2011′s Top Incoming Frosh

Covering college football as I do takes 52 weeks a year as it is and while I personally do not scout the high school games and rate each player I do compile my rankings based on the many different recruiting services across the country that follow and scout HS football year round. I not only like to use all of the biggest and best services, but I also use regional reports as well. The colleges themselves use many of these services to get the latest information on recruits.

One very important part of my College Football Preview Magazine is an individual player’s “PS#”. You will see them on almost every page and I find them vital in my analysis of a team.  A simple definition for a PS# is my ranking of the players at their positions coming out of high school.

When I receive a recruiting magazine, I translate each player’s ranking into a point system from 1-100.  Each and every player is then logged into the computer and give them a point total from each source. This is a very time-consuming process. Many players are listed by just one or two sources. The higher ranked recruits are mentioned by almost every source. The more they are mentioned and the higher they are rated in each publication, the more total points they accrue. After months of entering all of this information, I sort the list by each position and by total points. Naturally, the QB with the most total points then becomes PS#1QB for that year. If a player is PS#99QB, that means he ranks 99th in total points of all QB’s coming out of high school that year.

While my full recruiting rankings for this year will not be completed for a week or so, I thought I would give you a sneak peak at how some of my top position players are shaping up. Here are the top 10 incoming frosh by position. Keep in mind I lump all the OT’s, OG’s and OC’s into OL and the DE’s and DT’s into DL. Also both ILB/MLB’s and OLB’s are into LB and CB’s and S’s are lumped into DB since their are many players that switch back and forth. Also these players are rated at the position that they were recruited and signed at by the school.
