The 2019 recruiting cycle is set to come to an end within the next few weeks as the country's top high school football players decide where they want to play their collegiate football.

With the end of the recruiting cycle in sight, SB Nation took a look back at the 2019 recruiting class and broke down where the top talent comes from. Not surprisingly, California, Texas, Florida and Georgia were the heavyweights in terms of where the top high school talent plays.

According to SB Nation, California and Texas both produced 48 blue chip (four and five star) recruits. While those two states produce a large amount of talent, there are schools on the other side of the spectrum.

In fact, 12 states did not produce a single blue chip recruit.

  • Alaska, Idaho, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin and Wyoming all did not have a four or five star recruit from their ranks.

California, Texas, Georgia and Florida combine for 47.5-percent of the country's blue chip recruits. It's easy to see why Kirby Smart and company have done a great job recruiting over the past few seasons.
