Here’s an inside look at the roster, position-by-position.
Zach Allen, Temple (Texas) High (Committed to Syracuse) – In a very strong year in the state of Texas for quarterbacks the No. 53 passer in the country is sometimes a forgotten man. He is very dangerous with his legs as well.
Tyler Cogswell, Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage – The No. 50 pro-style quarterback in the country was recently dropped by Arkansas when new head coach Bret Bielema was hired and will be looking to get his name out there this week.
Danny Etling. Terre Haute (Ind.) South Vigo (Committed to Purdue) – The Boilermaker pledge is a composite four-star prospect and will try to make the jump in the 247Sports rankings as well.
Virginia Tech commit Bucky Hodges, the nation's second-ranked dual-threat quarterback prospect, is the highest-rated signal caller in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl according to 247Sports.
Damion Hobbs, Cedar Hill (Texas) High (Committed to Arkansas State): The nation’s No. 59 athlete committed to the Red Wolves over a number of other programs because of the opportunity to play quarterback.
Bucky Hodges, Virginia Beach (Va.) Salem (Committed to Virginia Tech) – The nation’s No. 2 dual-threat quarterback and No. 71 overall prospect looks to be the next in line of standout Hokies’ passers.
Trent Hosick, Kansas City (Mo.) Staley (Committed to Missouri) – The No. 15 dual-threat quarterback is seen by many as likely to play safety or wide receiver at Mizzou so he will be looking to prove he belongs in the passer rankings.
Chase Abbington, St. Peters (Mo.) Fort Zumwalt South (Missouri commit) – Though likely to play safety or linebacker in college, the No. 92 overall prospect in the country ran for close to 3,000 yards in his high school career.
Kaleb Blanchard, Denham Springs (La.) High – The No. 42 overall running back in the country recently de-committed from Arkansas and has a top three of LSU, TCU and Tennessee.
Pierre Cormier, San Diego (Calif.) Madison (Committed to Arizona) – The four-star prospect and No. 232 overall player in the country is a true all-purpose back as he is dangerous as receiver out of the backfield or in the slot.
Mark Dodson, Memphis (Tenn.) Whitehaven (Committed to Ole Miss) – The four-star prospect and No. 22 running back is a midterm graduate and will be in Oxford for spring football. He ran for over 3,000 yards as a senior.
South Carolina commit Pharoh Cooper was the Offensive Most Valuable Player of the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas earlier this month.
Wayne Gallman, Loganville (Ga.) Grayson (Committed to Clemson) – The No. 19 athlete and No. 217 was once thought to be a package deal to Clemson with his teammate and the No. 1 prospect in the country Robert Nkemdiche.
Keyante Green, McDonough (Ga.) Eagle’s Landing (Committed to Purdue) – The No. 81 running back prospect in the country was a longtime UCLA pledge before switching to the Boilermakers.
Kennard Swanson, Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson – The No. 3 fullback in the country is a former LSU pledge. He is also a very good defensive lineman and was recruited by other schools to play on that side of the ball. Florida is the top contender for him these days.
Marcell Ateman, Wylie (Texas) East (Committed to Oklahoma State) – The No. 53 overall wide receiver is one of three very good prospects at the position in the Oklahoma State class and has a chance to play early.
Victor Bolden, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos (Committed to Oregon State) – The No. 163 wide receiver in the country is dangerous from the slot. He is a solid pledge to the Beavers.
Carlos Burse, Alpharetta (Ga.) High (Committed to Vanderbilt) – The No. 58 wide receiver is a big target at 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds. He put up solid numbers as a senior.
Pharoh Cooper, Havelock (N.C.) High (Committed to South Carolina) – The No. 80 athlete in the country is fresh off an Offensive MVP performance in the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.
Four-star Clemson commit Mike Williams is the No. 31 wide receiver prospect in the 2013 class according to 247Sports.

Mossi Johnson, Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw (Committed to UCLA) – The No. 57 prospect in California was a virtual unknown until he switched to receiver this summer and dominated on the camp circuit.
