4.8 40
Offers: Arkansas, Baylor, Cal, Colorado, Houston, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Okie St., Oregon, Stanford, TCU and Texas Tech.

Prep: As a sophomore 83 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 6 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in 10 games. As a junior 86 tackles, 11 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.

Analysis: Hughes has an amazing frame for a high school kid. He has a great work ethic and motor, which is essential at the DE position. He does a great job getting off blocks, even though he was often double and even triple teamed. He also utilizes his hands very well, and does not let blockers get into his body. Nathan does a great job against the run, and because the teams in his league are primarily running teams, it’s hard to gauge where he is as a pass rusher. Hughes needs to work on his initial burst and his speed, but he will be a beast at the next level.
