This is a very intriguing prospect who really grows on you the more you watch him. Looks great on the hoof -- long and athletic. Is capable of getting the ball out from various release points if needed. A pocket passer with dual-threat capability, if warranted. From an upside standpoint, Rudolph could be a real gem in this class. Has competitive qualities you like and mechanically he can be cleaned up and refined. Nice prospect.

Thomas is a well rounded back who would be higher up the board with more consistent production. While not elite in one particular facet, he can run inside and out and get the tough yards on his own and the ones that are blocked for him. With added bulk and continued skill set development, early playing time is a possibility in an every-down role.
Palelei brings outstanding receiving skills to the table. Very effective running the swing, screen and seam routes. A hands catcher with a burst after the catch and displays outstanding elusiveness and long speed. Possesses the running and receiving skills needed to play early at the BCS level of competition..
Hill is an explosive and sudden weapon with the ball in his hands and is a triple threat as a return man, receiver and running back. Lack of size will likely limit his duty and could be a durability concern as well. However, he is a playmaker as a bolt of lightning that can ignite big plays for the BCS level.

Brown has many quality traits and we see him as a BCS caliber prospect with slight speed limitations, but we feel he could not only be an outside player, but an inside slot as he shows toughness when working the middle of the field. He may not see significant, high-end BCS program attention, but will have his fair share of choices when it is all said and done.
Washington is a good prospect. His performance at the high school level should translate to the same type of production at the next level because of his size and skill set. He should be actively recruited by some of the better mid-level BCS programs and possibly even higher.
Frazier is a good-sized tight end who will contribute best as a blocker with further development. We don't see an immediate contributor at the next level as he will likely need at least a redshirt year, but can be an adequate receiver who with some work can use his size, strength and physical nature to best aid an offense as a blocker.
Mucha's height and athleticism should prove very effective at the BCS level of competition once bulk is added to his frame. Prior to competing for playing time at the next level some time and most likely a redshirt year will be necessary to grow physicaly while polishing technical skills.

Galeai has good potential but will need to re-develop his frame some and polish his technique. Shows awareness to pick up stunts and movement along the first and second level. Might need a redshirt year but has BCS level talent