Kyrion Parker, Manvel (Texas) High (Committed to Texas A&M) – The four-star prospect and No. 39 receiver missed almost all his junior year with an injury but bounced back in a big way this fall.
Camion Patrick, Knoxville (Tenn.) West – Because of academics, the one-time Tennessee pledge is headed to East Mississippi C.C. for the next couple of years before having the chance to play for a four-year school.
Stanvon Taylor, Tulsa (Okla.) East Central (Committed to Oklahoma) - The Gatorade Oklahoma Player of the Year is a standout on both sides of the ball and, even though he is ranked as the No. 7 wide receiver and No. 76 overall prospect, he could end up on the defensive side of the ball in Norman.
Dominic Walker, Orlando (Fla.) Evans – The nation’s No. 140 wide receiver de-committed from Vanderbilt during the season and is now looking strongly at Nebraska and Cincinnati.
Mike Williams, Santee (S.C.) Lake Marion (Committed to Clemson) – The four-star prospect and No. 31 wide receiver was impressive at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas as a big target.
Taj Williams, Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln – The four-star wide receiver could also play safety in college. His main schools of interest are Alabama, Florida State, Louisville, South Carolina and Washington State.
Former Texas tight end commit Durham Smythe could be Stanford-bound.
Mitch Parsons, Parker (Colo.) Chaparral – The one-time Colorado commit opened things up during the season. The No. 18 tight end in the country has Ole Miss on top but also visited Cal and Washington and has one planned to Vanderbilt.
Deondre Skinner, Patterson (La.) High (Committed to Arkansas) – The No. 27 tight end in the country, Patterson is a soft Arkansas commit as in-state LSU offered him after camp over the summer.
Durham Smythe, Belton (Texas) High – The No. 6 tight end and No. 175 overall prospect in the country recently decommitted from Texas. Stanford is thought to be the favorite but Baylor, Florida and Notre Dame are also in the mix.
Mack Weaver, Memphis (Tenn.) Harding Academy (Committed to Vanderbilt) – The No. 19 weakside defensive end will play tight end this week. He starred on both sides of the ball for Harding Academy.
Caleb Benenoch, Katy (Texas) Seven Lakes (Committed to UCLA) – The mammoth guard is ranked as the No. 25 player in the country at his position. Once a Michigan State commitment, he saw his stock soar over the summer and fall before recently pledging to UCLA.
Rob Boyd, Vian (Okla.) High (Committed to Tulsa) – The No. 45 offensive guard in the country and No. 10 player in the state of Oklahoma could end up being a big-time steal for the Golden Hurricane.
Baylen Brown, San Antonio (Texas) O’Connor (Committed to Texas Tech) – The No. 16 offensive guard in the country has an incredible mean streak on the field. He has remained solidly committed to Texas Tech despite the coaching change.
Cameron Dillard, Canton (Mich.) High (Committed to Florida) – The No. 22 offensive guard in the country is also versatile enough to play center.
Jeremi Hall, Atlanta (Ga.) Tri-Cities (Committed to Georgia Tech) – The undersized offensive tackle will be looking to prove that he should be ranked higher than No. 134 at his position.
Cory Helms, Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton (Committed to Wake Forest) – The No. 17 center in the country has remained a solid Demon Deacon pledge since committing in early June.
Jackson Keeler, Barrington (Ill.) High (Committed to Wisconsin) – The tall, lanky prospect is the No. 59 offensive tackle in the country and is the type of player Wisconsin had made a living off of recruiting in recent years.
Tyler Lancaster, Plainfield (Ill.) High (Committed to Northwestern) – The Wildcats got a steal when they convinced the nation’s No. 3 center and No. 163 overall prospect to stay in state.
Brad North, Allen (Texas) High (Committed to Northwestern) – The No. 39 offensive guard in the country played out of position at tackle a year ago but impressed on the camp circuit this summer. He could also play center if needed.
Lovell Peterson, Dayton (Ohio) Wayne – The No. 7 center in the country could also see some time this week at defensive tackle. He recently visited Kentucky and has the Wildcats on top.
