Not exactly a hotbed for FBS prospects, Minnesota has produced a pretty good 2013 talent pool that has attracted a handful of BCS schools to come into the North Star State.

The top five prospects in the state, headlined by four-star athlete James Onwualu (Saint Paul, Minn./Cretin-Derham Hall), are all going to BCS programs. Onwualu is headed to Notre Dame, and Iowa, Boston College, Wisconsin and Minnesota have all plucked a prospect from the state as well.

Surprisingly, not one prospect among the state's top five prospects is a lineman. Onwualu will play on offense, and the remaining four will all play in the defensive back seven.
