National Signing Day Breaking down top uncommitted prospects
08 February, 2018, 05:01
Yes, there was a 72-hour early signing period just before Christmas, but Wednesday is still the official National Letter of Intent Signing Day.
Wednesday's biggest victory was five-star cornerback Tyson Campbell of Plantation (Fla.), who chose the Bulldogs over Alabama and Ohio State.
Alabama has dominated the recruiting scene with seven consecutive No. 1 classes but the Crimson Tide have fallen out of the top three for the first time since 2007 and were ranked ninth.
Ohio State now holds the top recruiting class per 247Sports.com followed by Georgia and Texas. There were reports that Texas, South Florida and Georgia also were suspended for a brief time.
" Still a lot to unfold and it's not as if we're lacking storylines, we're just lacking storylines in terms of sheer numbers just because the player pool shrunk so much", said Tom Luginbill, ESPN's National Recruiting Director.
And for fans peaking ahead to 2019, Georgia already has the No. 1 class in the country and has already secured commitments from 3 5-star prospects.
Missouri football fans awoke Wednesday to find a unusual sight online: the program's Twitter account had been suspended.
