With the full update Rivals 2025250, ranking of positions – and now the state rankings – comprehensive, there’s a lot of information to digest as we go through the summer. The state rankings, in particular, revealed some fascinating stories. Here are three of the most interesting state ranking scenarios for the Class of 2025.
NEW JOB CLASSIFICATION 2025: Pro-style QB | Dual Threat QB | To come back | Versatile back | wide receiver | tight end | Offensive tackle | Offensive guard | defensive tackle | Weak defensive end | Strong Side Defensive End | Inside linebacker | outside linebacker | Cornerback | Security | Athlete
1. Who will end up as the highest ranked QB in Ohio?
The battle for quarterbacks at Ohio State is going to be great to watch as this class of 2025 develops. Ryan Montgomery was the No. 1 quarterback in the state and one of the highest-ranked quarterbacks in that class since the start of the ranking cycle, but ohio state commit Tavian St. Clair jumped up the rankings in this update.
Montgomery has been very good in several events this offseason, but St. Clair is an increasingly impressive prospect who has shown a lot of progress over the past year. If he continues to develop at this rate, he could overtake Montgomery before the end of the ranking cycle.
2. Can Harlem Berry join an elite Louisiana running back fraternity?
Former five star Leonard Fournette signed with USL in the 2014 class and finished No. 1 in the Louisiana State Rankings that year. Former five star Derrius Guice nearly finished atop the state standings the following year, but no running back since then has come close to finishing in that No. 1 spot.
Harlem Barry has a chance to be the next running back to finish No. 1 in Louisiana State’s rankings, joining only Fournette and the former five-star Joe McKnight in 2007. There’s stiff competition for Berry to wait before it’s all said and done, but at this point it looks like Berry has the inside lane to be the first running back to finish No. 1 in the State since Fournette.
3. Where will Nevada’s big offensive linemen land?
It’s not often that high school offensive lines look like the one Bishop of Las Vegas Gorman will field this year. Five stars Douglas Utu and his Rivals250 teammates SJ Alofaituli And Alai Kalaniuvalu will pretty much have their pick of varsity teams before all is said and done. Where they will all land is the bigger question.
It’s still early in the recruiting process and none of the three have really pitched in yet. USC And Oklahoma are in a strong position for Utu, and the Trojans have also done well with Alofaituli. Utah should also be heavily involved with Alofaituli. The Utes also did a good job with Kalaniuvalu early in the process.
Each of these three coveted prospects will receive their fair share of visits, so a lot can change down the road, but if a team were able to sign all three, it would make for an outstanding run.
