Recruit 2022 College Football Leaderboards

The race for the No. 1 league in college football is intensifying as the start of the early signing period (December 15) approaches. Alabama and Georgia are already on track to meet in the SEC title game, but they’re also dragging it out on the recruiting trail, with the Crimson Tide able to claw past the Bulldogs and claim first place in the class rankings.

After signing the nation’s No. 1 class twice in the previous three cycles, Alabama looks set to make it three out of four. The Tide moved up after landing two four-star prospects. Taking advantage of the coaching switch at LSU, they were able to retire Aaron Anderson, a one-time Tigers commissioner in Louisiana, who is not only an ESPN 300 WR, but one of the most dynamic return specialists in the country and is quickly making an impact. on the contributor of special teams. They also landed a four-star defensive lineman in Isaiah Hastings, a prospect from Canada who played his final season in Florida and possesses explosiveness, strength and promising advantage.

There are also other contenders near the top of the rankings, including Oklahoma, which breaks into the top five. Replacing Oregon in the top five, the Sooners managed to pass West Coast school by beating one-time Ducks Nicholas Anderson, an ESPN 300 WR who gives the Sooners another potentially offensive weapon as he has quick feet and the ability to prolong play after the catch.

Texas A&M had a big uptick on the hiring path and is close to cracking the top five. The Aggies brought in the nation’s No. 1 in Walter Nolen, an explosive, agile, and motorized player who can give them an impactful presence in the trenches. Their offensive class also got a boost as they landed in-state ESPN 300 WR Chris Marshall, who can be a big target with his height, speed and superb ball skills.

ESPN 300 commits: 14 | Previous ranking: 2

SEC rank: 1 of 14
Top offensive commit: OT Tyler Booker (No. 7)
Top Defensive Stake: OF Jeremiah Alexander (No. 11)

Alabama is back in the fight for the No. 1 overall class. The Tide has pledges from multiple players who rank in the top two in their ranks, including the No. 1 OT Booker, a big, flexible, effort-oriented player with all the tools to become one of Alabama’s next dominant offensive linemen. They scored big at RB and landed the top rated Emmanuel Henderson, an explosive runner with good eyesight. ESPN 300 QB-DT Ty Simpson is the son of a college coach who possesses a compact and smooth delivery. Getting five-star Alexander back into the mix after being disbanded during his junior season was big, as the best in-state prospect can be an explosive and fast front-seven defender. Robert Woodyard, also a top-10 in-state prospect, is another strong pick on defense.
