New four-stars outside the Rivals250

Brown has nice length but also a solid build to go along with it. His route running is polished and his cuts are crisp. The Mississippi-based wide receiver has a knack for getting open over the middle and has solid-enough speed. He often turns intermediate routes into big plays.

Deonte Brown
Decatur (Ala.) Austin
A massive tackle that looks more developed than any high school junior should be, Brown is an absolute bully of a lineman. He has plenty of strength in his upper body but also has incredible footwork for a 320-pound prospect. Players of Brown's size that move so effortlessly have a chance to be great at the college level.

-- Cassidy
Aaron Dowdell
Atlanta (Ga.) Creekside
Dowdell stole the show at the Rivals Camp Series Presented by Under Armour in Atlanta, battling with five-star defensive tackle Derrick Brown and showing that he wasn't afraid to back down. Dowdell has great technique and a lower center of gravity, allowing him to get leverage and hold his ground against larger defensive tackles. He's also a masher when it comes to run blocking, making him a great fit in Georgia's offense.

Simi Fehoko
Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton
Fehoko had very good performances at the Pylon 7-on-7 national tournament in Las Vegas and the Rivals Camp Series stop in Los Angeles this spring, showing enough to earn a bump in the rankings. The lanky wideout was one of the nation's most productive players last fall with over 1,600 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns in only 12 games, and he has followed that up this offseason with strong camp performances. Fehoko has a wide catching radius that makes him a threat in the red zone where quarterbacks can throw the ball only where he can go up and get it. There are plenty of shifty and speedy receivers in the West region this recruiting cycle, but Fehoko offers a different skill set as a possession type that can stretch the field.

Desmond Fitzpatrick
Farmington, Mich.
The 6-foot-2, 189-pound Fitzpatrick has had a really strong off-season and continues to hone his craft. Known since the beginning of his recruitment for being a sharp route-runner, Fitzpatrick also has deceptive speed and a very wide catch radius. The Louisville commit plays even longer than his height suggests and always brings a consistently reliable pair of hands.

Ruben Flowers
Lima (Ohio) Senior
Junior year film showed us several attributes of Flowers' game that project highly at the college level. The Cleveland Rivals Camp gave us a chance to confirm some things in-person - like his size and speed - and also revealed that the 6-foot-4, 191-pounder is a playmaker at the wide receiver position, with the ability to elevate over defensive backs and make the tough catch in traffic.

-- Helmholdt
Dillon Mitchell
Memphis (Tenn.) White Station
Mitchell is so smooth as a wide receiver that he can sometimes slide under the radar, but after reviewing the film from the Atlanta Rivals Camp, it was clear that Mitchell was among the event's top wide receivers. An accomplished basketball player as well, the Oregon commit has a nice combination of size, speed and athleticism that makes him a very difficult matchup. SEC programs are still pushing hard for Mitchell, but if he lands with the Ducks he will fit in very nicely to the school's offensive scheme.

-- Wommack
Amir Rasul
Coral Gables, Fla.
Rasul is one of the fastest players in the 2016 class, but he's shown that he's more than just a track speedster playing football. The Miami commit is more than just straight-line speed and has some serious elusiveness to his game.

-- Cassidy
Ahmmon Richards
Wellington, Fla.
Richards' length is his calling card, and it allows him to close in a hurry. His 6-foot-3 frame is extended by long arms and solid quickness. A prospect with size and speed in spades, Richards should see his offer list grow during his senior season.

-- Cassidy
T.J. Simmons
Pinson (Ala.) Clay
Simmons doesn't blow people away with one aspect of his game. He stands 6-foot-1 with better than average speed and reliable hands. The thing that makes Simmons a top prospect, however, is the fact that there doesn't seem to be a weakness in his game. The Alabama commit does everything right and has great upside because of his trajectory.

-- Cassidy
Khalil Tate
Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra
Tate is really an intriguing prospect. As a quarterback, the Arizona commit has improved his accuracy and control since his junior season and he's starting to convince us that he could be a big-time, playmaking quarterback in the Pac-12. He has also proven in recent months that he could move to wide receiver and be effective there as well. Whether it's playing quarterback or somewhere else on the offense, Tate is way too valuable so he had to move to four-star status.

-- Adam Gorney, West Region Analyst
Darryl Turner
Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha
Turner is one of the most explosive athletes in the country and he can play on either side of the ball. He projects best at running back or receiver and he showed that at the Richmond Rivals Camp. His quickness in and out of his brakes and good ball skills made it easy for quarterbacks to get him the ball on short or long routes. Defensively Turner could play as a cornerback or safety.

-- Adam Friedman, Mid-Atlantic Region Analyst
Rick Wells
Jacksonville (Fla.) Raines
Wells has looked great on the offseason 7-on-7 circuit and has some serious size to go along with his explosiveness. The Florida commit is not easily jammed at the line of scrimmage and has a knack for the spectacular catch as well. Wells is one of those players that brings a nice blend of strength, speed and agility.

-- Cassidy
Troy Warner
San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills
Warner bounced from a four-star down to a three but now he's back up to a four-star after looking really impressive at multiple 7-on-7 events this spring. The Oregon commit has excellent size to play cornerback and he can turn and run with any receiver. He's also good with his hands - even after the receiver catches the ball Warner is aggressive and tries to rip it out. He could sometimes break on the ball faster, but he's a quality corner who can shut down his side of the field.

-- Gorney
Bryson Young
Clovis (Calif.) Buchanan
Young is really impressive on film lining up at defensive end, beating offensive tackles and attacking players in the backfield. He's a legitimate 6-foot-5, he's super long and he has the frame to grow into a full-time DE or he can still play outside linebacker. What we liked about him, too, and you can't see this on film, is that he has no ego whatsoever. He works and works and works in practice to get better and really has the drive to be the best at his position.