Maurice Porter, Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall (Committed to Texas Tech) – The No. 14 offensive tackle and No. 187 overall prospect in the country has only been playing football for a couple of years after moving to Texas from Indiana.
R.J. Prince, Albemarle (N.C.) High (Committed to North Carolina) – The No. 35 offensive tackle in the country is also one of the tallest players at the position in the country. He committed to the Tar Heels all the way back in February.
Dan Skipper, Arvada (Colo.) Ralston Valley (Committed to Tennessee) – The No. 53 offensive tackle in the country comes in at a reported 6-foot-10. Will he still be able to move well at that height?
Tyler Tezeno, Spring (Texas) Klein Collins (Committed to West Virginia) – The No. 17 offensive guard in the country is a bit undersized but is strong as an ox. He could also possibly see time as a defensive tackle when he arrives in Morgantown.
Ja’Braylin Thomas, Weimar (Texas) High (Committed to Houston) – The No. 63 offensive tackle in the country is a huge kid playing for a small-town team. It will be interesting to see him go against players his size all week.

Ishmael Wilson, Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne (Committed to Texas A&M) – The No. 13 offensive tackle and No. 154 overall prospect in the country is part of a very good Aggie class.
Andrew Billings, Waco (Texas) High – An all-state selection on both sides of the ball as a senior, the nation’s No. 16 defensive tackle and No. 202 overall prospect has one of the quickest first steps in the country. He has a top two of Baylor and Texas with TCU currently in third.
Jamone Boyd, Lee’s Summit (Mo.) West (Committed to Kansas State) – The No. 26 strongside defensive end has lots of potential if he can put things together both on and off the field.

David Johnson, Lithonia (Ga.) High (Committed to South Carolina) – The No. 17 weakside defensive end will either be a quick, undersized pass rusher for the Gamecocks or a huge inside linebacker.
Nazair Jones, Roanoke Rapids (N.C.) High (Committed to North Carolina) – The four-star prospect and No. 17 strongside defensive end could also possibly end up on the interior in Chapel Hill.
David Kenney, Indianapolis (Ind.) Pike (Committed to Indiana) – The No. 28 weakside defensive end is another player that could also possibly be a big linebacker in college.
Tevin Lawson, Denham Springs (La.) High (Committed to LSU) – The two-way standout is ranked as the No. 42 defensive tackle. He was somewhat of an unknown until the in-state Tigers made him one of their first offers in the spring.
Dimarya Mixon, Mesquite (Texas) West Mesquite (Committed to Missouri) – The one-time Arizona State pledge is relatively new to football and has improved every year. The No. 36 defensive tackle plays end in high school and might do so at Mizzou as well.
Lewis Neal, Wilson (N.C.) Hunt (Committed to LSU) – The No. 38 weakside defensive end is definitely undersized but LSU has done well recently with prospects just like him.
Michael Patterson, Winnfield (La.) High (Committed to LSU) – The No. 21 weakside defensive end has made a case for a fourth star but it will be interesting to see how he fares against big offensive linemen.
De’Asian Richardson, Orange Park (Fla.) First Coast (Committed to West Virginia) – The No. 25 strongside defensive end is a huge prospect and could end up playing as a quick three-technique tackle for West Virginia.

Vincent Taylor, San Antonio (Texas) Madison (Committed to Oklahoma State) – A first-team all-state pick as a senior, the four-star prospect and No. 22 defensive tackle could play early in Stillwater.
Hardreck Walker, Spring (Texas) Westfield (Committed to Texas A&M) – The four-star prospect and No. 23 defensive tackle has a strong lower body that enables him to be very good holding his ground against the run.
Jay Woods, Jackson (Ga.) High (Committed to Vanderbilt) – The No. 26 defensive tackle in the country proved to be a good pass rusher from the interior, compiling 11 sacks as a senior.
Jeremy Benjamin, Hollywood (Fla.) McArthur – The No. 31 outside linebacker prospect has offers from several schools but FIU looks likely to keep him very close to home.
