Minnesota's High School Class of 2015 Top 20 Football Players to Watch

By VAmes

Cretin-Derham Hall DE Jashon Cornell (6’3 240) is not only the top player in the state, but will be one of the top players in the nation with 20 BCS offers.

With 19 different players holding D1 football offers out to rising seniors from the Class of 2014, I thought I would shift gears and complete the next review of the Class of 2015 top players with D1 potential.  I based the following list on top performers in the stats column during their sophomore year playing varsity, post season honors, and height weight.  Needless to say Cretin-Derham Hall DE Jashon Cornell (6’3 240) is not only the top player in the state, but will be one of the top players in the nation with 20 BCS offers.  However following Jashon, there are a number of top players that have solid height/weight to play at the next level and had very solid seasons on the gridiron.  Many have confirmed that they will be attending the Gopher junior elite camp and other D1 football camps this summer.  It will be interesting to see who walks away with offers following their performance.

Jashon Cornell, 6’3 240, DE, Cretin-Derham Hall (6A) -  Has received offers from Minnesota, Notre Dame, Ohio State, USC, Florida, Missouri, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Stanford, Iowa, Penn State, Cal, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, and Vanderbilt. In 9 games, had 47 tackles (39 solo), 14 sacks, 26 TFL, 20 QB Hurries, 3 forced fumbles, and 1 blocked field goal.
