A pair of wide receivers lead the way with Julio Jones from Foley, Ala., and A.J. Green, from Summerville, S.C. Both have similar playing styles, as they love to be the downfield jump-ball types of receivers. In a region with 26 members of the Scout.com National 100, it was a tough call, but Jones again holds the Southeast's top spot.
The wide receiver position overall is without a doubt the deepest in the Southeast as six made the National 100 list and 27 made the Southeast 150.
Perhaps the strongest position are the linebackers, led by Florida State commitment Nigel Bradham out of Wakulla, Fla. With 24 players occupying the top 150 spots in the region overall and eight jumping in the National 100, it just follows the strong 'backer trend across the nation.
Twenty-two runnning backs earned a spot on the list, including Brandon Barnes from Bunn, N.C., who made a huge jump in the rankings this tim around, and Georgia commitment Richard Samuel out of Cass High in Cartersville, Ga., who may actually make the move to linebacker in college.
Three offensive linemen from the Southeast made the National 100, including Matt Patchan who almost grabbed the top overall spot in Florida.
