Saturday: West State Rankings
In the Texas Top 100 you will find a pair of defensive backs topping the charts in Beaumont Ozen's Tony Brown and Lewisville Hebron's Jamal Adams and the talent in the defensive backfield runs thick as over one-fifth of the talent in the Texas 100 is rated at either corner or safety.

The Oklahoma Top 20 is led by quarterback David Cornwell, an Alabama commit. Cornwell will be leading Norman North in 2012 after playing for Jones last season. North fell one win short of a state title in 2012 and has it's eyes on Oklahoma's Gold Ball this year.

The Missouri Top 20 does not have the offensive weapon at the top like Dorial Green-Beckham or Ezekiel Elliott this season, as the guys in the trenches take center stage. No. 1-3 are all offensive linemen. Roderick Johnson leads the pack of bullish offensive linemen, followed by Andy Bauer and Brian Wallace.

It is a pretty good year for talent in the Sunflower State as the state boasts double digit potential BCS signees and overall national five-star talent Braden Smith. Smith is the highest rated player from the state since running back Bryce Brown, who now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles and he tops the Kansas Top 5

Nebraska always does a great job mining in-state talent, so it is no surprise to see that it has already secured pledges from the state's top two rated prospects in offensive linemen D.J. Foster and Mick Stoltenberg, both in the Nebraska Top 5.
