The Pre-season State Rankings for the Class of 2010 will be released over the next two weeks. Today, Pennsylvania, Kansas, and New Mexico state rankings are unveiled.

The top spot in the Pennsylvania Top 50 is held down by a quarterback, but it is another group of positions that catches the eye of North manager Bob Lichtenfels.

"Pennsylvania is very deep this year, especially on the offensive and defensive lines. There are nine offensive or defensive linemen ranked in the top twenty," said Lichtenfels. "The number one spot in the state is held by quarterback Paul Jones (Sto-Rox) who is widely considered as one of the best quarterbacks in the nation and he solidified that ranking with a solid effort at the Pittsburgh Combine."

Jones faces competition from another combine standout in defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (George Washington).

"Floyd is the most dominant defensive tackle we have seen in the state since Callahan Bright. Penn State is hitting the in-state talent hard this year as they have landed commitments from six of the top sixteen players in the state."

Justin McCay
While there is competition in Pennsylvania, the Kansas Top 20 has a very solid number one and number two but there is no compeition for the top spot believes Midlands manager Baron Flenory, Jr.

"To me, linebacker Justin McCay is the top player in the country," said Flenory. "He is big, very fast, explosive, and naturally athletic. When you watch McCay play, you see how raw he is and it becomes scary to think of how much better he will get. At wide receiver, he makes plays solely because of his superior athleticism and no one on the field is anywhere near him. He accelerates like no one else that I have seen and he accelerates for 100 yards. He gets faster with every step. On defense, he is natural. You can't escape his range. He has the tools to play on Sundays at two positions; I mean, what's not to like? It is really that simple.

"A name to listen out for, is wide receiver Curry Sexton. He is a two way athlete that flat out knows how to play the game. He is not a prospect that will blow you away with his physical attributes but, when you tally the stats at the end of the game, Sexton will show up. At this past weekends Super Jayhawk Camp at Kansas, Sexton impressed by making play after play from both the wide receiver and safety positions. He only holds one offer from Wyoming however, where ever he lands, he will make some coach very happy."
