National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell’s Three-Point Stance is here with some players who just missed the Farrell 25, the five most important linemen recruits left on the board for 2021 and the 10 instant impact prospects in the 2021 class.
1. PLAYERS THAT JUST MISSED THE CUT FOR THE FARRELL 25
I usually do a Farrell 50 each year when all conferences are playing and things are normal. This season is anything but normal, so instead I did a Farrell 25. I found it hard to leave some guys out, so here are a few players who just missed the cut.
LB Chazz Surratt, North Carolina— Surratt is the leader of the Tar Heel defense and will emerge as one of the best linebackers in the country this year.
2. THE FIVE MOST IMPORTANT UNCOMMITTED LINEMEN
Here are the five most important uncommitted linemen in the 2021 class and where I think each of their recruitment stands.
DE Korey Foreman — Foreman has been compared to Chase Young and has the ability to be a franchise player at the next level. I still have Georgia over LSU right now but it changes often and the Tigers have the recent momentum.
OG Bryce Foster — Foster is an absolute wrecking ball and will be a guard akin to Trey Smith or Wyatt Davis at the next level. I have the Sooners with a sizable lead here.
OT Tristan Leigh— I’ve changed my FutureCast to Oklahoma here after he’s visited both the Sooners and LSU. He will be the perfect combo with Foster.
OT Amarius Mims— Mims is an elite offensive tackle and while I like JC Latham’s upside a little more, Mims is a pure franchise left tackle. Georgia and Tennessee are in a tight battle and I still have the Bulldogs with a slight edge.
DT Maason Smith — The best defensive tackle in this class by far will be hard to get out of Louisiana so I have him to LSU for now. The question is, will he be a factor for his friend Foreman?
3. TEN INSTANT IMPACT 2021 COMMITMENTS
Finally I’m listing the instant impact prospects in the 2021 class as of right now. This could change, but I like these 10 and how they are positioned with their future programs.
