Class of 2009 WatchMike Colvin QB 6'2 180 Morristown New Jersey
Colvin made a name for himself at the Schiano Shootout at Rutgers last summer. As first year starter as a sophomore, he has good size and can run and throw very well. Has taken on a leadership role at a young age. Has the potential to emerge as one of the top prospects in the state by the time he's a senior.
Andrew Holland QB 6'1 188 Cleveland St. Ignatius Ohio
Holland has stepped in and earned playing time as a sophomore ahead of several quality upperclassmen for the talented St. Ignatius program. It's quite rare for a sophomore QB to do that at St. Iggy, a program that has produced several D-1 QBs, including Michigan State sophomore Brian Hoyer, most of whom did not earn starts until they were juniors. He has pretty good size for a young pup and can beat you with both his arm and leg. Leads a strong group of sophomores (see below for some more) at St. Iggy this year.
Alex Owah RB/DB 5'11 175 4.50 Harrisonburg Virginia
Alex is a very quick runner who shows off a great burst through the line, fine balance and an innate ability to read blocks and find the hole. The latest in a line of talented Owah brothers at Harrisonburg (older brother Andy was the starting TB last year). Through late-October he had already rushed for over 1,400 yards, averaging about 11 yards per carry. As a freshman he saw some varsity action as well, carrying the ball 15 times for 110 yards. Once he fills out he should become a national recruit.
Joseph Parris WR 6'1 173 Cleveland St. Ignatius Ohio
The younger brother of Notre Dame freshman WR Robby Parris has done an admirable job stepping into his older brother's shoes as a rare sophomore starter for the powerful St. Iggy program. Not yet quite as tall as Robby, he's still growing and like older bro' shows impressive hops, hands and route-running ability to go along with deceptive speed. One of the better young prospects in Ohio this year.
Dan Fox TE/DL 6'3 205 Cleveland St. Ignatius Ohio
Continuing with talented sophomores at St. Iggy, Fox could well be the best prospect in the team's Class of 2008. He is a talented TE/DE prospect with a great frame that still has to fill out. He has outstanding athletic ability to go along with his size, showing off outstanding quickness, pretty good strength and a mean streak on the field. A future big-timer.
Kawame Geathers OL/DL 6'4 310 5.20 Carvers Bay South Carolina
The latest in the assembly line of big-time Geathers prospects (his dad is former Buffalo Bill Robert Geathers and older brother Clifton was a prep AA last year). Was a two-way starter on the JV team as a freshman before making the jump to varsity in 2006. A man-child who some feel has the most potential of anyone in the family given his rare combination of size, power and athleticism. Another future all-american.
Marcus Kinney DL/OL 6'2 255 Clarksburg Maryland
Kinney starred ont he JV team as a freshman at Damascus before transferring to Clarksburg for his sophomore year. He is a quick and athletic nose tackle who has the size and frame to get bigger without losing his speed. One of the better young sophomores in Maryland.
Dominique Walker LB/RB 5'11 185 Charlotte Independence North Carolina
Walker is playing for a very, very strong program wihich has produced numerous D-1 players over the years (e.g. Chris Leak) and currently has the longest winning streak in the nation. He's a super-quick and athletic LB who should fill out nicely over the next couple of years and emerge as a D-1 talent.
