    The Scout.com National Hot 100 - Scout

    The Scout.com National Hot 100
    By Jamie Newberg National Recruiting Analyst
    Date: Jan 25, 2005

    The Scout.com National Hot 100 is now set for the final time and we have a new number one. Is it Mark Sanchez, Ryan Perrilloux or Fred Rouse?

    The final version of The Scout.com National Hot 100 is led by a new No. 1, quarterback Mark Sanchez from Mission Viejo (Calif.) High School. Sanchez is committed to Southern Cal and he held off quarterback Ryan Perrilloux and others for the top spot.

    There were many shakeups at different positions as well. Antone Smith is now the No. 1 rated running back, Patrick Turner is the top rated wide receiver, Tony Moeaki is the top tight end, DeMarcus Granger is the top rated defensive tackle, Travis Beckum is the No. 1 defensive end and Demetrice Morley is the top rated defensive back in the nation.

    Sanchez is the third prospect atop The Scout.com National Hot 100 this season. Derrick Williams (Penn State) was our pre-season No. 1 prospect and then it was Fred Rouse (Tallahassee, Fla.). Here is a quick look at the top 10:

    2) QB Ryan Perrilloux (Texas soft commitment)
    3) OT Eugene Monroe (Virginia)
    4) WR Patrick Turner (Southern Cal)
    5) DB Demetrice Morely (Tennessee)
    6) WR Fred Rouse
    7) LB Tray Blackmon (Auburn)
    8) WR Derrick Williams (Penn State)
    9) DT DeMarcus Granger
    10) S Kenneth Phillips

    Those were not the only changes. As you know the top 50 prospects in the country receive five-stars. Some players moved into five-star range and some slid down. Others moved into the national 100 like wide receivers Trey Stross and Mohamed Massaquoi, safeties Will Harris and Shawn Oatis, cornerbacks Carlos Thomas and Derek Pegues and defensive lineman Earl Heyman.

    The Scout.com National Hot 100 is compiled by myself and Allen Wallace.

    With verbals elsewhere over the weekend by Kyle McCarthy and Tavares Kearney, it appeared that Ohio State's recruiting efforts had been narrowed down to three targets. However, another has appeared on the recruiting radar, as Chagrin Falls, Ohio, wide receiver Brian Robiskie received an offer from the Buckeyes late last week. But though the offer just came through, OSU has had its eye on Robiskie for some time.

    In the middle of the 2004-05 recruiting season, Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel got a piece of good news and it had absolutely nothing to do with high school prospects. It has long been thought that redshirt sophomore flanker Santonio Holmes might want to test his pro potential. But the deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NFL draft has come and gone and Holmes remains a Buckeye.

    See It To Believe It - Scout

    See It To Believe It
    By Jamie Newberg National Recruiting Analyst
    Date: Jan 26, 2005

    Here we are, a week before National Signing Day and I just witnessed the most impressive film of all for any prospect among the Class of 2005. It was Ryan Perrilloux's senior highlight film and 20 minutes worth. Here are four long video packages. You have to see it to believe it.

    Scout.com just released it's National Top 100, where Ryan Perrilloux found himself sitting No. 2 overall and at the quarterback position. He is behind his good friend, quarterback Mark Sanchez from Mission Viejo, Calif.

    The two are so different yet so a like. They both exude confidence, are terrific leaders and field generals. They command respect. Physically, they don't compare. Sanchez is talented, has a good arm and moves well enough. Physically, Perrilloux is off the charts. Where Sanchez has the edge over Perrilloux right now is the mental side of the game. He makes quicker and more decisive decisions with the ball.

    As far as upside, no one in the nation has more than Ryan Perrilloux. If you don't believe me, than watch the video for yourself. Perrilloux, from LaPlace (La.) East St. John High School, is an amazing talent blessed with the best arm in the country. He is not Michael Vick running the ball but he has some very similiar traits. Most of all, you can't lay a hand on him in the pocket.

    Perrilloux had an incredible senior season, passing for 3,546 yards (225/342) and 30 touchdown passes and running for 1,460 yards (226 carries) and 37 touchdowns. He accounted for 69 total touchdowns and finished his career second in total yards behind Brock Berlin with 12,705 yards.

    ScoutTV proudly presents four video highlight packages of the nation's No. 2 prospect, Ryan Perrilloux. It is courtesy of Versatile Productions.

    Why did Tavares Kearney pick the home state Bulldogs?

    "The coaches are great. I thought the facilities were great and I really liked the new linebacker coach."
