National Signing Day

Let's cut the bull: recruiting rankings matter.

Does it make or break a staff to finish, say, eighth or 11th? Of course not. But if you're trying to win a conference title while finishing in the middle of the pack in your league, you'd better have some good coaches or hope the services are just flat wrong.

As National Signing Day unfolds we'll keep a running scoreboard of all four major services, while looking at the best overall classes, best Group of 5 conferences and the best classes across each class. Check back throughout the day.
