SUMMER TOP 170: The Best of 2006!

As we work our way down from the top 275, here is the second list for the Class of 2006. These evaluations come from watching every player on this list at either camps, combines, games, practices and workouts. Film, in some cases, has been used as an enhancement only!

Here it is, the first day of summer, and what a better way to release our second look at the Class of 2006 than for it to be posted today!

While there are many lists out there, talking about the top prospects in the state of Florida, there is little doubt that this one comes from seeing more players live at camps, combines, spring practice, games and dropping by campuses during the late spring and the summer.

Between Charles Fishbein and Larry Blustein, they have covered over 3,000 miles since February 1 – traveling from Key West to Pensacola, watching film only as an enhancement and talking with up to 75 college coaches a week.

After spending the next few months attending more camps, practices and 7-on-7 events, we will trim this list down to 100 on August 1 – which is the first day of summer workouts.

Again, we invite your response on players you believe we should take a longer look at. Contact Charles Fishbein at CFishbein@aol.com or Larry Blustein at FloridaKids1@hotmail.com.
