Haden is rated as the third-best all-purpose back nationally. Johnson is the No. 1 player in the Massachusetts top 10 of 2008.

The Eagles are also involved with Virginia Tech for the services of Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson's Ryan Williams, a four-star recruit who is ranked No. 3 among running backs by Rivals.com.
