Change at the top

The nation's No. 2 overall prospect, Reuben Foster, transferred from LaGrange-Troup County, Ga., to Auburn High School. The five-star linebacker takes the the No. 1 slot in Alabama.

The next six players in the state remained the same. Earnest Robinson, four-star wide receiver and Auburn commitment from Pinson Valley, did move ahead of Jeremy Johnson, four-star quarterback from Montgomery-Carver. Kamryn Melton, three-star cornerback and Auburn commitment from Dothan, moved up a spot from No. 14 to No. 13.

New top back

Jonathan Ford, running back from New Hope, takes the top back in the state. Ford’s recruitment has picked up tremendously with scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. Jordan Huff will have a chance to regain the No. 1 spot once we see how he has recovered from the season ending knee injury.

Cracks Top 25

T.J. McCollum, safety from Clay-Chalkville, is on the rise. He is physically one of the most impressive prospects in the state. Last year was his first season playing safety after spending his sophomore year at receiver. McCollum has an offer from Mississippi State.

Abundance

There are plenty of wide receivers in the state, and several schools from across the country have taken notice. There are 10 receivers who are currently ranked among the Top 30 prospects in Alabama.

Stay tuned as the state rankings will expand to the Top 40 in May. Who's next?
