Texas produces more FBS college football players than any other state (well, duh, right?)

Here's a fact that will make Texas high school football players and fans happy:

Texas produces more recruits for FBS schools than any other state. That's been true since 2008, according to the data in this story.

The big three are as you might expect: Texas, Florida and California. Large states with lots of football talent and tradition. There's a large dropoff after the top three, but the states that are next in line are:

4. Georgia 5. Ohio 6. Alabama 7. Louisiana

Last place goes to Delaware, but to be fair, that state is about the size of Six Flags over Texas. And it might have less people there on a Friday night.

You can check all of the data here.
