Starting with the class of 2010 players like quarterback Barry Brunetti, 6-2, 210 pound quarterback from Memphis-University School will be one of the top players to watch for in 2009. Brunetti led his Owls team to a state championship with an outstanding junior season compiling over 1000 yards passing and 600 yards rushing. Brunetti will be one of the most sought after prospects in the state already reporting visits from Tennessee and Georgia.
Another prospect to make the all state team is class of 2010 prospect Jaques Smith from Ooltewah (Tenn.). Smith will not only be one of the most sought after prospects in Tennessee, but possibly the entire nation. His speed, agility, and strength make him a very good outside linebacker with a solid ability to play in pass coverage and pressure the quarterback.
Class of 2011 running back prospect Justin Williams from Nashville-Davidson Academy is another young prospect on the All State team. Williams set himself apart in 2008 while rushing for 2807 yards and 39 touchdowns. The sky seems to be the limit for this running back prospect as he hopes to make a name for himself.
Another prospect for the class of 2011 prospect making the 5A All State Team is Knoxville-Bearden running back Devrin Young. In 2008, Young helped lead his Bulldog team to an eight win season while putting up 1372 yards and 17 touchdowns. Young hopes to carry on his skills into his junior and senior seasons in order to possible land some scholarship offers.
The state is loaded with talent for the class of 2011. Another top prospect is class 4A All State quarterback Darian Stone, 6-1, 185 pounds from Clinton (Tenn.) In just his sophomore season Stone racked up 1793 yards passing, 19 touchdowns to just four interceptions. Stone is a dual threat quarterback as he added, 826 yards rushing and seven touchdowns.
For class 2A All State Team the Tornadoes from Alcoa (Tenn.) once again contributed a top prospect on the team. Defensive end/tight end prospect Tyler Robinson, 6-3, 225 pounds from Alcoa should expect to have a busy winter and spring filled with visitors and combine performances.
