1. ALABAMA

This is a very deep group led by Dallas Turner and a few physical freaks like Kendrick Blackshire. Some of these guys could be hybrids or grow into defensive linemen.

The Terps hit a home run here pulling Branden Jennings away from Michigan and keeping Demeioun Robinson in-state and then finished with five-star Terrence Lewis from Florida.

3. CLEMSON 

Barrett Carter

Barrett Carter is a freaky athlete and Jeremiah Trotter is a huge hitter, and both are among the best in the county. They bring different things to the table.

4. GEORGIA 

Xavian Sorey

Xavian Sorey was a huge pickup. Smael Mondon and the rest can all run to the ball. This group is four deep and all should contribute in the first couple of years.

5. NORTH CAROLINA 

Power Echols

RaRa Dillworth and Power Echols have a chance to be the best outside-inside combo in this class. And Gabe Stephens gets overshadowed a bit, but he is an excellent athlete with speed.
