THE BEST OF NORTH CAROLINA Power 100
01Lorenzo Featherston DE N/A Page
Featherston battled through injuries as a junior but when he was a healthy, he wreaked
havoc on opposing offenses. He’s 6-7, 215 pounds and has the frame to grow into a monster at the next level.
02 Will Grier QB Florida Davidson Day
Grier threw for a national record 837 yards and 10 touchdowns in one game last season. The Florida commitment has won two consecutive state titles and aims for a third
his senior year.
03 Derrell Scott RB N/A Havelock
Scott is one of the most exciting playmakers in the Southeast. He can return kicks/punts,
catch out of the backfield, run between the tackles and he can play cornerback as well.
04 Bentley Spain OL N/A Providence
Spain suffered a season-ending injury in the first game of his junior season. He looked 100
percent at a Nike NFTC during the spring and was the best offensive lineman in attendance.
05 Elijah Hood LB/RB Notre Dame Charlotte Catholic
Hood runs the ball like a freight train and looks for contact. He also played some snaps
at linebacker and made opponents pay. At 6-0, 212 pounds, Hood has surprising speed
06 Lamont Gaillard DT N/A Pine Forest
Few defensive tackles can get off of the ball as fast as Gaillard. He has offers from the likes
of Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Clemson, South Carolina and many other powerhouse
07 Chris Register LB N/A Dudley
Register is 6-4, 225 pounds and a tackling machine. He has elite speed for his position and
has been productive at the varsity level since his sophomore year.
08 Trevion Thompson WR N/A Hillside
Thompson is a smooth wide receiver that has ideal size at 6-3, 185 pounds. Hillside is
known for producing Division I prospects on a consistent basis and Thompson is the
school’s big-time recruit for 2014.
09 Kentavius Street DE N/A J.H. Rose
Street played high school ball in Georgia prior to last year. His first season at J.H. Rose
was one to remember and he capped it by earning MVP honors at the U.S. Army All-American Combine.
10 Jeb Blazevich TE Georgia Charlotte Christian
Charlotte Christian used Blazevich in a variety of ways in 2012. He’s very athletic and was
also impressive at defensive end last season.
11 Braxton Berrios ATH N/A Leesville Road
Berrios is one of the best route runners in the nation. He is a dangerous kick/punt returner
and is electric with the ball in the hands.
12 DeAndre Thompkins ATH Penn State Swansboro
Thompkins is one of the fastest football prospects in the state. He had numerous kickoff
returns for touchdowns and will be an effective weapon for Penn State in the Big Ten.
13 Will Richardson OL Virginia Cummings
Richardson has lost over 40 pounds during the course of a year and is down to 310 pounds. He
moves so well for his size and has a mean streak that one loves to see in an offensive lineman.
14 Donte Thomas-Williams RB N/A Hillside
Thomas-Williams split carries with 2013 UNC signee Khris Francis but this year will be his
time to shine. He already has offers from the likes of Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State
and many others.
15 Harold Landry DE/LB Boston College Pine Forest
Landry stood out at defensive end last season but some schools are recruiting him as
a linebacker. He is an early commitment to Boston College but big-time schools such as
Auburn, Clemson, Florida State and South Carolina have also offered.
16 Germaine Pratt DB/LB N.C. State High Point Central
Pratt is a ball hawk and has recorded many interceptions the past two seasons. He plays
safety but has the frame to grow into a linebacker at the next level.
17 Jefferie Gibson DB N.C. State Gray’s Creek
Gibson has a nose for the ball but he’s also one of the hardest hitters in the state at his
position. He’s 6-4, 185 pounds and can also play wide receiver and return kicks and punts.
18 Arthur Williams DT N/A E.E. Smith
Williams had a great junior season at E.E. Smith but his stock really soared this spring when
college coaches were able to see him on the hoof and see his athleticism.
19 Robert Dinkins DE North Carolina Olympic
Dinkins is a bit of tweener being that he’s 6-2, 245 pounds. He will be a great fit in North
Carolina’s scheme as he is a relentless pass rusher and has a solid motor.
20 Cayson Collins LB North Carolina Berry Academy
Collins has a great frame and a lot of upside. He also played some tight end last season but
his speed is what makes him a high-caliber linebacker at the next level.
21 Isaac Stewart LB N/A Butler
Stewart is a prototypical linebacker that is a sure tackler and good in coverage. His brother
plays D-I football and was a star for Butler and East Meck.
22 Joshua Cabrera WR N/A Northside
Cabrera moved from Georgia and played his first season at Northside last year. Northside
doesn’t throw it a ton but Cabrera is the school’s big-play guy and he can also make plays
23 Jalen McClendon QB N.C. State West Meck
McClendon is a QB that college coaches feel has a ton of upside. He has a strong arm and
good poise but he can also run for the first down if the pocket closes down on him.
24 Kalen McCain DB N.C. State Hillside
Mc Cain has a nose for the ball and solid speed for a safety. He made an early commitment
to Virginia Tech but recently decided to decommit and is now committed to N.C. State.
25 Avery Edwards TE North Carolina Ravenscroft
Edwards has great size at 6-5, 220 pounds and is very athletic. Some compare his athleticism to UNC tight end Eric Ebron. Edwards turns it up in the red zone.
26 Jamiek Davis WR N/A Independence
Davis just transferred to Independence from Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, N. Y. He’s a
big-play wide receiver that has great hands.
27 Jabril Robinson DT N/A North Brunswick
Robinson was a monster on both sides of the ball last season for the Scorpions. He is still
raw at his position but has a lot of potential to be a big-time player at the next level.
28 Isaiah Robinson RB N/A Independence
Robinson is a bigger back at 6-0, 220 pounds. He already has an offer from Louisville and
is a punishing runner. He is one of the better backs in the Charlotte area.
29 Johnathan Lloyd ATH Duke Southern Alamance
Lloyd played quarterback for Southern Alamance last season and also made some plays
at cornerback. He’s likely a wide receiver at the next level and is dangerous when the ball
is in his hands.
