Three quarterbacks give the Cardinal the top class in the nation. Depth behind Andrew Luck is key, which is why Brett Nottingham, Dallas Lloyd and Darren Daniel were signed. Lloyd will go on his church mission right out of high school, and Nottingham is one of the best prospects in this year's class.
The Tigers tie with Penn State for the second best class. Along with four-star quarterback Tyler Gabbert, four-star Rivals 250 dual-threat quarterback James Franklin has a chance to be special. He has all the physical tools to be next in line behind Blaine Gabbert for the Tigers.
The Nittany Lions added some much-needed depth at quarterback with four-stars Robert Bolden and Paul Jones. Each has the physical tools to be a very good player, and they are both strong in the leadership department.
The Trojans' running back class is highlighted by five-star Dillon Baxter, who is already on campus. Throw in talented all-purpose back D.J. Morgan and the nation's best fullback in Soma Vainuku, and this class is truly outstanding.
Any other year and Oregon would have the best running back class, hands down. Landing five-star Lache Seastrunk was a big victory for the Ducks. He was nationally recruited by some of the best programs. Throw in Dontae Williams and Josh Huff, and Oregon has some explosive weapons heading its way.
The Aggies loaded up at the running back spot with three four-star rushers. D.J. Jones, Mister Jones and Ben Malena have different running styles, which could give A&M a lot of options to work with in the future.
The Huskies scored a home-run threat in Deontae Cooper, one of the best runners in California. He put up seasons with more than 3,000 yards rushing. He could be a guy that sees the field quickly for Washington. Jesse Callier was also a really good get from California.
Five four-star receivers make this UT class the best in the country, but the gap between Texas, Tennessee and USC is slim. Mike Davis has the ability to step on the field and play from day one. He's one of the nation's most confident receivers. Darius White is also a tremendous threat with his physical toughness and speed.
Landing Da'Rick Rogers, the top player in Georgia, was a major coup for the Vols on Signing Day. Rogers could have a Julio Jones-type impact at the next level. Throw in Justin Hunter - another Rivals100 prospect - and this group is special. Hunter's ceiling is as high as any other receiver in the nation.
Markeith Ambles and Kyle Prater are both five-star players and two of the best receivers in the nation. If Robert Woods - another five-star prospect - was in this group, USC would have the best class. But Rivals.com ranks Woods as an athlete because of his ability to contribute at a number of different positions.
The Gators' class consists of four four-star receivers. The headliner in the group is Chris Dunkley. He may also get a shot at early playing time. If he stays focused, he could become a difference-maker for the Gators.
The Mountaineers crack the top five after landing two four-star receivers with 6.0 rankings on the Rivals Rating Scale. Ivan McCartney showed at the Army Bowl that he's one of the nation's best deep threats. Deon Long has a great frame, which should allow him to also be a threat over the middle.
The Trojans landed the best tight end class … and it wasn't even close. Xavier Grimble is the nation's No. 1 tight end, and he picked USC over a host of other national programs. Christian Thomas and Randall Telfer are also both ranked as four-star prospects and in the top six TEs nationally.
The Tigers went for depth at the tight end position, landing four quality targets. The headliners in the group are two four-star prospects - Travis Dickson from the high school ranks and Ken Adams from junior college.
The headliner here is Gerald Christian, a four-star recruit. Christian has the perfect body and speed to excel on special teams right away. He also has the potential to be a three-year starter for the Gators.
Curtis White and Brandon Williams make up the Ducks' tight end class. Williams is one of the top junior college tight ends, and White is the nation's third-best high school tight end. If White comes in ready to compete, he will play as a true freshman. White is just too big and athletic to keep off the field.
The Tigers landed the best O-line class in the nation. The group has both quality and quantity. The Tigers scored five very good offensive linemen, led by five-star Shon Coleman. Coleman shot up the charts with a remarkable senior season and a dominating performance all week long at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Four-star lineman Eric Mack is the best of the rest.
The Sooners needed major help on the offensive line, and all five signees are high-quality prospects. Four-star standout Bronson Irwin is the headliner; he has a nasty streak, and he can play a number of positions. Austin Woods, Tyrus Thompson and Daryl Williams are also four-star prospects.
The gap between No. 1 and No. 3 at offensive line is extremely small. A&M fans could have a legit argument the Aggies signed the nation's best line class. Jake Matthews likely will be a star for the Aggies. Matthews has all the tools to be a future NFL player. Luke Joeckel and Cedric Ogbuehi also are talented prospects. Expect many of these Aggie line signees to play early.
The Wolfpack's class is led by one of the nation's biggest and best tackle prospects. Robert Crisp - who is all of 6-7 and 290 pounds - was a great commitment because he was so heavily recruited nationally. Crisp has the ability to be a franchise player at the tackle spot. Tyson Chandler from the prep school ranks should also see the field quickly.
The Nittany Lions landed five linemen, with two four-star prospects leading the way. Thomas Ricketts was a very good in-state get. Once Ricketts fills into his frame, look out. Miles Dieffenbach is also long and lean, but he plays with a real nasty streak.
