    With the exception of Massachusetts and maybe Utah, those top states are all big producers of talent at the high school football level. At least, based on my understanding. Maybe Mass and Utah are better than I understand.Report

    If they’re counts, the numbers are very small. There wouldn’t be so many ties otherwise. Maybe the first three states are high, but things tighten up quickly.Report
