2017 Massachusetts Football Rankings

#1
Position: RB
Spec: 6-foot-1, 240 lbs.
School: Boston College
Notes: The 2015 Mass Prep Stars Prep Player of the Year was hampered by injury in 2016, but still proived to be the top player in the class based on his stellar play throughout his career. The BC commit has it all, as he combines speed, quickness, and toughness, with an incredible football IQ at the RB position. The Connecticut native should be fun to watch early at the Heights..

Updated - 2/19/16 - Final Class of 2017 Top Football Player Rankings

 

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 a combination 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 final 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 players for the classes of 2018 and beyond rankings by emailing massprepstars@hotmail.com
