Rivals.com released 100 players to watch for the class of 2009 earlier this week, a list that we've done earlier and earlier each year.
With more and more colleges scouting younger players, it's never too early to look ahead.
With that in mind, here are 10 players to watch in the class of 2010 (listed alphabetically):
Ten to Watch in 2010
Gideon Ajagbe, LB, 6-3, 186 Coconut Grove (Fla.) Ransom Everglades
Ajagbe is huge for his age (6 feet 3 and 186 pounds) and is projected to grow into a linebacker. He currently plays safety and running back. He has long arms, runs in the 4.6 range and has great closing speed. Ajagbe is a physical kid who is still growing into his body. If he continues to develop, he could be scary good.
Baxter is already on the radar of major programs, including USC. He can play running back, wide receiver or defensive back at the next level. He has impressive speed and game-breaking ability. He averaged more than 20 yards each time he touched the ball as a freshman and scored nine touchdowns.
Godfrey has become a prep legend following an impressive combine performance and some very good film clips on the Internet. Godfrey has one of the strongest arms you'll see on a freshman. He's the most heralded freshman since Noel Devine, and one of the most talented prospects in South Florida.
How do you get to be 6 feet 7 and 300 pounds by the time you're a freshman in high school? Gray knows, and his frame has college scouts drooling over him. Gray is the son of former Notre Dame offensive lineman Ian Gray Sr., so he obviously has excellent bloodlines.
As big as Gray is, Henderson is even bigger at the same stage. Henderson comes from a power program, and is also a standout in basketball and track. He won numerous events at the Minnesota Junior Olympics Outdoor Championships, and is already on the radar of Minnesota, Notre Dame, Ohio State and others.
You might recognize the last name. Jeffcoat is the son of former NFL star defensive lineman Jim Jeffcoat of the Dallas Cowboys. Jackson Jeffcoat (6-5, 215) is also a basketball standout and the top target of Texas A&M and Oklahoma in football for 2010.
Malcolm Jones, RB, 6-1, 215 Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian
Jones is the younger brother of USC 2007 signee Marshall Jones, and Malcolm has the same athletic upside. Jones could play running back or linebacker in college. He filled in for the injured Marc Tyler last year when Tyler missed the playoffs because of injury.
Mills has run a 10.79-second 100 meters. He ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash at the NationalUnderclassmen.com Ultimate 100 in June and was one of the offensive standouts. Mills will see his first varsity action this season. He is expected to be one of the fastest players to come out of Oklahoma in years.
Roback has excellent size already at 6 feet 2 and 200 pounds. In 2006 he was a national finalist in the Pepsi Punt, Pass and Kick competition and is an outstanding athlete ? he runs better than 4.8 in the 40-yard dash. He was the quarterback MVP at the NationalUnderclassmen.com Ultimate 100 in June.
Watts has a twin brother, Tyren, who is also going to be an excellent player. Kyren is 6 feet 2 and 185 pounds and runs a 4.7-second 40-yard dash. He won the wide receiver MVP award at the NationalUnderclassmen.com showcase in Dallas/Fort Worth by dominating the one-on-ones and making several highlight reel catches.
