    Read the full article here: http://traditionsportsonline.com/ea-sports-ncaa-football-14-top-rated-incoming-freshmen




    1) 84 OVR - Robert Nkemdiche RE #90 - Ole Miss

    Duh. The next "big" thing in the SEC.



    2) 83 OVR - Laquon Treadwell WR #86 - Ole Miss

    Considered by most to be the clear #1 WR in this class. Oxford rejoices with now having the best defensive AND offensive freshmen in the game.



    3) 83 OVR - Jeremy Castro LOLB #10 - UCLA

    Uh, what? Must have been a glitch in the matrix here. UCLA fans won't complain.



    4) 82 OVR - A'Shawn Robinson DT #54 - Alabama

    The rich get richer. Bama adds another monster defensive linemen to their already stocked stable.



    5) 82 OVR - Alex Collins HB #3 - Arkansas

    Collins is a do-it-all running back that will flourish in the Razorbacks new offense.



    6) 82 OVR - Carl Lawson LE #52 - Auburn

    Will be a sack machine in the SEC in a few years. Like most defensive linemen in the SEC, Lawson is very fast.



    7) 82 OVR - Dymonte Thomas FS #1 - Michigan

    Very athletic defensive back that should cover most of the field.



    8) 81 OVR - Vernon Hargreaves III CB #23 - Florida

    The most complete corner in this year's class. Great coverage ratings out of the gate.



    9) 81 OVR - Derrick Henry HB #3 - Alabama

    A monster running back that the rest of the SEC will hope gets buried in the depth chart at Bama. Don't count on that happening.



    10) 81 OVR - Eddie Vanderdoes LE #3 - Notre Dame UCLA

    The now defected Notre Dame recruit takes his talents to the west coast.



    11) 81 OVR - Mike Mitchell MLB #44 - Ohio State

    Urban Meyer lands the most football ready inside linebacker in the nation.



    12 ) 81 OVR - Derrick Green HB #3 - Michigan

    The Wolverines are wild for what is believed to be the future of their offense in Ann Arbor.



    13) 81 OVR - Alex Anzalone LOLB #34 - Florida

    Hits like a linebacker, runs like a freight truck. Anzalone projects as a linebacker but was a 1000 yard rusher his senior year.



    14) 81 OVR - Montravius Adams DT #99 - Auburn

    Extremely explosive and strong (85) which means he will find his place collapsing pockets for the Tigers.



    15) 81 OVR - Ricky Seals-Jones WR #4 - Texas A&M

    The big-framed athlete has the physical tool set to be a #1 option for the Aggies.



    Best of the rest:

    16) 81 OVR - Keith Ford HB #20 - Oklahoma

    17) 81 OVR - Frank Herron RE #43 - LSU

    18) 81 OVR - Matthew Thomas ROLB #5 - Florida State

    19) 81 OVR - Antonio Connor SS #34 - Ole Miss

    20) 81 OVR - Ty Isaac HB #2 - USC

    21) 80 OVR - Reuben Foster MLB #2 - Alabama

    22) 80 OVR - Su'a Cravens SS #3 - USC

    23) 80 OVR - Jalen Ramsey CB #17 - Florida State

    24) 80 OVR - Thomas Tyner HB #22 - Oregon

    25) 80 OVR - Kendall Fuller CB #11 - Virginia Tech

    No Vonn Bell.:( Also looking forward to seeing how they rated Eli Apple, Jalin Marshall, Dontre Wilson and Ezeikel Elliot. I imagine the cutoff for 80 overall freshmen wasn't at 25, and that 26-x still have some very talented first years? Also, no Hackenburg?

    Thanks for this though! (y) Now if we could only get program prestige ratings ;)

    Vonn Bell was right outside the top 25.

    I think Mike Mitchell could be a little faster. Now all I need to see are fastest players then I can make my dynasty choice.

    I assume the top freshman QB is Christian Hackenburg. I'd be curious to know how he is rated as that could make Penn State much more appealing this release.

    79 OVR. 70 Speed and 82 Throw Accuracy bring his overall rating down a few points.

    They are both big backs with a lot of the same skills. Henry just does it with 25 more lbs on his body.

    Fastest player? Also could you tell me who the top rates freshman was on Texas? Don't want it to be a request thread but Id assume Darius James or Kent Perkins.

    Oh and one more thing pretty please. Could you tell me how many QBs are in game for Texas?

    I'm assuming they gave henry I pretty nice truck and stiff arm rating then.

    Why do I feel like he would have been rated lower if he committed to Miami. He should be fun to play with though. I for sure will give him a shot.

    Miami has two badass running backs on the game and an overrated qb. They got shown some love.

    Not true. Derrick Henry is rated higher than Collins on almost every recruiting site and he is rated lower than him on the game. Alabama has 3 morefive stars that didn't make the top 25. OJ Howard , Robert foster, and Jonathan Allen are all consensus top 25 guys and didn't make it.

    I know what you are saying, my point was everyone thinks guys will be rated higher at a different school. Either, in the video game or in recruiting
