The Final 2014 East 150

Jabrill Peppers takes a look at the final East 150 rankings in the 2014 recruiting class.

The final version of the East 150 has the same feel as the initial East 150, and that is laden with a lot of Virginia prospects from one of the deepest classes in years.

Also, there are nine uncommitted prospects remaining in the East 150, which includes four five-star prospects and 38 more with four stars.

The region proved to be resourceful for plenty of schools as 34 programs, including Princeton, received a commitment from at least one member of the East 150. The leader of the group is Virginia Tech, which has the most prospects committed with 14.

Paramus (N.J.) Catholic cornerback Jabrill Peppers, who is committed to Michigan, retained his hold on the top in the region and is one of the five-star players. Virginia has commitments from a pair of five-star players in Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith defensive tackle Andrew Brown and Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside safety Quin Blanding. The other five-star, defensive end Da'Shawn Hand of Woodbridge (Va.) High, is committed to Alabama.

Florida commit Jalen Tabor, a cornerback from Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate, is the top-ranked four-star prospect in the Scout 300.

While Virginia Tech had the most success recruiting players in the East 150, Penn State also did a nice job despite the coaching change and has 12 members. Rutgers, despite its spat of decommitments, and Pittsburgh each have nine in the group, West Virginia, Syracuse and Virginia each have six, and Maryland has five.

When it came to pulling kids to outside of the region, Michigan led the way with six. Florida State and Notre Dame also did well by getting five commitments on the East 150.
