The National 300 has grown up a little bit as the rest of the five-star and four-star allocations are now in place. Find out who moved up in today's release of the Scout300.


The top of the list remains the same with a pair of quarterbacks in Matt Barkley from Santa Ana, Cal., and Russell Shepard from Houston, Texas, coming in at numbers one and two, respectively. Sandwiched between the two is running back Bryce Brown from Wichita, Kansas, who had a strong contingency on the team making a push for the number one spot.

Coming in at the four and five spots are a pair of linebackers flipping positions as Manti Te'o, from Honolulu, Hawaii, is now the top strongside linebacker and Dorian Bell, from Monroeville, Pa., is the top weakside linebacker. Each sat in the others spot last time but fit their current projected position much better.

Making one of the biggest jumps nationally is UnderArmour/ Elite Camp star Abry Jones who showed off an incredibly athletic body and definitely looks like a future star defensive tackle for Georgia. He moves up to five stars and moves from defensive end to the number one defensive tackle spot in the country. Close on his heels are the always dominant Chris Davenport, from Mansfield, La., Jacobbi McDaniel, out of Madison, Fla., and Jamarkus McFarland, from Lufkin, Texas.

The cornerback position also highlights several changes at the top with Cliff Harris from Fresno, Cal., jumping over Dre Kirkpatrick for the top spot. Arkansas commitment Darius Winston, from West Helena, Ark., also makes a big jump from outside the last edition of the Scout300 to now five star status and the number five cornerback in the country.
