8.     Ralph Mency – Jacksonville Ribault (6-3, 225)

9.     Cornelius Forrest – Jacksonville Sandalwood (6-4, 234)

·         Ranking: (7) Forrest is a big kid who is going to create mismatches across the middle of the field. He is too big for a defensive back to cover. He is too fast for a linebacker to cover. He is also a solid downfield blocker. (Reported Offers: Rutgers, Marshall, Syracuse, South Alabama, UAB, Bowling Green, Colorado State, UConn, ECU, Troy State)

10.  Joseph Kirner – Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas (6-4, 210)

·         Ranking: (7) Kirner is a good pass catching tight end. The question with him is his blocking. He does not finish guys off. But you can put him in space and good luck trying to cover him with a linebacker. (Reported Offers: Kentucky, Louisville, Syracuse, Central Michigan)
