Now that we’ve taken a look at the top returning players in HBCU football, next we’ll take a look at the newcomers who could have a big impact in 2013. Today’s focus is on the SWAC. Next, we’ll check out the CIAA.
Chuck Baker, Southern University

Baker appeared SEC-bound a year ago, as he committed to LSU. Baker had an inconsistent senior season, and eventually decommitted from the Tigers. Their loss has become Southern’s gain as Baker will add yet another weapon for quarterback Dray Joseph to throw to along with senior Lee Doss. His size (6’2, 185 pounds) will make him a tough cover.
Marcus Adams, Alabama State

Adams is a solid score for Alabama State. The 6’0, 275 defensive tackle finished with 14 sacks at Atlanta’s Try-City High School. Adams originally committed to Western Kentucky and had offers from Ole Miss and TCU according to ESPN.com, which ranked him as a solid three-star recruit. Adams spent his career going up against Georgia recruit Shamir Devine, so it shouldn’t be long before he masters SWAC defenses.
Harvey Harris, Alabama A&M
