The ESPNU 150 list for 2013 was released on Tuesday.
As expected, defensive end Robert Nkemdiche from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., is ranked the No. 1 player in the nation by ESPNU. Nkemdiche is uncommitted with Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and Clemson still in contention to land his services.
The nation’s No. 2 prospect, linebacker Reuben Foster from Auburn (Ala.) High School, is committed to Alabama. Foster is one of six ESPNU 150 members to have committed to the Crimson Tide for 2013.
Foster, who gave his pledge to Alabama in July, has continued to visit other schools, including Auburn and Georgia.
“I am a hard-core Alabama fan and loyal to my commitment,” Foster said. “They know I am looking at these other schools. The Alabama coaches always tell me they know where I know where my home is. People have to understand that I never thought something like this would happen to me. I don’t have the means to see some schools that I want to see. I want to check out USC. I would like to see South Carolina. I would like to visit some other schools but they are so far away.”
Florida leads the SEC with seven commitments on the ESPNU list. Defensive tackle Caleb Brantley from Crescent City (Fla.) High School is the highest-rated prospect committed to the Gators.
The SEC has a total of 28 commitments among five schools on the ESPNU list. Georgia (6 commitments), Texas A&M (5) and Auburn (4) are the other schools represented.
