If defense wins championships, then the Class of 2012 from the state of Virginia could be a contender because the rising senior class in the Commonwealth is heavy with defensive standouts and deeper on that side of the ball.

The glamour position among the ranked prospects is defensive line where players with their hands in the dirt occupy the number 2, 4, 7, 11, 13 and 19 spots and they are closely followed by a strong corps of linebackers who hold down the 6, 8, 10, 12 and 18 positions. In total, that means that over half of the top twenty players ranked play in the defensive front seven.

One of the biggest leap up the rankings from the initial VirginiaPreps.com rankings belongs to Briar Woods cornerback Alex Carter who moved from #24 in the February release but has jumped to the #3 spot here in June after impressing at combines throughout the state and committing to Stanford University.

Among the offensive weapons in the class, both Clover Hill's Joel Caleb and Oscar Smith's J.C. Coleman were expected to rank among the most highly-recruited prospects in the state and each held their positions in June rankings with Caleb at the top spot and Coleman in the #5 position.
