Rivals unveiled its updated class rankings this week as the majority of senior prospects put an exclamation point on their high school careers. This is one of the most critical rankings updates because only a select few more prospects will suit up again in an All-American game in January.
Among those are a handful of borderline five-stars that are right on the cusp of that highly coveted ranking. As the Rivals analyst team gears up for its time in Orlando and San Antonio, we take a look at four prospects that could wind up as five-stars to close out the 2020 cycle.

Sunday: Class of 2020 state rankings
Initially, Sanders was a four-star athlete projected to play tight end at Oklahoma. This offseason, Sanders flipped his commitment from the Sooners to the Tide and is ticketed to be an edge-rusher in T-Town. This season, Sanders has been dominant on both sides of the ball for Denton Ryan. He’s instinctual and a natural playmaker wherever he is lined up on the field. He enters the All-America Game as a borderline five-star, but if he can showcase his ability to get after the quarterback and drop back in coverage on the big stage, he could snatch his fifth star. - Sam Spiegelman, Texas/Louisiana Recruiting Analyst
Capehart is incredibly quick for his size and definitely has a five-star ceiling. His development from a technical standpoint has been encouraging, but he still divides the analyst team when it comes to five-star status. If he turns in a big week at the Under Armour All-America Game, he could erase all doubt. - Rob Cassidy, Florida Recruiting Analyst
