There are three major adjustments of note in the most recent release of the Class of 2013 Top247, including a new five-star prospect and a fast-rising defensive lineman from the same state.
Tony Connor is now the nation's No. 14 overall prospect according to 247Sports.
Here’s a look at the risers.
Tony Conner, S, Batesville (Miss.) South Panola
The Move: From four-star and No. 28 to five-star and No. 14
A recent trip through the state of Mississippi included a stop at South Panola to see Conner. The 6-foot-1.5, 203-pound safety with low 4.5-second speed in the 40-yard dash and big- time instincts is a football player in every sense of the word. He’s got the frame and body type college coaches covet all the way down to skinny ankles, and the reactive quickness, physicality and football instincts very few possess. His recruitment is an Alabama-Ole Miss-Mississippi State battle.
Chris Jones, SDE, Houston (Miss.)
The Move: From 125 to 38
There has not been a member of the 2013 class rise as much, and as quickly, as Jones, a Mississippi State commit. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder, who is just start to develop physically in the weight room has become more than a physical specimen on Friday nights, but a game changer with a high ceiling that is yet to be close to being reached. He has not only risen to the top 50 in the class of 2013, but he also received the final defensive invite to the 2013 Under Armour All-America game last week.
Elijah Daniel, DE, Avon (Ind.)
The Move: From 100 to 83
The ascension of the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Daniel continues. Not only does he possess a very quick first step, and the ability to rush the passer and pursue the ball, but is now living in the weight room and is playing with even more strength and explosive ability as a senior. Daniel’s body and reactive quickness, along with his change of direction, are among the very best at the defensive position in the 2013 class. Daniel is committed to Clemson, but Florida and other programs are trying to change his mind.
