Evolution is a comprehensive list highlighting the nation’s top 300 rising freshman football prospects. It’s been a banner year for the 2017 class with dozens already receiving verbal offers from D-1 schools, a number committing to D-1 schools and even one gracing the cover of ESPN the magazine.
The landscape of college football recruiting—and college football in general—is changing and Evolution is doing its part to keep fans, coaches and scouts ahead of the curve. In a day and age where everyone is looking for the next big thing and college recruiting is starting earlier than ever, Evolution will serve as the spotlight for these elite middle school athletes and how their skills will translate to the next level.
There is no doubt that academics, physical development and a number of other factors will play a role in how each student-athletes progresses. However, as of today, these 300 athletes look to be on their way to making an immediate impact on their high school programs and possibly even further.
To view the top 300 athletes of the class of 2017, sign up for a 30-day free trial of Youth1's Press Pass.
