Overview


Following the 2004 season, I continue to believe that the 2005 class is a
quality one with a lot of depth. The top 10 or so players are ranked as some of
the best on the East Coast – and some are the best in the country. This class
has a lot of depth and this can be seen in the amount of prospects going to
Division I-A programs. At this point, all of the below listed prospects have
received official scholarship offers from Division I-A programs. Even more that
are not listed in the top 30 have at least received Division I offers.


Victor Harris

Highland Springs star Victor “Macho” Harris retained the top spot
in the state with an excellent senior season and an appearance in the Army
All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. The 6-0, 180-pound Harris carried his
team’s offense this season, rushing for 2,345 yards and 33 total touchdowns.
For his career, Harris compiled 5,320 yards on 506 carries and 65 rushing
touchdowns. He added 7 career touchdown receptions and 6 career touchdown
returns.

Defensively, Harris had 22 tackles with 1 sack, 3 interceptions and 3 pass
break-ups 2004. Though he switched between safety and cornerback in high school,
Harris figures to play cornerback and return punts and kicks initially at
Virginia Tech. He could switch to offense to play running back or wide receiver
if necessary. Harris has the potential be a two-way player further down the road
at Tech.

A 5-star prospect, Harris is one of the top overall recruits in the country.
He chose Virginia Tech over Miami, Michigan, Southern California and Virginia
among others. He displays game-breaking speed and excellent agility and
fluidity. His ability to accelerate, change directions and move his hips is one
of the reasons he is expected to be a shut down cornerback on the next level.

Following Harris is Phoebus tailback Elan Lewis
