The Rivals.com Five-Star Freshman Tracker is a look at how the top players in the Class of 2008 Rivals100 are faring in college.

Seven wide receivers were five-star prospects in the 2008 recruiting class, and four of them Alabama's Julio Jones, Georgia's A.J. Green, Southern Miss' DeAndre Brown and Notre Dame's Michael Floyd already are living up to the hype.

Jones, from Foley (Ala.) High, is the Crimson Tide's leading receiver. He has 28 receptions for 444 yards and four touchdowns. He hasn't had a TD catch in three weeks, but he is coming off his first 100-yard day as a collegian in a victory over Tennessee.

Green, from Summerville (S.C.) High, is the leading receiver in the SEC, with 39 catches for 662 yards and five touchdowns. He has had a TD catch in four of his past five games and has had two 100-yard games this season.

Brown, from Ocean Springs (Miss.) High, is the Golden Eagles' leading receiver. He has 46 catches for 747 yards and nine touchdowns. Six of those TDs have come in the past two weeks, in losses to Rice and Memphis. He has had three 100-yard games and one 200-yard game this season.

Floyd, from Minneapolis Cretin-Derham Hall, is tied for the Fighting Irish's lead in receptions, with 31. His receptions are good for 533 yards, and he leads the team with five TD catches. He has caught a touchdown pass in each of his past three games and has three 100-yard games on the season.
