DT | 6-3 / 265
Madison Central (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 39
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 12/15/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Baylor, Kentucky, Miami (Fl), Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Syracuse, Texas Tech
Scouting Report: Bryon gets off of his blocks well and has an explosive first step. He will need to work on his overall speed if he wants to stay at defensive end on the next level.
CB | 5-11 / 175
Boyd H. Anderson (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 92
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 7/31/09
Committed Over: Florida State, Miami (Fl), Oregon, Tennessee, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Coleman is one of the top pure cover corners in Florida. He has terrific, natural cover skills and can be left on an island due to his outstanding speed. He possesses solid height, but will need to fill out his frame and get stronger. Coleman is a player that has a high ceiling because the athletic tools are there for him to be a dominant CB at the next level. He consistently has displayed the ability to break on the football. -Geoff Vogt
Wayne Dorsey
DE | 6-8 / 255
Mississippi Gulf Coast (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 12/13/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Florida State, Michigan, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, Tennessee
OG | 6-7 / 325
Walker Valley (TN)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 33
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 8/7/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Louisville, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Duke is a big lineman that played a lot of tackle in high school, but is defintiely an inside guy on the next level. He is a very strong and agressive offensive lineman that can drive defenders well off the ball. He needs to play a little lighter on his feet and become a little more mobile to improve his pass protection, but he is a physical OL that will battle hard in the trenches. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
FB | 5-11 / 233
Ringgold (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 11
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 1/31/10
Committed Over: Auburn, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, UAB
Scouting Report: Eastland is a physical back that could be a fullback or play tailback in a one-back set. He is a downhill runner with very good power. He is not a guy with great speed or acceleration, but he he hits the hole hard and runs through arm tackles. He is going to end up likely at fullback in college, so he will need to work on his blocking skills. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
Cordell Giles
OLB | 6-4 / 220
Ray Brooks (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 101
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 2/28/09
Committed Over: Alabama, LSU, Memphis, Mississippi, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Giles has the frame to do a lot of good things at a variety of positions. He could bulk up and play defensive end and provide a pass rush off the edge or make the move over to offense and compete as a tight end. He has very good hands and it is an above average route runner. He needs to spend a year in the weight room in order to specialize at his college position and to add some much needed muscle.
Tony Grimes
CB | 6-0 / 173
Hollywood Hills (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 26
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 1/30/10
Committed Over: Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon
Scouting Report: Grimes is a corner with good length and toughness. He is a physical corner that plays better closer to the line of scrimage. He uses his hands well up tight, he jams very well, and he plays a very physical corner position. He can work on overall quickness, his backpedal, and play in zone. Grimes has the skills to be a very good tight corner on the next level. - Suth Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons
Terrence Hackney
OT | 6-6 / 320
Hargrave Military (VA)
Rating:

C | 6-3 / 295
Springville (AL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 16
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 9/8/09
Committed Over: Auburn, Duke, Florida State, Southern Miss, Stanford, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Hughes could play on either side of the ball. He is a strong and very powerful player. He explodes off the line of scrimmage and has a nasty streak. He has good footwork and really understands the game.--Andrew Bone Scout.com
OLB | 6-2 / 220
North Clayton (GA)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 85
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 5/22/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Jackson is an athlete that doubles as a linebacker and running back for his high school team, but his home will be on the defensive side of the ball in college. He is a hitter and a physical player, but he tackles at high at times and can be better player more behind his pads. He can play sideline to sideline and chase the ball down, but needs to work on his coverage drops. - South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons
Damien Jackson
S | 6-3 / 205
Mississippi Gulf Coast (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 11/25/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Auburn, Louisville, LSU, North Carolina, Oklahoma State
Delvin Jones
DE | 6-6 / 230
Palmetto Senior (FL)
Rating:
Scout300: 237
Pos Rank: 32
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska
Scouting Report: From a physical standpoint, he has a skill set that only a few players every year. He runs really well for his size, he’s explosive, a great athlete, strong, everything. As a defensive end, he wins because he’s so explosive off the ball and is able to beat opposing tackles right off the bat with his quickness upfield. It’s unclear how well he’ll be able to get used to college size having not produced against the toughest competition in Florida.
