Community Prospect Rankings: #5

New, comments

It looks like Drew Stubbs has the 4th spot in the system locked up, so let's move on to spot #5. I have added everybody that appears in the top 10 for either Doug or John SIckels. Let us know if you think someone is missing. I have a feeling the direction the next two votes will go, but I don't want to be leaving someone off the list if you think we should have them as an option.
