Updated - 11/14/16 - Class of 2017 Top Football Player Rankings (Next and Final Update - December 1, 2016)

 

Welcome to our Massachusetts Prep Stars Class of 2017 Football Ranking List.

The 2017 rankings are based on a combination of college potential, on-field performance, improvements, athletic intangibles, team influence, college recruiting, and overall skill set. Our rankings do favor the college recruiting process and the college football potential of the student-athlete. The rankings are also an accumulation of some of the most valued (coach, media, scout) high school sources in Massachusetts.

The rankings include only players playing at a Massachusetts High School / NEPSAC School. Postgrads and Mass. residents playing at schools outside of Mass. are also recognized below.

Our updated rankings list features 35 profiled student-athletes, as well as an alphabetical list of others who have caught the eyes of Mass Prep Stars in 2016 and over the course of their high school careers and off-seasons.

Please continue to assist us by recommending additions for our final 2016 rankings and list and for future lists and rankings (including our 2018 watch-list/pre-ranking) by emailing massprepstars@hotmail.com

Please also complete and update your Athlete Profile by clicking on this link and complete all the information to be profiled on massprepstars.com
