Notes:

  • There have been four consensus No. 1 overall choices (a 1.000 rating). Two in the first two years of the composite (2002, 2003) and two out of the past three classes (2011, 2013).
  • There are five wide receivers in the top 25, tied for the most of any position (QB). This does not include Ted Ginn Jr., who was listed as a cornerback in the rankings.
  • Defensive ends had four total, each ranked in the top six positions.
  • 2005’s No. 1 recruits (tied) Eugene Monroe and Patrick Turner came in at 15th overall, the lowest No. 1 overalls in the top 25.
  • USC has five in the top 25. Alabama has three.
  • There are currently three 2014 prospects that would make this list (Cameron Robinson, Leonard Fournette and Jabrill Peppers). Those additions would knock Clausen, Henderson, Sanchez and Williams out of the top 25.
