Version 1.0 of the 2017 NUC Sports Delaware State Rankings adds one new member increasing the State Ranking from a Top 6 to a Top 7.
Because of population Delaware is not considered a hotbed of recruiting at the FBS level. Last year the First State produced three DI signees. Over the last nine years the state has produced an average of 4.1 FBS signees per recruiting Cycle.
Signal caller Alex Barker is the only new addition. The transfer from Eastern Christian Academy (Md.) is playing his senior year at Caravel Academy. He will get a chance to show off his stuff early in the season playing two of the best programs in the state Concord and Salesianum.
This is the final version of the Delaware State Player Rankings for the class of 2017.
