Interesting list H...thanks for posting this.

The surprising state to me is California.......great weather in the most populous areas of the state with such a large overall population.

They're too worried about vegan diets.

Virginia always ranks high on these lists, we always produce good talent. Athletes out in the DMV/757, good QBs in the more affluent areas and big tough kids in my neck of the woods. But SWVA has produced more elite skill position kids than linemen, Thomas and Julius Jones, Heath Miller (who was a HS QB), Justin Hamilton, etc.. and currently a 4* TE who recently got Clemson and UT offers.

What I find intriguing is the D.C. isn't even a state and it leads the nation...

Thanks, H.

I'm shocked by DC also -- who knew??

Here were some others that I didn't see coming:

- I never thought NY was a football breading ground, but I also didn't think it would be that bad. NY isn't just a big NFL market -- its a big sports market, in general. At almost 20 million people they don't even cough up 2 blue chips a year???

- How about 9 states not having a single Blue Chip in the last 5 years, and one of them is...

- WV not having a single Blue Chip in 5 years is incredible; it is surrounded by PA (44), Ohio (79), KY (9), Virginia (57), & Maryland (36)... and also a CITY (DC) that has 15 over the same time period. That is absolutely brutal...
