NCF On The Trail: ESPN 150

ESPN 150 player rankings chat

The ESPN 150 and the top 15 teams in the class rankings were released on Thursday. Senior national recruiting analyst Tom Luginbill and recruiting analyst Craig Haubert will be here to answer your questions about how the list was compiled. Also joining us will be RecruitingNation writers Jared Shanker, Derek Tyson, Damon Sayles and Erik McKinney.

Things get started at 11 a.m. ET Friday, so make sure to join us in breaking down the list.
