Top Recruiting Classes After National Signing Day: Another Coforepr Composite

Here is a ranking of the top recruiting classes in college football after National Signing Day.  It is a composite of the four major recruiting services:  ESPN, Rivals, Scout and 247.  Each is weighted equally.

This is not the final word; there will be changes because there are still uncommitted players out there.  Among them are 5-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson, 4-star defensive end Auston Robertson and 4-star defensive end Maxs Tupai.  The ultimate decisions of these young men and 15 others will impact the final ranking.

But for now (2/6/16)…
