First and 10: Top teammates

Aquinas is another school that boasts more than just two highly touted
teammates, but Grimes (above) and Bosa carry the highest ranking. Bosa, an Ohio State commit, is as formidable a defensive presence as there is in the
country. He boasts a college-ready body and some surprising quickness for his
size. Meanwhile, Grimes is the No.1-ranked junior in Florida and brings an
impressive speed-size combination to the table. The 6-foot-4 wide receiver is
uncommitted but a seemingly safe bet to eventually join Bosa at Ohio State. --
CB Levonta Taylor (No. 12) and Khalan Laborn (No. 34, 2017)
Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes
Ocean Lakes has been dominating the competition this season, outscoring
opponents 260-26 through five games so far. Taylor, the top cornerback in the
country, hasn't been getting many balls thrown in his direction this year. Teams
seem to really shy away from him which makes sense because he's a five-star and
committed to Florida State. The only thing holding Laborn (above) back is the
fact that Ocean Lakes is scoring too many points. Laborn has only played in the
first half of most games this year, carrying the ball 49 times for 843 yards and
scoring 13 times. It's pretty incredible that he's averaging almost 18 yards per
carry. -- Adam Friedman, Mid-Atlantic analyst
WR D.J. Matthews (No. 16, 2017) and DB
Shaun Wade (No. 19, 2017)
Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian
A couple of juniors, Matthews (above) and Wade play on the same 7-on-7 squad as well as
on the same high school team. One of the best wide receivers in America,
Matthews is a long-time Florida State commit, while Wade, a long, athletic
defensive back, is committed to Ohio State. Florida is still heavily involved in
Wade's recruitment, while Matthews is seen as extremely solid in his pledge to
the Seminoles. -- Cassidy
QB Tate Martell (No. 18, 2017) and WR
Tyjon Lindsey (No. 20, 2017)
Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman
A dynamic quarterback and his favorite offensive target, Martell (above) and Lindsey are
two key cogs to one of the country's most exciting and productive high school
offenses. Martell has been a fixture on the recruiting scene for years, and the
playmaking quarterback has already committed to Texas A&M. With his
commitment set, he has turned his sites to bringing the versatile Lindsey with
him to the Lone Star State. Lindsey is an X-factor with the ball in his hands
and is looking to find the perfect offensive to utilize his talents at the next
level. -- Woody Wommack, Southeast analyst
ATH Brandon Burton (No. 47) and DE Wole Betiku (No. 36)
Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra
The Serra defense is absolutely loaded but with Betiku in the front seven and
Burton (above) patrolling the secondary, it's tough for opponents to move the ball.
Betiku has come off the edge really well this season using his physical play and
aggression to dominate offensive tackles. Burton, who also shines at receiver,
is so fast sideline to sideline that he can track down any play. On deep balls,
Burton is great in coverage and is never shy to lay the wood. -- Adam Gorney,

OT Landon Young (No. 91) and OT Jedrick Wills (No. 13, 2017)
Lexington (Ky.) Lafayette
With each of them being bigger than 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, it would be tough
to find a bigger pair of tackles on any high school team in the country. Young (above) has steadily
risen to the Rivals100 and he continues to get better every time we see him. Wills was very
impressive at the Five-Star Challenge this past summer
and earned his spot among the class of 2017's initial five-stars. Young is bound
for Kentucky and Wildcats fans are hoping he can bring Wills along with
him. -- Wommack
WR Dylan Crawford (No. 90) and QB
K.J. Costello (No. 28)
Racho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita
Crawford (above) transferred to Santa Margarita for his senior season and it's worked
out well so far. He and Costello played on the same 7-on-7 team and they have
tremendous chemistry together. It could impact Crawford's college decision with
Stanford as one of the options. Costello has not had tremendous talent at wide
receiver during his time at Santa Margarita and now Crawford gives him that. -- Gorney
OG Michael Onwenu (No. 83) and WR
Donovan Peoples-Jones (No. 44, 2017)
Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech
Cass Tech is an FBS pipeline, sending 23 players to the Power Five level in just
the past decade. This is also not the first time they have had two prospects on
the team ranked in the Top 100 of their respective classes. And, on this Cass
Tech team, Onwenu (above) and Peoples-Jones represent just half of the Technician's
four-star prospects. They are the highest ranked, and both are coming off
exceptional summers that saw them earn major awards at national showcase events.
The 6-foot-3, 367-pound Onwenu is committed to Michigan, while
Peoples-Jones is open and evaluating more than 15 scholarship offers. --

DT Rashan Gary (No. 2) and LB Drew Singleton (No. 144, 2017)
Paramus (N.J.) Catholic
Every college football fan has had their eyes fixed on Gary (above) since before the
season started. Every twist and turn in the five-star's recruitment has been
interesting to analyze. Gary had his best game of the season last weekend
against Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic. He dominated the offensive line from his
defensive tackle position, getting sacks, tackles for a loss, beating double and
triple teams and freeing up his teammates to make plays. One of the beneficiaries
of Gary's play has been Singleton. The 2017 Rivals250 linebacker has all the
physical tools to be a star in college football and he has gotten much better at
quick deciphering the play and flowing to the ball. Singleton's game has really
improved this season and Paramus Catholic's opponents are having to gameplan
against him as well as Gary. -- Friedman
