"The state of Alabama has had elite cornerbacks come through it seemingly every cycle, and 2025 begins with Offord. He is a bigger, longer player who converted from wide receiver and hasn’t looked back. He’ll still dabble with the ball in his hands and makes big plays along the way, but he has also settled as an aggressive cornerback in the last year or so.

"Offord can win with length at the line of scrimmage but also has enough speed and savvy to win at the second and third level as well. As he continues to hone in on his technique in man coverage, Offord has a chance to challenge for the top cornerback projection in the entire class."John Garcia Jr., national recruiting analyst


"We almost made this move after his sophomore season and subsequent dominance last offseason, but Justus Terry followed it up with another strong campaign on Friday nights en route to a state championship appearance. He gets the nod as one of the most physically imposing interior defenders in the class of 2025, with immense power to pair with better-than-expected athleticism.

"The maturity in Terry’s frame is matched by his motor and versatility at the prep level, where he can win inside and out. The new five-star is built like recent Georgia great Jalen Carter, even possessing some of the same physical traits at the same stage — only a bigger version at the end of his junior season." – Garcia



"Fasusi has all the tools to be a special offensive tackle in college and beyond. There's so much to like but what stands out most is that he isn't maxed out from a physical standpoint. At 6-foot-5 and 284 pounds, Fasusi could still eclipse 300 pounds and have no problem and that's probably what will happen in the coming years.

"What stands out most about Fasusi is that he's incredibly athletic at the offensive tackle spot with almost no bad weight and a physical presence where he doesn't back down from aggression. He asserts himself at all times and he has unique athleticism that really makes him special.

"Oklahoma and Texas are at the front of his recruitment but Ohio State and many others are within striking distance as the Lewisville, Texas, standout is slowly working through his recruitment to find the best fit. It would not be a surprise to anyone if he was playing in the SEC for the Sooners or the Longhorns." – Adam Gorney, national recruiting director
