Rivals' No. 62 prospect, Atlantic Region
Junior stats: 27 receptions, 727 yards, 11 TD's

No reported test score

According to his high school coach (Michael Smith), Todd is a tremendous prospect:

“He’s the best I’ve ever seen play the position, and I’ve seen a lot of talented players in my day. He’ll have every college in the country beating down his door this fall. This is no ordinary prospect, he’s the real deal. He’s got great size, he can jump. He could put on some weight and get up to 190. He can make catches no one else I’ve seen make. He’s got tremendous hands and catching ability, and he’s the fastest player I’ve ever coached. If you put Todd in a race with Ronald Curry and Dre Bly, I’ll take Nolen. No one can catch him."
Todd has offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Nebraska, and Syracuse.

Todd's co-leaders are Virginia (in-state school; good academics) and Nebraska (growing up, he was a fan of their option offense), but he also likes Virginia Tech, Maryland, and Ohio State.

He may not camp because of summer school obligations. :(

Here's a quote from Todd, which appears his Insiders' profile:

"I'm not afraid to go up and get the ball and go up the middle. I run good routes and am quick off the ball. I want to get bigger and stronger."
