June Jones and SMU have made it a point in the 2010 recruiting class that they are targeting some of the best talent in the nation. They have not been afraid to offer anyone up to this point. Earlier this week, Scout.com released its Top 300, and many recruits who are hearing from SMU made the list.

The state of Texas leads the way with 57 players included on the Top 300 list. As has been the case lately, wide receivers lead the way early this year with 57 in the Scout300. It is also a very strong year for defensive ends with 38 while just 12 middle linebackers are on the list.

Scout is not finished awarding four and five stars for the Class of 2010, and will continue to evaluate players throughout the country for inclusion on this prestigious list. Only 25 of the scheduled 50 five stars are currently have been given out while 200 of the scheduled 300 four stars are currently listed.

Included below, are the guys SMU is targeting in the 2010 recruiting class, that have made the early Scout.com lists.
