Rivals250: Risers and sliders
There are always significant changes in the Rivals100 Presented by Under Armour, which was released on Monday, but there are even more adjustments throughout the entire Rivals250 list as the spring evaluation period continues.
To quickly review the Rivals100, Seffner (Fla.) Armwood defensive end Byron Cowart catapulted two spots to take over the No. 1 position from Albany (Ga.) Westover School defensive tackle Trenton Thompson, who moves to third overall. Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco quarterback Josh Rosen stayed No. 2.
Seven prospects earned five-star status in this round of rankings and three recruits lost that coveted honor but still remain well-positioned in the Rivals100.
Turning to the Rivals250, Anaheim (Calif.) Servite quarterback Travis Waller, Pinson (Ala.) Pinson Valley running back Nick Gibson, Salem (Utah) Salem Hills linebacker Porter Gustin and Nashville John Overton cornerback Ugo Amadi were some of the biggest movers up in the rankings.
Waller, at No. 104, led the way regarding prospects moving from not ranked in the previous Rivals250 to making the list. There were 28 prospects in total who moved into the rankings.
A big move is considered up or down 30 or more spots or moving into the coveted five-star class, while any moves less than 30 are considered nominal. Negative moves of less than 30 slots, while certainly significant to prospects and the fan bases involved, are usually the result of so much upward movement from prospects that stood out during this evaluation cycle.
With the 2014 Rivals Camp Series regional events all wrapped up, we turn our focus to the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge early next month in Baltimore. This has been an exciting spring with lots of changes throughout the Rivals250.
