Star of the Class
Jonathan Stewart RB 5-11 225 Lacey (Timberline) Wash.
Few prospects in the Northwest have attracted the attention to the magnitude of Washington’s all-time rushing leader but fewer have ever packaged the speed and power together that led ESPN.com to consider him the No. 2 prep recruit in the country. The Seattle Times went so far as to rank him as the state’s fifth-greatest running back of all time. (Ironically, former Oregon great Bobby Moore -- i.e. Ahmad Rashad -- was ranked No. 4 in Washington history.) Accumulated 7,755 yards rushing and 95 touchdowns in his career that witnessed him eclipsing the 1,000-yard barrier in each of his four high school seasons. Rushed for 2,301 yards and 32 scores his final year -- averaging 11.3 yards per carry -- in addition to returning one of three punts 91 yards into the end zone
Instant Impact Players

James Finley WR 6-3 200 Los Angeles (Manual Arts) Ca.
Originally signing a letter of intent with Oregon in 2003, was ranked among the nation’s top 10 junior college wide receivers following the 2004 season by SuperPrep as well as 32nd in the country among JC prospects encompassing all positions. Yet College Football News tabbed him nationally as the sixth-best junior college receiver and 15th-best overall recruit. Ranked seventh in California in receptions per game as a sophomore (6.4 avg.) and 11th in yards per game (100.8 avg.), hauling in seven touchdowns to go along with his 64 catches and 1,008 receiving yards. Tarters finished third in the California Community College Football Conference in passing offense (333.4 avg.) and ninth in total offense (439.3 avg.) despite posting a 4-6 record a year ago

Nick Reed DL 6-3 245 Trabuco Canyon (Miss. Viejo) Ca.
Proved to be one of the major cogs behind the success of a team that not only claimed the state’s CIF Southern Section Divison II championship but finished 2004 ranked third in the country by USA Today. Characterized as a smart player who knows how to read an offense, as well as a relentless persuer who is able to combine great lower body strength with speed and a quick first step. Credited with 65 tackles, 10 quarterback sacks (third in the league) and two fumble recoveries a year ago to earn all-Orange County Region by the L.A. Times and defensive player-of-the-year accolades by the Orange County Register. Enjoyed seven tackles, three QB takedowns and one fumble recovery in a 14-7 win over Mater Dei.
