Oklahoma State fan. You said (loudly). We agreed, in the end.
Denton (Texas) Midfielder Guyer Jackson Arnold is currently a five-star lead and is also ranked as the number 13 lead in the country. The Sooners has an honest player in Arnold, and he is possibly one of the safest bettors in the entire class, regardless of position.
End of the defense of Northern Kansas City (Mo.) Adepoju Adewore has seen a healthy rise from 53rd to 35th as he will be competing on his own for the fifth star.
In addition, Oklahoma is still seasoned in the race to overturn Denton (Texas) Guyer Peyton Bowenwho have seen a huge rise in the top 10 on their way to a five-star spot.
Despite the 6-6 season, the potential for the class of 2023 in Norman remains high.
While GeorgiaHis 2023 rank still has some holes to fill, it still has a way to take the throne in the team rankings in February.
Bradenton (Fla.) End of IMG Academy’s Defense Samuel M’Pemba remains in the top 10 while the Bulldogs are listed among many other five-star prospects, including Austin (Texas) attacking defender Westlake. TJ Shanahan Jr. and athlete of the Archbishop of Washington (DC) Carroll Port of Nyckoles.
From top to bottom, Georgia has a heavy presence in Rivals250, because of that success Smart Kirby have found on the field has turned into a tenfold recruitment route.
Although there is not much movement at the top with USCof the 2023 pledge class, there is a pair of newly minted five-star stars that are trending towards the Trojans ahead of National Signing Day.
Midfielder for Los Alamitos (Calif.) Malachi Nelson still in 6th place and Las Vegas (Nev.) Wide Receiver Bishop Gorman Branch of Zachariah maintains its spot in the top 20, but among entries new to the five-star rating include Phoenix (Ariz.) Top tight finish Duke Robinson and Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco ends the defense Matayo Uiagalelei.
maybe Lincoln Riley finished his first full cycle in Los Angeles with four five-star commitments?
When you commit to being the #1 player in your class, you’ll almost certainly be on this list.
In this case, it’s beneficial Texas by having New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman quarterback Arch Manning The Longhorns’ 2023 class leader also has a DeSoto (Texas) four-star wide receiver. Johntay Cook (No. 30), Edgewater (Fla.) four stars running backwards Cedric Baxter (Number 32), South Oak Cliff’s 4-star corner (Texas) Malik Muhammad (No. 34) and Austin (Texas) Westlake defend four stars Colton Vasek (No. 40), all in the top 40.
Texas continues trend for five-star defender Denton (Texas) Ryan Anthony Hill for a long time as the Longhorns sought to make the final push to the hiring cycle.
Despite some drama late in the recruiting process for Hoschton (Ga.) five-star safety Hoschton (Ga.) Mill Creek Caleb Downs, Alabama committed to leading safety in the country, ranked 7th overall in the country.
Even though Nick Saban can secure Downs’ signature on National Signing Day, the Crimson Tide is on the hunt for the five-star star with a Christmas present in the form of the defensive end of Tampa (Fla.) Berkeley Prep. Keon Keeley (Number 21) at the top of their wish list.
Looking deeper into the top 50, four-star Buford (Ga.) runs backwards Justice Haynes (No. 29), Longview four-star wide receiver (Texas) Jalen Hale (No. 36) and Eufaula (Ala.) finish the four-star defense Yhonzae Pierre (No. 50) is the remainder of the introduced Alabama pledges. The Crimson Tide is still in the mix for some additional top 50 leads including Montgomery (Ala.) Carver finishing the four-star defense Jaquavious Russaw.
