247 Sports: Team USA top ten
3. Eric Beisel, LB, Fenton (Mo.) Rockwood Summit
The three-star linebacker has taken over as the unspoken leader of the Team USA defense. He's constantly helping get others into the position and appears to have earned the respect of the players and coaches in Austin. He's got a motor that runs hot, and he blasted four-star running back Tarean Folston on a blitz in the scrimmage, which lead to a rushed throw.

EDSBS: A SHORT PLAYOFF NOTE. LET'S DO FOOTBALL THINGS.
If things were permanent, we would still be passing ten times a game. If they were permanent, we would have no night games, another thing that would be the ruination of college football along with the twelfth game, the BCS, most rules changes, conference realignment, the Bowl Coalition, Penn State joining a conference, Notre Dame having a bad decade and a half, and student-athletes being able to leave school early, and that whole thing about televising games.
None of them destroyed the game. We will watch it anyway because it is a stupid and welcome diversion from real life, a diversion with a perpetually corrupt underbelly reliant on free labor and the notion that you will show up no matter what--which, bitching as you drag your nails across the living room floor toward the television, you likely still will. It is literally the easiest thing in the world to proclaim the end of something. Figuring out the plot in continuation is the hardest. Look around at who's doing what, and you'll see who likes the easy work, and who likes the hard stuff.
