There were some big wins on the recruiting trail over the last week that shuffles the top of the updated college football recruiting rankings.
Ohio State still owns the top spot by a wide margin, highlighted by the commitment of No. 1 overall recruit, quarterback Quinn Ewers, but the race for the No. 2 spot is heating up.
The Penn State Nittany Lions vaulted Notre Dame to claim the silver medal after a pair of commitments over the weekend. Four-star running back Kaytron Allen out of IMG Academy and three-star safety Jordan Allen out of Louisiana has James Franklin’s class up to 20 total commits. The 5-foot-11, 220-pound Allen is ranked as the No. 132 overall recruit and No. 10 back and could be the next great Penn State running back.
Notre Dame is holding steady at No. 3 after the commitment from four-star cornerback Benjamin Morrison out of Phoenix. He is the No. 315 recruit and No. 32 cornerback in his class.
Alabama, as always, can’t be ruled out to chase down Ohio State for the top spot. The Crimson Tide moved up to the No. 6 class after getting the commitment from IMG Academy offensive tackle Tyler Booker, the No. 39 recruit and No. 5 player at his position.
Clemson pulled off two wins with the commitments from No. 37 recruit, cornerback Daylen Everette and four-star athlete Keon Sabb, the No. 60 recruit. Everette is the No. 7 cornerback and Sabb is expected to be a cornerback for the Tigers. Clemson moved up six spots to the No. 13 class. The duo is from IMG Academy and high school teammates of Allen and Booker, so it was a big weekend for IMG Academy.
Oklahoma had the biggest win of the weekend with the commitment from five-star quarterback Malachi Nelson, but they also got a verbal from kicker Gavin Marshall and three-star tight end Kedon Helms to claim the No. 5 class.
