Readjusted to 24.
Larry Aaron, DT, 6-5, 250, Columbia, Md.
One of the late commitments, 11 sacks as a junior. Played baseball and basketball, and I don’t know which is scarier for opponents. I’m not taking a charge from this guy! Coach Holliday likes multi-sport athletes. Ticketed for the 3-technique tackle; several teams come in late.
Tarik Adams, OL, 6-3, 300, Valdosta, Ga.
The Valdosta pipeline strikes again! One of 5 OLs in the class.
Sean Behrens, OL, 6-3, 290, Lithia, Fla.
Good academically, ticketed to play guard at this time.
Omari Cobb, LB, 6-4, 200, Port St. Lucie, Fla.
A Class 8A third-team all-state honoree. That’s not bad to do that in Florida’s biggest schools. Fits MU’s light ‘n’ speedy linebacker mold.
Rodney Croom, DE, 6-3, 235, Cincinnati, Ohio
13 sacks as a senior for Winton Woods High. Herd coaches have renewed a commitment to Cincy area.
JaQua Daniels, RB, 6-1, 219, Athens, Ga.
You can’t replace Devon Johnson, but this is along those lines.
Raymond Flanders, WR, 5-10, 170, Miami, Fla.
64 catches, 1,019 yards, 12 TDs for Florida 4A champs.
Xavier Gaines, QB/ATH, 6-2, 200, Frostproof, Fla.
Speed, athletic, can throw, can play multiple positions at this level. Coach Cronin has been in contact with this one for several years.
Chris Jackson, DB, 6-0, 160, Tallahassee, Fla. (enrolled)
Won a Florida state title in the 110-meter hurdles. I see Jackson with a 14.39 time on May 1, 2015; not sure what is his best.
Willie Johnson, WR, 6-0, 170, Fort Myers, Fla.
A late, late commitment and apparently, a good one. Also had offers from Arizona, Miami (FL), Ole Miss, North Carolina, South Florida, Tennessee, Western Kentucky and Kent State … Also returned kicks for South Fort Myers and could do so here … clocked at 4.31 in the 40 last summer … Has 95 career catches for 1,560 yards and 14 touchdowns … Averaged 13.8 yards per carry on the ground with two touchdowns as a senior … rated a four-star prospect by ESPN.com. … Personal best in 200-meter run is 21.67 — 0.64 seconds faster than the West Virginia AAA champ.
Tyler King, RB, 5-11, 186, Fort Meade, Fla.
A speed back who can be a return guy.
Jeremiah Maddox, DB, 6-0, 180, Hilton Head Island, S.C. (enrolled)
Another 3-star recruit to fill up secondary position room.
Jaylon McClain-Sapp, DB, 5-11, 175, Jacksonville, Fla.
The word I heard from coach Goebbel is “confident.” As in, “he knows he’s the best on the field.” Like some cocky corners.
Cody Mitchell, ATH, 6-2, 212, Point Pleasant
Eager to follow brother Derek’s footsteps, though he won’t have to arrive as a walk-on. The “athlete” designation is a nod to his ability to be an outside linebacker, tight end or even a power running back, if warranted.
Alex Mollette, OL, 6-3, 284, Suwanee, Ga.
He helped helped North Gwinnett throw for 3,425 yards and 39 touchdowns and run for 1,368 yards and 17 scores en route to the first round of the Class 6A state playoffs. Said to bench-press 385 pounds, which would be comparable to that lifted by Cody Mitchell. … A “mean son of a gun” who can play multiple positions including center.
Garet Morrell, QB, 6-3, 195, Leesburg, Ga.
Broke fibula after leading Lee County to 6-1 start. In my experience, those tend to heal 100 percent, so he should be fine for his redshirt season. Spent 2 years behind Ohio State signee before jumping in for final 2 years.
Jestin Morrow, DB, 5-10, 160, Hilton Head Island, S.C.
Needs a few pounds but he’s not afraid of contact and will play special teams.
C.J. Reavis, DB, 6-1, 205 , Chester, Va., (via East Mississippi CC) (enrolled)
A bigger, more mature player, Coach Goebbel compared him to Ashton Hall.
Brandon Rodgers, WR, 5-10, 173, Prichard, Ala.
The one MU wrenched away from Southern Miss, he is the prototype slot receiver with speed — 10.75 in 100-meter dash (.44 faster than West Virginia AAA champ).
Alex Salguero, OL, 6-3, 310, Bradenton, Fla.
Helped Braden River to Class 7A state semis; perhaps the most physically advanced of the five OL recruits.
Sir Patrick Scott, DB, 6-1, 170, Upper Marlboro, Md.
Formerly committed to Michigan, he had 16 pass breakups and allowed only 8 completions. There’s a ratio you don’t find in the college game.
Will Ulmer, OL, 6-5, 285, Richmond, Ky.
Three stars by ESPN.com. In honor of the late Phil Ratliff, the Herd could always use a Kentucky Headhunter. Earmarked as a tackle, beginning on the right side.
Pro Wells , TE, 6-5, 210, Kenneth City, Fla.
He plays played football for one year. That’s not a bad thing if you have his basketball background. He led state of Florida in tight end yardage.
Jaquan Yulee, LB, 6-1, 246, Chesapeake, Va.
No. 207 on ESPN 300, had 115 tackles, 12 forced fumbles and 10 sacks for 11-3 Indian River. Filthy, filthy credentials. Coach J.C. Price, who patrols Virginia on the recruiting trail, never let up on this guy. … Price: “I don’t know if we’ve had somebody come in the door as polished and big as he his.”
