Recruiting Rankings Update: Shaking up the 2018, '19 & '20 Classes

October 3, 2017

The first month of the season is in the books, and we have had a little movement throughout our rankings.

In the 2018 class, Anthony Cook continues to check in at No. 1, but there was a shake-up in the top 10. Electric wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (pictured above) make his top-10 debut at No. 7, and Caden Sterns moved up two spots to No. 8. A new addition to the top 10 means someone has to move out. That someone is Leon O’Neal, who drops from No. 7 to No. 11.

The big mover in the rankings was wide receiver Caleb Chapman. He continues his rise up the rankings, moving from No. 34 to the 18-spot. he moved up from No. 54 to 34 last ranking period. Linebacker Alston Orji (from No. 29 to No. 23), DB Jordan Moore (32 to 26) and D-end Jarell Cherry (52 to 37) also saw significant upward movement. On the other side of things, WR Joshua Moore (18 to 30), DT Calvin Avery (21 to 28), and WR Tommy Bush (23 to 33) and RB Kelan Walker (71 to 100) took a slide in this month’s update.

There were not many new additions this time around, but Katy defensive tackle Moro Ojomo makes his first appearance at No. 52 after a very strong start to the season, and Katy Cinco Ranch ATH Brant Kuithe checks in at No. 118.

TexAgs Quarterback and Texas A&M commit Grant Gunnell holds on to his top spot in the 2019 Class rankings. Gunnell impressed analyst Ryan Brauninger with his performance at College Station.
In the 2019 class, quarterback Grant Gunnell keeps his hold on the No. 1 spot, and Brian Williams is the biggest mover in the top 10. The Bishop Dunne S slides from No. 4 to No. 9.

This update's ranking leaps come from the Houston area. RB Isaiah Spiller continues his upward trend, moving from No. 32 to No. 23, while CB Erick Young moves from No. 39 to the 28-spot.

Defensive end Braedon Mowry also makes a move up from No. 26 to No. 20, flipping spots with fellow defensive end Gilbert Ibeneme. Katy running back Deondrick Glass also moves down the list from No. 21 to No. 32.

In the new appearance department, there is only one new name. Dallas South Oak Cliff cornerback Bobby Holmes makes his debut at No. 57 after a strong start to 2017.

There were only a few minor tweaks to the 2020 list. RJ Mickens keeps his spot at No. 1 on the list, but IMG S Lejond Cavazos does shake up the top 5 by moving to No. 3 in the class. Rockwall wide receiver Jaxon Smith also makes his debut. He checks in at No. 24.
