Recruiting rankings: Where are state schools and locals among Rivals' final 250?



Rivals made its final updates to its top 250 list for the recruiting class of 2016.

Some of the notable changes:

Tampa Catholic WR Nate Craig-Myers (uncommitted) lost his fifth star. The site now considers him the No. 35 recruit nationally.

Former Boca Ciega/Lakewood DB Saivion Smith (LSU) is No. 80, and current IMG Academy teammate DL Shavar Manuel - a Florida commit and former Blake High standout - is No. 110.

Plant City WR T.J. Chase (Clemson) fell 71 spots, to No. 115.

WR Josh Hammond - a Gators commit from Hallandale - was one of the biggest risers, jumping from unranked to No. 160.

Florida State had the most players on the list among the state's schools. The Seminoles had nine, led by five-star DB Levonta Taylor (No. 10) and four-star QB Malik Henry (34). The Gators' six included new five-star DE Antonneous Clayton (27) and four-star QB Feleipe Franks (57). Miami also has six commitments from the list, including QB Jack Allison (205) and WR Sam Bruce (47).
