#1Derrick GreenRB
Richmond, VAHermitage

One of the more heralded players on the camp and combine circuit from the Class of 2013 has been Hermitage High School running back Derrick Green, whose 5-foot-10, 223-pound rippling frame gives him the look of a run-stuffing middle linebacker but his 4.48 forty speed and 31-inch vertical allow him to be the type of back who can make defenders miss or punish them if they get between him and the goal line.

#2Jonathan AllenDE
Ashburn, VAStone Bridge

This past April Allen attended and received the following evaluation "Hands down the event's most dominant pass rusher. Is one of the nation's best 2013 prospects. Is cat quick coming off the edge with an arsenal of moves. Can bull-rush, swim, rip and spin. Could not be blocked. His first step is simply scary. Must continue to develop." Originally from Alabama, it came as no surprise when he committed to the defending national champs.

#3Taquan MizzellRB
Virginia Beach, VABayside

VirgniaPreps.com staffers Rod Johnson and Matthew Hatfield said of Mizell following the Junior Rank Camp in May: "Shifty and now powerful, Mizzell will be hard to wrap up for opponents in the Beach District this year. Look for the Marlins to ride him as much as possible in their effort to repeat as Eastern Region D-6 Champions." Mizzell has continued to impress on the national stage at various 7-on-7's and other events, and his ranking has continued to climb as well.

#4E.J. Levenberry Jr.LB
Woodbridge, VAC. D. Hylton

A transfer from DeMatha, Levenberry accumulated over a dozen offers before committing to Florida State. After the Virginia VTO event Mike Farrell wrote the following: "Levenberry has a long frame and uses it to help close on smaller backs quicker opponents. He is at his best when his first step is forward and when he can get his long arms on his opponent to knock them off their route, but he is athletic and quick enough to make up for false steps and get back into the play. His lateral ability is impressive as well as he moves effortlessly from side to side and can disrupt passing lanes with his size and anticipation. Levenberry is also a smart, heady player who picks things up quickly."

#5Ryan BurnsQB
Ashburn, VAStone Bridge

Received the following review this past spring when he attended an Elite 11 event: "You could make a case that Burns, a year away from being eligible for the Elite 11, was the most consistent and best quarterback on the day. Not only does he have great size and a strong arm, his release is excellent and compact and he spun the ball consistently all day. He was at his best on outs and intermediate passes where his arm strength shines, but he also showed good touch on his long balls. The only time he struggled was on the rare occasion he was asked to move around and throw outside the pocket, but even then he was solid. Burns' upside is very impressive and it's puzzling why his only offer continues to be from Boston College."

#6Donta WilkinsDT
Dumfries, VAPotomac Senior

The 6-foot-3, 315-pound tackle occupies a lot of blockers and can really disrupt things in the running game up the middle. He received early offers from Virginia, NC State and Boston College and then after a number of other schools, including two more offers from Penn State and Miami, and selected the University of Virginia in June following a visit to Charlottesville.

#7Christian HackenbergQB
Fork Union, VAFork Union Military Academy

Class of 2013 quarterback Christian Hackenberg is one of the state's top senior prospects.

#8Wyatt TellerDE
Bealeton, VALiberty

Five schools are still in play for the Rivals100 prospect, ranked the No. 7 strongside defensive end in the nation. "I have a solid five in mind," Teller said. "It's later in the process so the five that are basically in there are Virginia, of course, along with Virginia Tech, Clemson, Michigan and Oregon.

4 stars6'4"264Virginia Tech
#9Bucky HodgesQB
Virginia Beach, VASalem

Contrary to his listing, Hodges doesn't consider himself a pro-style quarterback. "I'm a dual-threat quarterback and I'm faster than most quarterbacks," Hodges said. "I can throw too, so I'm a true dual-threat quarterback. I just wanna keep on getting better. I need to get faster and then just try to get bigger. Then, I wanna get my arm stronger."

#10Holland FisherDB
Midlothian, VAManchester

As a sophomore Fisher was a second team all-metro and first team all-district honors after racking up 95 tackles, 11 for loss, six sacks, five pass deflections and four forced fumbles as a sophomore. He also had 10 receptions for 215-yards and four touchdowns on offense. Has been a Hokie fan all of his life, so it came as no surprise when he pulled the trigger for VT on February 18th.

#11Matt RolinLB
Ashburn, VABriar Woods

One of the region's top linebacker prospects, Rolin's older brother plays (walk-on) at Virginia Tech. As a junior Rolin posted 105 tackles, 20 for loss, 10 sacks, two forced fumbles, two interceptions and eight pass deflections while earning first team all-district, region and state honors. After committing to South Carolina, Rolin is now concentrating on leading Briar Woods to the school's third straight D-4 state title.

#12Tim HarrisDB
Richmond, VAVarina

Will Garlick wrote "He was my MVP at the NUC in Hampton by posting excellent scores and showcasing his one-on-one coverage skills." Rod Johnson on Harris: "A University of Virginia commit, he is as good as any cornerback in the state and is capable of being a special player not only at the high school level but also at the collegiate level. Combining impressive length with the ability to flip his hips quickly and a strong competitive nature, Harris changes offensive approaches with his ability to take away nearly half the field."

