It’s no surprise Alabama and Georgia met in this week’s national championship game considering all the 4- and 5-star studs sprinkled up and down their loaded rosters.
For anybody who thinks Kirby Smart’s and Nick Saban‘s teams are going anywhere any time soon, all they need to do is look at the top of the recruiting rankings. The Bulldogs and Crimson Tide again are among the best in the nation, and as long as they pull top talent, they’ll win games.
This year’s new early signing period removed a bit of the drama from the February finale, but that doesn’t take away from the intrigue. Sure, there already are incredible stories like Smart having six 5-star players already signed and Ohio State building yet another monster haul.
But there are still headlines to be made across the country.
The Bulldogs and Buckeyes are trying to dethrone Alabama’s (mythical) recruiting championship. New coaches like Tennessee’s Jeremy Pruitt, Nebraska’s Scott Frost and Florida’s Dan Mullen are scouring the nation to find players to help them quickly rebuild those programs.
Several top-shelf star high schoolers remain uncommitted, too. Battles will heat up and hearts will change when official visit season heats up over the next month. It’ll be interesting to see who stays hot and who winds up the biggest losers in the 2018 cycle.
Let’s take a look at some of the intriguing storylines as we hit the recruiting homestretch.
