We will soon be releasing our 2015 rankings by position, and here we take a look at the top athletes within the State of Washington. This list will change a great deal over the coming season with a lot of talented juniors getting PT. These individuals are ordered based on college projection and not what has been accomplished thus far.
There are many other athletes that are worthy of being mentioned and that you will see ranked on our positional breakdown. Please let us know of any individuals who we may have missed as we are always evaluating talent.
**As always a big thanks to Ryland Spencer and Scott Enyeart for their insight into this list, and all of the outstanding work they do within the Northwest**
Good luck to all,
