Free Rivals - Rivals100: Making big moves
Fort Valley (Ga.) Peach County wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (Clemson), Cleveland Heights, Ohio wide receiver Shelton Gibson and Seffner (Fla.) Armwood wide receiver Alvin Bailey also made nice jumps, showing that while this isn't a top-heavy year at their position, it is a deep one.
"Gibson was a ghost all offseason until he showed up at Ohio State's Friday Night Lights event in late July," Helmholdt said. "It was apparent there that he had not spent the entire offseason on the couch. Gibson came in thicker and stronger than we last saw him in the fall. It was his speed that was truly eye-catching, though. He was so fast down the field that the quarterbacks at the event underthrew him all night long and never were able to adjust to his speed."

While eight new prospects earned their coveted fifth star, three fell from the ranks. Trotwood (Ohio) Trotwood-Madison cornerback Cameron Burrows, Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha running back Thomas Tyner and Whitewright, Texas quarterback Tyrone Swoopes all dropped down to four-star status.
"Burrows was outstanding last fall while leading his team to a state title. He played fluidly and with outstanding athleticism for his size. This offseason, however, we saw a combination of low effort and a loss of fluidity from the 6-foot, 200-plus pound defensive back," Helmholdt said. "A player his size has to stay fluid through the hips to stay with elite wide receivers. By the time he showed up at Gridiron Kings in late July, he was really struggling and gave up a ton of completions."
Free Rivals - Southeast Region: Six to watch
1. DL Joey Bosa, 6-foot-5, 270 pounds, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas: Bosa, a four-star defensive, had a productive junior season recording 52 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, and eight sacks. However, the Ohio State commit missed some time last season. That included a 27-20 overtime loss to Miramar (Fla.) that snapped the school's 19-game win streak.
Bosa is one of the most athletic defensive linemen in this year's class. He offers scheme versatility, which allows him to line up inside in addition to his normal end spot. The talented run-stopper spent the summer taking unofficial visits and didn't attend any of the elite summer events. He missed an opportunity to measure himself against some of the premier offensive linemen on the national scene. Look for him to post bigger numbers if he can stay healthy during his senior campaign.
