Five-star release heads into top 10

After months of traveling from one corner of the country to another for Rivals.com Junior Days, NIKE Camps, visits to high schools for spring practices and other camps and combines, the third official player rankings for the class of 2008 have been released.
Today's release is for players that have received the prestigious five-star rating and are ranked from No. 13 through No. 7 overall nationally. They're also ranked as 6.1 on the Rivals Rating Scale, which means they're projected to be the franchise players in this year's class.
These players are truly considered the elite prospects in the country and are deemed to have excellent pro potential. They should be high-major prospects with the ability to make an immediate impact in college football next season.
