College football National Signing Day is now all said and done, and once again it was an eventful one. As always, some of the rich got richer, while some programs improved their future positioning.

While head coaches have an integral part in the recruiting process, it’s the assistants that surround them that do most of the grunt work. They spend a good majority of their time making phone calls and sending letters, trying to get some of the best talent in the nation to come to their respective institutions.

For that hard work, those guys deserve some rankings too, and that is exactly what the folks over at 247 Sports have done, listing the top recruiters in the nation.
