Luc falls, Prater and Anderson on the Rise in Latest Rivals 100
The latest Rivals 100 rankings are out and as expected there has been some movement. We last reported on the Rivals Top 100 back on March 12th at which time Treasure Coast Linebacker Jeff Luc was the 10th ranked player overall in the country. The most recent Rivals 100 has slid him 15 places to #25 in the country. This is still a tremendous ranking however there have been complaints of inability to get off blocks, get to the football and make plays. In the process, Luc last his 5 star rating and is now rated 4 stars by Rivals. I am sure somebody is going to have to pay for this.
Though he was not in the Rivals 100 the last time we reported on it, Gridironstuds.com member Cody Riggs entered the Top 100 during the offseason and remained there until this most recent update. Riggs has fallen out of the top 100 as others have had some strong performances and Riggs had a few ball caught on him in the nationally televised game against South Carolina Byrnes High School two weeks ago. If you have played the cornerback position like I have then you know that these things will happen. Kudos to Riggs and St. Thomas for taking on one of the top teams in the nation and stepping up to the challenge.
The biggest move by a Gridironstuds.com member since our last report in March has been by Glenville H.S. (Ohio) safety Latwan Anderson. Back in March, Anderson was ranked as the 66th best prospect in the country. The latest Rivals 100 rankings has Anderson as the 18th best prospect in the country. That’s an amazing move of 48 spots. Anderson had a great summer and has not disappointed at his new address Glenville H.S. after transferring from St. Edwards where he played last season.
Proviso West H.S. (Illinois) wide receiver Kyle Prater was not a Gridironstuds.com member back in March but he is now and he is also the #2 ranked prospect in the entire country. Prater is a physical specimen who plays to his body’s potential. He is a USC commit and is having a fine season. Lache Seastrunk maintains his 4th in the country rating and Seantrel Henderson holds at #1, a spot he’s not likely to relinquish standing at 6’8″ and 301 lbs with enough athleticism to be a force on the basketball court.
The list below shows where all the Gridironstuds.com members are currently ranked against where they were ranked back in March. Non member means they were not Gridironstuds.com members back in March of this year.
