More top 100 players: Nos. 11-20 | 21-30 | 31-40 | 41-50 | 51-60 | 61-70 | 71-80 | 81-90 | 91-100
Here is the final grouping in Yahoo! Sports' top 100 player countdown. We've unveiled the top players in groups of 10 each Sunday for 10 weeks.
"Top" doesn't necessarily mean the most pro potential or even the most talent. It's what the player has accomplished and how we think the player will do this season. Production does trump potential, though.
10. RB Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina
Particulars: 6-0/218, Jr.; Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes
Buzz: Lattimore played in seven games last season before suffering a torn ACL; he still rushed for 818 yards and 10 TDs. That gives Lattimore 2,015 yards and 27 TDs in his first two seasons. He has been a workhorse when healthy, with five games of 25-plus carries and 10 games of 20-plus carries in his 20-game college career. He also has scored 30 total touchdowns in those 30 games. He is an effective receiver, too, with 48 career catches. Lattimore especially loves playing against Georgia: 358 yards and three TDs in two games.
9. LB Manti Te'o, Notre Dame
Particulars: 6-2/255, Sr.; Honolulu Punahou School
Buzz: Te'o will be a four-year starter for the Irish and has been a tackle machine the past two seasons. He had 128 tackles last season and 133 in 2010; he has a combined 23 tackles for loss the past two seasons. Te'o has 17 games with double-digit tackles in his career. He was a five-star recruit out of high school and has lived up to the hype. Te'o, who is an Eagle Scout, went to the same high school as President Barack Obama.
