The Rivals.com Five-Star Freshman Tracker is a look at how the top players in the Class of 2008 Rivals100 are faring in college.
Seven wide receivers were five-star prospects in the 2008 recruiting class, and four of them – Alabama's Julio Jones, Georgia's A.J. Green, Southern Miss' DeAndre Brown and Notre Dame's Michael Floyd – already are living up to the hype.
Jones, from Foley (Ala.) High, is the Crimson Tide's leading receiver. He has 28 receptions for 444 yards and four touchdowns. He hasn't had a TD catch in three weeks, but he is coming off his first 100-yard day as a collegian in a victory over Tennessee.
