It's time to find out who the Top 60 players are in the West region of the country according to the National Underclassmen. The states included in the West rankings are AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, MT, ND, NV, OR, SD, UT, WA and WY. Each player is taken straight from their respective State Rankings.  The prospects listed below are worth one point towards his eventual signing day teams recruiting ranking. The players are listed in alphabetical order by first name.
Of the Top 60 players 15 of them are considered alumnus having participated in at least one NUC sponsored event. California leads the way with 32 prospects in the initial West Top 60. Arizona is next with seven followed by Oregon and Utah with four each. Colorado and Washington have three representatives while Hawaii, Idaho, and Nevada place two players a piece in the West Top 60. Yes! Wyoming has one representative this year.
We look forward to updating the West Top 60 two more times prior to signing day. The regional rankings directly affect the NUC team recruiting rankings. Several of the players listed below will make the NUC Ultimate 175 (The top 175 players in the country). These prospects will be worth an additional half point towards his signing day schools recruiting ranking.
