RecruitingNation released its initial rankings for the Class of 2015 earlier this week, and even though this crop of recruits can't sign letters of intent until Feb. 4, 2015, there's no shortage of storylines worth following. Reading the minds of high school students is next to impossible, and is even more complicated when talking about players still two years away from signing, but here are some bold predictions for the Class of 2015.
The nation's best player will land at Notre Dame. Jashon Cornell, the No. 1 player in the ESPN Junior 300, is well aware of the tradition. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound four-star defensive end from St. Paul Cretin-Derham Hall knows that players at his high school have traditionally landed at Notre Dame. It has happened so much that it can't just be called a tradition.
