has a 6'6" wingspan. He's not overly quick, but he compensates with his football IQ (great at timing the snap count) and physicality.
Considering: Arkansas, Ohio State, Stanford, Texas
7 DERRICK NNADI
DT Ocean Lakes High (Va.)
At 6'1" and 305 pounds, Nnadi controls the line of scrimmage. His quick hands shed blockers, and his feet never stop moving.
Considering: Florida State, Ohio State, Penn State, Virginia Tech
8 DAMIEN MAMA
OG/OT St. John Bosco High (Calif.)
With imposing size (6'4", 370 pounds), Mama can play guard or tackle. Either way, he finishes his blocks with devastating power.
Considering: USC, UCLA
9 STEVEN PARKER
S Jenks (Okla.) High
The 6'2", 188-pound Parker, a rangy quarterback in the secondary, may stay in state at Oklahoma, where his grandfather Charles helped break the color barrier in the 1950s.
Considering: Oklahoma, Texas A&M
10 LORENZO CARTER
DE Norcross (Ga.) High
Georgia's top prospect, Carter is a 6'5", 230-pounder athletic enough to play linebacker in a 3--4 scheme. His frame could handle another 30 to 40 pounds.
Considering: Georgia, Florida
