Feeling good about your knowledge of the 2014 class? Looking for some beach reading and a chance to get ahead this summer? Well, you're in luck, because you can get a jump on the 2015 class with the release of the initial ESPN Junior 300. As you begin to look over these rankings and get a feel for some of the talented prospects who will be available, here are 10 things to know about the 2015 class:
Back to the top: Regardless of the year, a good place to start is at the top. As always, we put a premium on certain impact positions when assembling rankings -- quarterbacks, defensive linemen, offensive tackles and cornerbacks -- and previous player rankings have reflected that. The 2015 player rankings reflect that as well with DE Jashon Cornell (St. Paul, Minn./Cretin-Derham Hall) earning the top spot. The battle for the top spot for 2015 is in the very early stages, but as in 2011 with Jadeveon Clowney, 2012 with Mario Edwards and 2013 with Robert Nkemdiche, a defensive end tops the ESPN 300.
