Where Do College Football Players Come From?

A look at which high schools across the country have a reputation for producing college-football-ready talent.

We’ll never stop loving National Signing Day. That said, now is as good a time as ever to take a look at which high schools across the country have a reputation for producing college-football-ready talent.

Using 247Sports’ composite data, we broke the country into four key regions and compiled a list of the top five schools producing the highest-rated recruits since 2000. We included a few of the most viewed player highlights so you can see the caliber of athletes coming from these schools.

Junipero Serra’s Most Popular Player Highlight - Oluwole Betiku

St. Edward’s Most Popular Player Highlight - Tony Butler

St. Thomas Aquinas’ Most Popular Player Highlight - Nick Bosa

Don Bosco Prep’s Most Popular Player Highlight - Malik Bakker

What does this all mean? The schools and regions that have built a reputation for producing top talent are high-priority locations for recruiters. For those athletes situated in parts of the country with minimal exposure, it’s more important than ever to get their names out there.

Hudl has partnered with Nike to provide a platform for all athletes around the country to get noticed. With Hudl Combine, players can prove their athletic prowess by sharing footage of their vertical, 40-yard dash, agility shuttle, and power ball toss or bench press with recruiters and peers alike.

Post a good enough rating and recruits can score an invite to Nike’s premiere football camp, The Opening, or simply attract extra attention from recruiters. Now that we’ve leveled the playing field, athletes from across the nation can put their high schools on the map by putting up exceptional numbers and outperforming their peers.

Think you have what it takes to rep your school at the next level? Hit us up in the comments with your best highlight or post any questions you might have. We’re here to help you get noticed.
