Class of 2009 WatchJacob Karam QB 6'3 190 4.70 Friendswood Texas
Karam is among the top young talents in the state of Texas. He has the size and strong arm of your classic dropback passer but also possesses surprising quickness and the ability to flush out of the pocket. His throwing mechanics are exceptional, as he has been tutored by former NFL QBs and attended summer camps at such schools as LSU and Houston. He takes his football very seriously and is very focused both on and off the field. The first sophomore starter at QB for Friendswood in 15 years and the last two QBs have gone on to play college ball. He will be the best of the bunch.
Morrell Presley TE 6'3 190 Carson California
Presley has a great frame that has a lot of room to fill out. What is really impressive is his athleticism and quick feet. An impact player as a sophomore for a program that has produced quite a bit of D-1 talent over the years.
Brandon Haynes OL 6'3 270 5.20 Dallas Jesuit Texas
Haynes is one of the top young offensive linemen in Texas. He has the power and quickness to become a top-tier D-1 prospect at OG. Good enough to start as a sophomore for a 5A program.
Tyler Evans OL/DL 6'6 270 Strafford Missouri
Evans is a talented two-way lineman from a small school in Missouri. He started as a freshman and was named Second Team Class 2A All-State on the defensive line as a sophomore. Has great size for a sophomore together with nice feet and surprising athleticism. One of the top sleepers in the midlands.
Sean Stanley DL/LB/TE 6'2 230 4.80 Gaithersburg Maryland
Stanley is a prototype TE/DE with 4.8 speed, a 33-inch vertical leap and a size 17 shoe (which means he will still grow a lot). He started three games as a freshman for a solid program. One of the top talents in Montgomery County.
Travis Brown LB/RB 6'2 215 Fresno Clovis West California
Brown is among the nation's top sophomore linebackers. Fast and strong, he has been dominant as a sophomore and is generating buzz as one of the very best underclassmen in California. He also has great bloodlines, as older brother Eric was a former star at Clovis West and dad, Dan Brown, played at Boise State and is now the defensive coordinator at Fresno State.
Chris Williams LB/RB 6'1 205 Abilene Texas
Chris was already being touted by his coach as a freshman as the next great player to emerge out of Abilene. He certainly lived up to the hype as a sophomore, being named a rare sophomore First Team All-District performer in Class 5A. Williams should get bigger over the next few years, but you can't teach his quickness and instinctive ability to hunt down ball carriers.
Torsten Boss DB/QB/WR 6'0 170 Lowell Michigan
Boss was a freshman starter at FS and backed up all-state QB Keith Nichol. As a sophomore, he was on the receiving end of Nichol's bombs. He will be the go-to guy for the fine Lowell program in 2007. He's a tough and instinctive player who should field D-1 offers by he time his senior year rolls around. I like him best as a DB.
