NCAA – Final 2013 Recruiting Rankings – North Carolina On Top Again

I will say this: The gap between North Carolina at the top and Stanford at #2 was pretty much negligible. It’s a situation where you could easily label the Card as ‘1a’ before a pretty sizable gap to UCLA at #3 and then another big drop to #4 and beyond.

      They have to hit a certain “point threshold” as I’m adding up accomplishments for the rankings. Can’t point to what exactly separates a five-star prospect from the rest, but youth international (or full international) experience is almost a given.

    NC State signed Sweden’s U18 World Cup goalkeeper Greta Akerlind. She’ll be one of the best keepers in the country by her junior season.
