National Signing Day 2015: Eagles player high school rankings

In honor of National Signing Day, a day where the top high school football recruits decide where they will be attending college, I thought it would be fun to take a look at where current Eagles players ranked coming out of high school. Click a player's name for their Rivals.com recruit page. I couldn't find every player, especially the older ones. SB Nation has complete coverage of National Signing Day here.

Some things I found interesting:

• The Eagles only have three 5-star recruits. It's possible none of those three are back with the team in 2015. The team doesn't seem to be high on Barkley. Graham and Sanchez are both free agents.

• The Eagles 2014 draft class added: two four star recruits (Huff, Watkins) and five three star recruits (Smith II, Matthews, Hart, Reynolds II, Allen). Undrafted rookie free agents Cody Parkey and Trey Burton were also three star recruits while Kevin Graf was a four star recruit.

• Some players recruited at different positions than they are now: Nate Allen (dual-threat QB), Connor Barwin (TE), James Casey (pro-style QB), Lane Johnson (pro-style QB), Josh Huff (all-purpose RB), Nolan Carroll II (WR), Trey Burton (dual-threat QB)

• Some players look a lot different now than they did coming out of high school. Check out Mark Sanchez's big hair, for example.

• Unrelated to this list, the son of former Eagles tackle Jon Runyan, Jon Runyan Jr., signed to Michigan on Wednesday morning.
