Following the latest release of the 2025 On300, the On3 Industry Ranking has updated, as have the five-star recruits in it.

With the summer heating up and official visit season now complete, the On3 Industry Ranking features 32 five-stars to reflect the numbers of players selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.

The On3 Industry Ranking is a proprietary algorithm that compiles ratings and rankings from all four primary recruiting media services. It is also the industry’s most advanced, complete and unbiased measurement.

It weights the primary recruiting media services based on past performance data, and overall scouting and recruiting coverage investment. For football, the algorithm is weighted as follows: On3 (35%), 247Sports (35%), Rivals.com (20%) and ESPN (10%). 

After the latest update, those 32 prospects are listed below:

Just scratching the surface of his considerable potential and could challenge as the top tackle in the 2025 cycle with continued development.”

17. RB Harlem Berry — LSU commit

School: Metairie (La.) St. Martin’s Episcopal
Scouting Summary:Harlem Berry is the most electric running back in the 2025 cycle. Possesses elite burst and effortless movement skills. Measured in at over 5-foot-10 and around 180 pounds prior to his junior season. Registers as a high end athlete with elite speed on the track and in the combine setting. Won state titles in the 100 and 200 meters as a sophomore with times of 10.57 seconds and 21.43 seconds, respectively.

The game moves slow for him at the prep level.

“Runs through contact and shows balance that belies his size. Catches the ball well out of the backfield and projects as a viable option on passing downs. Highly productive as a sophomore, rushing for 2,237 yards and 37 touchdowns at 11.5 yards per carry and is continuing to play at a high level midway through his junior season.

20. EDGE Isaiah Gibson — Georgia commit

School: Warner Robins (Ga.)
Scout’s Take:Isaiah Gibson is one of the freakier prospects along the defensive front in the 2025 cycle. The Warner Robins (Ga.) High product measured in at the On3 Elite Series at 6-foot-3.25, 263 pounds with 35-inch arms and close to a 7-foot-2 wing span. Gibson is a top-shelf athlete at that size, running in the 4.7’s at Under Armour’s Atlanta camp. The high-end physical traits show up on the field, where the Georgia pledge lines up as a jumbo pass rusher.

“Though he figures to have competition as the top EDGE prospect in the cycle, Gibson could continue to make a strong case with improved consistency as a senior.

21. SAF Trey McNutt — Uncommitted

School: Shaker Heights (Ohio)
Scouting Summary:Trey McNutt is a rangy safety prospect who has the ability come downhill and be a force player in the run game, play center field as a single high safety, or match up in man to man in the slot. Tremendous versatility in the secondary at the next level and beyond. Physical and violent player, not afraid to stick his head into traffic and make plays around the line of scrimmage. Excellent burst and trigger out of his backpedal.

“Strong ability to read and diagnose what offenses are doing in front of him. Need to see more from him in terms of ball production, but has excellent ball skills and ability to high point the football. Excellent upside with a frame that should be able to fill out with ease in a collegiate strength and conditioning program.”

22. TE Elyiss Williams — Georgia commit

School: Folkston (Ga.) Camden County
Scouting Summary:Elyiss Williams has a rare combination of athleticism and size for the tight end position. Stands in at nearly 6-foot-7 with crazy bounce and ability to play above the rim which stems from his dominance on the hardwood. Smooth mover in space that can win vertically up the seam with his top-end speed. Has the fluidity and looseness in his hips in order to win in intermediate routes as well. Physical and more than willing blocker at the line of scrimmage. Plays with tenacity and ferocity at the point of attack.

“Comfortable pass catcher but will need to get stronger catching the ball away from his frame more consistently. Has all the physical and athletic tools that offensive coaches covet at the position. Extremely high upside prospect.”

23. LB Zayden Walker — Georgia commit

School: Ellaville (Ga.) Schley County
Scouting Summary: “Zayden Walker was the early front-runner for top EDGE prospect in the 2025 cycle as a rising junior. An unverified 6-foot-2, 220 pounds. Flashes a high-end combination of on-field athleticism and functional play strength. Lines up in both two and three-point stances off the edge. Shows noticeable first-step quickness off the snap. Very strong at the point of attack. Plays with excellent leverage and uses his strong lower body to move offensive linemen both as a bull rusher and run defender.

“Makes some eye-popping plays in pursuit, showcasing high-end athleticism in tracking down ball carriers from the back side. Doubles as a dangerous running back, using his athleticism and strength to pick up yards after contact. Helped his team to a state title appearance as a sophomore.”

24. QB Husan Longstreet — Texas A&M commit

School: Corona (Calif.) Centennial
Scout’s Take: “Texas A&M pledge Husan Longstreet touts arguably the strongest arm in the cycle. Longstreet has an absolute bazooka. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder’s explosive arm talent is among the best we’ve seen at the Elite 11 Finals over the past few years. Longstreet is a twitched-up passer and mover. The Texas A&M commit can rip fastballs, but showed some improved accuracy and ability to layer the football at the Elite 11 Finals.

25. QB George MacIntyre — Tennessee commit

George MacIntyre-Tennessee football-Tennessee Volunteers-NIL

School: Nashville Brentwood Academy
Scouting Summary:George MacIntyre measured in at 6-foot-2, 170 pounds during summer campus visits. George MacIntyre- Tall signal caller with strong projectable tools as a passer and playmaker.

Touts a tight, compact throwing motion with little moving parts. The release is whippy quick. Flashes good arm strength, with the ability to flick passes out to the boundary and downfield.

Capable of making high-level second-reaction plays. Has strong improvisational skills. Shows a long stride in the open field.

