Scout.com takes a look at five prospects from the Northwest whose spring and summer performances were reflected in a rise up the latest set of rankings…

The spring and summer camp season has come to an end. After months of drills, combines and 7on7’s, we will finally get to see some real hitting soon. However, the camps provided a great opportunity to evaluate and rank the prospects. The five players below made a name for themselves this spring, earning offers and rising up the rankings.

OG Cole Madison, Burien (Wash.) Kennedy
Recruiting:
Committed to Washington State
Madison is a jumbo athlete that could fit in on the offensive or defensive lines, as well as at tight end. After seeing him at multiple camps this summer, the Scout staff is confident his best position is on the offensive line. Madison shot up the guard rankings due to his excellent athleticism and physical mentality.

OLB Johnny Ragin, Wilsonville (Ore.) High
Recruiting:
Offers from BYU, Oregon State and Portland State.
Ragin was everywhere this spring and never ceased to impress. Ragin has an unbelievable frame and could play safety, linebacker or h-back. Scout likes him best at outside linebacker, where he is extremely fluid and will have no issues in coverage.

OG Doug Brenner, Portland (Ore.) Jesuit
Recruiting:
Offers from Army, Oregon State, Portland State and Yale.
Brenner's versatility was a weakness coming into the spring, with no clear answer as to where he would play in college. After a couple camps it was clear the athlete who has played nearly every position for Jesuit had found a home as an interior lineman. Brenner is extremely strong and like Madison has excellent athleticism compared to most linemen.

OLB Joe Martarano, Fruitland (Id.) High
Recruiting:
Committed to Boise State
Martarano made a name for himself last summer by winning the LB MVP at the Northwest Elite camp. Since then, he has added a ton of good weight and already looks the part of a college linebacker. Martarano is also a big time baseball prospect.

TE Eric Cotton, Nampa (Id.) Columbia
Recruiting:
Committed to Stanford
Cotton was a relative unknown when Washington State offered him in April. Since then, he has impressed at every stop and accumulated nearly double digit offers. Cotton plays wide receiver in high school and should have no problem fitting into Stanford's tight end friendly offense.
