Top 5 Uncommited Prospects from Virginia

We recently assigned our Senior Football Editor Rod Johnson two projects. First, identify the Top 5 Uncommitted Prospects that are not in the VirginiaPreps.com Class of 2012 Top 25 Prospect Ranking. Second we asked Rod to pick out the Top Five Sleepers from the Class of 2012.

Who is Rod Johnson and why is he such an authority on these topics? Rod joined the VirginiaPreps staff in 2002 when he moved to the Tidewater area from Ohio that year. He began as a staff writer before rising to his current level as the site's senior football editor where he has been responsible for coverage of recruiting, game recaps, rankings, and general interest stories from around the Commonwealth. Rod attends camps, combines, practices and games at various venues all around the state and region. He talks to college and high school coaches on a regular basis and probably views more film on high school prospects from Virginia than anyone else.

Top 5 Uncommitted outside of Top 25 :

1) Romond DeLoatch, Phoebus: No one doubts DeLoatch as a big time prospect, and he scored a 89.37 SPARQ score this spring. College coaches say he may need to improve his scores in the classroom in order to qualify immediately. Marshall and Temple have already offered and a number of other schools appear to be close. He has indicated that visits to Florida State and East Carolina are coming up. The 6-foot-4, 213-pound wide receiver makes for an excellent target at wide receiver and he should be able to put up some gaudy stats this fall for the Phoebus Phantoms, who are once again ranked among the State's top teams.
