Bossi's Phat Phifty for 2005

After several changes and plenty of indecision, here it is my early top 50 for the class of 2005. Keep in mind that it is still a bit early and there are plenty of kids out there who either haven't emerged or I just haven't had a good enough look at them to feel comfortable ranking them. In other words, there are sure to be some major changes between now and next fall.

As always, this list is done for fun and is in no way meant to slight anybody and should not be taken as gospel. If you have any questions, comments or thoughts regarding the list take them to the message board or send me an email at .
