High school football players from the states of Florida, California, Georgia and Texas account for more than half of the players in the 2018 Rivals250, an unsurprising portion given the four states account for nearly half all of Rivals250 players since 2006.

Florida, California, Georgia and Texas — in various orders — have secured a 12th consecutive year as the top-four recruit-producing states. The last time those four states didn't have the most Rivals250 recruits was 2006, when Jared Odrick (Lebanon, Penn.), LeSean McCoy (Harrisburg, Penn.) led 16 players from Pennsylvania, two more than Georgia. (The only tie came in 2009 when Ohio and Georgia both had 14 recruits.)
Nine states have at least 100 Rivals250 recruits over the last 13 years, while nine states have zero, which, along with West Virginia (two) is fewer than Canada (three).
Here's an interactive map with the total number of Rivals250 recruits for each state (plus D.C. and Canada) between 2006-18. Stay tuned for additional geographical breakdowns of the last 13 years of college football recruiting.
