Our Take:

Luke Winstel

Haynes is an elusive back that carved up Alabama competition this fall. He’s currently unrated by every major recruiting service except On3, who recently gave him three stars. Due to his recent ascension, limited information is available on Haynes.

His tape is solid, and he has good vision. The three-star is a good athlete and found the end zone with ease when given the ball in space this fall.

Morgan Thomas - Familiar with the spread offense. Comfortable with delayed handoffs. Has good speed to the outside. Very strong hard cut and go guy. Plays his angles well and can adjust quickly at full speed. Shows long distance breakaway speed. Could be a huge diamond in the rough.
