12 Louisiana players in 2014 Top247

The newest edition of the Top247 was kind to Louisiana, tabbing the state as one of the most talent-rich in the country with 12 prospects on the list.

Frank Wilson works out Leonard Fournette - the No. 1 RB for 2014

Only five states saw more homegrown talent make the list in Florida (31), Texas (28), California (24), Georgia (22) and Ohio (17).

The group also saw five newcomers added since the last release of the Top247, a push into double-digits that has the country's coaches buzzing about talent in Louisiana, once again.

Here is the rundown of the list:

Cameron Robinson - OT - 6-5.5/330 - West Monroe : Robinson is the highest rated Louisiana prospect for next year, checking in as the No. 4 overall player in the class and No. 1 OT. A five-star prospect, Robinson is rated as a 99 by 247.

Leonard Fournette - RB - 6-0/215 - St. Augustine : Fournette also earned a five-star and 99 rating by 247 sports. Fournette - the nation's No. 1 running back - appears one spot behind Robinson as the No. 5 overall prospect in next year's class.

Laurence Jones - S - 6-2/200 - Neville - : Jones has a rare combination of size and speed at cornerback, but he could also play safety with ease, making him one of the most versatile defensive backs in the country. Rated a 94 by 247, Jones - a four-star prospect - checks in as the No. 22 overall prospect and No. 3 safety in the class.

Gerald Willis - SDE - 6-2, 246 - Edna Karr : Also rated a 97 by 247, Willis is currently the No. 33 overall prospect in the class and the No. 4 strongside defensive end, trailing only De'Shawn Hand, Malik McDowell and Soloman Thomas. The younger brother of Landon Collins, Willis should be the hottest defensive line commodity in Louisiana next year.

Speedy Noil - WR - 5-10/175 - Edna Karr : The second name in from Karr is Noil, who tore apart a DB-rich LSU summer camp in July. Noil, a four-star prospect, is rated a 95 by 247. He is ranked as the No. 5 wide receiver in the country and No. 63 prospect in the Top247.

Malachi Dupre - WR - 6-2/185 - John Curtis : A strong showing at LSU's July session bumped Dupre up the list, and he's now ranked as the No. 8 wide receiver in the country and No. 75 prospect in the Top247. Dupre is a four-star prospect with a 95 rating.

Garrett Brumfield - OG - 6-3/272 - U-High : Brumfield has made a strong push over the summer to move himself up the rankings, picking up a four-star and 94 rating by 247. Ranked behind only Isiah Wynn, Brumfield is the No. 2 offensive guard in the country and No. 87 prospect in the Top247.

Trey Quinn - WR - 6-1/192 - Barbe : Three spots behind Dupre on the wide receiver list is Quinn, who is ranked as the No. 11 wideout in the class and No. 102 prospect in the country. A four-star prospect, Quinn has earned a 93 rating by 247.

Will Clapp - OG - 6-3/270 - Brother Martin : The second guard to make the list out of Louisiana is Clapp, whose father, Tommy, played on the defensive line at LSU.

Kenny Young - OLB - 6-2/205 - John Curtis : The final name in the Top247 is Young, who checks in as the No. 179 overall prospect in the Top247 - meaning all 13 Louisianans on the list checked in before the 200th spot in the rankings.
