Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington may only have a couple prospects coming out in 2007, but look for at least four Division I players next season according to head coach Tim Harris.
The players receiving the majority of attention at the moment include cornerback Brandon Harris and wide receiver Davon Johnson.
"For being such a young kid, he is a tremendous leader and I'd say that is his biggest strength right now," he said. "He still needs to improve on his tackling, but his coverage skills are very solid. He's also a good person with a great personality and is a leader off the field too. He even makes sure to help other teammates in the classroom.

"I'm hearing a lot from Miami, Rutgers, Baylor and Ole Miss. All those schools are likely to offer him after September 1st."
5-foot-11, 165-pound receiver Davon Johnson will be recruited even more.
"He is a silent killer on the field that gets the job done, but doesn't talk much," he said. "He has great discipline, leads by example and has tremendous speed. He ran a 4.33 at Miami's camp this summer and then followed that up with a 4.29-second 40-yard dash at Rutgers. He is also a great kid academically. I expect Miami and Rutgers to offer really soon."
Though Johnson and Harris are receiving most of the interest, two other players are getting serious looks already.
"Wide receiver Thearon Collier should receive an offer from South Florida in September," Harris said. "He's also getting a hard look from Rutgers, Ole Miss and others.
"Thearon is a very skilled athlete with great hands and he runs excellent routes. He has the ability to stretch a defense and makes plays. He is also another quiet kid that leads by example on the field."
Finally, quarterback Sancho McDonald is getting looks. The 6-foot-2, 165-pounder has a couple schools seriously interested.
"South Florida and Ole Miss will likely offer him come September," he said. "He is a young quarterback that has a nice strong arm and great potential. He reminds a lot of people of Brent Schaeffer, but he needs to improve on his reads and footwork a bit more."