“Doubles as a high-level high school basketball player and received high major looks as an underclassman. Plays a tough schedule, but does not have the production or efficiency typical of an elite quarterback prospect. High school team struggled in his junior season. Will need to continue making strides as a player on Friday night and adding weight to his frame, but has the potential to be one of the top quarterbacks to come out of the 2025 cycle.”

26. ATH Michael Terry III — Uncommitted

School: San Antonio Alamo Heights
Scouting Summary:Michael Terry is a true do-it-all football player who could project at a high level at upwards of four or five positions at the next level. Has lined up as a receiver, running back, quarterback and cornerback for his high school team. Measured in at around 6-foot-3, 215 pounds with good length. Registers as a strong athlete in track and field posting 6-4 foot high jump and wind-aided 10.83-second mark in the 100 meters as a sophomore. Transfers that athleticism to the field, where he is one of the more impactful jumbo athletes in the cycle on Friday nights. Shows the ability to separate and make plays at the catch point at wide receiver. A nimble ball carrier with the ability to pull away when he lines up at running back.

“Could potentially grow into a jack-of-all-trades offensive weapon capable of lining up in the backfield, split out wide or as an H-Back. Also an intriguing option as a back seven defender. Has a linebacker frame with corner athleticism and fluidity. Has true positional ambiguity but an extremely versatile and useful skill set. Will need to hone in on one position and add technical skill as he’s yet to focus at one spot.”

27. IOL Josh Petty — Uncommitted

School: Roswell (Ga.) Fellowship Christian
Scouting Summary:Josh Petty is an athletic, physical offensive lineman with considerable developmental upside. Measured in at 6-foot-4, 265 pounds with 33.5-inch arms prior to his junior season. Two-way standout working at offensive tackle and defensive end for his high school. Shows high-end movement skills. Easily works to the second level. Light on his feet and moves with fluidity. Operates with a high level of conditioning playing on both sides of the ball. Good enough of an athlete to play on defense in college, though his upside is highest on the offensive line. Plays with a high effort level and physicality. Works to finish blocks with authority, driving defensive linemen to the sideline at times. Shows strong flexibility and core strength, coming off the ball low and firing through his hips. More advanced as a run blocker than pass protector at this time, but has the athletic ability to pass block at a high level with further development.

“A strong wrestler, finishing as the state runner-up as a sophomore. Also throws the shot put with a personal best of 40-8.5 feet as a sophomore. Faces a lower level of competition at the high school level. Could ultimately project at tackle or slide inside. Will need to continue adding good mass to his frame. Younger for the cycle, with an August birthday. Could feasibly be a 2026 prospect from an age perspective.”

28. WR Dallas Wilson — Oregon commit

School: Tampa Bay Tech
Scouting Summary:Dallas Wilson is a twitchy wide receiver with the ability to win at the catch point and some of the best after-catch ability in the cycle. Measured in at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds with good length prior to his junior season. A good athlete who runs well in the combine setting. Shows a well-rounded skill set on Friday nights. A functional athlete who has a noticeable bounce in his movement. Shows quick feet with the ability to cut on a dime. Physical and flashes strong hands at the catch point. Attacks the ball in high-point situations. Outstanding after the catch. Sticks his foot in the ground and gets upfield quickly.

“Has great contact balance and breaks arm tackles. Dangerous when working underneath and over the middle of the field. Caught 49 passes for 879 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior. Will need to continue adding polish to his game. Projects as a versatile X receiver with the ability to threaten all areas of the field.”

29. QB Matt Zollers — Missouri commit

School: Royersford (Pa.) Spring-Ford
Scouting Summary:Matt Zollers looked like the top playmaker among 2025 quarterbacks on junior film and continued to show his physical skill set throughout the offseason. The 6-foot-3.5, 203-pounder has a live, loose arm and high-end movement skills. We saw the arm talent on display at the Elite 11 Finals. While there is room for improvement with his overall consistency, we viewed Zollers’ showing as more impressive than initially thought after reviewing video from the camp. The Missouri commit excels in live settings.

“We saw this during the 7-on-7 portion of the Elite 11 Finals when he threw six touchdowns, tying for the most on the day. As one of the few current multi-sport athletes among top 2025 quarterbacks, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the consistency improve once he fully focuses on football.”

30. TE Linkon Cure — Kansas State commit

Lines up both split out and in-line on offense. Shows a large catch radius.

“Contorts his body to make high-level grabs. Comes down with contested catches in traffic. Has the ability to take it to the house after the catch. Also plays defense. Looks like a man amongst boys. How he measures and looks in a neutral setting will add much more clarity to his evaluation given the lower level of competition he faces.”

31. CB Dijon Lee — Alabama commit

School: Mission Viejo (Calif.)
Scouting Summary:Dijon Lee is a fluid and long-limbed corner prospect who can turn and mirror wide receivers at the highest level. Extremely impressive physical specimen for the position measuring in at 6-foot-4, 185 pounds during summer campus visits. Tested well in explosive drills during camp settings. Testing translates to the track as well jumping 20-foot-10 in the long jump and 44-foot-6 in the triple jump during his sophomore track and field season.

“High points and breaks up passes with his length and reactive quickness. Solid run support defender who is more than willing to play downhill. Upside is tremendous. Could potentially kick to safety down the line if he adds significant mass.”

32. DL Iose Epenesa — Uncommitted

School: Edwardsville (Ill.)
Recruiting Summary: Iose Epenesa is the brother of former Iowa star and current Buffalo Bills defensive lineman A.J. Epenesa. His father and other brother Eric also played in Iowa City. But he’s no sure thing to join the family legacy.

This summer, Epenesa took official visits to Iowa, as well as Missouri, Penn State, Utah and Miami. According to On3’s Steve Wiltfong, the Hurricanes Utes are “two programs that definitely have the attention” of Epenesa as he looks to move toward a decision later this summer or early into the fall.
