This article will rely heavily on the private scrimmage we were able to attend the day before the event, which was far more competitive than the actual game, and provided significant insight into the strengths and weaknesses of everyone in attendance.

We continue with the players we evaluated ranked between 11 through 150 in the 2009 high school class.
