You know how Spinal Tap's amplifiers go up to 11 -- "If we need that extra push over the cliff"?
Well, ESPN's Recruiting rankings now go up to 300 -- 150 is so five minutes ago.
Not only that, the folks over there decided to go ahead and rank the top 300 juniors, too.
The junior's list is a new thing, but it reflects how recruiting is skewing younger and younger. Everyone, including the prospects, is looking for an edge.
While a handful of those juniors already have committed, the lone Pac-12 verbal is safety Avery Anderson (Colorado Springs, Colo., Pine Creek High School), who says he's headed to Arizona State.
The biggest news is there's a defensive end on the list from my former high school, The Westminster School in Atlanta: defensive end Russell Ude. He's 293rd but clearly should be No. 1.
The top-rated West Coast junior is quarterback Josh Rosen of Saint John Bosco High in Bellflower, Calif.
In fact, there are only two players in the top-33 from the West Coast.
Golly, the Pac-12 is doomed.
