SEC bumped out of top spot?

Thanks to Alabama, LSU and Florida, the SEC has dominated the top two recruiting classes in recent years. But judging from how FSU has fared on signing day, that will change this year.

Stats & Info

Seminoles and Tide always neck-and-neck

In 2012 and 2015, Florida State trailed Alabama, who held the No. 1 recruiting class. Now, the Tide trail the Seminoles for the top spot. The last time FSU held the No. 1 spot, guess who was right on its tail?

Stats & Info

Bama hits No. 2 in ranks, but No. 1 all time

For the first time in four years, the Tide didn't take the No. 1 recruiting class in the current rankings, which fell to the Seminoles. However, thanks to 85 ESPN 300 commits over the last five classes, Alabama now has the most ESPN 300 commits of all time. Class Rankings (Insider)

Alabama finishes in the top three ... again

After signing the No. 1 class in each of the previous four years, the Crimson Tide finished No. 2 behind FSU. The Tide started the day ranked ninth, but then added six ESPN 300 prospects. Alabama has finished in the top three of ESPN's recruiting rankings every year since finishing 17th in Nick Saban's first season in 2007. Schlabach: Top storylines from signing day
