Virginia's Class of 2013 football prospects well stocked!

The first thing that jumps out of the initial release of the prospect rankings for the Class of 2013 is that the quarterback position, long a staple of Virginia, is restocked after not producing a national level player from the 2012 class. Both Bucky Hodges (Salem) and Ryan Burns (Stone Bridge) rank in the top five in the Commonwealth and neither is likely to move too far down the list over the course of the next two seasons. Both possess the physical make up and have all the skill sets that college recruiters seek in a field general.

However, it is the defense which will likely hold the top spot in the rankings as Hytlon's E.J. Levenberry Jr. (C.D. Hylton) has long ago become a national level recruit and analysts already feel comfortable comparing him to Hermitage linebacker Curtis Grant, the nation's number one linebacker from the Class of 2011 group.

The Richmond area seems particularly loaded in the rising junior class as eight of the top twenty prospects currently ranked come from the Central Region with one other playing at a Richmond-based private school. Certainly this list will change as more and more players are unearthed but folks in the state's capital are destined to see an outstanding product on the field for the next two seasons.
