In years past, I ranked the players from 1-20 and so on. This year I'm doing something a bit different. I will rank my top five from the season, then include a list of the "best of the rest." I found that once I get past the top five, ranking the other's took a while and I had a hard time differentiating between the 11th best player and the 17th.

Also, I need to remind you that this is NOT a top prospect list. My list is simply my rankings of who simply had the best season's, regardless of school, team, or prospect status.
