On3 has updated the football prospect rankings for the 2022 cycle. The On300 includes 27 linebackers. On3’s 2022 linebacker rankings are listed below.

This update is based on the evaluation of the first half of most prospects’ senior season. Our goal is to assess a prospect’s long-term potential in college football, ultimately manifested by the NFL Draft. The aim of this initial release is to set the table prior to the all-important senior season.

Each linebacker prospect is listed with their On3 grade, hometown, high school and commitment status if applicable.

The rating scale is as follows: Five-star prospects have grades 98-100, four-star recruits have grades 90-97, while 80-89 grades are for three-stars. The On300 is comprised strictly of five-star and four-star prospects.
