Big cornerbacks are highly sought after, which is why Josh Shelton's (Mount Juliet, Tenn./Mount Juliet) recruitment is picking up.

"Boy he's big and physical and has great feet and speed," said Mount Juliet defensive coordinator Trey Perry about the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder. "He runs 4.4 [40-yard dash] and bench presses 300 pounds. In man concept he will still tackle. Many corners out there won't. He has great range and is quite the competitor."

Shelton recorded 44 tackles, nine pass breakups, four interceptions and two blocked field goals last season as a junior.
