Marrero (La.) John Ehret defensive tackle Drake Nevis is one who has seen his stock skyrocket since being named Defensive MVP at the Nike Camp in Baton Rouge back in April.

 

Nevis' junior season took a big hit from Hurricane Katrina, but like many in the New Orleans area, he rose to the occasion and made the best out of a bad situation. He finished the year with 80 tackles, including 15 for a loss, 8 sacks, 10 quarterback hurries, and 3 forced fumbles splitting time at Terrevonne High School and John Ehret..

 

Nevis committed to Ole Miss very early in the process but in the last couple of months several other schools including Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Colorado, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State, Miami and LSU have reportedly been talking about offering the 6-2, 290-pounder.

 

Check out Nevis in action in the two video clips below as Scout.com shows you why he is one of the top defensive tackles in Louisiana for 2007.

 

Note: You will see Nevis wearing #97 for Terrevone High and #99 for John Ehret.
