States such as California, Texas and Florida generate a wealth of gridiron talent every year. Alabama and Georgia are not far behind.

An offensive lineman with toughness does a great job of representing Kansas, while a pair of linebackers from Illinois are terrors on defense. Also, two recruits from Missouri make the cut.
