With the high school football season long behind us and now deep into spring camp evaluations, our scouts are ready to rank the top college football prospects across all grad classes.

All-class football rankings can be challenging given the various stages of physical maturity, but there will always be exceptional young talent. It is important to note that for prospects in the 2024 and 2025 classes, we considered the ceiling for both their physical and mental development. We also provided a player comparison for each of the 25 stars on our list.

To be clear, the prospects below don't yet have the skills of the established college football talents to whom they are compared, but they do have the potential to develop matching skill sets based on striking similarities in their overall traits.
