Zach Abey

Archbishop Spalding, quarterback, senior

Abey, 6 feet 2, 205 pounds, has the arm of a drop-back quarterback and the running ability of a triple-option threat. He ran 121 times last fall for 785 yards and completed 50 of 105 passes. Committed to Buffalo, he also had 36 tackles at safety.

Dunbar, running back, senior

In the Poets’ two state playoff wins last season, the 5-9, 190-pound running back single-handedly gained as much or more yardage than the opposition’s entire team. He was an All-Metro second-team selection after rushing for 1,781 yards and scoring 16 touchdowns.

Jared Cohen

McDonogh, offensive lineman, senior

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound tackle, who is committed to Maryland, was an All-Metro second-team pick last fall. Cohen, who put on 20 to 30 pounds before his junior year, bench presses 375 pounds. A great pass blocker with excellent technique, he will anchor a strong offensive line.

William Crest

Dunbar, quarterback, senior

In leading the Poets to their third straight state title, Crest, 6-2, 210 pounds, threw for more than 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns. He threw for two touchdowns in Dunbar’s 39-0 win in the Class 1A state final. Crest, a four-star prospect according to Rivals.com, has committed to West Virginia.

Ryan Hursey

Westminster, wide receiver, senior

The lone returnee among the top five receivers in an offense that accumulated more than 4,000 passing yards en route to the Class 4A state semifinal last year, the 6-foot-4,180-pound Hursey should be a prime target this fall. He had 17 catches for 167 yards and six touchdowns as a junior.

Demetrius Johnson

Annapolis Area Christian, wide receiver, senior

At 6-2, 205 pounds, Johnson combines the size and skill to be a formidable challenge for opposing defensive backs. The only question is whether the Eagles will have a quarterback who can get him the ball. A Rivals.com four-star prospect, he doubles as a defensive back.
