Dayes led Broward County in rushing this year with 1,878 yards on 266 carries and 28 touchdowns. The three-star prospect took his team to the Class 8A state championship this fall. The 5-foot-10, 195-pounder can run through you or around you. He has a nice burst and vision while being patient setting up blocks. New Wolfpack head coach Dave DoerenClick Here to view this Link. is getting a quality back who should be an All-ACC performer during his career in Raleigh.
8. WR Eddie Jackson, Lauderdale Lakes (Fla.) Boyd Anderson

After missing his junior season because of academic eligibility issues, Jackson more than made up for it with a stellar senior year. The two-way star hauled in 37 passes for 792 yards and 12 scores while adding a pair of interception-return touchdowns. He also returned four kicks for touchdowns while leading the Cobras to a second-round Class 7A playoff berth. Jackson will line up on the defensive side of the ball, but don't be surprised if he gets a chance at wideout. He is an dynamic playmaker with the ball in his hands.
