Final preseason recruiting rankings for top prospects in Palm Beach County/Treasure Coast 

By Jeff Greer

With the high school kicking off this weekend, the preseason jostling for recruiting rankings is over. Here’s the final tally of each prospect’s ranking by the major recruiting sites.

I used 247Sports’ Composite rankings. While the site doesn’t say which outlets it uses in its explanation of the composite rankings, it does say several are involved (think ESPN, Scout, Rivals, etc.). Those rankings, then, should give us a fair look at how the top 15 Palm Beach County and T-Coast prospects fare against state and national prospects.

I listed our Big Board ranking first. You can access the first Class of 2014 Big Board here. It will be updated and expanded in September.
