Ultimate ESPN 300: Future members
It’s never too early to look ahead to next year. Here are five current prospects in the 2014 class we feel could make their mark in future editions of the Ultimate ESPN 300.
RB Leonard Fournette (LSU): It’s not just based on the fact that he’s the top-rated player in the ESPN 300, but rather the perfect blend of talent, need and fit that awaits him at LSU. Fournette is an ideal downhill back for LSU's system. He is physically ready to carry the load and should have an immediate chance to make an impression with the Tigers' lack of depth in the backfield.
Jabrill Peppers has the ability to make an immediate impact at Michigan.
CB Jabrill Peppers (Michigan): Michigan has some holes on both sides of the ball, and this talented athlete with uncanny savvy and play-making ability should find a significant role in one of the three phases of the game for the Wolverines.
OT Cameron Robinson (Alabama): We have stated he’s is one of the best tackles since Andre Smith. Robinson sits at No. 11 on this year’s release of the Ultimate 300. He's a talented tackle prospect who could get significant playing time, with Cyrus Kouandjio declaring early for the NFL draft, and follow in the footsteps of past Alabama tackles and current Ultimate 300 members.
DE Myles Garrett (Texas A&M): Elite pass rushers are difficult to keep off the field, and Garrett is one of the best in the class. He's heading to A&M, which is in need of difference-makers on defense. Garrett has excellent physical tools and intangibles needed to succeed early.
S Quin Blanding (Virginia): Blanding is a scheme-versatile player. He's a physically ready DB with a five-star skill set who should be able to make a difference early for a program that's trying to turn things around on the field.
