Signing Day league breakdown (cont.)
1. Texas: The Longhorns closed strong in the last week and scored a stunner with Torshiro Davis on signing day.
2. Oklahoma: The Sooners loaded up on signing day with pledges from Courtney Gardner, Gary Simon and Damien Williams.
3. Texas Tech: The Red Raiders held on to all their commits and switched Casey Gladney from Alabama on signing day.
4. TCU: The Horned Frogs lost a few commits late but landed a big-time pair of teammates in James McFarland and Terrell Lathan.
5. Oklahoma State: The Cowboys signed two unexpected sleeper wide receivers in Jesse Vester and Austin Hays after losing Chance Allen to Oregon.
6. Baylor: The Bears managed to hold off other schools for four-star prospects Javonte Magee, Corey Coleman and Brian Nance.
7. Kansas State: The Wildcats went relatively heavy on junior college prospects again and four-star wide receiver Marquez Clark could have an early impact.
8. Kansas: The Jayhawk class would be rated higher if the transfers of quarterback Dayne Crist and Jake Heaps were included.
9. Iowa State: Led by three-star wide receiver Quan West, the Cyclone class was completed early in the day with no surprises.
Note: This story was released before the final commitments of Bryce Treggs, Randall Goforth, Darreus Rogers, Brandon Beaver and Bryan Harper.
1. Stanford: It was a humongous recruiting haul for the Cardinal, who landed five-stars Kyle Murphy, Andrus Peat and Aziz Shittu. Three-stars Zach Hoffpauir (Cal) and Michael Rector (Washington) flipped and four-star OG Brandon Fanaika did not switch.
2. USC: The Trojans had a great day landing five-star receiver Nelson Agholor and four-star recruits Leonard Williams and Devian Shelton. It could have been amazing if Murphy, Shittu, Peat and/or Cyler Miles picked them.
3. UCLA: First-year coach Jim Mora and his staff loaded up with wide receivers Jordan Payton, who had previously been committed to USC, Cal and Washington, Javon Williams, Kenneth Walker, a former Cal commit and Georgia recruit Ahmad Harris.
4. Oregon: The thrill didn't match De'Anthony Thomas' five-star flip last signing day but getting four-star Bralon Addison and three-star Chance Allen was a big deal for the Ducks.
5. Washington: Pio Vatuvei flipped from USC, Wallace came over from Oregon State and Hawaii lineman Shane Brostek signed. Getting Shaq Thompson is still the headline story for the Huskies.
6. Utah: The Utes landed massive offensive lineman Carlos Lozano and hours before signing day got defensive tackle Tenny Palepoi. Keeping four-star offensive lineman Cedrick Poutasi was crucial.
7. California: The Golden Bears' class got gutted in the last few weeks. There's no way around it. But keeping four-star Cedric Dozier and a handful of other four-star recruits means things are still OK.
8. Arizona State: First-year coach Todd Graham had a solid signing day with commitments from junior college running back Marion Grice, defensive tackle Jaxon Hood and defensive back Laiu Moeakiola. The big pickup came earlier this week in D.J. Foster.
9. Colorado: It was a relatively peaceful day for the Buffaloes, who didn't get any commitments on signing day but the coaching staff did all its work in the last few weeks, which includes landing two four-star defensive backs.
10. Oregon State: Oregon State lost Devian Shelton to USC and Cleveland Wallace to Washington but the Beavers have a solid class which includes four-stars Isaac Seumalo and Caleb Smith.
11. Arizona: The Wildcats were active in first-year coach Rich Rodriguez's first signing day with commitments from Dylan Cozens, Wayne Capers, J.T. Washington and Jamar Allah.
12. Washington State: Not much happened for the Cougars on signing day but coach Mike Leach and his staff did so much work leading up to Wednesday the class was already locked in.
1. Alabama: Nick Saban and Co. landed two Rivals250 defensive tackles Wednesday to put a stamp on a group that includes 16 players that earned four stars or more.
2. Florida: The Gators swung and missed on several big-name players Wednesday, but flipped five-star defensive end Dante Fowler from Florida State and still finished with a star-studded class.
3. Georgia: The Dawgs closed with a bang, getting a commit from five-star athlete Josh Harvey-Clemons to complement a group that includes two Rivals100 running backs - Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.
4. Auburn: The Tigers didn't get the typical national title bump, yet still landed 11 four-star prospects, including Rivals100 offensive tackle Avery Young and receiver Ricardo Louis, and have an average recruit rating above 3.5.
5. Texas A&M: Despite having a few players flip to other schools down the stretch, the Aggies will enter their new conference with a class that is more than SEC worthy.
6. LSU: The Tigers lost one big-time commit - linebacker Torshiro Davis - to Texas on Wednesday, but landed another in Kwon Alexander to complete a solid, if not star-studded class.
7. Tennessee: The Vols finished things off by landing talented junior college receiver Cordarrelle Patterson late, which helped offset some of the sting from losing two linebacker commits in recent days.
8. South Carolina: The Gamecocks grabbed eight four-star commits, including potential difference-makers Mike Davis, a running back, and Shaq Roland, a receiver, and did very well in neighboring Georgia.
9. Vanderbilt: Despite losing four-star commit Josh Dawson to Georgia on Wednesday, the Commodores have to be pleased, particularly with their impressive work done in Tennessee.
10. Mississippi State: The Bulldogs finished with a flurry Wednesday, adding talented linebackers Richie Brown and Beniquez Brown, who should complement a stellar group of defensive linemen.
11. Missouri: The Wednesday commitment of the nation's No. 1 recruit, receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, was one for the ages in Tiger Country and gave Missouri a boost as it heads to the SEC.
12. Arkansas: The Razorbacks missed on Green-Beckham, but nonetheless have a strong group of receivers coming in. They also flipped four-star linebacker Otha Peters from the Vols.
