    Yep, it’s that time! The 2023 top 100 rankings came out and a few of our guys have made the cut.

    #5 QB Arch Manning 6’3” 195lbs
    #9 DE Brenan Vernon 6’5” 245lbs
    #16 TE/DE Brett Norfleet 6’7”220lbs
    #27 QB Tad Hudson 6’3” 195lbs
    #29 OT Alex Birchmeier 6’5” 265lbs
    #42 OT Nolan McConnell 6’6” 260lbs
    #61 LB Drayk Bowen 6’2” 192lbs
    #63 OT Monroe Freeling 6’6” 260lbs
    #64 TE Pearce Spurlin 6’6” 210lbs
    #75 ATH (RB/S) Trevor Carter 6’1” 190lbs
    #81 QB Dylan Lonergan 6’1” 195lbs
    #100 TE Mac Markway 6’4” 250lbs

    Not great but not terrible either, a lot of these guys already have fantastic size going into their sophomore years.

    Thanks for the list. I know this sounds cynical but it is the same list every stinking year.

    A scarcely scattered list made up of a few White quarterbacks, offensive linemen and tight ends with a couple of defensive players sprinkled in. And the athlete designation by Trevor Carter's name likely indicates a move to linebacker.

    Once again zero White wide receivers, running backs and defensive backs.

    The eternal hell known as caste continues uninterrupted year after year.

    The silver lining, if there is one, is that it is early in the game. I would hope to see White skill players emerge as this class of 2023 starts to physically mature in the next year or so.

    Looks like Ohio State is favorite to land Vernon. Continuing their trend of stud White DL.

    Legit kids in other B10 schools like Michigan , MSU Spartans, PSU, Wisconsin, THEY AT BEST A 3rd-rounder. Life finds a way.
    Winovich got picked on 3rd round but Gary was the 12nd pick? What a joke by these experts.

    Nice find! That kid is a monster, I’ll definitely be following his career from here on out.

    Finally a 2023 white WR sighting, Kevin Kasper’s son Kyler is the #13 ranked WR as of right now and #73 overall player. Tall and lanky 6’5” 185lbs, has an offer from Kevin’s alma mater Iowa in addition to Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Iowa State, Michigan State, Nebraska, Utah, and Vanderbilt.

    Georgia offered to Sammy Brown (2024 class), also Vols and NC.
    He's local kid and best freshman RB in the state.
