Wednesday: East State Rankings

The Southeast 150 was released Tuesday morning one day after Scout released its updated 2014 Scout 300.

It is now time to release the 2014 pre-season state rankings for the states that fall in the southeast region.

The top prospect in Alabama is cornerback Marlon Humphrey, a five-star cornerback out of Hoover. He is being targeted by many top schools, but the University of Alabama is the favorite. His father, Bobby Humphrey played for the Crimson Tide.

Alabama State Rankings

It is a battle at the top between two big defensive tackles in the state of Arkansas. Josh Frazier held that top spot entering the summer, but University of Arkansas commit Bijhon Jackson has taken over that spot since impressing Scout at numerous events in recent months.

Arkansas State Rankings

We always go 100 deep in the Sunshine State and it always a strong group. Florida has six five-star prospects at this time and Sony Michel (Georgia commit) is on the top of the rankings. It is going to be a battle for him to keep that spot. Chad Thomas, a Miami commit is charging and is now the No. 3 prospect in the state with Florida State commit Kain Daub in at No. 2.

Florida State Rankings

Norcross went 15-0 last season and Lorenzo Carter was a big part of that championship defense. Carter is the No. 3 prospect in the country and the No. 1 prospect in Georgia this year. He has a strong grip on that spot, but there is plenty of talent behind him.

Georgia State Rankings

It is a very strong year at the top in the state of Louisiana. We have been talking about Leonard Fournette and Cameron Robinson for years and they not only are one, two in the state, but one, two in the country.

Gerald Willis is another five-star prospect and he sits at No. 3.

Louisiana State Rankings

Roderick Taylor has convinced most, if not all that he is the top 2014 prospect in the state of Mississippi. The strong and agile interior offensive lineman out of Callaway has committed to Ole Miss. Four of the top eight prospects have committed to the Rebels. Mississippi State has two, Florida State has one, and LSU has the other.

Mississippi State Rankings

North Carolina continues to produce a lot of talented prospects. Former Notre Dame commit Elijah Hood will start off the season as the top prospect in the state with Florida commit Will Grier right behind him.

North Carolina State Rankings

Alabama recruits the best and many times, they get the best. They currently have the No. 1 prospect in South Carolina on their commitment list and that is outside linebacker Christian Miller. The Spring Valley star is ahead of Donnell Stanley, another Scout 100 prospect.

South Carolina State Rankings

So far, the University of Tennessee has two of the top three prospects on their commitment list and they hope to have all three in February.

Running back Jalen Hurd is No. 1 and safety Todd Kelly, Jr. is No. 3 with wide receiver Josh Malone in at No. 2. Malone is still uncommitted.
