2023 Recruiting Rankings College Football Recruiting Rankings, The 2023 recruiting rankings are coming to a close. And with National Signing Day on the horizon, now is the time to take a look at each team’s class. Then, it’s time to pick the player most likely to have a stellar career at his new college.
Texas had a great 2023 recruiting class, and the Longhorns should have another solid one in 2024. That’s why we’ve ranked them as the best in the Big 12.
The Crimson Tide has a loaded 2023 recruiting class that includes nine five-stars. This is a great class for Nick Saban and his program.
Alabama is also able to bring in two quarterbacks in this class, which is a big bonus. Both signal callers are committed to the Tide and Saban is excited about them.
Georgia has won back-to-back national championships and continues to recruit at a high level. The Bulldogs are a powerhouse in the SEC East and will look to build upon their dominance next season.
The Bulldogs entered Thursday with the second-ranked class per 247Sports Composite rankings. They got a big boost this week with the commitment of four-star defensive lineman Jordan Hall from Jacksonville, Florida.
Texas, led by Steve Sarkisian, has assembled a talented class of 2023 recruits. They currently rank third in the nation.
The Longhorns have a strong crop of instate prospects. That is including the top-ranked quarterback in the 247Sports Composite, Arch Manning. The class also includes running back Cedric Baxter Jr.
The Buckeyes have the fourth-ranked recruiting class in the country heading into Early Signing Day. They have 20 commitments and sit just behind Alabama, Georgia, and Notre Dame.
The class features one five-star recruit (Brandon Inniss) and eight other top-100 players. It’s a strong group that fills the needs of head coach Ryan Day and should help the team compete for national championships next season.
There were a few surprises on the recruiting front, but this class is solid. It’s got two tackles and two interior linemen in Luke Montgomery and Josh Padilla, as well as a potentially elite offensive tackle in Miles Walker.
Baylor has been one of the nation’s most successful athletic programs over the past decade. Winning its first national championship in 2021 and sharing the last two Big 12 regular-season titles. Now, head coach Dave Aranda is looking to get some players in next season that can help the Bears make a run at a second straight title.
As a result, the Bears have a strong 2023 recruiting class already in place. And are expected to have a couple of high-profile targets in this year’s early signing period. Below are four recruits that could be headed to Texas in 2023 and whose performance on the field has impressed Aranda.
Michigan’s 2023 recruiting class ranks 18th in the nation and third in the Big Ten. It made one last splash on National Signing Day by flipping three-star defensive end Cameron Brandt from Stanford.
The Wolverines have a lot of talent in the trenches. Both offensively and defensively, including a pair of four-star prospects. Amir Herring and Nathan Efobi are blue-chip recruits that are expected to help the team immediately.
Illinois is bringing in a lot of great talent this recruiting cycle. It has already added a top 500 recruit, Malik Elzy, and is now putting together the class of 2023.
The Illini are adding a lot of talented young players and Bret Bielema is slowly improving the program on the field. Having some of the top recruits in the country is a good sign for the future of the program.
Mississippi State had a very successful recruiting day on Friday. The Bulldogs signed four-star quarterback Chris Parson and three-star quarterback Jaxon Smolik. The additions give the program a solid foundation to build off of with head coach Zach Arnett coming in.
The Bulldogs also landed four-star wide receiver Creed Whittemore. Whittemore is a high school senior from Buchholz, Alabama who has shown he can play in multiple positions at the college level.
Oregon began the week looking like it was losing its grip on a once-promising recruiting class. But head coach Dan Lanning and his staff flipped that narrative in a big way. Despite losing five-star quarterback Dante Moore. The Ducks landed a pair of top defenders in edge rusher Matayo Uiagalelei and safety Peyton Bowen.
The Ducks also made a splash by adding a four-star cornerback from California, Rodrick Pleasant. That added up to one of the biggest signing days in modern recruiting history.
