Who has the top college football recruiting class going into National Signing Day? Here’s how the top 50 CFB recruiting classes shake out.

National Signing Day for the class of 2023 is coming quickly as programs look to put the finishing touches on their recruiting hauls.

Most players took the opportunity to sign during the Early Signing Period in December, so movement in the recruiting class rankings is pretty limited these days.

Still, there are teams out there still vying for big-name recruits to add to their rosters.

Here’s what the 247Sports composite Top 50 looks like as things come down the wire, along with a look at which recruit headlines each class:

Alabama tops the standings with another stellar class for Nick Saban. They look set to outpace Georgia for the No. 1 class even if the Bulldogs manage to pull a commitment from undecided five-star tight end Duce Robinson.

Last year’s No. 1 recruiters, Texas A&M, have taken a tumble down the rankings this time around to match their stumble in the 2022 season. The Aggies sit No. 13 going into Signing Day.

Colorado has made waves with Deion Sanders as head coach, and he’s got a five-star commitment in the bag. However, the Buffaloes couldn’t rise higher than 29th in the rankings.
