Rivals.com Junior All-America Team

QB: Jimmy Clausen
6-3, 200, Westlake Village (Calif.)
Oaks Christian
The top junior in the country, his family says he is already better than Casey and Rick were in college.

DE: Ben Martin
6-5, 220, Cincinnati (Ohio)
LaSalle
The top Ohioan in '07, Martin has a college-ready body and more than enough speed.

RB: Noel Devine
5-8, 175, North Fort Myers (Fla.)
North Fort Myers
The most explosive high school running back on film in the country, hands down.

DE: Allen Bailey
6-3, 200, Darien (Ga.)
McIntosh Academy
The size, speed and tenacity of Bailey make him among Georgia's most coveted.

RB: Caleb King
5-11, 186, Lilburn (Ga.)
Parkview
Looks like an SEC running back on film and plays for Georgia's best high school program.

DT: John Brown
6-2, 290, Lakeland (Fla.)
Lakeland
Dominating defensive tackle uses his quick first step to explode off the line.

WR: Deonte Thompson
6-0, 180, Bell Glade (Fla.)
Glades Central
An electric player with high-end speed. Can take it the distance every time he touches the ball.

DT: Marvin Austin
6-3, 299, Washington (D.C.)
Coolidge
Super quick for his size with a rare size/agility combination.

WR: Arrelious Benn
6-1, 208, Washington (D.C.)
Dunbar
Big wideout with good speed has the ability to dominant in the red zone.

LB: Marc Tyler
6-0, 215, Westlake Village (Calif.)
Oaks Christian
Tyler could be a star running back in college, too, but he couldn't be left off this list – he's that good.

TE: Aaron Hernandez
6-4, 225, Bristol (Conn.)
Central
Record-setting tight end has the speed and hands to line up wide at receiver.

LB: Chris Galippo
6-3, 232, Anaheim (Calif.)
Servite
Committed to Southern Cal yesterday, shortly after Trojan coach Pete Carroll offered him a scholarship. Considered a true middle 'backer.

OL: Josh Oglesby
6-7, 315, Milwaukee (Wis.)
St. Francis
Arguably the top offensive lineman in the class of '07 and could be the top prospect in the Midwest.

LB: Steve Paskorz
6-0, 208, Pittsburgh (Pa.)
Hampton
Hard-hitting defender is next great linebacker out of Pennsylvania.

OL: Lee Ziemba
6-7, 295, Rogers (Ark.)
Rogers
Has been the top lineman in the Natural State since his sophomore year in high school.

DB: Ronald Johnson
6-0, 177, Muskegon (Mich.)
Muskegon
When he's healthy, some think Johnson could be a serious candidate for the No. 1 spot.

OL: Tray Allen
6-4, 285, Grand Prairie (Texas)
South
Allen is highly-impressive offensive lineman that will be one of Texas' best in 2007.

DB: Gary Gray
5-11, 170, Columbia (S.C.)
Richland Northeast
Several college coaches and recruiters believe he's one of the top cornerbacks in the nation.

OL: Anthony Davis
6-6, 305, Piscatawy (N.J.)
Piscataway
Massive lineman reminds some coaches and analysts of Eugene Monroe.

DB: Dionte Allen
6-0, 175, Orchard Lake (Mich.)
St. Mary's
Allen has extremely fluid hips and can close on a football like no other high schooler in the nation.

OL: Tanner Strickland
6-4, 315, Nashville (Ga.)
Berrien County
Excellent technique. Early Georgia commit is polished for a high school offensive lineman.

DB: Eric Berry
6-0, 180, Atlanta (Ga.)
Creekside
Summer camp standout absolutely blanketed receivers in one-on-one drills last year.

ATH: Joe McKnight
5-11, 180, River Ridge (La.)
John Curtis
Versatile athlete is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.

ATH: John Chiles
6-2, 190, Mansfield (Texas)
Summit
Though playing quarterback, Chiles is as athletic as they come. Could be a serious receiving threat.

When will all the focus turn to 07' on Rivals and Scout? A couple weeks, a month?
Thanks.

The reason I ask is because I don't see an 07' offers list on Rivals or Scout for the Irish.

Unfortunately I don't have the link, but I saw some film of Devine and the guy is ridiculously talented. I can completely see the comparisons to Reggie Bush, but unlike Reggie Bush, Devine does not have his head screwed on straight. He's had some serious off the field issues, and if I were a coach I wouldn't go near the kid. Trouble waiting to happen IMO.

Devine does not appear to be on ND's radar currently.

I see 10 guys on this list I'd really push hard for.

Clausen, Martin, Austin, Benn, Tyler, Oglesby, Paskorz, Gray, Davis and Dionte Allen.

I believe only Davis doesn't have an offer from ND yet.

5'8" isn't bad for a running back. Lower center of gravity and if he is as quick as advertised, he should be Barry Sanders like.

Bush getting listed at 5-11 or 6-0 is generous from what they say. Speed and power make up for height.

What are your guys thoughts on Steve Paskorz? Seemed to enjoy Junior day. Pair him up with Smith and Richardson. Deadly LB Unit for a years.

Seems like a hybrid safety/linebacker type. Personally, I like those kind of LB. They don't need to be 240 lbs. I'll take a college LB that is a solid 220-225 and has speed. Speed is the most important thing.
