<p> 2013 Football Recruiting Rankings: Athletes</p>

National Signing Day 2013 is right around the corner and Athlon Sports is releasing its position-by-position rankings for the Class of 2013 based on the . Who is left on the board? Who has the best class at one position? Who had positional needs to fill? And, obviously, who are the stars of tomorrow fans can look forward to at every position?

The term "athlete" is used to define a player who is an elite talent but doesn't really fit into one specific position. Many cornerbacks could play wide receiver or running back. Many tight ends could play linebacker or defensive end. Many offensive linemen end up as defensive tackles. Athlon Sports tries to limit this position to just a handful of names, which is why Derrick Henry and Dontre Wilson are listed as running backs, Jalen Ramsey is listed as a defensive back and Ricky Seals-Jean is listed as a wide receiver.

The top "athlete" is Max Redfield from Mission Viejo, Calif. He is headed to and has the skill set to be a special hybrid safety-linebacker. Brian Kelly will have fun finding him a spot in the rotation next season. The former USC commit is one of the few bigger athletes in this year's class as most of the names appear to be headed for cornerback, running back or wide receiver.

The only other set of larger prospects are the two-sport Robinson twins from San Diego. Tyrell and Tyree are both committed to Oregon and both want to play football and basketball on the next level. Their 6-4, 190 pound frames afford college coaches plenty of versatility.
