The Chiefs have four possible Division I prospects on their squad: Kyle Williams, Jonathan Andrews, Mandell Smith, and Leonte Wright.
The defense also has their share of stars with linebacker Chase Lashley, linebacker O'Neil Dubose, defensive lineman Tony Stallworth, and defensive back John Madison..
