This story below will be on the February 7th issue of ESPN The Magazine.


On Feb. 2, Scouts Inc. will name the nation's top recruiting class. And we've learned a lot about some of the players. But which preps will shine brightest by the time they're college seniors (if they become seniors)? We asked our analysts to gaze into their blue-chip crystal balls and hand out the awards four years in advance. The envelopes please...

Heisman Trophy:
Jeff Driskel QB, Florida
Quick release, faster start. As Driskel's peers line up prom dates, the nation's No. 1 passer is already on campus, receiving tutelage from new Gators offensive coordinator Charlie Weis.

Isaiah Crowell, RB, undecided
Compact (5'11", 210) and hits top gear in a hurry.

Biletnikoff Award (Best Wide Receiver):
George Farmer, USC
Built like a young Dez Bryant, with a mean streak. "Farmer has all the tools and will benefit from having a great QB," says ESPN's Billy Tucker. Who's that QB? See: 2014 Unitas winner.

Charone Peake, Clemson
Tall, fast and can line up almost anywhere on the field.

Doak Walker Award (Best Running Back):
Malcolm Brown, Texas
Described by Scouts Inc. as a "load back who can handle lots of carries," Brown (2,596 yards in 2010) compares well with UT great Ricky Williams, a two-time Walker winner.

Aaron Green, Nebraska
Says ESPN's Tom Luginbill: "Near impossible to get a direct shot on."

Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award (Best Quarterback):
Max Wittek, USC
At California's Mater Dei High, he had to replace legend Matt Barkley. At USC, he'll have to replace ... Matt Barkley. But with a big arm and fearless approach, Wittek ought to be just fine in those shoes ... again.

Jerrard Randall, Oregon
Should be a perfect dual-threat fit for the Ducks offense.

Outland Trophy (Best Interior Lineman):
Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, undecided
The No. 3 overall prospect stands 6'7", weighs 325 and runs like a tight end. Best part about Kouandjio: He's a dominant block-finisher.

La'El Collins, OT, LSU
He's 6'5", 281 pounds and has the balance and nimbleness of a tightrope walker.

Lombardi Trophy (Best Lineman or Linebacker):
Jadeveon Clowney DE, Undecided
Our experts didn't need to confer: All agreed on Clowney. "No matter who he's faced," says's Jeremy Crabtree, "he can't be stopped."

Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
Even at 300 pounds, Johnson moves at fast-forward speed.
