Top Incoming Frosh OL and DL

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.

When we receive a recruiting magazine, we translate each player’s ranking into a points system from 1-100 and then log each and every player into the computer and give them a point total from each source. Naturally, the more they are mentioned and the higher they are rated by each publication, the more total points they accrue. After months of entering all of this information, I sort the list by position and by total points and then rank the players from most points to least.

In today’s blog I have included the top incoming freshman OL and DL for 2011. Each one of these players is ranked in the Top 500 prospects regardless of position and will appear in my preseason magazine. Since we want the college preview to continue to be the most in-depth and accurate magazine out there, if you find any information that is wrong or if you are questioning a player’s ranking please contact brandon@philsteele.com. In Monday’s Blog I will post the top LB’s and DB’s. Have a great weekend!

  • Jwendt

    where was suh ranked as an incoming freshman?

  • http://www.philsteele.com Phil Steele

    Suh was ranked as a PS#7DL and clearly not only lived up to that billing but far exceeded it. Thanks, Phil

  • OviedoSM1

    In my opinion Aaron Lynch should be at least PS #2, he’s going to be pretty amazing. He’s huge, fast, and an extremely talented pass rusher, especially considering how big he is. I honestly felt like he had the best game out of everyone in the HS Army All American Game, he just dominated all the OL there.

    Remember that PS# includes the entire DL and not just DE’s. Also I would not read to much in the difference between a PS#2 and PS#7 they are still considered VHT’s and have very limited number of total pts separating them. In my opinion, Lynch will be getting some reps right away this season and Kelly’s recruiting job on the front 7 this year could mean a BCS trip or two in the near future for the Irish! Thanks, Phil
