Bossi's Mid-Summer Rankings

<p>Heading into the July summer camps, Eric Bossi provides his latest 2005 rankings, and he includes an early look at his 2006 list.</p>


Back in early June, I released a pre summer listing of the players who I felt were the top 50 prospects in the country for the class of 2005. In the past I have waited until mid August or early September to update my rankings and expand to a top 100 list.

This year, I have decided to mix things up a little bit. With the July evaluation period jumping off this week as Nike, Adidas and Reebok all hold their “All-American” camps, I thought it would be a good time to go ahead and expand my list to a top 100. As an added bonus I have also decided to include an early look at a top 25 for the class of 2006.

As always, the list is done for fun and to generate a little bit of a discussion. Keep in mind that I won’t list anybody that I haven’t seen. As you can see, there have already been a few major changes since the beginning of June and there are sure to be more shakeups by the end of the summer.
