Plainfield South (Ill.) junior linebacker Clifton Garrett shows why he's an early four-star prospect with multiple BCS offers in his hard hitting highlight tape from this year.

Clifton Garrett profile

Garrett has one of the better tapes you'll see from a class of 2014 prospect. He leaps off the screen because he plays fast, plays hard, and while this term is used quite a bit, he actually hits like a truck. There is no hesitation in his game and he does a great job of timing snap counts and timing the blitz. Pass coverage is the one part of his game he can continue to work on. That said, you won't find many better hitters and run stoppers in this class. He has a knack for taking on blockers and shedding and finding the football and ball carriers who have met up with him can attest to what kind of striker he is. He has multiple BCS offers and it is easy to see why.
