WR CHRIS OWUSU SENIOR
Good health could mean busting out all over again
A healthy Owusu is one of the best big-play guys in the country, especially on kickoffs. As a sophomore in 2009 he had 37 returns for 1,167 yards and three TDs to go with 37 catches for 682 yards and five TDs. Limited by an assortment of injuries last year, his numbers dropped to 19 returns for 462 yards and 25 catches for 396 yards.
LB JAMES VAUGHTERS FRESHMAN
Opposing quarterbacks of the future, beware
Keeping the 6' 2", 225-pound four-star recruit after the departures of Jim Harbaugh and Vic Fangio was a huge coup for Shaw. A bulldozer with 4.6 speed in the 40 and a knack for rushing the passer, Vaughters had 95 tackles, four sacks and four picks as a senior at Tucker (Ga.) High.
