January, 18, 2013
By RecruitingNation | ESPN.com
RecruitingNation has been ranking the top 10 battles for elite college football recruits for the past few months, but now it's time to switch things up a bit. Instead of pitting the top athletes against each other, this week we rank the top 10 states that have historically housed the most and most sought-after prospects to discover which is the best and which states will be the future hotbeds for elite talent.
Use the hashtag #BlueChipBattles to comment on the list, make a prediction or if you disagree with anything we say. Your tweet could end up on that week's page. And you can rank the top recruiting hotbeds in SportsNation.
