College Football 2013 Recruiting: Featuring Five of the Best
Young Bucks of the 2013 Class
It is never to early to look into the future of college football. Especially if you are looking at future potential stars. Many of the top 2013 recruits that are currently finishing out their high school careers have already committed to their future college squads. However, there are those kids who are still keeping their options open and continuing to make campus visits.
Over the next few months, I'll be featuring dozens of the nation's best football players in the class of 2013. Most of the top recruiting classes consist of the usual suspects, such as the Alabama Crimson Tide, LSU Tigers, Florida Gators and Auburn Tigers. There are however some nice surprises as well when looking at the top incoming classes.
The Michigan Wolverines and Texas A&M Aggies have made great leaps in their recruiting success. The Wolverines had a few down years during the Rich Rodriguez coaching era, but Brady Hoke has Michigan back on track. The Aggies have a couple dozen players already committed.
Lane Kiffin and the USC Trojans arguably have the best future crop of players from this class, as they have five five-star players who have committed. They will surely need the help because not only is senior quarterback Matt Barkley heading to the NFL, but receivers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee are likely to as well.
Today I will feature a monster running-back and the best offensive-lineman, who both have yet to decide on where they will play football. You will also see the best quarterback in the class, a freakishly athletic tight-end, and a beast of an inside linebacker.
Click the "next" button to see these young bucks.
Laremy Tunsil - Offensive Tackle, Undecided
Laremy Tunsil is considered the best offensive-tackle prospect in the country. At 6'6, 295 pounds, Tunsil has every powerhouse team begging the big guy to come help defend their respective quarterbacks.
The Lake City, Florida native is strongly considering Alabama and the Georgia Bulldogs. Surely disappointing news to home state squads, the Florida State Seminoles, Florida Gators and Miami Hurricanes who all are still in the running too. Other schools who have an outside chance at landing Tunsil are LSU, USC, and the Oklahoma Sooners.
When you are one of the best recruits in the country, you can wear any kind of glasses you want. (See above)
O.J. Howard - Tight End, Alabama
O.J. Howard is a freak of an athlete, and his recruiting buzz surely can attest to that. Howard is considered the best tight-end in the country, and Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide got his commitment back in 2011.
The 6'5 Bama commit ran a 4.4 forty-yard dash and is big enough to not only be a huge receiving mismatch, but a quality run-blocking tight-end as well.
Derrick Green - Running Back, Undecided
Man, Derrick Green is my favorite recruit from this class. This beast dropped over 50 pounds to make sure he could continue to play running-back. At 6'0, 220 pounds, this kid brings the boom when running the rock.
Green, from Richmond, Virginia, is undecided and has a variety of schools still in the mix. He is showing interest in Auburn, Michigan, Oregon, Tennessee, Mississippi and Virginia Tech. I will surely be keeping up with any news on where the nation's best RB will be playing football in 2013.
Max Browne - Quarterback, USC
Max Browne is just another top quarterback recruit heading to southern California. The USC Trojans tend to consistently land the nation's best incoming QB's and they did it again as Browne committed back in April this year.
Browne, 6'5, 215 pounds, is a pro-style quarterback, who has a big arm and great intangibles. He is surprisingly athletic for his size, and excels at throwing the rock on the run. It will be difficult making the fans forget about Barkley any time soon though.
Reuben Foster - Inside Linebacker, Auburn
Reuben Foster is the "beast of an inside linebacker" that I mentioned earlier. The Auburn, Alabama native had originally stated he would play for Alabama, but recently claimed he is 100% sure he will be an Auburn Tiger now. Foster actually got the Auburn "A" tatted on his forearm, making it safe to say he will be a Tiger.
Foster is 6'1, 250 pounds and is arguably the best line-backer in the nation. He ran a 4.6 forty-yard dash, pretty quick for a 250 pounder. Just look at this kid's neck. Monster.
