Brett Vinson is a late-blooming prospect who came on strong at the end of his junior year.
The wide receiver and defensive back out of Hampton (Va.) Phoebus helped the school to a 9-3 record as they reached the regional finals. He went on to post 29 catches for 475 yards and eight touchdowns.
"He's a great athlete, he plays both ways and runs really good routes," Phoebus head coach William Dee said. "He can catch the short ball and run after it, he's very good at quick screens."

Dee said that Vinson really came on in the second half of the season and that's where most of his statistics came from.
So far Vinson has an offer from Kent State, but Virginia and Virginia Tech are showing an interest in the prospect.
"He's not getting a ton of mail yet, because he just came out this year," he said. "But he's a Division I player."
Besides being a top football player, Vinson is also a great basketball player who averages 20 points a game.
