PRIME-TIME PLAYERS

ANDRE DEBOSE
Rated the nation's No. 7 wide receiver in the ESPNU 150, Debose is a versatile pass-catcher thanks to experience under center in the spread offense. Scores of programs are clamoring for his services.

JARVIS GILES
A Tennessee commit, Giles ran for 20 touchdowns and more than 1,400 yards last season. He is rated the nation's No. 5 senior running back in the ESPNU 150.

RAY RAY ARMSTRONG
A tremendous athlete on both sides of the ball, Armstrong is rated the nation's No. 18 overall recruit in the ESPNU 150. His college position has yet to be determined.

DEMONTE MCALLISTER
McAllister, rated the nation's the No. 9 defensive lineman in the ESPNU 150, had 12 sacks last season. He has committed to play for FSU, but at press time was still taking visits and fielding offers.

COACH'S TAKE

AN AREA COACH ON RYNE GIDDINS:
"Probably one of the best defensive ends we've ever played against. He presents a perfect balance of power and speed and really creates some problems for your offense. In the end, he's just a great player."
