Lorenzo Carter, from Norcross Georgia.
JuJu is already a five star.
He was bumped up to 5 stars today in the update that are already showing. I don't think the second one is showing yet though.
When will this be JC?
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
It's already up.
Oh okay. I thought that was an old list. My fault.
West... must be a mistake.
Southeast ... Gotta be Trey Quinn or Gerald Willis ...
Yeah, I think he meant 5 more 2 stars.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Good call. From the West would say Mr. Quick from Fresno Central kid is electric.
I guess it depends on what east coasters consider "West" Maybe it's another Texas kid?
Around 15 kids in top 100 from everything west of Texas(Cali, NV, Az, Wa)... None in the top 10
15 kids in the top 100 from Texas alone
Damn kids out here keep playing country club sports, get no respect. Oh well, we suck at foosball but rock at waterpolo.
Nope. We think the top in Louisiana is pretty much set - as of today - with Fournette, Cam Robinson and Jones.
Fournette is a really special prospect IMO.

We have ranked three classes since the start of 247Sports, with the class of 2013 set to be finalized in the next 40'ish days.
In the 2010-12 classes the five-star's have been...
North Carolina 4
After a full 4-5 classes, I think that number is likely a little different (as we thought the Sunshine state had a special class of kids in 2011).
I've always said I think some states have a special year/class with a number of those level prospects - with the understanding guys still have to maximize their ability/develop and nothing is guaranteed, as well as injuries, misses, etc... - in 2014 Virginia and Louisiana have a real chance IMO (Florida, California and Texas can be considered special every year just because of the sheer #'s produced)
A little tech glitch - not up yet.
I understand Gerry, just pok'n at the bear a bit.
We get our start a little slower out here in the west but we're used to it by now. It all works out for the most part by the time signing day comes around. Only reason why I noticed the numbers was when I tried to look up a few 14' Cali CB's yesterday and saw around 5 guys from Cali total. Surprised me a bit after seeing Texas, FL and LA numbers in the 100.
This is all fun discussion...

And to be clear on my end, it's not a conference thing when posting numbers...
It's a talent in the region thing...what states make up the conferences - and the talent those states produce and are staying at home to play in their conferences - is the reason for the numbers (not the names on jersey's or the name of a conference).
Like I said, these are fun and interesting discussions IMO.
