LINK TO JUSTIFICATION FOR RANKINGS

Risers: Nathaniel Clausey – Gilbert- Stood out to me last year when I saw Gilbert play Corona. Is a long lanky kid that gets after it. Very under the radar right now.

Blaine Pinkman (JR) – Willow Canyon- The kid is thick at 6-2 230. May turn into one of the better LBs on the West side this year.

Talaiasi Tauel (JR) – Mesa- Coach Moore says he should be great one for the Jackrabbits.

Pound for Pound Award- Rigo Garcia – Maryvale- 5-3 140- Last year the tiny guy was an all-region pick after making 56 tackles and 6 sacks.

Disclaimer: Remember, this is just my opinion. It is also a prospect list, not a player list. A player list might look a lot different. A lot of different factors go into making a good college prospect. This list is always changing and not set in stone.
