Barton Simmons, the Director of Scouting for 247Sports, released the player rankings for the Class of 2022 earlier this week. It features players from 36 different states but 107 of them come from the four major football hot beds — California, Florida, Georgia and Texas.

The Sunshine State leads the way with 34 players featured and the Lone Star State checks in with the second most at 31. California is up next with 26 players on the list and Georgia has the fourth-most with 16.

Alabama, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin are the other states with at least five players in the Top 247.

Shemar Stewart of Monsignor Pace (Miami) stayed at the No. 1 spot in the updated rankings but Quinn Ewers of Carroll (Southlake, Texas) jumped to No. 2 overall. He was the Sophomore Player of the Year after throwing for over 4,000 yards and 45 touchdowns while leading the Dragons to a Top 25 finish.

IMG Academy (Brandenton, Fla.) has the most players featured from one school with nine. Just behind them is St. Frances Academy (Baltimore) with five. Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) and Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) each have four while St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.), Alemany (Mission Hills, Calif.) and American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.) all have three.

Here's the complete list of the Top 247 for the Class of 2022 by state.
