MHN releases four Top 25 Nebraska High School Football Prospect rankings for each class: Preseason, Midseason, End of Season and Final. The results of each ranking released is primarily determined by the attention an athlete receives from colleges via scholarship offers and/or strong interest. However, the Midseason and End of Season rankings are also influenced by senior season on the field performances at the time of release. The Preseason ranking is a combination of college interest, previous year performance and hype, while the Final class Ranking (released after the February Signing Date) is weighted heavily towards actual scholarship offer(s).
The Midseason rankings presented below reflect the–known prospects–who are making the most noise through their senior year exploits.
