If you watched Tampa Plant get crushed by Manatee Friday night on national television, you probably wonder why James Wilder is rated as the No. 1 player in the nation, even in the Tampa area. But, trust me, Wilder is the real deal.
The 6-2, 220-pounder with 4.5 speed is one of the three best running backs in the country and the best linebacker. He recently committed to Florida State, the school's biggest recruiting coup in years, the best since Urban Meyer arrived at Florida. He is a difference-maker on offense and defense. Whichever position he chooses to play in college, he will be a standout.
So who are the top players in the country by position?