#13Doug RandolphLB
Richmond, VAWoodberry Forest School

An early commit to Stanford, Randolph fell under the radar despite technically being a 2012 recruit until reclassifying for the 2013 class upon his admission this fall to Woodberry Forest School. As far as his commitment, "I guess I'm still keeping the door open but I'm pretty set on Stanford," Randolph said. "I never really wavered that much in my commitment. I stayed committed the whole time and I made that clear."

#14Anthony ShegogDB
Stafford, VANorth Stafford

Shegog was named to the VirginiaPreps.com All-State Underclassmen team and to the site's All-Northwest Region team. Shegog's stat line included 30 catches for 450 yards and eight touchdowns, and over 300 yards rushing, including another four touchdowns. Coach Joe Mangano told us "Shegog is a very big kid with D-I breakaway speed. He had seven plays this year go for 40 yards or more. An explosive player."

#15Corwin CutlerQB
Virginia Beach, VAOcean Lakes

In 2011, Cutler transferred from Indian River to Ocean Lakes. He helped lead the Dolphins to an 8-3 overall record and berth in the Eastern Region Division 6 playoffs. As a junior, Cutler completed 114 of 206 passes for 1703 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions. This summer Cutlers drawn rave reviews at several 7-on-7 events and combines. He was the MVP at the quarterback position at the VTO Sports event in Richmond and had a lot of observers wondering why he wasn't more highly rated after his performance at the NLA 7-on in Brooklyn. Could be a steal for Mike London and the Cavaliers.

#16Cequan JeffersonATH
Richmond, VAHenrico

Virginia Tech was the first, and probably would not have been the last to offer the Central Region standout from Henrico if he had not committed to the Hokies on February 18th. As a junior he had eight interceptions, 35 tackles and 14 pass break-ups. On offense he caught 25 passes and scored six touchdowns.

#17Braxton PfaffOL
Lynchburg, VALiberty Christian Academy

The 6-foot-4, 290-pounder picked Virginia Tech over West Virginia, Virginia. A dominating run blocker, Pfaff fits the bill size-wise for the college game and seems to play with a bit of a mean streak, which is nice. Farrell commented after the Richmond VTO event this spring "Pfaff has good size and adjusted well as the camp went along. You could tell this was the best competition he's faced so far and it was good to see him get stronger as he got used to the speed and power."

#18Daniel ReidATH
Chester, VAThomas Dale

Reid is getting closer to making his college commitment and right now, it looks like a two-team race between South Florida and Virginia Tech. The 6-foot-0, 202-pound running back holds offers six offers but indications are that the in-state Hokies lead the field for his commitment with the Bulls from South Florida in the running as the Knights' standout has family in the Tampa area.

#19Zack JonesWR
Chesapeake, VAOscar Smith

Brother of former Oscar Smith standout and a starting running back at Virginia, Perry Jones, Zack has no trouble keeping us with older brother, with his 4.5 40 speed. Matthew Hatfield says "Jones gets great separation from his defender and gets open behind the secondary constantly. His route running is probably underrated as is his speed. Jones, the UVA commit who was a monster in last year's playoff run, gets vertical in a hurry and doesn't drop anything in his vicinity."

Stafford, VAMountain View

Hamilton has been accumulating an impressive offer list that includes Virginia, Virginia Tech, East Carolina, Liberty and more than ten more!. Also a standout basketball player, Hamilton had 73 catches for 1144 yards and 10 touchdown catches during his junior season for Mountain View.

#22Deon NewsomeATH
Hampton, VAHampton

Newsome decided to continue a family tradition when he committed to Virginia Tech back in May. "He's just a great athlete with a big smile on his face," Hampton coach Mike Smith said. "He has a great outlook on life and is just a tremendous kid, good student. I don't know what you could say that wouldn't be a tribute to him as being a super, great kid."

#23David PrinceATH
Roanoke, VAPatrick Henry

As a junior, Prince led the Patriots to a 7-3 record behind an offense that averaged nearly 28 points per contest as he connected on 70 of 121 passes for 1,005 yards and nine touchdowns adding another 725 yards rushing with five more scores. Though he played quarterback for Patrick Henry, the 6-foot-0, 175-pounder projects as a wide receiver or defensive back at the college level.

#24Charles ClarkDB
Suffolk, VAKings Fork

Clark was watched closely for a few years by BCS-level schools. In April, Clark made the trip to Blacksburg to take in Virginia Tech's spring game and walked away the first of six verbal commitments on a banner recruiting day for Coach Frank Beamer and the Hokies. Despite the Bulldogs finishing with a 2-8 record in 2011, Clark was named the Southeastern District Defensive Player of the Year. Opponents often threw away from him as he took away one side of the field. On defense, Clark ended up with 58 tackles, five fumble recoveries and four pass breakups.

#25Oren BurksLB
Lorton, VASouth County

This past fall Burks totaled 97 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and nine quarterback hurries on defense. His performances have caught the attention of a number of ACC and Big East schools. Boston College and Virginia Tech might be the early leaders to land Burks.

Woodbridge, VAWoodbridge Senior

Despite committing to Duke in March, several colleges are still trying to get into the hunt for the services of three-star defensive back Evrett Edwards from Woodbridge High School as last week Penn State and Clemson became the eleventh and twelth schools to offer the Class of 2013 Viking a scholarship. The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder also holds offers from East Carolina, Boston College, Illinois, Northwestern, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Wake Forest and West Virginia. With 4.4 speed and a 3.8 grade point average, the recruitment of Edwards figures to last right up until signing day in February
