Making the biggest moves in the rankings as we head into the fall is Honolulu (Hawaii) Pac-5 defensive end Aaron Tipoti, who moved to #33, Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw cornerback Clint Floyd and Fresno (Calif.) Hoover linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who all moved into the rankings for the first time.