QB | 6-0 / 195
East Mississippi (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: JC
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 2/11/09
Committed Over: Alabama, LSU
Scouting Report: Mackey is a field general that also happens to be a very good athlete. He’s capable of hurting a team with his legs, but does the bulk of his damage with his full field vision spotting the open receivers. He’s especially poised in the pocket, giving his receivers extra time to get open. He has a slight drop in his delivery that affects his accuracy at times, but overall delivers the ball on target, especially the deep throws - Scott Kennedy.
Carlton Martin
DT | 6-1 / 270
Madison Central (MS)
Rating:
Scout300: 199
Pos Rank: 22
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 12/25/09
Committed Over: Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Syracuse, Texas Tech
Scouting Report: Carlton is the most explosive defensive tackle in the magnolia state because of his first step and ability to shed his blocks. He also possesses great speed which allows him to go from sideline to sideline. Martin will need to work on his size for the next level.
Brishen Matthews
S | 6-1 / 195
Monticello (AR)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 65
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 7/29/09
Committed Over: Arkansas, Memphis, Mississippi State, Tulsa
Scouting Report: Brishen Matthews comes from a football family and has great knowlege of the game. He has a knack for finding the football and can cover a lot of ground. He has excellent hands and very good instincts on the field.--Andrew Bone Scout.com
WR | 5-11 / 175
Atlantic (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 82
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 1/6/10
Committed Over: Arkansas, Louisville, Miami (Fl)
Scouting Report: Mireles is a legit burner, his first impact should be on kickoff returns where his jets will be on display. As a WR he will be able to stretch the field. He is raw in the finer points of the position and needs to improve his route running skills. His height is fine, but he has to get stronger in the weight room. Mireles athleticism and speed give him upside down the road. -Geoff Vogt
Eric Mitchell
CB | 5-11 / 170
Mariner (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 62
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 8/18/09
Committed Over: Louisville, Miami (Fl), Michigan, South Florida, UCF, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Mitchell is extremely versatile and has played a number of positions at the prep level, but made the biggest impact at running back when the ball was in his hands. He’s also a skilled-pass catcher so the ball skills should be there for a smooth transition to corner. He has ideal size at 5-11, good speed, excellent athletic ability, and good ball skills. The lack of experience as a true cover corner is a cause for concern.
RB | 6-1 / 210
South Panola (MS)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 32
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 1/6/10
Committed Over: LSU, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Tennessee
Scouting Report: Nick the "Big" Parker is a one cut north/south runner who has surprisingly break away speed once he gets to the next level. He will need to work on his quickness and lateral movement on the next level.
WR | 6-3 / 180
Noxubee County (MS)
Rating:
Scout300: 130
Pos Rank: 20
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Alabama, Florida State, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Southern Miss, West Virginia
Scouting Report: Vincent is perhaps the most gifted athlete in the state of Mississippi. He possesses elite athleticism and is a huge weapon in the Red Zone as he can go up and get the ball with the best of them. Sanders will need to continue to get stronger and bigger for the next level.
Jeff Scott
RB | 5-9 / 173
Archbishop Carroll (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 53
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 8/17/09
Committed Over: Colorado State, Florida International, Kansas State, Tennessee
Scouting Report: The first thing that jumps out at you when watching him play is how fast he is. One of the fastest players on the field every time and has the ability to run away from people. He’s an excellent outside runner and has a few extra gears when he gets into the open field. He also runs hard against the toughest competition. At 5-foot-8 and about 170 pounds, he is not ideal size for an running back every down running back.
CB | 5-11 / 180
Prattville (AL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 265
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Arkansas State, Marshall, Memphis, Southern Miss
Mike Thomas

Simmons (MS)
Rating:
Scout300: 137
Pos Rank: 17
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 1/27/10
Committed Over: Auburn, Baylor, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Southern Miss, Vanderbilt
Scouting Report: Carlos is probably the most explosive defensive lineman in the Magnolia State because of his quickness and motor that never stops. He will have to work on his strength and size for the next level.
Ralph Williams
OLB | 6-1 / 222
Miami Southridge (FL)
Rating:
Pos Rank: 39
Committed to: MISSISSIPPI
Commit Date: 2/3/10
Committed Over: Arkansas, Florida State, Tennessee, Virginia
Scouting Report: Very skill at getting upfield and creating pressure in the opponent’s backfield. No matter the opponent, Williams causes havoc. He lines up at the edge of the line and is simply too quick and explosive for nearly all high school tackles to handle. He creates mismatches and causes opponents to really change up what they’re doing. he doesn’t have a whole lot of experience dropping back and playing in space.
