Rivals100: Final

The final release of the Class of 2006 Rivals100 didn't come without some serious movement after the final whistle blew on the all-star and high school seasons.
Setting records at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, five-star running back Chris Wells made a jump into the top five to the No. 3 spot.
Wells put together a performance at the all-star game that had him finishing with a record-setting three touchdowns and the third most yardage in game history. His senior year was also outstanding as he rushed for more than 2,000 yards and averaging a gaudy 9.6 yards per carry.
CaliFlorida Bowl standout Shareece Wright made the jump from outside of the 100 to No. 38. His elite speed and showing at the CaliFlorida Bowl proved he was among the nation's elite.
Army Bowl practices also helped finalize one of the top ranking battles that had been going on all year between five-star defensive tackles Al Woods and Gerald McCoy.
McCoy absolutely dominated all week leading up to Saturday's Army Bowl and made the jump from the No. 10 spot to the No. 4 position.
A.J. Wallace's continued success through each year of his high school career and performance in the all-star season made his case an easy one for five-star status. He jumps in at No. 19.
Highly-regarded athlete C.J. Gable was also a new five-star added to the list after a strong senior season and his performance at the CaliFlorida Bowl.
After one of the more impressive showings at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas, South Carolina defensive end Ricky Sapp was awarded his fifth star and made a huge climb from No. 63 to No. 21.
Even though many hailed him as a top cornerback prospect, Texas commitment Deon Beasley was outstanding all week at the Army Bowl at wide receiver. Wherever he is on the field, Beasley is a threat and that was influential in his ranking. He jumped from the bottom of the list to No. 77.
After further evaluation, Sam Young looks like a future pro-performer and jumped back into top group coming in at No. 11.
As he has done since the beginning of the fall, running back C.J. Spiller charged up the list and sits at the No. 8 spot.
Several prospects made a last minute jump in the Rivals100.
It was hard to ignore the performance that Cleveland defensive end Robert Rose had during the Army Bowl. He was harassing quarterbacks all game with four hurries and a tackle for a loss. Rose's stock probably went up the most going from out of the Rivals100 to the No. 17 spot.
Texas commit Jared Norton has been making a case for a top ranking with solid performances all season long. Those stats included 195 tackles, 13 sacks, and 42 tackles for loss for his Rowlett team. Norton jumped in at No. 89.
