Tyler Kaufman/Icon SMILSU coach Les Miles could use 2013 ATH Kendell Beckwith at multiple positions.
But whoever was unfamiliar with the East Feliciana (La.) High School linebacker before the list debuted knows him now. In the initial edition of the ESPN 150, Beckwith is sitting pretty as the No. 16 prospect in the nation, the top-ranked athlete in the nation, and the best player from Louisiana.

"It was nice. It was real nice -- I was surprised a little bit," Beckwith said. "A friend of mine texted me and told me, and then I went and looked and I saw it. It was great. I was all smiles for the rest of the day."
