Some Commits To Watch

As promised...

Mostly taken from the Rivals100 list, I've watched video of most, discussed their abilities in some fashion with others.

  • Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan-Looks like a good athlete.
  • Victor Harris, Ath/CB, Virginia Tech-Should develop into a very good football player.  Nice speed/size combination.
  • DeSean Jackson, WR, California-Stunning open field skills, great quickness, and going to a program that knows how to use receivers and has the passing game to showcase one as good as DeSean.
  • Jason Gwaltney, TB, West Virginia-Ran that funny wishbone offense in high school.  Great vision, speed, size.  Should become WV's best back ever if he remains healthy.
  • Marlon Lucky, TB, Nebraska-Size, decent speed, great pure running abilities.  It looks like Nebraska will also feature him to some extent in their passing game.  A guy who will play early, fast-tracking his development.
  • Kenneth Phillips, S, Miami-One of those "great athlete, great size, immediate impact at strong safety" guys like Darnell Bing, Roy Williams, and Sean Taylor.  Plug-and-play.
  • Mark Sanchez, QB, USC-Will have to wait and also face off against John David Booty next year, but does everything well, has a great feel for throwing the ball, great leadership abilities.
  • Fred Rouse, WR, Florida State-A bit of a strange character, but incredible physical abilities.  Talked like he was ready for the NFL before even enrolling as a high school senior.
  • Melvin Alaeze, DE, Maryland-A dominant rush end who can play early.  Gifted.  Great first step, manhandles lineman or can just go by them.
  • Patrick Turner, WR, USC-People talked about Dwayne Jarrett being the next Mike Williams.  That was a poor comparison, as Turner is much closer to the real deal.  He's a faster Williams, perhaps an upgrade as scary as that sounds.
  • Jamaal Charles, TB, Texas-Somewhat of a sleeper, his film looks real good.  Skilled open-field runner, sheds first-wave contact quickly.

Antone Smith is going to be very good, provided that FSU doesn't waste him like they have with Booker. I think he is as quick and elusive as Booker, but much stronger as well. He is kinda a mix of Booker and Leon Washington.
