Nobody racks up more frequent flier miles than the Rivals.com recruiting analysts.
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 fourth official player rankings for the class of 2008 have been released today.
This release is for players that have received the prestigious five-star rating and are ranked from No. 6 through No. 1 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 dent in college football next season.
The first five-stars were released on Tuesday, followed by the second group on Wednesday and the third group on Thursday. The final group out today is the final players to receive the prestigious five-star ranking in the initial rankings for this year's class.
On Tuesday, following the Memorial Day holiday, the first official Rivals100 for the class of 2008 will be unveiled. That will be the first time that stars are awarded for those players and they will be ranked numerically from No. 1 to 100.
