"The average star ranking is near historic levels".

Not to be outdone, Alabama picks up a commitment from the nation's No. 1 cornerback, moments after his teammates, another top corner, Tyson Campbell, committed to Georgia. The Tide had a relatively small class (18 signees), which kept down its ranking.

First Twitter suspended the Texas football account. The vast majority of top prospects signed back in December and most FBS schools had signed the bulk of their classes. Still, simple math (truthfully, the kind appreciated by most fans - of any sport) will tell you that if two-thirds of the prospects already are signed, that leaves a third still out there.

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald made that point clear early this morning when he tweeted "6:34 a.m. that's a wrap on #NSD18 and #NUView18".

The new coaches in the Southeastern Conference got their first opportunity to compete with one another over the last two months on the recruiting trail. Washington's class was rated by 247sports.com as almost dead even with Southern California for the best in the Pac-12 and clearly among the top 15 nationally.

"We were very excited with the guys who got on board with us today", said GMC coach and athletic director Bert Williams.

MS also was right around top-30, solid work by new coach Matt Luke, coming on the heels of the NCAA sanctions that will keep the Rebels out of the postseason for another season.

GMC went 8-2 past year and finished with another top-20 ranking, but the sights are set higher for 2018.

Texas, Penn State and Miami round out the top five.

Meanwhile, Ohio State announced some good news of its own.

Coming off an 8-5 season on the field, 2018 will be huge for MI to change the trajectory. The day helped USC, again, assert itself as the Pac-12's top recruiter and gave the Trojans top-10 classes in three of the past four years. The Seminoles picked up Wednesday signatures from in-state ESPN 300 defensive lineman Malcolm Lamar, ESPN 300 athlete Tre'Shaun Harrison, a Seattle native further accentuated Taggart's West Coast connections.

Miami: It's very hard to place Miami into this category considering the Hurricanes finished with a top-10 class.
