Where locals, state schools land on ESPN's first 2018 recruiting rankings



ESPN unveiled its first recruiting rankings for the class of 2018 this morning. Some highlights:

Miami has the country's No. 1 class, which isn't a surprise. Eleven of its 16 oral commitments are top-300 recruits. That's pretty good.

Florida State has the nation's No. 6 class, and the Gators are 17th.

The top local is Berkeley Prep offensive tackle Nick Petit-Frere. He's a four-star prospect and ESPN's No. 22 overall recruit. Others on the list are:

No. 40 Calvary Christian athlete Amari Burney

No. 121 Cambridge Christian offensive tackle Richard Gouraige

No. 130 Hillsborough cornerback Ken Montgomery

No. 156 Armwood defensive tackle Malcolm Lamar

No. 169 Armwood running back Brian Snead (Ohio State commit)

No. 186 Wesley Chapel cornerback Isaiah Bolden (FSU)

No. 196 Armwood receiver Warren Thompson
