On3 has released the final football prospect rankings for the 2022 recruiting cycle, and that list includes 37 new additions to the On300.

The On300 is updated on a regular schedule over the course of the year to get to the final prospect rankings in the cycle. 

Our goal is to assess a prospect’s long-term potential in college football, as manifested by the NFL Draft. We rate 32 five-stars prospects and over 350 four-stars in every cycle. 

The junior season for the 2022 cycle was disjointed for many prospects. Some states had delayed starts to the season, some played an abbreviated spring schedule and some didn’t play at all. As a result, we began this cycle with a fairly uneven junior season sample for a good chunk of the 2022 prospects. That made the senior season, and all-star circuit even more important than ever before for a cycle of prospects. 

On300 new addition headliners

Trevion Williams, EDGE, Crystal Springs (Miss.) Crystal Springs

On300 ranking: No. 86

The Mississippi State signee jumped out during the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Game week. At 6-foot-3 and near 255-pounds, Williams possesses high-end strength and explosive athletic ability. Williams won with both speed and power in a raw way in Hattiesburg during the week. The Bulldogs inked an EDGE prospect with a very high-ceiling that will enter college with a ready to play frame. 

Ethan Burke, EDGE, Austin (Texas) Westlake

On300 ranking: No. 129

Burke literally burst onto the scene as a senior. The Texas signee and Michigan flip was one of the top lacrosse prospects in the country prior to shifting focus to football. At nearly 6-foot-7 and 220 pounds with fast-twitch athletic ability, Burke possesses a very high ceiling as an edge rusher. Add in an 83-inch wingspan, flexibility, a motor and physical mindset and the Longhorns signed a much needed upside EDGE prospect. 

Daequan Wright, TE, Perry (Ga.) Perry 

On300 ranking: No. 153

The Virginia Tech commitment is one of the best kept secrets in the Peach State. More of a pure athlete at this stage, the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder projects to tight end long term. He not necessarily explosive off the line, but he possesses the speed to stretch the field vertically at tight end. And his career best 100-meter time of 11.14 further illustrates that speed. Wright is body quick and reactive mover with a big catch radius as well. His agility and athleticism also show up on the hardwood averaging nearly a 20 point, 10 rebound per game double-double. 

Caleb Douglas, WR, Missouri City (Texas) Hightower

On300 ranking: No. 165

The 6-foot-4 long-armed receiver is one of the most coveted unsigned prospects remaining in the 2022 cycle. A senior season showed improved foot quickness to go with extended arms snatches and improved ability after the catch. Despite his height, he turns up the field quickly to maximize yards after the catch. Florida leads LSU for the talented 4-star from the Houston area due to a strong bond with Keary Colbert.

Trevon McAlpine, DL, Saraland (Ala.) Saraland High

On300 ranking: No. 167

The Texas Tech Red Raiders scored a huge win out of the Southeast Region when McAlpine signed. The 6-foot-2, near 285 pounder was extremely impressive during the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Game week. His first step is high-end, and his ability to strike with power really stood out at practices. Playing strength, bend and reactive quickness were also clearly evident in the in person evaluation setting. The one-time TCU verbal will be an impact player in Lubbock.
